History: (Carnage: It's a Wonderful Life#1 (fb) ) - Ravencroft inmate Wolverine frequently clashed with fellow detainee Razorwire.

(Carnage: It's a Wonderful Life#1 (fb) ) - When Ravencroft was briefly taken over by corporate interests, Wolverina and Razorwire were set for release to a workfare program; however, Ravencroft's head psychiatrist, Ashley Kafka, and security director, John Jameson, knew they were too dangerous to be set loose on the public. They were loaded on to a van for transfer, but Kafka and Jameson did not tell their transporters that the duo needed to be sedated; as the van pulled out, both escaped and attacked each other, resulting in a fiery crash. While the van driver survived (but apparently lost a hand), the fates of Wolverina and Razorwire were unknown.

Comments: Created by David Quinn and Kyle Hotz.

This is a weird-one shot, even putting aside its journey into the twisted mind of Carnage - the privatization of Ravencroft is never mentioned again, and Kafka conspiring to kill two of her patients is extremely out of character. Jeez, she even kinda-sorta helped the Chameleon to escape from Ravencroft!

Carnage never specifies which of the two inmates is Cherry and which is Lola; he refers to them as "Cherry and Lola" and later "Wolverina and Razorwire", so I will assume that Cherry is Wolverina.

We never see Wolverina display any powers, but we get a "snikt" sound effect when she gets loose, so presumably she has Wolverine-style claws.

X-Force (M-Branch)'s OHotMU profile speculates that Wolverina may be that team's Wolverine (Ryan LaPorto) having transitioned to female. I'm a little dubious, myself - LaPorto would have had to undergone a tremendous amount of reconstructive surgery, given that the ersatz Wolverine looks like a bipedal hedgehog and Wolverina, as shown above, has a totally human physique and appearance.

As far as her needing to have massive reconstructive surgery, who's to say the change didn't evolve/progress that way? Check out how the Beast has changed over the years. Is that really such a stretch in the world of comics? He could have metamorphed into the initial form, then entered a death-like state in which he mutated into a more human, feminine form. Or, maybe he reverted to a more human form with powers and then had a sex change (gender reassignment) surgery.

Sorry about the teenisiness of the images, but they represent the sum total of Wolverina's on-panel appearances.
