Weapon X is one of the code-names for the X-Man Wolverine and the name of the infamous military/science unit that transformed Logan into Weapon X by giving him an adamantium skull and claws. Later incarnations of the program produced Deadpool, Maverick, X-23 (Logan’s clone now using the Wolverine code-name and headlining the Wolverine book) and more weaponized mutants.
Fans should note the teaser image shows the history of the Weapon X program and its many victims/products including Logan/Wolverine from the classic Barry Windsor-Smith story, Sauron, X-23, Deadpool and Sabretooth. During the Grant Morrison era, it was revealed Weapon X was part of an overall Weapon Plus program that created Fantomex.
In Death of Wolverine, Logan discovered a new Weapon X program was in operation.
Yes, that’s Batman and Wonder Woman from the classic television series and yes, they will meet up in a new comic book crossover in a case of “because you demanded it!”
The new year brings new books, new heroes, big crossovers and a major villain’s comeback.
