Wolverine and the X-Men is a comic book series published by Marvel Comics. The title features Wolverine in his role as the headmaster of Jean Grey School for Higher Learning, the students of the school, and various members of the mutant superhero team, the X-Men, who serve as professors of the school.

Publication history[edit]

During the 2011 crossover X-Men: Regenesis, Wolverine left Utopia with a group of X-Men and students. They moved back to Westchester, New York, where they founded the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning.

The initial issues of Wolverine and the X-Men mainly featured the Jean Grey School and its faculty and students. The main antagonist in the book was a new Hellfire Club made up of homicidal genius children, led by Kade Kilgore. Starting from issue #9 the series became a tie-in to the Avengers vs. X-Men event until issue #18, except for issue #17 which featured a standalone story. Starting from issue #19, the series became part of the Marvel NOW! event. According to writer Jason Aaron, the book would follow the events of issue #18, in which the character Broo was shot in the head, and would return to the same type of stories that they were doing before Avengers vs. X-Men. "This is our first Marvel NOW! issue, issue #19, so if anything we're trying to get back to where we were before the 'AvX' madness. It picks up right after the events of 18. There were a lot of angry people on the Internet, which was great. It made my day.".[1] It was also said that Husk would leave the school and a new member will join the faculty who was later revealed to be Storm.

The first volume ended in February 2014 at issue #42.[2] It was relaunched as a new Vol. 2 one week later by Jason Latour as part of the All-New Marvel NOW! event.[3] With the death of Wolverine, the second volume is slated to end with issue 12. It will be followed with a new series called "Spider-Man and the X-Men," taking place after Logan's death and having Spider-Man leading a Special Class, but his true purpose is to investigate the students, as asked by Wolverine.
