Wolverine is a superhero and anti-hero published by Marvel Comics. First appearing in The Incredible Hulk #180 (October 1975), he is a Canadian mutant with retractable Adamantium blades, animal-like senses and the ability to regenerate almost every type of injury imaginable. He is best known as a member of the X-Men, serving as the field leader for the group's "Second Class" and his rivalry with team member Cyclops. First added to the Superheroes Unlimited mod in version 1.1, Wolverine was the first Marvel character to be added. His suit can be accessed through either the Hero Maker or Suit Assembly Unit and worn by the player, giving them many of his abilities from the comics.
Wolverine's true identity is James "Logan" Howlett, the son of Canadian farmers John and Elizabeth Howlett. Whilst growing up, James became friends with the grounds keeper of the estate, Thomas Logan. After he was fired from his position, Thomas returned late in the night and murdered John in a drunken rage. James, having witnessed this, was filled with uncontrollable rage, causing bone-like appendages to grow out of his hands, and stabbed him. As Thomas died, he revealed that he was actually James' father. Shocked from this experience and too scared to carry on living with his mother, James went on the run with his childhood sweetheart Rose, taking his father's surname as his own.
Over time, Logan would hold many professions, including a lumberjack, miner and soldier in many wars, including World War II. At some point, he joined the mysterious Team X, a military group of mutants that were used by the government on many missions. He would also volunteer for the experimental procedure that forced the metal alloy Adamantium into his skeleton. He survived, thanks to his healing factor, though the agency would wipe his memories and treated Logan like an animal. Eventually escaping, Logan lived in the Canadian wilderness for years, later found there by officials of the country's government. Although he was able to regain his humanity, he was unable to recover his memories.
Recruited by the Canadian government's intelligence office "Department H", Logan was given a yellow and black costume and the codename Wolverine, running missions for them and becoming the country's first official superhero. Eventually, he was sent to the X-Mansion to eliminate the X-Men and their leader, Professor Charles Xavier. Though he failed, he was offered a place on the new "Second Class" by the Professor, with him restoring memories in return. Wolverine accepted and soon became the leader of the group. He also became a history teacher at the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters, after living there for some time.
