Death of Wolverine #4 The last sacrifice
After finding out the man who turned him into Weapon X, is trying to recreate him (though needed his healing factor to have the metal bond to his test subjects without killing them), he stops the adamantium injection, but gets covered in the liquid metal in the process.

    Clearly, there will never again be any more Wolverine stories. Those back issues will be worth millions!

    I find this cynicism kinda tiring to be honest

    congratulations, you've figured out how stories in a serialized medium work, you insightful free thinkers you

    I don't care that he will eventually come back, they told a good story about him dying, they'll hopefully tell some good stories about the rest of the universe reacting to his death, and eventually, probably in a few years time as Soule has said that there are currently 0 plans to do so any time soon, they'll tell what will probably be a good story about him coming back. That's more than good enough for me.

    Of course, this also feeds into the 'Marvel killing off/canceling books of characters they don't have movie rights to' conspiracy.

    I think like you said it comes down to telling good stories; bringing back Bucky allowed for years of great story to be told by Brubaker, same with killing off Cap (although Reborn wasn't as good an end cap to it as everything that preceded). I recently read the "Death of Wolverine" miniseries and besides the art wasn't very impressed, and the previews for the follow up series looks kind of 'meh' to me. The whole build up, in fact the entire latest run of "Wolverine" was incredibly sub-par although that's the fault of Cornell and not Soule. The best recent Wolverine series was Savage (besides the Jimenez arc which was a stinker) and that had no tie-in. I think the difference is Brubaker had everything planned out years in advance, with Wolverine it sounds like they really don't have any plans and just seems like an editorial edict
    Of course, this also feeds into the 'Marvel killing off/canceling books of characters they don't have movie rights to' conspiracy.

    Also, Wolverine will always equal money for Marvel regardless of film/tv rights:

    We all know he'll be back - I want to speculate as to how.
    He lost his healing factor to a Microverse virus, right? I bet he got pulled into the Microverse at the last second to be cured. Someone's gonna cut that adamantium off him later on and it'll be hollow and empty inside - dun dun dun!

    I'll put my money down on "Secret clone left over in a secret Weapon X bunker that was secretly triggered to activate when Wolverine actually truly dies for real (secret)".
    That leads to a cliffhanger showing a warehouse full of wolverine clone tubes suddenly coming online and threatening to drown the local town in short, hairy Canadians with bad attitudes and bone claws.

    nah, they'll replace him with Governor James Howlett during Secret Wars, and it'll be so popular they'll forget about the original

    Those conspiracies piss me off, given Wolverine's death is being followed up with books like Spider-Man and the X-Men, where Marvel doesn't have the film rights to either Spider-Man or the X-men, and Wolverines, a book about a group comprised of Mystique, Sabertooth, Daken, X-23, and Lady Deathstrike, among others, and I don't think Marvel has ANY of those rights. Wolverines is weekly to boot.

    We also have, for the first time ever, on-goings for Cyclops, Storm and Magneto. Nightcrawler is back, and they have Chris Clairemont writing an X-book, on top of one of their highest selling authors, Bendis, writing TWO X-books. Marvel's only all-female team book is also an X-book.

    Quite frankly, Marvel is doing an APPALLING job at destroying the X-franchise. I except better from a Disney subsidiary, quite frankly.
