Wolverine & Captain America (& Ms. Marvel, but she is a girl and doesn't deserve billing)

Wolverine & Captain AmericaWolverine & Captain America by Tom Derenick
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This was a throw away plot with horrible art. My 9 and 12 year olds where even making fun of it. I mean look at that lady's poor baby. The artist also needs to think about consistancy. For example: One panel shows Wolverine taking fire from multiple different angles and the next panel shows the people shooting him were very close to each other. The panels also didn't tell the story very well, it jumps from action pose to action pose but a lot of the time you are left wondering how you got from one place to the next. I don't know who signed off on this or the leather jacket open at the top exposing wolverine's chest costume, but they need to work on quality control a bit more.

Oh, and so the writer doesn't feel left out. Why on Earth would you send a very important myster chip from the X-Mansion to the Avenger's Mansion on foot, by forge, unescorted? Nevermind how anyone other than the X-men even knew of its existance and no one even knew what the thing did so why would they want to steal it. You think something is important and others are actively seaking it do you A.) fly it over in the blackbird, B.) Gather up whatever strong mutants you have lying around and have them take it over, likely using vehicles, or C.) Give it to the mutant whose ability is to understand technology and have him walk from Westchester to Manhattan. I mean forge could have built a car out of a discarded walkman and a roller skate; why the heck is he walking?

Guess they were just trying to cash in on the Marvel craze.

I'm not a comic book reader, but I think consistency would be a must.
