Character heads “3 months to live title”
The writers at Marvel comics have decided to finally kill off one of the most popular characters of the X-Men mutant franchise.
The character, hugely popularised by Australian hunk Hugh Jackman became a stand out figure from branching out of the X-Men series. Issue 8’s “3 months to die” leaves a little tidbit for Logan’s parting screen life.
“Friend. Teacher. X-Man. Avenger. Assassin. Hero. The man called Logan has worn many faces and lived many lives. Tortured by the horrors of his past, Logan has spent the better part of his life on a path to redemption.
But all paths eventually end. And there will be no happy ending for the Wolverine. Left without his healing factor, the invulnerable killing machine has found himself mortal for the first time in his long life. And as past sins come back to haunt him – he’ll have to pay the ultimate price.”
Everything must end at some point in a narrative context. Going out on a high after several powerful movies with and without the X-Men, Wolverine has been a huge success. But this success is now reaching the end of its course and instead of milking it where it becomes resentment, its time to pack up and move on with dignity. Fans will ultimately respect the choice over time despite initial shock. Ultimately this would include a screen adaptation with a final end.
