The Incomplete Wolverine, Part 4

Posted on Sunday, August 2, 2020 by Paul in Wolverine

Part 1: Origin to Origin II
Part 2: 1907 to 1914
Part 3: 1914 to 1939

We’ve reached the Second World War – and this is a busy period, though still quite a scattershot one.

Flashback in WOLVERINE: ORIGINS #9
“Savior, part 4” by Daniel Way & Steve Dillon
December 2006

It’s somewhere on the eve of World War II. And we have to begin by unscrambling a continuity problem, since Daniel Way’s timeline gets garbled at this point. In narrating this flashback, Wolverine calls it his first mission “after being picked up in Jasmine Falls”. We’ll get to Jasmine Falls in a future instalment, but suffice to say that it’s the town where Logan fathered Daken.

The trouble is, Daniel Way had already showed Logan’s extraction from Jasmine Falls in Wolverine vol 3 #38 and #40, and it clearly happened after World War II, because the Winter Soldier was involved. So whatever this issue may say, it’s not after Jasmine Falls. (It’s an unusual lapse, since whatever else you say about Wolverine: Origins, Daniel Way certainly did his research.)

Anyway… Logan is back working for Romulus. He’s sent to Russia to protect young Natasha Romanova (the future Black Widow). He’s recently undergone one of his periodic memory wipes at the hands of Romulus, and he doesn’t know who his superiors are getting their orders from. As pointed out in the comments to a previous post, the notion that Wolverine has massive gaps in his memory is a late addition; Claremont merely had him with a memory gap around the implantation of his adamantium skeleton, and it’s not until the Larry Hama run that Wolverine becomes aware that his earlier memories have been extensively tampered with. In Way’s run, it’s just routine for Logan to be periodically mindwiped, and at least it helps account for some of his inconsistent portrayals.

Logan spends “a little over two years” with Natasha’s custodian Taras Romanov, learning from him, and secretly training Natasha at night. Logan’s timeline no longer has space for him to spend two years here, but it’s certainly an extended stay, and he’s still in Russia in 1940. When Logan asks Taras who they ultimately work for, Taras dodges the question and advises against investigating it further. Throughout Way’s stories, Logan seems to be surrounded by characters who know more about what’s going on than he does, presumably because Romulus is treating Logan as a weapon rather than a proper agent.

Logan’s stay in Russia ends with one of those pointlessly convoluted schemes that show up so often in Romulus stories. Taras engineers a scenario where Natasha will kill Logan as her final test, but Logan kills Taras instead (thinking that Taras knows too much), and encourages Natasha to go underground and stay dead. Broadly, the idea is that Logan is aware of someone manipulating him, and he’s trying to steer Natasha away from that life. We’ll pick up this thread a little later on, because quite obviously Natasha doesn’t take his advice.

This story is re-told in Black Widow: Deadly Origin #1 – that version sticks to the general thrust of Way’s original, but differs wildly in many of the details.

After Russia, we have a batch of minor flashbacks:

  • Later in 1940, Logan is in Paris. As shown in Wolverine / Hercules: Myths, Monsters & Mutants #1, Baron Strucker attacks the city in a Nazi war machine, and gets defeated by Hercules. Logan doesn’t directly interact with either of them, but he’s on the scene, and kills one of Strucker’s men.
  • Wolverine: Origins #17 shows Logan and the Devil’s Brigade fighting in World War II. Officially, they’re part of the Canadian armed forces, but Silas Burr is still Logan’s commanding officer, and they’re obviously taking orders from Romulus. Whether Romulus is hiring them out to the military, or pursuing some agenda of his own with the aid of corrupt elements within the military, is never very clear, but it doesn’t really matter – in Way’s stories, Logan generally doesn’t know for sure who he’s working for or what their real agenda is, and that’s kind of the point. A brief flashback shows the Devil’s Brigade killing German soldiers despite their attempts to surrender.
  • Wolverine vol 2 #50 has a generic single panel flashback to Logan fighting in World War II.
  • Hot off the press, last week’s Wolverine vol 7 #3 has a single-panel flashback of Logan as a soldier, fighting in what looks to be World War II. Victor Creed is also there in the same unit – that hasn’t been shown anywhere else, and earns this otherwise generic panel a mention.
  • Next, Romulus sends Logan back to Madripoor, where he’s reunited with Seraph. In a flashback in Wolverine: Origins #18, Logan sees Seraph arguing with a representative of the Hand, who have fallen out with Romulus for some reason.

