Heartwarming / Wolverine

  • Any of the surrogate father relationships he shares with his (typically young and female) sidekicks can be this, but the topper probably goes to adopting his troubled Opposite-Sex Clone X-23 as his legal daughter.
  • His friendship with Nightcrawler is truly amazing. Kurt is one of the very few people he has said a genuine "I love you" to. Kurt's death proves that if you really want to give him the Wound That Will Not Heal, you kill the Elf. When you kill him you injure his soul.
  • He is always present for the funeral of a friend or acquaintance. Doesn't matter if they have healing factors, or if they come back to life more than once; if they die, he goes to the funeral.
  • His death in Death of Wolverine is heartbreaking, but as he sits dying of asphyxiation, he flashes back to all of his memories of life. Just moments before, he'd been taunted by the creator of the Weapon X program, who claimed Wolverine was only good for killing people, and what had he done with his life? Wolverine's last conscious thought? "Enough."
