                      XXXXXpowers --- Wolverine is a mutant who possesses the ability to regenerate damaged or destroyed areas of his cellular structure at a rate far greater than that of an ordinary human. The speed at which this healing factor works varies in direct proportion with the severity of the damage Wolverine suffers. For example, he can fully recover from an ordinary gunshot wound in a non-vital area of his body within minutes, but it took him almost two months to fully recover from injuries sustained in a duel with Lord Shingen, which included one from a sword that went all the way through his trunk.
                      Wolverine’s natural healing also affords him virtual immunity to poisons and most drugs, as well as an enhanced resistance to diseases. For example, it is nearly impossible for him to become intoxicated from drinking alcohol. He also has a limited immunity to the fatigue poisons generated by bodily activity, and hence he has greater endurance than an ordinary human. His agility and reflexes are similarly enhanced.

                      In addition, Wolverine’s healing factor provides him with an extended lifespan by slowing the effects of the aging process. Although over a century old, Wolverine is as healthy and physically fit as a man in his prime.

                      Wolverine also possesses superhumanly acute senses, making him capable of seeing things at a maximum distance greater than a normal human’s. His hearing is enhanced in a similar manner, and he is able to recognize people and objects by scent, even if that person or object is hidden. Wolverine can use these enhanced senses to track any creature with an impressive degree of success.

                      Wolverine’s skeleton includes six retractable one-foot long bone claws, three in each arm, that are housed beneath the skin and muscle of his forearms. Wolverine can, at will, release these slightly curved claws through his skin beneath the knuckles on each hand. The skin between the knuckles tears and bleeds, but the blood loss is quickly halted by his healing factor. Wolverine can unsheathe any number of his claws at once, although he must keep his wrists straight at the moment his claws shoot from his forearms into his hands. When unsheathed, the claws are fully within his hands, and thus Wolverine can still bend his wrists. The claws are naturally sharp and tougher than that of normal human bone structure, allowing Wolverine to cut through most types of flesh and natural materials.

                      Despite the extent of his healing factor, Wolverine is not immortal. If the injuries are extensive enough, especially if they result in the loss of vital organs, large amounts of blood, and/or loss of physical form, such as having flesh burned away by fire or acid, Wolverine can die.

                      Direct. To the point. Motivated. Ruthless. Honest. These are all words that could easily describe Logan's personality, even without scratching the surface. The man has been tormented by pain all his life, whether it be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. He has stared death cold in the face and felt the sweet embrace of a lover on several occasions. Such extremes all within an abnormally long lifetime take their toll on a man, even a Mutant. Logan is a hardened soldier, a warrior, despite his longing to live a peaceful life at times. On various occasions the Wild man would love nothing more than to disappear into the wilderness to simply survive, wait to be forgotten. But as it always does, death or battle creep in from the shadows and drag him back into the fray.
                      The constant struggle that is Logan's life story has lead him to a point in which he has come to realize his duties as a soldier, as a leader, as a Man. He has made it his mission to aid the future generations of Mutant-kind to survive in such a dangerous climate as modern day earth. Unrest between humans and mutants , Logan realizes, is only a precursor to the true struggles a young Mutant must face. Logan does what he can to prepare his students to take on the darker, more violent world of a Mutant.

                      Logan's memories are a medley of various inconsistencies and questions which have plagued the man for countless years. The man has recollections of being a Samurai in Japan, Serving in World War Two alongside Captain America, Living the life of a coal miner, and countless battles. Over the years it has become increasingly easier to disseminate the fact from fiction though for the most part, he likes to rely on what he knows to be true, his more recent memory. Though in the hopes of getting to know The Wolverine better, lets scrape the surface of his past.

                      As a young boy, James Howlett witnessed the death of his father, which caused his powers to surface for the first time as the once sickly, frail boy unsheathed his bone claws for the first time and lashed out in a feral rage against his attacker. Though, in the aftermath, he was frightened by what happened and began his long carreer of running from his past. He made a life for himself as a Miner alongside his childhood friend, Rose. Though when an altercation broke out with his rival and former childhood friend Dog, Rose attempted to stop Logan's ferocious attack only to become a victim herself. Horrified and guilt ridden, Logan retreated into the woods to live out a self imposed exile.
                      Years passed and Logan's talent was utilized by various government military agencies. The man served the Canadian army and eventually was nominated for a unique operation known as the Weapon X program. As a result, the invincible metal, Adamantium, was infused with his bone cells. Another side project of this program had Logan's memories tampered with. False memories were added while many were damaged, or erased altogether. The result was a fine-tuned assassin. Over time however his talent went to the use of other groups as he was pitted against various super powered opponents, including the Hulk. Though not long after, Logan was approached by Professor Xavier who requested his help in rescuing his students from a dangerous threat.
                      As the mission came to its completion, Logan made the decision to remain with the X-men, and over the years formed a bond with the Professor and with his teammates which has outlasted all others. Now he finds himself instructing at the very Academy Professor Xavier founded.
