The Mission

Credits: Larry Hama (writer), Jesus Redondo (penciler), Sergio Melia (inker), Glynis Oliver (colors), Jim Novak (letters),

Summary: Wolverine jumps his motorcycle off the Brooklyn Bridge and lands on the Helicarrier’s flight deck. Lockheed emerges from Kitty’s duffel bag, as she phases through Ogun’s spirit and shuts the Helicarrier’s computer down before it crashes into a boat. The Helicarrier is soon back in the air, and Rigby is assigned the task of purging Ogun from the system. Instead, Ogun possesses Rigby.

Review: So, Wolverine and Lockheed show up and…do nothing. Wolverine does recap Ogun’s origin and give Kitty advice on her latest crush, Rigby, but really…nothing. And Lockheed just seems to be here to be jealous of Rigby. Considering the lack of plot in the second issue, perhaps the first issue should’ve had a slower setup, with the Ogun revelation saved for this issue. Something should happen in every issue of a miniseries, especially if it’s only three issues long. Kitty’s soon-to-be-forgotten crush getting possessed by Ogun on the final page isn’t enough to justify an entire issue.

Looks like Hama recycled Logan's stunt of jumping onto the Helicarrier with his bike...granted, previously crashed into the bridge, but close enough...
