Marvel Announces Predator vs. Wolverine Crossover Series!

It’s the moment that many of us expected once news came that Marvel would be taking over the Alien and Predator comics – Marvel has just announced the first crossover with one of their legacy characters, Wolverine! Written by Benjamin Percy (who previously wrote Aliens: Aftermath), Predator vs. Wolverine is a 4 issue series that is currently expected to hit shelves in September.

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.

According to Marvel’s announcement,  the interior artwork of Predator vs. Wolverine will be provided by many different artists including the controversial Greg Land, Andrea Di Vito, Ken Lashley, Kei Zama, and “many more.” 

In addition to Benjamin Percy’s previous credit writing for Aliens under Marvel, he is writing Marvel’s current Wolverine and X-Force series. Describing the scope of the upcoming crossover, Percy explains:

“This epic hunt will span decades, as both of these giants learn and harden and grow deadlier with time,” Percy continued. “Neither will have time to bleed, but you better make time to read, because I’m putting everything I’ve got into this event, and I’m thrilled to join forces with some of the best artists in the business.”

Marvel also recently announced the second volume of Predator: The Original Years which is expected to release March 2024. The first issue of Predator vs. Wolverine will release in September 2023. Thanks to Julio Nimbley Jr. and Gareth Von Kallenbach for the news.

    Quote from: Chieftain Suom on Jan 17, 2024, 08:28:25 PMHonestly, I'm not an X-Men fan at all and I loved this crossover series. SUPER interesting about the Predator's nickname. Initially, I thought it looked more like fish scales (probably because my 2 year old is obsessed with Finding Nemo right now) but the snake scales make way more sense and I really dig the nickname Copperhead for this Predator.
    I saw someone reached out to the writer on twitter on the question. Hopefully the writer gives an answer on either approving the fan name or revealing the name he already had for him.


    Interesting.. I was hoping there might be a reveal of concept art with a name on it or something like that.

    I hope so too. Would be cool to see the thought process behind the story.

    Quote from: Retropocalypse on Jan 18, 2024, 08:20:30 AMIn light of how good this crossover series was, I'm hoping we get an Alien/Star Wars one.

    I'd love for a Xenomorph outbreak to happen on the Death Star.
    I know in the comic, there was a skull in the trophy room that looks like a Rancor skull so maybe that's a light nod to Preds and perhaps to an extent, xenos existing in Star Wars? Love to see a crossover too. Aliens ambushing Star Troopers or a Predator dueling with a Jedi.

    Quote from: Mr.Turok on Jan 17, 2024, 08:09:32 PMIt's a shame that Predator vs Wolverine isn't gaining much of a huge traction, despite being such a great quality story. Guess with the whole culture war on Marvel and comics in general is distracting from this well deserved attention.

    Also, I wonder if the writer has given a name to the Predator yet. I saw someone coined the term Copperhead due to the mask having details akin to a snake via the scales on the top part and the design is sharp like a snake's fangs.

    The Predator wearing the bear's skull as a mask was creepy as fuuuuck, but I really liked his fish scale patterned mask with the bear claw marks across it. This predator would make for an amazing action figure. Whale sold separately.

    Also, love when he pulled out the Ceremonial Dagger!

    This made me realize at a slightly unrelated issue and not a real big one at that but one that realize something. The spear throughout the story is never extended. It was always in the "sheathe" form. Almost like shooting a gun while it's in the holster  :laugh:

    , but I was thrilled to see how balanced I felt the portrayal of each character was. It very much feels like a Batman vs. Predator in that regard.

    Aside from Loracco's artwork in the first issue, I thought the artwork was fantastic. I wasn't too sure on Gavin Guidry and Matthew Wilson's Winchester era style, but that's nothing objective, just a subjective take on the style. Did that mean anything? Was that typical of anything to do with the stories in that era?

    I'm quite looking forward to sitting and going through this series in its entirety.

    Just read all 4 issues in one go and was pleasantly surprised at how solid this crossover turned out! Neither side felt overpowered and Percy did a great job at weaving Wolverine lore together with Predator lore. Couple of nice nods to Prey added to the overall awesomeness! Best Predator crossover since Batman IMO!

    Just read the first issue on the Marvel Unlimited app.
    Let me just say that not only was it a great first issue, but reading it on the app was actually fun!
    The transitions of the Predator using its cloaking was amazing in the app.

