Marvel Announces Weapon X Series as Part of X-cessive X-over X-vent, ResurrXion

Will it finally be time to update that IsWolverineStillDead.com counter?

Day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year (ok you can stop now), comic book fans can't stop asking one important question: Is Wolverine Still Dead? Since comics' Grim Reaper, Mike Marts, first announced the impending death of the hypocritical, furry little runt, even before writer Charles Soule became a hero to us all by writing the killing blow, fans have been anticipating Wolverine's big, variant-cover -fueled return. Here at The Outhouse, we set up a single-purpose website for tracking this very thing: IsWolverineStillDead.com.

However, despite all odds that the "death" would last less than six months, Wolverine has been dead for a shockingly long 105 weeks, more than two years! For fans that started reading comics since Wolverine's death two years ago (haha, just kidding, there are no new comics readers), you should know that the comics landscape was much different back then. Wolverine appeared in every comic released by Marvel on a weekly basis, and his sanctimonious, hypocritical preaching about morality to characters like Cyclops was the fuel for almost daily Outhouse hatred. We've been blessed for the past two wonderful, Wolverine-free years. Sure, Marvel has still attempted to bombard readers with Wolverine by making X-23 the new Wolverine and giving her a book called All-New Wolverine, or by bringing back an alternate universe version of a future Wolverine, Old Man Logan, or by ripping off X-Men Forever by having Sabertooth fill the Wolverine role in Uncanny X-Men, or by having Deadpool replace Wolverine with fifteen ongoing solo series and line-wide guest appearances to spike sales.

Nevertheless, it wasn't "technically" the same character who was killed, so even we here at The Outhouse were forced to admit that Wolverine was still "dead," making his death the longest-lasting of the modern superhero era in a fact that we did absolutely no research to confirm. But with the latest X-Men/Inhumans: Ike Perlmutter's ErXion event, it looks like Marvel may finally be bringing back everyone's least favorite stabby Cannuck for real. Like, for realz for real.

Here's the latest teaser for a new series called Weapon X, which features images of all of the current Wolverines, as well as the original Wolverine. Will Wolverine be coming back to life? Will he join a new superhero team consisting of nothing but other Wolverines in the book we predicted years ago, Wolverine and the Wolverine-men of Wolverinetown, leading up to the long-speculated Crisis of Infinite Wolverines event?! Will Jason Aaron finally end the record-breaking two year edging streak he's been on since 2014?! Will Marvel finally get to do that icky Wolverine/Teenage Jean Grey romance they were afraid to pull the trigger on with Old Man Logan's advanced age? Will the dead adult Jean Grey also come back, and then all the Wolverines and all the Jean Greys can have a giant orgy, and no you can't be involved Jason Aaron, they're goddamn fictional characters?!

You'll have to find out when Weapon X hits stores in Spring of 2017, from the creative team of go fuck yourselves creators, Marvel doesn't need a creative team to announce a book.
