Go ahead.
Pull the trigger.
But after you do, bub... then you're mine.
× LOUP WAS ABANDONED AT A LOCAL CHURCH WHEN HE WAS A BABY. THERE WAS NO NOTE ATTACHED. NO ONE KNEW HIS NAME OR WHERE HE CAME FROM BUT HE WAS TAKEN IN AND THEN TURNED INTO THE AUTHORITIES. HE STARTED HIS LIFE NAMELESS IN THE SYSTEM UNTIL HE WAS PUT INTO FOSTER CARE. HIS EARLIEST YEARS AREN'T HIS HAPPIEST YEARS AND HE GLADLY, PURPOSELY, BLOCKS THEM OUT AS MUCH AS HE CAN. HE NEVER GOT ADOPTED, AGED OUT OF THE SYSTEM AND FELT LIKE IT WAS THE WORLD'S WAY OF SAYING HE DIDN'T BELONG ANYWHERE. HE WAS PRETTY OKAY WITH THIS, KEEPING A NAME THAT AN OLD, RETIRED NUN THOUGHT SOUNDED COOL BACK IN THE DAY AND GOING FROM THERE.

× HIS TEEN YEARS WERE BASICALLY A MESS. HE HAD NO GUIDANCE, NO PLACE TO KEEP HIM STEADY ON HIS FEET EXCEPT FOR ONE HOME WHEN HE WAS ABOUT 15, LIVING WITH A MIDDLE-AGED WOMAN NAMED JUNIA. HE HAD A COUPLE FOSTER BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THE HOUSE AT THE TIME AND HE WAS THE ONE THEY LOOKED UP TO. JUNIA BELIEVED IN HIM, BUT HE DIDN'T MUCH BELIEVE IN HIMSELF. ULTIMATELY, HE KNEW IT COULD'VE BEEN HIS FOREVER HOME BUT HE WAS ALREADY ON A PATH THAT LET HIM THINK HE DIDN'T DESERVE IT. HE ENDED UP IN TOO MANY FIGHTS WITH TOO MUCH SHIT GOING ON THAT LED HIM DOWN A DARK ROAD WITH NO END IN SIGHT. HE WATCHED A CHILDHOOD FRIEND DIE FROM ACCIDENTAL GUNFIRE WHEN THEY WERE IN A PLACE THEY SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN AND IT SHATTERED A BIT OF HIS PERCEPTION OF THE WORLD. WHEN HE WAS 18, HE HITCHHIKED AROUND THE US UNTIL HE MET SOME SHADY CHARACTERS THAT GOT HIM INTO AN UNDERGROUND WORLD HE PROBABLY WOULD'VE STEERED CLEAR OF IF HE HADN'T BEEN ACHING FOR SOME PLACE TO CALL HIS OWN. THEY TOOK HIM IN, KEPT HIM FED AND LET HIM TRAVEL THE WORLD DOING DIRTY SHIT THAT, IF HE'D GOTTEN CAUGHT, COULD'VE LANDED HIM IN PRISON.

× EXCEPT YOU SEE, LOUP WAS GOOD AT WHAT HE DID. NO, HE WAS EXCELLENT AT WHAT HE DID. HE TOOK UP MANY FORMS OF MARTIAL ARTS AND EXCELLED AT THEM. HE BECAME THE SORT OF LIAR THAT WAS SMOOTH, CHARMING AND DEADLY. HE GOT HIS WAY OR ELSE HE FOUGHT TO GET HIS WAY. HE STARTED GAINING A NAME FOR HIMSELF IN THE UNDERGROUND WORLD AS THE SORT OF YOUNG ASSASSIN THAT GOT THE JOB DONE AND NO ONE WAS EVER AWARE OF HIM UNTIL IT WAS TOO LATE. THEN ONE DAY WHEN HE'S ABOUT 28, HE GETS TASKED TO INFILTRATE THE US AIR FORCE, BECOMING A SENIOR MASTER SERGEANT TO BE EXACT. HE SPENDS THE NEXT 4 YEARS OFF AND ON, DOING THE SORT OF MISSIONS THAT EARN A GUY MEDALS AND SOME OF THE SORT THAT WOULD'VE EARNED HIM A DISHONORABLE DISCHARGE, THOUGH MOST OF THE REASONINGS WERE KEPT HUSH HUSH.

