When Marvel released a teaser for an All New Marvel NOW! book titled "WEAPON" yesterday, we were very excited for another, badly needed Wolverine series. Marvel's number one mutant has been in a slump lately, with his arch enemy Cyclops gaining prominence thanks to the redemptive writing of "The Great One" Brian Bendis in Uncanny X-Men, with the original X-Men team leaving Wolverine's school to live with Cyclops' team, removing Wolvie's opportunity to bang a teenage Jean Grey, and with all of his children already being dead, meaning there are no more children left for Wolverine to murder, his favorite pastime.
So the news of a new Wolverine book, especially by Kaare Andrews, was welcome; we couldn't wait to see Wolverine's flaccid penis and a bubble-butt Storm engaged in a very ugly sex scene. However, we have to admit we're baffled by some of the choices Andrews made in the design of the new series. For one thing, Wolverine appears to be clean shaven with blond hair in this book, moving away from his grizzly, dark-haired lumberjack look, and he is wearing a new costume that looks a lot like Iron Fist's. Also confusing is the fact that the book is called Iron Fist: The Living Weapon, which is an odd choice for a book about Wolverine. Frankly, it would probably make a better title for an Iron Fist book, if... wait a minute...
Sorry folks, it looks like our hopes have been dashed. Andrews is not actually writing and drawing a new Wolverine book, nor a book about Peter Parker's penis, as we speculated yesterday. Instead, it seems that Ed Brubaker, Matt Fraction, and David Aja will be returning to their acclaimed run on Iron Fist, except that the team of Brubaker, Fraction, and Aja is now calling itself Kaare Andrews. It also seems that ThanosCopter already covered this, but I felt like doing it again just to spite our uppity forum posters, who are total bitches. Seriously - go fuck yourselves, guys. :P
We're sorry for any confusion we might have caused, and we hope this clears things up.
