Charles Soule to Write "Death of Wolverine" Event, Solidifies Status as Outhouse Hero

Charles Soule to Write

Charles Soule will deliver the coup de grace to the most overused character in Marvel history.



Source: EW

Marvel announced this morning that Charles Soule and Steve McNiven will be killing off Wolverine in the aptly titled "Death of Wolverine" miniseries, which will run weekly in September.  The series will focus on Wolverine's attempt to live his life without a healing factor, with a presumably fatal outcome.  

While Wolverine will likely only be dead for a few months, Marvel has promised that the Marvel Universe will feel the effects of his death.  While no exact plans have been announced, Marvel refused to comment on a rumored fifteen issue "Funeral of Wolverine" miniseries, in which various Marvel characters pee on his grave, which almost certainly means that it's in the works.  

Reaction to the announcement has been mixed at best.  Outhouse bigwigs Christian Hoffer and Jude Terror have already begun planning a ticker-tape parade for Soule and McNiven, and have contacted several celebrities to speak at the celebration.  Actor James Marsden, Canada's new favorite son Steve Nash, and Vice President Joe Biden are all confirmed to make appearances at the event.  Meanwhile, friends and family are keeping a close eye on writer Jason Aaron, who is reportedly devestated by the development.  

Here's a look at the first cover of the event, courtesy of EW.

YES. FINALLY. I love Logan, but things have gone too far for too long.
And yeah... yeah, Aaron should be put in a straight jacket for these events... and then we just forget about him in that padded room, so he can't bullshit with stories anymore.
:-D

Death's been awfully busy recently. No wonder he hasn't been returning my calls. (can't be because he doesn't like me... nah)

If only he'd be dead for about a year.

But no. Marvel wouldn't do something, potentially, risky as that.

Why not? Peter Parker and Steve Rogers were both "dead" for close to a year. If Marvel is willing to attempt something as risky as replacing Spider-Man with Otto Octavius, then they can afford to put Wolverine on ice for just as long.

This will be an interesting event

I wonder if we'll ever find out if there's a limit to the number of books Charles Soule can write a month :roll:

True, but Wolverine's attitude and character kind of sets him apart. For the longest time, he's been the ultimate revenge fantasy: Strength, cunning, savagery, and kills his enemies with barely a second thought. Spidey doesn't kill, and Rogers, I imagine, only kills when necessary, and even then he's not thrilled about it. Part of me thinks this would play some kind of factor. Or maybe I'm just opining for no reason.

I think it'll be interesting to see how a dead Canadian brute shorter than I am would reverberate, if only because of his oversaturation over the years.

but but BUT ... what happens to Wolverine and the X-Men?!?

Maybe Marvel can rotate staff members as headmasters for each story arc

Doop and the X-Men, Storm and the X-Men, etc.

I've heard the Punisher apparently kills on occasion. Once in a while. Now and then. Though of course when he does it, it's "punishment". Personally, I'd settle for a good spanking from a spanking nun for that, and call killing revenge, but evidently his standards are a bit different... :oops:

Wolverine is the glue holding the Marvel Universe together.
Marvel will regret it when their Avengers and X-Men franchises crumble to pieces! :roll:

That wouldn't be a bad idea. I guess it is currently working for DC with Batman and _______, so a _______ and the X-Men series isn't too hard to imagine. The main thing to remember here is that there is nothing about Wolverine that would set him far enough apart from any other character and make him above dying.

I'm excited for this.

At this stage I've accepted that 'the illusion of change' is good enough for me, and is basically as good as actual change, so it'll be a fun ride to see how Wolverine dies, and how the X-Books will be without him.

Part of what made Superior Spider-Man so good was that it wasn't permanent, it was a complete story. This can be like that.

I hate the soap opera of Big 2 superhero comics. Let characters die and create new ones dammit.
