The Weapon X program just will not die, and this time around they've managed to produce something that will stand toe to toe with the combined might of Wolverine, Sabretooth, Lady Deathstrike, Warpath, and Domino. When all else fails though, you just have to call in a Hulk.
The big showdown hits in Marvel's new crossover "Weapons of Mutant Destruction", where Greg Pak's Weapons X will meet Amadeus Cho's Totally Awesome Hulk. "The heroes and villains who have come together to battle the new Weapon X include some of Marvel's most ruthless killers, trackers, and hand-to-hand combatants with Logan, Sabretooth, Domino, Warpath, and Lady Deathstrike," said series writer Greg Pak. "But to stop Weapon X, our team needs the brains and brawn of Amadeus Cho, a.k.a. the Totally Awesome Hulk. The trick is that Amadeus's cocky optimism might put him on a collision course with his own ruthless teammates. The sheer visceral fun comes from the massive mayhem of the world's most lethal X-Men cutting loose alongside the Hulk with the fate of all mutantkind is in the balance."
Logan was never a fan of cockiness or optimism, so this could be a rough ride for everyone involved. They'll have to get over their differences though if they're going to stop Weapon X's Batch H. "Batch H is the final step, the big, terrifying climax of everything that Weapon X has been working towards since our series began," continues Pak. "And if they succeed, mutants will never face a more perfect predator or more implacable enemy!" You can view the first look at the series in the gallery.
Weapons of Mutant Destruction is written by Greg Pak with art by Mahmud Asrar. Skan, Pasqual Ferry, and Ron Lim provide the issue's variant covers, and you can find the official description for the series below.
