We’ve found some of the best authentic and realistic Wolverine costumes for men, and they are awesome. At Superheroes Central we are huge fans of comic book superheroes, and although we love pretty much all of them, every now and again we are lucky enough to write about a superhero that is a cut above the rest. And for us that’s Wolverine, we love him and we’re not alone, ever since the world’s first Canadian superhero appeared in The Incredible Hulk issues #180-181 way back in 1974, wearing his signature blue and yellow costume, he has been an instant fan favourite. Created by Len Wein and Herb Trimp with some input from John Romita Sr, he was a new and dangerous superhero, who along with an indestructible adamantium skeleton and claws, a powerful mutant healing factor and as it turns out had a bad case of amnesia. As the decades passed, fans demanded more and more details of his mysterious past, and although the story hasn’t always been linear, with retcons and false memories along the way what we ended up with was although we initially knew him simply as Logan, he was actually born James Howlett and he was born in the 1880’s(so yes just a bit older than professor X)

Wolverine Costume Ideas For The Adults
As we said earlier Wolverine is an absolute fan favourite and so we’ve come up with a few Wolverine costume ideas for the adults. The first one we want to talk about is a simple costume design based on Hugh Jackman’s look in the X-Men and Wolverine franchise of films, although some of the films haven’t done as well as others, Jackman’s portrayal as the Wolverine is always a ray of sunshine for fans and critics alike, he has been masterful. And so emulating Jackman’s look in the films is as simple as pair of jeans and a white T-Shirt or singlet and a pair of the claws which you can find at the bottom of this page, it’s as easy as that to have a simple Wolverine movie costume. But if you are looking for a classic Wolverine costume from the comics we founds three items that might fit the bill for you, first up we have two full length yellow bodysuit costumes, then we have a quick and easy Wolverine T-Shirt and mask costume. Unfortunately we were dismayed by the lack of range and poor quality of other costumes and so we felt that these three were the best Wolverine costumes that we could find. Having said that, all the reviews for the three costumes had the same two complaints running through them, and that is the mask and claws on all of the costumes are substandard, and although they were very happy with the main portion of the costume, most people agreed that you should upgrade the mask and claws at the time of purchase. To help you out, we have put the best Wolverine claws and mask that we could find for a reasonable price point and very positive reviews at the bottom of this page. We hope this helps.
Best Adult Cosplay Wolverine Costume
Finally we have the best adult cosplay Wolverine costume out there, we like the other two costumes but this was our clear favourite, it just looks the part. When we compile these costume pages, sometimes a great costume is all there, straight off the store shelf. And sometimes after reading the reviews we realise that sometimes that you have to find a great starting piece, for a great costume, and add other great pieces to make it something special. And this polyester blue and yellow jumpsuit is that great starting piece, it comes with a great X-men belt, but claws and mask are subpar compared to the jumpsuit. But again this is easily remedied with accessories you’ll find just below. We would like to point out the image below is for a costume that only comes in medium sizes from this seller but for whatever reason you find this costume in extra large here. Truly despite it’s flaws, with a bit of tweaking this has the potential to definitely be the best Wolverine cosplay costume for men out there.

Sometimes the classics are the best, because some of his outfits are definitely not winners, don’t believe us? Check it out for yourself(don’t say we didn’t warn you)
Thanks to the longer lifespan provided by his mutant healing factor, Wolverine is well over a hundred years old and as you would expect he’s been through a lot, including fighting in both world wars, being a mercenary for hire, a samurai and of course being a superhero as a member of the X-men. Born in the 1880’s in Canada, Wolverine has spent much of his life as a soldier/mercenary gifted with a healing ability which allows to recover from horrific and otherwise fatal wounds and a somewhat lethal and berserker temperament he has always been at the forefront of any conflict he’s involved in. Sometime after World War 2 Wolverine was recruited into a team of super powered mutant mercenaries named Team X along with his mortal enemy Sabretooth. But it wasn’t until his involvement in the black ops Weapon X program, that he really came into his own as a perfect killing machine, as they grafted the indestructible metal known as Adamantium onto his skeleton, which coupled with his potent healing factor made him virtually unstoppable(unless your Magneto).
Unfortunately for the man who was born James Howlett his involvement with these secret government organisations came at great personal cost, as has been the subject of so much mind wiping, reprogramming and memory implantation that is unaware of his true identity, name and past. And he become known simply as Logan. Knowing that Wolverine was a mutant being experimented on and exploited by the Canadian government, Charles Xavier(or Professor X if you prefer) arranged an introduction, and offered Logan a spot at his school. The Weapon X program agreed to release Logan because they implanted a subliminal order for him to kill Xavier, but knowing this, Xavier simply removed the command(kind of a dumb plan to try on the world’s most powerful telepath). It was as an X-Man that Logan would finally find a home and come to call his team mates, friends.
Although his first appearance was fighting the Incredible Hulk, as an X-men fighting alongside Cyclops, Storm, Gambit, Rogue, Colossus, Iceman and others he has regularly saved the world from plots of world domination or destruction, not that the X-men get much thanks for their efforts, as they are hated and feared for being mutants and have even been wanted fugitives at times. As one of the more popular Marvel characters Wolverine has teamed up the likes of Deadpool, Spiderman, Captain America, Black Widow and many more.
