Cursed with a berserker fury, the violent mutant known as Wolverine has a reputation of both as an outstanding super hero and as a lethal killer. Born as James Howlett to a wealthy Canadian family at the end of the 19th century, he was forced to abandon his family after the tragic manifestation of his bestial abilities of accelerated healing factor, keenly enhanced senses and bone claws in each hand. Adopting the name Logan, he wandered the world, living a long life filled with blood, war and betrayal, having vile Sabretooth as his archenemy, and the Japanese warrior Ogun as his sensei. Unfortunately, by acting as a lone wolf, Logan was an unwitting subject of the Weapon X Program and had his bones coated in indestructible Adamantium, becoming an even more lethal asset.Rescued and assisted by Mac and Heather Hudson, he joined Department H as a Canadian government operative known as the Wolverine.
Later, Logan was invited by Charles Xavier to join the X-Men, a team of heroes fighting for peace between humans and mutants. Proving to be a challenging addition to the X-Men due to his aggressive behavior, Wolverine was constantly in conflict with his fellow teammate Cyclops. However, he has gradually grown fond of the X-Men, considering them to be his new family. As a recurrent member of the X-Men, Wolverine has also become a noteworthy member of the Avengers. Moreover, he has been tasked to run the secret mutant strike team known as X-Force to protect mutantkind's interests by employing lethal force. Wolverine was also responsible for reforming the Jean Grey School after parting ways with Cyclops and leading his own faction of X-Men.
When all mutantkind was granted asylum by Professor Xavier on the mutant-exclusive nation of Krakoa, Wolverine was one of the first of its residents. Although currently suspicious of the cost of this apparent safe place for mutants, Wolverine still works as the field leader of X-Force, which evolved as an intelligence organization in charge of special operations to counter-attack assaults against Krakoa.
Logan's life began in Cold Lake, Alberta, Canada, sometime between 1882 and 1885. The mutant who would come to be known simply as "Logan" was born James Howlett, the illegitimate son of Elizabeth Howlett (who was married to John Howlett, owner of a large estate) and the Howletts' groundskeeper, Thomas Logan. As a boy, James was notably frail and prone to bouts of allergic attacks. He was largely neglected by his mother, who had been institutionalized for a time following the death of her first son, John Jr.
James spent most of his early years on the Howlett Estate grounds with two playmates that lived at the estate with him: Rose O'Hara, a red-headed Irish girl who was brought in from town to be a companion to young James, and a boy nicknamed "Dog", Thomas Logan's son (and James's half-brother). The children were close friends, but, as they reached adolescence, the abuse inflicted upon Dog warped his mind. Dog made unwanted advances towards Rose, which James reported to his father. In retaliation, Dog killed James' puppy, leading to the expulsion of Thomas and Dog from the estate.
In the years that followed Silver Fox's death, Logan traveled all around the world, he became a soldier, a mercenary, an assassin, an outlaw, a spy, and a samurai, fighting in many wars. He met his master and father figure Lord Ogun, and fought with or against (or both) individuals such as Natalia Romanoff whom he trained in martial arts, the vampire hunter Eric Brooks, fellow mercenary Eugene Judd, Bucky Barnes, Nick Fury, and Captain America. Logan also met several that would became some of his fiercest enemies, such as Cyber, Mystique, Nuke, and Bloodscream.
After the end of World War II, Logan, under Ogun's advice, sought redemption for his past actions in Jasmine Falls, Japan, where he studied with Bando Saburo, in order to learn how to be a man and to leave his warrior nature behind. Here he fell in love with a local woman named Itsu. They married and conceived a child together which filled Logan with joy, but Itsu was murdered by the now brainwashed Bucky Barnes, a.k.a the Winter Soldier, under Romulus' orders.
Believing that both his wife and child were dead, Logan disappeared. To avenge their deaths he went to see an immortal swordsmith named Muramasa, who used a piece of Logan's soul to forge a mighty blade that Logan would claim years later. Logan was then retrieved by Romulus' organization and brainwashed once again, but unknown to him, Romulus also took the child from Itsu's womb and he was safely born and adopted by a Japanese couple. This child was named Akihiro, but he eventually took the name "Daken," meaning "Mongrel".
