Top Five Wolverine Young Female Friends

Here is an archive of all the past top five lists I’ve one over the years.

Wolverine is well known for how well he gets along with young female characters. It is pretty much the fact that there is an interesting dichotomy between the gruff, old man and the young women that works surprisingly well.

HONORABLE MENTION

Rogue

Rogue really stopped being portrayed as a teenager very quickly, so this really never caught on as a young female friend type relationship, as they were pretty quickly just peers. But we’ll always have…

Angel Salvadore

They really only had one adventure together, during Grant Morrison’s New X-Men run (in a series of issues drawn by Igor Kordey in a matter of days) but it was very memorable!

5. Armor

It was during his friendship with Armor that the creakiness of this concept really began to show a bit, as while Armor was a fine character, the friendship aspect seemed to lean a bit too hard on the nostalgia side of things. But it was still fun seeing them interact with each other, like this bit from Astonishing X-Men #23…

4. X-23

In a weird way, I think Wolverine’s interactions with his clone, X-23, have gone UP since he died, as we get more and more flashbacks as to their time together, when while they were actually around together, he didn’t act AS much as an inspiration to Laura. Storm, Gambit and Jubilee all seemed to have a slightly greater impact on her – except for the whole, you know, being the basis for her DNA. But he did have some notable interactions with her, and like I said, some of the best have been since he died, like when she took on the mantle of Wolverine in All-New Wolverine #1 by Tom Taylor and David Lopez…

3. Katie Power
In an upset, I’m going with Katie Power, from Power Pack, as for a while there, she had a lot of interactions with Wolverine in both X-Men and Power Pack (and in the years since, there was even a Wolverine/Power Pack mini-series) and one of those interactions came in one of the all-time great Wolverine stories of all-time, Chris Claremont and Barry Windsor-Smith’s “Wounded Wolf,” from Uncanny X-Men #205…

And then after his bloody battle with Lady Deathstrike…

Awesome stuff.
