Biography

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

In 1845, Elizabeth was having an affair with her groundskeeper Thomas Logan. One night, Thomas came in and killed her husband John Howlett. James' rage triggered his mutation; retractable bone claws emerging in-between his knuckles. He then used his new claws to kill Thomas who, his dying breath, revealed himself as James' real father. A horrified Elizabeth then watches her son run away with his half-brother Victor.

Sometime later, Elizabeth either died of old age or unknown causes.
