“THE IRON WILL TO WIN”
It was in 1845 that young James and Victor fled the Howlett estate in Alberta. By the night of April 16, 1863, they were Union soldiers under the command of Major General Ulysses S. Grant preparing to take the city of Vicksberg and break the Confederacy’s hold on the Mississippi River. Cut off from supply lines, can even the men who would one day be known as Wolverine and Sabretooth bring the Union Army the victory it needs to turn the tide of the Civil War? On the other side of the fight, the unkillable vampire-like Bloodscream continues his desperate search for the blood of another immortal – the blood he needs to break his own curse. Has he finally found the right battlefield?

“BURIED IN GRANT’S TOMB”
In 1610, a surgeon that accompanied Sir Francis Bacon in his attempt to colonize Newfoundland was critically injured by natives. With no other choice, he sought assistance from a sorcerer who ended up cursing him, inducing a transformation into an eldritch vampire-like creature. Bloodscream was born! Learning that the only way to break the spell was to brew an elixir from the blood of another immortal, he searched for more than 200 years until he encountered such a man on the battlefield of Vicksburg, and for over twenty years since then he has tirelessly hunted for this “Sergeant James Howlett.”
On July 23, 1885, Bloodscream secretly killed Ulysses S. Grant. The ex-President’s body would be buried in the largest mausoleum in North America. It was in that mausoleum that Bloodscream waited patiently… and soon enough, Howlett arrived to pay his respects to the man he helped win the Civil War. Now Bloodscream and Howlett square off on the most personal battlefield. Who will be buried in Grant’s tomb?

“SPECIAL FORCES TEAM X” Part 1.0 “OMEGA”
In 1965, in the midst of the Vietnam War, Victor Creed got himself and James Howlett dishonorably discharged after killing their commanding officer. Rather than languish in prison, they accepted an offer from Major William Stryker to join his CIA-sponsored Weapon X program and its black ops unit, Team X! The team’s ranks included Wade Wilson, John Wraith, and Kayla Silverfox and their first mission denied the Soviet Super Soldier Program the adamantium it needed to enhance Arkady Rossovich. Instead, the reds upgraded the mutant with carbonadium tentacles. Carbonadium, however, is an unstable alloy that is lethally poisonous. It forced Rossovich to steal the life of others just to survive! Desperate for a cure, Rossovich kidnapped Japanese scientist Kenji Oyama and demanded he craft a Carbonadium Synthesizer, which would regulate carbonadium in the immune system and render Rossovich all but invincible. Team X has orders not to let that happen. It’s August 3, 1967 in East Germany and Omega Red will fight Team X as if his life depends on it!

“SPECIAL FORCES TEAM X” Part 1.1 “ONCE UPON A TIME IN AFGHANISTAN…”
In 1980 the Soviet Union was waging a war in Afghanistan against the Islamic Mujahideen. The U.S.S.R. intended to quickly crush the rebels and reestablish a communist government. They sent in their super soldier… Omega Red! Still unstable due to Team X’s theft of the Carbonadium Synthesizer years earlier, Omega Red’s deployment was a risk - but a risk the Soviets were willing to take. At that time, the USA wanted to help [i]anyone[/i] opposing the evil empire. Operation Cyclone was the code name for the CIA’s program to arm and finance the jihadist insurgents with billions of dollars and weapons, and the most lethal weapons provided were from a project called Weapon X! It’s the team-up you absolutely never thought you’d see as Team X’s Deadpool, Sabretooth, and Wolverine fight alongside… Osama bin Laden!?!?
With orders to tag and bag any enhanced mutant deployed by the Russians, how would Team X contend with the optic blasts of Red Eye, the superhuman agility of the October Revolutionary, the teleporting of Stasi, and the sword-like blades that extend from the arms of Warsaw?

“MURAMASA: THE DEMON BLADE” Part One “THE WOUND THAT NEVER HEALS”
In 1868 imperial rule was restored to Japan under Emperor Meiji. Nine years later, disaffected samurai led the Satsuma Rebellion against the new government. Fearing rumors surrounding the unstoppable sword of the rebellion’s popular leader, Saigō Takamori, Meiji hired two supposedly unkillable veterans from the American Civil War to help put him down: Victor Creed and James Howlett! But when the samurai ambush their encampment, the two gaijin find themselves unprepared for what they face – a katana that causes wounds even they cannot heal - the Muramasa Blade! Victor and the surviving imperials are forced to retreat and James is captured. While his claws prompt curiosity amongst the samurai, who believe him to be the Kamaitachi, 鎌鼬, a type of weasel-like spirit, James is introduced to their culture during his captivity and learns that the rebels believe Meiji is corrupt. Soon, he starts to believe it himself - and he also catches the eye of Takamori’a daughter, Masa…
Meanwhile, Victor has no plans to abandon his brother or the job he was hired to do. Needing some specialized local talent for support, the man who would be Sabretooth seeks out a mystical clan of ninjas lead by none other than the sorcerer Ogun - who just so happens to have plans of his own for the Muramasa Blade!

