And the Rest: New Hulked-Out Widow Squad

A few months back, I dubbed the gathering of non-major Wolverine appearances as ‘Week-in-Review’, but it wasn’t really a week in review. I then changed the name to the ‘Rest of the Rest’, and while more accurate, it was rather uninspired. Well, inspiration has struck from that timeless classic, ‘Gilligan’s Island’, and I now rename thee, ‘And the Rest’

New Mutants #12 (preview)
Writers: Zeb Wells
Artist: Ibraim Roberson

From Marvel: “SECOND COMING, CHAPTER THREE: Fall of a New Mutant?! The X-Men are hot on the trail of Cable and Hope and meet Bastion’s forces head-on, in the form of Bastion’s capo William Stryker and his Purifier army. Stryker’s forces score one casualty early, but who wins the battle? At the same time the New Mutants are hitting Bastion’s second-in-command, Cameron Hodge. But going up against Hodge and 100 of his soldiers is way out of their league and one of them won’t walk away from it.”

All the local stores sold out of this one, but the preview does confirm that Wolverine appears. Anyone care to share additional details?

In stores April 14, 2010.

Black Widow #1 (preview)
Writers: Marjorie Liu
Artist: Daniel Arcuna

From Marvel: “The deadly super-spy from IRON MAN 2, INVINCIBLE IRON MAN and CAPTAIN AMERICA in her own ongoing series! Natasha Romanoff is not a super hero. She’s not psychic. She doesn’t fly. And yet as the Black Widow, she manages to hold her own against a world of incredibly powerful enemies…and allies. But now someone has tried to kill Natasha…and almost succeeded. Injured gravely, almost beyond her ability to recover, Black Widow sets out to find her attacker…with no suspects and no leads. Who could be deadly enough to get the drop on Natasha? And what connections do they have to some of her closest super hero friends…? Plus, a backup detailing the deadly history of the Black Widow!”

Intriguing start to the series with Wolverine in a supporting role. Will be interesting to see how this one plays out…

Wolverine also appeared in the kids comic Super Hero Squad #4 (preview), but that’s all I have to say about that…

Finally, don’t forget (Comusiv!) to add any other Wolverine appearances from the week that I may have missed…

Facebook comments:

  1. You got all the ones I found.

  2. Most of the issue is the New Mutants fighting Hodge but Wolverine does appear with the rest of the X-Men fighting the Purifiers to save Cable and Hope who escape again. Wolverine is basically acting as field leader it seems which is interesting.

  3. I couldn’t get my hands on NM which made me sadfaced…hopefully it comes in for me this week…
