Exclusive Preview: Hunt For Wolverine: Mystery In Madripoor #2
The good news is that Wolverine isn’t dead anymore. But he really should have left a message for his teammates on the X-Men. Some of Wolverine’s closest friends believe that his body was stolen, and they’ve made it their personal mission to get it back. Unfortunately for them, someone laid a trap in Madripoor and the X-Men quickly fell into it.
In our exclusive preview for Hunt For Wolverine: Mystery In Madripoor #2, writer Jim Zub and artist Thony Silas drop us into a flashback to the ‘80s era X-Men. More specifically, it’s a callback to the Kitty Pryde and Wolverine miniseries that cemented their emotional bond with each other. In that story, Kitty was brainwashed by Ogun, a demonic ninja who remade her in his image in a bid to kill Wolverine. She very nearly succeeded, but Wolverine survived and he helped Kitty recover her senses and her confidence.
Back in the present, Wolverine would really come in handy if they knew where he was. Kitty, Domino, and Jubliee were the only ones who managed to escape from Viper and her new Femme Fatales. Rogue, Storm, and Psylocke were easily beaten in less than a minute, which only makes things more difficult for their teammates. If even the powerhouse members of the X-Men couldn’t beat the Femme Fatales, then how can Kitty and her allies turn the tables and save their friends? They’re a long way from home, and no one is coming to help.
Here’s the official description from Marvel: “ONE X-MAN DOWN, FIVE TO GO! The new Femme Fatales claim their first victim (but not their last)! What is Magneto’s connection to Logan’s disappearance? Can Storm, Kitty, Domino and Jubilee survive when the whole city is hunting them.”
