It’s Marvel solicit time again, which means it’s time for us to scour Marvel’s solicits (which you can read in full here) and break out anything of interest into its own article in an attempt to achieve total click optimization so that our spirits can ascend to another plane of reality!
Listed near the top of Marvel’s November solicitations is Avengers #700 (or Avengers #10 if you’re some kind of deviant who prefers the reboot numbers over the Legacy ones). It’s an oversized anniversary issue, weighing in at 64 pages like an old school Marvel annual and relieving your wallet of six dollars. And it features quite a few bullet points, but perhaps the most interesting is the following:
A key revelation concerning the resurrection of Wolverine!
Of course, Marvel readers hoping to learn about Wolverine’s resurrection have had a difficult time of late. After first appearing in Marvel Legacy #1, Wolverine began popping up in pointless X-tra credit scenes at the end of completely unrelated comics. Then we got the Hunt for Wolverine event, with two one-shots and four four-issue mini-series. But as it turns out, Wolverine isn’t actually coming back in any of those, and we’ll have to wait for the Return of Wolverine mini-series for Logan to really be back (except for Old Man Logan, who is himself dying to start the cycle anew in the 12-issue Dead Man Logan series, also launching in November). And now, it seems, you’ll need to buy a six dollar Avengers comic if you want the whole story.
Well, nobody ever said being a Wolverine fan was easy. And it shouldn’t be, because he’s really the worst character. #TeamCyclopsForever!
Oh, and there’s a George Perez cover as well, though it’ll be hard-pressed to top the Dancing Thanos one.

THE EARTH’S MOST HATED HEROES?!
After 700 issues of saving the world, you’d think the Avengers would be due some celebration.

And that’s not to mention the shocking surprise the U.S. government has in store for our heroes. Plus: The all-new Agents of Wakanda! The mystery of the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC deepens!
