Who Will Come Back From Hell With Wolverine?

Take a look at the most likely to return!


Wolverine has a new book and a new story line where his soul is stuck in Hell, while his body, inhabited by a demon, plays havoc with everyone on Earth. I’ll admit, I thought the idea for the book was a little ridiculous when I first read the solicits, but after reading the first issue, I loved it. Issue three recently came out and there’s one thing most of us have noticed: There’s a lot of dead characters popping back up.
 
This begs the question, who will come back from Hell with Wolverine, if anyone? Wolverine has had a lot of his enemies, and friends die in the past and he’s gotten reacquainted with them in the past three issues, so let’s figure out who could be coming back, when they died, and the odds.
 == TEASER ==

No one comes back

Odds: 1-2    

Not to be a buzzkill, but Hellstorm AKA Son of Satan does say in issue 3, and I quote, “How do we break your boyfriend’s (Wolverine) soul out of an impenetrable super-prison designed by the devil himself? We don’t.” Does that mean that none of the other souls can come back? “If we can exorcise the demons that have possessed his body, it should open the door for his soul to climb back in.” It doesn’t mean that no one can come back, but it’s most likely. Maybe the recently dead, Omega Red and Silver Samurai, could have a chance to jump back into their bodies, but it looks as though Wolverine is the only one with a real chance since his body is still alive and kicking on Earth.
 

Sabretooth

Died: Wolverine #55 (2007) 

Odds: 1-3   

Sabretooth bit the bucket by Wolverine with the Muramasa blade after going completely feral in Simone Bianchi’s beautifully drawn run. Wolvie and Sabretooth have been rivals for a long time, and not having Sabretooth around leaves a void in a lot of the hearts of Wolverine fans. The two went at it in issue three, and it seems as though Sabretooth is still feral. If he does come back, many fans will hope that the old Sabretooth comes back and not the one that’s one braincell less than a coyote.
 

Silver Samurai

Died: Wolverine #1 (2010)

Odds: 1-4 

Harada may have died in the back-up story in issue one, but he comes back in issue three to try and give Wolverine some helpful information regarding why he is in Hell, but he’s quickly decapitated. Once enemies, Silver Samurai and Wolverine have worked together on several occasions. He’s a great character with a lot more depth than people realized, and although it was a bummer to see him die, it did add a lot to the last issue of the book, and I’m sure he’ll play another part in the story. I’d like to see both Mariko and Harada come back together creating an odd family dynamic between themselves and Logan. His odds are a tad higher than Mariko’s based on the fact he recently died.

Mariko

Died: Wolverine #57 (1992)

Odds: 1-7 

Wolverine’s fiancée and the sister of rival Silver Samurai, Mariko was poisoned and Wolverine killed her so that she wouldn’t have a slow and painful death. She is Wolverine’s one true love and we get to see her again in issue two as she’s forced to try and literally whip Logan into submission. This is character fans would really like to see come back, maybe even moreso than Sabretooth, but it’s less likely to happen. Although, it would be cool to see a Mariko/Wolverine mini-series. This one is a bit up in the air though.
 

Puck

Died: New Avengers #16 (2006)

Odds: 1-10 

Wolverine was once a member of Alpha Flight and so was Puck. They worked together on numerous occasions, but eventually Wolverine parted from the team. When the Collective showed up a few years back, he had no mercy on the team and killed everyone, including Puck, who is a fan favorite. Puck shows up in issues two and three for a bit of moral support. He lets Wolverine know that they much not break him. Puck will most likely be a key player in the rest of the book.
 

Omega Red

Died: Wolverine Origins #39 

Odds: 1-50

Omega Red died last year, which is like last month or week in comic book time, so his body could possibly still be open for his soul to jump back in. Omega Red and Wolverine battle it out in issue two, and Omega Red is disposed of quickly. He’s always been an interesting character, but I don’t think the fans are clamoring to get him back into the world of the living.
 

Everyone

Odds: 1-200

I sincerely doubt it, but it would be a cool twist. Maybe Son of Satan can make this happen.
 

Cyber

Died: Which time do you want?

Odds: 1-100,000

Cyber is a bit of a confusing character. His real body suffered a fatal heart attack, and his mind was transferred into a new body, which Daken and Wolverine left for dead in the Origins series. He popped up in one panel of issue two behind what looked like to be Xorn. I don’t think anyone is clamoring for him to come back from the dead, especially when there are many better friends and enemies down in hell right now. But, just so you know, he’s in Hell, and he’s waiting to get out.  
 
There you have it! Get your calls into Vegas to place your bets, even though the chances for no one coming back, other than Wolverine, are still pretty good. Who do you think will come back? Anyone we missed?

Sabes.

@inferiorego:   i dont think cyber is really dead.  it was established that he can go take over another body.  a possibly source is ink, who was comatose and then mysteriously awoke.

I'm banking on Sabretooth.
Posted by danhimself

I would like Sabretooth to come back...I think that if would have been alive after Dark Reign that he would have been a good choice for Luke Cage's Thunderbolts team

PUCK! That would be awesome!
 
I actually want to pick up this book now that i know he is in it.

