Wolverine has more stories told about him than any other character, with the current exceptions of Deadpool and Jesus. As things currently stand he has two solo titles, as well as an assortment of cameo appearances and team books he sometimes pops up in whenever the writer needs a villain killed instead of arrested (whatever happened to villains getting arrested? What a startling comment on America's current justice system). However, soon Wolverine: Origins will reach it's fiftieth issue, at which point the story will conclude and we'll go on our way without ever hearing the term 'lupine' again. More interesting though is the newly-announced closure of Jason Aaron's 'Wolverine: Weapon X' series, which will be folded into a new title in July: the simply-named 'Wolverine'.
This gives the series a shiny new #1 to plaster on the front, but also means that people should find it even more simple to work out which is the main Wolverine title. Because, uh, there's only going to be one. All the storylines and current developments from Weapon X will run on into this new series, and Ron Garney will continue on the artistic front. The only difference is that now the series will feature 70-80% more Mystique. Obviously this is important as she is the greatest villain Marvel have, and her reappearance in the title comes just as Wolverine picks up a new girlfriend. Hmm. Wonder what'll happen to her? Good things, we'll wager.
The first storyarc will throw Wolverine into Hell, in a continuation of Aaron's decision to make each story a different genre: he's done horror and action and stealh stuff, now he's doing supernatural horror. Probably this means an appearance from some of the other characters Aaron's used in the past - Ghost Rider being one of the most likely choices. At the same time, it appears that spending all his time in a big glass treehouse which can teleport all around the World has opened up Aaron's view on structure, as each issue of the five-part opening story will feature a backup story as well. The back-ups will focus on different people clsoe to Logan, as they are attacked one-by-one by a mysterious company. The company, who remain mysterious, will also steal Logan's soul and throw it into Hell.
So, Wolverine will be out soon, and don't forget that he's the one with claws - not the one with the red mask. The one with the red mask is Deadpool. Jesus is easiest to recognise because he usually carries a lightsabre.
