It sounds like a very unlikely but not entirely possible crossover series between DC Comics and Marvel Comics. Possibly honouring the late Len Wein who created the character when at Marvel and edited the comic book when at DC. But no, "Wolverine Watchmen" is something far worse, than a teased DC/Marvel crossover sequel to Doomsday Clock. Instead, it is the name of a militia plotting to start a civil war, with much visibility on social media right now.
Thirteen people have been arrested over two separate plots to allegedly kidnap Michigan's Governor Gretchen Whitmer, and to allegedly attack the State Capitol and allegedly incite a civil war. Allegedly members of a militia known as Wolverine Watchmen, the arresting authorities state the group intending to kidnap Whitmer began the operation in June, including building their own explosives. Recorded phonecalls had one member planning to storm the Capitol building in Lansing with 200 men, taking hostages including Whitmer, taking Whitmer to a secure location, where they would then try the State Government for treason, all before the November Presidential Election.
All very troubling stuff, especially in the light of Trump repeatedly calling out Whitmer. But if this depresses you, then seek solace in the online response to the name of this militia group. Now, yes, Wolverines refers to Michigan, and Watchmen is more like, "observers". But together, it does make the brain twitch.

So, Hugh Jackman isn't gonna play Wolverine in Season 2 of Watchmen?

Not to downplay the real threat of right-wing white terrorists, but the idea that a group of grown ass backwoods inbred man-children bandied together and decided to name themselves the "wolverine watchmen" is one of the more pathetically funny things I've heard today

It's as if a bunch of pre-teen comic book nerds decided to make a tree house fort in the vacant lot down the street and wrote this in chalk above the door.
I'm surprised they didn't call themselves the "Gruesome Ghouls".
