The finally finished version of X-Men Origins: Wolverine opens today (with special effects and everything!), and no matter what it’s critical reception (hint: bad), it’s going to make eleventy billion dollars.

But in all the razzle dazzle of the silver screen, will we actually find out who Wolverine is? I doubt it. It’s been 35 years since he debuted looking like a goof fighting the Incredible Hulk, and parts of his story are still shrouded in mystery to this day. Certainly no two hour movie can get the job done. But take a look back at how far we’ve come in those 35 years, as represented by a collection of his best comic book covers.

    For the love of god, is it too much to ask that the pictures actually load on this site?
