He’s the best there is at what he does, but what he does is not very nice. Wolverine is a mutant with incredible regeneration and healing abilities, who also has bones that can pop out of his hands around the knuckles. Born James Howlett around Alberta, Canada in the late 19th Century, he is the son of John and Elizabeth Howlett. It is then revealed, however, he is the illegitimate son of their groundskeeper, Thomas Logan. The Howletts throw him off their property when his son attempts to sexually assault Liz. Thomas returns to end John, which causes James to end Thomas. He then flees, going on to grow up in a mining colony under the name “Logan.”
Eventually, Logan goes on to take part in many wars and battles, including World War II alongside Captain America. He is then kidnapped and taken into the Weapon X program which results in his entire skeleton being fused with adamantium. This is a powerful metal within the Marvel Universe. This allows his bone claws to now be fused with the same substance, making them nearly indestructible. Logan escapes then joins up with the Canadian Government’s Department H, an intelligence program. Which would one day lead to a run-in with the Incredible Hulk. After this, he is actually sent on a mission to execute Charles Xavier, which Professor X finds out about. He then removes this from his mind and convinces Logan to join the X-Men.
