Wolverine kills Jean Grey in new solo book, just because mutants can now be resurrected

In this fluff-coated CBR article, they tell that the writers of a new Wolverine solo are resorting to cheap sensationalism in the 2nd issue, with a scene that's reminiscent of the time Bullseye originally murdered Elektra Nachios in Daredevil back in the early 80s, and there's at least 3 characters who're put through the wringer:
The Wolverine creative team wasted no time by making life difficult for the popular X-Man, as he mistakenly slaughtered Jean Grey, Domino and Kid Omega. This brought flashbacks to the alternate Old Man Logan reality where Mysterio tricked Wolverine into killing the X-Men, but at least this time their fates aren't as dire. The House of X and Powers of X miniseries revealed that the X-Men have mastered a form of mutant resurrection with The Five -- a special group of X-Men who can combine their powers in tandem to bring any mutant back to life.
And that's an excuse? I don't think so. This is another example of writers too bankrupt to try stories like pursuing bank robbers, drug traffickers and terrorists, wasting time instead on plots where the hero is riddled with guilt over "blind accidents", and sensationalizing violence, along with desensitization to the same.

Wolverine did have the potential as a solo star, but it was worn out years ago when successive writers kept turning to pathetic, narrow storylines like these, and now, jarring violence seems to be all they can think of.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
