X-Men: Soul of the Samurai [MUL???]Defeat...
It is a bitter fruit to taste...
But all the more bitter if it makes you loose all appetite for battle.
And what is a warrior who has lost his will to fight?
Exactly... he is nothing.
After facing his ancient nemesis in battle, Wolverine finds a worth foe in Silver Samurai.
In the end though, despite all the wounds inflicted on him, Wolverine prevails.
Permanently disarming the Master Swordsman by cutting of a large portion of his lower arm.
Kenuichio Harada, also known as the Silver Samurai can no longer serve the state of Japan. Feeling ashamed and useless he has retired from public life and now lives secluded in deep meditation.
It is then that two women step forth. One is a superhero, the other a supervillainess.
Each needs his aide, each will try to convince him to pick up the sword once more.
At one side there is Viper, also known as Madame Hydra. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madame_Hydra
She is the leader of the terrorist organisation Hydra and the former mistress and lover of the mutant Samurai. Once more she will try to recruit Harada and gain his affections and loyalty.
Besides her delightful self she brings a new teleportation ring and a cybernetic replacement for what he has lost.
The other person that will find him is either Psylocke or another heroine who requires his aid and will attempt to rekindle his warrior's spirit. Where Viper focusses on giving back what he lost and arousing his ambitions and desire for martial perfection, the heroine will focus on something else entirely... honor, virtue and duty.
Harada has been a villain, a neutral and a hero in the past. It's up to him to choose his path unless someone else will attempt to make the choice for him?
Either way the future of Japan and more is possibly at stake.
