Don't pick up Old Man Logan #34 looking for a love story. The straightforward art might fool you into dismissing this as a goodies-vs-baddy comic, and a shallow read along those lines will come off underwhelming. There are much more sinister nuggets buried in Ed Brisson's script. Though unearthing them takes a little too much effort, the questions they raise about Mariko are definitely worth asking.

Original story The of Earth-807128 has been conquered and divided among supervillains, with territories belonging to the (later conquered by the ), (later conquered by a new ), , and the , who has named himself President of the United States.
Superheroes have been wiped out of existence, with the few survivors in hiding. lives with his wife Maureen and young children Scotty and Jade on a barren plot of land in , , now part of the territory known as Hulkland. Needing money to pay rent to his landlords the Hulk Gang (the grandchildren of the Hulk and his first cousin ), Logan accepts a job from a now-blind to help him travel east to the capital of New Babylon and deliver a secret package (which Logan assumes to be drugs).
Logan and Hawkeye encounter several diversions on their journey. They rescue Hawkeye's daughter (who seems to be an aspiring Spider-Girl) from the clutches of the new Kingpin. She murders Kingpin and reveals her intention to seize his territory of Falls (formerly ). They escape a cluster of who are destroying cities by sinking them from beneath the surface.
They then get chased by a -infused dinosaur (imported from the ), but they are rescued and teleported by the and . Throughout the story it is reiterated that the "Wolverine" persona died the day the villains attacked and that since then, Logan has refused to use his claws (however, in Old Man Logan #14 (2016) Logan used his claws once after this event, albeit briefly, to destroy the Silent Order's leadership).
reveal that on the night the attack happened, a group of 40 supervillains attacked the . Unable to locate his teammates, Logan slaughtered the attackers to ensure the safety of the mutant children. As the last "attacker", Bullseye, was killed, Logan realized that the entire assault was an illusion created by and his perceived enemies were actually his fellow . This destroyed Wolverine emotionally and mentally, and he fled the mansion and wandered away to a train track in shock and shame.
Though he made a subsequent suicide attempt by allowing a freight train to run him over, Logan could not actually kill himself, but had effectively killed "Wolverine". Writer signing a copy of the collected edition during an appearance at in Manhattan When they arrive at the capital, Hawkeye delivers his package to an group hoping to begin a new team like the .
The package contains Super-Soldier Formula, enough to form an army, but Hawkeye's clients expose themselves as undercover agents. They shoot and kill Logan and Hawkeye. Logan's body heals, and he awakens in Red Skull's trophy room amongst the armaments and costumes of fallen superheroes.
Without using his claws, he kills Red Skull's men and engages Red Skull himself, eventually decapitating him with .

Upon arriving, Logan discovers that, in his absence, the Hulk Gang murdered his family and left the bodies unburied. His neighbor, Abraham Donovan, states that Logan's family was killed when the Hulk Gang got tired of waiting for their payment. This results in Logan finally unleashing his claws.
He seeks out and slaughters the Hulk's grandchildren Beau, Bobbie-Jo, Charlie, Elrod, Eustace, Luke, Otis, Rufus and Woody before encountering Old Man Banner himself who displays monstrous strength, even in his human form.
It is implied that the gamma poisoning in his body had begun to deteriorate his sanity in his old age. Banner reveals that while the murder of Logan's family was intended as a message to others, he really just wanted to get Logan angry enough to fight him because he had gotten bored with being a "super-villain landlord", like the others. In his Hulk form, Banner is enormous, bigger than the Hulk has ever been shown before, [ ] and easily defeats Logan and then consumes him.

With nothing left of his old home, Logan then says he plans to defeat all the new world villains and bring peace to the land—with himself and Bruce Banner, Jr. being the first members of a new group of superheroes—before riding off into the sunset.
Secret Wars (2015) When the Multiverse was destroyed and was created, a different version from another universe of "Old Man Logan" is reborn on the Battleworld domain called the Wastelands, a re-creation of his native reality with his memories still intact, although he does not know how he arrived in Battleworld.

After explaining this new development, he investigates the head's origins. He visits Hammer Falls and meets with the dying Emma Frost, and he learns that the head is from beyond the Wastelands, so he begins traveling beyond his domain.

The battle that ensues is intervened by the Thor who attacked Logan earlier and as she argues with Apocalypse, Logan flees and hides. The Thor then demands to know to where he had run, but no one answers. Angry, she attacks both the X-Men and the Horsemen with a lightning bolt and then looks for Logan through the domain. When she is near the domain's walls, Logan climbs it and attacks her from behind.

He tries to convince her to throw him out of the Deadlands when the zombies find them. In a desperate attempt to save Logan's life, She-Hulk grabs him and jumps as high as she can to throw him out of the Deadlands as he had suggested, ultimately sacrificing her own life to do so.

