History: (Exiles I#33 (fb)) - Following
experimentation by the Weapon X Program, who also secretly installed a
control chip in his adrenal gland, Logan was found wandering the woods
in a crazed state and was captured for Alpha Flight's Project: Lazarus,
in which Alpha Flight hoped to bring the so-called "Wild Man" back to
reality. Dr. Heather Hudson worked with Logan for an entire month,
eventually helping Logan regained his humanity. Logan soon began
training with the other Alpha Flight members, eventually becoming the
group's field leader. He soon befriended
Dr. Hudson and became her lover, marrying her within a year's time.
(Exiles I#66 (fb) - BTS) - Heather Hudson kept a
database of known superhumans with fast-healing abilities and included
Wild Man (also called Wolverine) on the list.
(Exiles I#33 (fb)) - Two years later, however, the Weapon X Program activated the dormant adrenal gland chip, driving the Wild Man insane. Wild Man ultimately had to be killed by his own wife in her Sasquatch form and Heather mourned the Wild Man's death for years.
(Exiles I#58 - BTS) - When Heather Hudson became
possessed by the spirit of the Great Beast Tanaraq while part of the
reality-hopping Exiles team, her teammate Morph of Earth-1081 took the
form of the Wild Man in an attempt to bring Heather back to reality.
Comments: Created by Judd Winick and Tom Mandrake.
This reality's Logan was referred to only as Logan
when Heather Hudson flashbacked to her life with him so it was not
stated that his real name was James Howlett like his Earth-616
counterpart, though it seems likely.
His height and weight were approximated from that of his Earth-616 counterpart, Wolverine.
Heather Hudson referred to Logan/Wild Man as
"Wolverine" while discussing him with an alternate reality Dr. Strange
in Exiles I#66. He was only called "Wild Man" in his only non-BTS
appearance in Exiles I#33, however, so I have named the profile "Wild
Man" with "Wolverine" listed as an alias. Perhaps Heather only referred
to Logan as Wolverine to Dr. Strange because she was aware by that
point, due to her experiences with the reality-hopping Exiles, that
Logan was called Wolverine in most realities and figured Dr. Strange
would recognize that name more...
