7. Wolverine and the X-Men
Wolverine is dead on the big-screen, so why not bring him back in a way that won’t make his death feel cheap? Jason Aaron turned Wolverine into a principal after the death of Charles Xavier, forcing Logan to be the best at something quite different than what he’s used to.
Not only does the story show us a different side of Logan, (don’t worry, it still has some awesome Wolverine fight scenes though, bub) but it also introduces audiences to a great new assortment of young mutants. Some are aliens, and some are omega level mutants with bad attitudes. Quentin Quire is one of my favorite new Marvel characters in years, and seeing him constantly get on Logan’s nerves is a treat to see unfold. So all in all, Wolverine has a lot to deal with as he runs a school and defends it from those who still hate the mutants.
This is one of my favorite recent X-Men arcs because it symbolizes a return to the basic structure the X-Men were founded upon. I love seeing mutants pass down their knowledge from one generation to the next, an it’s a no-brainer for Marvel to focus on Wolverine if they want to get some big sales.
