Wolverine #300 will be the beginning of the end for Jason Aaron's run on Wolverine and according to him, this will be the "biggest Wolverine story [he] has ever done." The writer who has been writing Wolverine for "as long as [he] has been writing comics" will be leaving the series, and Wolverine #300 will launch his final story arc.
Long before Wolverine went to Hell, Jason Aaron had wanted to return the character to Japan. It seems that through this next story arc, Aaron will be getting the chance to do exactly that. Wolverine #300 will also introduce a new Silver Samurai, a brand new version of the character. This new Silver Samurai will be the head of the Yoshida, and will take over over as the leader of this clan now that the original Silver Samurai is dead.== TEASER ==
A brand new, updated version of Silver Samurai won't be the only character making his return to Wolverine's life; the new story arc will also see the return of Sabretooth to Wolverine's life, as well. Sabretooth will return in a story preceding Wolverine #300 and will be explained in a story by Jeph Loeb and Simone Bianchi.
The Hand will also be an important factor in the story, according to Aaron.
Kingpin plays a big part in the issue preceding #300," Aaron states. Then the story shifts to Japan, where folks aren't necessarily happy that an overweight American has taken over The Hand. We jump around the country [Japan]," Aaron says. "It does give me a chance to throw all the stuff I love about Japanese culture and cinema into one book.
Aaron has big plans for Silver Samurai, as well. The character, according to Aaron, "has legs" and he has plans for him beyond this upcoming story arc.
