Synopsis:	Banapur Khan is the self-styled "prince of pirates," attacking
vessels near Indonesia, killing men and raping women.
	Logan is there to investigate a missing plane and finds Mariko's secretary
Kojima. He battles the pirates in a melee and kills them all, undaunted even by
machine-gun fire. Banapur takes a hostage and gets to a boat; Logan smells that a
stewardess with a gun was already on board and he lets her kill him.
	Kojima dies, murmuring that the Muramasa sword, due to arrive in Madripoor,
must be kept from the Cult of the Black Blade. Logan stakes out the airport and
finds Lindsay, whom he knows as Jessica Drew's partner. He trails her to her
hotel, where people looking for the blade attack her, and he rescues her. She
doesn't recognize him (the X-Men are all supposedly dead, UXM 227), and he
explains he's a friend of Kojima's. She tells him Jessica has the sword.

Synopsis:	Lindsay takes Logan to the dive bar where she expects Jessica to be
meeting her contact. To prove her mettle, she drinks iced tea, and the barmaid
realizes they are both from Long Island. Logan goes upstairs looking for trouble,
while Lindsay helps tend bar.
	Logan finds men slain by a katana, and the Silver Samurai. They battle, but
Logan concentrates on not being recognized as Wolverine and is losing, when
Jessica intervenes and attacks them both. She is possessed by the black blade and
begins a murderous rampage through the bar.
	Logan goes outside and, unobserved, uses his claws to rip down the walls,
saving the Samurai's life, but letting Jessica escape. He pursues her.
	Lindsay digs the Samurai out of the rubble, even though he once tried to kill
her (Spider-Woman 42-44). She goes with him, to ensure Jessica is not killed.
	Logan finds Jessica in a warehouse; they battle sword to claw, and sparks
fly, catching fire, so they fight onto the roof. Logan goes berserk and stops the
sword with his bare hand. It immediately possesses him, having found a like
spirit.

Synopsis:	Logan escapes through the burning warehouse with the sword and
Jessica, unconscious. Lindsay takes the Samurai to O'Donnell's bar (while police
chief is questioning him, but he causes no fuss), to interrogate three cultists
held there. She pretends to beat one to death (acting!), and another quickly
talks.
	Lindsay and the Samurai pause to shower and exercise, respectively. He
explains to her that forging a blade is a spiritual exercise, and mad Muramasa's
sword is very special.
	They repair to the cult temple. The Samurai makes O'Donnell stay as backup
and tells Lindsay to shoot Logan before he sacrifices Jessica. She is conflicted
but finally pulls the trigger. While the cult attacks the Samurai, she tries to
get Jessica out, but Logan springs back up (it was only a shot in the head, after
all). He duels with the Samurai, but just as he is about to kill him, he breaks
free of the blade's control and tosses it aside. It has been permanently cowed,
and the Samurai is able to walk off with it safely.

entertaining Karma; he goes to the Sovereign Hotel and accosts her in bed, tells
her the sad news, and warns her to be good.

Feature Characters:	Wolverine
Regular Characters:	Lindsay McCabe, Jessica Drew, Archie Corrigan

	Letters: Tom Orzechowski
	Colors: Glynis Oliver
	Editor: Bob Harras
	Editor-in-Chief: Tom DeFalco
Synopsis:	In the hotel penthouse, Karma, distraught, breaks a glass and cuts
herself. Bloodsport uses his power to sense there's something wrong; she's
terrified, especially when he tastes her blood and says they're now intertwined.
	Archie is nervous, flying into the Golden Triangle by night, to help Logan
get Coy's opium. He considers obeying Bloodsport and killing Logan but is too
much of a straight shooter, and then a fighter shoots straight through their
plane. Logan puts the transport into a climb, jumps out, slices off the fighter's
wings, and lands in a pond.
	Lindsay takes Tyger to the Lowtown office of Landau, Luckman and Lake (LLL);
Jessica has already scouted around. Chang welcomes them and says he can help.
	Hardcase has his Harriers search the jungle, fruitlessly, to find whoever
crashed the fighter. Logan emerges from the mud, attacks them, and leaves them
tied up in mid-air.
	Lindsay sees a 19th century tin type of Logan and Chang. Chang loans Jessica
an armored costume of metal fabric. Roughouse and Bloodsport break into LLL.
	Logan jumps onto a moving jeep and commandeers it, driving into Hardcase's
base. He snikts it to set it on fire, and, disguised, sneaks in, attacking the
men by ones and twos. He doesn't kill anyone, because he wants them to be
distracted by their own wounded. Hardcase gets the opium on a truck and crashes
past the jeep, but stops when Logan is in the road. Logan says Tyger doesn't want
drugs in Madripoor; they machine-gun him; Archie arrives and opens fire with the
machine guns on the transport. A billion dollars in drugs explode, which will
cripple Coy. Logan rises and beheads the man who shot him. "Gotta hand it to that
l'il fella... he has style!"
	LLL's office is in ruins.

