Where Is Wolverine? And What Is His Startling Secret?

His return to the Marvel Universe was just the beginning, and the Infinity Stone he holds could change everything. Now, the questions begin: Why was he searching for the Infinity Stone? How did he escape his adamantium prison? Where is Wolverine, and what is he hiding?

The answers will begin to unravel in 2018, but fans will catch glimpses of their favorite mutant in special after-credit scenes at the end of key Marvel titles. Appearing in select issues starting in January, some of Marvel’s most acclaimed artists will tease the whereabouts of the adamantium-clawed mutant with tantalizing teaser panels – and it’s all connected!

“Fans have been speculating about Wolverine’s whereabouts since he first reappeared in MARVEL LEGACY #1—and the Marvel Universe is left just as unaware!” teased SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “So keep your eyes peeled as Canada’s favorite citizen makes his presence felt in titles all across the Marvel line! It’s all leading to something—but what?”

Captain America: Back On Ice…The Answer Will Shock You!

Once, he was a man out of time…and now he’s about to re-live that moment all over again. Following the shocking ending of CAPTAIN AMERICA #697, Steve Rogers is back on ice in CAPTAIN AMERICA #698, and it’s a brave new (and cold) world. Now, it’s up to the super soldier to assemble a new group of Howling Commandos to help him battle for this freedom.

“Everybody thought it couldn’t happen again—but it has!” teases SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “Once more, Cap is a man out of time—but the new era he finds himself in is fraught with perils, personal hardships, and challenges unlike anything the shield-slinger has ever experienced before. The lead-up to our big blow-out #700 issue starts here!”

It’s a story readers won’t want to miss, and it all begins this February with CAPTAIN AMERICA #698—on ice!

Having grown up in the 70s and 80s, I'm definitely getting a Mork & Mindy vibe -- and I don't mean that as a negative in any way! If this is indeed meant as a nod of sorts to Mork from Ork, the alien character made legendary by the great Robin Williams, with the suspenders and similar color scheme, then so much the better. It certainly has familiar elements of previous Doctors as well. After all this time, coming up with a look that stands apart -- but still calls back to what came before -- can't be an easy task. …
