Hugh Jackman & Comic Creators Mourn The Death Of ‘Wolverine’ Creator

Logan Hugh Jackman Wolverine
Wolverine comics creator Len Wein recently passed away, and it hasn’t taken long for the actor who played the character for nearly twenty years and across nine movies to come up with a short but sweet statement honoring the comic book legend.

In years past, Jackman met with Wein at SDCC 2008, roughly a year before X-Men Origins: Wolverine was released. Jackman personally let Wein know that he was honored to portray his character in several movies:

Jackman’s final performance as the character occurred in this year’s Logan, meaning that Wein most likely saw it earlier this year. Jackman certainly wasn’t alone in missing Wein’s presence, as there came an outpour of support from the comic book community at large:

Aside from his contributions to Wolverine, Wein also worked on comics such as Teen Titans, Superman, BatmanSwamp ThingX-Men, Fantastic FourThe Defenders, and even served as an editor on Alan Moore and David Gibbons’s seminal graphic novel Watchmen. He will be missed.

Logan is available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and On-Demand, with a cast that includes Hugh Jackman as James “Logan” Howlett (Wolverine), Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier (Professor X), Boyd Holbrook as Donald Pierce, Stephen Merchant as Caliban, Richard E. Grant as Dr. Zander Rice, Dafne Keen as Laura Kinney (X-23).
