From Marvel: “Who is the true master of the mystic arts? Well, it ain’t Doctor Strange and it ain’t Doctor Voodoo. The bad news is he’s here and he is in charge. And he is gleefully ripping this dimension apart, piece by piece, in his search for relics of power. How are the legacies of Iron Fist, Doctor Strange and Wolverine connected? Find out here in this brand new eye-popper from Bendis and Immonen! Backup feature: Another brand new oral history of the Avengers chapter by Bendis!”

Great cover. Good issue. Still not sure if Wolverine works in magic stories like this…

In other appearances, Wolverine shows up in ‘Avengers & The Infinity Gauntlet’ #1 (preview), a dreadful re-imagining of ‘Infinity Gauntlet’ and is kinda, sorta featured in Marvel Universe vs. the Punisher #2 (preview), an alternate future with zombies who aren’t called zombies…

  1. I’m curious as to how “Wolverine makes a sacrifice” as said in the previews for the upcoming New Avengers books. I think it would be really cool if that tied into Logan going to hell somehow.

  2. “I’m curious as to how “Wolverine makes a sacrifice” as said in the previews for the upcoming New Avengers books.”

    This could be a good guessing game to pass the time.

    1. As an ode to the “One More Day” scenario Wolverine sacrifices his membership to every team he’s been associated with to save the world. But within the year Wolverine finds himself back on every single one of those teams as if it never happened.

    2. Wolverine gives up drinking beer.

    3. Wolverine gives up the memories he acquired thanks to House of M (wait. That sounds a bit too plausible).

    4. Wolverine gives up fighting ninjas.

    5. Wolverine sacrifices his gruff exterior and pays Spider-man a compliment.

    6. Wolverine sacrifices his first born son (goodbye Daken).

    That’s all I’ve got for now. But I should add New Avengers was pretty good, Uncanny X-men rather meh, Marvel Universe vs. The Punisher would be better with a darker style of art to go with it’s tone (possibly painted artwork would’ve put it over the top), Avengers and the Infinity Gauntlet is just plain horrible.

  3. since one of the theories about kurt’s request being the reason as to why he is sent to hell isn’t true..then i guess wolverine’s sacrifice in the avengers might be the reason..

    though i would like it if he sacrifices daken and his book.
