This is an abridged version of Logan's history. For a complete history see Logan's Expanded History

Preface

This Logan's life was originally thought to be identical to that of the primary iteration of the Wolverine; however, there has been new evidence released contradicting this, such as the fact that he recalled fighting in the War of 1812[8] while the Logan of Earth-616 was allegedly born during the 1880s.[9] Like his Earth-616 counterpart, Logan seems to have experienced the same Weapon X experiment that laced his skeleton with Adamantium.[10][11][12]

Wastelands

Before the Uprising

At some point in his history, most likely before the night the heroes fell, Logan spent 20 years in the Astral Plane before killing the Shadow King.[13]

Killing the X-Men

On the night that the heroes fell and the villains gained control, Wolverine was at the X-Mansion with Jubilee receiving an emergency signal from the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D., the Fantastic Four, Wakanda, and everywhere else.

Realizing he killed the X-Men.

The Mansion was then seemingly invaded by a group of super-villains, many of whom were believed dead. Wolverine began to evacuate the younger students while the rest of the X-Men mysteriously vanished after the onslaught began. After killing nearly all of the villains, the fight came down to Wolverine and Bullseye. After finally finishing him off, Bullseye was then revealed to be Jubilee. Mysterio appeared and the illusion was swept away: Wolverine, while under Mysterio's illusion, had slaughtered the X-Men. Stricken with grief, Wolverine ran into the wilderness and was unable to account for his time there. He then attempted to commit suicide by laying his neck on the train tracks as a train approached. The attempt failed, but he decided that the "Wolverine" was dead anyway. He put the violence of his past behind him and simply went by "Logan" thereafter.[14]

Logan roams the Wasteland.

Meeting Maureen

Logan then roamed the continent of North America for years, until he arrived at the Weapon X Facility, which was settled by a group of survivors. Thinking that he was a spy of some sort, they beat Logan until Maureen stepped in and stopped them. She then showed him around their camp and introduced herself to him.[15] Logan and Maureen soon developed a romantic relationship, and lived happily until their base was attacked by super-villains, and they were forced to flee to Japan.[4]

However, they were soon kidnapped by a group of ninja called the Silent Order, resulting in Logan being stabbed in the neck. This ended up revealing to Maureen that he had regenerative abilities.[16] With their interest piqued, the Silent Order ninja took Logan and Maureen to their leaders, Sohei and the Silent Monk.[17] Logan, after having the Silent Monk look inside his head, broke free of his restraints, and killed everybody in the Silent Order.[18] Maureen was horrified at what Logan had done, but ultimately accepted it because it was for the greater good. She then told him that she wanted to go back to North America and also that she was pregnant.[18]

Logan, afraid of what would happen to his new family if his life continued to be filled with violence, promised Maureen that he would never be the Wolverine, or kill, ever again. They then went back to Amerika, and settled down in an abandoned barn in California.[19]

Road Trip

For over a decade, Logan refused to pop his claws and became a farmer and family man, living in Hulkland - formerly known as Washington, Oregon, California, and parts of Nevada - with the Hulk Gang as his landlords. After failing to pay his month's rent, his children offered to sell their toys. Logan refused to sell his children's toys to pay for the rent; however, and realized that he would be unable to pay, and that the Hulk family would not accept a simple plea to pay double next month.

The Hulk Gang arrived the next day to confront Logan on his lack of payment, and violently beat him, mocking his inability to fight back despite once having been the most violent of superheroes; though Logan entertained visions of gutting the eldest Hulk brother, he remained calm and took his beating, to the disappointment of his son, Scotty. Healing from the injuries in bed during the night, though very slowly due to his age; Logan was confronted by a blinded, elderly Hawkeye. In order to pay off his rent, Logan accepted a job from Hawkeye: help him to navigate across the country and deliver a secret package, possibly illegal.

The next morning Logan said goodbye to his wife and children. They left in the vehicle once known as the Spider-Mobile, newly customized by Hawkeye for a long trek. Hawkeye was in the driving seat; despite his being blind, the vehicle was still his, and Logan's purpose on the journey was to help him stick to the right direction.

Amerika from Wolverine Vol 3 66 002

The Wasteland

Turning on the car's Satnav, Logan saw a map of Amerika, now a land dominated entirely by super-villains, who have renamed cities and areas for themselves, with names such as "Lair of the Creel Gang", "The Lizard King's Domain", "Paste Pot Creek", "Hammer Falls", "Osborn City", "The Kingdom of the Kingpin", and "Doom's Lair". The route plotted for the two old men went straight through the heart of Amerika.[6]

They passed San Francisco, where Moloids had devastated the area. A biker gang, calling themselves the "Ghost Riders", attacked the two partners and tried to see what Hawkeye was carrying in the Spider-Mobile's trunk. Logan took a beating from the gang, and Hawkeye killed them all. When asked why he didn't defend himself, Logan had a brief flashback which revealed a massive beating from Wild Child, Apocalypse, Omega Red, and Mr. Sinister. The pair then traveled to Hammer Falls, formerly Las Vegas, where people gathered to pray for the return of the heroes. There, an Ultron robot told Clint his third wife, who was also Spider-Man's youngest child, was waiting for him: their child had gotten the idea of assuming the mantle of Spider-Girl and went to confront the Kingpin, where she would soon be executed.[20]

Logan and Hawkeye headed for Fisk Lake City to rescue Spider-Girl who attempted to defeat the Kingpin with the help of Daredevil and the Punisher. In an arena filled with cheering spectators, the new Kingpin, after stating that he had killed Magneto because he got too old, and took his turf, had the two executed by feeding them to dinosaurs.

