How old is Wolverine? Wasn't he in the civil war or something? It seems like movies keep showing flashbacks of earlier and earlier events.
No one knows exactly for sure. In the comics story Origin, James Howlett is born sometime between 1886 and 1897. There is no record of Wolverine fighting in the American Civil War in the Earth-616 universe.
In the movies, however, James Howlett was born earlier within the same century. X-Men Origins: Wolverine shows James and Victor fighting in multiple wars across time, including the American Civil War.
Wolverine was born in year 1886. The latest X-Men is set in the year 2023. This means Wolverine is right now 137 years old.
There is a few comic lines that say 1832 also. So it's all about what you know by whether have or haven't read certain comments or have only watched the movies.
Based on the movies X-men origins begins in 1845 when wolverine is around the age of 10 so that would mean he would have been born close to 1835 so going from that year he would be around 181 in the year 2016
In the montage in the beginning it clearly shows him fighting red coats which means he at least fought in the american civil war if not the revolutionary war. So assuming he fought in the revolutionary war he's around 261 years old. If it was just the civil war he's about 175 or so.
