This will contain a bunch of unmarked spoilers. You Have Been Warned!Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Logan is a Neo-Western superhero film in the X-Men film series that follows the mutant superhero James "Logan" Howlett ("Wolverine") after X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine, the latter of which shares a director in James Mangold. This film marks the final appearance of both Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier. The film also stars Dafne Keen as Laura, Richard E. Grant as Doctor Zander Rice, Boyd Holbrook as Donald Pierce, Stephen Merchant as Caliban, Eriq LaSalle, and Elise Neal. The original "Old Man Logan" story arc; Innocence Lost; and classic westerns such as The Cowboys, The Shootist, and Shane are cited as the story's primary influences.In the year 2029, in an Alternate Timeline to the main X-Men and Wolverine movies, the majority of mutantkind is extinct. With the age of Superheroes now long gone, an aged Logan tries to live quietly on the Mexican border as he cares for a mentally ill Charles Xavier, even as his own Healing Factor decays. But when a young girl with powers identical to Logan's named Laura comes looking for the aging mutant, Logan soon lands in the middle of one last battle, this time against mutant-hunting mercenaries and a Mega-Corp that wants Laura for their own sinister purposes.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })A black-and-white version of the film (Logan Noir) was given a one-night showing in select theatres on the May 16, 2017, one week before the film's home video release. This version of the film was packaged alongside the original version in the film's Blu-ray release. Logan is also notable for being the first-ever film adaptation of a superhero comic book to receive an Academy Award nomination in the Best Adapted Screenplay category.A short film teasing Deadpool 2, No Good Deed, played before Logan in US and Canadian theaters. It has no actual connection to this film, though.Previews: Trailer 1, International Trailer 1, Trailer 2, International Trailer 2.Character tropes go on to the Characters Sheet.

Age Lift
 Logan / int_121b3725
comment
Age Lift: This is slightly inverted with Laura, who was somewhere between 13 to 15 during Target X, which chronicles the aftermath of her escape from the facility that created her. She was 15 when she met Wolverine. In Logan, she is 11. Similarly, Rictor is portrayed as slightly younger than his comic book counterpart. Zander Rice was only in his early thirties at most in the comics; in Logan, he is pushing sixty.

Anyone Can Die: No one is safe from death in this film. Most of the X-Men and the mutant race as a whole have died as part of the backstory. Of the film's main and supporting cast, only Laura and the other X-23's lucky enough to escape into Canada make it through the film alive.

Bloodless Carnage: This trope is averted for the first time in X-Men movie history. Everyone who expected the franchise's standard level of (mostly harmless) violence got a massive surprise barely a minute into the opening when Logan demonstrates just how messy any fight against The Wolverine can get.

 Logan / int_14beeefd
comment
Darker and Edgier: This is the second film in the X-Men film series to be rated R after Deadpool. The screenplay page that was revealed by James Mangold started like this: "Now might be a good time to talk about the 'fights' described in the 100 next or so pages. Basically, if you're on the make for a hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying, CG fuckathon, this ain't your movie." Mangold also described it as Little Miss Sunshine meets Scarface (1983). In fact, it is far more intense than Deadpool itself.

All There in the Manual: The recently released script reveals a few details that weren't made explicit in the films: Caliban is stated to be in his 60s, which would fit his age based upon his appearance in Apocalypse. Laura's fascination with Nate Munson, although hinted at in the final film and confirmed by Word of God, is much more blatantly established in the script.

The Sociopath
 Logan / int_19851b86
comment
The Sociopath: Rice is a cold, ruthless, For Science! monster who had no qualms against the implied murder of who knows how many young Mexican girls and women used as part of his experiments, treated the children they carried as things with the intent of turning them into Living Weapons, and callously had them disposed of when they proved uncontrollable and useless for the purpose. And then he unleashes X-24 onto an innocent family to get Laura back, casually dismissing Caliban's protests by essentially claiming his hand was forced. Pierce does the majority of Rice's dirty work and any funny scenes he has are in such a darkly twisted manner that they bring nothing but discomfort to the audience.

Gone Horribly Right
 Logan / int_1994ba0b
comment
Gone Horribly Right: Unlike Weapon X and many subsequent projects working with mutants, Transigen has managed to create real living weapons. Unfortunately for them, the one abused X-23 child that did turn out to be a natural killer reviles them in addition to being a threat to anyone else. X-24 succeeds where the X-23 kids "failed" in that he has no empathy whatsoever and will do what he's told. The side effect of skipping the whole "human" part is that he can't do much else besides attack in a seething rage. Like think. Dr. Rice can't rein him in once he gets his bloodlust up against the corrupt ranchers even though it is counterproductive to the mission, and he only outfights Laura by virtue of being several times her mass.

Alternate Timeline
 Logan / int_19b6f396
comment
Alternate Timeline: While it's never explicitly stated in the film, Marvel have confirmed that the movie is set in a Darker and Edgier Alternate Universe to the main X-Men movies. In this timeline, the events of Days of Future Past still happened and a Sentinel-run future was averted, but some offscreen tragedy ended up killing a bunch of Mutants anyway. Presumably, Fox's intent was for this film to be a standalone to send off Hugh Jackman's version of the character before they recast Wolverine with a new actor to keep playing him, although due to Disney's acquisition of the company and Marvel's plans to reboot the franchise, this never happened.

Always Someone Better
 Logan / int_19d1c1ae
comment
Always Someone Better: Transigen finally succeeded at everything William Stryker aimed for in the previous movies: they successfully wiped out the mutant gene and created a perfect clone of Wolverine. Nate Munson: All the Rodeo trophies in his room? He never placed higher than second. Logan himself cannot keep up with Laura, and he is also obviously outmatched by X-24. This is justified, as he is well past his prime thanks to old age and Adamantium poisoning wearing him down.

Never Trust a Trailer
 Logan / int_19ebe383
comment
Never Trust a Trailer: The marketing all gives the impression that the film's setting is a Mad Max-esque wasteland, which is actually just because it's mostly set deep in the country. The rest of the world is still just fine, and Logan is even working as a limo driver. For a smaller example, Logan saying "Someone will come along," and Xavier saying "Someone HAS come along," in the trailer makes it sound like they are talking about taking care of Laura. In the movie proper, they are talking about a family whose car they were indirectly responsible for driving off the road whose horses are running around a freeway full of automatically driven trucks.

comment
Cosy Catastrophe: Sure, a bunch of mutants died, but the world itself looks like it's semi-functional if a bit decrepit after whatever incident killed them all. And it's still better than the Sentinel-run future. Turns out that Transigen used engineered corn syrup to eradicate the mutant gene in people, with no more new mutants born since the early 00's and the rest killed by Reavers or attrition.

