Wolverine’s story became a convoluted mess, and it only got worse when the movie tackled Weapon X. This take had the character actually agree to let them experiment on him, and he didn’t lose his memory until he was shot by what fans have since dubbed a magic bullet. Thank goodness The Wolverine actually gave us a much better solo outing for the fan favourite mutant!
