:arrow: Wolverine is near peak human in Strength and Dexterity, and has a superhuman Constitution. His adamantium-laced skeleton I’ve handled using Density, to reflect the added Strength he gets from having that solid frame, a rank of Impervious Protection, and the fact that he carries around half again his weight in adamantium. He also gets a rank of Affects Insubstantial, as incorporeal characters have difficulty phasing through adamantium.

:arrow: In combat, Wolverine is pretty well-balanced. He’s exceptionally skillful with all melee weapons and besides his claws, has wielded a katana on occasion. Rage brings his damage up to its cap, and he can maintain it for ten rounds. If he can’t finish off his foe in that time, Wolverine usually gets handed a beatdown while he’s fatigued. He also has two ranks of Takedown Attack so he can mow through all those ninjas he inevitably ends up facing.

:arrow: Despite a hundred and more years of experiences, Wolverine has Beginner’s Luck to cover all the various skills he has picked up. I feel this to actually be quite appropriate; any time an enemy from his past shows up and triggers a Complication, Wolverine will get a Hero Point which he can then use on Beginner’s Luck and reveal some skill he has picked up in the past. Note that I’ve pared his Languages down to 4 ranks, as well, so he can also use Beginner’s Luck on his Languages skill now.

:arrow: It should be reasonably easy to reconstruct a build of Wolverine with no adamantium: remove the Density power, remove the Penetrating Extra from Strike, and add a rank to the recovery rate of each damage condition for Regeneration.
