Wolverine's Madripoor Adventures

The long-lived mutant known as Logan has a far-reaching and complicated history with the island of Madripoor. Whether under the vigilante alias “Patch,” or acting as the X-Man Wolverine, Logan has spread his influence, and defended the shores, of this laissez-faire locale.
