This is an interesting story. It’s well done. Well crafted by Remender and Tan. But I don’t understand the point of it.

In a nutshell, somehow Magneto knows about X-Force and he wants to send the team after an old Nazi war criminal. He can’t do it himself. Wolverine accepts but he does it on his own and he brings one of his samurai swords with him.

It’s a strong story. The pages are extremely well designed. Tan does a remarkable job. The panel of Magneto begging Logan to do the job, that single panel is packed with emotion. Amazing.

The whole thing is just extremely well done. From the spartan appearance of Logan’s quarters with just a couple of pieces of decoration (Melita’s picture and a quote from Archilocus) to the look on Logan’s face when he kills the old Nazi; it’s all top notch. Tan hits this one out of the park.

And Remender’s story is just as strong. This is a good example of how the writing and art of a comic can produce a masterpiece.

The only problem, what is the point of this story?
