Wolverine was the frail kid James Howlett who grew up with his friend Rose and Dog Logan. Then following the tragedy of his fathers' death at the hands of Thomas Logan, he discovered his mutation of bone claws, with which he murdered Thomas and left with Rose. They settled in a mining colony and James took the name "Logan". He grew feelings for Rose but then tragedy followed him as Dog came looking for him. Their confrontation led to the death of Rose and he fled.
Later he became a covert operative for Weapon X program, a secret Canadian government facility that experimented on him and gave him Adamantium implants over his bones. His very first assignment as a Weapon X operative was to face off The Incredible Hulk, who was rampaging at the Canadian wilderness. He crossed paths with Russian super-spy Black Widow and fought alongside American super-soldier Captain America before wearing his legendary blue and yellow spandex. Wolverine has quite a bit of history with Canadian superhero team Alpha Flight and many of it's members; especially Heather Hudson AKA Vindicator.

Today, the man known as Logan is an X-Man, recruited by Professor Charles Xavier, a man who saw through his animal nature and a hope for redemption for him. Using his keen animal like senses, a rapid healing factor and razor sharp claws, he fights to help protect a world that fears and hates mutants. Xavier picked him for the team along with fellow mutants Banshee, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Storm and Thunderbird to rescue his original recruits, when they were trapped in Krakoa.
The X-Men would get into trouble with the Hellfire Club very often, witness the crisis of Dark Phoenix and will get to know the Shi'ar Empire. Logan's occasional ventures in Japan would let him engaged to his love Mariko Yashida. He would also entangled with The Hand, Silver Samurai and Viper very often when he is there. Not only he has many allies like Spider-Man, Daredevil, Elektra, Punisher and many of the current and former X-Men, he also is a greatest enemy to the villainous Sabretooth, Mystique, Omega Red, Lady Deathstrike and Silver Samurai as well.
With his fellow X-Men members, Logan attempted to rescue the sewer-living underground mutants known as Morlocks when Mister Sinister plotted a "Morlock Massacre" and sent the Marauders to do the dirty work for him. As the X-Men confronted the hostile Marauders, things got ugly and Wolverine got into a deadly duel with Sabretooth for the first time wearing a costume. Feeling overpowered by Logan, Sabretooth ran from the sewers and decided to attack the X-Mansion, only to be opposed by Psylocke.
Fall of the Mutants
In absence of a recently-powerless Storm, Wolverine leads the X-Men to rescue Madelyn Pryor, who is Cyclops' wife and the clone of Jean Grey. He then went to Dallas, Texas, with his team to pursue a mutant criminal and is attacked by Freedom Force. In order to defeat their opponent Adversary, Forge had to cast a spell that cost the lives of all X-Men but they were later brought back to life again using Siege Perilous. The team of X-Factor faces the eternal mutant Apocalypse who offers to join him in his war against humans or to be destroyed.
When Professor Xavier took his team on space station Avalon to stop Magneto and his evil plan like always, the lunatic master of magnetism ripped off Wolverine's Adamantium and left him in a feral state when he got stabbed in the guts. This shocking incident led Xavier to unleash his power on Eric and left him on a vegetative state. Wolverine barely survives the experience and was having a hard time healing his wounds. He has devolved into a bestial form and since now he cannot heal so easily, he decided to hon his skills once again by training with Elektra.
After Xavier attempted to wipe out Magneto's consciousness, he unknowingly absorbed the dark essence of Eric's mind and eventually become the psionic being Onslaught. It claimed to be Xavier himself but Wolverine then angered him by pointing out that he looks more like Magneto, causing Onslaught to attack them all. It took all the combined efforts of The Avengers, Doctor Doom, Fantastic Four and the X-Men just to contain the threat. Afterwards, Logan remained in his animal-like state for quite some time as the absence of Adamantium in his system have accelerated his mutation further.
Horseman of Apocalypse
During Phalanx Invasion, he and Cable aided their teammates to go free from the aliens upon Professor Xavier's calling. Genesis decided to bond Wolverine with Adamantium and send his Dark Riders to capture him. The process however, was a failure and it cost them all of their lives at the hands of a feral Logan. Then Apocalypse kidnapped him and pits him against Sabretooth to determine who would be his next Horseman of Death. Wolverine easily won and received Adamantium implant before going against the X-Men but then he broke out of Apocalypse's influence and rejoins his friends.
One of the Skrulls from Apocalypse's allies impersonated Logan for long but got killed by the real one. Logan will return to Madripoor to battle his old mentor Ogun, who now has become a possessed spirit and then get a divorce from Viper, to be finally free from his debt. He also learns of having a psychotic son named Daken who operates under the name Dark Wolverine and has almost the same abilities to match. Later, Logan heavy-heatedly witnessed the "Death of Jean Grey" at the hands of Xorn, whom he decapitated only moments after this act.
Enemy of the State
Allied together with a nefarious plan to take over the world, The Hand and Hydra sent the mysterious assassin Gorgon to kill Wolverine and then they brainwashed him into one of their own killer. He ended up seriously gutting Spider-Man and The Thing, as well as both Hornet and Northstar were killed by him while working under Hydra's influence. S.H.I.E.L.D. then hired Elektra to bring him in and it got bloodier and messier as they tried to do so. After Elektra was defeated, it took several attempts for him to finally get back at Gorgon and put an end to the conflict.
