The Dark Claw is a superhero created for Amalgam Comics that merges the superheroes Batman and Wolverine. He was created when the Marvel and DC Universes merged into the Amalgam Universe after the war between the two universes provided no clear winner.


Inspired by the murder of his parents, metamutant Logan Wayne joined the military only to become part of a government experiment to turn him into a super soldier.  Eventually, he escaped and decided to fight crime as Dark Claw.


When Logan Wayne witnessed the murder of his parents (names unknown) by a robber at the age of 5 years old, he was adopted by his uncle in Alberta, Canada, a Mountie in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Soon after his uncle was murdered by poachers and the RCMP sent him to live with some nuns and when he was old enough he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force. He ended up in the the same outfit as a man named Creed H. Quinn and both were subjected to the Weapon X program, designed to produce a Canadian super-soldier. Wayne's bones had adamantium bonded to them, which is when Wayne discovered that he was a super-powered being or "metamutant" with bone claws that come out of his hands.

As Wayne was being turned into a super-soldier, another soldier, Creed was also put through the same process only to be driven insane. Soon, the super-soldier program was terminated due to the fact that neither Wayne nor Creed would make effective soldiers: Wayne for his morality and conscience and Creed for his uncontrollable, erratic behaviour.  Weapon X was disbanded and all files and evidence erased, though some would be recovered by the heroine Ms. Huntress years later.

Logan, no longer affiliated with Weapon X, decided to use his skills and powers to fight crimes and chose to travel the world to hone them.  The skills he mastered included criminology, forensics, martial arts, hunting, detective work, stealth, gymnastics, disguise and even ventriloquism.  Logan then moved to New Gotham City and created a new identity for himself: Logan Wayne.