Wolverine Vol 3 67 Textless

Logan and Hawkeye.

After crashing the Spider-Mobile through the side of the building holding Spider Girl, Hawkeye killed all of the guards without the help of Logan. The Kingpin arrived as Hawkeye freed his daughter. But upon being freed, she killed the Kingpin and turned on Hawkeye, revealing that she was in fact only interested in ruling over the Kingpin's turf. As Spider-Girl prepared to kill her father, Logan looked on. Having only accompanied Hawkeye to the end of helping his family out their financial rut and having taken a vow of pacifism, refusing to so much as pop his claws for the last several decades, Logan reluctantly prepared to step into the conflict, saying before he did, "Damn you to Hell for making me do this, Hawkeye."[5]

Logan then proceeded to drive the Spider-Mobile through the site of the brawl, where he grabbed Hawkeye, and crashed out the side of the building, and the two made a break for it. Spider Girl then ordered her new minions after them, and soon Logan and Hawkeye were being chased down by at least fifty cars, some with raptors. Before they could gain on the two heroes, the Moloids collapsed the ground around them, swallowing them into the Earth.

Logan awoke a few hours later, thousands of feet underground. He activated a glow-stick, and saw that the Moloids had devoured everyone except Logan and Hawkeye. He then helped Hawkeye out of an overturned Spider-Mobile, then got back in, and used the Spider-Mobile to drive up the wall underground and out of the chasm. They then proceeded to drive cross-country, back on their route. On their way, they passed through Paste Pot Creek, Wyoming, home to dinosaur imports from the Savage Land; Electroville, where a collapsed Baxter Building lay over the giantic skeleton of Loki; and South Dakota, where the Red Skull, new president of the United States, had his face on Mount Rushmore, and also home to a hostless Venom symbiote.

They then made their way to Iowa, where the two stopped at a bar for a drink. It was here that Logan revealed that he's only doing this for the money to pay the rent for his family. He said he didn't get excited by death anymore, and didn't want to go back to the way he was, that he said he was afraid to. That statement triggered a flashback of Wolverine, costume torn and bloodied, standing over the dead bodies of Omega Red, Mister Sinister, and Lady Deathstrike. A man then came over and was about to joke about the two heroes' "heart-to-heart" when Logan tackled him and put his fist under his jaw, tempting him to make a joke. He then stormed out of the bar, after being stopped by Hawkeye. Clint, frustrated and curious, begged Logan to tell him what happened to him. Logan then agreed to tell him his story about what happened to him on the night the heroes fell.[21]

After the flashback, Logan and Hawkeye set out back on their journey. They come across a young boy named Dwight wearing Ant-Man's helmet and asking for a toll of eighty cents to cross a bridge. If they didn't pay he would have the ants take care of them ,to which Logan replied, "Is this a joke?" Hawkeye paid the toll and told Logan the kid was serious and that it's eighty cents well spent. As they drove over the bridge several corpses were seen under it. They continued on past a herd of dinosaurs while a Venom symbiote controlled Tyrannosaurus rex followed behind them.[14]

They noticed the T-Rex and attempted to shoot at it while being monitored on a security screen by Emma Frost. She sent Black Bolt to stop the Venom T-rex with his vocal powers, and after repairing the Spider-Mobile, Emma allowed Logan and Hawkeye to continue with their journey.

Upon reaching their destination of New Babylon, formerly Washington, D.C., and now covered in all areas with propaganda by the Red Skull, Hawkeye revealed that the box contained ninety-nine samples of the Super-Soldier Serum to be used by members of an underground resistance to form a new group of Avengers to tackle the villains. Hawkeye's price for delivering the package was that he wanted to be given one of the samples so that he could join the new Avengers. Unfortunately, the resistance movement was a hoax and the whole deal was part of a sting operation by S.H.I.E.L.D., Logan was gunned down by the undercover S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives, led by Tobias, and Hawkeye was then killed.[22]

Logan and Hawkeye's bodies were then brought to the Red Skull's trophy room at the White House. Logan's healing factor prevented him from dying and he slowly healed from the bullet wounds. One of the goons was about to tell the others, but was kicked in the family jewels and knocked unconscious as Logan got up and began beating the life out of Tobias and his goons.

The Red Skull sealed the room and began mocking Logan, how he was a pacifist and a coward, and that he should crawl back into whatever hole he had hid in, even mocking the fact that Logan wouldn't pop his claws. Logan began throwing the Red Skull through his display cases, spewing hero memorabilia everywhere. The Skull got his hands on the Ebony Blade, and came at Logan, just as Logan was able to grab Captain America's Shield, and deflected the blow. Logan got the best of him, and was standing over the Skull ready for the kill.

Logan then decapitated the Skull with the shield, and began hearing the guards attempting to blow a hole into the room. He searched the room for a weapon, and chose to don Iron Man's Armor, blasting a hole through the door, and grabbing the case of cash before flying out of the White House at full speed back to California.

The armor eventually warned him that he was consuming the last of the fuel rods, and that a crash was imminent, but Logan pushed the armor faster and harder, causing him to crash in the desert many miles from his home. Two travelers noticed the crash, and began to make their way to it to scavenge the metal when Logan became conscious again and fought them off.