Flashback in UNCANNY X-MEN vol 1 #268
“Madripoor Knights” by Chris Claremont, Jim Lee & Scott Williams
September 1990

Late summer, 1941. Logan is still in Madripoor. In the original story, he helps novice superhero Captain America (and Natasha’s guardian Ivan Petrovich) to rescue innocent little Natasha Romanova from Baron Strucker and the Hand. Logan explains that he was investigating the Hand, but never really explains what his interest in them was. (This contradicts the first Wolverine miniseries, where Wolverine seems to meet the Hand for the first time… again. Logan’s memory problems only go so far to fix that one, and it’s probably fair to take that dialogue as retconned out.)

Obviously, “Madripoor Knights” doesn’t fit with Wolverine: Origins #9. Daniel Way addresses that in a series of flashbacks in Wolverine: Origins #16, but he does so by heavily re-writing the story. Logan is working for Romulus. He was investigating the Hand, because they were in a feud with Romulus at this point. Natasha was not an innocent little girl at all, but some sort of espionage prodigy, feigning naivety for Cap’s benefit. And far from being happy about Logan’s attempt to set her on a new direction, she saw him as asking her to abandon her identity and start from scratch. Way adds a scene (a very contrived rewrite of an incident in the original story) in which Logan tries again to persuade her to take control of her life, but much more hesitantly, apparently realising that either they’re both equally doomed, or he’s failing to take his own advice. She responds by shooting him. It’s all very Wolverine: Origins – there’s a character point in there, but struggling under the weight of a horrifically convoluted plot which sucks a lot of the fun out of the original material.

Cap and Logan part on good terms, having apparently earned each other’s respect. In the Origins version, part of Logan’s mission was to gain Cap’s confidence – hence, Way’s Logan is pretending to be more impressed than he really is. Logan is instructed to exploit this link by turning Cap, or by finding a way of reproducing the super-soldier serum. If neither of those work, he’s meant to kill Cap when the opportunity presents itself. That leads into…

Flashbacks in WOLVERINE: ORIGINS #17-20
“Our War, parts 2-5” by Daniel Way & Steve Dillon
November 2007 to February 2008

November 1941. Logan is back with the Devil’s Brigade, now in North Africa. When a parachute drop goes awry, Captain America and a group of soldiers are stuck somewhere in the area, and Logan and Nick Fury are sent to find him. Logan plans to ingratiate himself to Cap as a potential partner, only to find that the role is already filled by Bucky Barnes. Quite how Logan failed to spot this while preparing for his mission is anyone’s guess – maybe we can chalk it up to a botched mindwipe.

Logan and Nick tag along for Cap’s original mission: they infiltrate Baron Strucker’s base, and discover an early incarnation of his private army HYDRA. Bucky is (quite rightly) deeply suspicious about Logan, while Logan becomes increasingly distracted by trying to uncover his employer’s hidden agenda, and so much tension ensues between the two. Strucker turns out to be in league with Romulus, and so Logan is told to protect Strucker at all costs, and to kill Cap and Bucky. Logan tries to tank that mission without being too obvious about it. Basically, he helps capture Strucker, but then openly betrays Cap by handing Strucker over to Baron Zemo. Cap and Bucky defeat Logan (who throws the fight) and leave him for dead. As so often with Origins, the story suffocates under the weight of the plot convolutions.

World War Hulk: Captain America vs Wolverine #1-2 has generic flashbacks of Logan, Bucky and Captain America in World War II, which can probably be taken as non-literal references to the above story.

WOLVERINE vol 3 #32
“Prisoner Number Zero” by Mark Millar & Kaare Andrews
September 2005

Spring 1942. Logan has somehow wound up in the Sobibor extermination camp in Poland, where he is a silent and impassive prisoner. New commandant Major Bauman takes command and tries again and again to kill Logan for his impudence, only for him to keep showing up alive and well, week after week. Finally Baumann concludes that Logan must have superhuman healing powers, and decides to torture him instead. But Logan’s silent treatment provokes Baumann into accidentally starting a fire which kills him. The story implies that much the same happened to the previous commander, and much the same will happen to the next one. It’s a story of no wider importance to continuity, but it’s very good. How Logan got into the camp and how he got out have never been told (nor do they matter to the story).

