    Well, some of the stuff that is in this story could be considered to be quite original. Plenty of brutal fight scenes between Tiger Shark and Wolverine, especially tense moments like those when Logan got his claws stuck in the coral reef underwater. Artwork's very good in my opinion, story's going along fairly well. Good issue overall.

  • WOLVERINE #20:


    Carrying over from the last issue, Wolverine and Tiger Shark continues their battle underwater. Wolverine manages to break to the surface once to get oxygen, but Tiger Shark pulls him back under. They fight, and Logan is hurled to a Coral Reef, where his claws becomes stuck in them. No matter how hard he tried, he was stuck, and Tiger Shark left him to drown there while he hunts down La Bandera to finish their fight.

    Back at the Tierra Verde Medical Center, La Bandera continues her onslaught with her followers to free the political prisoners inside that she had heard was located in. Unfortunately for her though, where she thought the prisoners were was instead Geist. It was an ambush for her, and Tiger Shark kills her followers, causing her powers to fade. Tiger Shark gives her a good hit, but she uses her staff to fling Tiger Shark into Geist, allowing her to get away.

    Meanwhile, on the top floor of the hospital, Caridad, Salvation, and the scientists are talking about how Roughouse had responded to the last treatment of the cocaine, which caused sores to appear all over his body. Salvation touches his body to allow her miracle touch to heal him from this horrible side effect, though she was not diong it for Caridad, but for her son.

    Back in the basement, Tiger Shark continues his searching for La Bandera, only to be shocked in discovering Wolverine instead of La Bandera. Wolverine, a bit beserk now from being underwater too long, beats up Tiger Shark badly, while explaining that he got lucky with the coral reef, that it was a thin section and that after enough kicking, it gave away. Tiger Shark goes flying over the edge, into the water below. But, Logan was still deaf right now from being underwater too long, and his healing factor was still working on it.

    Meanwhile, La Bandera and Wolverine makes their way to the room where Roughouse was. They free Roughouse, and manages to escape on a helicopter with Sister Salvation (whom they needed to control Roughouse if he ever became violent) and the political prisoners. But they have another encounter in midair as Tiger Shark leaps from the sea and grabs the helicopter, pulling it down. But as fate has it, the wounds that Logan had caused on Tiger Shark attracted the attention of real sharks, who pulled Tiger Shark back into the water and was perhaps feeding on him. Logan then compliments on how everything seemed to be falling back into place, but unknowing to him, he had been shot with the darts tainted with the odd cocaine in his back by Geist.
