COMICS: Marvel Announces Four-Issue ULTIMATE WOLVERINE Limited Series
What happens when you allow a writer like Jeph Loeb to kill off a fan favourite character and half of the Ultimate Universe along with him? Why, you introduce his son who pretty much looks and acts exactly the same way of course! Next March will see the release of Ultimate Comics Wolverine from the creative team of Cullen Bunn (Fearless Defenders, Venom) and Ramon Rosanas (Marvel's Iron Man 2 Adaptation). As you can see below, legendary artist Art Adams will provide covers. Also below are comments from the writer about what he has planned for the four issue limited series.
Yes, Wolverine was one of the many casualties during the critically panned Ultimatum, but next March will see the launch of a four issue limited series featuring his son Jimmy Hudson, a.k.a. Ultimate Wolverine. Check it out!
"In terms of a great comic book story, Jimmy Hudson offers the best of both worlds. He's the son of Wolverine, so he has a pedigree and a rich history to draw upon. At the same time, though, there's quite a bit of mystery surrounding his origins. With this series, I have the chance to play those two elements--the pedigree and the mystery--off one another. Once this story is told, Jimmy will have a better understanding of where he came from and a clearer vision of where he's going. I'm also getting the chance to do some things in this mini-series that will impact the status quo of the Ultimate Universe. It's nice to know what happens in this book will have some lasting effects on the character and on the stories to be told in the future."
