Wolverine finally meets the villain who will tear him to shreds
Wolverine may be virtually indestructible with his adamantium bones and healing factor, but even he isn’t immune to a major beating.
Warning: Spoilers for Wolverine # 14 forward!
The latest issue of Wolverine Finally, puts the popular Canadian mutant of the X-Men face to face with the villain who Marvel says will tear him to shreds in the next issue. Sevyr Blackmore is a notorious Arakkii pirate who leaves death and destruction in his wake, and now Wolverine gets in his way as he embarks on an X-Force mission to find out what really happened to the Marauder.
During the events of Krakoa’s groundbreaking Hellfire Gala, the X-Force had their hands full to clean up Beast’s mess after their attempt to control Tera Verdean’s ambassadors went horribly wrong; and because of this, they managed to miss the Marauder being attacked and transported across the world. Emma Frost’s ship was carrying a load of Shi’ar Logical Diamonds and was piloted by her brother, Christian. Unfortunately, Christian was sent overboard and the ship never reached its intended destinations. Wolverine was therefore dispatched on behalf of X-Force to find out the truth about what happened and who fell with it.
In May, Marvel revealed a solicitation for Wolverine # 15 (coming in August) and the cover was a ghoulish look at Wolverine with half of his adamantium skeleton fully exposed. Now with Wolverine # 14, the show’s creative team (Benjamin Percy, Adam Kubert, and Frank Martin) have finally given a great introduction to the villain who will tear Agent X-Force to pieces, setting the stage for what’s to come. In this issue, when Wolverine finds the wreckage shipped to Madripoor, the Logical Diamonds are nowhere to be found. Those aren’t the only things missing though, and the search for what, or rather who, escaped the hull is what leads Wolverine to come face to face with the pirate crime lord Arakkii, Sevyr. Blackmore.
Sevyr Blackmore is not a normal villainous opponent. He’s also a mutant, but he’s a dark dimension mutant. He’s tall, he’s mean, and it looks like his insides are made of acid. Moreover, after millennia of “Loot and kill” his way through Arakko, he and his fellow Boneclutch pirates turned their attention to Earth. He is shaping up to be a formidable and gnarly opponent for Wolverine.
For now, they seem to be pretty cordial to each other, sharing drinks and laughs, being as pleasant as two fairly aggressive guys with different morals can be. On August 25, however, fans will be able to see them face off in what is expected to be an extremely violent ordeal, especially since Solem, the dangerous adamantium-skinned mutant Arakkii, is somehow involved in it all. . It’s only a matter of time before the events on the cover of Wolverine # 15 take place. What will be the catalyst, what Sevyr Blackmorewhat ‘s motivations are, and what role Solem plays in it has not yet been revealed; but one thing is certain it will be a battle Wolverine and Krakoa won’t soon forget.
