I disagree here. What made Wolverine killing his children in Aaron's run was that it was pure shock and awe, but it had repercussions not only on Wolverine, but Daken as well since he sent his brothers and sisters to be slaughtered.

What makes Logan killing Daken in Uncanny X-Force effective is that unlike his other children, Logan recognized Daken as his son. There was no shock and awe here, it was Logan realizing that he cannot save his son. For years since his inception, Logan has been trying to save Daken, but Daken refused to be saved from the darkness. So he had no choice but to put Daken down like the dog he is.

The emotion that Aaron portrayed in his run on Wolverine was shock. This time, Remender is giving us remorse and pity for Wolverine because unlike the last time, Wolverine actually tried to save his child.