Bloodier and Gorier: Manigold aimed for an R-rating so the film could be more visceral than previous X-Men films, and it shows. Just one example is Laura carrying a Reaver's severed head and throwing it at his colleagues. The film was actually given a C rating in Mexiconote Films with that rating in the country are considered suitable only for ages 18 and up purely because of the violence. Many theater chains were required to ask moviegoers for their IDs before buying tickets.

Chekhov's Gun: Mr. Munson shows Logan the corporate-owned cornfields that surround his property, and notes that they are all genetically modified crops and used mainly for corn syrup. Dr. Rice and Transigen used tainted corn just like it to spread their anti-mutant Sterility Plague. Gabriela's video shows several adult male body parts being grown in vats, and warns Logan that Transigen is making 'something new'. It's X-24, a full clone of Logan. Laura keeps a photo of her fellow test subjects and their caretakers with her. Later, Pierce gets his hands on it, and uses the GPS coordinates written on the back to find and attack their sanctuary in North Dakota. The Adamantium bullet that Logan carries, which ends up being what allows Laura to kill X-24. Logan helpfully explains prior that he was planning on shooting himself in the head with it since that could kill him. Laura's comic books. When Logan flips through them after finding the photo with the GPS coordinates on the back, he realizes that they match the location of Eden in the comics. Logan believes that it means Gabriela and Laura's story of Eden is just a lie. However he later learns after meeting Rictor and the other children that those coordinates were chosen as a rendezvous point, from which they would proceed into Canada.

Aborted Arc
 Logan / int_23698fa8
comment
Aborted Arc: The Stinger for X-Men: Apocalypse featured the Essex Corporation taking Wolverine's blood samples in a set-up for this movie, strongly suggesting that Mister Sinister would be the primary antagonist of the movie—or at least the Essex Corporation in his place, who would use Wolverine's blood samples to make Laura. Mister Sinister is nowhere to be found in this movie, however, and the people responsible for making Laura are Transigen instead (presumably through the same methods that the Essex Corporation were employing).note Although nothing rules out that Transigen was not a subsidiary or licensee to the Essex Corporation, as an offhand remark mentions that Transigen is an offshoot of an American corporation. Later statements made by producer Simon Kinberg would reveal that Sinister was intended to appear in a different X-Men movie instead, which would suggest that Essex Corporation is planned for that movie.

No-Holds-Barred Beatdown
 Logan / int_25524784
comment
No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Laura vs. X-24. In Laura's favor. X-24 may be almost twice her size, but Laura is much faster, more agile, and while not a living mass of seething rage, still manages to be even more vicious as she tears into him. She completely controls the fight until X-24 finally manages to shake her off and then knocks her flat with one hit, which isn't surprising, considering she's a child. Logan ends up on the receiving end of this, more often than not. He gets beat down by the carjackers in the beginning, beaten down by the Reavers and even ignored while hunting for Laura, and is utterly annihilated in both fights against X-24. Again justified with his healing factor on the decline and his old age.

That Thing Is Not My Child!: Logan spends much of the film distancing himself from Laura, even after he finds out she was made with his genetic material. A downplayed example as it's not so much because of Laura as it is Logan's jaded attitude when it comes to relationships. Upon reaching the other X-23 kids, Logan outright states that he'll be leaving her alone after they cross the border into Canada. He eventually has a change of heart, but he is mortally wounded not long after.

Cruel to Be Kind: At the start of the film, Logan and Caliban are keeping Professor Xavier locked up in an old water tower in the middle of the Mexican desert, drugging him with black market medication to keep him docile and under control. It turns out they're keeping him isolated from other people so he won't kill innocents with his seizure-induced mental attacks, which is what happened to seven of the X-Men years earlier, and so the government won't find him to kill him.

Child Soldier: Transigen created the X-23 children so they could raise them to be controllable, super-powered soldiers. X-24 is more or less a toddler in a hulking adult body as a result of being a "successful" clone grown to do nothing but follow orders to kill. He probably is not able to talk and has no control over his emotions beyond (somewhat) Rice giving him instructions.

Bilingual Bonus: When Laura blows up at Logan after revealing she can talk and rants at him in very fast and angry Spanish for several long moments, the dialogue is left untranslated. However Spanish speakers would realize that Laura is actually chewing his ass out for the way he'd been treating her to that point, and revealed that this is why she hadn't spoken with him before.

Famous Last Words: Xavier is well aware that he is knocking on death's door. By the time he, Logan, and Laura are finally able to take a moment of true rest while on the run from Transigen, Xavier takes a moment to deliver an absolutely heart-rending soliloquy to Logan in which he recognizes the unbelievable difficulties Logan has faced in his life, and apologizes for the pain he caused in their relationship. Cruelly subverted, when it's revealed that he wasn't speaking to Logan, but to X-24 — just before X-24 kills him.

Ax-Crazy: X-24 is a clone of Logan himself, but stripped bare of all his positive traits. He's a ruthless ball of unrestrained rage with no compunctions against slaughtering anything in his path. And if that's not enough, he's a Hero Killer, murdering a helpless Charles Xavier in cold blood, and ultimately fatally wounding Logan himself.

Ramming Always Works: Subverted. Logan tries to smash the limousine through the chain link fence of the compound where Charles lives, but Reality Ensues and the fencing holds together, eventually stopping the limo in its tracks, forcing him to pull back. Played straight when he smashes the limo through the front gate since that is only being held by a simple chain and padlock that easily snap under the force of a moving limo.

Person of Mass Destruction
 Logan / int_36c94bed
comment
As evil as Zander Rice and Pierce are, it's hard to deny their argument that Professor X and other mutants by extension are Persons of Mass Destruction. The fact that there's no way to ensure survival from Xavier's uncontrollable telepathic attacks means that there's no safer alternative than neutralizing him. Not Helping Your Case is that Xavier himself, and Logan, cited similar justifications for neutralizing and killing the Phoenix in The Last Stand. On the other hand, mutants capable of doing that kind of damage are so rare that it's hard to justify targeting all of them.