Synopsis:	Karma fakes car trouble, shows some leg, and possesses the
lieutenant of the guard to get into the palace. She loses concentration and lets
him go, but Logan is there and knocks him out and introduces her to Archie. Karma
says her uncle caught his rival Tyger and brought her to the palace because he's
in cahoots with the prince. Karma works for her uncle, against her will (see New
Mutants 54), trying to locate her siblings.
	Gen. Coy explains that Bloodsport easily tracked Tyger, since he had tasted
her blood, killed Chang, and taken her, Jessica, and Lindsay captive. He
considers death, torture, slavery, or great reward for them. Seems Tyger is in
impenetrable armor and demands Linday's help; she refuses, and then Logan attacks
Bloodsport. Roughouse goes down next, but Bloodsport is up again and bleeds
Logan, till Karma takes control of him but then lets him slip. Coy goes for
Jessica, so Archie holds Karma hostage. Coy knows he's bluffing; Bloodsport
disarms him; Tyger attacks Bloodsport; Jessica helps Logan against Roughouse and
the monster in the pool. Tyger's inhuman armor is able to put Bloodsport down,
and Coy runs, but Baran arrives with armed guards.

scuffles with Hulk's driver, trying to pick her up. Hulk shows himself and
destroys their motorcycles, but Chaz must be on something, because he keeps it up
till Hulk threatens to squish his head.
	Baran recognizes Lindsay as an actress and invites her friends to stay:
luxurious imprisonment. Tyger is stuck in her armor, till Logan frees her (he
ordered it from Chang, iss. 5). He convinces her to make a deal with Baran and
Coy, since he will control the drugs and slaves she won't touch, and the two
rivals will balance each other. Baran shows Lindsay his gallery of statues of her
various film roles, and she is flattered.
	Coy is returned to his residence in the Sovereign Hotel, where Roughouse
propositions Karma and Logan punches him. Karma asks Logan to protect her uncle
from the hit man; Logan sees him arrive at the airport and recognizes his scent
(Hulk 180-181). Their scuffle with the locals over the skycap's tip ends with a
hand grenade (!), and Hulk tells Logan to drive him to the hotel before dawn.
Curious, Logan breaks into his room at that time and finds Banner self-sedated,
in Hulk's oversized clothing.

Synopsis:	Logan plays a prank on Hulk, filling his suitcases with purple pants
and leaving a note telling him to get out of town.
	Logan, wanting to be Rick in Casablanca, bought half of the Princess Bar in
Lowtown from O'Donnell, and Lindsay is hired on. Hulk has a white suit made and
busts in the front door looking for "Patch" (not recognizing him from
yesterday?). Patrons take bets on who will win the fight, but Logan agrees to
help him, instead, and rats out Coy. Hulk gets splashed with mud and, angry,
pounces on an oil tanker. So much for the suit, and he's back in purple pants.
Logan takes him to Mr. Max's Spa, a front for white slavery, and Hulk fights
thugs and frees grateful girls. But Banner has all the fun that day, and when
Hulk wakes at night in torn pajamas, the girls run scared.
	Logan leads the disgruntled Hulk to an abandoned villa and slices the balcony
out from under him. He plummets into a cocaine processing plant; Kobe has his
manbots attack; Hulk wins.
	Hulk is angry, but Logan says he took out two of the worst operations on the
island. Coy arrives, angry that Hulk hurt his business instead of killing Tyger.
Hulk, offended, says he's not a hit man, and Coy backs down. Logan tells Hulk to
leave before dawn, since Banner isn't invulnerable, and Hulk punches him for
making a fool of him but then leaves, via westbound flights so it will be night
all the way. But it's Logan's final prank: the plane flies east into the sunrise.

Synopsis:	Gunmen rent a cabin for the night, wary, since they're being
followed. Logan's claw bashes through the door; he kills Van Slyke, tells Malone
he'll come for him later, and runs into the woods. Five years ago they had been
mercenaries in Iraq and had tortured and raped civilians including a nun.
	Logan has already killed two of them and kills Rollins next, while he's
supposed to be on guard. The last three take a canoe down the rapids, but Logan
is in the water and grabs Needle. Bruno, panicked, tries to kill Malone, hoping
Logan will let him live, but Malone shoots him first. Logan confronts him, saying
he had been sent to Iraq as Weapon X by the Canadian government, and the nun
asked him to avenge her (!). Malone shoots himself in the head.
	This has all been a flashback: Logan is in Madripoor, thinking back on the
vicious days before he was an X-Man.

Synopsis:	Logan is in a dive in Madripoor, not wanting his friends to be at
risk.
	Flashback: Logan goes to a saloon with the body of his love Silver Fox,
killed by Creed, and so began an endless duel.
	Logan is half-heartedly involved in a bar fight and then takes to the roofs
of Lowtown. He breaks up a mugging and takes the victim (an American sailor) to a
brothel for medical help (the girlfriend is shocked!). Jessica takes Logan to her
rooms, above; she and Lindsay set up an office in Madripoor, acting as the
prince's snoops, who wants to balance Coy against Tyger, like his chancellor used
to before he took sides and got killed (iss. 4).
	Logan visits Tai, who says the man he asked about is thought dead, and who
wishes him a happy birthday. Logan is surprised he found out that much about him,
and he remembers fighting Creed in the snow on a previous birthday, before they
had adamantium, and losing.
	Logan nabs Jessica, who trailed him to the docks, concerned that he's been
causing so much trouble in Lowtown. Two Daryls open fire on them, exploding a
warehouse, and Jessica has to fish Logan out of the water. Creed took care of the
Daryls, leaving their bodies in the Princess Bar, with a note saying nobody kills
Logan but him.

Synopsis:	Note: this is part 1 of the Gehenna Stone Affair.
	Fanged thieves break into a museum in San Francisco, but they trip the alarm,
and the stone they wanted is a fake, anyway.
	Logan talks to Archie, who is bothered. His father disinherited him in favor
of his crazy brother Burt, but their aunt Ruthie now wants to have him declared
incompetent and take over the fortune. He asks Logan to return to San Francisco
to help, and Jessica tags along. Logan is bothered: he became Patch to distance
himself from the X-Men, and now he's getting entangled with new people.
	Archie flies them in past customs. They find Burt surprisingly sane; he has a
fragment of the Gehenna Stone in his desk drawer. Jessica collects the mail piled
up in her old office, and Tuttle from the museum hires her. When the vampires
tried to steal the diamond, he realized it had been replaced by a fake.
	Burt is late for his competency hearing and crashes through the window on
horseback, thinking he's Harrison Ford and saying the undead forces of Ba'al are
trying to take over the world. Sure enough, they follow him in through the
window.

pieces have started showing up, and a descendant of Ba'al is reassembling it.

it. They get to the airport, where vampires attack and get the fragment. Logan
fights the evil leader but gets fried, and the bad guys get away.

guards, ripping the stone out of Johann, who had swallowed it for safekeeping.
	Everybody winds up in the melee in the palace, and Ba'al is able to
reassemble the whole stone. Evil energies surge, and Ba'al duels Logan as the
Hand of God (iss. 13). Burt uses his Indiana Jones whip to knock the stone from
Ba'al's hand, but he gets it back and blasts Logan.

Ba'al; they both fall into the sea. The vampires are freed, and the soul of Ba'al

free Roughouse. Geist shows him the patient, whom he has drugged and shaved bald.
He works for Caridad, president of Tierra Verde and a drug lord. He hired Geist
to create a Central American super-soldier like Capt. America.
	Logan frees Roughouse, but he attacks him. Geist, using this as a test, hits
Logan with tranquilizer darts to slow him down, and then does the same to
Roughouse to prevent him killing Logan. Coy arrives by helicopter and buys a
sample of the catalyst Geist developed. Baran arrives and pays Geist for Logan,
whom he drops out of his plane.
	Caridad's ex-wife is a nun who can heal. He wants her in his new hospital,
not out helping Indians. She dislikes his corruption, but he explodes her mission
and takes her.
	Archie, O'Donnell, and Tyger fish Logan out of the sea and are amazed he's
not dead. He plans to invade Tierra Verde.

