Marvel has given Wolverine many opportunities to shine as a hero, but there are plenty of moments of Wolverine being a d*ck. He may be the best there is at what he does, but sometimes what he does best is act like a jerk. He's betrayed friends, eliminated family members, and has inflicted unforgivable cruelties. In his tenure as a mutant superhero, he's also done some truly weird stuff, even if it isn't exactly d*ckish.
Take a look at this list of the some of the worst things Wolverine has done and vote up the ones that really aren't heroic at all.

Sleeps with Mary Jane in Peter Parker's Body
In Ultimate Spider-Man #66 & 67, Wolverine and Spider-Man have their minds switched into each others' bodies (classic comics hijinks). While Logan fakes his way through the everyday life of the 15-year-old Peter Parker, Mary Jane Watson gives "Peter" a little affection. When the two heroes get their minds back into their own forms, Peter finds out that Wolvie had sex with his girlfriend while cruising in Peter's body.
Technically it's two teens hooking up, but seeing as Wolverine's mind is that of an adult and Mary Jane, an underage girl, is unaware that she's not actually with her boyfriend, it's really skeevy and gross. In fact, it's a lot like that weird sexual assault in Revenge of the Nerds.Was this messed up?

Possibly Sleeps with an Underaged Squirrel Girl
In New Avengers #7, it is hinted that the spunky Squirrel Girl and Logan had some form of relationship in the past that ended awkwardly. Then in Wolverine #8, Emma Frost ventures into Logan's mind and sees his sexual fantasies, which include a buxom Squirrel Girl.
Keep in mind that, in continuity, Squirrel Girl is still a teenager at this point, not the freshman college student she eventually becomes in the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl series. So this leaves comic fans to wonder whether or not an Avenger committed statutory rape. Whether she is of age or not, it's still deeply uncool, especially since Logan himself has been around for well over a century.Was this messed up?

Constantly Creeps on Jean GreyVideo: YouTube
Throughout all of the main universe X-Men comics, films, and television series, Logan crushes on Jean Grey. Hard. So hard that he constantly undermines Jean's relationship with Cyclops, even after the two are married. He even throws vicious tantrums about it.
Move on, man. The lady made her choice. It's one thing to pursue her when she's available, but the constant come-ons are desperate and creepy. Jean is her own woman and isn't a prize to be won.Was this messed up?

Regularly Uses "Take Out the Kid" as a Go-To Solution
Wolverine resorts to killing or trying to kill a child preemptively surprisingly often, even if there are other options available and the kid hasn't done anything wrong yet:
- In Uncanny X-Force #5, he argues for the murder of the child clone of Apocalypse.
- In Avengers vs. X-Men #2, he tries to slay the teen Hope Summers out of fear of her Phoenix powers.
- In All-New X-Men #5, he wants to eliminate the young teen Cyclops from the past in order to prevent a future he might cause.
- In Ultimate X-Men #41, he terminates a teenager who has newly manifested mutant powers that accidentally killed a group of people.
There are many other similar instances of this. Logan thinks killing potentially dangerous kids is the right thing to do, but often doesn't bother to look for other options.Was this messed up?