Thirty-six hours later, Logan finally made his way back to the family farm, meeting his neighbor, Abe Donovan, outside his house. Logan asked if the Hulk Gang had been around, and explained that he had their money. Abe reluctantly gave him the bad news, the Hulk Gang "got bored" and came by early, murdering his entire family.

Logan viewed their broken bodies inside the house as Abe reminded him that the good Christian thing to do was to bury and mourn them, and any retribution he sought would only cause more problems for the other families in that area. Logan didn't seem to be listening, and when his neighbor asked him if he heard what was said, Logan's face changed and he replied: "The name isn't Logan, bub... it's Wolverine."; while popping his claws for the first time in fifty years.[23]

James Howlett (Earth-807128) and Bruce Banner (Earth-807128) from Wolverine Old Man Logan Giant-Size Vol 1 1 004

Killing Pappy Banner.

Vengeance

Filled with rage, Wolverine tracked down every single member of the Banner clan and killed them with his Adamantium claws in revenge for what they did to his family. After almost all the members were dead, he went to the main hideout where Pappy Banner was hiding with his baby grandson, Bruce, Jr. Banner told Wolverine that he killed his family hoping that the Wolverine would comeback for revenge, giving him the opportunity to have one final fight with his foe.

Although Banner was extremely strong, Wolverine was able to stab him. Unfortunately, Banner transformed into the Hulk and ate Logan, "killing" him. Later that night, the Hulk started to feel sick, and from his guts, Wolverine reappeared killing him from the inside out, thanks to his healing factor.

Then, Wolverine returned to his farm, buried his family and went to restore the law in the country, with the help of baby, Bruce Jr., whom Wolverine planned to raise as his son and trained to be a hero in his own right.[24]

Secret Wars

When the Multiverse was destroyed and reborn in the form of Battleworld, Logan ended up in the domain known as the Wastelands, a recreation of his native reality.[2]

After having declared to set his world right, Logan disrupted a poker game between the Gladiator and his Flying Devils, and ended their human trafficking ring by killing them, freeing those imprisoned. While on the way back to meet with Danielle Cage, Logan witnessed a decapitated head of an Ultron Sentinel fall from above. Wishing to investigate further, he brought it along with him back home to Carson City, where Hulk Jr. and Danielle were also residing. After explaining this new development to her, he carried on to investigate the head's origins. Thanks to a visit to Hammer Falls and meeting with the dying Emma Frost, he found out that it had come from beyond the Wastelands, and decided to venture beyond his domain.[25]

When Logan trespassed upon its borders, he was approached by a Thor of the Thor Corps,[25] and was attacked by her for breaking God Emperor Doom's laws, falling into the Domain of Apocalypse in the process. Already healed from the burns caused by the Thor's attack, Logan was attacked by Creed, who was one of the Horsemen of Apocalypse, and his Infinite soldiers, but was rescued by the X-Men and taken to their hideout, where they were attacked by Apocalypse himself and his other Horsemen.[26]

The battle that ensued was intervened against by the Thor who attacked Logan earlier, and as she had an argument with Apocalypse, Logan fled and hid himself. The Thor then demanded to know to where he had run, but no one answered. Angry, she attacked both the X-Men and the Horsemen of Apocalypse, which made Apocalypse furious, and then went looking for Logan throughout the domain. When she was near the domain's walls, Logan climbed up and attacked her from behind. Enraged, the Thor attacked him with another lightning bolt and let him fall into the neighboring domain, Technopolis, as she was attacked by Apocalypse's Infinite soldiers.

Logan was taken to Stark Tower by Baron Stark and Grand Marshal James Rhodes, the Thor of that domain. After healing his wounds, Logan woke up and found out he was in a totally different domain from the one he expected. He ended up engaging Rhodes in fight, but was defeated and sent to the Deadlands as punishment for breaking Doom's laws.[27]

Thanks to his healing factor, Logan managed to fight through the hordes of zombies of the Deadlands, taking shelter inside a cave, where he found an uninfected She-Hulk, who had been there for a long time. He was trying to convince her to throw him out of the Deadlands when the zombies who were pursuing Logan found them. In a desperate attempt to save Logan's life, She-Hulk caught him and jumped as high as she could to throw him out of the Deadlands as he had suggested, ultimately sacrificing her own life to do so. Afterwards, Logan found himself in the Kingdom of Manhattan.[10]

While wandering the city he hadn't seen in years, Logan met this domain's Jean Grey and Emma Frost, and was taken by them to met the rest of the X-Men, as well as the son of one of the Wolverines of the domain, Jimmy Hudson. Later, after leading the superhero population of the Kingdom of Manhattan in a rebellion against God Emperor Doom, Logan found himself in a new world.[28]

Prime Earth

Berserker

Logan awoke in the Prime Marvel Universe, an alternate reality set in a similar past to his own. He immediately decided to kill the people responsible for turning his future into what it became, before they had the chance to do so.[29] He also chose to remain under the radar, believing it was his destiny to kill the X-Men, something he would do anything to avoid.[30]

Old Man Logan Vol 2 2 Textless

Logan meets the Totally Awesome Hulk.

