Marts explained that “For a long time, no matter who Wolverine was battling, he’s been the eternal victor.

“He almost always comes out on top. Now he finally comes up against an adversary that he cannot win against, he cannot fight.”

The character’s death will be teased this summer in the storyline '3 Months to Die, and that fans should be prepared for what Marts says a “world without Wolverine."
