Wolverine was for many years one of Marvel's most mysterious characters, as he had no memory of his earlier life and the origins of his distinctive Adamantium skeleton and claws.

It is clear however that Wolverine was raised in a devoutly Christian home in Alberta, Canada. His family appears to have been Protestant, although this is not certain. At least into his teen years, Wolverine had a strong belief in God and was a prayerful person who strived to live by specific Christian ethics and moral teachings.

Wolverine has indeed expressed disbelief and frustration with God in isolated stories and a story delving into Wolverine's past showed how he became an atheist during World War II after his girlfriend was killed by the villain Cyber.

But Wolverine has certainly changed and developed, while having many influential experiences and not a few theological discussions, since then. For example, Wolverine has actually been to Heaven. It is safe to say to say that Wolverine has been an atheist in the past, but too many stories have established Logan as having found and practiced religious faith to characterize the current character as an atheist.

The character's growing popularity led to a solo, four-issue limited series, Wolverine (Sept.-December 1982), by Claremont and Frank Miller, followed by the six-issue Kitty Pryde and Wolverine by Claremont and Al Milgrom (November 1984 - April 1985).

Marvel launched an ongoing solo book written by Claremont with art by John Buscema in November 1988. It ran for 189 issues. Larry Hama later took over the series and had an extensive run.

During the 1990s, the character was revealed to have bone claws, after his adamantium is ripped out by Magneto in X-Men #25, which was inspired by a passing joke of Peter David's.

Wolverine has a highly developed personal sense of morality and ethics that seems to be of his own devising, and not derived from any specific belief system.

However, Japanese culture (including Bushido and a Samurai sense of honor), as well as the teachings of Charles Xavier, have been important influences in the formation of Logan's belief system.

Another important aspect of Wolverine's goals and personal code of ethics is his drive to regain and retain his humanity in the wake of his transformation into a living weapon at the hands the Weapon X program, the military/intelligence program which infused his skeleton with adamantium and trained him as a deadly operative.

Wolverine also works to keep his anger in check, lest he slip into one of his deadly berserker rages.

Bowen Designs have produced another classic Marvel statue, and this one is sure to delight Wolverine fans and collectors.

This high quality detailed Faux Bronze collectible polystone statue stands an impressive 12" in height.

He comes complete with two bases for alternate display.

A must have for any serious Wolverine collector