	Logan has Gateway send him to Puerto Verde, Caridad's capital. He finds La
Bandera battling Tiger Shark, who works for a drug lord that supplies Miami, her
home. Logan helps, slicing the villain's suit and causing vital water to drain
out, so he dives into the sea.
	La Bandera thanks Logan with a kiss. Her mutant power is to inspire others to
fight and to use transform their inspiration into physical force through her
staff. Logan says that's dangerous and sends her home.
	Bascomb offers him a beer. He's a CIA contact from his days in Canadian
intelligence and warns him the situation here is complicated.
	Caridad complains to Kingpin, who sent Tiger Shark to kill La Bandera.
Caridad has migraines only his ex-wife can heal, but they're not on speaking
terms. Geist has scientists tell him they isolated the miracle cocaine that can
make a super-soldier, but the land, El Jardin del Rey, is now barren. It is the

captive, undergoing multiple doses of magic cocaine, kept alive only by Sister
Salvation's power.
	La Bandera leads a revolution to the lab. Geist, ever the survivor, takes

	Caridad and Geist ignore La Bandera and the rebels and impatiently search the
jungle.
	Logan has a delusion or memory of hand-to-claw combat against Nazi soldiers
and destroying a tank. The nun appears and tells him to use his own healing
factor, and they kiss. Logan finds Geist shaving Hitler and suggesting the Final
Solution. Logan attacks, but Hitler turns to snow, and Geist turns into Spore and
starts to consume him.
	Spore is a living and ancient disease, created by the Deviants to fight the
Eternals. He succeeded till a Celestial returned and blasted him to slime, and he
seeped into the soil. Recently he came up in a crop of cocaine, but he killed all

regains consciousness and knows the nun had held him. She also put Geist on their

Synopsis:	Logan has a vision of Mariko slaying a wolf; and then it is Sister
Salvation beheading him.
	Geist has been electroshocking him, until Caridad is convinced he's told the
truth. He has him shackled in a cell with Roughouse, who was beaten with sticks,
like his father used to. Salvation's power has cleansed him of madness. Logan
explains the threat of Spore and urges him to break them free. They find the
guards dead with arrows through them: the camp is under attack.
	Caridad shows Salvation their son Palo, training as a soldier. He gets Palo
to volunteer as a test subject, and Geist readies the Spore-carrying cocaine.
Logan intervenes, deflecting the darts into Caridad, whom Salvation refuses to
heal. Geist tries to escape but finds La Bandera leading the rebel attack, now
allied with native Indians.
	Caridad shoots himself with the rest of the cocaine, and Spore erupts from
him. La Bandera's followers flee, and Logan has to rescue her. He tries a
flamethrower, but Spore just engulfs him.

	Editor: Bob Harras
	Editor-in-Chief: Tom DeFalco
Synopsis:	Note: this occurs before UXM 251 (Logan crucified by Pierce).
	Logan erupts from within Spore: his healing factor saved him from digestion.
La Bandera's followers take heart, so she has power to blast Spore as Logan
slashes. Doesn't work, and they retreat. Salvation says she can cure it, since it
is a disease.
	La Bandera and Logan attack again, felling the monster, so Salvation can get
close. Her touch sears it to ashes, but her hands are burnt, as well. Is her
power of faith, of mutants, or from the Celestials?
	La Bandera leads the revolution toward the capital; Salvation and Roughouse
plan to rebuild the medical mission (iss. 18); Logan hunts Geist and shreds his
cybernetics, which is his only life support, telling La Bandera to get him
medical attention and then try him for war crimes. He later learns Geist has been
extradited. Disgusted, he says farewell to La Bandera and runs into Bascomb (iss.
19), who says Geist was his mole all along. Disgusted again, he returns to
Madripoor.
	He finds Coy's sample of the Spore cocaine, so he kidnaps him and Baran and
chases them through the sewers to scare and humiliate them. Then he returns to
Australia.
	Geist is in Washington, where Magneto finds him, remembering him from the
Nazi death camp where his wife was killed. He wants to chat, and one would
suppose a cybernetic man would not fare well against him.
