Wolverine continues to be one of the most popular Marvel characters out there, especially now that he's back in the land of the living. A lot of writers have told a number of Wolverine stories, from Jason Aaron to Daniel Way, and most recently, Charles Soule. However, one writer was able to establish what makes the character tick; Chris Claremont.

And he's coming back to the title!

Newsarama has confirmed that Chris Claremont will be writing Wolverine: Exit Wounds and he will reunite with current Uncanny X-Men artist Salvador Larroca to tell a tale that takes place at the end of Claremont's Kitty Pryde and Wolverine mini-series. Larry Hama and Sam Keith will also provide some stories for everyone's favorite X-Man, which should be a lot of fun, especially with their experience with the character.

Here's what Claremont told the website about his story:
