After joining the Marvel Prime Universe in 2016, Old Man Logan's adventures in his ongoing solo series are coming to an end.
Revealed in Marvel's October 2018 solicitations, Old Man Logan #50 by writer Ed Brisson and artist Ibraim Roberson, with a cover by artist Andrea Sorrentino, will serve as the series finale for the older Wolverine from the Wastelands.
The cover shows Logan surrounded by many of the characters who played a part in his series and his life, including Bullseye, Elektra, Laura Kinney and her cloned sister Gabby, Old Man Hawkeye, Storm, Jubilee and many more.
Old Man Logan was one of the survivors of Secret Wars, finding himself in a world similar to the one he left, but drastically different. One of the major differences is in his world, he mistakenly murdered his fellow X-Men after being dupped by the Spider-Man villain, Mysterio.
With the opportunity for a second chance, Old Man Logan rejoined his fellow mutants in the pages of X-Men Gold and Weapon X. The move to cancel his ongoing series could have something to do with the main Wolverine returning from the dead. The former All-New Wolverine, Laura Kinney, has also lost the Wolverine moniker to return back to her former name of X-23.
Aside from the cover, the solicitation teases Old Man Logan making an exit from our world. With his healing factor not working as it should, Old Man Logan is definitely more vulnerable than he's ever been, but would Marvel really kill the character off? Of course, it wouldn't be the first time this happened, as the Logan motion picture concluded with Hugh Jackman's Wolverine passing away.
