Logan possesses memories of being a Samurai in Japan, a mercenary operative for the Central Intelligence Agency, and a “wild man” in the Canadian wilderness. Due to extensive memory implants given to Logan through the Weapon X program, any or all of these memories are suspect. Logan has at least one memory of meeting Captain America (Steve Rogers) in World War II while he was in the Canadian Army which has been verified as true. Sometime after World War II, Logan was taken by a group of scientists led by Dr. Cornelius as part of the Weapon X program. Cornelius was hired to perfect and use a technique that would bond the indestructible element adamantium to human bone cells. Logan’s skeleton was bonded to the adamantium, and he was indoctrinated into the Weapon X assassin program.More on Marvel.com
Ah, Wolverine and Hugh Jackman – what a great combination. Leather just seemed fitting for a Wolverine outfit but I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off so I looked at all armour types (just in case).
It was hard to find any yellow pieces to use – short of using plate – and wolf helms were too cheesy. In the end, I made a compromise between his classic wolverine costume (second image above) and a more recent one. When finalising the set in WMV, I found a weird bug with the left fist weapon causing it to appear backwards like two right-handed fist weapons. Thankfully this was easily fixed in Photoshop.
Only leather pieces were used – short of any shoulders for a complete transmog.