His first target was Black Butcher, a D-list villain that in Logan's future had stolen his son's baseball cap.[29] After killing him, Logan remained set up in a workshop to get his bearings, before hearing on the radio that the Hulk was in Manhattan. Logan immediately set out to kill him, leading to a fight. Weakened by old age, Logan was no match for a Hulk in the prime of his youth, and failed to kill him. The fight stopped when Logan realized that the Hulk he was fighting was not Banner, but in fact Amadeus Cho. Hurt from the fight and trying to avoid the police, he fled to Brooklyn and broke into Clint Barton's home, to get some help. To his dismay, he found Kate Bishop there instead.[31]

After explaining who he was and passing out on Hawkeye's couch, Logan awoke thirty-three hours later. Upon learning that he was looking for Mysterio, Bishop looked up his last known whereabouts on S.H.I.E.L.D.'s database and demanded to come with Logan as he investigated. When they arrived, they found two individuals there. Logan immediately attacked them, cutting off one man's hand, despite them denying that they knew who Mysterio was. A horrified Kate Bishop tried to stop him, but Logan quickly neutralized her, as the two men escaped. Logan gave chase, but was stopped by the arrival of Steve Rogers.[32]

The two of them confronted each other, until Kate Bishop interfered and fired a tranquilizer arrow at Logan, knocking him unconscious. Waking up in Alberta, Canada, Logan was told by Steve that he had something to show him, but Logan thought it was one of Mysterio's illusions and attacked Steve, though he was defeated. Steve later showed the Adamantium-encased corpse of this reality's counterpart, revealing to him that this was not his past, all of which prompted Logan to tell him about the future that he had experienced and how Banner took away his family. Steve offered his help, but Logan refused.[33]

Extraordinary X-Men Vol 1 1 Textless

With the X-Men.

Chance at Redemption

Logan managed to stay under the radar for eight months, but eventually caught the attention of the X-Men and was confronted by Cerebra. The team initially believed him to be the late Logan of their universe.[34] He initially refused Storm's proposal to join her X-Men,[35] but he was finally convinced by the time-displaced Jean Grey, who promised to stop him at the slightest chance he'd go down the path he believed he was destined to.[30]

Bordertown

After taking a momentary leave, Logan decided to head to Killhorn Falls, where Maureen grew up, but she was still a child. Unbeknownst to Logan, the Reavers, led by Lady Deathstrike, followed him there in the hopes of subduing him.[15] When Logan searched for Maureen's missing dog, and discovered its corpse after it had been killed by the Reavers.[36] As the Reavers massacred the town, Logan singlehandedly killed them all and confronted Lady Deathstrike before saving Maureen. Depiste being wounded multiple times, Logan managed defeated Deathstrike. As she left, limping, Logan fell unconscious. Realizing that he failed to protect Maureen from the chaos, Logan vowed to hunt down Lady Deathstrike.[37]

Weirdworld

Logan, alongside with Colossus, Magik, and Iceman, was assigned to venture into Weirdworld to bring Sunfire to X-Haven; however, Storm secretly told Logan that if Sunfire didn't comply, he would have to kill him.[38] Sunfire did comply though, and went with the X-Men to X-Haven.[39]

The Last Ronin

Logan went to a bar in Tokyo as Patch, where he met a crime lord named Eito. Logan attempted to bribe him for information on Lady Deathstrike's whereabouts, but the meeting turned out to be a ruse. He was gunned down by Eito's henchmen, but he healed and then slaughtered them all. Before he killed Eito, Logan interrogated him and learned that Lady Deathstrike was in a remote village. Logan traveled there, noting that it was where he and Maureen had attempted to find refuge in his past. The village was seemingly abandoned, but he found Yuriko chained to a wall, begging for his help. He was then ambushed by the Silent Order.[4] Four days later, he awoke in a well and attempted to climb out, but he was shot down by the Order's commander, General Sohei. Once Logan succeeded in climbing out of the well, he saw he was at a temple and Lady Deathstrike was in a cage. He was then attacked by Sohei and the rest of the Silent Order, ultimately overwhelmed by the horde of ninja, so he had no choice but to free Lady Deathstrike and seek her aid.[40]

After Logan and Yuriko managed to kill all of the ninja, she attempted to kill Sohei, but was cut down by him, causing her to stumble back into the well. Just as Logan attempted to confront Sohei, he was telekinetically assaulted by his unwitting enforcer, a mutant child called the Silent Monk. The Monk had had a vision of his death in the future and tried to prevent it by killing Logan in the present by throwing him into the well over and over again. Lady Deathstrike threw an arrow into the Silent Monk's thigh, causing him to fall into the well as well and Logan then threatened to kill the young mutant unless Sohei released him and Yuriko.[18] Sohei called Logan's bluff, but knew that Yuriko was more than willing to murder a helpless child. Sohei agreed to their demands just as the Silent Monk regained consciousness and lashed out. The Monk transformed into a giant creature as his powers ran wild. Logan convinced the young boy to read his mind, assuring the Monk that Logan's future will never likely come true. The young boy then realized that Sohei had been manipulating him and subdued Sohei and the remaining Silent Order ninja. Logan offered to take the Silent Monk to X-Haven, an offer that he accepted.[41]

The Brood

One day, Logan woke up in the Wastelands, and was eaten by a Venom-possessed T-Rex. Logan then popped his claws, and tore his way out of the beast's stomach. He then hopped onto his horse, and tried to remember how he got back to the Wastelands. He recalled receiving a distress signal from the Alpha Flight space station by Puck. He then remembered being ambushed by a Brood. He then travelled to Danielle Cage's house in Las Vegas. He then discovered Danielle Cage in her closer, tied and gagged. He freed her, and she told him that Kang had capture Bruce Jr. Logan, still trying to figure out how he got back to the Wastelands, continued to recollect his time on the Alpha Flight space station. He recalled almost being infected by the Brood-controlled Sasquatch and Abigail Brand. However, he was saved by Puck, and the two retreat to a panic room. Back in the present, Logan set out to save Bruce Banner Jr, and told Danielle Cage that what happened wasn't her fault. Logan then remembered that when he was on the Alpha Flight space station, he was sucked into the vacuum of space.[42]

In the Wastelands, Logan was attacked by the Wrecking Crew and tossed off of Niagara Falls. Logan then entered a cave hidden behind the waterfalls before flashing back to the Alpha Flight space station again, remembering that Puck had saved him. Logan, after experiencing an of Bruce Banner Jr. becoming a dictator, realized that Jean Grey was playing psychic mind tricks on him, and that he hadn't actually gone back to the Wastelands.[43]

After experiencing more illusions of a false Bruce Banner Jr, in addition to reanimated corpses of his family and his universe's X-Men, Logan broke free of the illusions long enough for him to kill the Brood embryo controlling Jean. She then telepathically shut down all the Brood, and the infected members of the space station were taken to be cured. Jean tried to apologize for what she did while controlled by Brood, but Logan told her that it was fine, and that she made him realized that he had to go back to the Wastelands.[44]

Civil War II

At some point, Director Maria Hill enlisted Logan's help in investigating the disappearance of her S.H.I.E.L.D. agents.[45] Wolverine later on saved him from being digested by Fin Fang Foom. She asked Gabby to take him somewhere safe; meanwhile, she covered herself in the Makluans' pheromone and used it to lure an amorous Foom out to sea. Laura was distressed when she returned home that evening to discover that Gabby brought Logan there to recover, as she adamantly refused to accept that he was her Logan; however, Logan awoke and struck her speechless when he revealed that he recognized the apartment, as it was where he'd raised her.[46] Elsewhere, a precognitive NuHuman, Ulysses, predicted that Logan would kill Gabby, and warned Carol Danvers, who contacted Maria Hill with the information.[47]

All-New Wolverine Vol 1 12 Textless

Encountering Laura and Gabby.

Back at the apartment, Logan had woken again, confused about where he was, and why he heard whale noises. Gabby told him it was to help soothe him, and as Laura untied him he told her that he smelt somebody coming up their fire escape. He popped his claws on instinct, prepared to fight, but Laura talked him down. Two burglars, one armed with a handgun, entered the apartment through the window. Gabby's pet wolverine, Jonathan, was shot in the ensuing encounter, and she, along with Laura and Logan, easily subdued the two robbers. Logan and Gabby then patched up Jonathan, and Logan asked if she had harmful intent towards Laura. After Gabby told him she didn't, he said that he was proud of her and went to get a soda. After revealing to Laura that he didn't raise her in this apartment, but he did still raise her, he told her that she was one of the only things that he didn't regret. He then tried to talk to her about what happened between her and Gabby in his future, but Laura refused to listen. Maria Hill then called her, and told her that Logan was going to kill Gabby, while a team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, including Captain America, came to arrest him.[47]

Laura, not believing in preemptive justice, fought against Captain America as Logan and Gabby thought of an escape plan in another room. Gabby grabbed two S.H.I.E.L.D. Flight Packs, one for her and one for Logan, and followed Logan as he cut holes through the apartment complex's walls until they were outside; however, Maria Hill had a S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier shoot Logan in the back with an on-board energy weapon, destroying his jetpack and making him crash into Bethesda Terrace and Fountain in Central Park. As a van full of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents arrived on the scene, Logan, driven to the point of a berserker rage, took down the squadron of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents as he was shot by multiple tranquilizers. Gabby, in an attempt to calm Logan down, tried talking to him; however, due to the hallucinogenic state he was in, Logan stabbed Gabby through the chest, telling her that in his universe, she killed Laura.[48]

Logan, still in his crazed state, then tried to attack Captain America, who hit him in the face with his shield, knocking him out. Cap then called for the S.H.I.E.L.D. medic's assistance, as Laura mourned Gabby's "death." Logan escaped into the sewers during all of the commotion, and Laura pursued him. Laura then used her enhanced senses to track down a berserk Logan, who lunged at her and instigated a fight. Unknown to Logan and Laura, Gabby bolted up, due to her hidden regenerative abilities, and looked for Laura and Logan. Laura continued to fight Logan, until he left his berserker state; however, in a fit of anger, Laura almost killed him anyway, but wais stopped by Gabby, who revealed her hidden powers and claws to Laura and Logan. Laura asked Logan if he knew that Gabby could heal, and he responded that he wasn't sure, and that Laura and Gabby killed each other in his world. Angry, Laura then blew up on Logan, asking if there was anybody in Logan's world who didn't die for knowing him, and threatened to get him thrown into prison if he came near her or Gabby again. As Gabby apologized for everything that'd happened, Logan told her, "You hurt her, and I will come for you." Gabby threatened him in return, then Laura and Gabby told Steve Rogers that they wouldn't have any further part in the second superhuman civil war.[49]

Logan ultimately fought alongside Iron Man and his team against preemptive justice until the conclusion of the second superhuman civil war.[50]

Logan alongside Kitty Pryde's team of X-Men.

