The Evolution of Wolverine’s Costume

From the original yellow spandex to the leather clad Hugh Jackamn, here’s a look at the costume evolution of Marvel’s Wolverine. On today’s highly-requested ‘Yellow Spandex,’ Kya Quinn finally takes a look at the killer Canadian who inspire the series in the first place: Wolverine. As the breakout star of the X-Men, Wolverine has appeared in hundreds of Marvel comics, cartoons, games and Wolverine movies over the course of Wolverine history. Throughout the history of Wolverine, then and now, he’s consistently been clad in countless costumes throughout the comic books. The evolution of Wolverine costume begins in the ‘70s, with his initial yellow and blue design from John Romita. From there, Wolverine evolution went away from bright colors towards an iconic brown and orange design from John Byrne before returning to the classic thanks to Jim Lee. Logan underwent even more changes during the new millennium, but Wolverine, X-Men, and other mutants have always been defined by their colorful costume, and the Canucklehead is no exception.  The X-Men movies and Wolverine movies, on the other hand, have always disappointed in terms of their costume design. The Hugh Jackman Wolverine is one of the most iconic superhero performances of all time, but the X Men movies have always shied away from Yellow Spandex. In fact, they made it a joke. So sadly, we never got to see the Hugh Jackman Logan movie running around in tights and a mask, instead we were stuck with the lousy leather jumpsuits established in the first XMen movie. NowThis Nerd Kya has never been a fan, and she hopes that in the future, the Wolverine movies will have a more appropriate Wolverine costume. » Subscribe to NowThis Nerd:
