X-Men Origins: Wolverine's Birthplace
X-Men Origins: Wolverine is set to hit theaters Friday May 1st, and with so much drama in the XMO we put together the beginnings of a travel map that takes you to some of the places the Marvel crew have come from and gone to over the years. This is an organic map, so feel free to add to it in comments and we will plot the additional travel spots we find there.
Wolverine is a mutant whose primary power is the ability to heal quickly, typically referred to as his mutant healing factor. Despite popular belief, Wolverine was born with claws of bone. After he joined the Weapon X program, his skeleton was reinforced with adamantium (an indestructible metal). This is where his healing abilities really came in handy because each time he activated his claws, they would tear through his skin (ouch).
According to Origin, a limited series comic published by Marvel, Wolverine was born in a mining colony in Northern Alberta, Canada. His father, James Howlett, was a wealthy 19th Century plantation owner. Northern Alberta is also home to one of Canada's largest national parks, Wood Buffalo National Park. Open year round for hiking, boating,camping and fishing, Wood Buffalo can be reached by plane via Edmonton.
Wolverine didnít stay in the colony for long. He left to live alone in the wilderness. From there, he joined a group of Blackfoot Indians, enlisted in the Canadian Army, spent time on the fictional island of Madripoor, and finally settled for a time in Japan.