He is unable to defeat X-24; between the serum wearing off and his Healing Factor completely shutting down, it looks to be all over, until Laura shoots X-24 with Logan's adamantium bullet. The audience believes it to be over, but Logan is too injured to continue, and finally gets his wish of a warrior's death. Professor Xavier is also killed when X-24 stabs him in bed while he was trying to sleep.

A piece of Found Footage viral marketing shows Laura's claws being bonded with Adamantium. The surgery scene directly echoes the similar scene in Innocence Lost, while a shot of Laura cutting herself with her claws framed to resemble the cover of NYX #4. The same shot also gives a nod to scenes of her cutting herself and playing with her claws in her cell from her origin series.

She revealed in her video that it was a lie — there was no more money after the initial payment.

Bittersweet Ending: Hard emphasis on the bitter part. The X-Men are no more and natural-born mutantkind is already doomed to extinction. But Logan, Charles, and Caliban all found peace before and in death, Transigen has been destroyed with the deaths of its leaders Rice and Pierce as well as its greatest creation X-24, and Laura and the surviving X-23 mutants are now free to live their lives in peace. Even the final shot is heartbreakingly beautiful and sweet: Laura turns the cross on Logan's grave into an X, as if a sendoff to everything and everyone the X-Men were.

An earlier example when we first see Xavier. Logan walks in silently while Charles is rambling on about Taco Bell and other random things.

Job-Stealing Robot
 Logan / int_514491f
comment
Job-Stealing Robot: Automation is discussed in the scene between Logan and the Munsons, and it's generally seen and resented as a way for the corporations who own the machines to cut out the poor, who get left with nothing behind. Indeed Logan's description of automation was cited by a US Senator, noting that it highlights a very real problem affecting the post-industrial world. In a symbolic sense this is what has happened to the mutants as well. Transigen has established control over the Mutant Gene, and suppressed its organic growth but have mastered genetic experimentation so well, that they can make mutants of their own, entirely for their own purpose and interests as X-23 shows clearly. Indeed on coming across Caliban's body, Xander Rice insists that they take it and harvest its genes, for future cloning use.

What Measure Is a Mook?
 Logan / int_52b36340
comment
What Measure Is a Mook?: Discussed, after a fashion: Logan awakes from a nightmare while recuperating at Eden. Laura is there watching over him, and he admits the dream was about hurting people. After a short conversation, Laura admits that she's hurt people, as well, and Logan tells her she'll have to learn to live with it. When she justifies her actions by calling them "bad people," he gently reproaches her by telling her "all the same." Logan and Laura massacre quite a few Mexican police during their first battle together, but as they are Faceless Goons working with the Reavers we're not supposed to emphasize with them.

Bookends: Funerals/burials are shown at the opening, middle, and endpoints of the film. Logan's first appearance involved giving a ride to a young mutant running away from her home (Rogue). His swan song involves him doing the same for another young mutant (Laura). In a Call-Back to X-Men Origins: Wolverine: Logan's journey to becoming one of the X-Men started with William Stryker shooting the mutant in the head with an Adamantium bullet. What helps Logan end his journey is his clone, X-24, getting shot in the head with an Adamantium bullet.

Happy Ending Override
 Logan / int_53c5f30e
comment
Happy Ending Override: The film takes place after the "good future" shown in X-Men: Days of Future Past, with mutants having disappeared anyway during the intervening years. Downplayed, however: Transigen's machinations and some typical urban decay aside, unlike the Terminator-esque hellscape of the previous film, the late-2020s are mostly chugging along just fine for the rest of the population. However, given that Marvel's official explanation is that this movie takes place in an Alternate Timeline, this technically preserved the happy ending for the "Prime" X-Men movie universe, only leaving this depressing future as an unfulfilled possibility.

Broad Strokes
 Logan / int_547196be
comment
Broad Strokes: In an interesting back and forth, Jackman described the film in this manner, saying it was a slightly different universe and implying that it was not based directly on past continuity. Mangold responded by saying that the film is firmly in the reset timeline from the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past, five years afterwards. In the movie itself, specific events from the original timeline are brought up, such as the battle on the Statue of Liberty and Logan still having the Yashida family's samurai sword, so this trope is likely in effect regardless. This is played straight with Caliban, who has little to no resemblance to the character's previous portrayal in X-Men: Apocalypse.note Apparently, both directors used Caliban separately and did not consult each other. Caliban shows little sign of aging from Apocalypse, despite the two films being over forty years apart note His actor in this movie, Stephan Merchant, is only three years older than Tómas Lemarquis, who portrayed Caliban in Apocalypse. and there is no mention of Caliban's previous appearance and role in Apocalypse. The portrayal of his powers is also different in both films, as the character's mutant tracking in Apocalypse is shown to be similar to Xavier's telepathy, while in Logan his tracking is more animalistic and feral, similar to a bloodhound or a truffle pig.

Logo Joke: Logan Noir plays with the 20th Century Fox bumper at the beginning, forgoing the current pan-around CGI logo for one that more explicitly mimics the classic still logo in use from 1953-1981 for its CinemaScope pictures. In fact, it even uses the CinemaScope title card after the Fox logo leaves the screen. The Marvel logo features comic-book images of the X-Men in its pages, taken from X-Men: The Last Stand.

Country Matters: Although not in the final cut of the film, one take of the scene in which Laura speaks for the first time was a bit more profanity-laced, with Dafne Keen slipping the word in during her explosive rant. Jackman only discovered this when he apologized to her mother (who happened to be on set during the take) about screaming obscenities in her daughter's face while filming, and she told him not to worry about it because Keen had just called him a cunt in Spanish.

Comic Books Are Real: Played with. There are X-Men comic books being published; Wolverine says that only a fourth part of all those things really happened, and not the way it does in the comics. He tries to take Laura to a safe haven for mutants, he even has the exact coordinates, and then finds out that those coordinates are taken from Laura's comic book. Eventually, he accepts to take Laura there, only so that she can see that there's nothing there. And yet, there is a safe haven there; but it's actually the other X-23 kids, who won't stand a chance in there if the Alkali guys find them, so they have to keep moving.

