What is this? An ominous email from Marvel with nothing more than this simple teaser…
So what could this possibly mean? I have my theories. First of which is the return of Marvel’s most populate mutant Wolverine. It’s been well over a year sense Wolverine’s death and with a looming X-Men movie on the horizon it would make perfect sense to bring him back. This is most likely what we are seeing here with this intentionally vague tease. Another possibility considering Marvel really seems to be in love with rebooting their most popular events, is this could be teasing a return of Marvel Zombies.
If I had to choose I would put my money on Wolverine returning to the 616 but what does that mean for X-23 and Old Man Logan? I am sure we will find out soon enough. Sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think.
