I'm back! And reading! And maybe even blogging! No promises!

Heh.

I admit, I don't tend to follow a lot of Marvel books that don't have Nick Fury or Captain America on the cover, and I particularly fell behind during all the Secret Invasion stuff...

So Um...

Wolverine has a son now? I'm going to take a wild guess and assume that the relationship is full of resentment, murderous intent, and probably teenaged emo angst. I'm not sure if I would be more amused to be right or wrong.

Does the kid have emo hair? Please tell me he has emo hair!

In all seriousness though, I like long-lost kid plots. And it DOES make sense for Wolverine. Given the long life and general inability to keep a memory in his head that doesn't involve massive trauma, I'm kind of surprised he doesn't have more kids running around.

    He and Mariko had an adopted daughter. When they killed off Mariko she was supposedly taken in by the Silver Samurai. Don't know what came of that...

    And like Colossus, Wolverine has a babymama up in the Savage Land.

    you didn't miss Daken in Secret Invasion; he showed up in Wolverine: Origins #10 (2007). which is about when i dropped it for sucking so bad.

    and he has a mohawk. at least he did the last time i checked.

    The mohawk's still there as well as the immense, swirling tattoos and he's had endless face and heel turns as well as mindwipes and so on since being introduced.

    So at least you can say he takes after his father, I suppose.

    Nick Fury's long-lost kid story was something less than stunning. It started out decently in that hardcover Howard Chaykin drew (was it called Nick Fury / Wolverine: Scorpio Rising?), but the two followups were pretty lackluster. Fortunately, Mikel Fury hasn't been seen or heard of (except for occasional entries on lists of SHIELD agents) since 1996. With luck, Daken will suffer a similar fate.

    It's an emohawk.

    You pegged it: resentment, murderous intent, teenaged emo angst, and some kind of mind control/manipulation plot. This is X-Men, after all. Gotta have some way to absolve the antagonists so they can join the team later, you know.

    Oh, and last I checked, he didn't know that Wolvie was his sperm donor yet.

    He has the EMOEST of hair. Plus, he's mean, resentful and a little nuts. Just like a regular teenager!

    "Oh, and last I checked, he didn't know that Wolvie was his sperm donor yet."

    nope, he knows.

    one of the reasons he joins Osborn's new team is to "piss off his father," i.e., Logan.

    Oh oh, what if Logan somehow time traveled before Sabertooth was born, did Sabertooth's mom, and Wolverine actually is Sabertooths' father...and then Logan forgets, and Creed is left fatherless tell his mother tells him that his father was a man named Logan. This whole thing going to further explain why Sabertooth hates Logan so much.

    ....too much?

    I still can't get over the fact that the son's name is "Daken".

    Like the 80's hair band!

    "Rockin' with Daken"!

    BWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAAA!!!!!!

    And maybe Logan could also somehow push John Locke out a 30-story window.

    and the worst part? his teenage emo son is SIXTY years old.

    Some people obviously never outgrow their angst. Still...a sixty year old teen?

    It is to laugh.

    "And maybe Logan could also somehow push John Locke out a 30-story window."

    Yes! Wolverine travels back to the late eighteenth century to retrieve famous political philosopher and pamphleteer John Locke, whom Wolverine then transports back to 21st century New York so he can shove him out of a modern sky scraper. But wait! It's not Logan, but Daken in that Wolverine costume. The troubled youth is donning his father's costume, time-snatching all the inspirational figures of the American revolution, and bringing them to our era to be publicly murdered by "Wolverine," all in an attempt to get back at dad for those years of missed soccer games.

    Next issue: Thomas Paine!
