1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Sam Quixote TOP 500 REVIEWER on 25 Nov. 2012
Format: Paperback
Logan discovers he has a son called Daken who is hell bent on destruction and vows to stop him. Except Daken has inherited his father's famous healing factor and the only thing that can make a difference is the material carbonadium, a rare substance that can only be synthesized using one small machine - which Logan has stashed in Berlin. The race is on as Logan, Daken and the evil mutant Omega Red head for the prize.

I like this series and the character of Daken but this second volume is not the strongest in the series - it's basically all about the final few pages launching the story into the excellent third volume "Swift and Terrible". But Daniel Way's characterisation remains spot on while Steve Dillon's art is fantastic as always.

I think this book is a bit dull because of the various plot threads that don't really go anywhere. Jubilee as hostage went nowhere, the Black Widow showing up was also pointless as was her side story from when she was a kid who met Logan for the first time, and the SHIELD side story ended abruptly at the same time as the Omega Red story.

All this book really sets up for the rest of the series is that there is a material that can permanently kill Logan and that Daken, angry young man that he is, wants it so he can bond it to his exoskeleton and kill his dad. "Savior" is an overlong part of the series that is largely unnecessary - only Wolverine/Daken fans would really want to read this for completion's sake.

The story and art are both good, but this book has a lot of referenses to the X-Men Mutant Genesis storyline. I would greatly recommend reading that before this book, else this one may not make sense. But otherwise, a very good book.

at first i didn't want anything to do with it 3 Oct. 2011
By MiCROjOY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
everyone is entitled to their own opinion, so, this is in no way hostile to other reviewers. I used to read comics as a kid, especially wolverine, and now i'm in my 30's and back into them big time. i stumbled into the best comic store in richmond, va and was blown away by the art and the intellegent story lines of todays comics. Since then i have gotten a lot of the newer wolverine graphic novels. i was really not into anything about these origins books or the art, to be honest..for some reason i thought it looked like cheap and generic or something. Then i found that i really like the artwork 'dillon' does for the current jason aaron punisher run, which made me more interested in checking out daniel way's origins. i finally got origins 1 and now i'm hooked. Reviews do help when looking to find something worth while, but, in the end, everybody has their own taste and opinion so don't look over something to quick that you might like.

Good but not great. 4 July 2007
By J Gent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The Origins:series is based off of the idea that Wolverine has remembered all of his past, which is a great concept. I think the storyline moves a little slow to get to the point and the art is very lackluster and subpar. I feel like I am watching Saturday morning cartoons from the 90's that really really suck and went cheap on the budget. Also they probably could have narrowed down the length to get to the point instead of draggin on the end. If you decide to continue on with the series after this it is much of the same with more questions. I say borrow a friends copy to read but keeping it is just not worth the effort or cost. I think I read it in 15 minutes which is pretty pathetic for a trade.

Overall:Awesome cover art, poor interior art and ok dialog and narrative. It makes me wish that they would just start reprinting the Wolverine: Originals from 'Marvel Presents'. Apparently those days of great art inside and out and amazing story telling are gone for this series. Too bad.

Another look into Wolverine's rediscovered past 26 May 2014
By Ben Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I liked this better than the first volume of this series, though Dillon's artwork is still a weak spot for me. I think certain characters should demand a certain art style, and Dillon just doesn't seem to capture Wolverine.

The story here is good though. We see more from the memories that we first saw way back in X-Men (vol. 2) #4-6, which are collected in X-Men Omnibus Vol. 2, with a similar theme as that old story with Logan and Omega Red both after the carbonadium synthesizer. And we see the introduction at the end of a character that would become the source of great emotional trauma for Wolverine over the next several years. We also get a bit more on the history between Black Widow and Wolverine, which was first explored in Uncanny X-Men #268 (found in X-Men Omnibus Vol. 1).

This volume differs from the first in that we see a lot more diving into storylines which had been hinted at in the past, but can now be fleshed out more with Logan's restored memories. It was a good direction to take the character after the big change.
Good, not great. 12 Jan. 2014

I enjoyed it. I especially liked the last issue in the volume. Very readable. If you're a wolverine fan, give it a shot. The art work isn't my favorite, though. I don't like how they drew Logan's face. It makes him look like an old man.