    Quote from: RakaiThwei on Dec 30, 2023, 01:52:31 AMI wrote in a letter to Marvel, and even marked it as "OKAY TO PRINT" to maybe see it answered and printed. I had gave them some suggestions to help in writing their versions of the Predators better, even referring to what they're capable of even without tech, I even referenced Predator: Hunters III where we even saw a clan of Predators with wooden and bone weapons taking out Anti-Predator Elite teams and AVP Prey to show them that Predators have their own martial art called "Jehdin" and how one Predator, Broken Tusk, emphasized on the use of blades and bare fists, and the reliance on one's own senses.
    With the recent return of John Schafer, I know at least they have looked at Hunters III so perhaps, and I hope they done, is read your letter and/or already went ahead and implemented such notes into future comics.  I wasn't familiar with Jehdin. I'm a take a look back at the novel, as I don't recall that bit of info. The closest thing to a martial art that I was aware of was actually a fighting style from MKX of all places, the "Hish-Qu-Ten" variation. Oh and also that one short story, Skeld's Keep where one of the Predators in question, One Eye, is a master of wristblade combat so there is another martial art style they got going on with that too.

    While I get that, like people, there would be Predators who would rely on their tech too much but to use it as the standard is not the case either. Hubris kills them, which can apply to either skill and/or tech. The Predator Wolverine was facing kept refining and removing those weaknesses, which as a proper Predator should. Which is why I personally understood why the ending went the way it did.

    I think also what is the point of any versus if there is no possibility of a Pred removing a head. I came around to the notion that at times there has to be a Predator win here and there in order to keep it unpredictable and threatening. Yes I can't ignore how hard it is to bring one done as they leave a mountain of bodies before they die but sometimes there can be a moment where we drop a duce cuz one of them actually walks away and comes back for more. Keeps things always fresh and attention grabbing. It's why Scarface and Ahab are so well liked, they got personality and actually survive to live up to the name of the Predator with a list of feats behind them.

    Quote from: Mr.Turok on Dec 30, 2023, 01:16:44 AMSame. It feels like they have no idea on how else to deal with the race other than another enemy to deal with. I see people wanting a fight pitted against say Kraven, Spider-Man, and others but at this point we all know they will never allow a Predator to take their head.

    MY hope is that maybe they can pull a Scarface and have the Predator survive the blast, and have him be a reoccurring character. Whenever having solo issues or fighting the X-Men from time to time. It's Marvel, they brought back characters from worse conditions from very slim or sillier reasons.

    Apparently, this Predator learned Earth based Martial Arts which Muramasa seemingly noticed and openly stated. This Predator learned some Shorin-ryu Karate and Brazilian Jiujitsu. As someone who's practiced Martial Arts, I was very pleased to see this but I felt that we didn't see enough of it. If anything, I would've liked Logan to suddenly realize and say "Now, he's gotten over his weakness of using the tech. This guy is skilled." Or something along those lines.
    [close]

    I love that detail, it just goes to show how too Preds are adaptable and pick up on things from the prey they hunt. At the same time, Logan should have made note of that too but I figured it was implied at the final battle when they really went at it.

    Quote from: RakaiThwei on Dec 28, 2023, 10:47:33 PMWhat I didn't like?

    Spoiler
    I... really didn't like how this one Predator outright attacked the Xavier Institute, and ultimately took Rogue hostage. I don't think that's something I've seen in the Dark Horse series, and I didn't like seeing it here. It's something out of character for most Predators to do. Only a coward or a Bad blood would do something like that.
    [close]

    I'm also conflicted because it almost looks like he is breaking the rules but a closer look, one can argue that he is bending the rules seeing how there was no real physical harm to anyone there with the exception of...

    Spoiler
    Professor X and that is because his psionic/telepathic powers makes him still super dangerous despite his disability. He don't need to come after you physically to cause real harm. I don't remember much on how he was back then with his powers so I'm open to being wrong on this.

    Quote from: RakaiThwei on Dec 28, 2023, 10:47:33 PM
    Spoiler
    Also, the X-Men pwning this Predator... You'd think for a Yautja who's fought Logan so many times would've posed a higher level of danger against the X-Men, especially a team without the likes of Cyclops, Jean and Beast on the team. If anything, he should've given them more of a fight and made the team realize, he's not something to be trifled with.
    [close]

    It's also that he took them by surprise just as much they took him by surprise. You saw how they got the jump on him, he wasn't ready for all those diverse powers coming at him at once. I think it was a sign of him getting sloppy and not really studying the mansion's people as he should. After all, decades before had shown him being very analytical so guess the decades of this feud really got to him?

