He was kidnapped and had his mind wiped by an unknown agency, completely erasing his past and lining his bones with adamantium, Logan was trained to be the ultimate killing machine, Weapon X. After escaping the facility, the feral Wolverine was taken in by Heather Hudson and her husband James, members of Alpha Flight, a Government sanctioned group considered to be the Canadian equivalent of the Avengers. After helping him cope with his lost past, Wolverine joined Alpha Flight.

Feeling that the Canadians were using him as a weapon, he accepted Professor Charles Xavier’s offer to leave and join the X-Men, a group of mutant peacekeepers who fought for mutant rights. Instantly falling for teammate Jean Grey, Logan felt hostility towards her boyfriend Cyclops, the leader of the group.

When the X-Men learned that The Mutant Control Agency was kidnapping mutants using Sentinel robots, Wolverine lost two of his friends in the fight to stop the agency. Morph, his best friend who he believed dead, and Beast, arrested for breaking and entering.

He fought in a training simulation with Gambit in the Danger Room. He was attacked by Jubilee, who believed him to be attacking Gambit. After being defeated the mutant girl, Wolverine was laughed at by his teammates until he revealed his claws, in order to scare them.

Later, he went with the other X-Men to retrieve Jubilee after she was captured by Sentinels. Wolverine charged at several of the Sentinels before Morph told him to fall back and pushed him out of the way, allowing Morph to take the blast. He and the other X-Men were forced to leave Morph and Beast behind. After arriving at the Xavier Mansion, Wolverine was told by Cyclops that he understood how he felt before Wolverine came up to him and socked him in the stomach. He then went up to Cyclops' car and slashed the top of it off, dubbing it "A convertible". Later, He accepted Jubilee into the X-Men.

Beast later received a pardon from President Robert Kelly. Wolverine discovered that Morph was still alive, but was under a form of mind control from Mister Sinister, who implanted him with a device which triggered his hatred for the X-Men for abandoning him. Wolverine tried and failed to reach Morph, until the X-Men and Magneto defeated Mister Sinister, and Xavier removed the device from his brain.

He failed to attend Scott and Jean's wedding, due to his personal feelings for Jean. He took his anger out by fighting a model of Cyclops in the Danger Room. After defeating it, Wolverine was walked in on by Jean and the talked briefly before she went on her honeymoon with Scott.

It wasn't long before Wolverine was once again confronted by demons from his past. Uriko, a former love, returned to New York City as Lady Deathstrike to exact her revenge on him for leaving her behind years ago, as well as murdering her father, who was one of the scientists behind the original Weapon X program. Saving her from an alien taking over her body did little to change Yuriko’s feelings towards him, instead only leaving him with another enemy out there.

While traveling in Japan, Wolverine fought Silver Samurai and his minions.

He later received a mysterious envelope featuring pictures of his past he couldn’t recall seeing before. He flew to the coordinates left on the back of the envelope, hoping to finally learn the secrets to his past, and the mysterious Weapon X project which gave him adamantium skeleton and claws and he encountered his old friends, Sabretooth, Silver Fox, and Maverick. The four learned that they were taken against their will and had false memories implanted in their brains, meaning what they remember of their past may not actually be true. Leaving with more questions than answers, Wolverine returned to the X-Men continuing to fight for mutants' rights, hoping to make the world a safer place for both humans and mutants to come.


Wolverine was voiced by Cathal J. Dodd in all his appearances.

This was the first animated version of the character to be Canadian. Both the version from Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends and from "Pryde of the X-Men" played him Australian.
