How many people has Wolverine killed in the movies, starting with X-Men (2000)?

    Huh? Why would this generate a "too long" list of answers? – DVK-on-Ahch-To Jan 21 '15 at 17:09
  • Relatively straightforward. The only real debate was how to factor in the retcon timeline. – Valorum Jan 21 '15 at 20:07
  • The total is 47 kills in movies starting with X-Men – Huangism Jan 21 '15 at 21:27
  • @Huangism - Maybe I'm overthinking it, but aren't you being too simplistic? What about the whole time-travel-retcon deely? – Valorum Jan 21 '15 at 21:32

    @Richard you are over thinking it, it's a simple question – Huangism Jan 21 '15 at 21:34

Wolverine's death-count is actually surprisingly low, at least until you get to 'The Wolverine'.


X-Men (2000) - Logan's kill-count is zero.

X-Men 2 (2003) - Logan's kill count is eleven.

X-Men 3 (2006) - Logan's kill count is twenty-two.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) - Logan's kill count is eleven.

X-Men: First Class (2011) - Logan's kill count is zero.

The Wolverine (2013) - Logan's kill count is fifty-four. (!)

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) - Logan's kill count is three.


  • Caveat #1

    • I'm basing the death count on "fell down and didn't get up" rather than "absolutely dead, no foolies".
  • Caveat #2

    • If you take into account every death seen on screen, the total number is 90 however due to the retcon timeline, it's unclear whether we can accept any of the events of X-Men 1, 2 or 3 (and most of Wolverine, excluding the opening sequence where he kills a WWII-era German soldier) as ever having happened, limiting the total to 12.

    Not all of those can be considered certified deaths. Some were probably just injured and maimed and could get medical help – user16696 Jan 21 '15 at 20:15
  • DoFP's timeline reset throws every death after 1973 into question - why are you only making The Last Stand's count optional? – phantom42 Jan 21 '15 at 20:43
  • Does X-Men Origins show him killing people in the intro montage? Those deaths would still be unchanged. – phantom42 Jan 21 '15 at 21:04

    @Huangism - I think it's clear that he meant "in the present X-Men universe series". I've edited the question accordingly. – Valorum Jan 21 '15 at 21:43
