Dark Wolverine #86

I'll be honest, I've never been Wolverine's biggest fan. Although I like Logan well-enough I still consider him the most overrated character in the entire Marvel Universe, and perhaps all of comics. I certainly wouldn't rank him in the same list with Spidey, Cap, or Shellhead. I've been less than glued to his war with Romulus, and although I liked the character of Daken as part of the Dark Avengers on his own he's far less charming. All that said, this issue does deliver its fair share of action, Logan faced with making a hard forced admission, and Daken proving once again the kind of sociopath that fears and respects no one. And then you have the unsatisfying conclusion. Sigh. I understand the appeal of a character who can do anything at the drop of a hat, but it seems a bit odd to me that of all the characters from Dark Reign it's Daken who is getting to keep his own book. It would be as if DC gave the Joker his own comic (wait, they did that). Hit-and-Miss.
