Push a man too far and you’re just asking for trouble. Introduced in Wolverine Vol 3 #66 (2008) by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, 50 year before the events of Old Man Logan, Wolverine was made to kill all of his friends and family in the X-men when Mysterio made him think that villains had attacked the mansion. Realizing too late and all his friends, he swore to never pop his claws again. Decades later, he married and had a family, living on a farm. Needing money to pay the Hulk Gang rent, he teamed up with Old Man Hawkeye to deliver a package. They traveled across the wasteland, having many adventures but when Logan returned home, he found that his wife and child killed by the Hulk gang. For the first time in decades, he popped his claws and nearly wiped out the Hulk Gang except for the youngest baby Hulk, who he adopted to raise into a hero.

Depending on what version you believe, he either became the Hooded Man or was eventually transported to the Prime universe (which is the one I will focus on). The Prime Wolverine was dead at the time. He secretly began hunting down villains that he believed would cause his future, like Mysterio. After a few months, he was discovered by the X-men and convinced to join them. He would remain with the team for many adventures but eventually realized that he needed to return to the Wasteland to raise his adopted son. He would eventually die fighting for what is right and would inspire his son and Danielle Cage to become the Avengers.

This version of Wolverine is an extremely popular character, one that would be a big influence for the Logan movie. As such it should have come as no surprise that he had gotten a few figures over the years, all from Hasbro. He recieved his first figure as part of the X-men Warlock wave. His next figure was part of a 2-pack with Old Man Hawkeye (and Baby Hulk) as part of the X-men Movies 20th anniversary comic line.


Wasteland

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Marvel Legends X-men Movies 20th Anniversary 2-pack – Old Man Logan with Old Man Hawkeye and Baby Hulk (package)

  • Background:
    • Because costumes were a thing of the past in the Wasteland universe, Logan doesn’t wear a costume. During his time, he wore mostly farming gear and a long jacket.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • If you are building a Wasteland universe shelf, then you will need this figure. It is also needed for a Wolverine collection. If you have no interest in these, then skip.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.

X-men

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Marvel Legends X-men Warlock Wave – Wolverine

  • Background:
    • Sometime after the Secret War, Wolverine found himself in the Prime universe, where he began hunting down villains he thought would make his future happen. He would eventually join the X-men. During this time he wore a much shorter jacket.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • I would recommend this figure for the same reason as above but also for the X-men which he was a member of before returning to his universe.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.
