History: (X-Men: The Animated Series
cartoon episode - "Days of Future Past, Part 1" (fb) - BTS) - After
most of the X-Men were killed as Sentinels took control of the country,
Wolverine remained a rebel, battling the Sentinels.
(X-Men: The Animated Series cartoon episode - "Days of Future Past, Part 1") - Circa 2055 A.D., Wolverine was assisting two young mutants when Wolverine scouted ahead. Mutant-hunting Sentinels soon appeared and while the young mutants took out two of the robots, a returning Wolverine took down a third, remarking that he used to take the "tin cans" out in half the time and that he must be getting rusty. The trio was soon confronted by the mutant tracker Bishop, who attacked the mutants. After Bishop took down Wolverine's two allies, Wolverine himself jumped at Bishop, dodging several shots from Bishop's energy gun until finally getting downed by a blast. Despite angrily trying to stay conscious, Wolverine passed out and later awoke aboard Bishop's flying vehicle, where he immediately tried to escape his holding area, only to find the bars electrified. Bishop remarked that Wolverine healed pretty fast for an old guy and Wolverine asked if he knew Bishop from somewhere, but Bishop brushed off Wolverine's remarks as an attempt to trick him, announcing that Wolverine's attempt was a good try but he was on his way to a mutant termination camp. When Bishop arrived at a Sentinel base to turn in the captured mutants, Wolverine asked when Bishop was going to wake up and see that the Sentinels wished to terminate all mutants but Bishop insisted they only wanted to terminate the rebels. Wolverine then watched as Bishop was told by Sentinels that his mutant recovery quota had been reached and he was no longer needed. The Sentinels then attacked and Wolverine was having to carry his young mutant allies as Bishop was also taken into custody. As the Sentinels led Wolverine and Bishop into a camp, Wolverine's young mutant ally awoke but Wolverine whispered for her to be quiet shortly before Wolverine was led past a mutant graveyard where his former teammates in the X-Men were buried, Emotionally bothered by seeing the graves of his friends, Wolverine grumbled as Bishop referred to the X-Men as legends. Wolverine's young ally took that time to attack their guard Sentinel with an energy blast and Wolverine quickly joined the fight, donning his mask and ordering the "rookie" Bishop to move quickly, as the fight wasn't a dress rehearsal. Wolverine jumped onto the fallen Sentinel and began slashing away, only to be grabbed by the Sentinel and squeezed until he passed out, prompting Bishop to finally join the fight.
fight soon drew the attention of the super-Sentinel Nimrod and a
recovered Wolverine prepared to fight by his young mutant ally instead
told Wolverine to leave, giving him a cylindrical object and
reminding him about their mission. Reluctantly agreeing to go,
Wolverine departed with Bishop as Wolverine's two allies fought Nimrod.
Shortly thereafter arriving at a hidden mutant rebel base, Wolverine
introduced Bishop to Forge, who remarked that they must hurry. Further
remarking on Wolverine's injuries, Forge inserted the cylinder into the
rebels' working time portal. With the portal now activated, Wolverine
asked if Forge had the "transponder" and Forge sternly reminded
Wolverine that it was called a temporal transceiver and wearing it
would ensure Wolverine arrived in the specified time period and would
keep him there as long as he wore it. Wolverine then turned to Bishop
and ordered Bishop to make sure Forge destroyed the time portal after
Wolverine went into it to ensure no one followed him into the past.
When Bishop asked Wolverine how he planned to return, Wolverine
announced that he wasn't returning before grabbing an energy blaster.
He then revealed that he would stop the assassination by stopping the
assassination, explaining that he knew precisely who he was going after
when Bishop questioned Wolverine's actions. Unsure whether Wolverine
could pull the trigger on an X-Man, Bishop grabbed Wolverine's blaster
and transceiver, announcing that he would go instead as Sentinels found
the rebel base. When Bishop remarked that the older Wolverine couldn't
handle Bishop, much less the X-Men in their prime, Wolverine popped his
claws and prepared for a fight until Forge held Wolverine back,
commenting that Bishop was right. Angry that he was considered too old,
Wolverine remarked that he would remember this before rushing off to
fight the invading Sentinels. As Bishop jumped into the time portal, he
witnessed Wolverine and Forge getting shot down by Sentinels moments
before he was transported into the past of Earth-92131. Later, when
battling the X-Men of Earth-92131, Bishop recognized Wolverine,
recalling Wolverine-31393's promise to remember being passed over due
to his age. Once Bishop was calmed and Professor X read Bishop's
memories, he saw images in Bishop's mind of Earth-31393 and Wolverine,
prompting Wolverine-92131 to comment that he at least still had his

Wolverine's real name and physical height and weight are presumably the same as his Earth-616 counterpart.
While not specifically stated, Earth-31393's
Wolverine was likely previously a member of the X-Men, as he appeared
emotionally affected when he passed the X-Men's graves, especially when
he saw Jubilee's.
To explain what is a potentially confusing timeline,
Earth-31393 is the "Days of the Future Past"-like reality seen at the
beginning of "Days of Future Past, Part 1" in which Sentinels have
overtaken the country, Wolverine is a mutant rebel and Bishop is a
mutant tracker turned rebel. It is the home reality of the X-Men animated
series' Bishop. When Bishop-31393 returns to the future following the
prevention of the assassination of Sen. Kelly, he actually arrives in a
different reality, Earth-13393, in which the assassination was
prevented but the future still became a dystopia due to a
then-unforeseen factor (a mutant plague). This is also the home reality
of the animated series' Cable but earlier in the timeline before
Cable's time. Eventually, the mutant plague ravages the future of
Earth-13393 but Cable returns to present-day Earth-92131 to find a
solution. Bishop-31393 also returns to Earth-92131 during that
storyline and at first stops the release of the plague, which creates
the future reality of Earth-121193 in which mutations raged out of
control. Cable then travels back to Earth-92131 again (at a point prior
to Bishop's prevention of the plague's release) to ensure the plague's
release and the creation of antibodies to protect mutants from the
plague, which then creates the future of Earth-121893, a future devoid
of Sentinel rule in which Bishop-31393 returns to (as well as the home
reality of the animated series' Trevor Fitzroy) and a future that
resembles Cable's original reality of Earth-13393, only without the
mutant plague. Make sense? I chose to explain this because we see
Wolverine's skeleton at the end of "Days of Future Past, Part 2" but it
needed clarifying that this is actually the skeleton of Wolverine-13393
and not Wolverine-31393. Also, the Forge that Bishop-31393 encounters
at the end of that episode is Forge-13393 and not Forge-31393.
