Don't miss out this 1990s classic Wolverine, bub! The Wolverine Modern Yellow Collector's Gallery Statue is big, beautiful, and complete with metal claws. The first appearance of the fan-favorite character Wolverine was in The Incredible Hulk #180-181 published in 1974. Then Marvel Editor-in-Chief Roy Thomas and writer Len Wein created Wolverine, and his original costume was designed by legendary artist and art director John Romita Sr. In his first appearance you can see the hints of what his costume would evolve into with his signature mask flairs, tiger stripes and signature blue, yellow and red costume... and maybe just a hint of berserker rage in his eyes!