New Brotherhood of Evil Mutants

After the war between the Inhumans and the X-Men, Logan joined Kitty Pryde's team of X-Men alongside Nightcrawler, Prestige, Colossus, and Storm. The team was dispatched to take down Terrax, who was wreaking havoc on New York City. One Logan, Storm, and Prestige beat Terrax, the X-Men regrouped, only to see a crowd of shocked humans standing around them. After Kitty tries reasoning with them, the X-Men head back to their base of operations in Central Park, Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. Later, Logan aided the X-Men when the Brotherhood attacked the United Nations Headquarters in Manhattan.[51] Seemingly leading this team was Magma. When Logan questioned why she was leading the Brotherhood, she responded by setting him on fire. Nightcrawler tried to teleport him to safety, only to be kind-controlled, letting Logan get captured by Mesmero, as the X-Men battle the Brotherhood, who fled the battle.

When Logan woke up, he discovered that he had been chained to a wooden chair by Adamantium. He was able to smell Mesmero, and told him that he had one chance to alter his mind before he broke free. Mesmero was unable to affect Logan's mind due to his psychic resistance, prompting him to break out of his chair and choke Mesmero with the chains that bound him. After taking on a couple of members of the Brotherhood, Logan called Kitty Pryde, revealing to her the location of the Brotherhood's hideout so the X-Men could beat the Brotherhood and save the mayor.[52] Logan was then overwhelmed, and Mesmero broke through his psychic shields. The X-Men, along with students Armor and Rockslide, assault the Brotherhood's hideout, battling them and a brainwashed Logan. Logan is eventually knocked out by a lightning bolt from Storm, and broken free of Mesmero's control. Learning that the base has two minutes until it explodes, the X-Men evacuate as Kitty Pryde tries to find Magma. The base then explodes with Kitty and Magma still inside, but the two survive thanks to Kitty's abilities. After learning that everybody in the the Brotherhood was under the control of Mesmero due to Lydia Nance, an anti-mutant activist, hiring him to make mutants look bad, the team takes a mysterious member of the Brotherhood, Kologoth, in to see if he recalls anything about his time in the Brotherhood. The X-Men then infiltrated the home of Lydia Nance, and warned her that if she tries anything again, they'll come after her.[53]

Logan and Sabretooth fighting the Weapon X Program's Adamantium cyborgs.

While spending some alone time in the woods, Logan was attacked by Weapon X cyborgs, forcing him to team up with Sabretooth to confront the current iteration of the organization, whose goal was to hunt mutantkind to extinction.[11] After retreating from battle with the Weapon X cyborgs, Logan and Sabretooth lured one of them into a trap, accidentally killing it, before tracking two of the cyborg's comrades.[54] Logan and Victor took a break to get coffee and doughnuts, before figuring out that they rented a car to travel. Creed and Logan then supplied themselves with firearms and used a tracking device in the car rented by the cyborgs to deduce that their next target was Domino, and went to aid her in a fight against the cyborgs on a boat near Isla Cedros, Baja California.

Soon after, the Hulk, who had also been attacked by Weapon X cyborgs, picked them up, offering his assistance and alerting them to the fact that Lady Deathstrike and Warpath had been kidnapped for their technology and genetics, respectively. Hulk then proceeded to hack into the cyborg's data bank, locating its point of origin, only to have Logan figure out that Weapon X had gotten its hands on a DNA sample from the Hulk.[56] Soon after this discovery, Hulk, Logan, Sabretooth, and Domino leapt out of an aircraft from two hundred feet over a Weapon X facility in Louisiana to save Lady Deathstroke and Warpath from captivity. After fighting through a horde of cyborgs, the team rescued Warpath and Lady Deathstrike before trying to interrogate the scientists of the facility. Before they got the chance to get any information, however, William Stryker (the new director of the Weapon X Program) had the facility blown up, with only Logan and his companions surviving the blast.[57]

Afterwards, Logan warned Kitty Pryde about the Weapon X cyborgs, and to have Cerebra keep an eye on the Mutant population. When she asked if Logan needed any help from an X-Man such as Colossus, he declined stating that he already had a team in place. He then engaged in a training session where he ambushed Creed and Yuriko. He told them that they all needed to learn how to work together. Sabretooth then instigated a fight between with Domino and Warpath, which the latter won. After finding a lead thanls to Logan and the Hulk, the team split into two groups: Hulk and Yuriko would go hunt the family of one of the cyborgs, and the rest of the team going to a Weapon X manufacturing facility in Oklahoma. Once Logan's team entered the building, they were attacked by cyborgs disguised as stray cats. After beating their enemies, Logan found shipping manifests.[58] Soon after, Logan and his team briefly investigates a Mutant murder in Santo Marco.[59]

After being filled in on the fact that the recovered shipping manifests were altered, Logan and Sabretooth tracked down one of Weapon X's accountants to his apartment, where they tried to question him. But before they could get any information, Weapon X killed him. With the help of Amadeus Cho, they located Weapon X's main facility in Texas.[60] After debating with Cho whether or not they should bomb the facility, Sabretooth and Amadeus got into a fight, which Logan allowed to happen. After the Hulk beat Sabretooth, the rest of the team agreed to go with Amadeus' plan of attacking the base head-on. They then started their assault on the base at night, ready for a war.[61]

Weapon X vs. Weapon H.

