In anticipation of the fast approaching 'The Wolverine' movie, 'Halloween Costumes' has come up with a detailed infographic showing the history of Wolverine concepts. From the unmasked beast of 1996 to the shirtless wonder of 2013, all of the iconic outfits are covered.
There were many changes along the way, some like the noseless version in 1996 received such negative fan reaction that it was quietly scrapped and never spoken of again. The biggest challenge along the way was trying to have an evolving character being shown in comics, television and film. It's interesting to note that the longest lasting costume was actually the brown version, which had a run of 127 months. Despite the ever-evolving imagery, the history of Wolverine is rich and full of back-stories that allow the audience to feel connected to the rugged superhero.
