10 Facts You Need to Know About Wolverine
6. HE’S THE BEST AT WHAT HE DOES…
Wolverine’s iconic catchphrase – “I’m the best there is at what I do, but what I do best isn’t very nice” – was coined in a 1982 miniseries entitled Wolverine. The series, from Chris Claremont and Sin City‘s Frank Miller, was the first of the original flagship title created for the character and greatly influenced the future of Wolverine.
The latest Wolverine spinoff film, The Wolverine, was largely based on Claremont and Miller’s original mini-series, where Wolverine travels to Japan to seek out Mariko Yashida. However, Hugh Jackman actually uttered the famous catchphrase in a prior Wolverine film – X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The catchphrase has also made an appearance in cartoons and video games.
