Powers/Abilities: Wolverine is a mutant who's skeleton include six retractable foot-long bone claws, three in each arm. Wolverine possesses a healing factor which also increased his lifespan. While part of the Weapon X Program, Wolverine's skeleton was laced with the malleable but indestructible metal known as adamantium which allowed his claws to slice through virtually any material. Wolverine lost his right hand in an event involving Lady Deathstrike after which his lost arm was replaced with a mechanical one which had three laser-like claws to replace the former. Hit by a special virus target to eradicate mutantkind, Wolverine barely survived, his healing factor seemingly wiped out. Wolverine's healing factor has since returned albeit working more slowly than before.
Hair: Black, formerly white
(New Mangaverse: The Rings of Fate#4 (fb) - BTS) - Logan found himself targeted by the covert government Weapon X program. After they captured the woodsman, they laced Logan's skeleton with a malleable but indestructible metal known as adamantium. Logan only survived the lethal grafting process due to his healing factor.
(New Mangaverse: The Rings of Fate#2 (fb) - BTS) - Wolverine was romantically involved with Yuriko Oyama, however, when Wolverine ended the relationship she planned to get her revenge.
(New Mangaverse: The Rings of Fate#2 (fb) - BTS) - After becoming Lady Deathstrike, Oyama ran in with Wolverine. Now a dangerous assassin with ten razor-sharp claws she was partly responsible for Wolverine losing his right arm.
(Marvel Mangaverse: X-Men - BTS) - Wolverine's lost arm was replaced with a mechanical one which had three laser-like claws to replace the former.
(Marvel Mangaverse: X-Men (fb) - BTS) - Wolverine was in a romantically relationship with Jean Grey for some time, when the two broke it off Wolverine became involved with another member of the team; Moonstar.
(Marvel Mangaverse: X-Men (fb) - BTS) - When Wolverine learned a witches coven was destroyed by the electromagnetic demon Magnus he went to investigate. There, Wolverine found two survivors, the mutant sorceress Storm and the human sorceress Amanda Sefton. Wolverine, graciously offered both girls membership to the X-Men, but while Storm accepted Sefton didn't, feeling she was above humanity and mutantkind.
(Marvel Mangaverse: X-Men (fb)) - During a particular sunny day Wolverine and the X-Men enjoyed a day at the pool while one of their own, Rogue felt like an outcast.
(Marvel Mangaverse: X-Men) - When their team member Rogue had disappeared Wolverine and the X-Men decided to go and find her. Wolverine and Moonstar visited a local bar where they ran into the foul Nightcrawler who challenged them. But when Cyclops appeared to help, Nightcrawler realized he was outmatched and tried to teleport away but couldn't stop Wolverine from cutting off his blue tail. With the enemy gone Wolverine noticed Rogue's smell and threatened the bartender into revealing he'd seen her looking for the sorceress Amanda Sefton. Upon returning to the X-Mansion, Wolverine revealed what had transpired to Storm when Jean revealed she'd found Rogue's diary. Through the pages in her diary the X-Men learned Rogue had felt like an outcast even amongst the X-Men and was regularly visited by the electromagnetic demon Magnus who helped her to feel again and set out to find Sefton in an effort to help Magnus get a physical form. Hearing this news Storm immediately lost control letting her winds destroy the X-Men's living room while Wolverine and the others ducked for cover. Once Storm regained her senses she revealed the demon had been summoned to Earth years before by Sefton when they were part of a witches coven, who was destroyed by Magnus who couldn't be contained. The X-Men knew that Sefton would seize the opportunity to kill Magnus once and for all and feared she would go after their friend Colossus, since his metal body was the only one who could sustain Magnus. Determined to stop Sefton and Magnus they set out to locate her.
However upon arrival Wolverine and the X-Men were faced by Sefton who send her Azure (Beast, Nightcrawler and Mystique) to attack them. Eager for revenge Nightcrawler immediately jumped Wolverine who eventually managed to kill the teleported with his claws. Meanwhile Cyclops had killed Beast and Storm had killed Mystique, leaving the X-Men to face Magnus who'd already killed Sefton and now possessed Colossus' body. Horrified, the X-Men attacked Magnus, but thanks to the body of Colossus he easily managed to defeat the superheroes. In the end, he was defeated by Rogue who absorbed the powers of Storm and Jean Grey to separate Magnus from Colossus. Without a host form, Magnus dissipated into the atmosphere.
