Here are some things you should know about Wolverine.
Wolverine is one of the most popular characters in comic book history. A lot of that has to do with his attitude. Logan more than the angry little man with impulse issues. He has been alive for over a hundred years and along the way he has been a lot of different people, doing more interesting things than people will ever know. He’s developed a love for foreign cultures, he’s a romantic, he’s been to Hell and back (literally) and so much more.
There is a lot you probably don’t know about Wolverine. With that in mind, here are ten cool facts about the iconic X-Men character that the novice fan may not be aware of.
10. Matsu’o Tsurayaba
Comic book: Wolverine No. 57
Matsu’o Tsurayaba poisoned the love of Wolverine’s life, Mariko Yashida. Rather than a slow and painful death, Mariko asked Logan to kill her with his claws. Logan reluctantly agreed and, after that, he vowed revenge on Matsu’o Tsurayaba for what he had done.
Wolverine vowed to take a part of Tsurayaba’s body every year on the anniversary of Mariko’s death. Tsurayaba thought it was a false threat. That was until Wolverine showed up and cut his arm off. The following year, he removed Tsurayaba’s ear. This continued every year until Logan was temporarily dead. What’s funny is the year that happened, Tsurayaba was going to beg for mercy or take his own life.
9. Wolverine was born a sickly kid
Comic book: Wolverine: Origin: The Hill No. 1
The Logan we know now isn’t how he was originally. He was born James Howlett into a wealthy family. He was also a sickly child. It left him unable to play like normal kids his age. He couldn’t even go into the water without his skin getting blotchy. When you think about it, it was like his body was developing an immunity to everything, perhaps in its own away preparing him to have a healing factor. Soon after, he popped his claws for the first time.
He was immediately thrown into harsher situations in life after that. He never got sick again. Well, barring shenanigans with viruses tailor-made for him.
