THE UNCANNY X-MEN #139-140: First Brown Wolverine, and First Logan!


Over a dozen issues ago, we heard Wolverine start to introduce himself to Mariko as “Lo-“–now we learn the rest of his name.  Claremont and Byrne also change the colors on his costume, without anyone in the comic itself noticing.  It’s part of the maturing of the character, but that was a long time to wait for the “Logan.”  These stories are marked by patience and long-form storytelling, something we don’t see nearly as much of anymore given how creators move around so much and there are so many #1 issues of everything.

Also, Kitty gets her Sprite codename from Storm, after rejecting Xavier’s suggestion of Ariel.

In addition…Great, iconic cover!