(Marvel Mangaverse: Eternity Twilight) - Learning of the impeding attack on Stark Island by the joined forces of the enormous Hulk, Namor and his Atlantean army and Baron Strucker's Hydra in an effort to summon the elder god Dormammu the X-Men decided to go and help. Upon arrival at Stark Island, Wolverine and the X-Men easily tore through the hordes of Hydra soldiers until Prince Namor himself attacked the team, keeping them busy enough that Baron Strucker could successfully summon Dormammu. Unable to defeat Namor themselves, the X-Men were rescued by the Fantastic Four, who amongst other heroes had joined the fight. However, with Dormammu's arrival the heroes seemed unable to stop or even harm him and the enormous Hulk. It wasn't until Doctor Strange realized Dr. Bruce Banner himself was a conduit to the Ethereal Realm they summoned the thunder god Thor to deal with the Hulk and his master Dormammu. He called upon the might of Wolverine and all other heroes to gather enough strength to defeat the enemy.
(X-Men: Ronin#1) - When their friend Jean Grey was attacked by the Shadowcat Ninja Clan, Wolverine, Cyclops and Storm arrived to rescue her. The Ninjas had been send by the Hellfire Club's Emma Frost who wished to recruit Grey into their ranks so she could secure her own promotion in the club's ranks. Wolverine and the X-Men easily killed the ninjas and rescued their own after which they returned to the X-Mansion. While Storm talked to Jean about the Hellfire Club, Wolverine and Cyclops started a Danger Room session fighting the Hellfire Club guards.
(X-Men: Ronin#2) - During the night the X-Mansion came under attack by the mutants Iceman, Pyro and Colossus all mind controlled by Frost, who was still eager to recruit Jean Grey. After a fierce battle Wolverine and the X-Men successfully defeated the mutants and incarcerated them in the mansion's cell complex. Of course Wolverine was chosen to interrogate Iceman and easily persuade the rogue mutant to reveal his mind was controlled by Frost. Determined to catch Frost, Wolverine left the X-Mansion the following morning and after a full day of searching he acquired her exact location from the strip joint Dazzler's after which he called in Storm and Cyclops. Wolverine, Storm and Cyclops confronted Frost in an alley near the Hellfire Club in the Hiro prefecture. Frost, however, was quick to reveal she wanted to recruit Jean since she could pass for human and shouldn't hang around evolutionary missteps like the X-Men. Frost then tried to escape the X-Men but was quickly pushed into a corner when the telepath cast an illusion in the minds of arriving police officers that the X-Men were bloodthirsty monsters and she an innocent schoolgirl.
(X-Men: Ronin#3) - While the police officers held the X-Men under gunshot Frost attacked Wolverine with a mindblast, seriously injuring the X-Man. In turn Cyclops fended off the police officers after which they brought the wounded Wolverine to their teacher Master Toad who lived in the cities sewers. While Toad took care of Wolverine the others were reminded they'd left Jean Grey to fend for herself in the X-Mansion and set out to get her as chief of police Shiro Yoshida was about to attack their headquarters.
(X-Men: Ronin#4 - BTS) - Wolverine recovered rather quickly after which he and Master Toad set course for the X-Mansion as Yoshida had sent his Sentinel Force to deal with the mutants.
(X-Men: Ronin#4) - Master Toad and Wolverine arrived just as Jean he tapped into an unearthly source of power with which she'd not only killed the police officers but also the three dangerous mutants who'd been incarcerated in the mansion's holding cells. The X-Men weren't allowed much time to talk as the towering Sentinel Force soon arrived. During the fierce battle Wolverine used his adamantium claws to tear through the metal robots while Toad convinced Jean to once again tap into her newfound powers. Wolverine watched as Jean manifested a giant fire bird with whom she easily destroyed all of the Sentinels. With their home in ruins Toad told the X-Men they needed to move.
(X-Men: Ronin#5) - Back in Toad's underground home Wolverine and the others watched as their teacher taught Jean to harness her chi. Unaware Yoshida had ordered the arrest of every mutant in the city, prompting the police to scan their citizens for a mutant signature, amongst them they tried to arrest Wolfsbane, Beast, Nightcrawler, Aurora and Northstar. Toad confided in Wolverine and told him that the Chi he sensed in Jean was nether human nor mutant. But before the duo could discuss the origin of Jean's Chi they were visited by the mutant ninja Psylocke an old friend of Toad who revealed Yoshida was actively arresting mutants. It was then decided that Psylocke would assist and help the X-Men to rescue mutants. Arriving in the city the X-Men quickly came across Sam and Paige Guthrie, mutant siblings who'd fought off the police force. Wolverine ordered Psylocke to take the youngsters back to Master Toad to keep them safe while Cyclops and Storm would continue to help young mutants and Wolverine and Jean set out to find Emma Frost and force her to fix the situation.
