    Another new character is introduced in this story: Chimera. This villian doesn't seem to have all the screws tight in her head, as she talks to her hand as if her hand had a conscious of its own. It would be nice, though, to learn more about what she has to do with the current story that's happening. The only tie that she seems to have to this story is how on her computer, she has an image of a radically-altered Wolverine in a beastly state. Wolverine also finally gets some information from the Expediter, who had been keeping a very low profile for so many issues. She doesn't reveal to him what will happen, though, but wanted to give Logan a fighting chance to go against someone (perhaps Genesis?) in the near future.

  • WOLVERINE #97:
    "...Bump in the Night"


    Logan finds himself in Scotland in search of Cyber, who he heard had escaped. With the aid of Jean Grey, they head on over to their next stop after being unable to find any trace of Cyber at the prison that once held him. He did catch a scent, though, that someone helped Cyber escape.

    In a nearby town, Logan rummages through an emptied apartment that he had once encounter Expediter in. He finds a door and Jean helps him to get it upright. With the initials "WC" on it, Jean thought that it was a restroom. Logan, though, explains to her how once in the past, he had seen Mr. Chang go through the door and 30 second later, come out with a two-day old stubble on his chin and clothes tattered. Logan opens this door and tells Jean that WC didn't stand for Water Closet, but instead, a Warp Chamber. The two goes through the doorway.

    Jean and Logan timbles out into an office where Logan senses someone in there. They encounter a boy named Emmet who tells them that Expediter had sent him to take Logan to take care of someone named Chimera. Once Logan went through the doorway to where Chimera was, Emmet and Jean finds themselves locked out, leaving Logan to fight Chimera alone. Inside, Logan sees Chimera and an image of himself regressed to a beastly state. From Chimera's hand, she projects a energy beast that takes down Logan. Before she has an opportunity to grasp Logan, Logan pops his claws right through her hand, sending her screaming in pain. She then phases out as Jean and Emmet manages to gain entrance to the compound. Zoe Culloden suddenly appears and gives Logan a package, telling him that this would explain everything, and she sends Jean and Logan back on a sidereal timeslip. As Logan and Jean phases out, Emmet asks her whether everything would be okay. She tells him that she couldn't tell him everything that Genesis had planned for him, but she would give him a fighting chance.
