Welcome to the Wolverine Files

Classic Frank Miller WolverineWith the start of the summer movie season and the debut of ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ in theaters today, we expect to see a lot of new folks on the site in the next few days.

So if this is your first time here, allow me to give you the grand tour…

Wolverine Files was originally devoted to unraveling the seemingly contradictory past of the Marvel Comics’ superhero, Wolverine. Since then, it has evolved into providing news and reviews of all things Wolverine, publishing weekly columns on Classic Wolverine covers and most recently debuting a Wolverine Files Community Forum.

The best places to start are as follows:

Wolverine Files Main Page: The nexus of all things Wolverine…
Wolverine Files Forum: The latest community feature of the Wolverine Files…
Classic Wolverine Covers: Every iconic Wolverine cover, starting with ‘Incredible Hulk’ #181…

Wolverine Files Chronology: Everything you ever want to know about Logan’s past…
000: True Origin: The behind-the-scenes origins of Wolverine at Marvel Comics…
001: Wild Child: Logan’s original childhood before ‘Origin’ was published…

After the jump (and in the navigation on the left) is the rest of the Wolverine Chronology, and below this post (on the main page) are more stories, news items and reviews of Wolverine.

I hope you enjoy(ed) your visit to Wolverine Files and make sure to leave a comment before you go!
