List Rules Girlfriends and love interests of Wolverine found in Marvel Comics.

Wolverine has lived a very long life, which would really help explain why he's had so many relationships in the past century or so. And with joining the X-Men (which, ironically, is filled with women), you're bound to spark a relationship with someone. Here, we take a look back at his laundry list of Wolverine’s girlfriends, some have even become his wife.

One of Wolverine’s most notable relationships is with fellow X-Man, Jean Grey. Wolverine and Jean Grey had a flirty relationship ever since Wolverine teamed-up with the X-Men, which makes Jean's boyfriend/husband super jealous (and is probably why Wolverine and Cyclops don't get along that well). He's also been forced to slay her more than once, as Jean Grey has a habit of resurrecting as an all-powerful cosmic being. Another X-Men member Wolverine knocked boots with his Storm. Wolverine and Storm also had a flirty relationship, but after Storm got divorced from Black Panther, they took their relationship to the next level. While no one knows exactly how old Wolverine is, these relationships span his entire life and alternate universes.

Believe us, though, the train doesn't stop with them. Wolverine's been engaged, married, had a homosexual relationship, and even had kids with a few lucky ladies. His children have even become major characters in recent years. Sad to say, though, most of Wolverine’s girls end up dead... so maybe they really shouldn't be described as "lucky."

Storm and Wolverine have always had a flirty relationship. After Storm and Black Panther's divorce, Storm sparked a romantic, yet undefined, relationship with Wolverine, and they run the Jean Grey School together. These two also have relationships that span into other alternate realities.

In the Ultimate universe, they share a brief romantic relationship, but Wolverine put a stop to it due to their age difference. In Earth-9811, they are married with a daughter named Kendall.

When Wolverine first joined the X-Men, Jean had an immediate attraction to him, but it almost didn't go anywhere due to Jean's relationship with Cyclops. As time went on, the flirtation build up was at its max, and they shared a kiss here and there.

Some consider Jean to be the love of Wolverine's life... when she's alive that is. They also have a complicated romantic relationship in the Age of Apocalypse alternate universe.

Wolverine met Mariko in Japan. They quickly fell for one another and got engaged. Mariko shockingly broke it off during the ceremony saying, "You are not worthy." He later learned that the scumbag Mastermind was behind it all.

Wolverine and Mariko resumed their romantic relationship, but later, Mariko ingested toxins. Instead of perishing slowly, she asked Wolverine to speed up the process. Wolverine did so.
