REAL NAME: James Howlett
1st APPEARANCE: The Incredible Hulk #180 (1974)
BIO: The man known as Logan has lived a very long and brutal life. His incredible healing ability allowed him to survive a procedure that forcibly fused unbreakable adamantium to his bones when he was kidnapped by the clandestine government research project, Weapon X. Many years ago, when the X-Men were presumed dead, Logan assumed the alias of Patch -- a rough-and-tumble bar owner in Madripoor, a hotbed of criminal activity. The eye patch he wore made for an effective disguise, as Wolverine's healing factor would restore a lost eye. Ironically, now that his healing factor is gone he has donned the patch once more to infiltrate Madripoor.
