The fearless and fierce superhero known as Wolverine first appeared in 1974 in one of the The Incredible Hulk comic book releases. The character was created by writer Len Wein with artistic work done by John Romita, Sr. and Herm Trimpe. Wolverine is the archetypal antihero that challenges authority to further his cause that is always aimed for the greater good. This antihero characteristic made Wolverine a favorite among the comic book fans who got bored by all the nice superheroes. Born as James Howlett, Wolverine is also known simply as Logan. He is one of the mutants who faced oppression from the judgmental humans. With a heightened sense of smell, Logan can easily track villains or suspicious individuals. He also has enhanced physical capabilities beyond an average human being.
