Wolverine faced “The End” in 2003 miniseries
Strictly speaking, it’s non-canonical, but if you want to see how the man who created Wolverine’s “Origin” envisioned his “End,” you could check out the six-issue miniseries “Wolverine: The End,” written by Paul Jenkins and drawn by Claudio Castellini, released in 2003.
Wolverine, more than 200 years old, lives alone in the Canadian wilderness with limited human contact. His main friend is a man named George, who’s been delivering groceries and the like to Logan for decades.
After the death of his former nemesis Sabretooth, Logan finds himself under attack from an enemy who appears to know all of his secrets. With ties back to “Origin,” this “End” does tie together some pieces, though it doesn’t necessarily hold with current continuity.
The comic isn’t bad, but I felt like the main thrust of the story was finished after 4 issues, with not much resolved in the final two. It’s an interesting look into a possible future for the Canadian mutant, but not essential. There’s obviously an appeal to an older, Eastwoodesque Logan — see “Old Man Logan” for one that did quite well — so some fans may enjoy this take.