Adaptation Distillation
 Logan / int_5a40d6a
comment
Adaptation Distillation: Logan quit being a hero in Old Man Logan because a hypnosis attack against him made him think the X-Men were all villains and he killed them all. Here, a senile Xavier has degenerative disease-induced seizures, which his telepathy shares with everyone around him. The film implies that a prior episode accidentally killed several of the X-Men. Logan's Adamantium skeleton becoming a poisonous presence that slows down his healing factor is an important plot point; it is also something that comics ran with for a time. The film also adapts elements of Death of Wolverine, including Logan's healing factor giving out, the regeneration serum, and Logan dying in the end. In keeping the movie's grounded nature, the mutant gene has been wiped out by Transigen's modified corn syrup. Contrast this with Scarlet Witch's reality-warping in House of M and Decimation, which de-powered damn near every mutant in the world. Much of Laura's original backstory was simplified in Logan to the bare minimum of details, such as her being both a lab experiment and Logan's genetic daughter, while Zander Rice was an amalgamation of Rice, Sarah Kinney, and Martin Sutter from the original story. Though it makes sense given that her backstory took two entire miniseries to tell (and Logan was primarily drawing from Innocence Lost), which leaves plenty of room for an adaptation of Target X.

Central Theme: This is the last time both Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart perform as Logan and Xavier, respectively; as such, the writers did everything they could to cement a theme of finality throughout the movie. The majority of the mutants have long since died to the point where speaking of their demise has become casual conversation, new up-and-coming mutants like Laura and X-24 prove how old and withered their previous generation has become, and both Logan and Xavier die by the end of the movie.

The Mountains of Illinois: North Dakota doesn't have the rocky, dry terrain we see at Eden. And while there are mountains and mountainous areas (Turtle Mountain is very close to the coordinates given in Laura's comics, being a bit further to the east), there's nothing that looks like what's presented in the film. Primary filming for the movie took place in New Mexico and New Orleans, Louisiana.

Pragmatic Adaptation: One of the influences cited is Old Man Logan, which was even cited as Logan's "adaptation" for its entry in the Best Adapted Screenplay category at the Academy Awards. However, as the film rights for many of the characters are tied to Marvel Studios, it means that a number of characters including the Red Skull, Hulk and Hawkeye are going to be Adapted Out and the movie will be made to fit within the existing X-Men film continuity. Hugh Jackman himself notes that the film draws much more influence from Kyle and Yost's Innocence Lost in the Making Of documentary accompanying the Blu-Ray release.

Freeze-Frame Bonus: The corpse of the gas station attendant that Laura encountered is seen among Caliban and other dead "assets" at the Transigen base, implying that Pierce murdered him and anyone else who happened to be at the gas station when he and the Reavers arrived that day. The bodies of the Munsons are also being stored there. A brief glimpse of their Transigen files reveals that Bobby's genetic material came from Chris Bradley, and Rictor's came from Dominic Petrakis (Avalanche, a mutant with very similar powers). Laura's Transigen files reveal a couple of interesting items: As a Mythology Gag, her Transigen ID is X23-23. Her blood type is O negative, making her a universal donor. This is, presumably, a result of her Healing Factor.

Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames
 Logan / int_643879c7
comment
Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames: The film ties this trope in knots, playing it straight, subverting, averting, and inverting it: It's played straight with the film's title, which simply uses Logan's name rather than referencing "Wolverine." Additionally, Logan is referred to by that name for most of the film. In fact, this is also the first film since Origins where Logan's actual name, James Howlett, is used.note It appears on the dashboard of his limo and on Laura's medical records, and Pierce calls him James in the climax. Averted: He is called Wolverine a couple of times by Pierce, Gabriela, and the Reavers, while Rice at one point calls him Weapon X. Subverted: Laura is never called X-23 on film, but Rice does refer to all the children collectively as "X-23s." Additionally, Freeze-Frame Bonus in Gabriela's whistleblower video and in the Transigen medical records Logan recovers from her reveals that rather than being an individual designation, X-23 is part of a serial number. As a Mythology Gag Laura's own serial number is X23-23. Inverted: Rictor is only called by his codename, and his real name, Julio Richter, is never mentioned. Rictor is even the name used in Transigen's files.

Lack of Empathy: Zander Rice shows no remorse for the cruelty he brings upon the X-23 children or any other innocent people who perish from his hands.

Pierce's callous murder of Gabriela and the mutant children who "failed" him just shows how unempathetic he is.

Train Escape: Logan, Charles and Laura escape from the Reavers in Mexico by crossing the railway line just before an enormously long freight train passes. Played with in that they wouldn't have made it, however Logan pulls it off by cutting to the outside of a Reaver truck pulling up alongside them, and nudging the truck into the train's path as he turns towards the tracks. The truck takes the full force of the impact, which then catches the back end of the limo and swings it safely around to the other side.

Dying Moment of Awesome: Caliban, held captive by the Reavers, steals a couple of grenades and set them off. While he fails to kill Pierce or Rice, he distracts them long enough for Logan and Laura to get away. Will Munson, mortally wounded by X-24, manages to pin him to the tractor and gives him a couple of point-blank blasts with his shotgun for good measure. He then turns his gun on Logan intending to put him down for bringing that hell to his family, and Logan is prepared to take it, but Munson runs out of shells and finally succumbs to his wounds. Logan himself, first pumping himself full of the serum that kicks his Healing Factor into overdrive, and even after it wears off and his body rapidly begins to break down, he keeps on fighting to protect Laura and the other X-23 kids, even though X-24 has him completely outmatched.

Mook Horror Show: Laura delivers one to the Reavers in the battle at Logan's home. As they pursue her through the various outbuildings, Laura ambushes and picks them off one-by-one, using her small size and agility to decimate them. The mercenaries who hunt down Charles at the casino get a truly terrifying version of this: paralyzed by a powerful mutant, they have to watch, only able to move their eyes, as another mutant slowly hunts down and kills every one of them. Implied when X-24 hacks apart the ranchers at the Munson home. Most of their deaths are discreet but undeniably brutal. Played straight in the end, after Logan takes the mutant growth hormone, complete with terrifying roar heard through a forest followed by a cut to a bunch of guys screaming in fear and running away from him, before getting cut down in quick succession

Jerkass Has a Point
 Logan / int_6b05b601
comment
Jerkass Has a Point: As evil as Zander Rice and Pierce are, it's hard to deny their argument that Professor X and other mutants by extension are Persons of Mass Destruction. The fact that there's no way to ensure survival from Xavier's uncontrollable telepathic attacks means that there's no safer alternative than neutralizing him. Not Helping Your Case is that Xavier himself, and Logan, cited similar justifications for neutralizing and killing the Phoenix in The Last Stand. On the other hand, mutants capable of doing that kind of damage are so rare that it's hard to justify targeting all of them. While Pierce and Rice are after Laura largely because she is an escaped illegal experiment that was supposed to have been scrubbed from the face of the earth, she truly does pose a clear and present danger to everyone in her path either way, as she is murderously violent, wildly unpredictable, and virtually feral.

