Damon Lindelof, co-creator and executive producer of the ABC television series Lost, has been announced by Marvel Comics as the writer of Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk.

Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk, which launches in December, will mark Lindelofıs first comic book writing effort.

Here's how the story is described:

"...in a high-octane tale that echoes the classic first appearance of Wolverine (from Incredible Hulk #181). Dr. Bruce Banner (a.k.a. the Hulk) has been presumed dead since his execution following a murderous rampage through Manhattan. But when reports start cropping up of an unidentified creature appearing around the globe, General Nick Fury ­ head of Americaıs premiere intelligence organization, S.H.I.E.L.D ­ begins to get worried. Not because Banner can turn from man to unstoppable monster in seconds, but because Banner's existence is the one secret that can bring down Fury. So Fury turns to the only man he can trust: James Logan, a.k.a. Wolverine of the X-Men, to take care of Banner -- by any means necessary."

The series will be illustrated by Leinil Yu, who recently signed an exclusive contract with Marvel.

"I'm an enormous fan of Lindelof's work, which is really all about human drama," said Joe Quesada, Marvel editor-in-chief. I know that his take on this new series will thrill traditional comic fans and definitely appeal to a whole new audience of fans drawn to his amazing creativity and storytelling ability."

"I actually owned Hulk #181 when I was a kid," Lindelof said. "Then my mom threw it away. I can't believe how lucky I am to have the opportunity to re-introduce these two iconic characters to each other in the no-holds-barred world of the Ultimate Universe. I am truly honored to get a chance to fulfill my life-long dream of writing for Marvel."

Prior to Lost, Lindelof was co-producer on Crossing Jordan and wrote for the first three seasons of the show. Last year, along with J.J. Abrams, Lindelof created Lost. Currently in his position as executive producer, Lindelof shares day-to-day showrunning and writing responsibilities with Carlton Cuse.
