Daken takes charge
|Daken: Dark Wolverine #4-7||With a new costume to hide his identity, Daken arrives in Madripoor to create his own empire.
Petrus, one of Tyger Tiger's associates, has been running an illegal Child slave trade under Tiger's nose, however after following the "numbers" she shuts down his operation & gets her "team" to remove anyone associated with the slave trade off the island. Tyger arranges for Sister Francis and her nuns to help the children following their freedom.
Daken meets with Tyger to discuss the Madripoor bankers cartel that runs most of the crime in the city. Daken is aware of secret ledgers which contain records of all their activity and the location of the cartel's yearly meet up. Daken works with Tyger to shut down the Cartel, however he double crosses her, stealing the ledgers for himself. Simultaneously, he kidnaps the police chief’s family and using a device he stole from the Fantastic Four, unleashes an EMP crippling the city and foments riots and general chaos.
Daken restores order through the reluctant Tyger Tiger, whom he sets up as the public face of his new organization. They trap the remaining six Madripoor crime lords in a warehouse and, after informing them that all their soldiers have been killed in an explosion at a Low Town warehouse complex, forces them to fight to the death for a place in the new regime. Madhavi, Takeshi and Kobus survive and swear loyalty in order to continue their operations utilising the police should they require troops. While they answer to Tyger Tiger, she in turn will receive instructions from Daken.
Secretly, Daken has brought Malcolm Colcord to Madripoor and funds his research. While Colcord hopes to recreate the Weapon X project, Daken intends to enhance his own powers. However, Daken soon learns that Colcord has been secretly attempting to artificially create a transferable healing factor, something not part of their agreement.