House of M
Apart from being a valuable member of the X-Men, Logan also is a member of the New Avengers team along with few other members that was formed after the original team was disbanded during 'Avengers Disassembled'. Then a mentally unstable Scarlet Witch unleashed a reality where mutants rule supreme and no one had any memory of it. With a mutant Master Race ruling over Earth, everyone on that world became whatever they wanted but Wolverine could still remember everything. When the nightmare was finally over after a lot of trouble, many of world's mutants were rendered powerless (M-Day).
Upon regaining his memory after "House of M", he visited the old Weapon X program and encountered the Winter Soldier, learning of his deranged son Daken's existence. When the infamous "Stamford Incident" caused a Civil War among the superhero community, Wolverine decides to go after the villain Nitro as a part of his personal vengeance in this time of crisis, who was actually responsible. He then assembled Warpath, Wolfsbane and his clone X-23 to form the new X-Force team for covert operations.
Logan was back with the X-Men when Mystique joined the team and together they battled against the Children of the Vault (Supernovas) and then was savagely defeated by the Marauders that Mister Sinister had sent after them (Blinded by The Light). After that, he and X-Force were sent after Cable to locate the baby messiah that everyone was desperately looking for. Members of Marauders, Pirifiers and Reavers were slaughtered in the ensuing conflict and Wolverine went up against Predator X when the beast showed up. He allowed himself to be swallowed by it and then tore it from inside out.
His old friend Maverick from Weapon X days later brings him in to repeal the threat of Strikeforce X, a group of Adamantium Men created by a shady corporate organization named Blackguard. Wolverine had a faceoff with these merciless killers with healing factors and laser claws but in the end, Logan turned out victorious. He tipped off reporter Melita Garner and she exposed Blackguard to the rest of the world. Afterwards Logan took down Deathlok cyborgs from an alternate future alongside Captain America to prevent a future without any super-heroes to defend it (Tomorrow Dies Today).
Wolverine Goes to Hell
Logan's old buddy John Wraith is a pastor now, who finds his body and Wolverine realizes that his soul is in Hell while his possessed self was killing people. In Hell, he met Satan, fought Hand and eventually faced off his arch nemesis Sabretooth. The shape-shifting mutant Mystique joins Ghost Rider and Daimon Hellstrom in their quest to retrieve his soul form Hell. While the X-Men were busy fending off "Hellverine", Logan was fighting Satan in Hell. As the demons of his mind were incinerated by Phoenix, he returns and plans to take revenge on the Red Right Hand, who were responsible for sending him there.
Wolverine assists Cyclops to international arms control conference for a speech about de-commissioning every active Sentinel, where Kid Omega releases an energy blast on everyone to force them into revealing their secrets. This reveals that the world still doesn't trust mutants and X-Men's stand over the issue creates a rift between Cyclops and Wolverine. Opposing Scott's idea of raising young mutants as soldiers in this battle, Logan quit the team and founded the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning.
Following the conflict of ideals between Cyclops and Wolverine, the team of X-Men is separated into two fractions. Beast, Cannonball, Husk, Iceman, Rogue and Shadowcat joined Logan in Jean Grey School, Westchester, while the others remained with Cyclops's side on Utopia. On their first day of school, the new Black King of the Hellfire Club, Kade Kilgore comes to their doorstep with threats but Wolverine makes it clear that he wants none of it. When Krakoa comes to attack, Kid Omega talks him down and convinces him to join Wolverine's X-Men.
Avengers Vs. X-Men
Upon Nova's arrival on Earth with the news of the return of Phoenix Force, Wolverine informed Cap that the Phoenix is connected to Hope Summers. Though Jean Grey School didn't side with any party, Logan aided Cap and The Avengers when they attacked Utopia. As he was about to kill Hope upon finding, she burnt him down using the powers of the Phoenix before escaping. Later, he helped her reach the moon after forming a truce but finally tipped The Avengers about their whereabouts to apprehend her, which didn't go too well in the end.
Infected by a Microverse virus while working on a rescue mission for S.H.I.E.L.D., Wolverine lost his healing factor. In order to prove himself, he fought Black Panther but was defeated and then his embarrassment extended when he was being saved by Kitty Pryde. Sabretooth have captured him and gave him a severe beating before he decided to decapitate Logan but then walked away knowing his enemy is broken. He accepted the fact that he cannot heal anymore and therefore he no longer is "Wolverine".
After leaving Avengers team and Jean Grey School behind, Logan joined a band of mercenaries working for a mob boss known as The Offer. They were after Victor Creed's location so that they could stop him from changing reality but Creed turned the table by kidnapping his teammate Pinch's daughter. Logan trains with Iron Fist and Shang-Chi to hone his martial art skills and then he has a meeting with Mistress Death.
Death of Wolverine
Mister Fantastic asks Logan not to fight for the time being until his healing factor can be reactivated but A.I.M. agents, mercenaries and ninjas seem not to leave him alone. Upon learning Viper has put a contract on him, he visited her on Madripoor only to battle her captured "pet" Sabretooth as she wanted one of them dead. After Logan lost an eye in the fight, Lady Deathstrike attacked and took down Victor. Turns out, she is not here to save him but collect a bounty on Logan like Viper.
The timely intervention by Kitty Pryde saved him from the clutches of his enemies and together they traveled to Japan, looking for Lord Ogun. When Kitty kissed him and started taunting about Jean, Mariko and Rose, Logan realizes that she is possessed by Ogun. Before freeing herself, Kitty learns that Abraham Cornelius put the contract on him. In Paradise Valley, he met Cornelius, who was still experimenting on test subjects. To save the new subjects, Logan took it all on him and then killing Cornelius before he died covered in liquid Adamantium.