Wolverine vol 2 #106 has a flashback where Logan helps to train the Greek resistance, and meets a man called Stavros (who isn’t important, but he later becomes an acquaintance of Elektra). No specific date is given for this, but the organised Greek resistance started in 1942, so it’s as good a place as any.

I HEART MARVEL: MY MUTANT HEART #1
“The Promise” by Daniel Way & Ken Knudtsen
April 2006

(Wrongly listed on Marvel Unlimited as I (Heart) Marvel #2.) Berlin, 1943. Logan is in a relationship with another agent, Catharina. They’re sent to assassinate evil scientist Dr Maier. But he’s captured Catharina’s sisters, so she betrays Logan. Being a villain, Maier double crosses her anyway and kills her, then gasses Logan in order to make his escape. Logan pledges to hunt Maier down and kill him. The framing sequence shows that Maier died in 2006, the year of publication, so Logan probably got mind-wiped again before he caught up to the guy. The story leaves it ambiguous whether Logan finally tracked him down and killed him after regaining his memory, or whether the guy had simply died of old age.

Another few minor entries next:

  • Wolverine: Origins #26 has a flashback to Logan at the Tule Lake War Relocation Center in California in 1943. Logan acts as a translator to tell eleven Japanese detainees, who are suspected of being spies, that they can potentially earn their freedom by signing on for a secret project. Naturally, it’s one of Romulus’s schemes, and they’re taken to a hidden laboratory, where Romulus’s scientists experiment on them. Logan spends 118 days preventing anyone from leaving (including the scientists). Once the results are reported back, he destroys the laboratory and kills everyone inside.
  • In New X-Men vol 1 #142, Wolverine mentions a girl he met “in Arnhem Land, 1943”. Arnhem Land is an area in the Northern Territory of Australia, so if that comment’s to be taken literally, apparently he drops by Australia at some point in 1943.
  • Wolverine vol 2 #34 has a flashback to Logan participating in a parachute drop over Normandy on 6 June 1944. He impresses a soldier called Doolin (who shows up again as a Canadian policeman in the present day – sliding time now poses problems for this).
  • Wolverine vol 2 #78 has a brief flashback showing what happened after Logan landed – he fought the vampiric creature Bloodscream for the first time.

WOLVERINE #1000
“Last Men Standing” by Vince Hernandez & Luke Ross
February 2011

This anthology has two stories set in World War II. “Last Men Standing” is a 8-pager set in the Ardennes Forest in 1944. Logan has been assigned to a regular military unit, who recognise him as an obvious outsider. He earns their trust by defeating a German tank. Basic stuff. We’ll come back to the other story momentarily, but first…

MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS vol 3 #1 and #9
“The Vigil, parts 1 and 9” by Charles Soule, Paolo Siqueira & Oren Junior
January and September 2019

Northern France, 1945. Logan’s squadron stumble upon a group of Nazis who are forcing witch Marie D’Arqueness (yes, really) to summon a demon, by holding her daughter Sylvie D’Arqueness hostage. The Nazis hope to make the demon into a controllable weapon. Instead, Marie summons up an uncontrollable demon, the Truth. Quickly realising that this is not an improvement, she helps Logan fight it. Just then, a future Wolverine, an adult Sylvie and their daughter Rien show up from an alternate future timeline, bringing their own version of the Truth with them. The two demons fight, and the D’Arquenesses combine forces to turn them to stone, along with the alternate Wolverine and Sylvie. But Rien survives, and is apparently out there somewhere.

If you haven’t guessed, this is a self-cancelling time travel storyline that plays out over several decades; the summary above is the bit that happened to our Wolverine, and none of the rest is canon for the mainstream Marvel Universe.

WOLVERINE #1000
“Last of the Devil’s Brigade” by Rick Spears, Timothy Green & Veronica Gandini
February 2011

28 April 1945 (so a week or two before Germany surrendered). The Devil’s Brigade are on a commando raid on a German base, but their plane is shot down and only Logan survives. Inside the base, he finds Nazi mystics trying to create a werewolf super-soldier. They turn a German soldier into a werewolf, but he’s not much of a threat because he’s vulnerable to iron – including his own medals. After the bad guys are defeated, Nick Fury shows up to reveal that the Nazi mad scientists are going to America to work on a new super-soldier project, Weapon Plus. Logan realises that even though this war is almost over, the people in charge are already preparing for the next one.