Logan chases them, but he is stopped by the arrival of . After gaining Logan's trust and bringing him to , , Rogers reassures Logan that this is not his past by showing him the -coated corpse of his younger self.

He finds her, but she is still a child. The arrive at Killhorn Falls with Lady Deathstrike and attempt to hunt down Logan. When Logan searches for Maureen's missing dog, he discovers its corpse which was killed by the Reavers.
As the Reavers massacre the town, Logan singlehandedly kills them all and confronts Lady Deathstrike before saving Maureen. He is wounded multiple times, but Logan defeats Deathstrike. As she leaves, limping, Logan falls unconscious. Realizing that he failed to protect Maureen from the chaos, Logan decides to hunt down Lady Deathstrike.

He is gunned down by Eito's henchmen, but he heals and then slaughters them all. Before he kills Eito, Logan interrogates him and learns that Lady Deathstrike is in a remote village. Logan travels there, noting that it is where he and Maureen had attempted to find refuge in his past. The village is seemingly abandoned, but he finds Yuriko chained to a wall, begging for his help. He is then ambushed by a clan, the Silent Order. Four days later, he awakens in a well and attempts to climb out, but he is shot down by Sohei, the Order's leader.
Once Logan succeeds in climbing out of the well, he sees he is in a temple and Lady Deathstrike is in a cage. He is attacked by Sohei and the rest of the Silent Order. Logan is overwhelmed by the horde of ninjas, so he has no choice but to free Lady Deathstrike. After Logan and Yuriko manage to kill all of the ninjas, she attempts to kill Sohei, but is cut down by him, causing her to stumble back into the well. Just as Logan attempts to confront Sohei, he is assaulted by his unwitting enforcer, a mutant child called the Silent Monk, whose older self Logan had killed in his timeline.
The Monk has had a vision of his death and tries to kill Logan by throwing him into the well over and over again. Lady Deathstrike throws an arrow into the Silent Monk's thigh, causing him to fall in. Logan then threatens to kill the young mutant unless Sohei releases he and Yuriko. Sohei calls Logan's bluff, but knows that Yuriko is more than willing to murder a helpless child.
Sohei agrees to their demands, just as the Silent Monk regains consciousness and lashes out. The Monk transforms into a giant creature as his powers run wild. Logan convinces the young boy to , assuring the Monk that Logan's future will never likely come true. The young boy then realizes that Sohei has been manipulating him and subdues Sohei and the remaining Silent Order ninjas.
Logan offers to take the Silent Monk to X-Haven, to which he accepts. One day at X-Haven, Logan is approached by Cerebra, who informs him of Jubilee's disappearance.
Logan begins his search by going to Jubilee's apartment, only to find her infant son, Shogo, by himself.

Logan finds Jubilee who, also under Dracula's control, begs him to save her.
Just as he lets his guard down, Dracula attacks Logan from behind, biting him. Logan fights Dracula as his healing factor fights off the vampirism. The Vampire King easily beats the weakened Logan, who then passes out. Logan wakes up in the dungeon, along with the Howling Cammandos. As Dracula taunts them, Jubilee begins resisting his control.
Logan encourages her to fight back just before and break in to free everyone. Dracula threatens to kill Jubilee as Logan approaches him. Now free from his control, Jubilee throws Dracula towards Logan, who then impales him. After a brief scuffle, Orrgo grabs Dracula and exposes him to the sun.
Logan then proceeds to decapitate Dracula, freeing his thralls. Logan instructs Cerebra to throw Dracula's head into the sun in order to prevent or at the very least, delay his resurrection. Later, Logan spends time with Jubilee and Shogo over dinner.
Logan awakens in a desert, his memory hazy. Logan realizes that he is somehow back in the Wastelands, as he is attacked by the Venom .

They are confronted by the Warlord, who is revealed to be a fully grown Bruce Banner Jr. As the Warlord beats Logan, Puck urges him to remember what has happened.
It is revealed that the X-Men came to help, but were converted by the Brood and that Logan's experiences in the Wastelands were an illusion created by Jean Grey.

