The early years of James Logan, featuring his rivalry with his brother Victor Creed, his service in the special forces team Weapon X, and his experimentation into the metal-lined mutant Wolverine.
Magneto and Professor X were slated to have their own Origin movies, but these were cancelled when X-Men: First Class (2011) was brought to the table.
Young Victor Creed:
You're always sick.
Young James Logan: You were sick when you were my age.
(at around 6 mins) When Victor and Logan are fighting in the Vietnam War (during the opening credits sequence), Victor ends up getting in a fight with American soldiers many of whom are carrying M-16 rifles with a 20" barrel and full barrel guard as well as a period correct non adjustable butt-stock. However when we see Logan running to help Victor, he is carrying a modern AR-15 style carbine rifle with an adjustable butt-stock and smaller 18" barrel with a round barrel guard which wasn't around during the Vietnam War era.
SPOILER: There is a scene in the closing credits: William Stryker is arrested and taken into custody for the murder of General Munson).
German theatrical version was cut by the distributor before submission to the FSK to secure a "Not under 16" rating (the killing of the old couple is shortened, you don't see Wolverine igniting the gasoline). Ironically, the uncut version, submitted for the home video release, was rated "Not under 16" as well, thus rendering the cut theatrical version completely unnecessary.
