In a new What If…? story from Marvel Comics, Miles Morales is the most dangerous weapon in the Marvel Universe, as the new Wolverine.
Warning! Spoilers for What If…Miles Morales #2 by Marvel Comics
Miles Morales is about to become a new version of Wolverine and one of the deadliest weapons in the Marvel Universe. Marvel Comics will be turning Spider-Man into a series of different heroes in their upcoming What If…? miniseries. The second issue of What If… Miles Morales will see the hero get his own Wolverine costume claws and transform into the deadliest killing machine in the Marvel Universe.
Few heroes are as cool and more enthusiastic about doing good as Miles Morales’ Spider-Man. Now, with the web-slinger’s rising profile at Marvel Comics, the publisher is about to imagine what if the character took many different paths as a hero. In November, it was revealed Miles would get his own What If… Miles Morales miniseries with each issue featuring a different creative team turning him into other Marvel heroes. What If… Miles Morales #1 by Cody Ziglar and Paco Medina will imagine what if the hero was injected with the Super-Soldier Serum and became Captain America. Issue two will see Morales take on a much deadlier form as Wolverine.
In Marvel Comics solicitations for April, it was revealed Miles Morales would be taking on the role of Wolverine in a comic by Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Ridley and artist Farid Karami. In a new reality in What If… Miles Morales #2, Morales will have a much more tragic tale, as everything was taken from him as he became an immortal weapon of war. The hero will become Wolverine with a new costume and claws – and it doesn’t seem like Marvel is softening the hero, as he will be one of the deadliest and most dangerous weapons in the world. Check out the cover by Sara Pichelli, featuring Morales’ Wolverine slicing open a Sentinel.
However, this version of Wolverine will fight against what he became, as the solicit teases he will fight what he’s become. After being turned into a deadly weapon, it’s likely Miles Morales, like the actual Wolverine, will try to try to gain his own agency away from a Weapon X-like program. Check out the solicit for the issue below.
- What If… Miles Morales #2 (of 5)
- Written by John Ridley
- Art by Farid Karami
- Cover by Sara Pichelli
- Concept variant from Paco Medina
- Variant cover by Carlos Pacheco
- Variant Cover by Declan Shalvey
- MILES IS THE BEST THERE IS AT WHAT HE DOES…
- And in this reality, what he does isn’t very nice. What if…Miles was taken from everything he ever knew – his family, his home, his life – and transformed into the most dangerous, immortal weapon of war the world has ever seen? Miles has been made into the Wolverine…but that doesn’t mean he has to be what they made him…
While it might seem odd to see Morales turn into a deadly weapon like Wolverine, that’s what makes the What If…? comics great. It reimagines heroes and villains and takes them on different paths than their usual journeys. In this case, it’s a much bloodier path for Miles with a badass new costume. Readers can see Miles Morales become Wolverine when What If… Miles Morales #2 comes to comic book stores in April.
