When James is allowed to go outside, he and Rose play with Thomas Logan's son Dog Logan. Thomas is the groundskeeper for the Howletts. Dog attempts to force himself on Rose and kills James dog. This anger John Howlett and he throws Thomas and his son off the property, firing him. Thomas, angry and drunk breaks into the Howlett home. James is awakened by the sound and walks into his parents bedroom and sees his father shot down by Thomas. James, enraged extends his claws for the first time killing Thomas and slashing Dog across the face. Elizabeth Howlett, after seeing her husband killed and her sons claws, kills herself. Rose takes James and runs into the woods. Here they move to British Columbia but Dog, who has woken up, blames all the killings on Rose. James has no memory of the events due to the trauma and Rose covers their tracks by giving him the name Logan and saying that she and him are cousins. Logan, working at as a miner, develops his mutant powers and is given the nickname "Wolverine" by his co-workers. Dog eventually finds Logan and Rose on behalf of Logans grandfather who wants to see his grandson one last time. Dog still holds a grudge against Logan and the two fight. Logan attempts to extend his claws and Rose is knocked into the crowd, impaling herself. Logan, driven mad, runs away and lives in the woods, becoming feral.
