'Old Man' Howlett is the father of John Howlett, Sr. and the grandfather of James Howlett (aka Wolverine). Self-made millionaire made a fortune in copper-ore.
The man known as "Old Man Howlett" is the father of John Howlett, and the grandfather of James Howlett, better known as Wolverine. He helped gather the fortune his son now inherited. Old man Howlett wanted to live out his last years in peace, living in the mansion with his son and grandson. Old Man Howlett was already a senior when young James Howlett was still a young boy. His grandfather had a strong no nonscence mentality and often classed with James' father.
*** THE MURDERS ***
After the massacre that left old man Howlett's son John murdered, and his daughter by law (James' mother) dead, he helped James and long time friend Rose fleeing the mansion, giving them money to leave. Old man Howlett thought James to be somehow, but unwillingly, part of the massacre. Years later, the Old Man lay on his deathbed and had a change of sight. He wanted to find his grandson back, in order to keep the family name going. He had Dog (son of Thomas Logan, the person who started the massacre in the mansion many years ago) track James and Rose down to bring them home. This was however misinterpreted-ed by Dog, who sought to find and bring the pair back by whatever means. How and when Old Man Howlett died was never told, although it is fairly certain he never again saw his grandson, James Howlett, aka Wolverine.
Old Man Howlett was created by Paul Jenkins, Joe Quasada and Andy Kubert and first appeared in Origin issue 1 (2001).
