"You know, I’ve always loved the Old Man Logan story. That’s a beauty. Maybe in 20 years time I’ll just pop up and do that one." - Hugh Jackman, 2014

As you may or may not have heard, the upcoming 'Logan' film is loosely inspired by the storyline 'Old Man Logan', a comic that Hugh Jackman had been hoping to adapt for years. Everything indicates that the similarities will likely be thematic for obvious reasons (99% of the major characters couldn't appear in a Fox film) but if you wanted to see the launching pad for the film here it is.

Warning: This is pretty gory.

It starts with #66...

Logan is now trying to raise a family at an old farm but they're low on money.

Logan says there's no such thing as superheroes and asks her to pass the bread rolls.

Bruce Banner's grandchildren arrive the next day. They're expecting rent.

Logan pops his claws and skewers them but it turns out to be just a daydream.

"Double next month or everyone dies."

Hawkeye tells him he has a business proposition for Logan a delivery job. Logan asks if it's illegal, and Hawkeye asks him if an old Avenger like him would ever break the law.


They ride off a cliff.

That night they're attacked by a gang of 'Ghost Riders' but Logan refuses to raise his hands.

In Hammer Falls, Nevada (called for Thor's hammer which is a tourist attraction). Hawkeye takes Logan to see Tonya, his third ex-wife and Peter Parker's youngest daughter.

#68, they go to rescue her from the new Kingpin.

#69, Logan comes to the rescue.

Some other guys start a fight with them and Logan almost pops his claws but stops himself.


Fifty years ago, the Xavier Mansion is attacked by a group of organized supervillains.

It turns out the whole thing was an illusion by Mysterio to goad him into murdering the X-Men.

Wolverine is broken and wanders through the woods, wanting to punish himself. He waits for a freight train. 

At this point in the story, Hawkeye tells him that a train couldn't kill him with his healing factor.

"No, but it hurt... An' sometimes, that's enough."


Hawkeye and Logan arrive in New Babylon.



Of course, Logan isn't quite dead...

Wolverine manages to escape with Iron Man's suit of armor and is able to fly back home with the money.

He returns to his house and finds one of his neighbors standing outside. The Hulk Gang has already arrived, two weeks earlier. They were bored.


The Giant-Sized Special (which was double-sized)...

Wolverine picks off the Hulk Crew one by one...

Wolverine impales Bruce on his claws...
