Weapon X-Force, a New Marvel X-Team for 2018; Plus: Someone’s Gonna Die!

Posted by May 22, 2018 Comment

Looks like another Marvel title is getting a “fresh start” in August, but this time, it won’t need dual numbering. In the just-released Marvel August solicitations, Weapon X #21 teases the death of at least one team member, with Sabretooth left to save the rest of the team.

Warpath and Old Man Logan are named in the solicit, but it’s worth noting that Old Man Logan is dealing with his own issues (and potential upcoming death) in his solo book, so would Marvel be likely to kill him off in Weapon X? For that matter, would they kill a Wolverine at all without a super-mega-crossover event with a minimum of four tie-in mini-series?

It’s not looking good for ol’ Warpath, then. Or maybe someone else bites it in a last-minute swerve.

Then, in Weapon X #22, the solicit promises a “fresh start” and the debut of a brand new team: Weapon X-Force. The team will launch in the Weapon X book without a numbering change. Check out the solicits below:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
