How Wolverine Became an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. For Real!

Okay, so in Wolverine #20 (by Mark Millar, John Romita Jr. and Klaus Janson), Wolverine is captured and killed by The Hand, who are working with Hydra.

Nick Fury brings in Elektra to help S.H.I.E.L.D. out with this since she is well-acquainted with the Hand...

As it turned out, the Hand and Hydra resurrected Wolverine but brainwashed him into becoming their agent of terror...

Eventually, Wolverine is captured, but not before he helped the Hand capture, kill and brainwash Elektra and a number of other superpowered beings, including his own X-Men teammate, Northstar, leading to Hand/Hydra making their own little army of resurrected killers. Ultimately, Wolverine is captured by a bunch of heroes working together.

Wolverine is taken back into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody where they break his brainwashing. However, while they're doing this, the superhuman army attacks, led by Elektra and Northstar. Wolverine helps S.H.I.E.L.D. fight them off, but they still crash a helicarrier (it must be Tuesday). When he recovers from the crash, Wolverine announces that he is going to kill every last member of Hydra and the Hand for what they did to him...

In the next issue, he is captured by Elektra and Northstar, but he shows them the benefit of having S.H.I.E.L.D. on your side when he attacks them with a bunch of re-commissioned Sentinels!

In the end, he kills every last one of Hydra and the Hand and ends his time with S.H.I.E.L.D.
