Wolverine: Origins, Volume 6: Dark Reign Reviews

    Wolverine and Daken have reached an uneasy peace where the two can get along for a few pages without popping their claws and having at each other but Daken’s character is still shady with his true motivations remaining to be seen. The book opens in a made up African nationa where Cyber is hiding out. Wolverine and Daken are looking for Romulus, the lynchpin behind all the horrible things that has happened in this series and seemingly the mastermind behind the Weapon X programme. If you thought Wolverine’s history was convoluted before, Daniel Way adds another layer of bizarreness to it by introducing the strange history of the Hudson family who seem to have a connection to Logan and in turn Daken. I won’t spoil it here partly because I don’t understand it. Is this now canon or is it like the Ultimates? Anyway the X-Men make an appearance when Daken predictably turns on his pop and tries to steal the precious carbonadium - the only material that can permanently damage Wolverine and cripple his healing factor - to graft onto him so he can kill Logan. The guy who does this to Daken has remained a mystery to me - this tinkerer character has been nothing but trouble for Wolverine but nothing is done to limit his movements or imprison him and as a consequence the guy keeps showing up inconveniently and making stuff worse for ol’ Logan once again. The book has decent art from Yanick Paquette and Doug Braithwaite who’ve replaced Steve Dillon - an artist who is unfairly criticised for his drawing style which I cannot understand. He is brilliant and missed on this book. Daniel Way puts in a solid effort in this, perhaps overlong, series introducing Daken to the Marvel Universe but after six volumes I think he should be wrapping this up very soon as the story is beginning to feel a bit stale. “Dark Reign” has some good scenes but it’s nothing special.

    More father/son drama and much physical trauma between Wolverine and his son Daken. Pretty enjoyable with mostly decent art.

    This is the 2nd time I've read this book, and I enjoyed it quite a bit.As part of the Wolverine Origins, this collection focuses on Logan and his son Daken, and their quest to find and take down the mysterious Romulus who has been orchestrating their entire lives for his own nefarious purposes. It's nice to see someone who's a near match for Wolverine, but who he still has the experience over to have a slight advantage on at some points. Important appearance by Nick Fury setting up more of Wolverine's family tree/history; also X-Men make an appearance when once again Cyclops should know better than to get in the way of this family...

    I agree with Sam's review. This story's entertaining but also very convoluted and to fully get yourself immersed in it, you have to imagine this entire series' existence as happening inside its own bubble. As it is, other than the Daken character popping up here and there in the Marvel Universe, I can't think of any way this series has helped re-define the status quo for Wolverine in the MU, as no mention of other characters have been made in the [many, many] other books he's in.As retcons go, this series has been a gold mine, but will they stick or be swept under the proverbial rug in time?

    It's rare for one of these Big Event Tie In books to be worth much, but this one was a lot of fun. Romulus' plan for Daken is revealed, and we get a nice surprising ending. This series wavers a lot, but I like this one.One complant: the bridge between the previous book and this one has to be the shortest team-up ever. Daken had a rather significant change-of-heart somewhere between books. I can only imagine that was Marvel, Incorporated's doing and not Way's. But it will work out best in the long run--we can't have Wolverine and Daken fighting in this book forever without it getting tedious.

    At a certain point, these books stop being fun and instead become a burdensome chore. It's almost as if Wolverine writers are being harvested from soap opera writing rooms. Long lost sons. Enemies back from the dead. Amnesia. So repetitive and altogether a bore. They just can't let Wolverine be his own man. They have to have him constantly entrenched in a war with a supreme puppet master and if not fighting Sabertooth, then I guess it's his son, Daken, who is really just another version of Victor Creed. This book gets three stars for Cyber, the Masamura blade and bringing in the Tinkerer.

    Didn't care about Wolverine & his son's relationship or the fmsaily mystery. The writer loses points for making Cyclops take the sword to meet Daken. That was a really dumb move that no leader of his level experience woul dmake.

    The initial story with Cyber is fair, though Daken abruptly double-double-crossing Wolverine is a bit anticlimatic. Things pick up when the X-Men enter the picture. The integration with the Dark Reign is unfortunately light, but gives some nice context to Daken's position in the Dark Avengers.

    Ok, a bit repetitive with Wolverine and Daken but I suppose this story had to be told to move the character of Daken on.

    It was ok. I usually like Wolverine related comics, but this one felt flat to me. His whole back story is too jarbled for me to particularly care about.

    Wolverine and his son Dakken battle each other and also battle others together. Looking for the original RomulusGood art and decent story.

    Accidentally got volume 6 instead of 1, so there were some events spoken about that I didn't know. Still, a good volume about Wolverine and his son. Apparently Wolverine has a son!

    Despite my not reading them in order, they are still extremely entertaining, the drawing is fantastic and the storyline is as compelling as ever.

    Another stellar comic by Mr. Daniel K. Way! Illustration was well done as well.