“MURAMASA: THE DEMON BLADE” Part Two “COWBOYS VS. NINJAS”
Organized crime dominated the fledgling city of Denver in 1883, but when Governor Davis H. "Bloody Bridles” Waite took office, he made it his mission to root out corruption in Colorado – and he hired James Howlett and Victor Creed to help! Waite’s first priority was to remove Denver’s crooked mayor from power. Problem was, the mayor recruited a “special police force” to defend City Hall against the governor’s men! When James and Victor ride in with their small militia, the last thing they expect to face is a gang of outlaw gunfighters supported by the same mystical clan of ninjas they’d fought in Japan five years earlier! Donning the red demon mask, Denver’s mayor is possessed by the vile spirit of the sorcerer Ogun, who lusts after both revenge and the famed Muramasa Blade, which Howlett has carried even since his mentor Saigō Takamori used it to commit seppuku! It’s a gun and swordfight at the Denver corral, but nefarious ninjas, deadly desperados, and possessed politicians aren’t James and Victor’s only concerns! The unscrupulous defenders of City Hall have hired their own legend of the Old West – Gunhawk, who claims to be the best there is at what he does. And there’s a shocking secret to his success – he’s a mutant…. and James Howlett’s son!

“MURAMASA: THE DEMON BLADE” Part Three “A HILL TO DIE ON”
On July 1, 1898, the Spanish-American War was in full swing and Lieutenant-Colonel Theodore Roosevelt led an all-volunteer regiment, the 1st U.S. Volunteer Cavalry a.k.a. The Rough Riders, in a bloodly march to take San Juan Hill. Amongst the volunteers were none other than James Howlett and Victor Creed – but they'd have more to deal with than the Spanish forces at Guantánamo! Years prior, the Muramasa Blade was taken by James' wayward and lethally gunslinging son – the Gunhawk. Wounds caused by the Blade never heal, so Gunhawk had the enchanted metal melted down and forged into something more to his liking: six bullets.... six bullets that could kill the Wolverine! After years of scouring the Old West in a quest to eliminate his father and prove that he is the best there is at what they do, Gunhawk finally finds James in Cuba. He aims to rid the world of the runt that sired him once and for all, and he's willing to kill Teddy Roosevelt to do it!

“BOXING WITH CLAWS”
The year was 1898 and they were the Yihequan, which roughly translated means “The Righteous and Harmonious Fists” or "Boxers United in Righteousness." Members of this secret society claimed to be invulnrable to cannons, rifles, and knives. The most powerful of them actually were... and they wanted nothing more than to excise foreign imperialists from China! Diplomats, foreign civilians, and even Chinese Christians were trapped and besieged in a small section of Beijing. An Eight-Nation Alliance comprised of Austria-Hungary, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States opposed the boxers – and Japan suggested employing the same unkillable veterans they used years ago – James Howlett and Victor Creed! But if they want to rescue the hostages and defeat the Boxer's incredibley powerful leader, Manchu General Rangu, they'll have to team up with America's agent – the cowboy vigilante, Two-Gun Kid! But can this unlikely alliance stay together when they discover the true source of the Boxers' power?

“THE APLHA OF THE OMEGA”
Who was Arkady Rossovich? After the Iron Curtain descended on Europe, a variety of “so called” minorities from the Crimea, Caucasus, Bulgaria, Armenia and similar countries were rounded up and shipped to Siberia. The official justification for these deportations was alleged collaboration with their former Nazi oppressors and resistance to Soviet control. One of these minorities was an albino boy. In the harsh and unforgiving endless winter of Siberia, that boy would become a man and discover his true gift to the world – death. His “death spores” could weaken or kill anybody in his vicinity, drawing their strength into himself... as his family would discover. The Solviets made him a weapon. Then they made him a Super Soldier. This is his story. This is the bloody and tragic origin of Omega Red.

But before Benito can fill the jungles with undead, Victor "Captain Canada" Creed and his trusty sidekick James "Runt" Howlett look to bring him to justice!

Omega Climion 6 was one of the first planets to be colonized by America in the first half of the 21st century. But after distance and politics caused it to fall into isolated squalor, it became colloquially known as “Berserker World” - a backwards, desperate place ruled through fear by a brutal despot - Old Man Creed. At the height of his reign of terror, Creed could kill the people, but try as he might, he couldn't kill the stories... the stories that inspired revolution. The stories of Old Man Creed's greatest enemy, who never yielded in his vendetta against the tyrant. The stories of the man whose thirst for vengeance was so powerful that it forced Creed to flee the Earth. The oppressed people of Berserker World believe they can be like this man. In his name, their bones will be unbreakable. They will recover from any wound. Their blades will cut through anything. They will wade through the blood and make Creed pay. They will rise up and honor the memory... of the Legendary Wolverine!