× AFTER THE AIR FORCE ASKED HIM TO RESIGN, HE WENT BACK TO THE LIFE HE WAS USED TO FOR ABOUT A YEAR OR TWO. HE FLITTED FROM ONE BEAUTIFUL WOMAN TO THE NEXT, DEPENDING UPON WHERE HE ENDED UP IN THE WORLD. THERE WAS A MARRIAGE IN THERE THAT LASTED AS LONG AS IT TOOK THE INK TO DRY ON THE PAGE AND THEN THEY BOTH REALIZED THEY WEREN'T MARRIAGE MATERIAL. OR REALLY HE LEARNED THIS FACT AND MOVED AS FAR AWAY AS HE COULD FROM THAT AREA OF HIS LIFE THAT HE COULDN'T HANDLE. THE KILLING, THE JOBS, THE TRACKING, THOSE WERE THE THINGS HE UNDERSTOOD. IT MADE SENSE EVEN IF IT WAS ALL A BIT FUCKED UP. HE DID IT UNTIL HE DIDN'T WANT TO ANYMORE AND SOMETIME IN 2010 HE VANISHED FROM THAT WORLD AS SWIFTLY AS HE'D GOTTEN INTO IT.

× FROM ONE PLACE TO THE NEXT AFTER LOUP GOT OUTTA THE CRIMINAL LIFE, HE WASN'T CERTAIN IF HE'D EVER FIND A PLACE TO CALL HIS OWN. BOSTON SEEMED LIKE IT WOULD FIT ONCE AGAIN AND IT ALL SLID INTO PLACE. SO IN THE BEGINNINGS OF 2011, HE BEGAN TO MAKE A TRUE LIFE FOR HIMSELF THERE, STARTED A BUSINESS AND FELL IN LOVE ONCE, BUT IT, LIKE A LOT OF THINGS IN HIS LIFE WASN'T MEANT TO LAST. HE FOUND HIS PLACE, SO TO SPEAK, OWNING THE HOWLING WOLF B&B AND HE VOWED TO KEEP THAT LIFE AS SAFE AND INTACT AS HE COULD, EVEN IF HE DID GIVE REFUGE TO SOME OF THE SEEDIER KIND OF PEOPLE WHEN THEY STROLLED INTO TOWN. FOR THE MOST PART THOUGH, LIFE IN BOSTON WAS QUIET, JUST AS HE'D WANTED AND HE COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR MORE, OR BETTER, AT THIS STAGE IN HIS LIFE.

× EXCEPT LIFE, IT HAS A WAY OF BRINGING THINGS BACK TO YOU THAT YOU JUST DON'T WANT. LOU BEGAN TO EXPERIENCE THE SHIFTS IN NOVEMBER OF 2016 AND WELL, WHEN HE FOUND HIMSELF INTERTWINED WITH THE X-MAN, WOLVERINE, "NICE AND QUIET" WASN'T HAPPENING, NOT BY A LONG SHOT. HE FOUND OUT CLOSE FRIENDS OF HIS, NEIGHBORS, EXES, THEY ENDED UP BEING CONNECTED TO THIS OTHER SIDE OF HIM AND AS HE NAVIGATED THIS WHOLE NEW WORLD, HIS PAST STARTED COMING BACK TO HAUNT HIM. THE B&B WAS ATTACKED AND NEARLY BURNT DOWN A FEW MONTHS AFTER HE STARTED SHIFTING AND HE LOST A FEW FRIENDS IN THE PROCESS WHICH LED HIM ON A KILLING SPREE FOR REVENGE. HE, JUST LIKE WOLVERINE, WAS THE BEST HE WAS AT WHAT HE DID AND HE HATED HIMSELF FOR THAT. IT'S A CROSS HE BEARS AND NOT ONE HE'S PRONE TO TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT, NOT EVEN THE ONES HE LOVES MOST.

