(Sovereign Seven #2) - Wolverine visited the Crossroads,
a bar frequented by visitors from other realities, and found it
undergoing repairs following a recent battle. Taking a seat by the fire,
he called out to the superhumans clearing up and asked what it would
take for a guy to get a beer around here? In response, one of the
heroes, Cruiser, told him he could ask politely, and threw a beer at
him; catching it out the air, Wolverine thanked him and sliced it open
with a claw.
- Self-proclaimed world saviors, the alien Hyperclan rounded up
individuals they considered super-powered criminals, including Wolverine
and Doctor Doom, and executed them on live television.
Wolverine got better, either having survived thanks to his healing factor or perhaps resurrected during one of the DC Universe's irregular crisis reboots.
(Tales of the Unexpected II#6/2) - Wolverine shared a subway train with Clark Kent, Matt Murdock and Peter Parker.
Comments: Created by Chris Claremont, Dwayne Turner and Jerome K.Moore.
The Wolverine in Sovereign Seven might
be 616 Wolverine, since Crossroads was established to be accessible to
individuals from across realities; Kitty Pryde and Magik also popped by
in another issue. Similarly, reality was a bit off-kilter in the Tales
of the Unexpected story, so it's possible the subway train wasn't
carrying DC Universe individuals, but instead those of another reality
such as Earth-Crossover
or Earth-616 (which does have a Clark
Kent). However, for the sake of this entry I am ASSuming them all
to be appearances of the DC universe Wolverine.
There's no Earth number given for DC's Post-Crisis Earth because (1) it's DC's, not Marvel, and we mostly try to avoid numbering any other company or creator-owned realities unless they include Marvel content, and leave any reality designations to the people who own them, but even more to the point (2) the whole perpetual history rewrites at DC makes any attempt at numbering extremely confusing. For my money, Post-Crisis Earth is still pre-Crisis Earth-1, just merged with other realities (just like Age of Apocalypse/House of M/Age of Ultron/Excalibur: Weird War/etc. were 616 merged with other realities/with changed timelines until the mergers ended and they split off into their own realities and numbering while 616 mostly reverted back to the way it had been before). The way the merger was depicted in Crisis on Infinite Earths#12, the fact that some characters were confirmed to remember the old timeline (c.f. Psycho-Pirate, Earth-2 Superman, Superboy-Prime, etc.), and that some characters were eventually confirmed to originate from other pre-Crisis DC Earths but the timeline change had altered their histories/memories to make them fit their new world (c.f. Power Girl) strongly supports this imo. However, since it is only my view on the matter, I've not used the pre-Crisis numbering.
