X Of Swords- Will War Reignite An Old Spark In ‘Wolverine’ #7?

by Tony Thornley

If there’s anything the X-Men are known for, it’s the soap opera. It’s continued to be prominent no matter who the creatives and who the characters are. And now X of Swords may be pushing back together a pairing whose romance was cut tragically short.

Wolverine and Storm have been stalwarts of the X-Men since they joined the team in Giant-Size X-Men #1. Neither have left the team for long in the few times they have. Because of this they’ve built a friendship unique in superhero comics.

In 2013, that friendship blossomed into romance. It was a romance different from many others, as it was built on friendship and mutual respect rather than a quick burning passion. However, it was tragically cut short when Logan was killed a year later, encased in adamantium by Weapon X.

Now however, the two may finally have time to reconnect on the eve of war with Arakko. A teaser revealed by Marvel Comics seems to hint that they will. Will the events of Wolverine #7 draw them together? Or will the battle drive them apart once again?

We’re about to find out when Wolverine #7 hits the stands on November 11 by Benjamin Percy, Gerry Duggan, and Joshua Cassara!
