Wolverine – Mini Series (1982)

Posted on Updated on

Marvel editor-in-chief Roy Thomas asked writer Len Wein to devise a character specifically named Wolverine, who is Canadian and of small stature and with a wolverine‘s fierce temper.John Romita, Sr. designed the first Wolverine costume, and believes he introduced the retractible claws, saying, “When I make a design, I want it to be practical and functional. I thought, ‘If a man has claws like that, how does he scratch his nose or tie his shoelaces?'” Wolverine first appeared in the final “teaser” panel of The Incredible Hulk #180 (cover-dated October 1974) written by Wein and penciled by Herb Trimpe. The character then appeared in a number of advertisements in various Marvel Comics publications before making his first major appearance in The Incredible Hulk #181 again by the Wein–Trimpe team.
