All New Wolverine's Legacy Brings The Orphans of X And Daken

Marvel have been drip feeding the information about the Marvel Legacy line-up, from comics industry changing gifs of covers, to all the first story arc titles, and now actual solicit info and creative line-ups. But issue by issue.

Well, today is the turn of All New Wolverine, which will be at issue 25 at the time.

All New Wolverine

All New Wolverine will be starting an arc called Orphans of X, as revealed to, and will see current writer Tom Taylor remain on the series, but now joined by Elektra artist Juann Cabal. And in the comic itself, Laura Kinney, the All New Wolverine, will be joined by her often villainous half-brother Daken.

In fact, according to the solicit, Daken is kind of important to the plot's direction entirely.

DAKEN, the enigmatic son of Logan, has been kidnapped and it's up to the ALL-NEW WOLVERINE to find him. But when the trail leads Laura, a genetic clone of the original Wolverine, back to the FACILITY where she was created and tortured, she will find new horrors waiting for her. Who are the ORPHANS OF X and what do they have in store for the children of Logan?

But who are the Orphans of X? Apparently, this is being kept under wraps for now, but it would certainly seem they are somehow connected to the past of the Weapon X Program. Tom Taylor says,

"We can't say much. Really. The Orphans of X are a mystery. The only thing certain is they hate Laura and her family and they clearly have great means and reach. They could well be the most formidable adversaries Laura has ever come across.

"We balance everything with big action and big character moments. But there's a large mystery hanging over all of this and there are some big shocks coming. Wolverine is about to be tested in an all-new way."
