From the “Death of X” panel at Comic-Con International: San Diego, Marvel Comics announced All-New Wolverine: “Enemy of the State II.” The new story arc from the creative team of writer Tom Taylor and artist Nik Virella begins in All-New Wolverine #13.
Marvel is remaining vague on the story’s details for now, but “Enemy of the State II” finds Wolverine, Laura Kinney who formerly went by codename X-23, branded a murderer. After spending so long building herself into something more than the mindless killing machine her creators intended, a tragic incident will force Laura to wonder if she’ll ever be anything more than a killer.
“Enemy of the State II” is a spiritual sequel to Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.’s 2006 “Enemy of the State” storyline. That story involved Logan, the original Wolverine, being kidnapped by the Hand and brainwashed into becoming an Agent of Hydra.
"It's a spiritual successor [to the original]," Taylor tells Comic Book Resources in comparing the two stories. "At the heart of it, the first "Enemy of the State" was about a Wolverine who has lost control, who is being used to commit atrocities by dark forces. This sequel is similar. It begins with Laura being used to commit a terrible crime, which will see the State hunting her. She will be doing all she can to track down who used her, while also evading those who want to bring her in."
