Civil War: Wolverine

(Art by Humberto Ramos and Carlos Cuevas)

A tie-in to Mark Millar's epic 'Civil War'.  As the focus of the Civil War becomes the factions for and against the Superhuman Registration Act, only Wolverine is determined to hunt down Nitro, the supervillain responsible for the conflict.  Against the wishes of the X-Men and the Avengers Wolverine embarks on a full-blown vendetta which will lead him into conflict with the likes of Prince Namor, Sentry and S.H.I.E.L.D. 

This is a great book about Logan just, if you'll pardon the pun, cutting loose.  Let's face it, the reason we all love Wolverine is because he's a bloodthirsty rogue and this book plays to those elements. 

There's also an interesting epilogue in which Logan describes what he experiences every time he is taken to the brink of death (for example; when Nitro's explosive power leaves him as little more than a shiny skeleton).  This ending perfectly illustrates Wolverine's other great character aspect, which is his tragic loneliness.
