I am absolutely mesmerized by the first cover! Something about it looks very dystopian! It`s almost symbolic – Wolverine being a symbol of post-modernity, of science gone wrong and of the individual caught in between!

I always loved the story in UXM #205. While it is never really stated can you imagine the torture that Lady Death-strike and the boys subjected Logan to prior to the begining of this issue to cause hime to be that messed up? It gives gives me the creepy crawlies just thinking about it.

I agree Templedog.

I like how the story opens up that way, leaving your imagination to fill in the blanks. I could be wrong but it feels like comic books don’t do things like this anymore.

BTW, I liked it when Lady Deathstrike looked like this. She looked scarier this way.
