Marvel is making a bold new update to the ongoing rivalry between the Hulk and Wolverine, as a new comic book series will showcase their never-seen-before second encounter, where the pair of heroes will fight it out. In the newest preview for X-Men: Legends #1 by Marvel Comics, the in-continuity story features Wolverine and Hulk's rematch, updating Logan's origin with an all-new battle between the powerful Marvel characters.

Wolverine and the Hulk will forever be tied together as heroes, as the former made his debut in The Incredible Hulk #181 by Roy Thomas, Len Wein, and John Romita Sr. Wolverine would quickly turn into a fan-favorite hero for Marvel Comics, immediately joining the X-Men in their Giant-Size relaunch in 1975. However, the new comic book series, X-Men: Legends, reveals that Wolverine actually had another fight with Hulk before joining his fellow mutants, as the pair tried to kill each other with their respective powers.

In a brand new preview of X-Men: Legends #1 by Roy Thomas, Dave Watcher, Edgar Delgado, and VC's Joe Caramagna from Marvel Comics (H/T ComicWatch), the events between Wolverine's debut and joining the X-Men are showcased. Wolverine returns to the woods looking for the Hulk, and when he encounters "that walking greenhouse," who's stunned to see him back in action after their last fight, Logan charges at the Jade Giant with his claws unsheathed.


Wolverine gets even angrier when the Hulk refers to him as a "little man," as he tells him he's already sick of the nickname. He reveals himself as Wolverine and tells the Hulk that if he's lucky, maybe he will live long enough to remember it. Wolverine lunges at the Hulk as the pair engage in their never-seen-before second fight. Considering the fireworks of their first battle and the fact the heroes know more about their respective fighting styles, the encounter might end up having more fireworks than their original introduction.
