The Pull List (9/3/14): The beginning of the end for Wolverine

Posted By on Thu, Sep 4, 2014 at 9:11 AM

It’s finally here. After months of promotion, the Death of Wolverine limited series has arrived with its first issue. The four-part, weekly series has the perfect set-up: self-contained, only a month long, but still sending shockwaves throughout the entire Marvel Universe. Now, it’s just up to writer Charles Soule and artists Steve McNiven and Jay Leisten to give him a fitting end.

With a broken healing power, and other factors that Soule will reveal, we will finally see an end for the 100-year-old character, who is known primarily for his avoidance of death. Soule is a respected scribe, but he’s an interesting choice to bring an end for the character. Marvel must know something we don’t. As for McNiven, he’s a Wolvie vet, with his most popular take on the character being the Old Man Logan series, written by Mark Millar.

Sure, Marvel will drag out the character’s end for months after this series. The publisher promises a series that explores his fate’s impact, and no one really knows if he’ll stay dead (though that’s the implication). But for now, we can’t take the chance of avoiding this series, in case this is really it.
