Bleeding Cool was right about a rumor, and this time, THE OUTHOUSE is the first to brag about it! Take that, Rich! (SPOILERS for AoU #9)

A while back, The Outhouse reported on Bleeding Cool's report that someone reported to Bleeding Cool that Marvel was going to kill off Wolverine. Turns out that, while there's been an uncharacteristic lack of official bragging, BC was proven right yesterday when Age of Ultron #9 hit comic shops:
"I told you Wolverine would be killed off, I did," said Rich Johnston, leader of Bleeding Cool and character from a Charles Dickens book. "He killed 'imself an there's still at least one Wolverine alive, possibly more, but it still counts!"
Johnston then snapped his fingers and a "little bleeder," one of the soot-covered child slaves that Johnston sends out to conventions to solicit information from unwitting creators ("Please sir, may I have another juicy gossip scoop?"), sprinted into the room and began patting Rich on the back.
"It's not like I'm going to pat meself on the back now, is it?" stated Johnston smugly. "That would be arrogance. Pip pip!"
Johston then proceeded to commit mini-suicide by stabbing his little johston through the heart with adamantium claws.
"Why did you do that?!" we asked him, horrified.
"Because I was afraid to speak when I was just a lad," he explained, grabbing a cane and a hat and breaking out into a jig, "me father gave me nose a tweak and told me I was bad. But then one day I learned a word that saved me achin’ nose. The biggest word I ever 'eard, and this is how it goes…"
We cut him off, disgusted. He sat back down at his desk and was attended to by cartoon forest animals.
"I'll send meself back in time an' stop it from 'appenin' later," Johnston shrugged. "If it didn't 'appen in timeline continuity, it didn't 'appen."
Age of Ultron #9 is in stores now. The smug grin of self-aggrandizement will be on Rich Johnston's face until at least the end of the week.
