WOLVERINE #7 (1988)
Wolverine and Hulk may have spent the majority of their history trying to execute each other, yet WOVLERINE #7 began an unlikely alliance forged in the rising crime wars of Madripoor. Hulk, under the guise of hitman Mr. Fixit, runs afoul of Wolverine, who's roaming the slums of Madripoor as Patch. Marvel masters Chris Claremont and John Buscema find that in alternate identities these adversaries can do some serious collaborative damage.
UNCANNY X-MEN #268
Flashback to Madripoor, 1941, and witness the momentous first meeting of Wolverine and Captain America as they team up to battle the menacing alliance of the Hand and the Nazis who have kidnapped a young Natasha Romanov, the future Black Widow, with plans of training her to become the Hand's deadliest assassin. UNCANNY X-MEN #268 teams legendary artist Jim Lee with X-Pert Chris Claremont to bring us an aggressive tale that spans from World War II to modern day.
BLACK PANTHER #41 (1998)
With the death of MGM Grand, a rap superstar with influence greater than New York City's mayor, the Avengers investigate, but due to a baffling imposter claiming to be T'Challa, Earth's Mighiest Heroes get distracted, leaving the mission in the hands of Wolverine. Senator Rakim believes that MGM's death is connected to a growing black ops division that threatens to swallow human society from the top down...but not before they choke on Logan's claws.
The claws come out when Wolverine and Black Cat get transported to a remote island by a mysterious foe claiming to be the resurrected Kraven. This fiend has brought the heroes to the island for a pack of wealthy competitors to engage in the most dangerous game of all: hunting humans. Unfortunately for the hunters, Wolverine's the best at what he does, and what he does ain't pretty. Check out the beginning to an epic arc that will keep you tense and cravin' more!
WOLVERINE: FIRST CLASS #1
Return to the beginning of Kitty Pryde's first mission for the X-Men. To test Kitty's prowess, Xavier sends this untested recruit out to investigate a powerful mutant in a desolate West Virginia town where the citizens have gone ragefully insane. Under the tutelage of Wolverine, the X-Men's roughest warrior, Kitty comes to learn how skewed Xavier's skewed definition of "internship" really is.
