COMICS: WOLVERINE Meets His Demise As 3 MONTHS TO DIE Begins This June

Strap in for a gut-wrenching, blood soaked tale of betrayal, vengeance and a hero’s death as "3 Months to Die" kicks off this June in Wolverine #8, all culminating in a grisly September finale that will apparently have the whole world on the edge of their seat...

Friend. Teacher. X-Man. Avenger. Assassin. Hero. The man called Logan has worn many faces and lived many lives. Tortured by the horrors of his past, Logan has spent the better part of his life on a path to redemption.

But all paths eventually end. And there will be no happy ending for the Wolverine. Left without his healing factor, the invulnerable killing machine has found himself mortal for the first time in his long life. And as past sins come back to haunt him – he’ll have to pay the ultimate price.

"If the title sounds ominous, it's for a good reason," says Editor in Chief Axel Alonso. "What will be waiting for readers in September, when '3 Months to Die' is over? Let's just say, it's going to be the buzz of the comics world."

Alienated and alone with no X-Men to protect him, a killable Wolverine prepares to make his final stand. Deadly forces are closing in, and time is almost up. What will become of the Wolverine? And what does the Marvel Universe look like without him in it? Nothing lasts forever, and the beginning of the end starts this June in WOLVERINE #8!

The clock is ticking. Wolverine has 3 MONTHS TO DIE!

[frick] off, Marvel. Just [frick]ing [frick] off.
Dmon - 3/14/2014, 2:04 PM
I heard in issue twelve he becomes a Homosexual. Which I think is great because finally a big mainstream homosexual superhero. I think Wolverine is just perfect for them.
Nivekian - 3/14/2014, 2:04 PM
Didn't they just "kill" Wolverine?

Marvel's comics division is such BS right now, bring on the HARD reboot.

Heroes for Hire
The Avengers
Fantastic Four
Ant-Man and the Wasp
Black Panther
Captain Marvel
Captain America
Captain America and the Invaders (WWII stories w/ Wolverine, Fury, The Human Torch, Bucky, Namor etc.)
The Sinister Six
Guardians of the Galaxy
Iron Man
Hawkeye/Black Widow: Secret Avengers
West Coast Avengers (Scott Lang, the Wasp, War Machine, Iron Fist, Falcon, White Tiger)
Moon Knight
Midnight Sons

Those are just off of the top of my head, but Marvel is seriously [frick]ed right now.

Most interesting thing I've seen from Wolverine is forever...
Iamthebluegoose - 3/14/2014, 2:26 PM
I hear next September they're going to kill off Marvel Comics, so we can see how the world handles it. Because people tune in to see the lack of their favorite characters.
CF12793 - 3/14/2014, 2:28 PM
I'd be way more happy if comic writers cut the BS and just told us what to expect.

"Yeah, Wolverine will die. Yeah, we'll bring him back." I mean, they're stripping away everything from the character that the fans love. They might as well just be upfront about what their plans are.
freebirdink843 - 3/14/2014, 2:30 PM
Dmon, been outta comics for a few years cuz i personally think it fell off (besides grabbing origin 2 today) but is that insert of xtreme xmen for reals?????
BATMANx - 3/14/2014, 2:36 PM
Screw you Marvel. You jerks Always kill off fan favorites. Wolverine is my number 1 Marvel Superhero.. this is BS

"Nothing lasts forever" - "Yeah, he`ll be back in about a year or half".
Dotanuki - 3/14/2014, 2:39 PM
I'm going to digress here and I hope this shows up on the main page but over at Bleeding Cool there are some major rumblings about the Fantastic Four movie totally imploding.

WeaponX93 - 3/14/2014, 2:44 PM
He'll be alive again by the time the next movie comes out
SimpleeComplex - 3/14/2014, 3:21 PM
Put this sad dog down...and then resurrect him 3 months later as the OG badass Logan.
arsonjack - 3/14/2014, 3:32 PM
Nothing lasts forever what about almost every single character in marvel. Wolverine os the most interesting character in marvel stop ruining him or give to DC.
marvel72 - 3/14/2014, 3:48 PM
he was my favorite character many moons ago,now he'd be lucky to make my top ten.
Dmon - 3/14/2014, 3:50 PM
@freebirdink843 Yes lol
Dmon - 3/14/2014, 3:57 PM
Wolverine sucks anyway. Here is the Greatest X-Man of all time:
J0RELLC00LJ - 3/14/2014, 5:08 PM
No, they'll put Magneto's mind in Wolverine's body and make him a worse prick for about a year until people hate themselves into oblivion.
HavocPrime - 3/14/2014, 5:14 PM
Marvel could do with a reboot/relaunch that DC had done but I do like the current X-Men series and want to see how that pans out
Enki - 3/14/2014, 6:25 PM
Wolverine dies. That causes his healing factor to kick in again and he is immediately resurrected.

