3.0 out of 5 stars GGRRRRRRRR 10 May 2005
Format:Paperback
Although Im a big fan of Wolvie, i found this book to be abit of a let down, it delieves none of what it promises.
The only reaon I gave it three stars was because it contains Sabertooth (one of my favourite, vicous, bloodthirsty characters)and Naive (she was just as brutal as Sabertooth.) and also has a sad, emotional, heart rending ending. I wont spoil the story for u but it links to X23's creation. The art work is stunning and detailed. Yet some of the story is too fast paced and completes the story too quickly when it would have been better to go into more depth on the characters so that why I only gave it 3 stars.
I recommend this book for big Wolvie fans but not for X-men or Marvel fans

5.0 out of 5 stars Rage time 16 Feb 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The concluding part of a trilogy of loosely interconnected Wolverine mini-series, this collection starts slowly, building up to a crescendo of a finish.
The characters are all well drawn and depicted, and have a real emotional depth somewhat lacking in other Marvel characters, like Hulk or Punisher.
This tale brings in Sabretooth as a kick-ass henchman, and a new Weapon X specimen nicknamed Native. Eventually, Wolvie and Sabretooth have to go head to head to get to her first, one to save her, the other to capture her.
There are some excellent narrative turns in this storyline, and the relationship between Native and Wolvie is beautiful. So much so, that it gives the tragic ending such a heart pull. When will something nice ever happen to Wolvie!??
But a detailed story hasn't stopped there being some excellent action scenes - particularly one section where Wolvie faces off against some helicopters, and another where he, literally, drives over Sabretooth.
I couldn't put it down, and stayed up well past my bed time to finish it. I was tired the next day I went to work, but I defy you not to do the same. Essential

2.0 out of 5 stars Average 27 Aug 2005
Format:Paperback
I found this collection of Wolverine comics pretty throw away to be honest. The artwork and the writing are both unremarkable, and the whole thing can be read in a two hour sitting. There's just not a great deal of substance...
The story begins with Sabretooth trying to track down a mysterious mutant from the Weapon X project (wow, what a novel idea), Native, who turns out to be a female version of Wolverine (wow, another novel idea. Anyone heard of X-23? Oh, wait, this female Wolvie has three claws on each hand. Phew!).
Suffice to say, Logan gets dragged into things, him and Sabretooth fight... blah blah.
The end was pretty unsatisfacory, tying everything up with no consequences or repurcusions for anyone to have to worry about. The book's really not that bad, but it's just so mediocore. Do we really need anyone else adding to Logan's already formidable collection of erased memories? I think not.
Go and get the book that follows this one instead, Mark Millar's "Enemy of the State", which is superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Wolverine vs. Sabretooth in years!! 25 Jun 2005
By Madelyn Pryor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Return of the Native is also a return to a more `traditional' Wolverine story than those presented in Brotherhood or Coyote Crossing. Once again tormented by his past in the Weapon X program and lack of memories, Logan has to battle to save another runaway from the program, the beautiful and mysterious Native.

The basic story line is solid, and Robertson's art is brilliant as always, but the true reason for the five star rating is the battle between Wolverine and Sabretooth. Never before have I seen such graphic violence between the two! It was brilliant, showcasing their true contempt for each other. And just when we as readers are able to almost accept Sabretooth as `just' another Weapon X program bad guy, he reminds the world what a truly horrible, rotten person he is at the end.

This is one of the better Wolverine graphics in years, and it gets my highest recommendations. Just a quick word of warning, the violence is VERY graphic and the mature topics make it unsuitable for younger readers, but for the rest of us, it's perfect!

3.0 out of 5 stars So-so story; sloppy artwork from Robertson 15 Aug 2008
By Snikt Chick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Coming off of reading the two previous Wolverine stories (Brotherhood and Coyote Crossing), this story-arc was disappointing to me. I loved Darrick Robertson's art in Brotherhood, but in this book there are some VERY sloppy panels. The story is also nothing new. I really didn't like the Native at all. But, like another reviewer mentioned, the fight between Wolvie and Sabertooth is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wolverine and Native are a perfect match... but..... 9 Dec 2009
By 4fabfelines - Published on Amazon.com

This book starts off with the creepy Victor after someone or something.
This being kills the others in his party and puts the hurt on him, he finds wolvie and tells him about this being, and wants Wolverine to find it.
Wolverine does and at...more This book starts off with the creepy Victor after someone or something.
This being kills the others in his party and puts the hurt on him, he finds wolvie and tells him about this being, and wants Wolverine to find it.
Wolverine does and at first they start to get into a kick ass fight , after a while (and clothing starts coming off,) Wolverine and Native recognize each other. The were old Lovers at one time and experimented on together. She had gotten away and become feral.
Of course they have a love time and she gets pregnant.. Wolvie wants to take her back to civilization but Native does not wan that she does not trust anyone except Wolvie.
Victor finds them and captures Native and takes her to a secret lab, where they harvest her eggs. Wolverine finds her and saves her, but she runs away to their old cabin in the mountains and Victor finds and kills her.
Wolverine of course goes beserk and ends up carrying her to Nightcrawler to get prayed for

2.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye to romance 26 Nov 2004
By Luis C. Chavarria - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Wolverine has found his perfect match (The Naitive), and as always Sabretooth wants to spoil his fun, by killing his girldfriend.

The story does not show anything new, we have seen better battles between Wolvy and Sabretooth, and like I said before she's not the first girlfriend on the run.

Naitive the caracter that gives porpuse to the story is far from original, as a matter of fact it's just another she-wolveriene wanna-be.

Wolverine has been drawn by some of the best artist in the field, this is far from the case, if you want a cool Wolverine (one with a costume), look for Marc Silvestri or Kubert.
