Wolverine returns? Marvel teases possible "ResurreXion" of a clawed mutant



With Old Man Logan and Laura Kinney/ All-New Wolverine running around the "All-New, All Different" Marvel Universe as the resident clawed mutants, the ORIGINAL Wolverine still remains in the afterlife.. But is he set for a return in "ResurreXion" pretty soon? That's what this pixelated image for the cover of "X-Men: Blue" is teasing - and the question is whether it's the ol' canucklehead or perhaps another clawed character? It could be his son Daken... Or another alternate reality version just pulling our leg. Either way, this comes from fan speculation that's also being tackled on by Comic Book.com following the reveal of Marvel's June 2017 solicitations (which you can see via Newsarama). We can only wait and see how this plays out when Marvel reveals more information soon.

X-Men: Blue begins this April and issue #5 hits on June.

Happy 20th Anniversary, Tekken 3!


It's been 20 years since Namco decided to count to 3 with Tekken, and that game has remained embedded in the hearts and minds of fans of the franchise as well as Playstation owners that got the game when it was released for the console the following year. On this day back in 1997, Tekken 3 was released in arcades - bringing the series to a whole new level and introducing protagonist Jin Kazama into the fold along with a handful of new fighters who would become staples in the series. The game is considered one of the greatest video games of all time, and is one of the best-selling Playstation Games of the original console's era as well.


For Nostalgia's Sake, here's the intro again to the PSX version of the game:
