IMUC-Chapter 66 The Wolverine

Previous ChapterNext Chapter


If you were to ask Kyle about his favorite superhero in the entire Avengers universe, he might struggle to come up with an answer right away. But if you were to ask him about his favorite character in the entire Marvel Universe series, there is no doubt that it would be the Wolverine.

“Wolverine?” Unable to contain his surprise, Kyle spoke up as he looked at the weathered man in the corner, dragging on his cigarette. He never expected to encounter this man in the midst of the battle.

“Who are you?” The weathered man glanced at Kyle with a puzzled expression.

“My name is Kyle, a Brigadier General officer in the US military,” Kyle introduced himself after taking a deep breath.

“A Brigadier General officer… and you’re alone in enemy territory?” The weathered man looked even more skeptical and it was as if he had never heard of the legendary American hero. He asked, “How old are you?”

“Twenty-three, almost twenty-four,” Kyle shrugged and took a step forward. As he entered the three-meter range of the weathered man, the information displayed on the Ability Card attached to him became clear.

[Soviet Language Mastery], [Yoga Mastery], [True Assassination Mastery], [True Rifle Mastery], [True Combat Warfare Mastery], [True Ancient Martial Combat Mastery], [True Two Saber Style Mastery]…

With countless green and white cards in sight, it was impossible to count the exact number. Judging from the predominance of fighting skill-related Green Ability Cards, there were easily over a hundred of them.

Even though Kyle had collected Ability Cards from tens of thousands of soldiers and officers in the US military, he only had seen a maximum of around thirty or so cards on a single person. Having over a hundred combat-oriented Green Ability Cards meant that this man had mastered almost every fighting skill on Earth.

But that wasn’t all…

Kyle’s gaze fell on the weathered man, specifically on the two Ability Cards in his possession. One was a Deep Blue Card, and the other was a Light Blue Card.

[Wolverine Gene]: Genetic mutation resulting in a mutant physiology and temperament similar to a lone wolf. Rare Blue Ability Card.

Three sharp bone claws extend from the palms of both hands, connected to the arm bones, making them resilient and sharp.

The human body tends towards a wolf-like nature and gains the talents and characteristics of a wolf, including enhanced strength and speed, heightened senses, sharp vision, an acute sense of smell, a natural inclination for combat, and a preference for solitude, killing, and hunting prey.

Due to the innate nature of a lone wolf, the possessor of this gene naturally prefers solitude and is not accustomed to living in groups. Uncontrolled wild rampages may lead to indiscriminate killing.

Current Status: Restricted by the ‘Rare Blue’ prefix, Non-Extractable.

In terms of lethality alone, the lone wolf physique far surpassed the Super Soldier Physique.

This was Kyle’s analysis and evaluation after reading the description of the Rare Blue Ability Card [Wolverine Gene]. While his Super Soldier physique was an all-around enhancement of human capabilities, the Wolverine Gene pushed the limits of savagery and bloodlust, resulting in even greater combat prowess.

As if having such an abnormal [lone wolf physique] card wasn’t enough, the weathered man also possessed another card…

[Healing Factor]: The Healing Factor present in the human body. Blue Ability Card.

The Healing Factor flows throughout the body with the bloodstream, attached to the bone marrow, and even exists within every genetically modified cell of a life form.

Any self-inflicted injury can be naturally and rapidly healed by the Healing Factor, including life-threatening wounds, which can be completely recovered within half a day. (While the Healing Factor can be suppressed by Gene Suppressors, it can only temporarily suppress the effects. Given enough time, injuries can still heal.)

The Healing Factor indefinitely slows down the aging process of the body, extending lifespan.

Current Status: Extractable, can coexist with physique enhancement abilities.

“Wolverine Gene, Healing Factor… is it really Wolverine? If it’s not him, who else could possess such an incredibly abnormal physique?”

Kyle was shocked in his heart, but his expression remained calm as he looked at the weathered man and said, “I’ve introduced myself, what about you, sir?”

“I’m just a soldier in the Soviet Army, nothing much to introduce,” The weathered man said, waving his hand dismissively. He casually tossed his cigarette butt on the ground and was about to leave on his own.

He didn’t really believe that Kyle was a Brigadier General officer in the US military. Even if he was, it had nothing to do with him.

“Wait a minute,” Kyle spoke up, trying to stop him. However, the weathered man quickened his pace and headed toward the street.

Kyle narrowed his eyes and followed suit, accelerating his speed as well. He didn’t want to let this opportunity slip away.

In this world, there were no Mutants— that’s what he had learned back at the training base. But now, he had come across a man who seemed to resemble Wolverine, and that was surprising.

“This is getting annoying,” The weathered man muttered as he ran while glancing back at Kyle who was closely tailing him. He couldn’t shake him off, no matter how fast he ran.

“What exactly do you want? Do you want a fight?” The weathered man stopped in his tracks and turned around, speaking coldly.

“Just you alone? Don’t you have comrades or brothers on the battlefield?” Kyle looked around, confirming that he hadn’t seen anyone else since their encounter.

If this really was the Wolverine he knew, then where was his big brother, Sabertooth?

The weathered man snorted. “No comrade can match up to me. Brothers? I never had any brothers!”

No brothers?

Kyle furrowed his brow. The weathered man didn’t seem like he was casually lying. He truly resembled a lone wolf.

After a moment of contemplation, Kyle reached into the side pouch where he had his energy pistol holstered. As the weathered man grew wary, Kyle discreetly materialized a pack of cigarettes and threw it over, saying, “Looks like you’re out of smokes. I’ll give you a pack.”

The weathered man swiftly caught the cigarettes and glanced at the box cover, nodding slightly in satisfaction. “American brand, not bad.”

He looked back at Kyle, his expression softening a little. “So, what’s your business with me, following me like this?”

“You remind me of a friend I had in the past. Please tell me your name, and once I know more about you, I won’t follow you anymore,” Kyle said urgently.

“If you’re American, then it’s impossible that you’ve met me. I’ve never been to America,” The weathered man said, turning around and walking away. He waved his hand, saying, “I’m Logan Steele. Stay alive and we’ll meet again after the battle is over.”

His lone wolf-like figure quickly disappeared into the dark night of the war-torn streets, never to be seen again.

“Logan Steele, even the surname is different.”

Muttering to himself, Kyle stood in place, his eyes filled with a complex mix of emotions.

He understood now that the person in front of him wasn’t the familiar Wolverine he knew but rather a parallel version from the Marvel world.

He was similar in appearance, abilities, and experiences, but he is not the same person.