    Also, as we saw with them there:

    Spoiler
    Their powers were too much for him. The ambush got him stunlocked like how a fighting game character gets beatin in their corner with no way out. Rouge alone could have just drained the Predator's entire lifeforce but guess in that time, they're been known to be very merciful than today? Nightcrawler's teleportation, Kitty's ability to phase through solids, Rogue's life drain, and that is just their surface abilities. Now throw in Colossus, The Beast, and now a recovered Wolverine out in the open for the Predator to deal with? I don't think it stood a chance when the ball is in their court.

    Quote from: Mr.Turok on Dec 28, 2023, 12:20:35 AMI love the finale and I have no idea why some folks, not to many so far, didn't like how it went but it made sense to both the characters.

    Spoiler
    Predator saw the writing on the wall and self-destructed as a final FU to Wolverine. Some people wanted the clan retrieval route but this one is more refreshing as we don't see the self-destruction as much anymore. It's funny how Wolverine will miss him, saying that he felt more alive and ready for action knowing that there was one hunting for his head. Oh you such silly goober Wolvie.
    [close]

    Oh and someone please can answer me that why:

    Spoiler
    The X-Men spared the Predator. Wolverine warned how dangerous it was and they chose to let it go. Rouge could have soaked it's lifeforce easily but only did it enough to stop it from fighting.
    [close]

    And this Predator has alot of personality that it's a shame that it has no nickname yet. Hopefully if Cpl Hicks and the squad manages to get Greg on an interview they can ask him the question. THAT and how in the hell does Wolverine know to they are called Yautja, the final issue even doesn't explain this at all.

    Someone in the fan letter section said that it would be cool if the comic can be adapted into an animated form and I f**kIN HOPE SO PLEASE! It's a good run and I think it follows the Batman vs Predator first run very well in terms of quality.

    Having looked at issue four online (not necessarily read thoroughly... I'll do that when I get the physical copy in hand) I can say that there was something which I didn't expect Marvel to actually do with their Predator in this series, and I can't believe I missed at it first glance but...

    Honestly I don't know. Like one can try to rationalize that the Predator in issue 4:

    Spoiler
    Used missiles strong enough to shake up the mansion but not so much that it outright kills everyone there. As he just wants to draw Wolverine out, not kill everyone in there, otherwise the artillery would have been much more powerful. HOWEVER, if we want to be technical with the code, it says not to harm the unarmed/non-combatants, which he made sure he did. Bending the rules but not breaking them. The villainy trope of "I gave you my word" kind of deal.

    Issue 3 was another solid read. I love how Logan compares Predator to hunters with modern tech that are killing animals from safe distance, since it's kinda how I also see Predators :) As next issues go I also like more and more this Predator that seems to be motivated more by vengence more than anything else, but he's still excited when he finds out that Wolverine got adamantium and can be even more worthy trophy. Overall it's pretty solid series. It doesn't change my mind about Benjamin Percy being a bad writer, but to give credit where credit is due, he's doing good job with this little crossover.

    Quote from: RakaiThwei on Dec 19, 2023, 11:39:19 PMFrom what I've looked at Marvel's Predator run online, is that the Predators have been reduced to Monster of the Issue, and are nothing more than just hack/slash, rawr... Marvel's Predators compared to Dark Horse are... relatively boring. They have no personalities.
    I hope within time they can prove to do more than just being monsters to fight.

    Quote from: RakaiThwei on Dec 19, 2023, 11:39:19 PMBut this one in this comic... He's got a little bit of a personality. Not on the level of like say Broken Tusk, Smiley or even Ahab but... he's got SOMETHING.
    I appreciate the hater energy this one gives off. Has that willingness to walk across 6 lane traffic to fight his opps on the other side of type of vib. Looking for that smoke constantly, the beef is on sight, no anticipation or nothing. It's because of this is why it would be cool to see what he was up too during the decade gaps of facing Wolverine. You know he was running on some kind of dark airforce energy. During every hunt he was in, he was thinking about Wolverine while killing some sorry alien warrior or soldier at the same time, nashing his tusks while thinking about how his going to get him and stuff. Comically badass I feel yeah.

    Does he even have a nickname? Someone should ask the writers. He deserves one.

    Quote from: Mr.Turok on Dec 16, 2023, 03:31:16 AMThere is also addressing the idea of telling a Predator centered story and character that people can agree on as many people have thier own vision of Predator character and culture. Can it be done in a way that can satisfy people without stepping on toes? I seen the AVP and Predator anthology novels attempt this with some mixed responses.

    Outside of Predator vs Wolverine, I really... don't think that Marvel would ever go out of their way to give us a Predator protagonist or even treat antagonistic Predators as just more than intergalactic slashers who can be one shot by "Great Value Machiko" aka Theta.

    Exactly this. Nevermind the fanbase, it's simply that Wolverine is one of Marvel's faces, they would never let Wolverine get a perma death. Sure he can always be brought back to life, as one does in Marvel stories, but would that really count as a real win?

    It's also the simple fact that Predators are villain characters. As much as I like to see a reoccurring Predator character, unless they start off in an antihero light, they mostly will die. Kind of hard to have em survive when they are all about getting shit done or die trying.

    At most, Marvel might have something like...

    • Maybe an elder pred "beats" a younger, hot-headed Wolverine. Wolverine is spared or barely escapes, recovers and avenges the loss, maybe his turn to spare the elder, and/or the two then somehow team up against a greater threat.

    The Wolverine vs. Pred comic already has elements or echoes of the above.

    Wouldn't make commercial sense to have a pred straight up  kill Wolverine, as that type of controversy would likely lose Marvel readers rather than gain them.

    There is room however for a developed, recurring predator character to be introduced in the 616 or other more popular Marvel universe. Wouldn't have to be a primary protagonist or antagonist,but more of a semi-mysterious supporting character who shows up sometimes and maybe gets a miniseries or spin-off.

    The thing with Preds, in contrast to Aliens, is the former are relatively more human and can be developed more as individual characters.

    Quote from: Mr.Turok on Dec 14, 2023, 06:03:02 PMWould be cool if he survives. He got enough character that can be built around having his own mini-series of some kind. Not many Predator characters out there that had a hunting resume including "Facing down Wolverine" over the span of decades.

    It's also that I have no idea how would this outcome be possible seeing that the Predator really wants to kill him, and even Wolverine wants to finally settle the score.

    It would be cool to see a Predator win against such a high profile opponent like Wolverine, let alone walk away and survive in one piece.... But I do not see that happening. There's no way Marvel will ever kill off one of their flagship characters, even if this is an alternate continuity against a character like a Predator. The only way I see the Predator winning is if the story calls for it.

    That, and I'm pretty sure Marvel doesn't wanna piss of Wolverine's fanbase.

    Wolverine fans are RABID.... I say this from seeing this on many Character VS communities. WOOF.

    I really wanted to see the Predator and Wolverine in a slobber knocker, where the Predator pins Wolverine down and then uses the acid on Wolverine to keep him down in only momentarily. But... we didn't get that. Instead, this Predator just more or less... tries to kidnap Logan when he was in a vulnerable state.

    I particularly didn't like that. It's just something I really don't see Predators doing, as it's something... really cheap.

    And uh... the idea that this Predator, doesn't really seem to rely on skill and more tech... I'm just not feeling that too. If anything, it just shows that Marvel's Predators aren't ones to pick up skills to make them better Hunters, like Dark Horse's Predators did.

    I never got that feeling of Marvel's Predators being that. Feels like Wolverine is just assuming due to the Predator's obvious high tech gear and fuzzy memory of his previous fights with the Predator.

    Spoiler
    My guess with what you mentioned, is that the moment he saw what Wolverine has, it became a slightly higher priority to retrieve such a rare thing. He's been through it against Wolverine before so what he did seems like just a tactic he would have used anyway in a fight so in his eyes, he caught him lacking so he took his shot to get at his opps.

    My primary thought tho is that Wolverine would have ended it there and then, being what he was at that point. No way the comic would have progressed if this fight actually was allowed in that point of time. I don't think he would have stood for so long to get his acid spray out.

    There's a Rancor skull in there.

    How I wish for a crossover. If this is the case, this Predator would be the most traveled and seasoned Predator we ever seen if he hunted in both Marvel and Star Wars universes. Even if he perishes on this story, an inbetween mini-run of him messing about in Star Wars would be a joy to see.

