The News Minute | September 4, 2014 | 02:57 pm IST Wolverine is going to die, never to return. One of the most popular characters of Marvel Comics, Wolverine will die in the new four-part comic series, titled, Death of Wolverine. The mutant loses his power of healing and his lifeless body is seen being carried by ‘a skeleton death’ on the cover of the final comic in the series, reports The Guardian. ( Image source: Marvel.com ) Although there have been queries whether Wolverine would be back from the dead or not, writer Charles Soule told USA Today ‘Death of Wolverine "is an event that's designed to stick."' A report released on September 2 on Marvel’s website reads, “Grab a box of tissues, because the moment that all of you Wolverine fans have been anticipating has arrived. DEATH OF WOLVERINE #1 hits stores this week, and nothing will ever be the same for the clawed Canadian ever again—mostly because it's hard to change things for a dead guy. Wolverine's been tested in the past, and he's even come close to death on a few occasions. Back then he had his healing factor to pull him out of death's clutches, but now he's not so lucky”. The character of Wolverine was created forty years ago in 1974 by writer Len Wein and Marvel art director John Romita, Sr. Wolverine is a mutant who also has healing powers, making him close to indestructible.  However, many feel that it was Hugh Jackman's portrayal of Wolverine in the X-Men series is what made the character hugely popular and successful.
