Default Wolverine

Yes, I'm going to attempt the insane - stat a major Marvel character. There are so many continuities that it's impossible. You can't stat Wolverine. But maybe you can sketch the outlines of my impression of the character. The Wolverine of my childhood, which would be ca. Dark Phoenix saga.

Wolverine
Logan; 5'3"; 195 lbs. (?); Black hair

ST 20 [100]; DX 18 [160] IQ 11 [20]; HT 18 [80]
Basic Attributes: Damage: 2d-1/3d+2; Basic Lift: 80 lbs.; HP: 30 [20]; Will: 18 [35]; Per 20 [45]; FP 18; Basic Speed: 11.00 [40]; Basic Move: 10 [-5]

Advantages
Animal Empathy [5]
Claws (Talons) (Armor Divisor (10) +200%) [24]
Combat Reflexes [15]
Danger Sense [15]
Extended Lifespan 2 [4]
High Pain Threshold [10]
Injury Tolerance (Unbreakable Bones) [10]
Japanese (Native/Native) [6]
Language Talent [10]
Luck (Ridiculous) [60]
Outdoorsman 4 [40]
Trained by a Master [30]
Very Fit [15]

Super Advantages (Mutant -10%):
Catfall [5]
Discriminatory Smell (Emotion Sense, +50%) [21]
Regeneration (Extreme) [135]
Regrowth [36]
Resistant (Metabolic Hazards, Immune) [27]
Unkillable 2 [90]

Disadvantages:
Amnesia (Partial) [-10]
Berserk (Battle Rage +50%) (15) [-7]
Bloodlust (12) [-10]
Duty: X-Men (12) [-10]
Impulsiveness (12) [-10]
Intolerance (Authority figures) [-5]
Loner (12) [-5]
Overconfidence (12) [-5]
Social Stigma (Mutant/Monster) [-15]
Stubbornness [-5]

Perks:
Skintight [1]

Quirks:
Goes on alcohol and smoking binges [-1]

Wildcard Skills:
Driving!-18 [24]; Gun!-18 [24]; Fist!-25 [108]; Move!-20 [48]

Skills:
Blind Fighting-20 [8]; Body Language-20 [16]; Broadsword-18 [2]; Detect Lies-20 [12]; Fast-Draw (Ammo, Gun, Broadsword, Two-Handed Sword)-19 [4]; Fast-Talk-12 [4]; First Aid-11 [1]; Gambling-11 [2]; Gesture-11 [1]; Immovable Stance-18 [4]; Interrogation-14 [12]; Intimidation-20 [4]; Kiai-18 [4]; Naturalist-15† [4]; Navigation (Land)-15† [2]; Philosophy (Zen)-15 [20]; Survival (Arctic)-24† [2]; Greatsword-18 [2]

† +4 from Outdoorsman

This is obviously a first, rough draft. Any comments will be pondered.

ETA: Made him somewhat less of an omni-talent. Where's Armor Divisor (100)? I can't find it.

Shouldn't Area Knowledge be somewhere more northward, eh?

Wouldn't it be better to give him "Emotion Sense" to Discriminatory Smell rather than full Empathy?

Also, I'd give him straight up Armor Divisor 100. He cuts through anything except adamantium or similar "super" substances.

Also, depending on much you want to emulate the meta-side of it (he does have Luck) consider Destiny (Mary Sue) [15], Serendipity [several levels] and Wild Talent (focused: Whatever can be written into his endless backstory) [20].

Good points. I also forgot that he speaks like 30 languages... will get into that.

While I always liked Wolverine I cannot say that I followed him closely enough in recent years to be distinguish between the assorted versions of him, but I have a few questions:

5' 3", 300lb? I don't recall him being that short, I would have guessed at least in the 5' 9" area, and even with the adamantium I am not sure he would be so heavy.

Shouldn't the Claws be Long Talons?

Why Luck, and why Language Talent (noting that he has no languages)?

Why all the martial arts skills, like Sword! and Pressure Secrets? I don't remember him so much as a ninja as a brawler.

Can you apply AD on claws like that - shouldn't you apply it to your STR also in this case.

This is the inevitable outcome of Wolverine being fanficed in the actual comics.

He was bona-fide Trained By A Master in Japan by the ninja master Ogun at some point in his backstory.

Though I myself prefer the brawling Wolverine version who could get his butt kicked by the more technical Cyclops in hand to hand if Cyclops played him right.

I'm going from the Wikipedia article, because why the hell not?

Quote:
During his time in Japan and other countries, Wolverine becomes a master of virtually all forms of martial arts and is experienced in virtually every fighting style on Earth. He is proficient with most weaponry, including firearms, though he is partial to bladed weapons. He has demonstrated sufficient skills to defeat the likes of Shang-Chi and Captain America in single combat. He also has a wide knowledge of the body and pressure points. He is also an accomplished pilot and highly skilled in the field of espionage and covert operations.
Quote:
He is fluent in English, Japanese, Russian, Chinese, Cheyenne, Spanish, Arabic, and Lakota; he also has some knowledge of French, Filipino, Thai, Vietnamese, German, Italian, Portuguese, Korean, Hindi, and Persian.
Dear God. Maybe I should just give a Wildcard skill that covers all skills and be done with it...