The team proceeded to raid the base, fighting through waves of cyborgs, and failed experiments, until encountering H-Beta, another failed attempt to merge the Hulk's DNA with the rest of the team's DNA. Amadeus fought this monster, only lasting by giving into the Hulk persona. After finishing his incubation, H-Alpha, a.k.a. Weapon H, was unleashed by Weapon X and killed H-Beta. The facility was soon destroyed in a battle between Weapon X, Cho, Weapon H, and Logan's team. Weapon H determined that there were no threats in the area, running away from the chaos. Weapon X then retreated and took his creator, Dr. Alba and Amadeus left in a fit of rage, leaving Logan's team alone in the wreckage. Sabretooth then declared that him, Logan, Warpath, Lady Deathstrike and Domino banded together to become the new Weapon X, and set off to take down Weapon H.[62]

The Hunt for Weapon H

Later, as Logan and the rest of Weapon X tracked Weapon H across the American southwest, Logan and the rest of the team had a dispute, Logan wanting to try to reason with Weapon H, and the rest of the team wanting to kill him. Eventually, they tracked Weapon H down, and Logan told Weapon H he has one minute to try to calm him down, per an agreement he made with the rest of the team.[63] Despite this, Weapon H ignored him, and proceeded to attack them, in the following order; Warpath, Lady Deathstrike, Sabretooth and Logan. He quickly dispatched them and fled, ignoring Domino, who laid them in the Medbay. Logan then found out that Weapon H was taking on the team based on how dangerous they were, meaning that Weapon H was capable of holding back, but mistook the team for enemies.

Logan and Laura.

After tracking Weapon H to northern Wynoming, Sabretooth attacked Logan, trying to usurp leadership of Weapon X. However, Wolverine stopped him.[64] After she beat Sabretooth, she was filled in on everything that had happened in relation to Weapon X and Weapon H. When Logan, Laura, Sabretooth, and Warpath located Weapon H, they realized that Weapon H had amnesia. Stryker then ordered an assault on the location. Afterward, Dr. Alba seemingly whispered something in Weapon H's ear that made him hulk-out, kill all the Weapon X cyborgs sent after him, mutilate Stryker, and free her. After arriving at where they thought Weapon H was too late, Sabretooth blamed their recent failures on Logan, and tried to engage in a fight with him. However, Laura discovered that Stryker himself was an adamantium cyborg. Too damaged to move, Stryker told her that he'll tell Logan and his team everything they needed to know in order to defeat Weapon H.[12]

Scarlet Samurai

Logan and the Scarlet Samurai.

After quitting the X-Men for a while,[65] Logan, missing the bustling streets of Tokyo, decided to visit and get a few drinks in Kabukicho, Tokyo, only to witness a man getting thrown through the window of a bar by members of the Crazy Thunder Clan for refusing to buy drinks for them in “their territory.” Logan, looking to resolve the conflict peacefully, offered to pay for their drinks, only to get attacked for not minding his own business. Logan, outclassing the thugs, proceeded to easily sever limbs from the members of the clan. However, he then discovered that the criminals had obtained healing factors from a drug called Regenix. Investigating further, Logan travelled to a drug smuggling den in Ikebukuro. Logan, wanting information on the drug, threatened the leader of the den for information, leading to him and various other members of the Crazy Thunder Clan to attack him. Eventually, the battle between the clan members and Logan led to a freezer in the building, where Logan discovered that the regeneration gained from Regenix was slowed in the cold. Logan then interrogated the head of the den, learning that the drug “Regenix” was produced by a scientist named Touko Kenmochi, along with where the creator of the drug lived.[66]

The next day, Logan attended the funeral of Touko, and made arrangements with his widow Asami to meet up at a bar to help him with his investigation. He then learned that Regenix was produced to help people, but when the Crazy Thunder Gang found out, they forced Touko to bring them samples. However, the two’s conversation was interrupted when Gorgon, the Scarlet Samurai, and the Hand intervened. Two Hand ninjas then attempted to kidnap Asami, and Logan went to attack Gorgon, but was subsequently overwhelmed by the combined forces of him, the Hand, and the Scarlet Samurai, who cut off his hand using her advanced sword. However, before she killed Logan Gorgon ordered her to remove her helmet, revealing herself to be a Hand-ressurected Mariko.[67]

However, Mariko recognized Logan as part of her past life, and hesitated before killing, giving Logan and Asami the opportunity to escape. Logan and Asami then went their separate ways as Logan hid at a pier to recover from his injuries. As he was regenerating his severed hand and claws (albeit without its Adamantium coat), Logan was approached by the second Silver Samurai, seeking to ally himself with Logan. Logan then agreed to this, but only under the terms that Touko’s child would be taken care of and that he wouldn’t kill Mariko. Soon, Logan and the Silver Samurai raided the Hand’s Regenix manufacturing in the Yashida Corp, and used liquid nitrogen to slow the regeneration the Hand had obtained from the drug. Silver Samurai then proceeded to combat Gorgon, as Logan fought off Hand ninjas and tried to get through to Mariko. However, Logan refused to harm Mariko and was almost slain by her. Luckily, Gorgon chose to retreat from the battle, allowinf Silver Samurai to inject Mariko with nanites that would break the Hand’s control over her. Then, since Logan and Mariko owed him a favor, Silver Samurai had the two go to Madripoor to destroy a rogue shipment of Regenix.[68]