Wolverine and Jean located Emma Frost near the Hellfire Club where they confronted her. Once again Frost started her usual speech of how she only wished for Grey to join into the social club as associating herself with lesser-evolved being would lead to her demise. Continuing to explain that while the humans and freaks (those with physical mutations) would kill each other she and people like her would become part of the ruling class. However, when Wolverine made a comment Frost immediately attacked the man. Realizing there wasn't that much room left Wolverine pleaded Frost turn herself in to the cops to which she refused. Seeing no other alternative Wolverine killed Frost, much to Jean's surprise who'd hoped to end the situation peacefully.
Wolverine and Jean returned to Toad's underground to find the X-Men had rescued dozens of mutants. Wolverine then made a speech, telling the mutants that they would offer sanctuary but that at one point they had to strike back as one joined force, he continued they were a masterless clan, freedom fighter, rebels, RONIN!
(New Mangaverse: The Rings of Fate#2 (fb) - BTS) - After everything that had happened with the Hellfire Club and the Sentinels, Wolverine and the X-Men went underground for several years.
(New Mangaverse: The Rings of Fate#4 (fb) - BTS) - For years acting head of S.H.I.E.L.D. Nick Fury hated playing second fiddler to the superhuman community and together with a mind controlled Sharon Carter and the super powered ninja's of the Hand set out to kill all of Earth's costumed heroes. With access to all of Weapon X's data they developed a special virus to target and eradicate mutantkind.
(New Mangaverse: The Rings of Fate#2 (fb) - BTS) - Even in hiding mutantkind and the X-Men were hit hard. Presumably the only survivor of the X-Men, Wolverine, barely alive was found by Iron Man (Tony Stark's severed head attached to robotic body). Stark took Wolverine back with him to the ruins of Stark Island where he was placed in stasis to help heal him.
(New Mangaverse: The Rings of Fate#2 (fb) - BTS) - Wolverine was kept in stasis for two days when Stark discovered his healing factor had been completely wiped out.
(New Mangaverse: The Rings of Fate#1) - Still in stasis Wolverine finally regained consciousness to find an audience watching him: Stark and his partner the Black Cat (Felicia Hardy, who was secretly working for Fury) and the recently rescued Spider-Man (Peter Parker) and Spider-Woman (Mary Jane Watson).
(New Mangaverse: The Rings of Fate#2) - Wolverine was set free by Stark, prompting the others to notice the hairy mutant was rather naked. After trying to romance the red-haired Spider-Woman it was Parker who came to defend her honor but was easily taken by Wolverine who threatened to snikt the spider. In turn, Black Cat came to Peter's rescue, threatening to cut of Wolverine testicles. Seeing Wolverine's claws, Stark was reminded by an odd feature and ordered his visitors to stop and follow them. Stark then revealed the Hand had killed the Mandarin and taken his ten rings, his murderer being Wolverine's old flame Lady Deathstrike who'd carved an X into the Mandarin's body. The group, however, was interrupted mere moments later when the Invisible Girl and the lifeless body of the Thing of the Fantastic Four came crashing through the ceiling followed by Elektra and several ninja's of the Hand using the rings of the dead master criminal. Wolverine and the Black Cat instinctively popped their claws ready to face their assailants while the Invisible Girl provided Stark's severed head enough protection to done his full Iron Man armor. During the battle that followed Wolverine fought Elektra but none of the heroes could stop the ninja's from killing the Invisible Girl, after which the Human Torch (Jonatha Storm) entered the building as well and killed her sister's killer. The heroes, however, were unaware the ninjas were only distracting them while others stole the shield of the late Captain America (he'd been killed years before by Doom) that was in Stark's possession. After acquiring the shield Elektra and the ninja's took their leave to wonder what had just happened.
(New Mangaverse: The Rings of Fate#3) - Still reeling from the attack on Stark Island, Wolverine and the heroes were shocked to learn the true leaders of the Hand; Lady Deathstrike, Sunfire and the Silver Samurai had attacked and destroyed an American air-force base stationed in Japan, killing 3.000 men. Wolverine and the Human Torch were eager to go and fight fire with fire while the others tried to remain level-headed, fearing they were out of their league. However, when Wolverine noted he could lead the team the Black Cat cut his face open her razor-sharp claws, who in turn slashed one of Cat's hand's off, revealing them to be cybernetic. Enough of the fighting, Parker shot his webbing at Wolverine's claws, ordering him to stop, he then took his mask off and explained they shouldn't sit idle while others were dying as with great power also came great responsibility. The heroes decided to put aside their differences and go and fight the leaders of the Hand together.
Sometime later aboard Stark's ship, Wolverine suddenly received a kiss from the Black Cat who was rather jealous when she noticed Mary-Jane kissing Parker. Meanwhile Jonatha Storm wondered why her only kissing option was the robot, looking at Iron Man. Upon arrival Stark transported the team from the ship to the Hand's base, where they ambushed by the leaders of the Hand.