This is the case for Pierce and his Reavers. In the comics, they were mutant-hating cyborgs and one of the deadliest threats to the X-Men; in Logan, they're simply normal human Private Military Contractors with a few cybernetic limbs instead of full body conversions.

Driven to Suicide: Gabriela's recording of Transigen's atrocities includes footage of one of the children they're experimenting on jumping from a roof to kill himself rather than put up with the abuse he's suffering. Logan, meanwhile, carries a special adamantium bullet everywhere he goes, planning on using it to end his own life once his task of looking after Charles is done.

Adaptation Personality Change

Adaptation Personality Change: The film's version of Zander Rice is nicer than his comics counterpart. They both see Laura as a weapon, but comics Rice also delighted in torturing her and went out of his way to make her life pure hell. Accidentally happens to Caliban as well, as he is very different here from his appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse, which had come out less than a year prior. note As it turns out, the writers for each movie were unaware that the other would be using the character, and when they found out, both refused to change their version to match the other's.

Idiot Ball

comment
Idiot Ball: Logan tasks Caliban with dumping the alive-but-unconscious Pierce at an isolated location, alone. Besides not being a fighter, Caliban is a mutant GPS. This allows Pierce to ambush and torture him to track down Logan and Laura, and everything goes to hell after that. Had they left behind Pierce as a group, they would have bought a lot more time in escaping, avoided the deaths of almost everyone, and robbed the Reavers of Caliban's tracking skill. Even Caliban himself can be heard mocking the idea after taking Pierce away. Pierce and Rice take quite a while to modify their tactics once it becomes apparent that Laura is not only fighting back but regards their men as kill-on-sight. Charles also grabs it by accepting the Munsons' invitation, despite knowing that an army of ruthless, murderous psychos is on their way and any unnecessary stop could endanger them. It not only gets him killed but also the innocent family, kid included.

Shooting Superman: Called out in the smelting plant fight. The Reavers unload on Laura after she shows her claws for the first time, and kills two of them. Pierce angrily stops them, and yells at them that she heals before sending them in to subdue her the hard way, and when Pierce does shoot her, he uses a harpoon gun that can actually restrain her. Of course, it doesn't stop the Reavers from wasting tons of ammunition against both Logan and Laura later in the movie.

 Logan / int_7eb73553
comment
Bullying a Dragon: When Pierce first brings out the Reavers in Logan's presence, he has most of them confront Logan and sends a few inside Logan's hideout to find Laura. Pierce is later shown to have been an enforcer at the X-23 program, which means he is likely familiar with Laura's general powers. For her part, Laura sees the men coming but makes no effort to run away. She subsequently throws one of their severed heads at Pierce's feet as she stalks towards them with murder in her eyes. The film does not make clear if Laura has killed before, but Pierce is either underestimating or downright ignorant of the savage animal side of Logan's genes, and most of the Reavers are not equipped or trained to fight her.

Capitalism Is Bad: The overall subtext of the film. The villains are a Mega-Corp named Transigen that is more or less a N.G.O. Superpower with its own private army, full authority to run a patch of land in the Mexican border as a private fiefdom, using Mexican women and children like serfs and using consumerist articles to suppress the X-Gene and more or less reverse natural evolutionary processes. Likewise, large agribuses use automated self-driving technology that farmers like the Munsons can't compete against.

For that matter, Pierce, Rice, the Reavers and X-24 all get extremely brutal yet very-much-warranted deaths after all the shit they've pulled — Pierce is slowly and painfully murdered by a combination of all the X-23 children's powers, Rice is shot in the throat and left to choke on his own blood, and X-24 is shot in the head with an adamantium bullet that blows most of his skull off.

comment
Dangerous Forbidden Technique: The green "medicine"/mutant growth hormone seen a few times throughout the movie increases mutant powers, but makes the user increasingly aggressive and unstable when taken in large doses. The Reavers offhandedly mention Xavier's brain as being classed as a Weapon of Mass Destruction. Later on, we see why. In his seizures, his ability to stop people psychically is enhanced; however, the people affected feel the power forcing them to remain still, to the point of not breathing. Charles forces himself into a seizure when the Reavers arrive to apprehend Laura, knowing he won't be able to stop himself, and would need Logan or Laura to bring him out of it.

Karmic Death: Rice brags to Logan about how he has killed off the latter's kind for monetary gain. Logan then shoots him with a revolver. Pierce specializes in abusing the young mutants for their "uselessness". When the children have had enough of his cruelty, they proceed to use their powers against him mercilessly. X-24, Logan's clone, ends up getting blasted by the same bullet Logan wanted to kill himself with. This happens when X-24 mercilessly stabs Logan, which then gains Laura's attention — the same girl that X-24 was ordered to hunt down.

 Logan / int_916c72b3
comment
Rule of Symbolism: The final battle between Logan and X-24 is a figurative and literal fight between Logan and the pure rage that exists within him, or more symbolically, Logan's duel with the Wolverine. It even extends to meta. The main reason Hugh Jackman is bowing out of the role is because his aging body can no longer keep with the demands of the character's longevity, hence Logan dying after battling a younger clone of himself. Nature vs nurture. The elemental powers of the X-23 kids (ice, plants, earth, and electricity) and one of the last naturally born mutants Logan who've lived in the wilderness vs the modernized, tech-based mercenaries and scientists of corporate Transigen.

Production Throwback: A subtle one: the first teaser trailer is scored with Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt." The cover page of Kyle and Yost's script for Innocence Lost, X-23's origin book, included a quote from the original Nine Inch Nails version of the song. Somewhat connected, but due to the trailer's usage of said song, it's also one for director James Mangold, who had previously directed the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line. Noted by him in this interview by Empire. And the movie itself ends with a Cash song!

Safe Zone Hope Spot: Played with. Gabriela is trying to get Laura to a place called "Eden", where she can be safe. While Logan is looking through Laura's X-Men comics, one issue has a supposed safe haven for mutants called Eden, and its coordinates match the coordinates he's taking Laura to. Even when he tries to explain the situation to Laura, she's adamant they keep moving. When they finally reach Eden, Logan finds that it's a small, secret hideout in the middle of nowhere where the other X-23 kids have come. It was an agreed-upon meeting spot, inspired by the comic, where all the kids can meet up before they Run for the Border into Canada.

