Powers/Abilities: Wolverine is a mutant with
heightened senses, razor-sharp claws and an incredible healing factor.
His skeletal system, including the retractable claws mounted in his
forearms, are coated with the unbreakable metal Adamantium. He is an
excellent hand-to-hand combatant and a savage fighter, as well as an
intuitive pilot and team player. Wolverine was
loaned a giant Stark-built humanoid mecha battle suit called a Mega
Morph that can
into a spaceworthy flying machine that is uniquely powered by his
Weight: 300 lbs.
(Mega Morphs: Wolverine mini comic (fb) - BTS) - Logan was born with razor-sharp claws, heightened senses and an advanced healing factor. His skeleton (and retractable claws) were later fused with unbreakable Adamantium and he became a deadly member of the mutant team, the X-Men, alongside Beast, Cyclops, Emma Frost and others.
(Mega Morphs#3 (fb) - BTS) - Wolverine, Spider-Man,
Hulk and Ghost Rider briefly formed the New Fantastic Four.
(Mega Morphs: Wolverine mini
comic (fb) - BTS) - Tony
Stark developed and built attack
vehicles that could transform into giant metal warriors uniquely
powered by the super-hero inside, but the plans were stolen by the
nefarious Dr. Octopus. Stark recruited Wolverine, Spider-Man, Hulk,
Ghost Rider and Captain America to stop the villain, each with their
own Mega Morph tailored to their individual power set.
(Mega Morphs: Wolverine mini comic) - Wolverine piloted his Mega Morph 700 miles above the Earth to where Dr. Octopus, in his own custom Mega Morph, was tampering with a satellite. Interference jammed radio communication between Logan and Stark, and a fierce battle between Wolverine and Dr. Octopus ensued. Dr. Octopus smashed the pilot canopy, expecting the mutant to suffocate, but being powered by Wolverine's super healing ability, it rapidly repaired itself, and Wolverine's mecha slashed back, forcing the villain's retreat, but his goal had already been achieved.
(Mega Morphs: Dr. Octopus mini comic) - Wolverine
joined the other four heroes in their Mega Morphs confronting Dr.
Octopus atop Mt. Everest, where he had assembled all the parts to a
weapon that began sucking away the powers of every super-powered being
on Earth, including those in the Mega Morphs. But Ghost Rider rallied
the heroes, emphasizing their willpower, and they fought back, smashing
the weapon, with Wolverine delivering the final blow with his Mega
Morph. However, the heroes realized that Dr. Octopus had not acted
(Mega Morphs#1) - Several
weeks later, Dr. Doom's machinations led to the Mega Morph squad being
reassembled. In his own Mega Morph, Captain America carried Wolverine's
to the Xavier Institute, which triggered the proximity alert. Quickly
changing, Wolverine seemed embarrassed to have had his giant Mega Morph
revealed before his teammates.
(Mega Morphs#2) - Each in their Mega Morphs,
Wolverine and Captain America joined Spider-Man and Ghost Rider in
successfully fighting off an army of giant Doombot mecha. They later grouped aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D.
Helicarrier, where they learned that Hulk had been coerced into freeing
Dr. Octopus and their own Mega Morphs. Wolverine thought roughing up
Dr. Doom might be an option to gain information but that was quashed by
Stark. Col. Fury then revealed Hulk and Dr. Octopus were being tracked
to Iceland, where the giant robot Red Ronin was hidden.
(Mega Morphs#3) - In their
Mega Morphs, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Ghost Rider and Captain America
rushed to confront Dr. Octopus, only to find the powerful Red Ronin
remotely controlled by Dr. Doom, who had betrayed his pawn Dr. Octopus. Combined attacks failed until Hulk,
now freed of Doom's mind control but still inside his Mega Morph,
helped stop the enormous robot. The heroes regrouped with S.H.I.E.L.D.,
but were suddenly alerted that Doombot signals had been detected,
heading for Washington, DC. The Mega Morph squad rushed to intercept.
(Mega Morphs#4) - The smaller Doombots had been built
to detonate when in proximity to any Mega Morph. As resilient as the
machines were, they still took damage until Stark overrode the signal
and made them return to their Latverian origin. The Mega Morph pilots,
Stark and Fury followed in a S.H.I.E.L.D. jet and confronted Doom.
Claws unsheathed, Wolverine wanted to attack Doom, but Fury stopped
him, recognizing the impending international incident it would cause
and how Doom was technically legally in the right. The heroes returned

Mega Morphs were
a 2005 toy
line developed by Toy
Biz incorporating Marvel characters and were
similar to Transformers in that they were humanoid in shape and, with a
few clicks and twists, could turn into a different machine, but unlike
Transformers, these Mega Morphs incorporated pilots (similar to Gundams
and other mecha). (Catch the exciting TV ad on YouTube!) The
Mega Morphs included mini comics (with nine models produced in total -
see image at right for Wolverine's; the red chestplate is the cockpit).
However, it was not confirmed that this took place on an alternate
Earth until 10 years later in Web Warriors.
Xavier's Institute for Higher Learning on Earth-50810
monument similar to that once created for the fallen Jean Grey on
Earth-616, so it's very
likely she once existed on this Earth too. There is also a picture of
what appears to be Charles Xavier on the wall inside the Mansion.
Spider-Man exaggerates that there are "twenty teams of X-Men", so you
can be sure there would normally be many more senior mutants at the
Xavier Institute than the four who responded to the alert in Mega Morphs#1.
Unfortunately, there's no clear full body shot of
Wolverine; the series focuses much more on the Mega Morphs.
I'm not 100% sure on the release dates of the mini comics (which came with the toys), but as far as I can tell, the first set was timed with the Marvel limited series. The first six mini comics and the Marvel limited series were later published in digest format.

from his Earth-616 counterpart due to their astonishing similarity.
Profile by Grendel Prime.
Wolverine of Earth-50810 has no known connections to:
Beast was a furry match for his later Earth-616 counterpart and presumably had advanced strength, agility, dexterity and intelligence (although his powers were not shown). He alerted the rest of the X-Men of the proximity alarm of the approaching "mechanized humanoid" (actually Wolverine's Mega Morph).
Before this, he was likely briefly depowered by Dr.
Octopus' weapon before it was destroyed by the five heroes in their
Cyclops paralleled his Earth-616 counterpart and presumably emitted constant concussive blasts from his eyes and demonstrated leadership abilities (although his powers were not shown). He joined the other available X-Men in confronting the intruder, only to find it was Wolverine's Mega Morph.
Prior to this, he was likely briefly depowered by Dr.
Octopus' weapon before it was eliminated by the five heroes in their
Emma Frost matched her Earth-616 counterpart and likely had the same telepathic abilities and the capability to shift into a diamond-hard form. She joined the other available X-Men when the intruder alert sounded, but was appalled at the "tawdry" look of Wolverine's Mega Morph.
Before this, she was likely briefly depowered by Dr.
Octopus' weapon before it was destroyed by the five heroes in their
