In the Marvel universe being dead isn’t actually being “dead”. This is very true especially for Wolverine. He was killed back in 2014. Epic series leading up to his death was one of my favorites. So this April, when writer Charles Soule and artist David Marquez reveal the timeline of events that’ll lead to Logan’s shocking return with THE HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: ALPHA #1!
In an interview with Soule sourced by Marvel Soule recalls;
“Steve McNiven and I took on the incredible task of killing Wolverine back in 2014—it was one of my earliest projects at Marvel, and such a huge opportunity. Intimidating, tricky, all of that—but ultimately, I think we created a book (alongside [inker] Jay Leisten, [colorist] Justin Ponsor and [letterer] Chris Eliopolous) that we’re all really proud of.
There’s really only one project that could top it—being part of the story that brings Logan back! THE HUNT FOR WOLVERINE is just the opening chapters of a mystery that will reach all sorts of cool hidden corners of the Marvel Universe, and will tell a story that will hopefully have us looking at Logan in an entirely new way.
I’m really looking forward to seeing how fans start to put the pieces together, There’s a big payoff coming down the road, and all the interlocking parts of THE HUNT FOR WOLVERINE build to it. The more you read, the more clues you get. It’s really fun—especially since I have a bit of a reputation in X-continuity for knocking off beloved mutants. This time, it’s nice to be part of bringing someone back!”
I was especially excited after reading Marvel Legacy #1
I literally gasped. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I thought maybe this is just a one off thing or even a clone of Logan. Then after reading The Mighty Thor # 703 I knew….it was him.
It look like he will be popping up in different comics leading up to the epic return. So much questions. Just goes to show you that you can’t keep a good guy down. Keep it locked to Carib Gamer for more Marvel and DC news!
