"How the hell do you call yourself Captain America and not have people think it's a joke? But that's the thing wasn't a joke. Steve Rogers was Captain America."


Our War continues Wolverine's trip down recently returned memories lane. This volume features Logan's first time meeting Captain America, Bucky, and Nick Fury.
It's mostly flashbacks, again.

I have to say I'm disappointed with Wolverine Origins overall so far. The series started with Wolverine doing things because of what happen

Probably would have rated it a bit higher, but the art really took something away from the story. At one point, I looked at Logan...and he had @$#!ing buckteeth . Why would you do that to the guy? I mean, he's already short! Now he needs braces, too?

The story itself was pretty good, though.

Just close your eyes and imagine a different artist...

2nd read.

A love letter of reminiscence from Logan to Cap, after his murder marking the end of Civil War...tie ins to meeting first time, growing to like and respect him, also the uneasy relationship with Bucky, and meeting Fury for the first time. Nice to see things in a different light.

WWII tale, with Cap and Wolv and including Bucky showing what a bad ass he was.
The annual a tale of his past with Seraph and another teaser for Romulus.

I'd read the individual issues a while back, but my son got this from the library and I reread it this morning. I really enjoyed this despite the liberties that Way took with the characters.

As is often the case, the characters overlap and connect in ways that are kind of over the top and at times contradict. In this case Logan and Cap meet in Madripoor in 1941, but later on he says he's been fighting with the Canadian forces in Europe since 1939. Bucky is a hard-ass intelligence agent and much

Other than the art style, which is consistently bad in this series, this was an enjoyable story. As a tie-in to Captain America's death at the end of the Civil War event, we have a story of Wolverine reminiscing about how he and Captain America first met during World War II. I appreciated how some of the flashbacks had an effect of mimicking the damaged paper of an old comic book. The story itself features a Wolverine who is not a nice man and a Captain America that hasn't yet come into his conf ...more

I would have liked this more if a different artist had been involved. Steve Dillon's figures and compositions are really stiff, and all of his characters' faces look exactly the same. It's like Mr. Potato Head, where you stick different wigs, mustaches, and masks on the same model.
I always love Steve Dillon's art, and this is no exception.
This is a set of stories, mostly told in flashback, to a early adventure with Captain America, Bucky, Nick Fury, and the Black Widow. It's ok, but the storytelling and comic art is great.
Then there is a final story with art by Kaare Andrews, which is quite different in tone, though mostly successful on its own. I have mixed feelings about Andrews' art... It seems different every time, depending on the story. This one is just ok.

This is definitely the best story so far in the series. The setting and having Captain America plus Bucky certainly make it stand out. The question of Wolverine's intentions and who is manipulating him still loom large which helped keep this interesting too. I think the art in this volume is the best yet which maybe isn't saying a lot, but the improvement is appreciated. I'm not a huge Deadpool fan, but this series has been good so far so I'm curious to see how the next volume turns out.

When I saw a book with both Cap and Wolverine, I got really excited. Then I saw it was written by Daniel Way and I knew my excitement would be rewarded. While the story wasn't quite what I was expecting, it was still very entertaining. I especially enjoyed the moments when Wolverine reflects on how his experiences have changed his view of his past now that he remembers.

The series comes into its own here. It ties itself effectively into the greater marvel universe, and lays down some much needed backstory on Bucky that takes him away from the creepy and problematic child soldier narrative of the Timely Comics era. This would have been four or maybe five stars, if it weren't for the albatross around its neck, Dillon's art.

I didn't think this book was quite as good as the previous volumes. Here, the main plotline runs against the death of Steve Rogers, so we go chasing Cap, Bucky, Fury, and Wolverine around WWII for a while. The discussion between Nick Fury and Captain America about the shield is completely priceless, though, and will remain one of my favorite comic-book moments.

Also: this book is collected in a strange order. The Annual at the end clearly goes somewhere between issue 1 and 4. I think between chap

The art and story struggle to make this "revisionist" story of Logan and Cap's first meeting entertaining, but ultimately fall short. Stories like this are all too predictable despite the twists forced onto the characters. The real suprise here is Bucky. The cover and other splash pages hint at a hardened edge of this pansy little character who turned Captain America into such a sop for so many years. The authors truly deliver- I've never seen (even in these Watchmen-esque retoolings) someone in ...more

Just what was going on with Captain America and his buddy Bucky during World War II? What part did Wolverine play in this patriotic, Nazi-killing mission? And just what is going on between Captain America and Bucky, anyway?

Readers of this compilation will enjoy stellar art, storytelling and intrigue. I was left wanting much more...
Aug 07, 2011 Ernest rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
There should have been much to like about the volume-three interesting and longstanding Marvel 616 characters and a look into their history which could impact on how their chronologically later stories and relationships could be viewed. However, I did not like the art too much and the story did not really have a lasting impact on me.

Neat little story, even detached from the context of the rest of the Wolverine: Origins series. Two complaints, though. First, halfway through the book, Logan inexplicably switches from talking to the statue to talking to himself. Second, the art looks too "plastic" for a war story; it should have been grittier.

freakin' fantastic backstory to the 'history' of two of the most iconinc marvel characters to date. folks who've enjoyed the x-men movies....reading this series will give you a new appreciation for logan. more to him than what they ever managed to put on screen, i assure you.

Certainly better than the early issues. A nice integration of lots of history (though it's confusing at times). Even Dillon's art is better (though the sublime art of the annual shows what could have been).

I'm still a bit confused about Bucky. I don't know what side he was on or if he was in charge, or what was going on. But otherwise it was a good comic. Very sad. Very painful.

At first, I thought a narrative including Captain America, Bucky, and Wolverine would be lame, but this is surprisingly fresh and violent (a repeating theme for Wolverine).

I am a devoted die hard fan of the Wolverine. I was a bit dissapointed by the story..Captain America rocks but Even the graphics were not their usual standard.

I loved how we not only learned more about Logan, but got to see early Cap, Bucky, and Nick too. Love how Nick gets ideas for the future.
