Wolverine has always been a character whose past is largely unknown, and, while there has been a lot of stories that try to fill in those spaces, it still remains patchy, to be generous. Cue Kieron Gillen’s and Adam Kubert’s new project, Wolverine: Origin II, a direct sequel to Wolverine: Origin by Paul Jenkins and Andy Kubert. Taking place a few years after the events of Origin, “Origin II #1” will follow James Howlett as he becomes more savage and runs with wolves before he find himself opposing someone (Mr.?) Sinister, who is just discovering mutantkind and the horrors he can visit on them.
Plus, we will learn secrets about James Howlett’s greatest enemy (could it be Victor “Sabertooth” Creed?) and see the man who will be Wolverine make a tough decision as he walks the fine line between man and beast.

Sins and Secrets Revealed in Wolverine: Origin II!
Witness the Mysterious Mutant’s first encounters with his greatest enemies, allies, and more!
This November, blockbuster writer Kieron Gillen and fan-favorite artist Adam Kubert peel back Wolverine’s shadowy past in a direct sequel to one of the most important Marvel tales of all time in “Wolverine: Origin II #1!”
A few years after the events of Origin finds James Howlett running with the wolves…until something unexpected brings him back into the world of men! Follow the first “X-Man” as he finds his way back to civilization and falls afoul of someone Sinister, who’s just discovering mutantkind and the horrors he can visit on them.
“When we last saw Logan at the end of Origin, he was broken—barely straddling the line between man and animal,” said series writer Kieron Gillen. “But how did he transform himself from a wild recluse and into the groomed warrior he is today? That was always been a transformation I’ve wanted to explore.”
Plus, discover the secret behind James’ greatest enemy! At some point, the mutant who will become The Wolverine must choose: is he man or is he beast?
“You don’t play it safe when it comes to Wolverine’s sketchy past,” said editor Jeanine Schaefer. “That’s why we’ve brought out the big guns—Kieron Gillen and Adam Kubert—to give Logan the superstar treatment he deserves.”
