We're Getting A Female Thor… But What About A Female Wolverine?

So yesterday's article on Sabretooth replacing Wolverine during – and after – Axis, was based on reading solicitations, looking at cover images, the usual.

This isn't.

A Marvel source gets in touch to tell me that Sabretooth is, indeed, becoming the new Wolverine in the Marvel Universe.

But not for long.

Because after around six months, he too will be replaced in the role. By the Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost-created clone of Wolverine, X-23, currently appearing in All-New X-Men.

That's right folks, we have a female Loki, we're about to get a female Thor and next up, a female Wolverine.
