Red Skull used MCU’s latest weapon against Wolverine

In one of the darkest futures of the Marvel universe, the red skull becomes the owner of the powerful Ebony Blade, and uses it to try to kill Wolverine.

Mens Mark Millars The old man Logan and its superhero-driven wilderness is one of the darkest alternative futures of the multiverse in Marvel Comics, it was made even darker when Red skull was revealed to be the ultimate owner of Ebony Blade. Not only was it part of the skull’s disturbing collection of relics that once belonged to fallen heroes, but he also tried to kill wolverine with the dark and powerful sword. Furthermore, Ebony Blade still has a dark past in this alternate timeline as in the primary Earth-616 universe used in the supervillains’ takeover of the United States.

During the takeover of the supervillain, the Avengers were betrayed by the Thunderbolts in Las Vegas, secretly led by Baron Zemo. During the massacre, sorceress Morgana Le Fay used her magical abilities to take Ebony Blade from its traditional owner Dane Whitman, The Black Knight. Using the powerful sword to behead Tigra, the Ebony Blade was then used to kill Whitman himself when Atlas picked him up and stabbed him with it. Ebony Blade then became part of the collection belonging to the new President Skull.

Years later, when Old Man Logan decided to become a hero again in the wake of Hawkeye’s death, the old Wolverine managed to enter the Red Shrine’s inner sanctuary when his agents believed Logan was dead after they shot him. To discover that this was not the case in Wolverine # 72 (Old Man Logan part 7) from Mark Millar and Steve McNiven used the Red Skull Ebony Blade against Wolverine while the two fought to the death. While their duel would eventually become Red Skull’s last, the fact that he died with the darkest sword in the Marvel universe is certainly a testament to his performance as a supervillain in this bleak future (along with wearing the remnants of Captain America’s mask) .


Given Ebony Blade’s recent renditions of Marvel Comics, where it has effectively become the opposite of Thor’s hammer, it makes sense that Red Skull would be drawn to the sword and its dark power, given how the blade responds to the darkness in its user’s heart. While Dane Whitman has long sought to control and guide the power of the sword for good, Red Skull has no such inhibitions. But the sword probably remained mounted for years, as almost all the heroes of the Marvel universe had either been killed or destroyed in this dark alternative future.

In any case, it looks like Red Skull and Ebony Blade could not match Wolverine with Captain America’s Shield, another relic of Skull’s collection. While Red Skull did not believe Logan had the guts to kill anymore, wolverine proved that he was mistaken in beheading the skull with Steve Rogers’ shield. While the Ebony Blade probably remained in the wreck of the oval office after Wolverine was blown up, Red skull was certainly one of its darkest wielders, which probably meant he was one of the most appropriate considering its own dark nature in Marvel Comics.
