Due to many people liking my blog on my “Top 5 moments in X-Men: Mutant Massacre,” I have decided to do another one of my favorite scenes from a comic book! This time, I am doing my top 5 shocking moments from the “Wolverine” story, “Old Man Logan” and here is my list of the most shocking moments in that comic! (Check out my review)!
5) Hawkeye gets Shot
Throughout this book, Hawkeye, the only other surviving super hero, has been accompanying Wolverine in delivering a secret package so that he could get into the Avengers team again. Except that it turns out that S.H.I.E.L.D agents were tricking Hawkeye into getting them the super soldier serum and he ends up getting shot in the head. This scene was shocking to me because since Hawkeye was the only other surviving super hero next to Wolverine, having him be killed off in this story really made this story even darker than before.
4) Red Skull kills Captain America
The scene where Red Skull becomes the President of the United States after killing Captain America was a truly shocking scene to say the least. Probably the most frightening thing about this scene was the fact that Red Skull ended up having a trophy room where he keeps the Avengers’ costumes in display cases to show his victory in defeating the Avengers.
3) The Hulk Gang kills Wolverine’s Family
After Logan’s encounter with Red Skull, he tries to make it back home with the money he promised to pay back the Hulk Gang, only to find out that the Hulk Gang had viciously killed his family while he was gone! This moment then causes Wolverine to go back to his old violent self as he pledges vengeance against the Hulk Gang! This scene was truly emotional since the idea of having a family member killed is truly frightening for anyone.
2) Wolverine kills the Hulk
The last few pages of this book were an absolute gore fest as Wolverine goes head to toe with the evil Hulk Gang killing them all. Wolverine then comes across Bruce Banner, who has become evil and is much more powerful and stronger than he ever was before. The scene that really shocked me was after the Hulk eats Wolverine; Wolverine ends up popping out of the Hulk’s belly, killing him. It was so shocking because you never would have thought that Wolverine could ever survive being eaten and then rip his way out of a person’s belly!
1) Wolverine kills the X-Men
This scene topped my list because for one thing, you never would have thought that Wolverine would ever hurt the X-Men and another thing, who would have seen Mysterio actually trick Wolverine into killing his friends by creating an allusion where Wolverine thought that he was fighting the villains? It was truly frightening seeing the X-Men being all chopped up and lying on the ground while Wolverine looks on in horror as he saw what he had done. This causes him to not put up his claws since this memory haunted him for years.
So, what moments shocked you the most in “Wolverine: Old Man Logan?”
