Wolverine's height

#1 Posted by Vultron (15 posts) - - Show Bio

How come he is listed as 5 foot 3 while he looks much taller than that in basiclly all the comics? I would assume that his black and yellow tiger outfit makes him a few inches taller due to the boots and the mask with 2 pointy ear things..

He's actually 5 ft 3 when both Wolfsbane and X-23 are 5ft 6.

It's one reason some people didn't want Hugh Jackman to play the role of Wolverine.  He's over 6 feet tall.  Personally though, I like the twist Jackman put on the character. 

Yeah..... I'm just psyched about the movie coming out, lol.

For a chick it is. OK maybe not tall but taller than average.

Can't go wrong with this look, lol.

basically wolverine should be drawn as the following description.....................Shorter than avg. male heroes (6 ft tall) and one inch shorter than some female heroes but same height as most avg female heroes.

It really doesnt matter that hes listed at 5 ft 3 in cause in drawn comics that stat doesnt really translate well. If the artists follow the description I listed he should look right.

O.K. Jubilee is listed as 5'5, and in every picture i've ever seen of the two of them together he's at least two inches above her. I can see him being 5'7 or5'8,but 5'3 that's a little drastic. Due to the way he's drawn in comics and jackman being over 6 feet Marvel should just(officially) give him at least four or five more inches.

He's short 'cause he's a wolverine.

Artists need to be consistent, but everyone draws him the way they want to.

Who drew that picture above me? Denys Cowan?

I just like Hugh Jackman...

In comics, I don't think a specific height matters...  height is relative to surroundings, and as long as it's consistent, why worry about numbers?

Yes you are, you're saying that his son, who is a fraction of his age witha fraction of his experience, is better than him.

That automatically means that Daken is better in every conceivable way? I think not.

I like that Wolverine isn't that tall. It shows size does not matter.
#34 Posted by Venom-Hulker_1 (1647 posts) - - Show Bio

that's actually tall for when he's from, In the 20's men where around 5'4'' so wolverine's Tall for the 1900's

Marvel has him listed as 5'3" but....... 
 
His original appearance in Incredible Hulk #181 says that he is 5'5".
#36 Edited by Joey809 (253 posts) - - Show Bio

5'2.-5'3

#37 Posted by Smart_Dork_Dude (2638 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't care how short he's supposed to be, a lot of the time I see him as 5'7

#38 Edited by God_Spawn (37901 posts) - - Show Bio

I kind of prefer him at that 5'7-5'8 or 9 ish height now anyways. Too accustomed to it now since no one really draws him to scale anymore anyway.

He's always shorter then all the other male characters and some of the bigger chicks. As an artist I can tell you trying to compare his height when he's not standing next to anyone is a fool's game.

5'-2" / 5'-3" is so damn short.

I'm glad they don't draw him that way...or used an actor that short.

I think I'm short as hell, standing 5'-6".
