Wolverine is a character in the Ultimate Marvel Universe and is an alternate version of the Wolverine from the Marvel Universe.


A soldier during World War II who was arrested for theft, James Howlett was experimented on and turned into a killing machine who could heal from seemingly any wound, as well as baring indestructible metal claws.  Eventually, he met Professor Charles Xavier, who convinced him to use his skills to help others.


James Howlett's past remains largely unknown.  It is possible he had a wife and child who were murdered by the dangerous mutant known as Sabretooth but these facts have not been verified as Wolverine has amnesia due to memory tampering by the government-backed Weapon X Project.
