The next big phase for Wolverine starts today, considering he only has “3 Months to Die.” As we have discovered, Wolverine has lost his healing factor and he is mortal. I have not been following Wolverine at all, so there are details that I’m not aware of at this point.

Here’s what I know, Wolverine quit the X-Men and the Jean Grey school to join S.H.I.E.L.D. to search for the crime boss, Offer. While undercover in the Offer’s gang, he was sent to Madripoor to retrieve a mysterious sphere. During the mission, Wolverine and Pinch, a member of Offer’s team, involves themselves romantically. Pinch took that sphere from Logan and was promptly captured by Sabertooth. Sabertooth wants the sphere and kidnaps Pinch’s daughter as a bargaining chip.
“3 Months to Die” follows two story lines. The first is Sabertooth and Offer both attempting to get a hold of and use the sphere and they use each other in order to get what they want. The second story finds Wolverine on Miyajima with Danny Rand (Iron Fist) and Shang-chi. They were requested by Wolverine to help him cope with his new mortality and prospects of death. An interesting story is being told as Wolverine approaches Death’s Place of Relaxation.
“Wolverine #8” is a good start to an interesting story. The issue is written well by Paul Cornell and drawn with a comic book caricatures by Kris Anka. Nice solid story and worth picking up if you’re interested to see Wolverine die in 3 months…if that, in fact, really happens.
