Marvel Announces Wolverine has "3 Months to Die!"

This June, Marvel has some big plans for Logan.

New York, NY – March 14th, 2014 – Strap in for a gut-wrenching, blood soaked tale of betrayal, vengeance and a hero’s death as 3 MONTHS TO DIE kicks off this June in WOLVERINE #8! All culminating in a grisly September finale that will have the whole world on the edge of their seat!

Friend. Teacher. X-Man. Avenger. Assassin. Hero. The man called Logan has worn many faces and lived many lives. Tortured by the horrors of his past, Logan has spent the better part of his life on a path to redemption.

But all paths eventually end. And there will be no happy ending for the Wolverine. Left without his healing factor, the invulnerable killing machine has found himself mortal for the first time in his long life. And as past sins come back to haunt him – he’ll have to pay the ultimate price.

"If the title sounds ominous, it's for a good reason," says Editor in Chief Axel Alonso. "What will be waiting for readers in September, when '3 Months to Die' is over? Let's just say, it's going to be the buzz of the comics world."

Alienated and alone with no X-Men to protect him, a killable Wolverine prepares to make his final stand. Deadly forces are closing in, and time is almost up. What will become of the Wolverine? And what does the Marvel Universe look like without him in it? Nothing lasts forever, and the beginning of the end starts this June in WOLVERINE #8!

The clock is ticking. Wolverine has 3 MONTHS TO DIE!

If they were planning on killing him why relaunch his solo title? Surely one of the half dozen titles he appears in could have been used to tell this story, like LaTour's Wolverine and the X-Men or Kyle and Yost's Amazing X-Men, which could use this kind of story to bring in a lot of new readers and make sure the book lasts longer than 12 issues.

I really don't want to post some feats from his 50+ year career that would make Batman impressed so i'll just say your dead wrong

I'm hoping that they will kill him and give us 616 Jimmy Hudson

Let's hope it will last about a year. It will be a nice change of pace not seeing his face everywhere.

That could be said about every major comic character.

Not really, do you compare Green Lantern's, Green Arrow's or Wonder Woman's panel time to Wolverine's?

In terms of popularity, I really don't know why any of those three aforementioned characters are comparable to Wolverine. They aren't marketing machines like he is. He's more comparable to other over exposed super heroes like Batman, Superman, etc.

GL and WW are major names, I mentioned them to you to understand how over exposed Wolverine is compared to the other A-listers. Yes Batman is almost as over-exposed as Wolverine and Superman to a lesser extent but the difference in these characters is that Wolverine has became a shell of a character( I can elaborate on that but i don't think it is necessary). And with the creative decisions marvel takes about him, killing him off will be a blessing to both the fans of the character and the ones that can't stand seeing his face everywhere.

I'm so angry they got picture. all these good companies and disney got it. omg. never sell your amazing product to disney. they can't be trusted to make a film.

Wonder Woman could be. Not sure why Green Lantern or Green Arrow are mentioned though..

@wolverine08: Shang Chi has superpowers now remember

Ah, I actually forgot about that. I guess that Avengers World beating actually had some pay offs for him.

It would be too easy to troll you man so this time, I'll say sorry about this. I went through the same after last year's Dying Wish and Superior Spider-Man idiocy so I feel for your loss mate. They'll bring him back though, he's in too many comics to kill permanently.

I can't do this much longer.

A depowered Wolverine should not be winning against Iron Fist and SHang Chi

If Wolverine was still okay mentally like he was other times he has lost the healing factor, he would get a strong majority over Shang Chi in a H2H fight. Shang is entirely unimpressive in terms of actual feats, and is solely hype.

I see Stegman isn't doing the art. Hope this series doesn't turn into a rotation, I like Stegman on this book.
