Can't wait

Hooray Wolverine is dying...... Boooooo dumb ass 90's cover......

Posted by bladewolf

It'd be funny if Wolverine doesn't die in this event, but instead his persona as "Wolverine" dies. It ends with Logan settling down to be a gardener.

Posted by ravisher

stay dead for 2 years

Charles Soule? Wolverine? A guy with a healing factor dies? SOLD

@bladewolf:

Maybe if it was written by M Night Shyamalan

@papinacho:

LOL who said Marvel doesn't do gimmicks? Both companies do gimmicks except when Marvel does a gimmick it's actually a gimmick while DC will be like " BATMAN DIES!.....for a panel" While Wolverine will probbably be dead for atleast half a year maybe a whole year. Also last time i check they didn't reboot their entire universe,timeline,lore and just creat a new universe filled with mediocrity.

Uh, I think you mean sweet-ass 90's cover

But Marvel characters never die lol.

Until they bring him back a month and a half later. There is really no reason to take the death of a comic charcter seriously at this point, the writers don't have the balls to actually "kill off" a character. People are gonna be pissed off, then they'll "shockingly" bring him back, and then a year later no one will even care it happened in the first place. These kinds of things are so tedious and annoying.

The only thing that would make this not stupid is if it allowed marvel to introduce James Hudson Jr. in 616.

"shake the foundation of the Marvel Universe" really ? They used that line for Age of Ultron ,Spider island,Fear Itself ,Shattered ,Infinity etc. I'll definitely pick up this issue but It seems like the marvel universe can't be shoot at all . LOL

Posted by hyenascar

I would buy this if he really died and didn't come back. Otherwise meaningless. Death is worthless in comics.

A very astute observation. When are your left hand?

Posted by Maddpanda531

I can't wait for them to announce "The Superior Wolverine", where the ghost of Doctor Octopus takes over the body of Wolverine and tries to be a hero.

Go back to the Pre-Crisis days?! Hell naw papi. Back then, you had Wonder Woman lassoing stars out of their gravity wells just for fun, and Superman obliterating whole galaxies with a sneeze.

Naw, playa. The Crisis happened for a reason!

Posted by lmothander

It would be cool if he really died and then there was a battle among a bunch or people to take over the mantle of Wolverine. X-23, Daken, Deadpool, Any past present or future Weapon "x", Dark beast... Wolverine plays an important part in that universe... he is a symbol that many would want to take on.

Yeah, I think Papi meant Post-Crisis but his mocking got the best of him.

@arturocalakayvee: @heraldofganthet: Filthy casuals!! I meant pre-crisis. Post-crisis is too grim/dark/gritty with it's drunk driving Green Lantern and far too convoluted with it's pocket universe Legion of Super Heroes/Superboy retcons, plus it destroys everything the DC Universe is about!! No more Multiverse!! Shake my head, shake my head.

This comes off pretty stupid. In anticipation of a character's death? This is beyond a gimmick. Insulting too.
