X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Categories: [ TV/Cinema/X-Men ]



James Logan has a mutation that makes him immortal and gives him retractable claws. With his half-brother, also a mutant, they fight in all the american wars until the Vietnam war. James and Victor (and other mutants) are hired by Stryker as commandos to steal a mysterious meteorite, but Logan quits at the end of the operation, disgusted by the gratuitous killings. Six years later (in 1979) Stryker meets Logan in Canada and warns him that someone is killing the members of the mutant commando. Logan refuses to listen to Stryker and soon after his girlfriend Kayla is killed by Victor. When Stryker offers him a means to get his revenge on Victor, Logan accepts and becomes a subject in an experiment: infusing adamantium (an alloy created from the meteorite) into his skeleton to make it indestructible. The experiment is successful, but Loga ecapes when he overhears that Stryker plans to erase his memory. Chased by Stryker's men, Logan attempts to find “The Island” where Stryker's base of operations is locate; this happens to be hidden in Three Mile Island, below the nuclear powerplant. Logan discovers that his girlfriend is not dead, and that it was a ploy to convince him to participate in the experiment. Stryker then attempts to kill Logan through his last experiment, XI, a engineered mutant who has superpowers from many different, now-dead mutants. While Kayla helps all the mutants who are prisoner at the facility (and dies, for good, in the attempt), Logan, with the help from Victor, fight XI and provoque the famous catastrophe of Three Mile Island.
