Wolverine – Old Man Logan | Comics
The world we know was gone after the major super-villains of Earth has formed an alliance and has surprisingly taken control over the United States overnight after a massive prison break, which is now divided in territory among them. Doctor Doom, Red Skull, Magneto and Abomination has rise up to power and is ruling over their own territory. Magneto is later replaced by a new Kingpin and The Incredible Hulk takes place of The Abomination. The part of the land that Hulk and his Gamma-Powered Family now owns is now called the "Hulkland", where lives the former X-Man and a man who used to be known as the most dangerous man on Earth; Logan, or better known as Wolverine.

Logan now lives a non-heroic, non-violent life with his wife Maureen and two young children of him; Scotty and Jade. He has given up his bad-ass Wolverine persona and stopped using his Adamantium claws ever since the villains took over the world. When the initial takeover began, Logan was tricked by Mysterio and went on a killing spree where under Mysterio’s illusion, killed all X-Men members, giving him one of the biggest shocks in his life. That moment, he vowed to never use his claws again. Now that the old man needs money to pay his house rent so he took the job offer from Hawkeye to guide him to his destination to deliver a package. On their way, they face an army of Moloids, a Venom symbiote infused Dinosaur and the new Kingpin. But in a world without rules, can Logan keep his claws from not unsheathing again?

Final Grudge Match
After delivering the ground breaking "Enemy of the State" storyline, fan-favorite writer Mark Miller (Kick-Ass, Reborn) has returned with another another bang; an eight part futuristic storyline "Old Man Logan", that is set on an alternate timeline. The story ran from issue #66-72 of the third volume of monthly ongoing Wolverine comic-book series, plus, a ‘Giant-Size Old Man Logan’ issue from Marvel Comics was released in 2008. Artist Steve McNiven (Civil War, New Avengers) served as the penciller for this story and the late Michael Turner did a variant cover for the arc. This storyline is a primary source of inspiration for the third live-action solo Wolverine film, Logan (2017) except for the rest of the landscape than his personality. Also, following "Death of Wolverine", Marvel has brought Old Man Logan to their regular continuity after the incursion of Multiverse, which caused "Secret Wars" and he joined X-Men's ranks again in "Extraordinary X-Men – X-Haven".

Old Man Logan | Comics

old man logan comic
Old Man Logan | Comics
Long before everything gone under the rule of super-villains, Logan was a mutant with animalistic nature and a healing factor that made him into a Weapon X operative Wolverine and eventually an X-Man. He was leading his life in adventure with the X-Men, until the villain uprising when Mysterio tricked him into killing all of his fellow teammates and afterwards, his grief made him abandon his heroics.

In his exile, he met Maureen and settled down with their two kids in Hulkland. Then he went on a road trip with Hawkeye as a hired guide, killed Red Skull and came back too late to pay his rent money. As the Hulk gang got bored and murdered his family, he unsheathed his claws again for revenge and wiped out the entire Banner-Family with ruthless efficiency.

The incursions of worlds have destroyed the Multiverse (Time Runs Out) and he found himself on God Doom's Battleworld. He ended up in Deadlands, where he found She-Hulk among the undead and convinced her to help him get out. Awoken in a new world, Logan was unaware of the fact that his counterpart of this world is long-dead, yet he decided to kill the ones who doomed his reality.

So, he faced Totally Awesome Hulk but backed out upon learning it was not Banner himself. In search of Hawkeye, he found Kate Bishop, leading him to a meet Captain America. Logan was found by Storm; the current leader of X-Men and is enrolled into the team after a time-displaced Jean Grey convinced him to (X-Haven). He also fought in Civil War II and the Inhumans/X-Men War.

Back for Redemption

Following "Death of Wolverine", Marvel was in a crisis for Wolverine in their publication and they made X-23 take the mantle. However, there was still a void and so; they used the events of "Secret Wars" to bring the version of the hero who was also having a live-action movie released in 2017 titled "Logan". Although, this version of Wolverine is considerably slow and weak, he still is the best there is at what he does.

Civil War | Comics

When the young mutant group of heroes, the New Warriors tried to get higher ratings for their own TV Show by ambushing a few second-string super villains like Cobalt Man, Coldheart, Nitro and Speedfreak, their plan went wrong. The villain Nitro caused an explosion during his escape attempt which killed more than 600 people, among them 60 were confirmed to be children.

This event sparked an anti-mutant hysteria in the aftermath of M-Day and the necessity for superheroes to be kept in check and thus the Super Human Registration Act, which was already being discussed by a few super people earlier, is passed within a week. According to the Act's rule, every super powered person both heroes or villains should reveal their secret identities to the government and to register with them as well.

Captain America was approached by S.H.I.E.L.D. to work with them in support of the Act because of his influence on the community but his quick refusal made him a fugitive of law too and he narrowly escaped his capture at the hands of S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives. Captain America formed the Secret Avengers with Cable, Daredevil, Falcon, Bill Foster, Hercules and Luke Cage, who were opposed to the Registration Act. Iron Man grouped the other super peoples to the Act's support as well as Spider-Man on his side. Upon being convinced by Tony Stark, he even revealed his secret identity in front of public as a support to the Act.

Cap's team is soon joined by Young Avengers, Cloak and Dagger as they occasionally fights S.H.I.E.L.D. "cape-killer" units and other criminals. Tony on the other hand believed that, oversight of heroes is a great idea. Then, along with Mister Fantastic and Hank Pym, he created Prison 42 for captive heroes and villains alike who will not comply with them, located inside the Negative Zone. Peter Parker realized that Tony is monitoring him with his new Iron Spider suit and then took a tour of the Negative Zone; he quickly realized that he joined the wrong side.

He sneak out of Stark Tower with Aunt May and Mary Jane but Iron Man released a few villains on his tail to bring him back. It was the timely intervention of Punisher who saved Spidey and brought him to Cap's secret base. Soon, the whole super human community became split into two teams. A major conflict between the divided heroes occurs and the effect is going to shake the core of everyone’s relation with each other.

Heroes Divided by War

"Civil War" has changed the dynamics of heroes in the whole Marvel Universe from inside out as heroes who previously fought alongside against world-ending threats became each others' opponent. Doctor Strange and the team of X-Men remained mostly neutral during this event, except for Wolverine, who went on a solo mission to take down Nitro himself. The story is later adapted into a live-action film, the third movie of the Captain America trilogy titled "Captain America: Civil War" from Marvel Studios on 2016.