Now in Madripoor, Logan was still feeling weak from his previous injuries which surprised Mariko, however despite his weakened state he decided to help Mariko take down Gorgon.The duo was then able to destroy the last batch of Regenix before facing Gorgon.[69] Gorgon was able to stab Logan through the chest with a sword but Logan also managed to severely wounded him with his claws. Mariko angry about what Gorgon did to her and about what he just did to Logan confronted him, she was able to defeat him but as she was about to kill him, he was saved by his ninja army and was able to escape. But Logan's wounds overwhelmed his healing factor and as he was about to die, Mariko decided to inject him with the Regenix saving his life. After checking on Silver Samurai to make sure he stopped the production of Regenix, she then gave to Logan the last remaining doses of Regenix and told him to use them in case of emergency.

After thanking Logan, Mariko now free from the Hand's control and from her old obligations with the Clan Yashida said her goodbyes to the old man and decided to rediscover the world after being gone for so long. [70]

Forge then released Speedball from his safe chamber, who blew himself up which created a giant nuclear explosion that destroyed Forge's compound and stopped Sabretooth's army.[94]

Logan and Dani were then able to track Sabretooth to Hammer Falls after Forge previously told Logan that Sabretooth was now working with Weapon X which had their facility located around here. Logan was then recognized by one of the merchants which started a fight since there was a bounty on Logan's head. Dani made quick work of one of their attacker, they then learned the location of the Weapon X Facility.

Logan and Dani then infiltrated the Weapon X Facility and discovered that the head of the new Weapon X program was Mister Sinister himself. Sinister revealed that he was the one who resurrected Sabretooth and created several clones of him, but the clones were subpar and that was why he was after Logan at first until he discovered the existence of Bruce Jr. Sinister then revealed that he was the architect of the death of all the superhoes in this world but the Red Skull took credit for everything and gave him nothing.

Having heard enough Logan was able to free Bruce Jr. who then helped Dani and Logan escaped the facility. But Sabretooth and his army caught up to them and after seeing that they were outnumbered Logan told them he would surrender if they let Dani and Bruce Jr. go away.

But Sabretooth decided to shoot Danni who fell to the ground on the hammer of Thor which moved as a result to the shock of everyone. Dani then managed to lift Mjolnir and became the new Thor. [95]

Legends Never Die

Dani now possessing the power of Thor was able to fight back Sabretooth's army with Bruce Jr.'s help. Logan knowing that he had to make this last fight count, injected himself with the last dose of Regenix in order to face Sabretooth one last time. After a brutal fight, Logan defeated Sabretooth and destroyed his body with his claws but this last dose of Regenix finally took its toll on Logan who wasn't healing anymore and was bleeding to death.

Sinister then confronted the trio but he was killed by Dani who threw Mjolnir to his head before stealing his car. Dani wanted to take Logan to an hospital but he told her that there was nothing to do, it was too late, he just wanted her to get him back home. Dani then drove to Logan's ranch in Sacramento, once they arrived Bruce Jr. and Dani helped Logan get to the graves of Maureen, Scotty and Jade. Logan said one last goodbye to Bruce Jr. and Dani who then left him alone with his family.

Now alone, Logan said he had never been more happy than when he was with Maureen, Scotty and Jade, he was sorry for not being here for them when they needed him the most and he hoped that when he saw them, they would be able to forgive him. Logan's last forces then abandonned him, he fell on his back and slowly died from his injuries, finally ready to be reunited with his family.

Logan was later buried by Dani and Bruce Jr. next to his family, they then decided to follow Logan's advices and keep fighting until they found a place they could call home. [96]


Logan's personality changed much through the years due to the traumatic events that led him to abandon his Wolverine identity. He learned to control his temper, suffering slights and abuse without flinching that would have sent his younger self into a murderous rage. Rather than follow his strong sense of honor and aggressive tendencies, Logan prioritized protecting his own family, and not drawing attention to himself, above all, leading him to accept a myriad of injustices. Losing his closest friends appears to have made him value those relationships more, seen most clearly in him naming his son after Cyclops. After returning to the past, Logan's personality began to more closely resemble his old self. He began killing again, but also re-embraced his role as a hero.

Powers

Abilities

Seemingly those of the James Howlett of Earth-616, though he's more proficient.

Weaknesses

Seemingly those of the James Howlett of Earth-616. In addition to this, he is blind in his left eye and deaf in his left ear.[97]


Equipment

Seemingly those of the James Howlett of Earth-616. However, after the Scarlet Samurai severed his right hand (and claws) from his arm, they regenerated without Adamantium.[68]

Fantastic Force (Earth-807128) 001

The Hooded Man among the Fantastic Force.

  • This version of Wolverine was originally also identified as the Hooded Man, a figure from Old Man Logan creator Mark Millar's other work involving a future set in the year 2509. This version of Logan helped the Fantastic Four and other heroes form the New Defenders. The New Defenders would use a time-machine to transport their dying world to Earth-616, where they settled on Nu-World with the help of the present-day Fantastic Four. Logan eventually went back to his native reality to resettle the depopulated Earth with Gaea.[2] The events of Dead Man Logan #12 appear to create a discrepancy, since Logan's apparent death occurs in the book, set hundreds of years before the events in which Logan would appear as the Hooded Man.
