Marvel Gives Wolverine His Own Deadly Clone Saga

Jan 23, 2023 · 25


Synopsis information and cover art for Marvel's Wolverine #32 places the titular X-Man in the middle of his own clone saga.

Revealed in Marvel's solicitations for April 2023, Wolverine #32 will place Logan in the middle of a clone saga. Cover art for the issue sees Wolverine battling a number of different versions for himself, while the issue's description sheds further light on Beast/Hank McCoy's recent villainous turn. The synopsis reads, "THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE! WOLVERINE may be the best there is at what he does…but which Wolverine is the best? BEAST’S last-ditch effort to save mutantdom involves a veritable CLONE SAGA for LOGAN! Which Wolverine will be left standing? WEAPONS OF X Part Two!"

Wolverine's Recent Struggles and Laura Kinney's New Clone

In recent issues of Wolverine and X-Force, Wolverine has come to learn that Hank has gone full-on villain after he was selected by Charles Xavier to manage Krakoa's intelligence assets and protect its inhabitants from enemies to mutantkind. When Wolverine was kidnapped and sold at a live auction, Beast purchased the right to kill his former friend and proceeded to do so in secret. Beast then interrupted Wolverine's resurrection process and hid him away from the rest of Krakoa where he can then force Logan to do his bidding.

In arecent interview with CBR, Percy touched on the primary factors that have caused Beast's personality to shift. He explained, "Threnody. Earthquakes. MGH. The Inhumans. The Legacy Virus. He's got quite the rap sheet. Now he's gone from shady to full-on midnight dark, but I'm not interested in anybody being purely "evil." I'm building upon the bedrock of the character and exploring the possibilities offered by the Krakoan era. He's the head of the mutant CIA. Xavier has given him carte blanche, zero oversight because the professor knows bad shit needs to be done when you're nation-building, and he'd rather that take place in the shadows. Beast has a utilitarian code: the greatest good for the greatest number of mutants. He's stayed true to that philosophy."

Laura Kinney/Wolverine, meanwhile, recently came face-to-face with a clone of herself in X-Men #18 (by Gerry Duggan, C.F. Villa, Matt Milla and VC's Clayton Cowles). When Laura was believed to have died in 2021's X-Men #19 after entering a time-accelerated habitat called the Vault, Krakoa resurrected Wolverine; however, X-Men #18 revealed the Laura who entered the Vault is still alive, meaning Krakoa now has two versions of the character. The older, Vault version and the younger Laura who recently joined forces with Jubilee, Dazzler and Boom-Boom in X-Terminators both agreed to stay out of one another's way in X-Men #18, with the younger version insisting she gets to keep the mantle of Wolverine.

Wolverine #32 comes from writer Benjamin Percy and artist and cover artist Juan José Ryp. Featuring variant covers by Josemaria Casanovas and Alex Ross, Wolverine #32 releases April 5, 2023, from DC.
