Old Man Logan was a popular storyline that ran through the regular Wolverine title (and one Giant Size) for eight issues back in 2008/2009. Written by Mark Millar with art by Steve McNiven it is set fifty years in the future where supervillians have won the day and Logan is long since retired. I won’t spoil anything here, but it is well worth hunting down in trade format.
The story has proven to be so popular it has caught the eye of Doom who made it a domain on Battleworld. There are even rumors of it being the basis for Wolverine 3. I’m skeptical of that, but it would help to explain how ageless Wolverine has aged so much since the 2000 release of the first X-Men movie.
After the break we’ll look at Old Man Logan #1 and #2. Or as Ryan likes to call them, #1 and #1.5. We’ll get into that…
