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..

I'm just psyched about the movie coming out, lol."Yeah I didn't want Hugh cause of the height. But he needs to put on a F$%$ing mask in this movie!
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.

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?
@John Valentine: I'm not taking anything away from wolverine but he is his fathers son and wolverine's a little old ... [more]
I think the reason wolverine is so short is because he was born around the 1800s,right? Like...1886 or something. Well,people back then were usually shorter than people today. And it might also be that since he is a wolverine...I'm not so sure.
Actually, yeah, people back then were shorter than most people nowadays. It was mostly because they didn't get the nutrients they needed.
Also, I think he's drawn short because he's usually mad, so it gives him a Napoleon Complex (which we know isn't true, but it's funny :P)
