The Press Release:
The Weapon X program has done it, at the cost of their own destruction: they’ve completed their biggest and most dangerous experiment yet, a hybrid of Hulk and Wolverine DNA known as WEAPON H. Now, he’s ready to take on the world – and he means business.
Following his debut in TOTALLY AWESOME HULK and WEAPON X’S “Weapon of Mutant Destruction” summer crossover, Marvel is excited to announce that the character will star in a new ongoing series coming in March from Totally Awesome Hulk/Weapon X writer Greg Pak and X-Men: Blue artist Cory Smith.
“Greg Pak wrote one of the biggest and most action-packed Hulk stories ever in Planet Hulk…so it only made sense that he brought those same sensibilities to Weapon H,” said series editor Darren Shan. “We’re going to pit him against the biggest threats of the Marvel Universe that you can imagine, starting with a new kind of Wendigo! And then Cory Smith is going to multiply that times ten and smash the hell out of it with his incredible art! Whether you read his first appearance in Weapon X: The Hunt for Weapon H or not, you’re going to find that we only scratched the surface of this bombastic new character!”
Don’t miss WEAPON H, coming to your local comic shop this March!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ll admit that I wasn’t reading “Totally Awesome Hulk” religiously nor the big crossover event so the idea of this Weapon H creation is on the new side to me. That said I am always game for a new character and a first issue. He looks pretty menacing so let’s see what kind of good he does or damage he causes. What do you readers think about this new title? Will you be adding it to your pull list or do you need to peruse on the shelves when it finally arrives? Let me know in the comments section below.
