Wolverine #72

The penultimate chapter of Old Man Logan. Last issue ended with Clint Barton being betrayed and killed by S.H.E.I.L.D. The agents of the President Red Skull then gun down Logan.

Highlights (Spoilers)
  • The Red Skull is the President of the United States. He has an entire room dedicated to trophies he's taken off dead superheroes. His most cherished is the costume of Captain America which he constantly wears.
  • Logan survives his injuries as his healing factor kicks back in.
  • The Red Skull and Logan fight. Logan uses Captain America's shield to decapitate the villain.
  • Logan then takes the money stolen from Barton and escapes the White House using parts of the Iron Man armor.
  • Making back home with the money to pay the rent on his land, Logan finds that his landlords (The Hulk Gang) decided to cut the deadline early by two weeks and killed his family.
  • Logan finally pops his claws after 50 years.
