Wolverine: Origin TPB [2001] by Paul Jenkins & Andy Kubert

WOLVERINE: ORIGIN TRADE PAPERBACK
In 2001, the origin of Wolverine is revealed as well as his real name James Howlett. The limited series was the result of a successful X-Men film by Bryan Singer. Editor-In-Chief Joe Quesada wanted to reveal the origin before Hollywood did. New characters were born in the form of Dog who is playing apart within Wolverine and the X-Men by Jason Aaron. In November 2013, the sequel to Origin continues where the first one left off with Mr. Sinister as the main villain. Overall the first series could have been better. The first two issues were exciting as many fans believed Dog would become Wolverine instead of the sick James Howlett. The second issue revealed who was Wolverine as James killed Dog’s father with his claws. The rest of the issues were fillers instead of a real test of character.