Posted by Pacperson

Sabretooth if anyone...but i don't think anyone will come back with him

Posted by ArtisticNeedham

I could see them bringing everyone back.  Like the Spider-Man books, he has lost his cast of characters.
They revived Spider-Man because his cast had dwindled to him, MJ, and Aunt May.  Wolverine has lost Sabretooth and most of his enemies.  Why not bring them all back, then they would all share that being dead and in hell.  And like Spider-man it would, in a comic book way, make scenes and not just them coming back from the dead out of the blue.

Samurai.

SabreTooth PLEASE!!
Posted by The Sadhu

Puck and Sabretooth will come back... thats how it will end! End of story! You heard it here first!
Posted by The_Martian

Puck should come back. He rocks!

Posted by Brickabrack

What's Puck doing in Hell? I thought he was a good guy. And Mariko was in hell too? What'd she do to deserve it? Just curious. 
 
Of all those listed I want Puck back. I liked his character and was sad when he died off screen like a chump.
Posted by GothamRed

I'd say sabretooth due to fandom, or omega red to torment him, but definately not Mariko,I don't see how they go from there, and why aren't Dog or Cable options?

Posted by biggkeem89

With Daken around, there's no need for Sabes, so my money is on Silver Samurai

Posted by waruikumo

Well maybe the majors will comeback and give wolverine a rouges gallery again.  It's kinda hard though, he is the sorta guy who uh takes care of is problems. 
 
I vote Tooth.  It would be far to easy just to create new regular villains for wolverine

We all miss Sabretooth.

Posted by Mutant God

Im hoping for Samurai
Posted by Lottie_Creed

Sabes!!! ...he's missed.

Posted by rlmay3

Difficult to say, but my money's on Sabretooth. Although, I'd really like to see either Mariko or Samurai make it back.

Posted by virgin4life

Posted by Pizawle

Everyone should return.

first of all "  his soul is stuck in Hell, while his body, inhabited by a demon, plays havoc with everyone on Earth" aw you have gotta be kidding me! But hey, if it's bringing back a confirmed dead rival/friend/lover,......so we're trying to choose between a couple enemies, (one who wolverine could call brother and most probably/certainly is, another rival who is a bro in law? who, as i thought, had a mutual respect with Logan?) an ex lover, a drinking buddy,...i'd go for the chick if i HAD a say in it. To see wolverine's and Sabretooth's rivalry fresh and raw, anew, awesome. Puck's not bad....but i say leave him be. It's probably just gonna make Wolverine drink a little more. Silver Samurai, no problem. I saw Cyber possess some kid in Daken's books, and i'm not too big on seeing him OR Red, (unless everyone's coming back? :D) when's the last time they had Bloodscream in the comics? just asking.

Omega Red was the coolest villain from the 90s X-Men tv show. 
I always wanted him to crossover to be a hero. Maybe stories about rebelling against his handlers and getting the Synthesizer. But then I found out he was a pedophile...
 
They should retcon that...or Maybe they could make him like Sergeant Hatred from the Venture Brothers...

Why not just bring them all back.  Why pick one character.

I say Sabretooth.

Posted by antiterra

I may be in the minority, but I hope nobody does. I guess I'm just thoroughly fed up with comic book resurrections. There are more than enough living characters to deal with and develop, it seems lazy to fall back on the dead ones, reviving old conflicts and relationships instead of being creative and coming up with new ones. My most dreaded sure-to-be-coming event? Jean Grey's inevitable resurrection.

Great article inferiorego. This series has been a ton of fun. 

Posted by Danial79

Personally, I want Omega Red back, but in reality, I'd say Sabretooth...

Posted by Mumbles

i want all of them

Posted by Randomdude

John Wraith died in issue one. I'm assuming he's in hell because of all the Weapon X stuff he was involved in. I hope he comes back. Good but underused character.

Posted by Sebastian Dark

Sabretooth   should come back
Posted by TheAntiVillain

i would be pissed if nightcrawler came back

Posted by sifsclub

TOOTH! Definitely TOOTH!

Posted by danhimself

so I haven't seen anyone talking about it but maybe that's because everyone thinks that it's the same person....the guy in the shadows that Puck was talking to...that's Logan, Wolverine's father from the Origins mini...right???

My wish is that Silver Samurai comes back, but smart money's on Sabretooth. 
I just don't think they'd bring up so many names if they weren't going to bring back SOMEBODY.

Omega Red please

Just thought I'd help w/ a correction. Cyber's original body was eaten from the inside out.  He was locked in a room with bugs (who did that) because a group wanted his adamantium.  His mind then went to a new body, which happened to have the bum heart.

It smells like were getting Creed back.
 
I'd prefer everyone, but yeah. I SMELL Creed.

Sabretooth will return because fans demand it and he has some unfinished business with Wolvie. Here's hoping Sabes gains a few more brain cells on his way out of the fiery pits.
 
My other choice would be Puck. I would love to see him and Wolverine tag team for a bit in the realm of the living. 

Oh and by the way, did George Bush edit that article?  O.o

It has to be sabretooth he is the polar opposite of wolverine.
