Marvel Comics has provided CBR with an exclusive look at X Deaths of Wolverine #3, by Benjamin Percy, Federico Vicentini and Dijjo Lima. In the preview, Laura Kinney/X-23/Wolverine and Gabby Kinney/Scout prepare to investigate the mysterious version of Logan/Wolverine that appeared earlier in the series.
Like House of X and Powers of X, X Deaths of Wolverine is interconnected with X Lives of Wolverine. Together, the books are meant to start the Second Krakoan Age, which potentially means a new status quo for the X-Men. The series have seen Wolverine going back in time to save Charles Xavier/Professor X’s life from a mysterious threat, while at the same time Moira MacTaggert has been running for her life, with Raven Darkhölme/Mystique set on killing her.
At the start of X Deaths of Wolverine #3, X-23 and Scout are walking through the jungle, talking about the Children of the Vault. As they’re going, Xavier interrupts them and explains the situation with the new Wolverine, though he’s forced to hide the fact that Logan is currently on a mission to the past. Xavier requests X-23 find this new Wolverine, and then Scout volunteers her services as well. As the solicitation information for X Deaths of Wolverine #3 also teases Daken’s involvement, it’s clear that investigating this new Wolverine is going to be a family affair.
While the solicitation information for future issues of X Deaths of Wolverine and X Lives of Wolverine doesn’t spoil too much, the plot synopsis for the next issue of the former indicates that the pursuit of this new Logan will lead them to Krakoa and a major threat to Xavier’s dream. There will also be a showdown to determine the Omega Wolverine in the final issue of the series.
