FIRST LOOK: The Beginning of the End – DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1!

July 10th, 2014 by Marc Comments

He is many things to many people. A hero. A teacher. 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! Comic superstars 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,” says 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 & 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!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
