Marvel’s new crossover miniseries, “Predator vs. Wolverine,” will unleash the Predator onto the Marvel Universe, pitting it against the iconic X-Men character, Logan. The four-issue miniseries, launching in September 2023, is written by Benjamin Percy and features artwork by Greg Land, Andrea Di Vito, Ken Lashley, Kei Zama, and more.
This groundbreaking series marks the first time a Yautja, the Predator species, enters the Marvel Universe following Marvel’s acquisition of the Predator license in 2020. In April 2023, Marvel also launched a new 20th Century Studios imprint dedicated to titles such as Predator, Alien, and Planet of the Apes.
Describing the crossover series, Marvel stated, “THE THRILL IS THE KILL! Wolverine has lived one of the longest and most storied lives in comics history. Now witness the untold greatest battles of Logan’s life – against a Predator! One Yautja seeks the greatest prey in existence – and finds it in Weapon X.
From the blood-ridden snows of the Canadian wilderness to the sword-slinging streets of Madripoor, Wolverine and a Predator break everything in their paths on their way to the ultimate victory… or glorious death.”
Benjamin Percy expressed his enthusiasm for bringing the Predator to the Marvel Universe, saying, “I’m not going to say I was born to write this crossover… but sometimes the universe reveals why you were created. I am a child of the eighties. I cannot tell you how many times I watched Predator, just as I cannot tell you how many Wolverine comics I have read, because that would be like telling you how many breaths I’ve taken or cheeseburgers I’ve eaten. eaten
The mythologies of both are ingrained in me so deeply they might as well be strands of DNA or wisps of soul. The guns, claws, beef, and blood of both franchises have been stewing in my brain since 1987 when I read myself to sleep every night with a stack of Marvel comics, and my friends and I used to play ‘Predator’ with Nerf guns in the woods and river near our neighborhood.”
This epic hunt will span decades as both of these formidable characters learn, harden, and grow deadlier with time. Neither will have time to bleed, but readers better make time to read because Percy promises to pour his heart and soul into this event, joined by some of the best artists in the business.
The cover art for “Predator vs. Wolverine #1” is created by Marco Checchetto, and the issue is set to release on September 20, 2023, from Marvel Comics.