There you go. I just spared you the three month wait for this travesty of a story.
Epicboy - 3/14/2014, 7:08 PM
Good to see iron fist go back to his old costume, really didn't like the white one.
freebirdink843 - 3/14/2014, 7:49 PM
Everybody opinion is accepted my this unbias marvelite, me personally DMON, wolverine is my favorite, but i do agree his in everything. Too much n marvel isnt really doing much in comics. He was my hero growing up in 80s n 90s. Back when he was the most badass comic character out. Once the cartoon came out, everybody loved him n that is when he started moving away from what made him special. Cyclops is badass himself. Loved him in the past few years when he became a more militant leader. I wish it was back at marvel just as much as the next man, but even with a few okay movies, im just happy to see my heros on screen now.
lucio7lopez - 3/14/2014, 8:00 PM

Hell yeah! Cyclops is THE X-MAN!
MericawithanM - 3/14/2014, 8:45 PM
marvel to the fans regarding their comics "get f---ed"
OneBadDay - 3/14/2014, 9:34 PM
@HotRodFan899 Couldn't have said it better myself.
Brady1138 - 3/14/2014, 9:56 PM
Another death...woooooooo.....
loki668 - 3/14/2014, 10:42 PM
Oh yes. A comic book death will REALLY put us "on the edge of our seats". Suuuuuure!! If you really want to surprise us, have him get his abilities back and just write good stories about him, instead of trying to gimmick your way to the cash register!
Bl00dwerK - 3/14/2014, 11:06 PM
Better to be dead than continue the way they write him now...
freebirdink843 - 3/14/2014, 11:12 PM
Amen hotrod, amen
Iamthebluegoose - 3/15/2014, 8:07 AM
Hotrod--you're absolutely right. It diminishes the character when, years down the road, the reality is that the character was originally created as [white/straight/American/male], but was "adjusted" for diversity's sake. Hopefully Marvel has enough creativity in their ranks that they can create new characters/heroes that are diverse. Piggybacking on existing popularity is lazy indeed.

As for Wolverine--here's hoping they cut him out of most everything and stick him with the same writer/artist for a long time after his resurrection. He could use some consistency these days.
TelaVizion - 3/15/2014, 9:39 AM
I like that Octo-Spidey is the one to give him the armored suit.
BeyondTheGrave - 3/15/2014, 9:52 AM
This is why I haven't read marvel since fear itself (which I never finished) they keep changing too much, keep having crossover's...and the more I read the more pissed off I got. Wolverine is one of my favorite characters and healing factor?
batman1216 - 3/15/2014, 9:54 AM
While I am sick to death of "event" comics, especially death and resurrection of iconic heroes, for Wolverine this may be a good thing. Wolverine is my 2nd favorite Marvel character and always will be, but a break from him in the comics world may be a blessing. It gets to clean up the mess that has been made of him being on every Avengers and X-Men team and refocuses him a bit. They can eventually bring him back on one X-Team and one solo book and kind of reset him as the lone wolf bad ass he was meant to be. To be honest, personally I have never been tired of the character and actually like the continued growth and development of the character into more of a leader and productive member of the X-Men, but most don't so this could work. On a side note if they ever turn Wolverine, Spider-man, Superman, Captain America and especially Batman gay, I am done with comics and comic movies forever. I am not a homophobe and have no problem with gay people or the creation of new gay characters, but established icons that I have invested a lifetime in reading and watching should not be ruined for a political statement or agenda. As a heterosexual man these are my male heroes and I am entitled to them.
SCURVYDOG619 - 3/15/2014, 11:29 AM
Or they could do what Claremont used to do whenever he wanted to revamp a character: Have him sit on the Siege Perilous and disappear for a year and return with a new take on the character...

Though the thought of Logan laying low in Asgard getting drunk and brawling alongside the Warriors Three is also a decent option....
dethpillow - 3/16/2014, 4:39 AM
I hope he gets a cape after he comes back to life. like as a reward for such a feat. he's been wanting a cape for a long time, but no one seems to care what Wolverine wants.

give the man a cape, for goodness sake.

as far as him turning gay, there's plenty of reasons why that could happen...

what if he got bonked on the head by a falling brick? and knocked out and woked up gay? people get knocked on the head all the time and wake up different, why not him? i think it'd be interesting also. i wonder how he'd first find out he had become gay.

