Today, Marvel Comics revealed their full June solicitations for their comics and it comes with quite the tease for X-Men fans.
In the month of June X-men: Blue #5 and 6 covers revealed that it will feature an unannounced character who seems to have some claws coming out of his hands. The character is pixelated to not spoil the surprise but we have a pretty good idea on who's going to be revealed.
X-men: Blue features the younger version's of the original team who were taken from the past to correct the future. The team comprised of Jean Grey, Cyclops, Beast, Iceman and Angel. With long time X-Men Villain turned good guy Magneto as their mentor.
here are a few characters we think this clawed man could be;
#1. Wolverine: which is our most obvious choice but in saying that wolverine has only been gone from the Marvel Universe since 2014 and the fact that the two replacements Laura (X-23) and Old Man Logan have gotten renewed for the X-Men's RessurXion. It just doesn't seem like the right time for this Wolverine to come back.
#2. Daken: Daken is the son of wolverine and has almost identical powers as his father but with a few extra tricks up his sleeve. Daken has mostly been a villain or anti-hero mainly because he will do whatever he wants whether good or bad. Last time we saw him was in the aftermath of Death of Wolverine. We think this would be a great addition to the X-men Blue team especially with Magneto as the mentor keeping this loose canon grounded.
#3. Raze: The son of Wolverine and Mystique from an alternate dimension. He is a villain though and it seems unlikely with the color of the character we seen blurred out on the cover is not blue but who knows with this new universe.
#4. Ultimate Wolverine: the Ultimate Comics series may be done but that doesn't mean the characters are gone with it (ie. Mile Morales Spider-Man and The Maker). It wouldn't be too much of a shock if they brought the ultimate's version though this wolverine is a bit different. Son of Logan who passed away in in the Ultimate Comics, James Hudson eventually took his place. After the death of his father James discovers his heritage when kitty pride gives him a box of his fathers possessions that revealed the truth. James learned that he inherited his fathers powers but instead of having adamantium surgically grafted onto his bones James' power is that he can case his bone claws with metal at will. With a few Ultimate characters already in this universe it would makes the most sense that this would be our next wolverine.
