Marvel has revealed the next whereabouts of the original Wolverine, who returned in Marvel Legacy #1 - and they’re borrowing a trick from Marvel studios for it.
Wolverine will appear in a series of “after credit” scenes in some Marvel titles that, when read in sequence, will touch on Wolverine’s status quo – a la Marvel Studios’ ubiquitous “stinger” scenes.
“Fans have been speculating about Wolverine’s whereabouts since he first reappeared in Marvel Legacy #1—and the Marvel Universe is left just as unaware!” said Marvel SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort in a statement. “So keep your eyes peeled as Canada’s favorite citizen makes his presence felt in titles all across the Marvel line! It’s all leading to something—but what?”
"Mystery has always been part of Wolverine's DNA,” added senior editor Mark Paniccia. “He's one of Marvel's most interesting and popular characters. Fans are going to have a helluva ride finding out where he's been and how he came back.”
The “stingers” will appear in the following titles, starting in January, with more unnamed titles to follow:
CAPTAIN AMERICA #697
MIGHTY THOR #703
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #794
