For a loner, the mutant known as Wolverine sure has a lot of friends. Through the years, he's been a member of countless teams and alliances, but some of his relationships have been more tender in nature. He's had sidekicks of sorts in the likes of Kitty Pryde and X-23, and especially Jubilee. Finding a surrogate daughter in her, Wolverine has always tried to protect Jubilee from the dangerous life they lead. And now that she's fallen victim to a vampire's bite, she needs him more than ever - whether she likes it or not. As Jubilee spins out of control, Wolverine has dedicated himself to saving her humanity - but with her fate hanging in the balance, he may just have to kill a few people to stop her from doing the same. This time, protecting Jubilee may put them both in their graves! Collecting WOLVERINE AND JUBILEE #1-4 and UNCANNY X-MEN (1963) #244.
