Synopsis:

Old Woman Laura begins! In the not-too-distant future, the world is a utopia where heroes have succeeded in bringing peace worldwide. At the head of this utopia is none other than Laura Kinney, who’s passed on her mantle of Wolverine to Gabby and has become to Queen of Madripoor.

 

What You’ll Need To Know:

Unfortunately, All-New Wolverine is coming to an end. This is a solid comic from Marvel but they continue to end several of their comics. We will still see Laura and Gaby in X-Men Red and a new series X-23. She has had to battle with her own clones, people who made her a weapon, even Captain America. It had recently been announced that Gabby is gay. I thought it was bizarre and unnecessary since she was a child, but now we have an older Gabby so that works.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


In This Issue:

So we begin the issue in Madripoor about 20-30 years into the future, where Wolverine confronts arms dealers. We learn Gabby is the new Wolverine and Laura is the benevolent Queen of Madripoor. Mutants and the other superheroes had succeeded in creating a peaceful world. The heroes won. Kamala Khan is the president. I think that is a swing at 45, but Marvel is known for making political statements that stir the pot. There shouldn’t be anything wrong with a Muslim female president, but I feel like people may think of this as being too “controversial” or social justice-y. Hopefully most people don’t take it as such. Laura has made a huge difference in the world as a superhero and she fought in the Doom World War, and even against Thanos. She has lived quite a life, and announces she is dying. Laura is kind of stoic, so it doesn’t freak her out as much as it should. She just wants to fulfill her bucket list, to save her sister who betrayed her early on in the series, and kill Dr. Doom. We have a lot of small details, like Jonathon pictured on her wall with his babies, and she talks about the death of one of her love interests in other comicbooks, Hellion. The next issue Death In Latveria raises a lot of questions with its title alone.

Summary
This issue is a good read because it does a great job with flashbacks and retouching important events. I would love to see the Doom War in the X-23 storyline. Clift hangers always keep me on my toes and we definitely have a big one. What could Gabby have done? The art by Rosanas is solid and detailed.
Good
  • Laura has aged GRACEFULLY! How is she still so hot?
  • Small detail, Jonathon had babies!
  • In the future, we have a superhero as president
Bad
  • Heavy political statements, that could stir the pot.
  • The cover isn’t actually Laura, it’s Gabby.
  • Not like Old Man Logan, if you were expecting that sort of thing
