Then Logan is there, crucified (see UXM 251), saying things aren't as they seem. Then mute Gateway is there, and then Phoenix appears and says she's assembling everyone for a reason. Jubilee finds herself and Logan in Australia in the catacombs, like before. He's half-dead; she drags him into a corner to hide from Jessica, Tyger, and Psylocke. Jubilee locks up her mind, but Logan drips blood, and Jubilee has to attack. She blinds the women and then gets Logan to the room she nursed him in. Rogue and Yukio attack them, but Jubilee finds herself falling through the wall. Then she's in Massachusetts, swimming through air and earth with Kitty. She wants her help against Viper, who poisoned and mind-controlled Logan's women friends, which is why they're all in green. Kitty too, but she escaped. Jubilee agrees to trust her and yells for Gateway to port them away from the approaching green meanies. In Australia, Jubilee makes Kitty wear her tacky clothes. Kitty knows where to start looking for Logan: Mt. Logan, in the Yukon, in an abandoned gold rush town. They enter the saloon where Logan first fought Creed (iss. 10) and see he's been there recently. The bar explodes: Rogue found them and bashed into it. Kitty phases, disrupting Rogue's spinal cord, but Tyger captures Jubilee and shoots Kitty with a fixative. Lockheed arrives, breathes fire, and carries Kitty and Jubilee into Gateway's warp. They land in Agarashima in Japan, where Logan is training. Yukio attacks, and Logan, trying not to hurt her, doesn't see Psylocke coming. Unconscious and then poisoned, he dreams of his life with Silver Fox, ended by Creed, and then of Mariko. He fights snake-women till Jubilee grabs him and takes him up a rope ladder. Logan realizes it's really Viper, and they're in the Princess Bar in Madripoor. Phoenix can't break Logan's will; Jubilee throws fireworks to break Kitty free just as the Black Widow comes to the rescue. She takes out Phoenix, Psylocke, and Viper, while Rogue struggles with Logan, kissing him long and hard, till Kitty phases through Rogue and pushes her into Psylocke's psi-knife. The Widow spars with Yukio and Jessica, while Logan goes after the fleeing Viper, and Kitty and Jubilee follow. Phoenix wakes and psi-blasts everyone who's left. Viper spars with Logan in the basement, telling him to remember the vow he took on Seraph's tomb, but he's berserk. Phoenix arrives, angry, and Kitty, desperate, phases through her. The shock frees Phoenix. Jubilee gets in front of Logan's claws, saying he owes her, and stops him from killing Viper. Logan reveals that Viper is his wife. Issue: Wolverine 126 Date: Jul-98 Story: Blood Wedding (22 pages) Feature Characters: Wolverine Regular Characters: Jubilee, Kitty Pryde and Lockheed, Jessica Drew, Yukio Guest Stars: Rogue, Phoenix (Jean Grey-Summers), Psylocke (Betsy Braddock), the Black Widow (Natasha Romanov); Seraph (in flashback) Villains: Tyger Tiger; Viper and Hydra, the Hand, Sabretooth (Victor Creed) Other Characters: Credits: Writer: Chris Claremont Pencils: Leinil Francis Yu Inks: Edgar Tadeo, Gerry Alanguilan Letters: Richard Starkings & Comicraft/EM Colors: Jason Wright Editor: Mark Powers Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras Synopsis: Jubilee is shocked that Logan married a villain, but Phoenix and Psylocke verify it. Viper goes to prepare the ceremony, and Logan's women friends leave, disgusted, except Kitty, who made Jubilee take Lockheed away. Logan says he has a debt of honor: Seraph, a midget fallen angel, built the Princess Bar. She fought Creed to protect Logan and was killed but made Logan promise to do whatever Viper wanted. Seraph taught Logan to be human and humane. Hydra and the Hand are about to shoot Logan, when Creed interrupts, wanting him for himself. Kitty walks Logan to the ceremony; he and Viper are pronounced and kiss; Creed arrives and kills the officiator. He attacks Viper, but Kitty phases her and gets her to safety. Logan and Creed claw each other, eventually fighting underwater in a pool. Kitty notes that Creed is acting strangely; Logan beats him, but Kitty realizes he's faking and now has adamantium in his claws and skeleton. He breaks Logan's claws, and Kitty has to phase him away. But phasing through Creed's adamantium throws her off; he hits her; she drops Logan off a cliff. Creed prepares to slash her.

Hydra and the Hand start to take over Madripoor, but a shadowy figure who looks like Capt. America defeats them single-handedly, although his shield is a garbage can lid. The last Hand and Hydra men explode rather than give him information. It was Logan, and he gets clear of the blast. Matsuo is working with Hydra, and they are concerned that the Avengers may be involved. Also, Fixit just checked into a hotel (iss. 7-8), and they know he is the Hulk. It's a ruse that Logan played on the computer. That night he attacks the Hand and Hydra, yelling "Hulk smash," and they run in fear, right into the Thing and the Human Torch, and then the X-Men. All Logan, with some help from movie special effects devices. In Hightown, crime lords shoot at an intruder in the elevator: Creed. Kitty with him; she grabs Bao Tien and takes him outside, daring to drop him. He tells her he captured Viper when she went to him for help, and gave her to the Hand. Tai meets Logan, saying the directorate is about to make Matsuo prince (Baran was killed in iss. 98). Tai wants Logan instead. Logan parasails onto an oil tanker and attacks Creed with the stumps of his claws. He passes right through and realizes Kitty is working with him.

