Death of Wolverine

It's the Beginning of the End in Death of Wolverine #1

Steve McNiven prepares Logan for his final battle!

He is many things to many people: a hero, a teacher and a friend. But now, the greatest X-Men hero will play a role he’s never played before!

Marvel is proud to present a stunning look inside DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1, the first issue in the blockbuster weekly event running through September! Charles Soule and Steve McNiven explore the man known as the Wolverine as he makes his final stand, and meets his untimely end.

Left without his mutant healing factor, his enemies now close in for the kill – and the Wolverine faces his greatest battle alone. A battle he will not return from. After a century of being the best there is at what he does, the day has arrived where his best will not be good enough.

With no X-Men or Avengers to help him, he’ll square off against Lady Deathstrike, Sabretooth and more of his deadliest enemies! Each one inching him one step closer to death than the last. But one foe in particular is prepared to strike the final blow. An old enemy with the deepest of ties to Wolverine’s past has returned. Lurking in the shadows, their master plan to end the Wolverine has been set in motion – and there’s no stopping it!

“The basic idea [of DEATH OF WOLVERINE], is that both Wolverine and the reader will be reflecting on Logan’s life as the story builds to the ending,” said series writer Charles Soule in an interview with Marvel.com. “We’ll get a better understanding of why this guy makes the choices he makes, and the path that led him to where we end up. Each issue is built around a different part of Wolverine’s history, in a loose way, and each has a slightly different feel; we’ve seen a lot of different versions of James Howlett over the years, everything from Patch to Weapon X, and versions of many of them will appear here.”

Each issue of DEATH OF WOLVERINE also features a special Weapon Etched Holo Foil cover treatment that leaps off comic shop shelves and must be seen to be believed!

With DEATH OF WOLVERINE poised to shake the foundations of the Marvel Universe this September, no fan can afford to miss this epic and grisly weekly event! What does the world look like without Wolverine in it? Find out when DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1 kicks off the end of an X-Man this September!

      Give it at least two years before we see James again


      I'm not sure how long Marvel will stay with the idea of a dead Wolverine, but it looks as though anything not tied to the MCU is getting a lot of cut back. I can only hope this is about a good story aka Old Man Logan and not some petty game. It is an idea I like to see explored if nothing else I'm a big fan of anything that ties to the weapon x program. 


      Well the way i see it is the only way Wolverine can die is if he loses his Healing Factor, if you see the Movie The Wolverine  his healing Factor was turned off,and if it is shut down Wolverine will DIE.


      @mrthing34 It doesn't have anything to do with MCU. It's about Wolverine bering over exposed. This is what Marvel does when a character is overexposed. They kill him for a while. Wolverine has 3 solo books in pops up in 3 x-men books and he's on 2 Avengers teams so he's in about 3 Avengers books.

      He's my favorite character but its time for break.


      @Mike111602 Wolverine lost his healing factor in the comics 10 months ago. He's been fighting without it since then. He almost dies like every issue. This has been a long time coming.
