Synopsis
Wolverine steals a Blackbird and takes Kitty to Canada and Xavier fears Logan is returning to work for the Canadian government. Wolverine teams up with Alpha Flight to quell a hostage situation where a terrorist faction is holding the governor general captive. In conducting their operation, Wolverine learns that the bad guys are old Weapon X experiments who are dying from adamantium exposure. As the X-Men arrive on the scene, Shaman is trying to save the life of the terrorist leader, Citadel, who is encased in adamantium armor but he ends up dying, taking a piece of Wolverine's past with him.
