He has a past shrouded in mystery. A skeleton sheathed in indestructible metal. Unbreakable claws that can cut through almost anything. And a "mutant healing factor" that can mend virtually any wound.
His friends call him Logan. The X-Men call him Wolverine.
While visiting Japan, Logan is recruited to recover a stolen experimental drug, one that has the potential to be a true miracle cure for all human disease -- or a sadistic means of enslaving the world. With every hour bringing mankind closer to tragedy, Logan embarks on a daring mission to identify the thieves and thwart their terrifying agenda.
From the back alleys of Tokyo to the smugglers' coves of Brazil, from the opulent palaces of St. Petersburg to the war-torn villages of Africa, Logan's quest takes him from one deadly setting to the next. But his desperate last stand will test the limits of his abilities -- and his courage -- like never before.
