In a potential future in which his enemies have prevailed and most of his allies have perished, an old mutant warrior, unable to let go of his traumatic past, once again starts using his claws in search of revenge and justice, hunting down the responsible for destroying his new life and deciding to eliminate all the villains from the new world and bring peace to Earth. Over a base of the arid territory known as the Hulkland, going on a mission carrying a backpack, the reluctant hero goes wearing steel-toed boots, dressing a leather overcoat over his worn-out shirt and denim trousers, and covering his head with a large hat. Thus, Iron Studios present their statue “Old Man Logan (Wolverine 50th Anniversary) – Marvel Comics – Art Scale 1/10”, with the most popular X-Men superhero in his praised aged alternative version from the story arc of Wolverine from 2008 written by Mark Millar and illustrated by Steve McNiven.
In an alternative universe, the world was conquered by supervillains that divided their territories between The Abomination, later subdued by Hulk; Magneto, that lost his territory for a new Kingpin; Dr. Doom; and the Red Skull, that named himself President of the United States of Amerika. The superheroes were almost entirely eliminated, with a few survivors that remained hidden, among them, Logan, that lives with his wife and two sons in a wasteland in old California, controlled by an insane Hulk and his gang formed by his grandchildren. Needing money for paying his rent, Logan accepts to take a secret package for the capital of New Babylon together with a blind Clint Barton (Hawkeye). After many adventures and challenges, Logan reiterates that his Wolverine persona died in the past when a group of supervillains attacked X-Mansion, and he had to massacre the attackers to ensure the safety of the mutant children, however, the entire attack was an illusion created by Mysterio, and his enemies were actually his X-Men companions. That event destroyed Wolverine both emotionally and mentally, and he never used his claws again, until he came back from this mission and found his family killed by Hulk’s gang. Logan finally frees his Adamantium claws (a fictitious indestructible metal) and seeks revenge. Old Man Logan was the main inspiration for the 2017 movie Logan, starring Hugh Jackman as the main character from the title.
