5. The Gorgon
A man who works for HYDRA, and was killed by Wolverine during the ‘Enemy of the State’ storyline. Wolverine more or less lucked-out in this battle, only winning out of chance. Gorgon has since been resurrected in the pages of Jonathan Hickman’s ‘Secret Warriors’ title, but he doesn’t appear to have a soul – his soul is probably still in Hell. If Aaron wants to make things tough for Logan, than it would make a lot of sense to bring in The Gorgon to makes things difficult. Also, Gorgon appears on this cover:
4. Silver Fox
We're expecting at least one of Wolverine's exes to turn up in Hell, and it seems that Silver Fox is the most likely gal for the role. Although Itsu has a connection to Daken, and Mariko is connected to the Silver Samurai (who appears in the backup of Wolverine #1), it seems that Aaron has a fondness for the Weapon X team. Maverick has already appeared recently, and with Sabretooth never too far away and Wraith turning up in the most recent issue, Silver Fox is needed to help complete the squad. And it'll drive Wolverine INSANE to see her turn up in Hell. We've seen how Mystique is inferior to new chick on the drive Melita, now let's find out how the new gf compares to Silver Fox.
Based on the events of the ‘Road to Hell’ short story that came out this week, this seems almost certain. Yes! A writer is actually going to try and tackle the continuity of Xorn in a comic! You may remember that Xorn was the alias used by Magneto at the end of Grant Morrison’s run on ‘New X-Men’, and was killed at the end of the Planet X storyline by Wolverine, after Xorn killed Jean Grey. Magneto/Xorn has since been roughly retconned so that Magneto was never a part of the story. All along, Xorn was simply a Magneto fanatic who pretended to be Magneto pretending to be Xorn so that well anyway this is what Jason Aaron is going to be stepped into if Xorn shows up. The murderer of Jean Grey… showing up in Hell… after being murdered by Wolverine… it’s certainly got potential.
Wouldn’t it be interesting, though! Kurt Wagner got a giant hand whomped through his chest during Second Coming, and died after saving Hope Summers. Logan has understandably been devastated by the loss, so wouldn’t it be the perfect gut-punch if it turned out that the Catholic had been sent to Hell? It’s not particularly likely, however, as Aaron’s Wolverine is slowly becoming a man of faith and it wouldn’t really suit the story if he had assistance in Hell. But hey, maybe we could see him slowly descend from the sky with a harp and angel wings during Logan’s darkest hour, and punch out Satan again!
This one is guaranteed. You know how we know? Because he’s on the cover to issue #3. The last time Wolverine saw the real Sabretooth, he was looking about a head shorter. When he goes down to Hell, Logan is bound to meet up again with the notorious beclawed murderer and rapist. Will they fight? Almost certainly! Will Sabretooth be a talking head or a complete body once more? That’s up for debate. In Road to Hell Sabretooth appeared as a head alone. But could that change once Logan hits the floor of Hell proper? We’ll have to wait and see, but it’s going to be a painful wait.