By 1961, Logan, known as Wolverine, now, joined the Weapon X Project, part of the Weapon Plus Program, which had been created to fight the mutant menace. He was then placed on the Black Ops squad run by the CIA, called Team X, with Sabretooth, Silver Fox (who surprisingly appeared to be alive and with no memories of her time with Logan), Maverick, Kestrel, and Mastodon. During this time, Logan and the others received memory implants via staged scenarios, telepathic manipulation by Aldo Ferro, and other technology. Weapon X also duplicated Wolverine's healing factor and implanted it in Team X, slowing their aging processes.
In 1966, Logan also helped Nick Fury deal with the Sym-Soldiers in Vietnam where he discovered the existence of alien life and was possessed for the first time by a symbiote.
In early 1968, Wolverine was called to report in a facility located in Dallas, Texas, where he was shot with Carbonadium bullets, which slowed his healing factor so that Weapon X or Romulus could know how to kill him. The bullets were removed but Logan awoke earlier than expected, and he regained his memories for the first time in years, because they hadn't been altered yet. Logan tried to keep the secret,and he rendezvoused with Team X in Berlin, East Germany where the team was sent to steal the Carbonadium Synthesizer in order to sabotage the Russian Super Soldier program and save Janice Hollenbeck, a double agent. After retrieving the device, the team was attacked by the product of this new Russian Super Soldier program, Omega Red. During the team's escape, Sabretooth, apparently aware that Wolverine had regained his memories, killed Janice to reinforce Wolverine's conditioning about innocents dying when he overstepped Romulus' boundaries. In the end, Team X was able to escape from Omega Red but it seemed the Carbonadium Synthesizer was lost.In truth, Wolverine was still in possession of the Carbonadium Synthesizer and decided to hide it from the rest of the team. After this event, Logan quit Team X in late 1968.
At some point, before leaving Canada, while in his Lotus Seven, Logan was pumped full of Thorazine, beaten, and kidnapped by a group of armed men from the Weapon X Project, possibly under Romulus' orders.The man known only as the Professor, Dr. Abraham Cornelius, and Dr. Carol Hines then began to examine Logan while he floated in a containment tank. Logan's skeleton, including his claws, was bonded with the indestructible metal known as Adamantium, making it unbreakable, and burying his personality beneath the most intense brainwashing he had ever undergone. Logan was then put under deep hypnosis, telling him that he was not a man or individual, and being a man disgusted him. Reduced to a near-mindless state, Logan was apparently forced by Weapon X to slaughter every inhabitant of the small town of Roanoke as a test. Logan proved to be too difficult for the Weapon X Program to control and, after some time, he broke free of the programming, fell into a berserker fury and escaped the facility, killing nearly everyone except for the Professor, Dr. Cornelius, Dr. Hines, and Malcolm Colcord, who later became the Director of a new Weapon X Program.
Unknown to Logan at the time, the Winter Soldier was apparently present and helped him escape from his captors.
As a result of having his bones and claws laced with the adamantium, Wolverine's natural mutation which was slowly turning him feral was put into remission as the adamantium precipitated a chemical change within his body. As a result of this experiment impeding his natural evolution, Wolverine's healing factor was weakened, and he healed slower than before. Wandering in the woods, Logan was eventually discovered by Heather and James "Mac" Hudson, a young couple honeymooning in the Rockies, whom he attacked, only to be shot by James. While he was recovering, Logan regained enough of his human persona to be horrified at his claws, believing them to be artificial implants. After recovering his mental faculties with the Hudson's help, Logan became a member of Canada's Department H the superhuman-oriented government agency James Hudson founded.
Sometime after, the Canadian military mobilized to fight the Hulk, but Wolverine received orders from Romulus to attract an unidentified party's attention by fighting the Hulk. Wolverine started a battle with the Hulk and a Wendigo. Wolverine then spent months completing some espionage missions until he was approached by Charles Xavier, attracted by Logan's fight with the Hulk (as Romulus expected) and looking for mutants to help his students, the X-Men, escape from the island-being known as Krakoa. Wolverine resigned from Department H to accompany Professor Xavier and rescue the captured X-Men. Logan remained with the X-Men for quite some time, but a rivalry grew between him and Cyclops, one of the reasons being that he had fallen for Scott's girlfriend, telekinetic telepath Jean Grey, who soon rejoined the group. Despite being at first skeptical of Xavier's hope for mutant and human coexistence, Wolverine began to respect his ideals, determination, and goals, growing into a loyal and trusted member of the X-Men. Wolverine also developed strong friendships with Kurt Wagner, Peter Rasputin, and Ororo Munroe.
