The Near-Death of Wolverine (in 1984)

The recent Death of Wolverine event featured Kitty Pryde and Wolverine reminiscing about their shared experiences. Seems unreal to see a call back so central to the relationship of these two characters that happened thirty years ago.

The mini-series Kitty Pryde and Wolverine hit the stands in the latter part of 1984. Aside from Claremont and Miller's 'Wolverine' mini-series, this was by far the coolest Wolverine joint going at the time. Claremont managed to make Kitty Pryde cool and there was all that ninja fighting action.

We had an iteration of Wolverine that wasn't nearly unstoppable, in fact a katana to the chest from a brain-washed Kitty very nearly put him down. 

It also featured Wolverine entering his 'berzerker rage', something we don't see much of these days.

Kitty Pryde and Wolverine is still a fun read and if issue #3 of Death of Wolverine left you with some questions, I would recommend checking it out.
