The Weapon X program is responsible for a slew of Marvel's most recognizable heroes and villains. The decommissioned program returns this April with a new leader and substantially more resources. The program's goal is mutant extermination and some familiar names are in the crosshairs of the program.
My Take: The return of the Weapon X program will surely lead to the creation of new Weapon X test subjects to hunt Old Man Logan, Sabretooth, Lady Deathstrike, Warpath, and Domino. Will the reactivation of the program possibly lead to the return of the original Wolverine? Lot's of questions that we hope the series can answer when it kicks off in April.
