Everyone knows that death is never permanent in superhero comics, but even this is a surprise. Despite being graphically decapitated in the conclusion of 2003's Wolverine: Evolution
, the X-Man's longtime nemesis Sabertooth
will return to the land of living in a future story by Jeph Loeb
and Simone Bianchi
, the creators who took him out in the first place. The news was dropped at Marvel Comics' Cup 'O Joe panel
at New York Comic Con
, where Loeb said that a backdoor was left ajar in the pages of Evolution
. "The story we told was not the whole story," he told the packed hall. "We did leave breadcrumbs along the way."
Sabertooth will return sometime in 2012.
