00:11
number one by benjamin percy Victor
00:15
Bogdanovich and Andy Kubert and while we
00:18
do that we're gonna address a couple of
00:20
things largely in regards to what
00:23
happens when the curcumin flowers that
00:26
have been the lifeblood now of you the
00:29
mutant economy what happens when someone
00:33
takes those very same drugs are being
00:35
used for good and then turns them into a
00:38
dangerous narcotic more importantly
00:41
we're finally gonna kind of see the ugly
00:44
side of the order of X a group of humans
00:47
who worship mutants what happens when
00:51
you see the seedy underbelly of a group
00:53
like that and also we're gonna find out
00:55
exactly why a certain powerful being in
01:00
the Marvel Universe wants Wolverines
01:03
blood we're gonna talk about all that
01:05
and more right now but first let's is
01:08
that intro for the wise grass on the
01:11
agree no one is fertilized
01:13
chief any songs they prefer to lies
01:15
that's any beautiful a trip then have
01:17
purple eyes you can't see me you Steve
01:19
be wonderin how bout preach smart ever
01:21
loses that won't be before we get
01:24
started if you want to see more awesome
01:26
comic book videos like this winged it
01:27
only takes two clicks to become one of
01:29
Earth's Mightiest subscribers click
01:31
click and I'm going to write now this
01:34
book is well over sixty pages worth of
01:36
content and it's there's a lot it's a
01:38
tale of two different Wolverine stories
01:40
and that's not a bad thing it's just
01:42
yeah man it's a lot in the first half of
01:44
this comic we're mostly dealing with
01:46
equal cowan drugs being perverted into
01:49
becoming something more of a narcotic
01:53
called pollen it is something that's
01:55
being distributed by the flower cartel
01:57
now originally when I saw this
01:58
originally the thing I started thinking
02:00
about immediately was oh this must be a
02:01
tie back to a horde culture which I want
02:04
to say they debuted an x-men number
02:05
three when Don of X kicked off but
02:07
that's actually not the case this seems
02:09
to be completely unrelated and this
02:11
flower cartel they're basically coming
02:13
into territories and muscling out any
02:16
competition shutting them down or
02:17
absorbing them and there seems to be one
02:19
common denominator amongst event and
02:21
that's a figure by the name of the pale
02:23
girl who seems to in some way shape form
02:25
or fashion at least be telepathic
02:27
because she does seem to be able to make
02:29
people do things that they don't want to
02:32
do not only is that going on right now
02:34
but we also have a new character by the
02:36
name of Jeff banister a guy who's kind
02:38
of a narco style cop he's going after
02:41
this this flower cartel and it just so
02:43
happens that he doesn't really seem to
02:44
be overly fond of mutants but he needs
02:47
Luger Cohen flowers because his child is
02:49
ill and she needs these drugs in order
02:52
to get better his daughter while dying
02:55
of leukemia and waiting on these new
02:57
drugs that are supposed to save her life
02:58
things kind of get gummed up in the
03:00
works when the drug start falling in a
03:02
short supply
03:03
people can't get their hands on them and
03:05
this is coming from a place where the
03:07
drugs are being not just manufactured
03:09
you know Carcosa they're being
03:10
manufactured on Mars in the Savage Land
03:13
reason whole shipments are winding up
03:15
missing maybe a quarter of a shipment
03:17
here a third of a shipment there a half
03:19
of a shipment here and a whole boat
03:21
there something is going on right now
03:23
and no one knows what it is even sage
03:25
can't really pinpoint it and what it's
03:28
kind of seeming like it's boiling down
03:29
to here is it Wolverine he is being sent
03:32
out to try and track this down and all
03:34
roads wind up pointing to Russia and
03:36
when they get to Russia they discover
03:37
that this order of X is operating in
03:40
some really shady ways while the order
03:43
of X has no like exact hierarchy they
03:45
have no you know structure of anything
03:48
to speak of they're all kind of just
03:49
this ragtag band of people who worship
03:51
mutants but we start to learn that
03:53
apparently there are some sects of order
03:56
of X who worship mutants so much that
03:58
they are willing to offer their own
04:00
bodies women are willing to give their
04:03
wombs over to house the next mutant
04:05
birth there are men out there willing to
04:07
give their seed in hopes that they will
04:10
birth a mutant child where we live in a
04:12
world where everybody wants every man
04:13
wants a son every mother wants a
04:15
daughter these particular humans they
04:17
just want to birth a mutant because it
04:20
makes them feel like they're that much
04:21
closer to godhood even worse is that
04:25
yeah we know these people go crazy here
04:27
they go gaga for memes we've seen this
04:29
over the course of the last you know
04:31
dozen or so Donna Beck's you know issues
04:33
for me across multiple titles but we
