Marvel Announces Origin II
Back in 2001, Marvel released the six issue miniseries Origin, exploring the early life of James Howlett, better known as everyone’s favorite short, hairy Canadian, Wolverine. From what I’ve been able to find people seem to like the story. Well then do I have good news for people.
During San Diego Comic-Con Marvel announced that they’ll be going back to the past for Wolverine: Origin II, a sequel to the original miniseries which promises even more secrets to be revealed. The series is being written by Kieron Gillen and drawn by Adam Kubert, and judging from the thing below, will involve Mister Sinister in some capacity.
A few years after the events of ORIGIN finds James Howlett running with the wolves…until something unexpected brings him back into the world of men! Follow the first “X-Man” as he finds his way back to civilization and falls afoul of someone Sinister, who’s just discovering mutantkind and the horrors he can visit on them.
“When we last saw Logan at the end of Origin, he was broken—barely straddling the line between man and animal,” said series writer Kieron Gillen. “But how did he transform himself from a wild recluse and into the groomed warrior he is today? That was always been a transformation I’ve wanted to explore.”
Plus, discover the secret behind James’ greatest enemy! At some point, the mutant who will become The Wolverine must choose: is he man or is he beast?
