Wolverine Takes on Predator in New Marvel Limited Series
Marvel Comics has unleashed Predator into the comics universe and now Wolverine takes on Predator in a new limited series titled Predator VS Wolverine. The four-issue limited series will see the pop culture’s deadliest hunter looking to claim Wolverine as his trophy through a decades-spanning hunt in Marvel Comics history.
The limited series will be written by Benjamin Percy who will team up with an ensemble of artists featuring Greg Land, Andrea Di Vito, Ken Lashley, Kei Zama, plus many more.
Marvel’s description of Predator VS Wolverine reads:
THE THRILL IS THE KILL! Wolverine has lived one of the longest and most storied lives in comics history. Now witness the untold greatest battles of Logan’s life – against a Predator! One Yautja seeks the greatest prey in existence – and finds it in Weapon X.
From the blood-ridden snows of the Canadian wilderness to the sword-slinging streets of Madripoor, Wolverine and a Predator break everything in their paths on their way to the ultimate victory…or glorious death.
Percy shares that he is the writer destined to champion this story, saying:
“I’m not going to say I was born to write this crossover… but sometimes the universe reveals why you were created. I am a child of the eighties. I cannot tell you how many times I watched Predator, just as I cannot tell you how many Wolverine comics I have read, because that would be like telling you how many breaths I’ve taken or cheeseburgers I’ve eaten.
The mythologies of both are ingrained in me so deeply they might as well be strands of DNA or wisps of soul. The guns, claws, beef, and blood of both franchises have been stewing in my brain since 1987, when I read myself to sleep every night with a stack of Marvel comics and my friends and I used to play ‘Predator’ with Nerf guns in the woods and river near our neighborhood.”
“This epic hunt will span decades, as both of these giants learn and harden and grow deadlier with time. Neither will have time to bleed, but you better make time to read, because I’m putting everything I’ve got into this event, and I’m thrilled to join forces with some of the best artists in the business.”
It’s a very rare occasion that we are around to experience one of the greatest fights in pop culture. As someone who grew up with these two characters as well, it’s truly a clash of titans as we see one of the most celebrated hunters in pop culture take on one of pop culture’s most violent badasses.
There’s no David in this story as it will be two Goliaths tearing s**t down as they battle one another in a fight that will have to be contained to four issues. Hopefully, this is only the first of many encounters between these two characters. Buckle up, True Believers!
Predator VS Wolverine #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally on September 20, 2023.
