The short, hairy, surly mutant with claws and a weird haircut is the one of the most popular and enduring characters Marvel has. With the release of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, iFanboy takes a look at the history of Logan, and what makes him such a favorite.
When Wolverine first showed up in the pages of Hulk #180 way back in 1974, no one could have known that Len Wein and Herb Trimpe had introduced the most enduring comic book character since Spider-Man. When he joined the X-Men, and Chris Claremont and Frank Miller proclaimed him "the best he is at what he does," he took off in popularity, and hasn't let up since. A favorite guest star as well as a series regular in more than a handful of monthly comics, people can't seem to get enough of Wolverine. Josh, Ron, and Conor take a good look at some of the better stories involving the mean runt from Canada like his first mini-series, and Weapon X.
Hugh Jackman's performance in the X-Men films was a standout, and he brought Wolverine to life in a way that fans fell in love with. On May 1, we'll see the premiere of X-Men Origins: Wolverine in theaters, as the movies attempt to delve into Wolverine's secret and hidden past. This episode will let you know everything you need to know about everyone's favorite mutant.
