Cursed Part 1 (of 4)
Wolverine and Jubilee are back together, but things are different now. Very different. This is not the classic team-up from the nineties that I used to love, but rather a whole new take on the relationship. Jubilee has gone through Hell since the good old days, and Logan has been to Hell. If losing her powers wasn’t already bad enough, becoming a vampire takes the cake. Jubes already felt like an outsider, and this only makes thing worse. She is depressed and overcome with anger and paranoia. Being a typical teenager, she’s stubborn and thinks that everyone who is trying to help her is really out to get her and she feels that the only person she can trust is the Ol’ Canucklehead.
This issue really goes deeper into Logan’s role as a father figure to Jubilee. When times are tough, he makes a point to be there. She feels like and outcast and is probably not too far off the mark by thinking that the others don’t care about her that much, well at least not nearly as much as Logan does. I found Rockslide’s minor role to be a good addition to the story and the story itself was very good. It was a good start and I look forward to seeing how this goes. It’s not the fun-loving Jubilee that I remember, but the relationship really hasn’t changed. The art was superb and the story did a very good job of presenting the current situation, which is exactly what I was looking for.
