10 Facts You Need to Know About Wolverine
7. HE’S NOT JUST A MEMBER OF THE X-MEN
Despite being a self-described loner, Wolverine is one of the most well-known and popular members of the X-Men. He was first recruited to the X-Men in 1975, a year after his debut in The Incredible Hulk #180, and since that time, he’s appeared on at least 13 different Marvel teams.
In fact, he’s joined up with some of Marvel’s most popular teams, such as the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D., and the Fantastic Four. He’s a central member of Alpha Flight – Canada’s premiere superhero team – and he also founded the Hard 7 and the Jean Grey Academy.
At one point, he was even reprogrammed by Hydra. As a Hydra operative, he killed several heroes before S.H.I.E.L.D. was able to step in and deprogram him.
