Weapon X has never looked so fierce! The limited-edition Wolverine designer collectible toy by artist Jesse Hernandez is the next evolution in superhero style, fusing Adamantium strength with Aztec-inspired artistry.
Artist Statement: It was epic getting to mash up one of my favorite Marvel characters with Aztec and Mayan influences. Wolverine was re-imagined as “Wolvie Muerto” a Day of the Dead style Luchador. Masked up and ready to rumble.

Can't wait for the Batman! Would love to see his take on an Aztec / Mayan versions of Black Panther, Spiderman, Ghost Rider, etc.. Sabretooth would be a good villain companion to this Wolverine!
