4.0 étoiles sur 5 Before there was Wolverine...there was Weapon X 27 avril 2005
Format:Broché
"Weapon X" was originally presented as a 13-part story, including a prologue, that was published in 8-page installments in "Marvel Comics Presents" issues #72-84 in 1991-92. This was a Marvel title that presented four 8-page stories in each issue (except for the grand finale), some of which were multiple-part sagas and others that were one-shot deals. So while Barry Windsor-Smith was telling the story of "Weapon X" ("Before Wolverine" the first cover tells us), there is a multi-part story featuring Shanna of the Jungle and various stories involving everyone from Daredevil and Dr. Doom to Red Wolf and Captain America.
The chief attraction of "Weapon X" was that Barry Windsor-Smith was doing the artwork. In fact, Windsor-Smith was doing everything except some of the lettering, which Jim Novak handled. This meant that for the entire run of the story line BWS was doing the cover art in place of the usual rotation amongst the four stories for the cover art. The idea of the story was simply to finally go back and explain how it was that Logan, the mutant whose power was a regenerative ability, ended up with the skeleton laced with adamantum. Originally the idea was that Wolverine was simply born that way, but eventually there was this whole mysterious background that a secret military organization did this to him (keep in mind, we are talking a CANADIAN secret military organization, despite the revisions in the "X2" movie). The mad scientist behind the plot is Dr. Cornelius, who basically sees the opportunity to build the perfect offensive weapon.
The key thing to remember in reading "Weapon X" is that this is not a Wolverine story.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 L'une des plus belles histoires de Logan/Wolverine 31 janvier 2010
Par Présence TOP 50 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché
Le personnage de Wolverine apparaît pour la première fois dans le numéro 180 de "Incredible Hulk" en octobre 1974 (et dans le numéro d'après). En février 1975, il intègre les nouveaux X-Men. En 1982, il a droit à sa minisérie (Wolverine) écrite par Chris Claremont et dessinée par Frank Miller. Mais il faut attendre 1991 pour que Marvel commence à lever timidement le voile de ses origines avec "Weapon X".

Cette histoire raconte comment Logan a acquis l'adamantium qui renforce son squelette et qui constitue ses fameuses griffes. Après une nuit de biture, Logan est capturé par un commando bien armé. Il est alors détenu dans un laboratoire faisant partie d'un complexe secret souterrain. Les scientifiques présents lui font subir un traitement fort douloureux pour greffer l'adamantium dans son corps. Cette expérimentation s'intègre dans un programme baptisé Weapon X. Ce n'est que 10 ans plus tard que Grant Morrison révèlera que cette appellation se lit Weapon 10 (X étant le symbole romain désignant le nombre dix).

Toute cette histoire est bâtie comme un huis clos dans les salles de laboratoire entre 4 personnages principaux (Logan, le docteur Cornelius, le Professor et mademoiselle Hines) et plusieurs gardes anonymes.

Cette histoire a toujours été rééditée depuis sa parution en 1991, ce qui en dit long sur sa qualité. La première chose qui saute aux yeux, ce sont les illustrations.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A horrifying adult read 14 octobre 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
First of all, I want to disagree with the reviewer who stated this was not the Wolverine story. He is mixing this book up with a new series of the same title, which by the way, is also excellent. Second, this is a slow-paced story. However, the slow pace intensifies the utter horror of what was done to this character, and the inhuman indifference of the scientists who are experimenting on and torturing a living, feeling,being. This is a book which needs a second and third reading; after each pass, I found additional elements that I hadn't noticed the first time through. This isn't for kids or fans of slam-bam action by one dimensional heroes in colorful spandex. However, if you want a dark, intense read, this book is for you.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of Marvel's best 6 avril 2005
Par Andre 2015 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Every comic fan needs to have this one. The art is simply breathtaking. But who'd expect anything less from a master like Barry? The storyline is tough and violent. Windsor-Smith digs up Wolvie's past, how he came to be, with all the suffering and pain. After reading this you'll better understand his anger. Anger at the authorities who shaped him and mistrust towards anyone carrying a doctor badge. Buy it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent and haunting... 9 mars 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is the graphic novel that tells what happened to Logan when he received his adimantium. Mind games... physical changes... training... everything. The artwork is first rate and the writing is even better than the art work. It is one of the few trade paperbacks that are on the same level as DC's Kingdom Come and Dark Knight Returns

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the greates crafted stories ever published in the comic book medium. 3 février 2011
Par Logan (yes, that IS my real name) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Graphic, surreal, disturbing, highly entertaining. These words only begin to describe what an amazing work of art this story is. It's not just another comic story. It's a thinking man's comic book story. Before reading this you must first forget everything you know about reading comics. The narrative and art is just as disjointed and surreal as it is in depth and detailed. It leaves the reader with as many questions as it answers. There are no splash pages, no trendy one liners, there is nothing wasted and nothing can be glanced over. Any attempt to read this masterpiece by Berry Windsor Smith like a normal comic book will leave you confused. It incorporates elements of science fiction, body horror, cyber-punk, and reads like an acid trip at times. It's importance to the character of Wolverine is unmistakable. Writers have spent the past decade elaborating on this story, possibly the most important Wolverine story ever written. Writers like Larry Hamma, Grant Morrison, and others have used THIS story to further the character of Wolverine. Some of those stories were good, some not so good, but NONE have been on par with this visual masterpiece. This is MUST READ for any Wolverine fan.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "I see a beast that was once a man." 28 janvier 2012
Par T Fegan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Wolverine: Weapon X tells the story of how the unbreakable metal adamantium was grafted to Wolverine's skeleton while he was a part of the Weapon X programme and the events that ensued afterwards. This TPB collects issues #72 - 84 of Marvel Comics Presents.

