COMIC BOOK REVIEW - Weapon X: The Hunt for Weapon H
By The Masked Medic
Finally getting back to reading some Marvel Comics, and I thought I’d restart with Weapon X. This was the name of the original program that created Wolverine, but now it’s a team full of these raging killers turned heroes? Well most of them anyway!
‘The Hunt For Weapon H’ has our team of Wolverine, Sabertooth, Domino, Warpath and Lady Deathstrike on the hunt for a new Weapon, created by the same people that experimented on them. The only snag is that this weapon doesn’t just have the claws and ridiculous healing factor, but also has all the powers of the Hulk which makes him the most powerful weapon yet. Despite the already impressive team, Wolverine stops to pick up X-23 as backup as they fight their deadliest enemy yet.
I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the first novel in this series, and this one continued in the same vein. The team dynamic is so natural and hilarious that there are moments when you forget that some of these guys are mortal enemies. I did find Weapon H a bit over the top, but there you go, it was going to be done at some point!
The artwork was pretty good, and each of the covers was quite different in style, but again, of a decent quality. Overall, I liked this novel, and I think Weapon X is definitely a series I could see myself recommending to other comic book readers.
This is what I mean. These two have such a history and now they’re on the same team?
It’s so hard to pick, but in this novel, it’s probably Domino or X-23!
Story Arc: ★★★½
