    The Wolverine is finally going to debut in 2013...I can't wait. It looks really good, from the trailers I've seen. Wolverine travels to Japan to train with a samurai warrior.

    Marvel Universe Wiki

    Wolvie was born James Howlett & has been known by a great many names - Logan foremost among them - since his 1st Cameo appearance in Hulk #180's (1974 ) teaser panel.

    I could be wrong, but IIRC, Wolverine was 1st introduced to Xavier as Logan...

    It's a Hugh Jackman movie, You just know a Woman is going to play a major part at some point I'd like to see Juggernaut come into the story...

    Early 90's but I wondered the same thing.

    Iceman (Robert Drake) intorduction into the X-Men universe was through his lock-up for turning a local bully into a block of ice, the townsfolk were out to get him, he was thrown into Gaol for his protection, Scott (Slim) Summers blew open the wall to rescue Iceman but they fought a battle until Professor X stepped in and rescued Iceman. Bobby, his parents and Professor X had a talk and it was agreed that he should go and study scholl for gifted mutants.

    No but i hate it when producers and directors don't adhere to the original look.

    And certainly they don't stay true to the characters.

    Take Rouge (Played by Anna Paquin) for example, she began her X-Men life in 1979 and was Ms Marvel and was adopted by Mystique and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, not what the Movie portrayed.

    Some things just don't translate well visually to live action.

    Of course this happens just before the absolutely earth-shatteringly bad ending......I recall audibly gagging IN the theater.

    (The ending I would have preferred, given the movie's 'plot'.......Rogue comes out of nowhere, realizing that she won't abandon her friends for a 'normal' life....she grabs Phoenix from behind, taking a large chunk of her powers, then there is an awesome psychokinetic duel!)
    I remember that from the movie, but it is more convincing in the books as Colossus is huge and Wolverine is small. Think of the Dwarf-tossing in the LOTR movie (can't remember which one).
