January 2002 Part 7/8
Writer: Mark Millar
Artist: Thomas Derenick/Adam Kubert
Plot: Sabretooth and Wolverine fight and Sabretooth reveals he has claws too now thanks to Weapon X and has four on each hand. Meanwhile the Weapon X escapees and the Brotherhood take on the Weapon X staff and Wraith prepares to evacuate and realises Xavier isnt in his control anymore and shoots him. Beast hutns down Cornelius for revenge but stops when he finds Cornelius trying to save the Professor. Blob grabs ahold of Wraith’s helicopter so he can’t escape whilst the imprisoned X-Men prepare to kill Wraith. Sabretooth tries to drown Wolverine who stabs him in the penis and tackles him off a cliff. Jean intervenes and stops the other X-Men killing Wraith as it is not their way. When Rogue tries to stop her, Iceman intervenes. One by one the X-Men come around except for Storm who wants to kill Wraith most and blows up his helicopter after it escapes Blob. Nightcrawler intervenes and saves Wraith just to stop Storm from becoming a killer. Wraith pulls a gun on Nightcrawler but is shot three times in the back by Nick Fury who has arrived with backup. He offers amnesty to everyone but they do not trust him until Wolverine arrives and says he called him. He also reveals he killed Sabretooth. Later Professor X is recovering and Jean keeps him company and is told Magneto isn’t dead.
Buy Pile Rating: Buy (3)
Story: This series was definately the strongest out of the three for second arcs as it was consistant and enjoyable but from memory I won’t like what comes next!
Art: Didnt even realise there was a second artist until i looked it up.
