“I think that's one of the aims of my run, to not lean on that too heavily,” he said. “I want to back off from ‘let's dissolve him and see what happens.' It seems to be the default, and I don't trust the urge to go for it. Because this run sees Wolverine making some changes in his life, trying to turn a corner, I've had him come up with a couple of new uses for his powers, but they're not about pushing the healing factor as far as it'll go.”

Though Wolverine's power may make him nearly impossible to kill, Cornell points out sales considerations make Wolverine — and other top characters — likely to survive nearly anything.

“Well, most leading characters are practically un-killable,” Cornell said at Marvel.com. “Batman is probably going to be back next issue, as with Superman. It's about making Wolverine vulnerable in other ways: human ways, emotional ways.”