04:36
also learned that apparently there are
04:37
even other groups who think that
04:40
sacrificing and consuming the flesh of a
04:43
mutant will make them become a mutant
04:46
couple that with the fact that there's
04:47
this new drug on the street pollen that
04:49
makes people feel like they're twice as
04:50
smart as they actually are twice as
04:52
strong as they actually are and it's not
04:55
hard to believe that some of these
04:56
people from order of X are crazier than
04:59
cat shit if that weren't enough when
05:01
Wolverine takes his x-force squad which
05:03
also want to point out I actually think
05:04
it's really interesting that in x-force
05:06
which did remember see of course also
05:08
writes Domino is still missing half of
05:10
her skin but in this she seems perfectly
05:11
fine so I don't know what
05:13
I'm line is here anyways that's not
05:15
important what is important here is that
05:16
Wolverine and the rest of X Poor's pull
05:18
up on the order of X things go bad
05:20
because they try to sacrifice kid Omega
05:23
well before any of this can happen
05:24
before even kid Omega and his brashness
05:27
can kill every single human that just
05:29
literally tried to eat him come to find
05:31
out the drug Pollan already did the job
05:34
for them and what makes things even
05:36
trickier here is the fact at the
05:37
beginning of this book we see the
05:38
Wolverine has killed all of his
05:40
teammates he's killed Domino
05:42
he's killed kid Omega and of course he's
05:45
also killed Jean and he doesn't even
05:46
know why he has no clue what was going
05:48
on and all we know is that he's left
05:51
wandering in the cold wilderness of
05:53
Alaska pondering what could have
05:55
possibly happened and the only thing he
05:57
keeps seeing is the pale girl but before
06:00
we can even figure out what's going on
06:02
there this is when he runs afoul of Jeff
06:05
banister who's working undercover to try
06:07
and procure these quick Owen flowers so
06:09
that he can build a case because he
06:11
thinks this black market of cocoa and
06:13
flowers and this narcotic he thinks that
06:16
they're the root of it and who knows
06:17
Sebastian Shaw is very much involved
06:19
with a lot of what's going on the shady
06:21
side of you know krakoa so considering
06:23
what he's doing selling drugs to the
06:25
vendee this wouldn't be much of a
06:27
stretch not only that this book does
06:28
have a second story and I'm not gonna
06:30
spend a whole heap of a lot of time on
06:31
this one because it's really easy to sum
06:33
up its the fact that Omega Red has come
06:35
to the island and he wants amnesty but
06:39
Wolverine having history with Omega Red
06:41
he ain't here for it but magneto does
06:43
bring up a very interesting point that
06:44
yes at one point in time and maybe even
06:47
right now the same thing you're thinking
06:49
about Omega Red people still think about
06:51
magneto green now grander megared is a
06:55
much worse case because I mean he is for
06:57
all intents and purposes
06:58
yeah he's literally a walking death
07:00
machine well the thing is that omega red
07:02
comes to Gore Khoa covered in blood not
07:04
Argus victims on his own and the day
07:07
that he came from leads back to France
07:09
and there's something on the other side
07:10
of that gate that even he don't want no
07:14
now all roads point back to him of
07:16
course they do
07:17
Wolverine keeps digging he even keeps
07:19
coming back and asking Omega Red what's
07:22
the deal and Omega Red he's trying to
07:24
convince them that maybe just maybe he
07:26
may have changed even talks about the
07:27
fact that you know Omega Red
07:29
he has to consume life in order to
07:32
maintain himself the death pheromones
07:34
that are a major part of his powers if
07:37
he doesn't consume life he's toast he's
07:39
been feeding on animals and you know
07:42
maybe even occasionally the random dog
07:44
but he's been trying to find ways to get
07:46
away from killing humans and he's hoping
07:48
that krakoa can give him what he needs
07:50
so where he doesn't have to kill
07:52
innocent people or you know so he claims
07:55
well when Wolverine does a little bit
07:56
more digging into where Omega Red came
07:59
from when he went through that gate he
08:00
ends up discovering a whole ass coven of
08:03
vampires vampires who do manage to get
08:07
the drop on Wolverine but of course
08:09
because of his healing factor he can
08:10
only stay knocked out for so long before
08:13
he wakes up and begins running fades on
08:15
every vampire in his presence because
08:17
even if they bite him he's not gonna
08:19
turn his healing factor is just that
08:21
strong it would destroy the enzymes
08:23
before they even take hold in his body
08:24
but the thing is the vampires they're
08:26
coming after him hard body they want to
08:29
drink from him so bad they can literally
08:30
taste it already and leave it to what
08:32
Wolverine originally thought was a woman
08:34
trying to sell him flowers is actually a
08:36
whole last vampire hunter named Lewis
