Soule and McNiven Present the Death of Wolverine

Marvel has teased Wolverine has “3 Months to Die,” but Entertainment Weekly has broken the news that will culminate in a four-part miniseries in September, Death of Wolverine written by Charles Soule and art by Steve McNiven. Death of Wolverine #1 hits shelves on September 3, with the series being weekly and climaxing on September 24.

While characters remaining dead in comics rarely happens, this story will have ramifications:

…but Marts says that Marvel approached this event “from a standpoint of finality, of closure.” The hero’s death will have ramifications throughout Marvel’s line. “You’re gonna be entering into a world without Wolverine. That affects not only his teammates, but also the Marvel Universe at large. We’ve got a lot of things in the works already

More details will be coming this weekend at C2E2. Bets as to how long before Wolverine returns?
