The X-Men film franchise in general has been a mixed affair, with some truly wonderful films and some very lackluster offerings, some mind-blowing sequences or scenes and lots of very underwhelming ones.

With all the doom and gloom real-world subjects I’ve been focused on lately, it was a welcome reprieve to finally get to catch up with reading last year’s X-Men/Guardians of the Galaxy crossover.
Whatever we think about the entire All-New X-Men business in the first place – specifically the bringing of Professor X’s original X-Men from the past into the contemporary X-Men world – one of the most interesting things it has led to so far is The Trial of Jean Grey; the big-scale All-New X-Men/Guardians of the Galaxy event (both titles incidentally written by Brian Michael Bendis) that occurred early last year.

Below are some of Wolverine’s greatest stories/covers.

So the stage is set and his fate is written in the stars, so to speak. As X-Men readers await the last breaths of one of the X-Men world’s most permanently popular icons, the plot thickens in the highly anticipated Death of Wolverine 4-part send-off.
