Much of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” takes place in the ’70s, which sees Logan and Victor Creed serving in the Vietnam War. They’re recruited by Maj. William Stryker for Team X, a squad of mutants tasked with dangerous missions. Logan decides that being a mercenary isn’t for him, so he leaves the team and heads to Canada to live a simpler life as a lumberjack. However, when his lover, Silverfox, is seemingly killed by Creed, Logan accepts Stryker’s offer to undergo a procedure to have adamantium grafted to his skeleton, including his natural claws, to get revenge on his half-brother. When Logan discovers that this was all part of a plan to turn him into a mindless soldier, he wreaks havoc on Stryker’s facility. He releases the mutants Stryker was experimenting on, who are soon rescued by Professor X. This ordeal strips Logan of his memory, sending him down a path to uncover his past.

Many of the events depicted in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” are dramatically altered when, in 1973, the consciousness of the older Logan is sent back into his younger self on a mission to stop Raven, now known as Mystique, from assassinating the U.S. president. This event starts a chain reaction that sees Bolivar Trask unleash his mutant-hunting Sentinels, who, decades later, turn the world into a dystopian nightmare for humans and mutants alike. Logan is successful and changes the course of the “X-Men” series’ history.
