Dark Legacy Comics is part one of the Dark Wolverine storyline. It is written by Tom Spurgeon and drawn by Brian Bendis. The issue is collecting the first ten issues of the comic, which are written by Spurgeon and drawn by Bendis. The story focuses on Logan's past, dealing with Weapon X, Cable and the X-Men. It includes some background on Wolverine's past, including his time in the Special Forces.
Dark Legacy: Wolverine by Tom Spurgeon and Brian Bendis collects all ten issues of the popular Wolverine storyline. With this issue, the long time X-Men fans will see how Wolverine changed when he was made a Weapon. Some of the key events of the comic are revealed, and Wolverine is revealed to have changed completely when he became an Weapon. This is also the end of the original Wolverine series, and the start of the new one, written by Greg Pak.
The main plot of the comic is Wolverine turning into Weapon X. We see that in the beginning of the issue, Wolverine's past is revealed. He is the only X-Men left with his mother, who has been killed. He had got ta the clinic for some treatments, where Dr. Shelby Olivera had done the surgery to make him Weapon X. She tells that he would have killed her if she hadn't done it, because Wolverine's memory is too volatile.
In the next part of the story told in the Dark Legacy Comics, Wolverine is taken to the island of Alicante. We see that Alicante is under the control of Magneto, whom Wolverine had fought and defeated several years ago. Wolverine goes there to find out what happened to his friend, and finds out that Alicante was taken over by Magneto and all of the mutant people were slaughtered. He then begins his journey home, but is ambushed by X-Men that wants to stop him from returning to earth. He then fights his way through them, and gets saved by Jean Grey.
The third part of the story told in Dark Legacy Comics is the battle at the palace. Wolverine went up to the roof to get a good view of the entire battle, but Cyclops came with a group of X-Men. They attacked Alicante's palace, taking over the city until Wolverine came up with his adamantium claws. He then went into the palace to fight off the invaders, while Cable and Jean Grey stayed behind to provide assistance. They finally reached the X-Men inside the palace, and fought a huge army of them, including Cyclops, Wolverine, Jubilee, and Storm.
Dark Legacy Comics ended with the X-Men battling the Shi'i in the final issue. It was a fantastic issue, and really delivered on what the comic books were trying to do. The story told in Dark Legacy was amazing, and well told. I would highly recommend this book to any fan of comic books, or even those who don't read comic books. If you enjoy the X-Men, and want to see what happens after they're all gone, then Dark Legacy is definitely a must read.
