Wolverine was one of the first anti-authority anti-hero (Captain Jack Sparrow - another famous anti-hero) who did not believe in playing fair and just (so unlike Clark Kent/Superman) but preferred hitting below the belt, fighting dirty and using deadly force and whatever means to bring an opponent down, sometimes permanently. Professor X and Cyclops had to try to rein him in at times but when Wolverine goes into his "berserker rage", there's no holding back. Despite his apparent ease at taking lives, he does not enjoy killing or giving into his berserker rages. Logan a.k.a. Wolverine adheres to a firm code of personal honor and morality. (source: Wiki)
This 1/6 Wolverine was released by Medicom as part of their Marvels line. He was the first character to be released for obvious reasons - he's one of the most famous and recognizable, especially after the X-Men movie came out. Wolverine's supposed to be short but strangely, Medicom made him tall, a company famous for releasing puny 12" figures.
Wolverine, adamantium claws and all
Medicom's 1/6 Wolverine comes with an additional head sculpt - Wolverine without his mask i.e. Logan (born James Howlett). Logan's hair shape is similar to his costume mask - LOL. Dave Cockrum was the first artist to draw Wolverine without his mask and the distinctive hairstyle became a trademark of the character. This was interpreted quite well in the movie version with Hugh Jackman (PEOPLE magazine's sexisest man alive 2008) playing the role of Wolverine. The make-up artists managed to bring across the styling rather well.
Wolverine's costume has gone through many changes but this yellow and blue combination is the most recognizable
