Marvel Returning To The Wastelands Of OLD MAN LOGAN For New Titles Focusing On Wolverine, Hawkeye, & More
Marvel Comics has revisited the Old Man Logan concept on multiple occasions, but some new series will put the spotlight not just on Wolverine, but characters like Star-Lord, Doctor Doom, and Black Widow!
Marvel Comics has announced that, this December, we will return to the post-apocalyptic Wastelands of Old Man Logan in five new stories set in a world where the villains won. All-star creators including writers Steven S. DeKnight, Ethan Sacks, Rich Douek, and Torunn Grønbekk will deliver one-shots featuring Wolverine, Hawkeye, Doctor Doom, Star-Lord, and Black Widow.
In DeKnight's effort, we pick up with Wolverine days after the conclusion of the original Old Man Logan series as he fights once again to save the people of the Wastelands who have been crushed under the heel of the Red Skull and Bruce Banner. Saving the day looks different with the Baby Hulk under his care won't be easy, and he'll wind up facing a new enemy in "Downfall."
Ethan Sacks, meanwhile, will shed some light on Hawkeye's training with Stick (the hero formerly known as Daredevil), and it sounds like we'll learn a lot more about this version of Matt Murdock.
Torunn Grønbekk focuses on Doctor Doom after he helped wipe out the heroes on the Day the Villains Won, but even as he rules his domain in the Wastelands, a greater destiny calls to him. When a mysterious power blocks his oversight of a particular region, what he discovers promises to have major consequences. As for Star-Lord, Rich Douek makes his Marvel Comics debut for a story picking up after the events of the Old Man Quill series.
Finally, DeKnight is going to introduce the Wastelanders version of Black Widow, exploring how has she survived this many decades in the Wastelands undetected and her clash with The Lizard King (who we're guessing is a vastly more powerful version of the classic Spider-Man villain).
In terms of artwork, you can look forward to seeing work from Ibrahim Moustafa, Ibraim Roberson, Julius Ohta, Brent Peeples, and Well-Bee. Check out some of their work (and Steve McNiven's teaser image featuring the four heroes) below:
