Wolverine traveling through time in ‘X Lives of Wolverine’ and X Deaths of Wolverine’ in 2022

Ben Percy, Joshua Cassara, Federico Vicentini, and Adam Kubert are taking Wolverine a new adventure in 2022.

Press Release

Marvel Comics has revealed what the much-anticipated X Lives of Wolverine and X Deaths of Wolverine are about and it’s about time. No, literally it’s about Wolverine traveling through time to various points in time to prevent the death of a key figure in mutant history. Teased earlier today, Percy shared thoughts on the story as we get a glimpse at cover art by Adam Kubert.

But these lives are only one side of the story… If Wolverine’s future lies in the past, what does that mean for the present? Creators Ben Percy, Joshua Cassara, Federico Vicentini, and Adam Kubert will explore “fan-favorite eras of Wolverine’s saga are explored anew.”

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

“I’m going to make a bold statement: I set out to write the greatest Wolverine story ever told,” Percy told Entertainment Weekly in an exclusive interview. “I’m not trying to belittle previous creators when I say that. The opposite. I’m trying to honor them. When we reveal the expansive scope — and legacy elements — of the project, you’ll understand what I mean. We’re creating a definitive platform that channels all the Wolverine stories that came before, while shredding our way into a wild future.”

The official solicit for this story reads:

Logan. James Howlett. Weapon X. The mutant best known as Wolverine has lived many lives under many identities and in many places, but never before has the fate of the future been so entwined with the past! Fan-favorite eras of Wolverine’s saga are explored anew, along with never-before-seen episodes as Logan must travel to various points in time to prevent the death of a key figure in mutant history. But these lives are only one side of the story… If Wolverine’s future lies in the past, what does that mean for the present?

New York, NY— October 8, 2021 — Past and future will collide in Benjamin Percy’s X LIVES OF WOLVERINE and X DEATHS OF WOLVERINE, two interlocking new X-Men series debuting this January. In the same way Jonathan Hickman’s HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X transformed the mutant mythos in 2019, these twin series will usher in The Second Krakoan Age of X-Men, releasing on an alternate weekly schedule, starting with X LIVES OF WOLVERINE #1 on January 5. Having been the character’s chief storyteller for the past few years across media including scripted Marvel podcasts, X-FORCE, and WOLVERINE’s current ongoing series, Percy is ready to tell the next Wolverine milestone alongside Marvel Stormbreaker Joshua Cassara and kinetic artist Federico Vicentini. With covers by legendary Wolverine artist Adam Kubert, X LIVES OF WOLVERINE and X DEATHS OF WOLVERINE will kickstart the new year with bold revelations and exciting developments not just for Logan but for all of mutantkind.
