Now, after a horrendous descent and fiery crash into a rural Nebraska cornfield, he lies at the edge of death, lapsing in and out of a coma as his body desperately tries to heal. And that's when things really get bad. The men who sent the robot to destroy Wolverine have come to finish the job. The townsfolk who witnessed the crash have gathered up a mob to hunt down and destroy the alien that's landed. And Wolverine's fate just might rest in the hands of the strange little girl who first found him in that dark cornfield. A strange little girl with an affinity for taking care of odd creatures, and whose family holds a deep, dark secret hidden from the light of day... House of Blood and Sorrow is an all new 34-page chilling story just in time for Halloween!

Penciler(s): Bart Sears
Writer(s): Frank Tieri
Release Date: October 2005
Comic Summary: Five years from now, a man lies near death in a room. He recalls how it all began 24 hours earlier. The Director goes to the cell, where he stops his troops from torturing Logan, as he still thinks that they are partners, thanks to the hallucinations in his head. The Director asked his men to put the guns away and release Logan. They do, and Logan took advantage of the situation by killing all of the guards, including the Director! Six years from now, the Director is revealed alive. He managed to convince Mesmero and Wild Child to rejoin his case and, armed with army of Sentinels, they attacked the X-Mansion! While the X-Men were fighting the Sentinels, Sauron and Mesmero managed to sneak in the mansion unnoticed, and combine their hypnotic powers to mind-control Xavier, and now threaten to kill him. The X-Men had no choice but to surrender. Wolverine arrives, but the Director calms him down after threatening to kill Logan’s friend, Shadowcat, instead. Logan withdraws his claws, but the Director kills Kitty anyway! The Sentinels shoot at Logan, and he flies across the yard. Once the Director and his agents made it out of the mansion, the Sentinels blow it up entirely, with the X-Men still inside! But, since the Sentinels were programmed to kill all the mutants, they also kill Mesmero and Wild Child, despite the Director’s wishes not to. Sauron is left alive, since he isn’t really a mutant. The Director orders Sauron to clean up things, while the Director goes to gloat over Wolverine’s body. The Director is fully aware that Logan isn’t truly dead, and that his healing factor will kick in sooner or later and recover him. And when that time comes, the Director is ready for him. He walks away, leaving Logan’s corpse, with part of his adamantium skeleton revealed.

In order to help Logan’s mental trauma, Xavier and Jean travel into Logan’s mind, where they find that he is tormented more than they realized. In the astral plane, the two X-Men see Logan’s past attacking him. After watching scene after scene of Logan’s memories, Jean asks Xavier to terminate the psi-link with Logan, in order to not see anymore of his private memories. Back in the physical world, they learn the Blackbird is disintegrating around them. On the ground, Logan’s teammates frantically listen, as the plane begins to tear itself apart. Reluctantly, Xavier has to go back into Logan’s mind, because he is near death now and Xavier wants to try one last time to save his friend. Seeing Xavier, Logan pleads for him to let him loose and, reluctantly, Xavier does, leaving Logan to face the end by himself. Back on the Blackbird, stresses cause the hatch to open and Jean is nearly sucked out. It is Logan, however, who comes to her aid, after hearing her screams, which brought him back. With everything settled down, the Blackbird finally makes it back to the mansion. Two weeks later, the X-Men are training in the Danger Room when Wolverine walks in, asking if he can train too. Xavier, complying with Logan’s wishes, allows him to fight two battle drones alone. Wishing to end the fight, Logan releases his claws but, to everyone’s surprise, they are not covered with adamantium anymore but are bone, meaning Logan must have been born with his claws. A week later, Logan sits outside of the mansion with Jubilee by his side and the two discuss how each of them is going through hard, life trials, each in their own way. That night, Logan leaves the mansion, checking on Jubilee before he leaves. He lays a note on her dresser to tell her good bye.

Sitting on a mountainside, Logan wonders what his lot in life is. Just then, Melita Garner comes up to Logan and tells him that he has friends that care about him. Looking around, Logan sees a number of his friends from the Avengers and the X-Men standing there. Logan determines that it’s time to go back to work. When asked later who Wolverine is, Logan answers that he doesn’t know; he’s still a work in progress.

Comic Summary: Kitty Pryde writes a journal entry about her first day as an X-Man. She describes her fellow mutants, noting that the only one she doesn’t understand is Wolverine. Professor X summons her to his office and assigns her to a mutant search-and-rescue mission with a reluctant Wolverine. Wolverine ignores her attempts at conversation and tries to ditch her when they arrive at their mission destination in West Virginia. Eventually, the two X-Men enter the town and are ambushed by hysterical townspeople. Wolverine goes into a rage, and a panicked Kitty runs away. She comes across a ransacked house that has been tagged with anti-mutant slurs, and finds evidence of a young mutant girl in the house’s family photos. She takes some clothing with the girl’s scent to Wolverine, who calms down and begins tracking her, using his heightened senses. They find Michelle, the mutant girl, lost and barely surviving in the wilderness. Kitty explains that Michelle got lost in the woods, then tried to send a distress signal, using her mutant ability to amplify emotions. However, all she did was broadcast her distress and it drove the town crazy. With the rescue mission complete, Wolverine and Kitty return home. Kitty overhears Xavier telling Wolverine that he assigned Kitty to work with him so Wolverine would soften up a bit. Kitty smiles at this, and concludes that this is the first day she has felt at home since joining the X-Men. As she leaves to go on a motorcycle ride with Wolverine, she comments that this is probably the first time he’s felt at home as well.

Comic Summary: Having decided that he’s waited long enough to face the truth about his past, Logan contacts Nightcrawler to talk. On the rooftop of the Cliff House restaurant, Logan repeats his history with Mariko. From the first time he saw her and saved her from being crushed with an earthquake, writing letters back and forth, discovering that she was married, his conflict with Lord Shingen and their unsuccessful attempt at being married. He then recounted the time when Mariko died at his own hands after she had been poisoned with blowfish toxin. Logan confesses to Kurt that he had killed her not because she wanted him to but because he didn’t want their love to die. Kurt proceeds to point out to him that she was going to die anyway and that she died on her terms, not his and that’s what he can’t handle. Logan thanks him for listening and after they exchange goodbyes, meets up with Daken, who will be joining him in his next mission.
