A couple of weeks ago, Marvel’s EIC Axel Alonso dropped a bizarre teaser image with little to no information about it… other than the fact it appeared to feature a ginormous hybrid of the Hulk and Wolverine. Today, the company lifted the lid on what it’s for — an incoming crossover between Weapon X and Totally Awesome Hulk.

Revealed through Comicbook.com, Weapons of Mutant Destruction will see the new team of the ongoing Weapon X series — starting as part of the still-awfully-titled “ResurrXion” line of new X-Men and Inhuman comics — Old Man Logan, Domino, Lady Deathstrike, Sabertooth and Warpath teaming up with Amadeus Cho in Totally Awesome Hulk to hunt down the resurgent Weapon X project. While the project has typically focused on mutant-related shenanigans in the past, Logan’s new team discovers that Weapon X’s latest sinister plans have put the Hulk in their sights.
Presumably, if that teaser image is anything to go by, they’re planning to mashup their previous work on Wolverine into the gamma-enhanced strength of a Hulk, which would be a very nasty thing to unleash on the world.
Written by Greg Pak — who currently writes both Totally Awesome Hulk and the upcoming Weapon X book anyway — the Weapons of Mutant Destruction storyline will begin in Totally Awesome Hulk #19 in July, before getting its own one-shot solo comic and continuing in alternating issues of Totally Awesome Hulk and Weapon X.
