Wolverine by Mateo Scalero Wolverine Cover issue 5Wolverine


Wolverine is usually known as Logan, but born James Howlett, a mutant who possesses the sensing ability of an animal and a healing ability to recover from wounds and generally any physical harm whatsoever, even being torn to bits by Hulk. This ability is linked to his nearly-indestructible metal alloy adamantium skeleton.

He has been a long-time member of Marvel Comics' the X-Men, Alpha Flight, and also the Avengers.

Wolverine's first appearance was in the last panel of The Incredible Hulk issue #180 in 1974. Creation credit is with Len Wein and John Romita, Sr. who created the first design. Marvel artist Herb Trimpe was the first to actually drew Wolverine adventures.

Writer Chris Claremont and artist John Byrne further developed the character during their long run on X-Men, and the character was a key part in making X-Men a best-selling Marvel series, and then a still running series of movies from 20th Century Fox.

Wolverine is easily one of Marvel Comics' top five most popular characters.
