In 1845 in Canada, young James Howlett sees his father being killed by gardener Thomas Logan. A traumatic mood provoked a sudden spike: claws protruded from the boy's hand, and he killed Logan. Before he died, Logan told James that he was the boy's biological father. James flees with mistreated son of Logan (James's half-brother) - Victor Creed. Both survived more than a century, from the American Civil War to both World Wars. During the Vietnam War, Victor kills his superiors when the commander stops him from carrying out a rape. James defended his brother and the two were executed. But they survived. Major William Stryker has contacted them and offered to join the X Squad, a group of mutants, including marksman Agent Zero, mercenary Wade Wilson, who has the ability to teleport John. Wraith, champion Fred Dukes and power controller Chris Bradley. The two join the team, but the team's suspicious activities cause James to leave.
Six years later, James (then named Logan) went to live in Canada with his girlfriend, Kayla Silverfox. Colonel Stryker finds Logan and warns him that someone is looking to kill the members of the squad. Soon after, Victor killed Kayla and defeated Logan. Stryker offers a way to help Logan defeat Victor. Logan underwent surgery to fortify his skeleton with adamantium, a virtually indestructible metal. Before the surgery, Logan wanted a new card with the name "Wolverine". Stryker orders to erase Wolverine's memories, but Wolverine overhears and runs away. His former teammate Zero was chasing after. Wolverine came to hide in the barn of an old couple, who let him stay the night. But Zero attacked, killing the couple. Wolverine then killed Zero.
Wolverine found Wraith and Dukes, asking them about Stryker's new lab. They said that Stryker was doing many experiments on mutants. A mutant, Remy LeBeau ("Gambit") has escaped, who knows the location of the lab. Wraith and Wolverine went to find Gambit to inquire about the location of the lab, but Gambit suspects that Wolverine was sent to take him back to the lab and attacks Wolverine. Victor kills Wraith and takes a blood sample from him. With his new powers, Wolverine attacked Victor and nearly killed him. Gambit hinders the fight, helping Victor escape. After witnessing Wolverine's honesty, Gambit took him to Stryker's lab on "Three Mile Island". There Wolverine discovered that Silverfox was still alive and was cooperating with Stryker in exchange for the safety of his brother held hostage.
Even so, she still sincerely loves Wolverine. Feeling pain and betrayed, Wolverine decided to leave. Meanwhile, Stryker refused to give Victor adamantium as promised before and said that Victor will not be able to overcome the process of reinforcing the adamantium skeleton. Enraged, Victor attempted to kill Kayla, but Logan heard a cry for help and took action to stop Victor. Logan nearly kills Victor but then ignores Victor, turning to help Kayla free the imprisoned mutants. Stryker activates Weapon XI, formerly Wade Wilson, but now transforms into a "mutant assassin" with many of the other mutant's powers, and is called "The Deadpool" by Stryker. Logan kept Weapon XI to let the others escape. The group then met Professor Charles Xavier, who wanted to take them to Villa X, his school. Severely injured, Kayla decided to stay.
Logan pulls Weapon XI to the top of one of the cooling towers. He almost gets killed, but is saved by Victor in time. The two worked together like in the old days and destroyed Deadpool. Logan cuts off Weapon XI's head and kicks him down from the tower, but one of Weapon XI's powers causes the tower to collapse. Victor jumped out of the tower after telling Logan that the two of you as brothers cannot be stopped. When one of the broken towers fell on Logan, Gambit appeared and saved him. The two split up to find other people. Logan found Kayla, he took her away when Stryker attacked. Stryker shot two Adamantium bullets straight at Logan, making him lose consciousness. Kayla used all of her last strength to force Stryer to walk forever, until her feet were bloody. Gambit saw the kids following Professor X, he went back to Logan. Logan woke up, not remembering who he was or anything else including Kayla. When Gambit wanted to take him away from the place, Logan said he would find his own path.
Days later, an army group found William Stryker and arrested him on suspicion of involvement in General Munson's death.