or another way they could do it, is gradually make him gay. like first Mystique would seduce him in the form of a man. this would confuse Wolverine becuz she would smell right, but then he'd be like "what's going on here, i don't like men, but this one smells good. bub, i go with my gut bub. i yam what i yam, bub. and that's all that i yam. bub" and then he'd do it, he'd have sex with Mystique and then she'd get her baby from Battle in the Atom, that would explain it.

but then next thing you know, he'd be puzzled and turn into a bisexual. he'd wanna get to the bottom of it. and then once he got used to that, i guess why not just become gay, right? so he'd become gay. i think that would be a more organic transition than just saying... boom! you're gay. and i think something like that would go over a lot better with comic book enthusiasts.

also another way, is it could turn out that all his memories were false up until recently. that he'd always been gay, and really super gay to boot.
but then they caught him in Weapon X and brainwashed him and implanted memories to trick him he was straight. it would turn out that the nature of the whole Weapon X program was actually a sexual retraining program, and they were only funded dollars based on successful reprogramming to heterosexuality. So you could do a whole comic on all the Weapon X program guys, all being gay in their earlier lives and then see it all ruthlessly squashed out of them and have them made into the crack heterosexual assassin squad that we know them as now. and then the big twist would be that Stryker himself was gay. and it would examine why it's not good to keep a skeleton in the closet.

that would be the name... it's be called "Weapon X:Skeletons in the Closet". and it'd be a graphic novel. everyone would love that.

wow, i'm picturing it now.... it starts off with Blob (they would take that from the Origins movie, cuz otherwise, people would be confused and they'd say.... "huh? is this a comic book or this a movie? I don't understand is Blob a Weapon X or is he not? what is this?
am i standing up or sitting down?")

but then we see Blob, standing on the roof of a huge New York City apartment building, he is alone and the entire roof is desolate of humanity and the wind howls and beckons on the bitter cold around his naked ears. and it's cold and Blob is walking as tears begin jumping determinedly yet erratically down his crying face. Blob would march on with a handful of letters in his hand and he would see the roof from an even higher vantage point, as Blob slowly made his lumbering and ill advised way towards a lone post office drop box. he would finally make it there, leaving footsteps in the sticky mud behind him and the fresh snow would fall upon the outstretched and needy limbs and foliage around him like a canopy of nature's cold, stern countenance.

and Blob would howl and drop his letters in the post office collection box. and slam the little door shut. then he would shake it up and down to make sure they'd really gone in. but then in a fit of rage he would bump against it and the post office crucible box would split open like a pregnant tiger, ready to pounce with it's untold news and questions. and we would see letters and letters, just tons of letters all swirling up in a tornado almost to the sky where our point of view would be from. and the letters would scatter and then we would see Blob with a gun pointed next to his weeping and vengeful face. he would suddenly infect himself with an iv anti-mutant syringe capsule.

and we would see him losing weight rapidly and getting thinner and thinner and almost withered away into a very old man, wearing pink hot pants and a too loose t-shirt. and then ex-Blob would smile a peaceful smile as he pulled the trigger on the gun. and then we would hear a lone shot echo out, endlessly repeating in harmony. in the cold tundra air as the limp body collapsed to the mountainous chasm lurking below him, waiting to swallow up his soul.

there you go... u start it off like that, and you've got a million dollar solution to all your problems, i tell u that much. that's the way to knock it out of the park.

then some of the letters would be recovered by their recipients, and we would see Wolverine working in factory line, digging and smashing his pick axe against the hard clutch of stone in front of him, with other heterosexual men around him also chanting and humming work songs as they battered the naked ore into a more usable pulp. and the post man would walk in and say "Steady as she goes, fellas, but what's the big idea? is there a Logan Mr Howlett James here, by any chance, i have a letter addressed to him here, it looks pretty important." Wolverine would snatch it hastily out of his hand and scurry off like a malcontented Las Vegas casino floor man on his last day of union pay.and he would walk like a man, very manly and knowledgable of those other hardy men around him, joining in unison, pumping out steel on the factory floor. grinding cream in the mills of the heartland and downing their beers together in hardy ritual dart tournaments and shrimp buffet nites at the local watering hole. just salt of the earth and living by the hand of the heartland to the mouth of the man working. and with a manly swagger, Wolverine would use his claws to rip open the letter, then like a feral beast bite one end of the envelope and just rip it apart to get to the letter and shake it around in his mouth like a disused blanket and eventually spit it out like a wild bitter beast of prey spits the crumbling, anemic bones of his lunch out of his manly snout. and laughs.

and then we see him hold aloft this fateful letter sent all the way from Blob's own hand and simply reading "You guys, I'm gay, You probably are too. Maybe this will jog your memory..." and then there will be a single word scrawled out on the broad white exapanse of the letter,
the word will be "REVERIE"!! and Logan will feel a swoon and pass out. after that he wakes up gay and has to find the other members of Weapon X and either warn them, or possibly even kill them if things get too out of hand.

