    Is Wolverine a midget?

    Was curious when I started playing UMVC3
    In real life, a guy who is 5'3 is very very short.

    But in comics, they draw Wolverine to be pretty proportional and he doesn't look at all like 5'3. (more like 5'9 ish in comics)

    So is Wolverine really 5'3 or has he grown taller?

    Also, do you think there is a reason they created Wolverine to be so short?

    Every comic book hero is usually like 6'2 or taller with some exceptions (Spiderman), so why was Logan created as a midget? Was it tied to his personality?

    Saying that someone who is 5'3 and calling them a midget is ignorant. A midget is an adult who is somewhere under 5 feet tall, so Wolverine isn't one.

    Since you call him a midget, I assume you're tall? I'm sure to you 5'3 is short if you're alot taller than that. Maybe 6'2 or 6'3?

    Given that Wolverine is well over a century old, it's safe to say that he's not going to grow any taller than he already is. Once a person reaches about 18 years of age, they've pretty much become as tall as they're ever going to get. Some comics depict him as being taller, but things like that are simply down to individual artistic interpretation.

    Well, I suspect this is merely a nod to the fact that Wolverine's personality is similar to that of an actual wolverine. Wolverines are small animals, and extremely vicious - they will attack animals much larger than themselves, and it's almost unheard of for them to back down from a threat. Sound like a certain Canadian mutant to you?

    I've played UMVC3. It was my latest game. I don't think he's a midget. He looks fine the way he is to me.

    Well, even in the movies, etc... He's always pictured as an average sized, well built guy. So he's definitely not a midget, just average sized, not too tall though

    Wolverine is Canadian? I didn't know that. I'm 6' tall and I don't think 5'3" or whatever is considered a midget. Besides, I think midgets prefer "little people." I think using the term "midget" is offensive now-a-days.

    4'10" or lower in height when fully grown is the classification for a little person and that height is still pushing the limit. Wolverine is not at all little person by any means however he is still horizontally challenged for sure

    He is kind of short in UMVC3 but isn't he about 6'' 2 in the films?

    He's also very hairy.

    Look at Wolverine in the 70s and 80s he's shorter than all other X-Men also look at the early 90s cartoon and old Logan is short again, but hey I'm a short arse too he's standing up for all us short men by kicking arse and plus he's way cooler than that tall boyscout Cyclops.

    He may be 5'3 in the lore, but in the movies and all movie related products he's 6'2. Just saying.

    The thing about Wolverine is the way he stands. He's not exactly tall, but he stands really, REALLY low to the ground [At least in games like MvC] - that makes him seem shorter than he actually is.

    He's actually about average height when he stands up straight.

    To be honest, though, it's like StewartBros. said - his height is pretty dependent on who's drawing him as well.

    Holy crap. I didn't know Hugh Jackman was 6' 2". He doesn't look that tall. Even looked it up on IMDB.
