Announced on Xavier Files, the January one-shot Weapon Plus: World War IV #1 will introduce Man-Slaughter - a newly-revealed creation of the Weapon IV program using the same serum which turned Ted Sallis into the Man-Thing.
Here is the solicitation. Look for Marvel's full January 2020 solicitations Thursday, October 24 at 10 a.m. Eastern time.

WHATEVER KNOWS FEAR!
Biochemist Ted Sallis was developing a serum for military application, but was tragically killed in a freak accident before he could perfect it. Still, the data behind his formula remains property of the United States government and the Weapon IV Program to this day–Mutants aren’t the only ones to have weaponized flora!