(New Mangaverse: The Rings of Fate#4) - During the fierce battle against the Hand, Wolverine was seriously burned by Sunfire while shielding Spider-Woman from his attack. After rather easily defeating the heroes they were tied up and introduced to the supposed leader of the Hand; S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Sharon Carter, who in reality was mind controlled by Nick Fury. Claiming to be responsible for targeting the superhero community, Carter even "revealed" that with the data gathered from Weapon X they created the virus that eliminated most of mutantkind. Wolverine grew enraged upon learning they were responsible for his friends' deaths, but still tied up, was unable to act. Just then Carter ordered the Silver Samurai to kill the heroes and walked away. But just before the Silver Surfer could kill Spider-Man a new female costumed adventurer dressed in Captain America's clothes arrived to stop him. The woman was in fact Air Force pilot Carol Danvers who, after her comrades had been massacred by the Hand surprisingly manifested super strength and had set out to stop them. Danvers easily held the Silver Samurai, Lady Deathstrike and Sunfire at bay while freeing the heroes.
(New Mangaverse: The Rings of Fate#5) - With reinvigorated energy the heroes fought the Hand, with Danvers and Wolverine closing in on the Silver Samurai. But just as it appeared that Spider-Man had acquired all of the Mandarin rings the heroes started to turn on their own. From behind the scenes Nick Fury used the remaining ring of mind control to take control of the heroes, it wasn't until Danvers plunged Captain America's shield into Iron Man's suit an electronic shock made Wolverine and the others regain their senses. Just as the heroes were apologizing for their behavior they noticed Sharon Carter affected by the electronic shock too. It soon became clear that she too had fallen victim to the mind control ring and was used as a pawn in the Hand's game. The heroes regrouped and once again attacked the Hand, Danvers and Wolverine joined forces to attack Lady Deathstrike. During the endgame, Spider-Man managed to kill the Silver Samurai by plunging a sword into his eye and brain. Iron Man and the Human Torch killed Sunfire by absorbing his flames, causing him to fall to his dead. While Danvers provided Wolverine with back-up he managed to cut Lady Deathstrike in half with his adamantium claws. With the threat dealt with Sharon Carter recovered the nine rings of the Mandarin, realizing that the mind control ring was still missing. Carter, however, was quickly forgiven by the heroes after which she asked Danvers to take up the mantle of Captain America, although noting she would have to get used to a Captain America with breasts. It was then decided the remaining seven heroes would stay together as the Avengers to find out who'd been pulling the strings the entire time, unaware Nick Fury was the true culprit.
(Deadpool: Too Soon? Infinite Comic#6 (fb) - BTS) - Wolverine joined the multiversal team of the Seething Snikters a baseball team consisting of Albert of Earth-616, Weapon X of Earth-295, Wolverine of Earth-811, Wild Thing of Earth-982, Mean of Earth-5311 and Wolvie of Mojoverse.
(Deadpool: Too Soon? Infinite Comic#6) - Wolverine and the Seething Snikters were send to Earth-616 where they played a friendly game of baseball against the multiversal Amazing Arachnids with the Sleepwalker acting as umpire. However, their game was interrupted by Deadpool who sought to warn Spider-Ham of the shadow-demon Paen-Umbra. The aggressive Snikters and the Spider-Men weren't too pleased and attacked the man but managed to escape.
Comments: Created by Ben Dunn.
Due to the Asian specific nature of the Mangaverse reality, it goes without saying that while characters might look similar to their 616 counterparts, they most likely will have distinctly different names, codenames or powers. Therefore we will only list the names when they have been used in the comics.
Mangaverse's Wolverine lost his right hand thanks to Lady Deathstrike and had it replaced with a mechanical one which had three laser-like claws to replace the former. While that sounds perfectly fine they made a bit of a mess in depiction it in the early Mangaverse comics.
Marvel Mangaverse: Eternity Twilight shows Wolverine with two normal hands but both with laser-like claws.
Marvel Mangaverse: X-Men, the issue's cover also shows him with two normal hands, both with laser-like claws. And inside the issue itself it's also a mess, some panels show him with a mechanical hand and some with normal hands.
Luckily all appearances after these depict him the correct way.
X-Men: Ronin introduced us to several doppelgangers of already established Mangaverse characters: a new Colossus, working besides Iceman and Pyro. He wasn't the same character as the already established Colossus. And amongst the mutants seen fighting police officers and later joining the mutant underground where new versions of the Beast and Nightcrawler who clearly weren't the same as those part of the Azure which were brutally murdered by the X-Men.
