The Best There Is

Letters Column: Cutting Edge

Logan regains consciousness, only to find he is bound and gagged. Mr. X and his cronies are seated before him around a dinner table. One of his assassins, A, gets a little out of control and so Mr. X dismisses them, and asks them to send in his attorney, Postlewaite. Mr. X’s strange request is that Logan signs a document, relinquishing the right to claim he is the best there is at what he does, as this is clearly no longer the case. Logan asks him to stick it, so Mr. X decides to provide an understanding of his background. He explains that he went from being the son of a wealthy couple, to witnessing the exhilarating death of a woman, to being a full-blown killer. Logan realizes he’s quite insane. Mr. X trained himself to kill people, and became quite proficient. Now, he simply wants the document signing. Wolverine calls him sick, and breaks free of his shackles. He attacks Mr. X and they tussle once again. During the fight, Logan has to go into a berserker rage, and he notices that it’s only then that he seems to gain the upper hand. Mr. X escapes to a trophy room, where he uses a machine gun and a flamethrower to try and stop Wolverine’s incessant attack. Logan finally gains the upper hand, but is unexpectedly knocked out by Mr. X’s bodyguard, Blok. He wakes to find himself in a dinghy, with a note from Mr. X. It congratulates him on being a worthy opponent, and asks him not to bother looking for him. Despite this, Logan and Nightcrawler later find Mr. X’s island, but there is no trace of the madman. Logan knows they’ll meet again.
