The Evolution Of Wolverine | Ultimate (2001)
Ultimate (2001)

Marvel’s Ultimate series reimagined the whole universe for a new generation of readers, but it wasn’t just the characters’ convoluted backstories that were jettisoned. Ultimate X-Men #1 saw the entire gang outfitted in skin-hugging leather, similar to the New X-Men regalia but with more subtle detailing. More than that, however, Wolverine transformed from the shaggy shortarse of X-Men lore to a younger, taller, leaner killer with a more winsome, less product-reliant haircut and less body hair. He also lost his mask for the most part and became generally more Jackman-like. The costume eventually evolved into a sleek black suit with gold tiger-striping on the shoulders and, variously, black gloves or black martial-arts-style hand wraps. Also, a soul patch? Really?

1 RE: Brown and Tan - John Byrne Classic
L: Gouken I started reading comics during the early 80s. It was the Dave Cocrum era... his was because the comic books arrived in Portugal via a Brazilian editor and the stories were lagging about 3-5 years behind... I also remember the 1st Vindicator story when Logan is seen at the start ditching the horrible "Claw" uniform for his classic blue/yellow. More

2 Brown and Tan - John Byrne Classic
I started reading comics during the early 80s. It was the Dave Cocrum era... and of all these the Brown and Tan is also my favourite. John Byrne based it on the fur markings of a real wolverine and debuted it in a kick ass story where Wolverine and Nightcrawler go to Canada and get to fight the Wendigo. One of his last stories on that run and a great parting gift. Plus you get to see Wolvie going all out in a proper berserker rage. And this was before they pumped up the healing factor from "hard to kill" to "imortal" so stories were cooler. More

3 82' not 88'...
....was Frank Millers Wolverine Limited Series, on which the new film is based. Think Buscema did the 88 series. More

4 X-Force
X-Force is baaaaad ass ! The 1988 is actual Frank Miller drawing Wolvie for his first full series. I believe Wolvie has 2 regular monthly books, as well as being in both X-Men teams, and The Avengers + the occasional team up. My personal faves were Wolverine Vol 2 issue 7 & 8, in Madripoor as Patch goes up against Grey Hulk aka Mr Fixit (Wolvie wins) then Punisher (vol 5 or 6 ??) vs Wolvie, Daredevil and Spidey AT THE SAME TIME. Punisher wins by shooting off Wolvie's naughty bits with a shotgun, then parking a steam-roller on top of him. No wonder he's so grumpy, GIVE HIM A DAY OFF ! More
