Marvel has been teasing a character that has been absent for some time returning for Marvel's Legacy one-shot. Now Marvel is revealing who it is.

The original Wolverine is making a comeback in the pages of Marvel Legacy #1, and he's packing one of the most powerful items in the Marvel Universe, an Infinity Stone.

"Yes, Logan is back from the dead," Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso tells ComicBook.com. "After three years of a Logan-free Marvel Universe, Logan is back, claws popped and ready for action. How he came back, why he came back, and just how he came into possession of that Infinity Stone are part of a fascinating story that's going to unveil soon, and in some unusual places."

A few things:
1. Marvel just can't help but spoil things.
2. Does that mean we can finally drop Old Man Logan and stop pretending like he's the official Logan instead of one from a different universe.
3. Sooooo, Laura's out as Wolverine then?
4. This will lead to another event where it costs five bucks a piece to read right?

Five bucks each is the new standard price. This will be an event going for $6-$7.50 per issue.

Yeah I get that they're doing this to get more press but it's so annoying when they spoil these big events ahead of time. It's just a big 'fuck you' to the fans on Marvel's part even if they don't mean it that way.

Imagine if TV shows did this and Vince Gilligan released the ending of Breaking Bad online days before it aired just so he could get more publicity.

Between Old Man Logan, inverted Sabretooth, and Jimmy Hudson I haven't even had a chance to start missing Wolverine.

They'd have to retroactively remove him from all the comics I have in my home to make me start missing him, and even then I might not.

I miss him. I actively hate OML because he feels like such a regression of the character. Love me some inverted Sabertooth....but man I have been sorely missing Logan.

And I am a Cyclops fanboy.

I one hundred percent love spoilers. Mainly because they allow me to skip things that would be more disappointing if sprung on me in-story and after payment (it is one of the reasons I think creators should rely less on twists, because it is always a gamble on whether it pays off and when it doesn't it is plain infuriating) so I am fine with Marvel Spoils... As for Original Flavour Wolvie being back, how can I miss him when it seems like he was never away. I don't think anyone ever expected his death to stick, not for an instant. So this twist has no emotional pay off at all. Glad I saw the preview.

"I don't think anyone ever expected his death to stick, not for an instant."

Well yes and no. That he would return eventually is a given but at the time Marvel was set on fucking over Fox properties and salting the earth so I guessed he would stay dead for a while.

But the X-Men have been slowly coming back in prominence and Marvel has eased up a bit with them having more merchandise and even appearing in some of their games. Maybe it's a combination of Marvel realizing A.) they were cutting off their nose to spite their face and B.) the Inhumans show is a disaster and thus the Inhumans push is pointless.

A lot of it, I gather, is Perlmutter, a big source of the 'Fox has X-men so let's replace them with Inhumans' sentiment has been pushed to the side.

I am curious how "I was encased in adamantium for months" will affect Logan's mind. Storm's claustrophobia isn't mentioned much anymore, but maybe she could help him. Storm just gets jittery in enclosed spaces instead of panicking like she used to.

Just what everyone was asking for...another Wolverine to steal focus from more fun and interesting characters.

In before Tigerkaya:

I mean, we all knew Logan would be back as soon as they decided to crack open the crunchy adamantium shell and release the gooey center that would be a healed Logan or something.

In the meantime... yeah. I didn't even miss him. Especially when his spot on all the teams was filled by older, grumpier, angstier, from the future, Logan. And Laura. And inverted Sabretooth. And Jimmy-from-the-Ultimate-Universe.

Honestly, original recipe Logan is redundant at this point. It's hard to get excited for the return of someone whose spot was thoroughly filled. This isn't a case of Superman vs the Four Replacements, where they all lacked certain inherent qualities that represented the true Superman, after all.

Oh well. I wonder whose title he'll inherit/usurp, or if he just gets his own solo title to go along with the rest.

He's gonna meet Jean and they will rekindle their romance abd sit around drinking beer whilst shittalking Emma and Scott, while taking potshots at the various current events in the Marvel verse.

It's like Mystery Science Theater for mutants! Or that Robot Chicken sketch

That's what I hate about legacy heroes. At first, the idea seems good: A hero retires or dies. Another one takes his place, either a member of the family, or just someone who takes the mantle, because tradition, legacy.

Then, a couple of writers later, it's "OMG WE MISS THE ORIGINAL SOOOO MUCH!!!", so he comes back.

Now, Marvel's got Original Wolverine, time-displaced younger Wolverine, Old Man Wolverine, X23 Wolverine... Steve Rogers Cap, William Burnside Cap, Falcon Cap, Bucky Cap, USAgent Cap...

DC's got Jay Garrick Flash, Barry Allen Flash, white Wally West Flash, black Wally West Flash and Bart Allen Flash... Alan Scott GL, Hal Jordan GL, Guy Gardner GL, John Stewart GL, Kyle Rayner GL, Simon Baz GL, Jessica Cruz GL...

Ok, some are inactive now, but for how long?

No, it's got to be that enforcer guy who just so happened to look like Wolverine, and then disappeared after one issue.

I don't know how to feel about this. Bringing Logan and Jean back is cool, but there's like five wolverine people running around right now (Laura, Victor, Old Logan, Daren, Jimmy), and you have to wonder how it'll work.

Ehh...the only one that needs to go is Old Logan. Daken, Laura, Inverted Sabertooth, and Jimmy(if given enough time) are all distinctive characters.

I still want to know why Jean died. Like was it editorial mandate or was there a bitter Scott/Emma shipper

Joe Quesada had a nasty divorce, so he took it out on every married superhero he could find.
(Unless they had children.)

Are they officially the Infinity Stones now? Tbh I like the sound of "Infinity Stones" as a group, but prefer "Time Gem", "Space Gem", etc.

Three years of a Logan-free Marvel Universe? We barely had a few days without Logan.
