Marvel Legacy #1 has been promoted at featuring the return of a big name character at Marvel Comics, someone who has been gone a while. There were plenty of suspects. Phoenix Jean Grey has already been announced at returning, and a version of her has been running around in the current Jean Grey comic. Charles Xavier has been reappearing on the astral plane in Astonishing X-Men. It has been expected that Tony Stark will be waking from his coma. Classic Captain America has taken back the shield. And the Death Of Jane Foster does tease a return of Thor Odinson to pick up the hammer.
But who is left?
This week sees the release of Marvel Legacy #1. And spoilers abound, Here is an image that has been shared by Bleeding Cool that may give the game away.
This is so much of a spoiler that it is not being published on the front page of Bleeding Cool. It is not being tweeted out or posted to Facebook. In fact, the only possible way you could have found it is by searching for it — or from a link by someone who searched for it. If you don’t want this spoiler then a) wonder why you came here b) go somewhere else for two days and c) turn off your social media until then.
UPDATE: Looks like someone had a Rich Twitch as Marvel have suddenly chosen to let Comic Book run a pre-arranged interview
Because the return ain’t on the cover….
Some of you may recall when Wolverine took a bit of a tumble.
As in, going the full Han Solo, losing his healing factor, getting himself beaten up badly, then getting encased in adamantium, supposedly killing him. It all happened in The Death Of Wolverine by Charles Soule and Steve McNiven. As he got in quite a but of mess and didn;t use the healing factor vial on himself preferring to save another.
Until the inevitable happened and the adamantium cooled.
You know he’s missed a lot since he’s been under, hasn’t he? It could be just like Captain America. Except of course he’s missed out Cap being a nazi, too. Lots to talk about…
Yes, Logan is back from the dead,” Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso tells ComicBook.com. “After three years of a Logan-free Marvel Universe, Logan is back, claws popped and ready for action. How he came back, why he came back, and just how he came into possession of that Infinity Stone are part of a fascinating story that’s going to unveil soon, and in some unusual places.”
Marvel Legacy #1 is published on Wednesday.
