Quotes by Akihiro (Earth-616)
- I never knew my father. I was raised... to be someone different than him. And now I'm supposed to be him. I never asked for that, but when the opportunity found me... I was curious. I wanted to know what it was like. To have people look at me and see... my father.

I have something I'd like to say. Please do me the courtesy of listening. These artifacts are my father's remains. My father's. I know you want what's let of him. To study, or to put to other uses. To worship. To revile. To revive. I don't care which. You shall not have them. You have no right to them. From this moment foward, let it be known-- Anyone who makes any move... any move at all, with intent to buy, sell, trade, or replicate any piece of the Wolverine...that person will die unfulfilled.
