You'll be able to celebrate Wolverine's death AND Canada at the same time!

He is many things to many people. Hero. Teacher. Friend. X-Man. Avenger. But above all else, he is one – Canadian! Today, Marvel is proud to unveil “Canada Variants” for all four issues of the highly-anticipated DEATH OF WOLVERINE series! Comic superstar Charles Soule & Steve McNiven explore the untimely end of the Great White North’s most well-known mutant hero. Each cover features stunning cover art gorgeously rendered by Steve McNiven and proudly displays the Maple Leaf flag of Logan’s proud home and native land of Canada.

Born in Alberta, Canada – James Howlett’s long and eventful life now comes to an end. He has been counted among the X-Men, the Avengers and Canada’s own Alpha Flight. He’s fought alongside heroes in numerous wars. He’s been the headmaster of a school for gifted youngsters. He has been the best there is at what he does for over a century. But the day has come where his best is not enough…

Left without his mutant healing factor, his enemies now close in for the kill – and the Wolverine faces his greatest battle alone. As he runs the gauntlet of his deadliest foes, be there when the once indestructible killing machine makes his final stand! What does a world without Wolverine look like? Be there when DEATH OF WOLVERINE shakes the foundations of the Marvel Universe this September!

They literally just took the original cover and replaced the background with the Canadian flag on the Tile setting for desktop backgrounds. Sorry if I'm offending people who like the repeating flag background, but that's just lazy to me.

He was born in Alberta, which makes him Canadian.

@the_impersonator: @yung_ancient_one: I was being sarcastic towards these really lazy "Canadian" covers. I know Wolvie is Canadian, but it's lazy to plaster our flag in the background and call it a day.

so...is he dead yet?

Posted by Maddpanda531

I'm not a fan of these variants...

In all honesty if they just used 1 big flag I'd be fine with it but instead they put a bunch of the same picture which looks really flamin' stupid. I aint paying the extra money for these - Swole Abe

yep, which is why as a canadian I am not buying into it. Though I can't stop canadian retailers from getting this. I would hope they are smart and not buy into this elaborate ruse

Lazy "Canadian" covers? I can't believe you just said that.

Dude, think about it. Wolverine is going to die. There's a reason, why they're putting those Canadian covers in the first place. Have you heard of Remembrance Day? (sarcastically speaking). This is the time for us to remember his death.

Posted by MatKrenz

@the_impersonator: Yeah I know what Remembrance Day is, all I wrote was that it's really lazy to copy and paste the Canadian Flag all over the background of these covers in order to call them "Canadian". If they really wanted to do something for Remembrance Day they could have commissioned a more original cover.

I'm getting these. It's just a given.
