    The introduction of the world after the wide demolishing of mutants in the movie brought out an alternative universe to the one the X-Men in the Days of Future past is carrying. It shows how the world would be for Mutants after being wiped out.

    Wolverine (Logan) is old in the movie. His healing factor doesn't work as good as it used to, which makes him a weaker character. This adds a dramatic sense to the movie unlike the other Wolverine and X-Men titles. 

  • 6 It has a dramatic arc

    The dramatic arc of having an aged Wolverine and a sick Professor Xavier attempting to retire from the world makes the story even deeper. It shows a father-son relationship between Professor X and Logan, which has never been seen before.

    X-23 is an 11 year old girl with the mutant abilities of Wolverine as they were taken from his DNA. It comes as a surprise to Logan when he discovers that it is his DNA that was used on her. This forces him to take a father-daughter approach with her and try to protect her.

  • 12 It has violent fights

    The fight scenes in the movie are not on par with other superhero movies, yet they stand out because of the violence that the R-Rating allowed. The fights between Wolverine and X24 are brutal and satisfying.

    Logan ends with one of the most tragic endings in a superhero movie with the death of the Wolverine that fans grew up watching. This marks the last appearance of the Wolverine we know.
