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.

    WOW

    I bought this book having no idea what was in store for me. (I have been a Wolverine/X-Men fan a while.) I started reading it and I was blown AWAY. This book is very disturbing, dark, and sad but it explains everything about the experiment Logan was put through and his adamantium interior. Wow, I read 'Origin' right before and that explains Logan's childhood, but this! No wonder our hairy hero is so mean and bitter! All I can say is READ THIS!

    Weapon X will blow you away!

    I couldn't put this book down! Logan's history and transformation are both fascinating and dark. The cast of characters who take part in his 'evolution' are just as interesting. The side stories of the scientist add depth and a sense of humanity that make their actions all the more disturbing.This book isn't just for comic fans, but anyone interested in scifi, adventure, and the horror genre.

    Dark, ultraviolent, fierce

    I am fan of the X-Men from the movies and never collected comic books.Picked up this book because I really like Hugh Jackman as Wolverine from X-2. There is so much I didn't know about Wolverine's past. This book is creepy and really disturbing especially when they fuse Wolverine's skeleton with metal. Plus there are side stories about Wolverine outside of the experiment. But the surprising part of the book is how interesting the stories of the scientists are. Everyone is so messed up in this book. I can't explain it. You just have to read it!

    SNIKT SNIKT! Sharp story!

    I can't believe I read 300+ pages about Wolverine. The story is a cool sci fi story with a twists of horror and action adventure. The best part is that the story isn't weighed down by too much babbling. It's to the point and really gets in Wolverine's brain. I'd really reccommend this book to anyone who's looking for a different kind of sci fi book or who wants to know more about story behind Wolverine's claws and skeleton.
