Wolverine Battles Strikeforce X in Wolverine: Weapon X #2!

An all new team of adamantium-clawed super soldiers are tasked with taking down the ferocious Wolverine in the explosive Wolverine: Weapon X #2!  Who better to deliver one of the most action packed Wolverine stories than the red hot creative team of Jason Aaron and Ron Garney?  Logan has tracked down Blackguard, the private military contractor that took hold of the Weapon X files, but he may regret this success when he encounters the deadly Strikeforce X! 

Critics and fans agree that Wolverine: Weapon X is a hit:

"Aaron can write a great Logan , and Garney can draw the hell out of a Wolverine story... [Aaron] and [Garney] sync right back into rhythm and remind us why they make such a great team." - Dan Phillips, IGN.com

"Aaron has a talent for strong, terse dialogue and vivid characterization...[Garney's] work in Wolverine Weapon X may be the best stuff he's ever done." - Timothy Callahan, ComicBookResources.com

"Plenty of kick-ass action...Aaron writes Logan the way he is supposed to be written.  Action junkies should be drooling over what Aaron should have in store for us with the next issue." - Rokk Krinn, Comicbookrevolution.net

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Wolverine: Weapon X, as the series continues to garner significant praise from all corners! Why was Strikeforce X created?