Flashbacks in LOGAN #1-3
by Brian K Vaughan & Eduardo Risso
May to July 2008

Logan is caught in Burma trying to blow up a train, and winds up in a Japanese prisoner of war camp. He escapes along with fellow prisoner Lt Warren, who turns out to be fanatically anti-Japanese. Logan stops Warren from killing a local woman, Atsuko. Atsuko takes Logan in and the two make love. Convinced that Logan is a traitor, Warren returns in the morning, and they fight again. By sheer coincidence, Warren is apparently a mutant too. The fight goes on until – yes, you guessed it – the nuclear bomb drops, because it’s Hiroshima. Atsuko is killed, Logan survives, and Warren is tied to the location as an immortal evil spirit (where he shows up again in the main story).

Next time, the post-war era – Landau, Luckman & Lake, and Jasmine Falls.

Edited on 9 August 2020 to add New X-Men #142.

Bring on the comments

  1. Voord 99 says:

    “Sylvie d’Arqueness” is the best name ever. I demand more comics with this character in it.

    Although I’d imagine that to have one’s parents name one “Rien” would set a French person up for some therapy bills.

  2. SanityOrMadness says:

    > Although I’d imagine that to have one’s parents name one “Rien” would set a French person up for some therapy bills

    That’s actually addressed, rather than an accident – the d’Arquenesses see her as a weapon, not a person, hence the derogatory name.

  3. Daniel says:

    Wtf was Daniel Way attempting with Romulus? Why screw up classic stories just to make this stupid new character fit? A massive retcon like Deadly Genesis may not be to everyone’s liking but the concept was at least interesting. What does Romulus add? Way did all this heavy lifting to get him in there, and for what? Writers don’t even acknowledge he exists since then. I understand that clever ideas sometimes backfire, but who in their right mind thought any of this garbage was a clever idea?

    It’s beyond me how ideas like this get approved in the first place.

  4. Allan M says:

    I would say that the Romulus storyline had absolutely no redeeming qualities, but it did result in Paul writing the following about Wolverine #75, the end of the arc that introduced Romulus:

    “This is trivia.  These are points of detail, of interest only to the sort of nitpicker who knows the difference between a cat and a sasquatch.  This is America, goddamit, and if our children leave school knowing what a cat is, they’ve been reading too many books and playing too little football.  What are you, some sort of difference-between-a-cat-and-a-sasquatch-knowing nancy boy?  Such considerations are beneath Jeph Loeb, for he is thinking of the bigger picture.  To the true maestro, the cat and the sasquatch are as one.”

  5. Chris V says:

    I would love, someday, to see a writer write a new story to retcon away the Romulus retcon.
    An immortal man, incredibly bored, latches on to Logan and makes it his goal in life to create the most convoluted and nonsensical backstory for this mutant who also seems to be immortal.
    He creates this idiotic idea about Romulus and spends his time attempting to convince Logan that Romulus actually existed.
    “What’s that? You were involved in World War II and it all seemed perfectly realistic and believable? Well, guess what? It was all some stupid plan by Romulus.”
    Would he actually be able to convince Logan of this insane conspiracy?

  6. Daniel says:

    It’s a little surreal that Marvel’s once most mysterious character has had his backstory beaten within an inch of its life. He was fine with “spent time in Japan, is old, and knows a lot of people”.

    After this, I think Paul needs to do The Complete Maggot as a pallet cleanser.

  7. Paul says:

    “Wtf was Daniel Way attempting with Romulus?”

    Broadly, he was trying to create a personification of all the various forces in Wolverine’s past that had messed with his mind, in order that Wolverine would have someone to confront and defeat. But in order to make Romulus a unifying figure throughout all of Wolverine’s history – which by that point was already both convoluted and hazy, especially after the Larry Hama run – you have to thread him into all sorts of unlikely scenarios over a very long period.

    In the absence of a clear motive for him to do any of that, the solution winds up being worse than the initial problem. The bottom line is that Romulus was intended to be an arch enemy for Wolverine, and aside from one more Jeph Loeb story, nobody has ever used him again. That speaks volumes about what writers and editors think of Wolverine: Origins, unfortunately.

  8. Col_Fury says:

    Honestly, the only origin story Wolverine ever really needed was Barry Windsor-Smith’s Weapon X story from Marvel Comics Presents.

    He’s a long-lived character that any creator could insert period pieces into his backstory that you can’t do with say, Spider-Man or whomever. Fun little bits of “Here’s Wolverine in WWII!” “Here’s how Wolverine knows Nick Fury!” “The Spanish Civil War? Yep, Wolverine was there!” etc. That’s fun, if used relatively sparingly. But tying it all together in some grand scheme is silly.

    Did we really need to know when/where Wolverine was born? eh, I guess (that only happened because of the movies. Quesada has said Origin only happened because he didn’t want the movies to beat the comics to the punch, and then the movies ignored Origin anyway).

    But How He Got The Metal Bones was important. That’s when he turned from “long-lived mystery guy” into “Wolverine,” with maybe some business of how he was rehabilitated, leading into his first appearance. That’s the juicy stuff.

    Tinkering with the “long-lived mystery guy’s” life and giving him an arch-villain responsible for it all? No, we didn’t need that. BUT! Daniel Way found a way to make that odd Sam Keith Janet/Cyber story work, which makes me happy. 🙂

  9. Luis Dantas says:

    The one Wolverine story that we ever needed was 1979’s “Uncanny X-Men” #126-#127. I honestly never missed Wolverine since. Seeing him meeting someone way above his punching level (Proteus) and fighting against his own emotional immaturity was exciting. What came later? Not so much.

    Still, he has quite a following. Marvel can hardly be expected to stop publishing Wolverine stories when people keep buying them.

    I am not well versed on Wolverine: Origins and obviously am not likely to be part of the target market, but it seems to me that Daniel Way felt the need to have some sort of underlying story linking the scattershot yet recurring plots that Wolverine had been going though his past.

    Not an unreasonable take, but it seems to have amounted to choosing an unnecessary, overcomplicated and unconvincing deep conspiracy tale that attempted to make Romulus the Joker to Wolverine’s Batman when the alternative was to churn more of the same of the previous 25 years or so: sparse stories that do not really have much to say.

    No idea if it was the right call, but at least he tried something that might conceivably work.

    Still, that was attempting a Miller, and by that point Wolverine was much too commercially appealling already his attempt to have much of a chance. “Origins” was published not too long after the third X-Men movie and lasted until after the first solo Wolverine movie. Casual conversations about the character would unavoidably refer to the movies, not to the Romulus stories – which, apparently, are not that well liked even in the target demographic.

  10. Daibhid Ceannaideach says:

    @Col_Fury: Quesada has said Origin only happened because he didn’t want the movies to beat the comics to the punch, and then the movies ignored Origin anyway

    Did they? It’s been a while, but ISTR the first section of X-Men: Origins: Wolverine being a stripped-down version of Origin with no Rose and Young Sabretooth in place of Dog (which at the time, many people kind of thought was the case anyway).

  11. Jerry Ray says:

    I’m with the crowd that thinks that all of this stuff (the Hama stuff, the Way stuff, and all the random garbage page fillers by nobodies) just makes Wolverine worse as a character. The character was probably at his peak around Claremont/Byrne and Claremont/Miller, and I’m not sure much of lasting value or quality has been added since then.

  12. VoodooBen says:

    I genuinely believe the single panel flashback to WWII in last week’s WOLVERINE was a nod to the opening of X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, which many consider the only “good” part of that film. Otherwise, as Paul states, theres literally no reason for Sabretooth to be there.

  13. Paul says:

    Well, they’re both associated with Romulus at around that time, so there’s no particular reason why they *shouldn’t* be on missions together. It’s not been shown before, but really it’d be more surprising if they hadn’t had any contact during World War II.

  14. Daniel says:

    I always found it hilarious that Wolverine fought in all the wars. It was made funnier in the opening scenes of the movie because it was a rapid fire montage of the Revolution onward. Like, wasn’t he ever just like, nah brah, gonna sit this one out.

    Also, did we ever see Wolverine start to wonder why he was living so long?

  15. Abraham says:

    One thing that’s always confused me about Wolverine Origins is that the series began before Jeph Loeb’s “Evolution” story in the main Wolverine title, which is the story that introduced Romulus.

