This month marks the month-long “Death of Wolverine” event in Marvel comics. Following the four weekly issues that will see Logan finally die (after his healing factor was burned out), there will be a long aftermath of mini-series showing how the Marvel Universe reacts to its most popular and bankable character being dead.
But what about Wolverine’s excellent title where he teaches his own class of new mutants at the Jean Grey School? Spider-Man will be taking over Logan’s classes.
ComicBook.com has learned that Wolverine and the X-Men will re-launch as Spider-Man and the X-Men in December:
Spider-Man will take over as the title lead in what’s currently Wolverine and the X-Men in December, ComicBook.com learned. The series will be written by Elliott Kalan, head writer for The Daily Show, and feature art by Marco Failla.
Given the job as a last request from Wolverine and tasked with a mission so secret, Spider-Man can’t even tell the other people at the School, America’s favorite non-mutant superhero isn’t exactly ingratiating himself into the community at his new place of work.
Wolverine and the X-Men has consistently been on of the more entertaining X-Men titles due to those young mutants that are the real focus of the book. Seeing them interact with Spider-Man will likely breath some new life into the book, which makes this one a relaunch to be exited for.
