In The Vigil, Wolverine has been fighting the demon Ron Killings once per decade, every decade since the 1940s. The story, originally ostensibly in continuity though seeming less so considering the major changes made to Wolverine’s history, including getting a bunch of X-Men killed in the 90s and having a daughter (with a woman he met as a child – yuck), not to mention the fact that the stories play out in real time, not Marvel time. In any case, in Marvel Comics Presents #7, The Vigil gets to the 2000s, and since The Truth appears at some of the most terrible moments in human history, it seems natural to assume that this decade’s appearance will be at the World Trade Center attack on September 11th, 2001.
Wolverine seems to think so…
But as it turns out, that’s not it. Instead, The Truth appears in November 2008 in Mumbai, also the site of terrorist attacks which killed 174 people.
And Wolverine’s daughter is there too. Will they finally get to spend some quality family time together?
Marvel Comics Presents #7 hits stores on Wednesday.
