- I'm not sure what happened to me, or why. But it did. I got over it. I didn't waste time crying about it. I got up and I found answers. I didn't like what I found, but I'm living with that knowledge right now and it haunts me. You think you have problems? Try walking a mile in my shoes, kid.
On a surprisingly cold summer day in Japan, a man named James Howlett opened his eyes, laying on the cold surface of a rooftop, not knowing what was going on. His first thought was that he was drunk from last night, but he didn't know what he did last night, in fact, he couldn't remember anything. He looked around and found a bullet shell, an abandoned gun, still loaded, and when he looked in his pockets he discovered a driver's license with the name James Howlett and he figured that must be him.
James made his way to a bar where he used the fake name Logan Hudson. Not five minutes after sitting down, the bar was raided by ninjas wearing red costumes that disappeared straight into thin air, traveling through a different dimension, and coming out in a different spot. They seemed to want James, and he had no idea why. he tried to fight them, and when he did, metal claws popped out of his hands and he killed all of them. Horrified and not knowing what to do, he grabbed one of the still breathing bodies and ran out.
James brought the ninja to the same rooftop he woke up on and woke him up by stabbing his leg. He didn't know why, but he seemed to like violence. After asking the ninja several questions he learned several things. His name is in fact James Howlett, and he was a mutant runaway teenager kidnapped by the Hand in order to be brainwashed and inducted. During the experimental phase, they bonded his skeleton to a liquid metal substance called Adamantium. James fought the Hand and attempted to free the other children, but was unsuccessful, and they were all killed. Before the Hand could do anything, James ran away. The Hand chased him and eventually reached him in the City of Japan. One of the Hand Assassin Operatives, the only Hand agents that were not ninjas, shot James in the head with a Vibranium bullet, the only known substance that can penetrate Adamantium. The ninjas left his seemingly dead body on the roof top as a statements to the other mutants.
