It was when the iconic mutant character had featured in the comics in 1974; Wolverine had become a household name.

The character, unlike other superheroes, doesn’t confine itself to specific signature style ‘costume’, demeanour, and almost everything that we relate with a fictional superhero. This is how the indelible character has evolved over the years –

This is arguably the best instalment of the series and it happens to be the concluding one. Hugh Jackman played a drunk and swarthy protagonist with conspicuously deteriorated mutant prowess. The character portrayed palpable emotions. It is the most realistic version of Wolverine.