    Quote from: Corporal Hicks on Nov 30, 2023, 12:43:40 PMReally enjoyed the third issue. I don't know Wolverine lore well enough to appreciate it on the level that Mr.Turok is, but certain elements are obvious enough with things like the helmet that I understand it and enjoy it. The artwork is continuing to be great - really strong now we've dropped Lorocca after that first part of the history.
    I genuinely didn't expect the writing to go forth and weave Predator events into Wolverine's life in a manner that wouldn't disturb his core events like that. Fighting Weapons X Wolverine sure but have it actually influence them such as the
    Spoiler
    Weapons X helmet derive from Predator tech

    was such a blindside but very welcome integration of Predator into Marvel's universe. I'm really looking forward to the conclusion of this story.

    Spoiler
    kidnapping Wolverine like that. I loved the acid too. That was brutal and quite smart. Can Wolverine really recover that well? The artwork depicted it has having burnt away all biologicals aspects of his skull.

    So from what I recall, Wolverine's regeneration can bring him back as long as his bones are intact due to the bone marrow that allows his regen to kick in. Bone marrow has our DNA after all, so it makes sense that the cells there would be the base to allow him to jump back into the game. Since he has adamantium protecting his bones from complete destruction, he can come back from basically anything long as the adamantium bones remains.

    I love how Prey influenced this design concept. Predators are beings of both tribalistic and futuristic themes, which haven't been displayed much design wise post-P2 and pre-Prey films. While I like Fugitive's armor design in The Predator, the tribal aspect was nearly gone from that point so seeing this brought back to balance in recent media is a welcoming sight to see.

    I especially love the fact that it implies the mask

    Quote from: Mr.Turok on Nov 30, 2023, 06:21:01 AMI recognize why the art on each issue is different now, as Wolverine almost leans on the 4th Wall on this that his memory is fuzzy and tries to remember things to the best of his ability, and the different artstyles reflect on said theme of recovering memories.

    I really like that read on the differing styles! That's really an insightful take on it!

    Issue #3 is another fine comic, and if the quality keeps on being steady, I can see this being a good one among the likes of Batman vs Predator. The IPs don't step on each others toes or dethrone one in favor of the other. I recognize why the art on each issue is different now, as Wolverine almost leans on the 4th Wall on this that his memory is fuzzy and tries to remember things to the best of his ability, and the different artstyles reflect on said theme of recovering memories.

    Now to go on to the spoilers:

    Spoiler
    So I love how the comic tries to weave into the actual lore of Wolverine in that the reason why there was so many bodies and the facility looking decimated when Wolverine first woken up to find the Weapon X facility all busted down is because how the Predator broke into it to find Wolverine.

    There wasn't a fight between Wolverine and the Predator this time around as he kidnapped Wolverine to try extracting both his skull and the metal alloy sheathing his skeleton, which of a kind the Predator never seen before. Rather it became a fight between the US/Canadian Weapon X military that is trying to recover Wolverine back for their projects. Berserker Wolverine only broke out of the ship.

    Which ties into Berserker Wolverine's iconic Weapons X helmet is in fact re-engineered Predator tech because of the mask left behind when the Predator took an unconscious Wolverine to his ship. Once again, I love how these small details are big impact attempts to weave the Predator events into actual canon of Wolverine's lore.

    Good issue, lets see the fight of Wolverine and Muramasa vs Predator go down!

    Quote from: Mr.Turok on Nov 14, 2023, 05:45:05 AMI liked the second issue. Quality still keeps up and leaves wanting for more. Ending got me intrigued on how the Pred went to great lengths to find Wolverine again. Gotta say on spoilers:

    Spoiler
    Wished Sabertooth's fight was a bit longer but guess issue limits is what the writers had to work with. That being said, he taken down a Pred with him as he should so least there is that.

    Gotta say that the durability of Marvel's Predators is powerful, as our main Predator was able to survive a temple room's full of explosives going off, taking a huge chunk of the structure along with it.

    Leaves me with the ending with how our main Pred (doesn't even have a nick name yet?) breaking into Weapons X like it was nothing and looking over Wolverine's post adamantium experiment.
    [close]
    Yeah I really liked the second issue, it's kept my interest and has not disrespected the Predators yet so I'm happy so far. Just read issue 3 and that was awesome! Some cool predator 2 designs make it into the issue. Love it!

    At least he is only assigned to draw sections of the series that include young Wolverine.

    The sections related to Weapon X drawn by Hayden Sherman are my favorite in the series so far. That variant cover for the second pressing of issue 2 that reuses Sherman's last frame of the issue, with the Predator standing over Wolverine at the Weapon X facility, is so dope.
