‘Return Of Wolverine’ Officially Announced By Marvel


Return of Wolverine will be the completion of Charles Soule’s trilogy of Wolverine that started in 2014 when Death of Wolverine was published and is presently running with Hunt for Wolverine.

Return of Wolverine is going to explain the mystery that is currently being tackled in the Hunt for Wolverine miniseries’ issues – Adamantium Agenda, Weapon Lost, Mystery in Madripoor, and Claws of a Killer.

“Wolverine’s body has been missing. The entire Marvel Universe has been looking for him because he’s a very important part of the Super Hero puzzle. And at long last, he will be found,” Soule said. “I thought this was a real opportunity to do things that would make him feel new and fresh in a way; if you come back from the dead, it should mean something. One of the outwardly physical manifestations of that is that now, from time to time, his claws—once they’re popped—they can heat up. They can get really hot.”

The investigations come to an end in the one-shot Hunt For Wolverine: Dead Ends.

“The four Hunt For Wolverine miniseries all follow different threads in pursuit of our pointy-fisted friend, and each comes to a conclusion with different pieces of the puzzle,” said, X-Men editor Jordan D. White at the time of the announcement of Dead Ends. “With Dead Ends, the players assemble to bring those puzzle together and see what they learned…but they might not like what they find.”

For a while, Soule has been suggesting that Hunt For Wolverine will lead to great things after he was announced to be the writer of the one-shot Hunt for Wolverine issue, in January this year.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing how fans start to put the pieces together,” Soule added. “There’s a big payoff coming down the road, and all the interlocking parts of The Hunt for Wolverine build to it. The more you read, the more clues you get. It’s really fun–especially since I have a bit of a reputation in X-continuity for knocking off beloved mutants. This time, it’s nice to be part of bringing someone back!”

Return of Wolverine #1 will be out in stores on September 19th.
