  • Extremely scarce "Bone Claw" error variant, printed without foil (some are reported to have flecks of silver foil)
  • In X-Men #25 (1993) Magneto stripped the adamantium that was fused to Logan's bones by the Weapon X Project, returning the mutant to his natural form
  • Six years later, in this anniversary issue celebrating 25 years of Wolverine, the adamantium is re-laced to his skeleton by Apocalypse, extracting it from Sabretooth and transferring it to Logan to serve as the Horseman Death
  • There is a silver foil and gold foil (2nd printing) edition to mark this historic return to Wolverine's most iconic feature which makes the irony of the error that much more intriguing
