James Howlett was born in the late 19th century. In his youth, before his mutant powers manifested, he was a rather shy and weak kid. While on a trip to New York with his father, James met a time traveling Jack Power and Franklin Richards. All three of them were captured by a street gang who wanted to ask a ransom for James, but they were rescued by the rest of Power Pack and H.E.R.B.I.E..[1]

After this incident, the history of this incarnation of James Howlett presumably largely mirrors that of his Earth-616 counterpart; his mutant powers allowed him to live an unnaturally long life. At some point, he took the name Wolverine and the alias Logan, had his skeleton and claws coated with adamantium, and joined many superhero teams including the X-Men and Avengers. As a member of the Avengers, he fought against Kang the Conqueror[2] and a rampaging Bruce Banner, in both cases assisted by the young superhero team Power Pack.[3]

The paths of Wolverine and Power Pack crossed several more times. When on the trail of the supervillain Sauron, Wolverine was forced to fight the young heroes, who had been hypnotized by Sauron into becoming his servants. After Wolverine broke the hypnosis, he teamed up with them to defeat Sauron.[4] Afterwards, Wolverine invited the four heroes to Xavier's Institute, and allowed them to train in the danger room. When the school came under attack from a group of Sentinels, Power Pack helped to defeat them.[5]

When Power Pack went to Japan because Alex was invited to participate in a game show there, they encountered Wolverine once more. At the moment, Wolverine was locked in a fight with The Hand because of some old samurai curse,[6] though he didn't give any details. Wolverine proved more than a match for the Hand, even after they used their magic to disable his mutant powers, and the ninja's eventually had to retreat.



Seemingly those of the James Howlett of Earth-616.