× SO THERE HE WAS, BECOMING MORE AND MORE LIKE LOGAN AND TRYING TO STILL REMEMBER THE MAN THAT HE HAD BEEN, THE MAN THAT HE COULD BE, WHO HADN'T BELIEVED IN VIOLENCE FOR THE SAKE OF VIOLENCE. YET HE WAS MORE THAN LIKELY READY TO DO WHATEVER NEEDED TO BE DONE FOR THOSE HE WAS PROTECTIVE OF, HIS CHOSEN FAMILY, SOME WHO WERE OTHER X-MEN AND SOME WHO WERE NOT. IT DIDN'T MATTER. IF LOGAN KNEW THEY MATTERED TO LOU, THEN THEY MATTERED TO HIM TOO. THROUGH ALL THE MADNESS AND THE TIMES HE WAS TESTED, HE FOUND HIMSELF ATTEMPTING TO GET HIS ADAMANTIUM BACK AFTER AN ILL-CHOSEN FIGHT AGAINST MAGNETO AND IN SEPTEMBER OF 2017, LOU AND LOGAN BECAME ONE, EXPERIENCING WHAT HE'D LEARNED WAS CALLED "LIFTING THE VEIL." THE NEWFOUND CLOSENESS WITH LOGAN ALSO BROUGHT LOU THE STRENGTH TO TELL A CERTAIN FELLOW X-MAN ABOUT HIS OWN FEELINGS THAT HAD BEEN PROMINENT, AND HE FOUND HIMSELF EMBARKING ON A NEW PATH ALONGSIDE LOLA AKA STORM. HE HAS NO IDEA WHERE HE'S GOING FROM HERE, BUT WITH HER BESIDE HIM AND HIS SELF-MADE FAMILY AS SAFE AS THEY CAN BE ON A DAILY BASIS, HE'S PRETTY MUCH READY FOR ANY DAMN THING.

× EXCEPT "ANY DAMN THING" APPARENTLY INCLUDED A KID. A KID HE HAD NEVER KNOWN ABOUT, THAT HAD BEEN BORN BACK WHEN LOU WAS BARELY 16 AND OBVIOUSLY HAD NO CLUE ABOUT LIFE OR BEING A FATHER. THE KID WAS NO LONGER A KID WHEN HE BECAME PART OF LOU'S LIFE. ONE DAY, IN JANUARY OF 2019, THE KID SHOWED UP TO TELL LOU THAT HE WAS THE YOUNG MAN'S FATHER. NAVIGATING THIS NEW ROLE IN HIS LIFE HASN'T BEEN SIMPLE, AND SOME FEELINGS LOU HAS HAD HAVE BEEN COMPLICATED, BUT HE TOLD MAX HE WOULD BE THERE, THAT HE WANTED A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM, KNOWING THE LAST 24 YEARS COULDN'T BE MADE UP FOR, BUT HE'D DO HIS DAMNEDEST. SO THEY AGREED TO LET IT HAPPEN, TO SEE IF THEY COULD FORGE A RELATIONSHIP WITH ONE ANOTHER AND NOW LOU'S LIFE AND HIS MAKESHIFT FAMILY IS JUST A LITTLE BIT FULLER THAN HE'D EXPECTED.

name Loup "Lou" Hennessy (Alleged) comicverse Wolverine | James Howlett date of birth (age) May 21, 1978 (41) birthplace Unknown current residence San Francisco, California occupation Owner of The Howling Wolf B&B relationship status Thunderstruck
Wolverine's life began in Cold Lake, Alberta, Canada, sometime between 1882 and 1885, a couple of weeks before the 19th of April. The mutant who would come to be known simply as "Logan" was born James Howlett, the illegitimate son of Elizabeth Howlett (who was married to John Howlett, owner of a large estate) and the Howletts' grounds-keeper, Thomas Logan...

During his leadership of Alpha Flight, Wolverine was approached by Charles Xavier, attracted by his fight with the Hulk (as Romulus expected), who was looking for mutants to help his students, the X-Men, to escape from the island-being known as Krakoa. Wolverine resigned from Department H to accompany Professor Xavier and rescue the captured X-Men.[42] Wolverine, under Romulus' instructions, tried to assassinate Xavier, but he broke Romulus' hold on Wolverine by blocking the effects of his programming. Neither man knew their enemy's identity at the time. After Krakoa was defeated, Wolverine decided to stay with the X-Men, at the School for Gifted Youngsters, with fellow new recruits Storm, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Thunderbird, and Banshee, as the original members left to pursue a normal life [Source]