Greater-Scope Villain: Provided that the American company that funded Transigen is Essex Corporation, Mr. Sinister is this without appearing or even being mentioned in the film, which makes sense given that the film takes place in the future and Sinister was likely dealt with in the past already. Transigen also appears to be answering to the US military; following the disastrous confrontation at the Munson farm, Rice gets reamed out by an Army major over the mess.

Taking the Bullet: A Black Comedy version when a carjacker starts firing wildly at Logan and threatening to hit the limousine instead, he tries to put himself in the path of the bullets as he's less vulnerable than the vehicle that's his only source of income.

Foreshadowing: When Xavier is giving Laura a meal, Laura — who is sitting down — easily stops Logan from taking her backpack in a tug of war. One of the Laura's X-Men comic books (specifically created for the film) have the X-Men attending a burial. The film gives you two burials in addition to the funeral service seen at the beginning. An example that doesn't even happen in the movie: Deadpool: No Good Deed (which aired right before Logan during the film's theatrical run) ends with a heavily modified rendition of The Old Man and the Sea. In the film proper, Logan wants to buy a boat so he can take Charles offshore and prevent him from hurting anyone again with his powers. During his first scene in the movie, Xavier says Logan is waiting for him to die. Turns out he's right.

This Is Reality: According to Logan, things didn't happen the way they were supposedly told in Laura's X-Men comics, when they even did happen at all (which he claims is only about a quarter of the material).

Continuity Nod
 Logan / int_9dab0a6e
comment
Continuity Nod: Logan's dog tags from previous films make a re-appearance, establishing that in this timeline, he did not leave them behind at Alkali Lake with Stryker when the forest flooded. A delusional Xavier warns Logan about the Statue of Liberty. Logan thinks he's referencing the events of the first film. However, Logan meets Laura for the first time at a motel, which has a neon sign with a prominent Statue of Liberty on it. In the same scene, Xavier bitterly recounts how Logan was nothing but a drunken cage fighter when the X-Men found him and welcomed him into their home, something else that happened in the first movie. Logan carries an Adamantium bullet on him, implied to be the one from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. In Logan's bedroom, a katana can be seen mounted on the wall, presumably acquired during the events of The Wolverine. A Freeze-Frame Bonus reveals that Transigen has somehow acquired the DNA of Chris Bradley. One that didn't make the final film: During the original cut of the dinner scene, the Munsons ask if Logan was married. Xavier intercedes with a wistful remembrance of Jean Grey, before referencing her death and Logan's hands during the climax of X-Men: The Last Stand (implied to be from him reading Logan's memories of the old timeline). The part about Jean was ultimately cut for being too dark for the scene.

Mood Whiplash: A Deadpool: No Good Deed is attached at the beginning, effectively serving as a Pre-Opening-Credits Stinger that emphasizes Black Comedy of the lowbrow variety. And then it's followed by the story of a suicidal old man trying to save a mute eleven-year-old from enslavement by a group of murderers and thugs. Within the movie itself, Xavier's confession to Logan turns from tragically heartfelt to horrifying when it turns out that it's not Logan who's listening, but X-24, who is there to kill the old man.

Super Strength: Logan continues to display his superhuman strength that was present in the 2013 film, albeit toned down due to his advanced age and poisoning, but still able to easily grapple and toss a Reaver with such force that he knocks a group of them down. X-24 however is another story, being a clone of Logan in peak condition. He tosses an adamantium-heavy Logan through the air like a beach ball, donkey kicks him over a parked Humvee, and easily lifts an armored truck up and off himself.

Considering what Laura nearly did to the convenience store clerk when he took her food away... The Reaver who suddenly sees Logan approaching him outside the hotel room and unable to do anything about it as Xavier's telepathic seizure has frozen all his motor functions along with everyone in the casino-hotel, making him unable to even fall down when Logan stabs him in the face. The baddie rangers have such a moment when they see X-24 not being bothered by their gunshots and their leader getting his head chopped off.

All for Nothing: In this particular timeline — not the main one — all the struggling that the Professor Xavier and his X-Men went through to protect mutantkind in the previous movies—especially in X-Men: Days of Future Past—come across as a moot point given the fact that most mutants died out anyway, along with several of the X-Men themselves, not due to some big final battle, but thanks to one of Xavier's telepathic seizures. Pretty much the whole saga is ultimately for nothing and comes to a horrible end.

Film Noir
 Logan / int_b034d333
comment
Film Noir: Although not to the same extent as The Wolverine, Logan nonetheless draws from the genre. It's especially evident in the film techniques themselves, with the editing, framing, and lighting all showing a strong Noir influence. The Black and White edit on the home release is even called Logan Noir. The situation at the start of the film, with Logan as a low-rent poor driver, dragged to take a dangerous task by a woman whose motives he doesn't entirely trust, and being threatened by shady trenchcoat wearing thugs to walk away is more or less the situation of 80% of all noir films. Likewise, the situation of Logan going back and forth from the Mexican border suggests Touch of Evil, the film that ended the original noir movement.

Talk to the Fist: Laura pulls this on Logan after Charles' death, and she reveals for the first time she can talk. The two get into a heated argument where Laura insists Logan make good on his agreement to take her to Eden, and Logan loses his temper and screams at her to shut up. Her response is to punch him in the face. Better yet, it works: Logan gives in, and takes her the rest of the way (at least until he passes out from his wounds and Laura has to take over at the wheel).

Internal Homage: Logan is Xavier's full-time caregiver, just like Hank McCoy was in the 1973 scenes of X-Men: Days of Future Past. When Laura raids the gas station, "I Got A Name" by Jim Croce is played. Another of Croce's songs, "Time In A Bottle", was listened to by Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past. A piece of Found Footage viral marketing shows Laura's claws being bonded with Adamantium. The surgery scene directly echoes the similar scene in Innocence Lost, while a shot of Laura cutting herself with her claws framed to resemble the cover of NYX #4. The same shot also gives a nod to scenes of her cutting herself and playing with her claws in her cell from her origin series.

