History

The history of this incarnation of Logan most likely largely mirrors that of his Earth-616 counterpart. Only a few key moments from his history are ever shown. An unknown amount of years ago, he was sent by S.H.I.E.L.D. to steal a Carbonadium synthesizer from a military facility in Siberia, where he first faced off against Omega Red.[1] Ten Years ago, Logan met and befriended Tesshin Asano in Japan. At another point in the past, Logan became a member of the X-Men as Wolverine. He also met and fell in love with Mariko Yashida. One night, while they where on a yacht in New York, they where attacked by A.I.M. soldiers.[2]

A year after this attack on the yacht, Mariko had gone missing, while Logan was still in New York. When Tesshin Asano came to New York to seek out Logan, Logan saved him from an attack by A.I.M.[2] Tesshin told Logan that Mariko was being held captive by her father, Shingen Yashida, and forced into a marriage with Hideki Kurohagi. Determined to rescue her, Logan accompanied Tessin to Tokyo, but found himself opposed by Shingen and his organisation, the Kuzuryu. The mission became more personal when Tesshin was killed, seemingly by Kikyo Mikage, an assassin hired by Shingen.[3] In his adventure, Logan gained a new ally in Yukio, who wanted Shingen dead because he killed her parents, but also found himself attacked by his old nemesis Omega Red. After disposing of Omega Red, Logan and Yukio followed Shingen, Hideki and Mariko to Madripoor.[4] After several more misadventures during which Logan fought the guardian statue Vadhaka,[5] and was tricked by Yuko's grandfather Koh to help him and his gang get to the Dragon Palace via Hell Road,[6] Logan reached the Dragon Palace.[7] There, he defeated Shingen in a last fight, but allowed Yukio to kill him so she could have her revenge.[8] With unexpected help from Kikyo, Logan made his way to the catacombs of the palace, where Hideki was holding Mariko prisoner. As a last effort, Hideki shot Logan with a poisonous dart that was supposed to kill him despite his healing factor, but Logan managed to pull the dart from his body before getting the entire dose and used the remaining poison to kill Hideki. Unfortunately, in the struggle, Hideki's gun went off and the bullet fatally injured Mariko, rendering all Logans efforts for naught.[8]

Later, presumably after his adventure on Madripoor, Logan and the X-Men had to fight Jean Grey when she went on a rampage due to losing control of the Phoenix Force. She eventually sacrificed herself in order to prevent herself from destroying the world. After her death the X-Men disbanded. A year later, Logan was contacted by Professor X, who decided to reform the X-Men. Logan was the first to join and helped him regain Cyclops.[9]

In Madripoor, he helped Blade and Makoto fight the assassin Lucius Issac. After Isaac's death he gave Blade information to find Deacon Frost.[10]
