In the midst of the flight, he is attacked by a bunch of Hand ninjas ready to take him down. But they really were no match for him as he is "The Best There Is". He makes a mess of the Ninjas on board and then reaches to Japan and meets Yukio, who updates him about the current situation there. Logan's adopted daughter Amiko is now in a relationship with Shingen Harada, the current Silver Samurai and son of Logan's long time foe; the original Silver Samurai.

Wolverine – Get Mystique | Comics

Wolverine – Get Mystique | Comics
After the initial resolve to the crisis of "Messiah CompleX" event and the disbanding of their team, Cyclops asks Wolverine to track down X-Men's long time enemy and a personal adversary of Logan; the enigmatic mutant shape-shifter Raven Darkhölme, who is also known as the mutant terrorist Mystique, to bring her down for her betrayal to the X-Men (X-Men - Blinded by the Light). Logan starts looking for Mystique's trail and eventually sniffs her out within a few hours but still she managed to dodge him. In Wolverine's disguise, Mystique has killed a local woman in Afganistan and when Logan came looking for her, she framed him for the murder of that woman. The local Afgans didn't take this matter very lightly and they fired at will to him after capturing him.

After simply taking those bullets and passing out, when he regains consciousness, Wolverine locates her again but she narrowly escaped by blowing up an entire mosque in Iran, leaving trail of bodies behind and then dodged Logan again a few more times. Wolverine is getting too much obsessed to take her down this time for good and seems like he would stop at nothing to get to Mystique. But is it really that easy to hunt down a mutant shape-shifter, so cunning and deceitful like Mystique, even with all that enhanced mutant senses and a rapid healing factor? Also, some past histories between Wolverine and Mystique are explored details in flashbacks that explain why they did not stayed in touch even though they knew each other for a very long time and how did it all came to a bitter end.

Hulk by John Byrne and Ron Garney | Comics

Banner managed to befriend Sheriff Jonas Tolliver of Faulkner, who invited Bruce to stay at his place for the night. The next day, Banner suddenly fell in sick and turned into Hulk again before tearing everything apart around him. The green giant decimated the nearby farms, barns and every other establishment like a raging storm and people could do nothing to stop his rampage. When his path of destruction crossed with Sheriff Tolliver himself, he pointed his gun at the monster although knowing it would do nothing.

Surprisingly, Hulk somehow managed to pull his punches and turned into Banner again before being taken into police custody. Upon putting Banner behind bars, Sheriff Tolliver calls the Mayor and updates about the situation so that he can call in The Avengers to take Hulk in. As Iron Man was assembling Scarlet Witch, Vision and Wonder Man to take Banner in, reports of a commercial airliner being destroyed by the Hulk hits TV.

As he frequently turns into the Hulk and goes on rampage, he meets the Man-Thing, who reaches to the swamp and is abducted by Owen Candler. A small group of Avengers consisting Iron Man, Vision, Wonder Man and Scarlet Witch arrives in time to save Banner from Candler and his evil plan but Banner turns into the Hulk again and engages in a battle with these mighty members of The Avengers and that's not the end of all.

Hulk eventually meets his long time rival and one of the only few people who can actually take him down; the feral X-Man called Wolverine and they both did a number on each other after a long time. When they are both exhausted and done for, The Thing of the Fantastic Four awaits for his fair share of clobberin' time with the Jade Giant. All these time, the Hulk’s actions were being secretly controlled by the villainous Tyrannus.

Hulk by John Byrne & Ron Garney

Legendary comic-book talent John Byrne (Alpha Flight, Uncanny X-Men) envisions the Hulk like no other and when artist Ron Garney (Amazing Spider-Man, Captain America) aids him with his extraordinary drawing skills in doing that, a great saga is to be created. This two industry giant worked together for Marvel Comics back in 1999 with the re-launch of the new ongoing series featuring the green goliath after the first volume previously ended following its 474 issue run.

Trail of Mindless Destruction

Byrne and Garney pitched the long story without a big core plot with only the green giant meeting many heroes and villains and fights his way out as well as with his own demons. Although, the story pits the Hulk in the way of many important characters of Marvel Universe, having fight against them too at some point but overall, the entire arc serves as a personal journey for both Banner and Hulk.
