The 10 Most Savage Things Wolverine Did To His X-Men Teammates

Because Marvel Comics' mutant superhero has a tough attitude and an unforgiving berserker rage, Wolverine has done some savage things to his X-Men teammates. With an uncontrollable fury, Wolverine, also known as Logan, has an instant desire for blood, which works best during his battles against super-villains. After being a loner for so many years, Logan hasn't aged well and has occasionally forgotten from time to time how to get along with others. There are certain members in the mutant superhero team who would rather Wolverine go back to his drinking, than deal with his bad temper and unfriendly personality.

During his full-fledged appearance in The Incredible Hulk #180, though he was small in stature, Bruce Banner immediately learned that Wolverine's retractable claws could cause an immense amount of damage. With his bones made up of an indestructible metal alloy named adamantium, Logan proved to be a worthy asset in the violent battlefield as a valuable superhero, soldier, and mercenary. Because of his mutant healing factor, Logan has survived through the worst injuries and resurrected after fatal headshots. Unfortunately, his healing factor cannot put together an already broken heart.