Too Dumb to Live
 Logan / int_b58b4e3c
comment
Too Dumb to Live: The carjackers at the beginning of the film who don't seem to acknowledge Logan's claws or inhuman durability. While he survives it, Pierce's initial confrontation with Logan at Logan's hideout is very poorly considered. He's alone without ready backup against one person he knows has killing claws and is all-but-immune to guns, looking for a second person he should know has similar lethal potential and does not like him. Laura ambushes him with a thrown pipe to the head and he lives only because Logan merely stomps on his head and gives Caliban a gun instead of straight-up beheading him. While facing Logan, a villain goes on a Motive Rant near the end of the movie, explaining why he's trying to hurt Logan and those around him. Naturally, Logan just kills him. The villain is Zander Rice, who bragged about wiping out the mutants in front of the most dangerous mutant alive.

Recursive Fiction: X-Men comic books exist in the universe of the film, though Logan is sure to note they are only Very Loosely Based on a True Story. For instance, he never wore yellow spandex. A deleted scene has Laura's friend Bobby playing with action figures of Wolverine and Sabretooth. He then asks Logan if Sabretooth was ever real, or just a bad guy from the comic books. During Logan's funeral, Bobby's holding clutching a Wolverine action figure close to his chest.

Shout-Out

Shout-Out: The Munsons' situation (a corrupt big business trying to force them to give up their home) parallels the Starretts in Shane, made more explicit by the film itself being shown in the hotel room scene, and Laura later quoting it at Logan's makeshift grave. Furthermore, Mangold himself cites Shane as one of the film's influences.

Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: This is a given with Wolverine and X-23, but the movie brings it Up to Eleven. Pierce shoots Laura with a harpoon gun through her torso, and later Logan gets a harpoon through his thigh. At one point, X-24 gets rammed with a pick-up truck, right through a tractor's spikes. Rice's healing serum lets him fully recover by the finale. In the final battle, X-24 shoves Logan through a jagged branch jutting out of a log, meathook style. It's not pretty.

Ascended Fridge Horror: Remember back in X2: X-Men United, when Xavier caused mutants and then humans horrible, debilitating pain for a few minutes, worldwide? Which probably led to shedloads of accidents and fatalities, and could easily have been lethal if he had wanted? Now the world's most powerful telepath has a degenerative brain disease that causes dangerous seizures when he is not medicated. One of them killed several X-Men, and the ones we see in the film cause paralysis and incredible pain for hundreds of people at once.

Protagonist Title: It's a no-brainer who the main character of the film is, it's Logan, who is better known as the Wolverine. Using his real name not only calls Shane, an inspiration for Logan, to mind, it also describes the more grounded and character-based nature of Logan compared to the fantastical and crazy X-Men movies.

Spiritual Antithesis: To Deadpool (2016). Both are graphically-violent R-rated spin-offs from the X-Men Film Series, but whereas Deadpool was a Bloody Hilarious, cheerfully-amoral black comedy, this is an elegiac modern western about two beloved characters from the earlier films getting old and dying. Honest Trailers even lampshades it, to Deadpool (2016)'s consternation:

Lighter and Softer: Laura's origin compared to the books, to an extent. For example, a clip of Laura's claws getting bonded with adamantium shows her put under for the procedure. However in the original Innocence Lost Zander Rice performed the procedure himself, and denied her an anesthetic. The film will also be skipping her time as a prostitute (fortunately, considering this version of Laura is even younger than her comics self).

Nature vs. Nurture: The entire theme of Laura's arc is this, will she become an animal or will Logan help her into becoming someone normal? This is hit on its head while Laura watches Logan, still grieving from Charles' death, trashing the car they were using, and then sees a man playing with his dog, just having a normal day, seeing the difference between a man who's doubtless lived a relatively happy life versus one whose life has been filled with endless tragedy.

What the Hell, Hero?: Charles to Logan, reminding him that he was squandering his gifts as a cage fighter when they found him and is doing the same again. The fact that he can deliver this in his first scene really sets the tone. It's untranslated in the film, but Laura's angry outburst of Spanish when she reveals she actually can speak is actually her chewing him out over the way he had been treating her up to that point:

Adaptational Wimp: This is the case for Pierce and his Reavers. In the comics, they were mutant-hating cyborgs and one of the deadliest threats to the X-Men; in Logan, they're simply normal human Private Military Contractors with a few cybernetic limbs instead of full body conversions. This also extends towards Logan; in the original comic, he was not losing his Healing Factor, though it was slowing down. In the comics, Caliban is a formidable fighter with Super Strength (at least, after his transformation at the hands of Apocalypse). In Logan, he is a Non-Action Guy (which actually matches his earlier appearance with the Morlocks).

Bad Future: A downplayed example, as the film's future setting is not nearly as dystopic as the Sentinel-dominated future depicted in Days of Future Past.

Continuity Snarl

Continuity Snarl: According to Word of God from James Mangold, the film occurs in the adjusted timeline from the end of Days of Future Past, but various mismatches still exist in the Continuity Nods to many events, all of them from the original timeline films, which are suggested to still have happened in this film, despite things like Jean Grey's Phoenix powers surfacing in the 1980s instead of 2000s, and Deadpool being born years later (and having no involvement in the Weapon X project) in the reset timeline. Though some of this can be chalked up to Charles and Logan both having knowledge of the original timeline by 2029, and the general difficulty of Temporal Mutability as theorized by Hank back in Days of Future Past. Much could also be a result of Broad Strokes: Certain events still occur in the new timeline, but not in quite the same way.

Composite Character

comment
Composite Character: Xavier seems to partially take on the role of Hawkeye from the original comic of being an older ally of Wolverine. It's also implied that he accidentally killed several of the X-Men with his powers during a seizure, taking Wolverine's role as their unknowing killer. Donald Pierce is X-23's handler and pursuer, becoming a stand-in for Kimura in the process. X-24 goes 3-way: (1) the visual appearance, superior strength, and animal ferocity of Victor Creed; (2) Logan's estranged son Daken, with all the abilities and ruthlessness in his prime; and (3) Albert, the android clone of Wolverine serving as Pierce and the Reavers' lap dog. Zander Rice is built on elements of both Rice in the books (Logan killing his father during his rampage escaping Weapon X), along with Martin Sutter (being the outright head of the project, like Sutter, not just the lead scientist as Rice was in the books) and Sarah Kinney (being the geneticist responsible for Laura's creation, not just a surgeon as Rice was in the books). The modified crops Transigen made to kill mutants combines both the depowering of mutants after House of M (in part since the events of Old Man Logan had the villains rise up after Civil War) and the Legacy Virus (a stand-in for AIDS during the '90s comics).

