Old Man Logan #1: Berserker!
But the stories of his future where told in flashbacks and more on how he tries to figure out who sent him to the present time as what he claims to be that the villains where led by none other than Bruce Banner, the original Incredible Hulk?
Jeff Lemire certainly crafted a good story that still leaves everyone having doubts IF this is the real Logan who died recently or just another type of storytelling similar to how they brought back Jean Grey who turned up to be from the past. But with “Old Man Logan” its one of the underrated series nobody seemed to bother since everyone thinks this is just another a ‘fill-in’ on making sure the ‘present’ Wolverine stays dead and bring a similar character from an alternate future to tell its story.
It’s a brilliant concept of an old familiar character and put him as a ‘man out of time’ where he was brought back to the present time unrelated to the one that died. Interesting enough “Old Man Logan” could be from an alternate future of Earth, but it’s too early to speculate and he only cares right now is taking down the villains who killed his family and this something new to the Wolverine mythology that everyone has gotten used to but still not the one you’ll expect to follow.
Like all Wolverine stories this one doesn’t follow the tradition as you see an “Old Man Logan” trying to avoid a ‘future’s end’ to his timeline. The next issue isn’t going to be an easy kill as the last page reveal it he has to contend to taking down the big one namely the Hulk, but this one isn’t as incredibly familiar but totally awesome.
