After ‘living for over a century,’ Wolverine, one of the most famous comic characters of Marvel’s X-Men will die – and stay dead.
Marvel has announced the release of a new four-part comic series, titled Death of Wolverine, on September 3, said the press announcement on its website.
And this time, Wolverine will stay dead, hinted the series’ writer Charles Soule in a comment published on the USA Today.
The publishers have told readers to “grab a box of tissues” as “nothing will ever be the same for the clawed Canadian ever again – mostly because it’s hard to change things for a dead guy.”
“Wolverine’s been tested in the past, and he’s even come close to death on a few occasions,” the publisher said. “But, back then he had the healing factor. He’s not so lucky now.”
His demise will be the single most important X-Men event of the decade, Marvel Comics said.
“Over the years, Logan has been a warrior, a hero, a renegade, a samurai, and a teacher. Now the greatest X-Men hero will play a role he’s never played before.”
Wolverine appeared first on the X-Men comics back in 1974. He does not die in the first issue, but loses his healing ability that kept him alive for over a century, The Guardian reported.
