At C2E2, the Wolverine panel has been talking about the character's upcoming death, a storyline we first reported on almost fifteen months ago…
The Death of Wolverine, a four-weekly comic in August by Charles Soule and Steve McNiven (giving Charles only eight or nine comics out that month) will see Wolverine facing his impending mortality. Before dying. Spoilers… and each issue will reflect a different aspect of the character's life.
And, because there's no such thing as an event without the spinoffs, "A World Without Wolverine" will crossover into other series in September, including projects by Salvadore Larocca, Kyle Higgins and James Tynion.
I'm just wondering if any X-Men character will believe it. You know what they say about the boy who cried Wolverine.
And Storm will take over the school in its diminutive headmaster's absence. Which may also tie into the ongoing Storm series by Greg Pak and Victor Ibanez that we announced a few days ago.
