Overview

Author Marc Cerasini (O.J. Simpson: American Hero, American Tragedy), has seen the New York Times Best-seller list. Now, he turns his gaze to the debut of Marvel Press, the new prose imprint for the House of Ideas, by telling the story of Weapon X. This all-new adult-fiction prose novel relates the cruel story of Logan's transformation into Wolverine, as seen through the eyes of his tormentors.

As Logan manages to free himself from his captors, a brutal wave of violence affects all those involved. From the bloody aftermath of Logan's transformation, all involved in the Weapon X program endure their own personal change...via guilt, ambition, and humanity. Can anyone survive the carnage of this bioengineering team's twisted dream? Chances are slim, as the lines between man, beast, and monster are blurred for all the players in this closed experiment. This is a sci-fi prose novel.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Wolverine, the popular mutant comic book hero, makes a successful fiction debut in Marvel's first tie-in novel aimed at adults. Cerasini (O.J. Simpson: American Hero, American Tragedy) delivers three stories in one, each liberally supplied with flashbacks, dream sequences and expository lumps about high-tech hardware. The main story focuses on the imprisonment of Logan, as the future X-Man is called, at the Weapon X laboratory, where he's treated as an experimental animal. Attacks by wolves and a bear are just part of his transformation into Wolverine (aka Weapon X). Logan's principal tormentors-the Professor, Dr. Abraham Cornelius and technician Carol Hines-all have their own past traumas to explain what they're doing to him, but nothing excuses their behavior. Later, the Canadian Intelligence Service sends Logan on a covert mission to North Korea. In the third and final section, Logan/Wolverine runs amok in a virtual reality sequence, then returns to the Weapon X laboratory's reality to fight his way free. Novelizing a visual medium is bound to involve compromises, but this admirable effort works well enough as action-adventure fiction to lure readers who don't know an X-Man from an X-chromosome. (Dec.) Forecast: X-Men fans should ensure this "limited edition" is a sellout. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
