  Weapon X - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Weapon X is a fictional clandestine government project in the Marvel Universe conducted by the Canadian Government's Department K (and secretly funded by the US government) which turns willing and unwilling beings into living weapons.
The third installment of Weapon X project was designed to help monitor and eliminate mutants, formed many years later by Director Malcolm Colcord, once a security guard at the first Weapon X project who became an insane mutant-hater after being disfigured by the feral Wolverine, and whom John Sublime had installed in the position.
At the time, the membership of Weapon X consisted of Sabretooth (Victor Creed of the Age of Apocalypse, the father figure of the Exiles' leader Blink), Deadpool, and Garrison Kane, later it was revealed that the team also included Wolverine, Maverick and Mesmero.

 Weapon Damage   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The damage of the weapon, which is shown in the inventory screen, is calculated from the weapon's own properties that affect Weapon Damage.
Skills that have one of these properties may either add a normal percentage bonus to total damage, or they may (1) add a physical damage bonus in total damage calculations and (2) convert all or a portion of physical damage into another damage type in the damage type conversion step.
Let's calculate the damage of an amazon with a 100-damage weapon and 200 dexterity, when she fires a level 20 Magic Arrow attack and scores a critical strike.

 Weapon X: Marrow
The Weapon X one-shots continue with Marrow, and once again the creative team of the regular series are nowhere to be found.
This time we have writer Christina Z, who's best known for her work at Top Cow, and artist Brandon Badeaux, a name which means nothing to me at all, although the work here is perfectly acceptable given the material.
Marrow has signed up with the Weapon X project in order to get her powers under control, so apparently we're all just going to pretend that the Spider-Man/Marrow one-shot from last year never happened.

 Weapon X #15 Review - Silver Bullet Comics
This issue is the prologue to the upcoming “Defection” storyline in which Chamber severs his ties to the X-Men and joins Weapon X. My main problem with this book is that all the stories are about who joins and leaves the team, but they hardly relate to what they’re supposed to do as a team.
Chamber has proven that he is eligible for Weapon X. In recent issues of Uncanny X-Men, he came back from college only to find that Husk, who he liked, but never actually dated, was now in a relationship with Angel.
His pencils went well with the Deadpool: Agent of Weapon X storyline, which was light-hearted humor, so I think he should stick with comics like that.

In WEAPON X, acclaimed writer/illustrator Barry Windsor-Smith peels back this veil of secrecy to reveal how Wolverine's skeleton became laced with an indestructible adamantium metal.

for those who don't know, the basic premise is that the weapon x program (which was behind wolverine's transformation) is being reinstated (although the goals aren't exactly clear from this book).

 The Unofficial Wolverine Chronology
Other Team X operatives are known by the code-names Vole and Wildcat; according to one account, the mutant shapechanger Mystique, under the name of Leni Zauber, also assists Team X on occasion.
Logan's Team X activities are often of quite a different nature than his previous freelance work, and thus it remains unclear if he ever encounters, or even clashes with, Nick Fury, Chang, Charlemagne, or other friends during this period.
At this time the Weapon X Program is supposedly a joint US/Canadian operation, although some evidence indicates that it is being manipulated by an outside source, apparently the same individual who chose Logan as a subject.

Weapon X, well that's a group both organizations could study a lifetime to become like, and still not scratch the surface.

A weapon like this much was too dangerous for a maverick like Sabretooth to have in his hands, so the Director made his number one priority to capture, and if necessary KILL, Sabretooth.
