Young James "Logan" Howlett was born in 19th century Canada, where his mutant powers of increased healing factor and retractable claws didn't appear until adolescence, after which he became a drifter and soldier. Decades later he joined a black-ops organization called Weapon X, who submitted him to experiments which bonded the exotic metal Adamantium to his skeleton and claws. Remembering only escaping Weapon X and later joining Alpha Flight, Logan was approached with a chance to change the world, by Professor Charles Xavier, by joining his X-Men.

He was one of the many superheroes who joined S.H.I.E.L.D.'s alliance against villains after a mysterious Pulse hit the Earth and left a material called Isotope-8, desired by both heroes and villains.

When Apocalypse later abducted several X-Men and created a new team of Horsemen, it was revealed that Wolverine was one of several heroes to have previously fallen under his sway.[1]