08:39
from the night guard the secret order of
08:42
vampire hunters and killers of other
08:45
supernatural things they take out a
08:47
whole coven of vampires here they take
08:49
out a coven of vampires their thing is
08:52
they're not getting at the actual leader
08:54
and the leader of the vampires that
08:56
really wants a piece of them is Dracula
08:59
because not that long ago an Avengers
09:02
you can't remember that the vampire
09:03
nation has risen up and there was like
09:06
this insurrection that was actually kind
09:08
of a fake coup that was basically
09:10
setting dracula up to become the next
09:12
big bad in the Marvel Universe right now
09:15
I don't want to put Eric Bischoff's
09:17
theme music in E in anybody's head
09:21
[Music]
09:24
and right now the one thing he wants is
09:27
Wolverines blood there is something in
09:30
his blood that's gonna help rejuvenate
09:31
him and honestly what makes sense
09:33
Wolverine has a healing factor the guy's
09:35
been shot stabbed burned blown up
09:38
vaporized and he hidden every single
09:41
ass's has come back and maybe some of
09:43
this was a ruse during the adventures
09:44
run but it seemed like Dracula's powers
09:46
had kind of waned some and what better
09:49
way to bring his powers back then by
09:51
drinking the blood of one of the most
09:53
prolific killers with a healing factor
09:55
in the Marvel Universe not only that but
09:58
his blood is eerily similar to a
10:01
vampire's the biggest differences being
10:03
that when Wolverines blood leaves his
10:05
body it begins to lose these potent
10:08
properties that it possesses where's the
10:11
vampires doesn't but on the flip side of
10:13
that his blood doesn't deteriorate when
10:16
it's exposed to UV light which a
10:19
vampire's will that and it is compatible
10:22
with any other blood type even more
10:25
reason why Dracula would want it worse
10:28
yet we learned that Omega Red is not
10:30
exactly out of the woods yet
10:32
he needs a carbonadium synthesizer to
10:34
keep him from having to kill other
10:37
people to maintain his lifeforce and it
10:39
just so happens that Dracula is
10:42
bankrolling this whole thing he is
10:45
giving Omega Red the synthesizer he
10:47
needs a beard one that is rigged to
10:50
explode should Omega red start him
10:53
feeling himself a little too much but at
10:55
the same time he wants to make a red to
10:57
stay on krakoa
10:59
and get all the information that he can
11:01
and feed it back to him he wants Omega
11:03
Red there as his own personal spy he
11:06
wants to make a red to pledge his
11:08
loyalty to crack OA but ultimately obey
11:11
Him above all else so right there in
11:15
this book a mean granny it took him
11:16
almost 60 some on pages
11:18
but they told two complete stories that
11:20
I'm here for originally this was the
11:22
book I was least interested in of any of
11:24
the new God help us fuse five six I'm on
11:27
different x titles they're introducing
11:29
and I gotta admit this one caught my
11:31
attention I'm like okay let's let's do
11:33
this I like the idea of going in some
11:36
different directions where it seems like
11:37
yes some of this is gonna lean a little
11:39
more heavily on what's going on with the
11:40
side of you x-force but some of this is
11:42
gonna lean on something that has nothing
11:44
to do with Wolverine in a lot of respect
11:46
some stuff though
11:46
bo started technically with the Avengers
11:48
I'm here for it I want to see more of
11:51
this and yeah in a lot of ways I
11:53
actually kind of prefer you the second
11:55
story this vampire story most of you
11:57
guys I have a soft spot in my heart for
11:58
vampires but still I'm actually more
11:59
interested in this story than the one
12:01
they told the very beginning because
12:02
really the only bad thing I can say
12:03
about this book but honestly I think
12:04
there's something to like for anybody
12:06
who's a wolf or anything even if you're
12:08
not a Wolverine fan which I'm not I'm
12:10
not the biggest Wolverine fan what this
12:12
book it did something for me I like it I
12:15
will blithely keep up with it you know
12:17
until it gets bad which means Benjamin
12:19
Percy it probably won't get bad but you
12:21
never know I like the themes gonna hear
12:23
I think the writing was solid I like the
12:24
artwork in both sides of this book I
12:26
don't like to have me kind of playing on
12:27
some of the themes from house of X that
12:29
people thought were kind of weird the
12:30
fact that Wolverine seems happy now and
12:32
you know kind of even going even further
12:34
into that I thought that was really
12:35
interesting and the whole thing doing
12:37
the weirdness between Wolverine and Jean
12:39
Grey I'm still not used to that I just
12:41
yeah whatever anyway point of the matter
12:43
is this book is solid you should
12:45
definitely be checking it out and who
12:46
knows maybe I'll do more videos about it
12:48
if it keeps being good but anyways let
12:50
me know what you thought about Wolverine
12:52
number one by Benjamin Percy Victor
