From the ashes of Death of Wolverine comes a new beginning. Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at DEATH OF WOLVERINE: THE LOGAN LEGACY #1, the first issue in a blockbuster 7-issue limited series aiming to explore the gaping hole left in the Marvel Universe following the death of one of its most prominent super heroes. Written by superstar writer Charles Soule with art by Oliver Nome, this epic first issue, setting the stage for a world without Wolverine! Each issue of Death of Wolverine: The Logan Legacy features a hot new creative team made up of some of the industry’s brightest rising stars as they explore the unique solo adventures of X-23, Sabretooth, Daken, Lady Deathstrike and Mystique!
“Think of the death of Wolverine as an inciting event, one thing that has seismic-level effects on the lives of a great deal of the Marvel Universe,” says Charles Soule in an interview with Marvel.com. “We’ll start in Death of Wolverine: The Logan Legacy by examining those effects on people close to Wolverine, but over time, we’ll range far and wide to see what sort of black hole Logan’s death actually leaves.”
With the mutant powerhouse now out of the picture, who or what will be left to pick up the pieces? Will Wolverine’s legacy be shaped by heroes who valiantly fought alongside him…or by the villains who he spent his whole life protecting the world against? The answers will be revealed this October when the Marvel Universe faces a world without Wolverine in DEATH OF WOLVERINE: THE LOGAN LEGACY #1!

THE MULTIVERSITY: THE SOCIETY OF SUPER-HEROES: CONQUERORS OF THE COUNTER-WORLD #1
Writer: Grant Morrison Artist: Chris Sprouse Publisher: DC Comics Reviewer: Optimous Douche Goddamn you, Grant Morrison! I so vehemently want to hate the fourth wall-breaking metaness that is the membrane around your multiversity cell within DC, but then you take us on this transcendent trip to Earth-20 to make us choke upon the grand dreams of the Great Generation that we have so graciously shat upon by crawling into cyberspace versus a continued grasp towards outer space. Imagine, if you will, America’s boom of prosperity and the optimism of heroes and morality simply were. Imagine that the belief in ourselves and all things always simply ending hunky dory wasn’t a generational phenomenon, but simply just was. A world where gray simply never came into style morally. Welcome to the 20th string in our world, and a new rock from the Rock of Ages on the multiversity map.

Marvel’s Agent Carter is still a little ways off but some new casting news has been announced. James D’Arcy will be playing a character familiar to those that read the comics or have just watched the movies. It looks like we’ll be seeing Edwin Jarvis on the show.
Agent Carter features Hayley Atwell reprising her role as Peggy Carter, picking up her life after the “death” of Captain America in The First Avenger. If you saw the Marvel One-Shot extra feature on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray, you saw she was on her way to starting S.H.I.E.L.D. with Howard Stark.
We also know that Tony Stark calls his home computer system J.A.R.V.I.S. Perhaps eventually we’ll discover what happened to Jarvis in the present of the Cinematic Universe. I supposed he’d be a little on the old side by now.
Agent Carter will have a mid-season premiere. What are your thoughts on Jarvis being included in the show?
A few days after my visit to Universal Studios Hollywood to see the From Dusk Till Dawn maze coming this year to the hugely popular Halloween Horror Nights, I returned for another press visit devoted to two other mazes coming to this year’s event – The Walking Dead and An American Werewolf in London.
The Walking Dead is coming back to Horror Nights for an impressive third year in a row, something that’s never occurred before – A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th and Texas Chainsaw Massacre have been a part of HHN three times each, but not in three consecutive years.
Digger Harkness – aka DC’s Captain Boomerang – is headed to Starling City for Arrow Season 3!
According to EW.com, Nick Tarabay, who played the scheming Ashur on Starz’ Spartacus, has signed on for a multi-episode arc as a villain who has both comic connections to The Flash and the Suicide Squad.
On Arrow, Harkness will be a “former A.R.G.U.S operative, highly skilled in martial arts and espionage, with a deadly thirst for vengeance against his former employers.”
James D’Arcy (Let’s Be Cops, Cloud Atlas) has landed the role of Edwin Jarvis, Howard Stark’s butler and an unexpected ally to Peggy Carter on Marvel’s Agent Carter, due on ABC this winter.
Marvel.com reports that D’Arcy’s Jarvis – originally the Stark family butler in the comics but turned into an AI program (J.A.R.V.I.S.) voiced by Paul Bettany when paired with Tony Stark in the MCU – will “help Peggy (Hayley Atwell) navigate her way through what may be her most dangerous mission yet”
