New Wolverine anthology story puts him in the middle of 9-11

Almost 2 decades after the tragedy of September 11, 2001, Marvel's written up a story in the 2nd volume of Marvel Comics Presents seemingly tying Wolverine's history to the era of the World Trade Center's destruction:
In The Vigil, Wolverine has been fighting the demon Ron Killings once per decade, every decade since the 1940s. The story, originally ostensibly in continuity though seeming less so considering the major changes made to Wolverine’s history, including getting a bunch of X-Men killed in the 90s and having a daughter (with a woman he met as a child – yuck), not to mention the fact that the stories play out in real time, not Marvel time. In any case, in Marvel Comics Presents #7, The Vigil gets to the 2000s, and since The Truth appears at some of the most terrible moments in human history, it seems natural to assume that this decade’s appearance will be at the World Trade Center attack on September 11th, 2001.
And here's a panel from the interiors:
.
A followup to an earlier story set during WW2 in this anthology, and I wouldn't be shocked if there was no mention of Islam's role in the modern tragedy, one more reason why this is bound to be as awkward as it was to put the Marvel universe in the middle of 9-11, as J. Michael Straczynski and Joe Quesada did in the notorious Spider-Man issue 36 from late 2001.

As I asked once before, and will again, is the The Truth supposed to represent a leftist idea of what amounts to facts? Quite possibly. Which'll confirm Marvel's still nailed on injection of leftist politics into their books, subtle or otherwise. Something we could do without.

And the idea of Wolvie leading to the deaths of several other mutants and possibly having sex with an underaged girl...ugh. That's not making things any better either.

"And the idea of Wolvie leading to the deaths of several other mutants and possibly having sex with an underaged girl...ugh. That's not making things any better either."

Wolvie's healing abilities make him really long lived; he would be having sex with a woman who he met as a young girl, and who matured even as he stayed much the same age.
