First announced back at New York Comic Con, Marvel is planning a new ongoing series for Weapon H, otherwise known as Hulkverine, the Hulk/Wolverine hybrid created during the Weapons Of Mutant Destruction crossover between Weapon X and Totally Awesome Hulk. The series will fill the perfect niche for efficiency-minded fans who are interested in both Hulks and Wolverines, but don't want to read any of the titles starring the dozen or so individual versions of those two characters.
At the time, there was no creative team attached, but Marvel has revealed in a press release that it will be writer Greg Pak and artist Corey Smith, with a cover for Weapon H #1 from Leinil Yu. The press release has the details:
The Weapon X program has done it, at the cost of their own destruction: they've completed their biggest and most dangerous experiment yet, a hybrid of Hulk and Wolverine DNA known as WEAPON H. Now, he's ready to take on the world – and he means business.
Following his debut in TOTALLY AWESOME HULK and WEAPON X'S "Weapon of Mutant Destruction" summer crossover, Marvel is excited to announce that the character will star in a new ongoing series coming in March from Totally Awesome Hulk/Weapon X writer Greg Pak and X-Men: Blue artist Cory Smith.
"Greg Pak wrote one of the biggest and most action packed Hulk stories ever in Planet Hulk…so it only made sense that he brought those same sensibilities to Weapon H," said series editor Darren Shan. "We're going to pit him against the biggest threats of the Marvel Universe that you can imagine, starting with a new kind of Wendigo! And then Cory Smith is going to multiply that times ten and smash the hell out of it with his incredible art! Whether you read his first appearance in Weapon X: The Hunt for Weapon H or not, you're going to find that we only scratched the surface of this bombastic new character!"
The comic hits stores in March.