that would really be a good opening to a movie, i think. i could see it almost, playing out scene after scene after scene in my head.
dethpillow - 3/16/2014, 5:25 AM
There's another easy thing they could do to make Wolverine just about anything too. well, once he gets his healing factor back. because what if, as he was degenerating, some of his cells mutated? so instead of his arm growing back in white like his natural color, maybe it would come back black instead. and then eventually everything would have had to grow back, but this time the mutation would stick, and he would be black.

or especially in his brain, it could mutate his memories or his personality when he grew back to full form. maybe he could never trust his memories becuz of these memory mutations. and who knows? maybe one day he could turn gay if his head regenerated, or he could come back more interested in oceanography, or able to write great rock songs or any number of things could be different. so Wolverine is really an endless source of variations if you approach it that way. he could even come back with different mutant powers, or suddenly attracted to the Scarlet Witch.

i think it'd be cool if you had him in Hell and the devil would see how good of a worker he was and he would quickly give him a job in killing people whose time it was to die. so maybe for a year or so, there'd be a run where he was like the Angel of Death for a certain amount of time, just working off his past sins to gain redemption. and then he'd graduate to Heaven, where the same thing would happen, God would see he was such a good worker and appoint him as Heaven's Angel of Death to work off the rest of his sins.

after all that, he'd finally come back to earth and be an enlightened warrior and take up the Zen Oath of Covenant, and change his costume and some powers and work in the Marvel Universe as the The Balancer. So if someone needed to be killed, he'd show up and kill them. but it wouldn't be like murder, cuz it would be to recalibrate a messed up balance. every comic would be like an episode of Quantum Leap, or that one where Michael Landon's an arcangel. or that 70's Hulk show. Howlett would pull up to a new town and see what had to be balanced and interact with the townsfolk and figure it out. and then he'd do what needed to be done. it wouldn't always be killing, sometimes it'd be other ways of balancing.

they could call it "Wolverine:Mutated Accountant...Genetic Nomad"

or maybe instead be called "Wolverine:Hitchhike Balancer" cuz he'd always hitchhike from place to place cuz he couldn't use modern technology. not even a sink or a toilet. levers wouldn't work for him either and he couldn't use wheels or windows even. in fact, whenever he'd hitchike, the car would stop working immediately, so he'd fly into a rage and tear it up with his claws, and he'd be forced to walk until he could work up the will to humiliate himself at another attempt at hitchiking. so he'd really be walking,not hitchhiking at all, but the show's name would reflect his intended form of locomotion.

it would turn out at the end that the entire Marvel Universe had been a false memory that someone implanted into Wolverine, including the show itself... it would end in a feedback loop of fast edits of the entire of the show, blinking and breeding new patterns amongst each other until it finally popped out like a Las Vegas Casino Slot Machine as 3 Cyclops heads. and the reveal would actually be that Wolverine was a delusion that Cyclops had. like you'd see it spin and spin and then it plop down at Cyclops, then Cyclops then finally a third spinning band would plop down at Cyclops and you'd hear the jackpot bell ringing in your ear like a clarion call to arms.

and the rest of the seasons of the show would would focus entirely on Cyclops and his therapy sessions mostly. and all the other X-Men would turn out to be people who worked at the institution and also fellow inmates. it'd be a pretty good twist to finally see who everyone really was. it's name would change to "X-Men:Cyclops...One Track Mind"

But then after a few seasons of that, it would flip it on you again and show that actually the Prof X running the Xavier Institute of the Criminally Insane would unzip his face at Scott's last graduation therapy session, after he'd won a "freedom day cake" baked by the institutes own private chef...Hank McCoy.

Charles discarded flesh would be squirming around underneath him, gasping and writhing like a carpet of weird penises around the figure that inhabitated his discarded flesh. and lurking beneath would be a transsexual Jean Grey, naked and writhing... and she'd say "Game Over, Scott... hahahahahahha" and half her face would turn into this crazy pulsing shadow of Arcade and her eyes would both be Pacman guys who would do the death animation from the Pacman video game and it would make that sound effect when he dies. over and over while Arcade Jean laughed hideously over it, playing with her own nakedness and curling her tongue out laciviously at Scott who would look on horrified and in a state of shock. then it would pan down to Scott's crotch area and we would hear him scream "Noooooooo!"

next few seasons would be called "X-Men:Arcade Jean: Fire in the Hole: Do the Curtains Match the Crepes?"

Wolverine is a big wuss now and he's died a million times already. He's lost his healing factor a million times more so who cares. Cyclops has the most interesting story arc right now. Cyclops is the man, wolverine not so much.
