    Marvel's Ruins. Written in 95 by Warren Ellis. Set in an alternate universe where all the experiments gone wrong, ideas, etc have gone wrong and taken a real world take on what would actually happen. Story is about a cancer ridden journalist composing stories of what went wrong with their world.

    example: Wolverine's flesh is rotting off his body because of the toxicity of Adamantium

    I threw that up on WarSkrull a week or so back. That series is so fucked up.

    The Hulk part got me the most I think...
    Well, besides the imprisoned mutants...
    Or what happened to Cap...
    Or...

    Fuck it,
    The whole damn thing is just upsetting.

    That's what made me look into it.
    Hey, get back to that Wizard mag and look at Wolverine on the cover...
    Does it not look like the contrast REALLY needed to be bumped up on it?
    Shit bugs me everytime I look at it.
