Get A First Look at Laura Kinney as the All-New Wolverine [Preview]
Spider-Man; Captain America; Thor; Hulk; Marvel has done a remarkable job in recent years of passing some of its best known hero identities from a surfeit of regular ol' white dudes to characters that better represent the diversity of the world we live in, sometimes by handing the mantle to a person of color, sometimes to a woman, sometimes both.
This welcome development continues with a woman, Laura Kinney, taking the role of Wolverine, and making her official debut with that codename in All-New Wolverine #1 next month courtesy of writer Tom Taylor and the art team of David Lopez and David Navarrot. Marvel has released a preview that you can check out below, along with all the variant covers.