    So is it that Way’s series gestured toward a villain manipulating everything in Wolverine’s life…but had no villain in mind until Loeb introduced Romulus?

    Or is it more likely Way planned Romulus with Loeb, but couldn’t make use of him until Evolution was published, having been delayed by the pace of the artist, something like that?

    And despite all the work Way did with Romulus, Loeb comes in two years after the series ends and retcons everything again?

  16. Col_Fury says:

    re: Daibhid Ceannaideach
    I just re-watched the beginning of X-Men Origins: Wolverine and yeah, it’s basically a three minute version of the end of Origin… 50 years too early and with added Sabretooth. And for some reason, Wolverine and Sabretooth fought in the American Civil War.

    I completely forgot John Wraith was in the movie. I was actually surprised by that twice. 🙂

  17. Col_Fury says:

    re: Daniel
    I don’t think so, no. But that would be a fun story, I think.

    But then, with Wolverine apparently getting his memory wiped every decade or so thanks to Romulus, would he remember when he was born / how old he actually is?

  18. Luis Dantas says:

    @Abraham: I have never even read a single story involving Romulus, but it seems to me that Jeph Loeb _may_ have retconned or at least de-emphasized Romulus out of Wolverine’s past, if for no other reason because that seemed necessary at the time in order to protect Wolverine’s continued commercial viability.

    If he did (I am only guessing, after all) that may well have been the right call. People do not seem to miss Romulus very much.

  19. Krzysiek Ceran says:

    There’s nothing to miss, really.

    It reminds me of a bit in Ultimate X-Men – I believe it was still in the Millar run – when Ultimate Sabretooth shows up – with four adamantium claws in each hand and with adamantium-tipped teeth as well, because that makes him so much more badass than Wolverine with his paltry three claws per hand and no metal teeth at all – and it’s obviously meant as a send-up of the character, or the general concept of such villains, since everyone still treats him as a joke and Wolverine disposed of him easily.

    Romulus was basically that, but meant to be serious. And that’s just his design and characterization, without going into the botomless retconning involved.

    Maybe there’s a way to fix the character and make him interesting, but honestly… I don’t see how it could be worth the effort.

  20. Dimitri says:

    @Daniel

    In the “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” movie, the implication of that war montage, which is later spelled out by Sabretooth, is that they both found culturally appropriate outlets to indulge their savage natures, and history never seemed to run out of such outlets. I assume that’s Logan’s motivation in the comics as well.

    Which brings us to my main issue with Romulus. I find it more compelling if Logan’s past is full of violence and tragedy because he consistently made poor life decisions. That makes his joining the X-Men more significant, as the team saves him from his own tortured existence by teaching him the value of acceptance (both of the self and of others). That’s a quintessentially X-Men story.

    Say what you will about the “Origins” mini-series (I personally don’t care for them), they at least reinforce this notion and provide an explanation (dare I say origin) as to why Logan might struggle with self-acceptance.

    But add Romulus into the mix, and Logan loses all agency and responsibility for how his life has gone. As such, we go from a story of personal growth, where the X-Men’s teachings of compassion play a pivotal role, to a conspiracy yarn where Romulus keeps messing with this unknowing victim and then takes an inexplicable break just in time for Xavier to swoop in and push his own, more positive agenda onto Logan. Bleh.

    In other words, Romulus isn’t just a bad solution. He’s a bad solution to something that wasn’t a problem in the first place. I really didn’t see all these disparate adventures from Logan’s past as plot holes. To me, they added to the myth of a man in desperate need of focus until he found the X-Men.

  21. Andrew says:

    The Romulus Saga is fucking stupid, like much of Daniel Way’s entire Wolverine thing.

    That Mark Millar issue with the concentration camp is a really great one-off issue that finished off his run on the series. That art is spectacular too.

    As for the Ultimate X-men Sabertooth bit with the four claws, I’ve always found that hilarious and such an obvious piece of overcompensation on his part. Despite its rampant cynicism and “ooh let’s be edgy”, I’ve still got a soft spot for Mark Millar’s Ultimate X-men. Morrison’s New X-men was the star of that period, but Ultimate X-men was always fun. The Ultimates was a better book but Ultimate X-men wasn’t too bad.
