X-Men Origins: Wolverine tells the tale of Logan (born Jack), as he goes from unsure young boy to the amnesia-stricken killer we meet in the first X-Men. Starting with the discovery of his mutant powers in 1845, Logan (Hugh Jackman) runs off with his brother Victor (Liev Schreiber). Working together as a pair, the two fight in four wars (The Civil War, World War I, World War II, and Vietnam). After Vietnam, the duo are approached by William Stryker (Danny Huston), who invites them to join a secret mutant strike force. When the team begins killing innocent people, Logan abandons them, and his brother Victor. Relocating to the Canadian Rockies, Logan finds love and a simple life, until Victor returns and kills Logan’s girlfriend. Stryker pops out of the woodwork, explaining to Logan that Victor has gone rogue, and offers Logan the chance to make himself indestructible by grafting a metal called adamantium to his bones. Logan agrees, and in the process becomes a new man: Wolverine.
