We may be a few hours away from C2E2 officially opening but Marvel has already announced one bit of news set to come out of the convention. Wolverine is going to die.
We've seen characters die before. How will this be different?
Wolverine currently is without his healing factor in the Paul Cornell/Ryan Stegman series. This summer we'll see the 3 Months to Die storyline. This story culminates with a four-issue miniseries called DEATH OF WOLVERINE. The first issue is on sale September 3 and new issues land each week with the last on September 24.
Who is the creative team on this title?
New Marvel executive editor, Mike Marts, addresses the issue of the overuse of comic book deaths. We will see ramifications throughout the Marvel Universe.
"You’re gonna be entering into a world without Wolverine. That affects not only his teammates, but also the Marvel Universe at large. We’ve got a lot of things in the works already."
More information will be revealed Sunday at C2E2 at the Wolverine Panel at 1:15 PM CST.
