The first decade of the 21st century saw writers and artists take Marvel's Wolverine in new directions, and these stories became instant classics.

Wolverine rose from obscurity to eclipse nearly every other solo hero in the Marvel Universe when it came to popularity. The '80s were his rise, the '90s cemented his reign, and the '00s showed that there was still a lot of gas left in the tank. Wolverine's stories in the '00s went in many directions, as the character was made into a bigger deal than ever before in the Marvel Universe.

For fans of the character, the '00s held some wonderful stories, ones that showed the myriad sides of the ol' Canucklehead.

10/10 Wolverine: Logan Saw The Mutant Deal With The Ghosts Of His Past

Ultimate X-Men #41, by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist David Finch, is a very different kind of Wolverine story and that's why it's among the best ever made. A teenager wakes up to an empty house. As he walks to school, he realizes something is amiss and discovers his town is empty. Wolverine shows up to talk to the kid and reveals why he's come: the teen is a mutant and Wolverine has to kill him.

There's no battle in this one, just a man and a boy lamenting the unfairness of the world. Ultimate Wolverine was a very different version of the character, but Bendis and Finch perfectly captured Wolverine's energy in this one.
