Collision Part 1-4 AKA Those Comics Where Daken and X-23 Fight
Daken and X-23 fight and team-up, one betrays the other, they fight, team-up, talk, and nothing much is resolved. Eh.
As a cross-over that was designed to get me reading both comics, this succeeded, but as something designed to tell an interesting story, it didn't really achieve what the possibilities held. I mean, we have Wolverine's son and his female clone, and basically they just fight and X-23 gets locked up over the four issues with some sub-plot about the Weapon X program happening too. Daniel Way and Marjorie Liu spend a little time pointing out the interesting differences in Daken and X-23--how one tries to be human and other embraces their sociopathic nature--but mostly we just have some random evil scientist named Malcom Colcord trying to restart Weapon X and our heroes not liking that. Oh, and Gambit is around too.
2.5 out of 5 stars.
