It’s somewhat hard to believe, but heading in to October 2017, Wolverine had been “dead” since 2014’s aptly titled The Death of Wolverine. The creative team of Charles Soule and Steve McNiven followed up the “Killable” phase of Wolverine losing his mutant healing factor with a proper send-off encasing the popular character in adamantium.
For obvious reasons, this hasn’t meant Marvel has lacked any “Wolverine” in their X-Men comics. Laura Kinney, the former X-23, inherited the true mantle of Wolverine, while Old Man Logan was simultaneously thrown from the universe-meld of Secret Wars into Earth-616. Both series have actually been two of the better All-New All-Different Marvel era titles, with Laura’s run as Wolverine one of my favorite Marvel books of 2016 and 2017.
Previously: The Death of Wolverine
Inevitably, it was only a matter of time before Middle-Aged Logan returned to the fold, and he’ll be fully integrated into the Marvel Universe through the 2018 events Infinity Countdown and The Hunt for Wolverine.
