All-New Wolverine scribe Tom Taylor teased the potential return of Wolverine’s son and nemesis, Daken, in his on-going run on the series.
Taylor was asked whether Daken had any thoughts on X-23 taking on the mantle of Wolverine and while his response wasn’t very specific it did hint at Daken’s inevitable return. Taylor responded, “Keep reading.”

Daken has a storied history in Marvel Comics starting in Wolverine Origins #10 when he made his first appearance and became a member of the Dark Avengers. He originally debuted under the name Wolverine.
He even became the lead character in the Wolverine series which would later become Dark Wolverine in issue #75.
Daken also became one the Horsemen of Death when the Apocalypse Twins resurrected him using a Celestial Death Seed. He’s even clashed with the Punisher in the crossover series, “Punisher: Franken-Castle.”
He’s also clashed with X-23 before. The two formed a brief alliance to confront Malcolm Colcord, the former director of Weapon X in “Daken/X-23: Collision.”
It will be interesting to see how Daken and X-23 get along as All-New Wolverine continues.