best dating old man logan comic - Old Man Logan #34 Reviews (2018) at ComicBookRoundUp.com
Cover by Steve McNiven. (Marvel Comics) Wolverine: Old Man Logan By writer Mark Millar & artist Steve McNiven | Marvel Comics This is the original Old Man Logan story, eight issues collected into a graphic novel that tells a complete tale. It takes place in a future where supervillains rule the United States, the X-Men and other superheroes are gone, and Wolverine is an elderly pacifist living in isolation with a family and a healing factor that isn’t what it used to be.
We see firsthand that Wolverine is a shadow of his former self when he chooses to take a beating from one of the Hulk’s brutish, hillbilly children rather than pop his claws to defend himself. But that all changes when Hawkeye shows up on Logan’s farm asking him for getting to the other side of the country now ruled by Marvel’s worst bad guys.
And thus ensues a grim road trip filled with more than a few dangerous stops. As the journey goes on, we learn more about what happened to the X-Men and why the notoriously scrappy Wolverine decided to put away his claws for good.
The series made a strong impression with its cinematic presentation, western trappings, and brutal, grisly violence. Watching the trailers for Logan, it’s easy to see how it was inspired by this comic. However, we should point out that the Old Man Logan comic makes full use of the Marvel Universe, including elements from Thor, Captain America and Spider-Man, which won’t be in the movie.
New elements are being used in Logan instead, like X-23, Donald Pierce and the Reavers, so don’t expect to see those in the comic. You could just stop reading here, as Old Man Logan tells a complete story with a beginning, middle and satisfying end.
But if you're itching for some more stories about this version of Wolverine, then read on. Cover by Andrea Sorrentino. (Marvel Comics) Wolverine: Old Man Logan Vol. 0 - Warzones By writer Brian Michael Bendis & artist Andrea Sorrentino | Marvel Comics The next volume of Old Man Logan came when Marvel’s Secret Wars event shattered the Marvel multiverse and stitched the world back together made from different realities.
This means the worlds of Marvel Zombies, Marvel 2099, Planet Hulk, House of M and more existed all on the same planet.
Old Man Logan’s hellish future was one of these, and so we got to see grumpy, elderly Logan take a tour of the different zones and try to figure out how the heck this happened. The first issue of this five-part mini-series shows us an emotional meeting between Logan and Emma Frost in the Old Man Logan reality, but the rest is essentially Logan traveling around getting his mind repeatedly blown as he encounters different versions of iconic Marvel characters that are long dead in his world.
It’s not much of a spoiler to say that after Secret Wars ends and the world is returned to normal, Logan finds himself in the main Marvel Universe, which leads to the next entry on our list. Old Man Logan in the Present Marvel Universe (2016-present) After joining the main Marvel Universe, Old Man Logan got a new ongoing comic book series by writer Jeff Lemire and artist Andrea Sorrentino that is still running today.
Here’s what each volume is about. Wolverine: Old Man Logan Vol. 1: Berzerker Cover by Andrea Sorrentino. (Marvel Comics) When Old Man Logan arrives in the present day, he’s understandably confused.
After finding his bearings and realizing that the horrible future of his reality has yet to occur, he decides to set out on a mission to make sure it never happens.
He makes a hit-list of key villains (and heroes) that he plans to assassinate in hopes of preventing his future. Wolverine: Old Man Logan Vol. 2: Bordertown Cover by Andrea Sorrentino.
(Marvel Comics) Old Man Logan had a family back in his reality, so he goes on a journey to find Maureen, the woman he would eventually marry and have children with. He winds up in the small town where she’s from, but it’s not long before Lady Deathstrike and the Reavers find him there.
Considering that the real Wolverine is currently dead, having an older version him suddenly pop up out of nowhere obviously gets the attention of his greatest enemies. They want to take out Logan for good and will go through everyone in the town to get to him.
After that story ends, one extra chapter sees Jean Grey using her gifts in an attempt to help Logan deal with the looming threat of his future. The storytellers use this as an opportunity to reveal some crucial events in the war the heroes lost against the villains that weren’t covered in the original series. Wolverine: Old Man Logan Vol. 3: The Last Ronin Cover by Andrea Sorrentino. (Marvel Comics) Wolverine wakes up at the bottom of a well, only to be shot full of arrows when he climbs to the top, causing him to plummet back to the bottom.
You eventually find out who put him there and why, which leads to a conflict with a new Omega-level character. We also get some flashbacks to when Logan first fell in love with Maureen and the harrowing circumstances that eventually led to them starting a family together. What’s Next Cover by Andrea Sorrentino. (Marvel Comics) The next volume of this series (Wolverine: Old Man Logan Vol. 4: Old Monsters) hits on June 13 and sees Logan team up with the monsters of the Howling Commandos to take on Dracula and save Jubilee.
You can wait for the trade paperback collection or just read the single issues (Old Man Logan #14-19). After finishing that, you’ll catch up to the current storyline (starting with Old Man Logan #20) that sees Old Man Logan go to space. Yup, space. Other Old Man Logan Appearances There are a few other comics where Old Man Logan pops up, so be sure to read these if you want the full experience. Fantastic Four: World’s Greatest Cover by Bryan Hitch.
(Marvel Comics) By writer Mark Millar & artist Bryan Hitch | Marvel Comics Even though this was written before Old Man Logan was published, this story takes place afterward and features Logan (now going by The Hooded Man) and the Hulk’s fully grown son teaming up with The New Defenders.