A key theme throughout the comic is that of humanity and what defining qualities make someone human. Throughout the opening pages Wolverine is depicted as a very human character who articulates his feelings through speech and thought. After he is captured however he is depicted as a very beast-like figure, a "man with his subconscious stripped bare" as the Professor perfectly puts it. Caption boxes and speech bubbles are no longer populated by his thoughts and words, but instead that of the supporting characters, making the scientists appear more human than him. Now the only method Wolverine can articulate his feelings with is violence, his main feelings being that of intense rage and pain. Whether this form of expression makes Wolverine less of a human being than those subjecting him to tests is a key strength of this comic and forces you to consider when violence towards others can be justified, if at all.

The theme of fate being foretold as part of a prophecy is also conveyed within the artwork of the opening pages. Before Wolverine is captured and becomes a test subject he experiences nightmares of the Weapon X experiments which manifest themselves as images which gradually appear within the panels, slowly engulfing more of the page symbolising that his fate is getting closer. Similarly the repetition of the phrase; "storm's comin'" signify the coming of an intense torrent of pain to be inflicted on Wolverine, or perhaps his victims. Wolverine has nightmares of the Weapon X project not as something that has happened, but as something that will happen; hence the idea of a prophecy being foretold, an event that is destined to happen. Ironically the hotel that Wolverine stays at is called "Prophecy." These undertones of humanity and fate make Wolverine: Weapon X more than just an average comic book, but rather a piece of work that stimulates thought process well after you've finished reading.

The comic's artwork combined with the text on page complement each very well and succeeds in augmenting the atmosphere each scene is attempting to present. A prime example of how text and artwork couples to convey a particular atmosphere is shown by a number of panels that simply feature Wolverine floating in what appears to be a tank of fluid connected to an assortment of wires and tubes. No sense of space or boundaries is given in these panels which help to convey the sense of the unknown. Colour coded caption boxes show that various characters are talking but it is only until later, when Wolverine begins to regain consciousness, that these characters are revealed to the reader. The resultant effect is that the reader is transported into the shoes of Wolverine, not knowing where he is, who is speaking or what is happening to him. Furthermore text becomes short and snappy in scenes of intense panic which helps to portray a sense of increased pace. The font also becomes much larger when characters yell or cry out. These may seem like obvious details to include in a comic but it goes a long way in presenting a believable atmosphere, whether it is a sense of mystery, panic or calm.

The artwork features an incredible amount of detail; however it never becomes overwhelming or obscures what is happening on the page. Instead attention to detail serves the purpose of showing the horrific nature of the experiments, the vast assortment of wires and machinery connected to Wolverine's body and the grotesque nature in which Wolverine's claws puncture his flesh as they protrude from his wrists.

Text and artwork reveal subtle clues about characters intentions, their backstories and how they feel about the Weapon X project. The result of this is a supporting cast of characters that are very well crafted, each harbouring their own feelings about the Weapon X project. The story is as much about these characters experiences as it is about Wolverine's. Supporting characters include; the Professor, who spearheads the Weapon X project with a sadistic passion; Doctor Cornelius, a scientist concerned over the Professor's fervent ambition to control Wolverine's destiny; and Carol Hines, a technician who refuses to believe that Wolverine's humanity has been entirely stripped away. Each characters reactions to the project are all very different and very genuine, particularly Doctor Cornelius'.

In closing, Wolverine: Weapon X is a story that sees Wolverine subjected to an unimaginable amount of pain and anguish that horrifically scars and ultimately comes to define his character. However this is not simply a story about how the Weapon X project affected Wolverine but also how it affected the numerous supporting characters that were involved in the project. Wolverine: Weapon X is a well-crafted comic that never depicts detail for the sake of adding detail, but rather detail that serves an illustrative purpose. Text and artwork also work together in conjunction to convey a sense of atmosphere and add depth to the supporting characters. Wolverine: Weapon X is a story that deals heavily with the themes of humanity and destiny. What defining quality determines who is human? The ability of speech? Our intellect? Drive and ambition? A sense of compassion? Is it possible to lose one's humanity or simply lose sight of it? Is our destiny predetermined by other people or a higher power or is it entirely within our own hands?

The way in which Wolverine: Weapon X explores these questions, and the excellence of its use of artwork coupled with text makes it without a doubt the greatest Wolverine comic ever produced.