It's definitely fulfilling once he meets his death from the hands of Logan.

comment
Decomposite Character: Dr. Sarah Kinney does not appear in the film but three characters share parts her personality and actions in the comics. Zander Rice has her brilliant geneticist mind and made Laura, while Gabriela has her compassion and freed Laura. Finally, Logan is the one who is killed in the climax attempting to free her from her pursuers, with whom she spends a heartbreaking final moment, and whose death most profoundly affects her. Four if you want to count the unnamed, unseen woman who birthed Laura. As noted under "Composite Character", the parts of the story that adapt Old Man Logan sometimes have characters besides Logan take on the role of his comic-book counterpart. Specifically, Professor Xavier takes Logan's role as the unknowing killer of the X-Men. Laura is known as X-23 in the source material. Here, she is only one of a group of "X-23" mutants. She is specifically known as X23-23.

20 Minutes into the Future
 Logan / int_f32d85ab
comment
20 Minutes into the Future: Invoked by director James Mangold, who wanted to keep the film much more grounded—thus the lack of futuristic amenities like Xavier's hoverchair from Days of Future Past. The film is set in 2029; for the most part, it looks similar to the contemporary late-2010s, albeit with a few futuristic elements: Tigers are extinct. Logan's limousine is a sleek and slightly concept-car-looking Chrysler with a completely digital dashboard. Pierce refers to it as a "24 Chrysler", suggesting the model was first released in 2024 or late 2023. Advanced robotic limbs (Pierce's robotic hand has more fluidity of movement than a normal hand, such as making a fist both ways, which is quite far-fetched in real life yet). The hotel room television in Oklahoma City is much larger, thinner and sleeker than most current models (especially those found in hotels). The cars being sold at the beater lot that Logan buys the pickup from all appear to be from the late 2010s. Numerous self-driving freight trucks are seen on the highways, completely devoid of cabins in order to maximise room for storage. Logan and Will Munson talk briefly about the huge (but only distantly-seen) automated farming machines harvesting a cornfield. Said fields are used to produce GMO corn to make a new syrup that is very popular in food and drinks and supposedly has many health benefits. It actually modifies a population's DNA over time; specifically, it wipes out mutant genes, thus sterilizing and ultimately shrinking the mutant population. Genetic engineering, in general, is highly advanced; it allows Transigen to artificially inseminate women from simple blood samples to create the X-23 series experiments, rather than requiring harvested gametes. Additionally, the science has reached the point of growing a fully sentient adult clone of Logan in a matter of weeks from parts grown in vats that are later surgically assembled.

Dark Reprise
 Logan / int_f3fd818b
comment
Dark Reprise: Inverted. "Old Man Logan" (a bleak, depressing western-type track) plays at the beginning, while we see the muted agony he lives through day by day (As he's pulling out his stuck claw with his bare hands, while hungover and covered in fresh wounds). However, at the very end, when he finally dies, having saved the mutant kids, with his daughter holding his hand we hear the same music start, only to turn into the sweet, emotional reprise "Don't Be What They Made You".

Everybody Owns a Ford
 Logan / int_f4158af7
comment
Everybody Owns a Ford: FIAT Chrysler Automobiles make up the bulk of the vehicles with any real screen time; Logan drives a futuristic Chrysler limo and later a modern Dodge pickup truck, Gabreilla drives a Fiat, and the Reavers' vehicles are a mixture of up-armored Dodge and Ford pickups. Unusually for a sponsored car, Logan's pickup unceremoniously breaks down and gets trashed by Logan.

Product Placement
 Logan / int_f511ea9b
comment
Product Placement: Charles advertises Taco Bell during his crazy rant by quoting a commercial word for word. Laura is eating a bowl of Kellogg's Corn Flakes with the box in clear view for multiple shots. One scene features Laura eating a tube of Pringles potato chips with a Snickers logo in the background, after which she shoplifts a pair of Shopkins sunglasses. She wears these shades throughout the rest of the movie. There's also Logan's Chrysler limousine and Gabriela's Fiat 500, and a lot of prominently placed Ford cars from a wide range of eras. The featuring of the food products is actually justified in that it is revealed that corn syrup has been used to target the mutant gene. Showing the characters eating convenience food — exactly the kinds of thing that depend on corn syrup in their production — foreshadows the plot point. Charles's quoting of the Taco Bell commercial could even be his trying to communicate something he has picked up telepathically since Taco Bell is so, well, corny. An entire sequence takes place at (a fictional) Harrah's Casino and Hotel in Oklahoma City.

Shoo Out the Clowns
 Logan / int_f97b5d33
comment
Shoo Out the Clowns: While Charles' situation is more tragic than funny, his confused ramblings and familial bickering with Logan provide some moments of levity in the first half of the film. After Charles is killed, that all stops.

R-Rated Opening
 Logan / int_f9ab4501
comment
R-Rated Opening: The opening fight would never get away with a PG-13. Logan's first line is "Fuck," a couple of gang members are trying to jack his limo's rims, he's shot by them, and in the fight that follows, Logan severs limbs and skewers an adversary's head with his claws. The small-scale brutality of the fight also establishes that this is going to be a much more brutal experience than any of the other X-Men movies.

The Dog Bites Back
 Logan / int_fb3576b2
comment
The Dog Bites Back: Laura and the other Transigen kids were horrifically tortured and abused by their makers. In fact Pierce treats Laura like a disobedient puppy when he tries to recapture her at Logan's hideaway. Laura especially makes a mess of them once they've been pushed too far. The others work together to kill Pierce. Caliban is captured, tortured with sunlight by Pierce, and then forced to use his powers to track Logan, Laura, and Charles while locked in a cage. When one of the Reavers leaves some grenades within his reach, he doesn't hesitate to pull the pins and take them all out.

You Killed My Father
 Logan / int_fb6b207f
comment
You Killed My Father: A downplayed example with Zander Rice. When Logan and Dr. Rice meet, Rice reveals that his father was a scientist in the Weapon X program, and Logan correctly assumes that he killed him. However, unlike his comic counterpart, Rice seems to hold no grudge against Logan for this, and actually seems to agree that his father was an asshole. X-24's less than happy when Pierce reveals that Logan killed Dr. Rice, his creator.