He has 13 circles of 13 sorcerers, able to corrupt them. Illusion: Creed and Logan fish in a stream together, till Kitty attacks and kills them, as Logan taught her. She has adamantium claws. Hydra reports Kitty escaped; Matsuo says she's going to kill in the real world, now, which will bind her to the Hand. Hydra is dismissive of his mind-games. They have Viper, Tyger, and Jessica captive in tanks on the tanker, hidden from him, and are reprogramming them. Illusion: Logan goes to the mansion to join the X-Men, and they attack him, saying he doesn't meet their standards. He takes them all out, finally facing Phoenix, who dares him to kill her or be killed. Creed attacks the Hand sorcerer, saying nobody kills Logan but him. The illusion is shattered, and Creed wants to flee, but Logan says they have to stay and find the others. So Creed attacks him. Kitty finds Viper and phases her out of her tank, fighting Hydra till Viper poisons her. Logan says the Hand mixed their essences, so he has Kitty's innocence, she Creed's ferocity, and he Logan's honor. So if he kills Creed or Creed leaves his friends behind, they become pawns of the Hand. They find the women, who have defeated Hydra, Viper having stopped Kitty from killing. Kitty phases Creed, preventing Viper from killing him. Viper swears to kill Logan, Kitty, and Creed the next time she sees them. Matsuo is furious that his 169 Hand were defeated by 3 mutants.

Issue: Wolverine 129 Date: Oct-98 Story: Survival of the Fittest Part 1: Whatever It Takes... (23 pages) Feature Characters: Wolverine Regular Characters: Guest Stars: Phoenix, Psylocke, Rogue (in flashback) Villains: Viper, Sabretooth (in flashback), Wendigo Other Characters: Credits: Writer: Todd DeZago Pencils: Leinil Francis Yu Inks: Edgar Tadeo Letters: Richard Starkings & Comicraft's EM Colors: Jason Wright Editor: Mark Powers Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras Synopsis: Nature is predators and prey. A leopard kills a zebra. A street punk mugs a man. Whatever it takes to survive. Logan is in northern Canada, running through the woods to clear his head. He gets to the old Weapon X base (iss. 48, 82). Nearby, the Wendigo (iss. 34, 84) sniffs him. Logan gets through the laser defenses and picks the lock. Creed rattled him, and he's unsure of himself. He remembers being made savage and tested on, to become a living weapon. But then he broke free. The Wendigo attacks: it was created by a shaman's curse on any man who ate human flesh, first Paul Cartier against the Hulk (Hulk 180-181) and then Georges Baptiste against Logan and Alpha Flight (UXM 139-440). Both were rescued. Logan gets ripped up and wraps himself in the Canadian flag to keep his guts from spilling out. He gets into a Hum-V, but the Wendigo attacks and flips it. Logan, realizing he's the prey, extends the nubs of his claws and stabs the creature's eyes. It runs away, and Logan collapses. The Canadian government notes activity in the base. Issue: Wolverine 130 Date: early Nov-98 Story: Survival of the Fittest Part 2: ...To Survive (22 pages) Feature Characters: Wolverine Regular Characters: Guest Stars: Villains: Wendigo Other Characters: Tommy Jarman Credits: Writer: Todd DeZago Pencils: Leinil Francis Yu Inks: Edgar Tadeo Letters: Richard Starkings & Comicraft's EM Colors: Jason Wright Editor: Mark Powers Editor-in-Chief: Bob Harras Synopsis: Logan collapsed in the barn of the Jarman farm in North Battleford, Saskatchewan. The boy, Tommy, finds him and is scared but gets him cookies and milk. Logan realizes the Wendigo had two severed fingers. The Wendigo tries to recall its life as a human. He had been headmaster of a school in Wisconsin. Chopping wood, he fell into a cavern and cut his hand. The pain made him remember his enemy, Logan. Trapped under a log, he ate his own fingers to avoid starvation and became the Wendigo. Logan recuperates and tells Tommy stories about the X-Men. He says some people are born different, and that scares other people. In the end, we're all animals fighting to survive. Logan realizes the Wendigo will track him, so he leaves, but then returns when he realizes the Wendigo will track him to the farm. This has given the creature time to get to the barn and scare Tommy, who hides under the floorboards and has to strangle his dog Jake to keep it quiet. Logan attacks, throwing kerosene on it and burning the barn down. The Wendigo runs away in agony; Logan carries Tommy out. Another uplifting story of honor and heroism.

He falls and catches himself with his claws, but not quite, and lands hard. Viper is alerted and decides she doesn't want him dead. Logan claws his way back, and in five hours makes it to the top. Viper sent 12 Hydra agents to look for Shangri-La. Only 3 returned, infected with an Ebola-like virus. Viper wants Logan to go back, since his healing factor will protect him. She needs a "pure" sample of the virus so she can make an antidote before it infects all Madripoor and the world. Logan finds a Hydra agent who had been torn apart. Then a cave with the remains of an old expedition, and a surviving, cowering Hydra agent. He says they never found the virus but some sort of creature, and Viper killed the agents who returned to her. The creature attacks, spider-like, and bites Logan; Logan wills his healing factor to fight off the poison and then kills the spider. He realizes it's alien, probably living in the cave for decades. He throws a grenade and tells the Hydra agent to run for his life. Logan shows Viper a piece of the thing but then tosses it in an acid bath: he brought the virus back, like she asked, but won't let her use it. Note: page 5 has an unfortunate typo, "kike," instead of "killer," describing Creed. Marvel sent out a letter of apology.

The police get the coroner to confirm Linda was hit with a shovel and put an APB out for Bill. Logan backtracks and finds the hotel where Bill and Richie stayed, and Richie's message in crayon: "Albinee airport 9:00." He finds and grabs Bill, but Richie admits he's the one who hit Linda. She had finally got tired of getting hit and pulled a gun on Bill, and Richie hit her to protect him. Logan leaves them both to the police, knowing who the real killer is. Jane will be fine.
