Original Origin?

Has anyone heard of the original origin of Wolverine? I have. It's like the same thing as White Tiger but with a Wolverine. I saw it on Wiki and wonder if it was right.

Co-creator Len Wein originally intended for Logan to be a mutated wolverine cub, evolved to humanoid form by the High Evolutionary.[12] In X-Men #98, a biological analysis of Wolverine suggests that he is not a full-fledged mutant, and in X-Men #103, Wolverine says he doesn't believe in leprechauns, to which the leprechaun replies, "Maybe leprechauns don't believe in talkin' wolverines, either."[13] In a reprint of Hulk #180-181, titled Incredible Hulk and Wolverine, an interview with Cockrum supports the claim Wolverine was intended to be a mutated wolverine. Cockrum said he considered having the High Evolutionary play a vital role in making Wolverine a human. He wanted Wolverine to be the age of a young adult, with superhuman strength and agility similar to Spider-Man. This changed when Cockrum saw John Romita Sr. draw a mask-less Wolverine as a hairy 40-year-old. Creator Len Wein originally intended the claws to be retractable and part of Wolverine's gloves, and both gloves and claws would be made of adamantium. This idea was later nixed by Claremont because he believed anyone could then become Wolverine by wearing the gloves. The claws are first revealed to be part of Wolverine's anatomy in X-Men #98. Shortly after this, it was revealed[citation needed] that Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew) was a spider evolved to human form by the High Evolutionary. Publisher Stan Lee was disgusted with the interpretation of the character and insisted her origin be changed.[citation needed] Lee's strong reaction and subsequent demand for a retcon convinced Wein, Cockrum, and Claremont they could never get away with introducing Logan as a mutated wolverine.[

If you would hate that story just because you do not believe in evolution, then you must really hate mutants as a concept anyway.

I think mutant powers being evolution is bunk anyways.

You can't tell me that blue skin or shooting lasers out of your eyes is something that could be evolved in one generation.
