Mark Millar and John Romita Jr's original "Enemy of the State" story was a huge deal for Marvel in the early 2000s, as it brought the popular widescreen style to the main Marvel Universe and was one of the first "blockbuster" stories of the decade.

Next month, Laura Kinney --- the All-New Wolverine --- faces a similar trial of her own as she is manipulated and forced to become a killer once again in Tom Taylor and Nik Virella "Enemy of the State II". Ahead of the blockbuster sequel, Marvel has provided an early, unlettered look at the first issue of the storyline in All-New Wolverine #13.

The first year of All-New Wolverine has been mostly light-hearted and fun, featuring team-ups with The Wasp and the adoption of an actual Wolverine named Jonathan. A sequel to "Enemy of the State" looks set to change the tone in a drastic and intentional way to show the stakes that come with taking the name Wolverine.

Laura has built a solid life for herself, with a younger sister in the form of clone Gabby and even a father figure in Old Man Logan, but --- as all Wolverines know --- you can't escape your past, and the demons that drove X-23 to become an unstoppable killing machine once again re-emerge, sending Wolverine on a journey of revenge and redemption.

The preview for All-New Wolverine #13 is especially interesting for featuring a classified panel, leaving readers to wonder what's in the box that has Laura so scared. Check out the unlettered preview below:
