wolverine from the 90's vs wolverine from now

I have been a big wolverine fan since I was 4 and I noticed some change in not only character but in powers the wolverine from the 90's or as I like to call him Logan seemed a little faster stronger more agile more durable and much more of a savage berserker he seemed to use his animal like senses more as well.

where current wolverine or James Howlet seems more intelligent he seems to think more in his fights and he uses his enhanced strength speed and agility {if he still has them} seems to use his skills more often and seems to have finally tamed the beast becoming more passive.

am I reading to much into this or do you agree with my assessment either way let me know.

and if you agree go ahead and tell me who you like better and who you think will win.

Modern Wolverine has some better feats, his healing power has gotten ridiculous. So newer Wolverine wins.

In terms of who's a better character, well to me the worst thing they did with Logan was fully explain his roots. I'll take me some good ol' 80's Logan with the X-Men any day, back before Wolverine suffered from over exposure.

@greatcaesarsghost: I liked him back in the late 80's through the late 90's.

but what about logan having better speed and strength and enhanced senses feats back then real or is it just me.

Classic Wolverine is better in my opinion. He had amazing agility, senses and reflex feats. He sensed the pressure from Cyclops' Optic blast on the back of his head and dodges at the last moment. He deflects blades thrown by Longshot from behind, catches one and throws it back at him. He went toe to toe with Spider-Man and look at how he effortlessly beats Sabretooth.

Current Wolverine has a better healing factor, almost makes him immortal, but he's an overrated punching bag. He jobs to pretty much everyone nowadays... it's kinda sad :(

He's effortlessly beaten Sabretooth numerous times in the past year alone.

Current Wolverine. His damage soak has gotten even more ridiculous. He's brushed up on his skill quite a bit beating Iron Fist in a spar (sue me it was cool to watch), showing pressure points on alien beings, besting Daken twice, making Captain America look like a joke, one shotting the Thing with what I assumed to be a nerve strike via claws, combating the Gorgon in a gruesome fight. Logan's beefed up since the 90's.
