The man known
only as "Logan" was kidnapped by the Weapon X Program and became a
test subject. During his captivity, his skeleton was forcibly augmented with adamantium, an
indestructible metal. This gave him a super healing ability, making him
resistant to physical harm, chemicals and poisonous gasses. At one time, he
worked as a secret agent for the Canadian government but refused to follow
protocol and eventually went off on his own. After traveling on his own for
quite some time, Logan found his way to Professor
Charles Xavier's mutant academy, and joined the X-men. As part of the X-men,
Wolverine made some friends and enemies, and developed a strong
attraction towards Jean Grey.
His arch rival is Sabretooth.
As a child, Logan grew up on
a mining colony in Northern British Columbia. He left the colony and lived in the wilderness among
wolves for several years. When he returned to civilization, he resided
with the Blackfoot Indians. Following the death of his Blackfoot paramour,
Silver Fox, he was ushered into the Canadian military during World War I. Logan
spent some time in Madripoor before settling in Japan, where he married
Itsu and had a son, Daken.
