*The Origin of Wolverine. The greatest mystery of the Marvel Universe...until now.
To many, Wolverine is Marvel's finest hero-the best there as at what he does. Genetics, environment, divine intervention: what incredible forces created this man-the world's greatest killing machine with a heart as big as the great outdoors?
For years we followed Wolverine in the desperate search for his past, from the wilds of the Canadian wilderness to the teeming cities of Japan and beyond. But despite his perseverance and longing for the truth, Wolverine remained an enigma to himself and all those around him.
Years into the past we find three friends, brought together through fate, soon to be divided by tragedy. James Howlett, a sickly boy, stuck in a world where the weak are mocked and left behind. Rose, a young orphan girl summoned to work at the wealthy Howlett estate. And Dog, a poor boy abused by his father, with no hope for a better life. Three friends on the verge of having their innocence shattered. Three companions about to be confronted by the most shocking events of their lives.
Welcome to the greatest story never told.
