If we compare the modern Logan then he appears to be less violent now as compared to the 80s and 90s comic line. Recently in Fantastic Four #3, the four famous heroes come across a violent possessed Human Torch in Las Vegas.

The incident is followed by a demon who commands Human Torch the hero using demon fire and sadly Wolverine came under his brutal demonic fire. Anyhow, his healing abilities helped him to survive but he faces another attack which is the Ghost Rider’s Penance stare. This attack caused him to see the number of victims he had killed before making him realize how evil he is.

He recovers but it’s a side effect of his mutant healing factor, that’s why he remembers just a few pieces of his memory. Previously, in the Ultimate X-Men series, he even killed a mutant child because of his uncontrollable mutant power. At this point, he realizes himself as an evil mutant and sadly he can’t remember every element of his memory.

From his origin to his journey, he used to be a good guy. But we can’t say that all his suffering and torture didn’t turn him evil because the torture was intended to make him evil. Turning into evil was part of the torture, affected by his nature or by those that would use his power. And this made him do something good.

Wolverine’s violence is a basic factor of his mutation, his wild side and furious rages are a part that carries with his claws as well as his healing factor. With the help of the military, Hudson’s, or the X-Men, he is still trying and constantly struggling to control his wild nature. We can’t hate because it’s his defining personal characteristic. This character isn’t a wildman but one must respect this guy because he is a man who follows supreme discipline controlling both his mind and the wild side that shares his body.
