Wolverine isn't a Type V, his intentions are generally altruistic and he Never Hurt an Innocent.

You're talking about Wolvie in most incarnations, but it has depended wildly.

He has used murder as a first, and sometimes extatically enjoyed, option against lots of opponents who were no threat to him, with no interest in due process whatsoever, including feeding a mental patient to be eaten by a real Wolverine in a Larry Hama issue; used prolonged torture for years on a Yakuza boss who he knew full well would kill thousands in the meantime; and at least in his backstory was involved in lots of covert missions where he did kill tons of innocents.

There have been so many writers and handlings that the only thing we can say for certain is that he's been both a type III, IV, and V from time to time. If you can remember some period when he was a harmless non-bloodthirsty grouchy Disney hero, or if The Superhero Squad Show counts, then we can add type II as well.

I say again, since the scale is currently being redefined, it's best if we hold off on any elaboration of where he falls until that's cleared up.

Due to the current move to redefine/remodel the Sliding Scale Of Anti Heroes, we should avoid a lengthy discussion about where he falls on the scale; see the TRS thread for this page and the sliding scale.

The article is too small, look at Lex Luthor and The Joker they've got better articles, I think Wolverine deserves better!

This is the main Wolverine page. Trope titles are not case sensitive; An Ice Person and A Nice Person go to the same page, as do "Manos" The Hands of Fate and Ma No St He Ha Nd So Ff At E.

I see. So if someone accidentally links it as W Olverine that is how it will look.
