After Wolverine regains his memories in the aftermath of the House of M event (long story), he decides to return to Japan for some brooding and reconnecting. The plot sounds simple enough, even to the point of retreading older stories like Kitty Pryde and Wolverine. However, the 2008 three issue arc is beautifully put together, thanks to writer Brian K. Vaughan (who also wrote the acclaimed Saga comic series). Add to that the beautiful artwork by Eduardo Risso, and it’s a sight to behold.

Logan follows Wolverine, who now remembers his life before Weapon X and is generally contemplative as a result. Who wouldn’t be, really? Anyway, he travels to Japan to confront a part of his past and also flash back to his time during World War II. You see, not only did he briefly team up with Captain America during that time, but Wolverine also had space in his schedule to stop over in Hiroshima.

His timing is just… well, he manages to survive an atomic bomb blast. You know, that atomic bomb blast. His healing factor is one hell of a mutation, it seems. It’s a standard bizarre comics moment, but one that somehow manages to fit in with the rest of the contemplative Logan miniseries.
