The Professor offers Wolverine a spot in the X-Men, a mutant team that has Storm, Cyclops, Phoenix and him. Wolverine accepts. He also developed a crush on Phoenix, despite Cyclops being her boyfriend. Rogue is eventually captured and Wolverine is the first one to want to rescue her from the clutches of Magneto and his team, the Brotherhood, which he eventually succeeds, but with the price of nearly getting killed himself.

Summary: The X-Men, Magneto and Mystique (the two surviving Brotherhood members) now have a mutual enemy with mutant-hating army operative William Stryker, as he tries to kill every mutant in the world.
The X-Men team up with Magneto and the Brotherhood to stop an army general from killing mutants. Wolverine returns to the X-Mansion after finding nothing about his past, just as William Stryker, an army general and a mutant hater, puts his plan in motion. He steals blueprints of Cerebro, Professor Xavier's special machine that tracks people down, then he makes an exact copy. The only difference is that it kills mutants around the world, not track them. Meanwhile, the X-Men find a mutant called Nightcrawler and he joins the X-Men. Then the X-Men reluctantly team up with Magneto and the Brotherhood to stop Stryker's evil plot. They find Stryker's base and Wolverine kills Lady Deathstrike, Stryker's right-hand woman (ironically, a mutant) in a fight and saving all the mutants in the world. They also just manage to escape the base. However, the X-Men mourn the loss of Phoenix, who sacrificed herself to save the X-Men from a flood during the escape from Stryker's base. However, just before the Credits, it shows the place where Phoenix sacrificed herself, which is now a lake, and shows a whirlpool, indicating that Phoenix is still alive.

Summary: Jean Grey comes back from the dead, and the government issues a cure for the mutant gene. The X-Men try to stop Magneto and the Brotherhood from killing Leech, the origins of the cure.
Cyclops goes to the place where Phoenix died and finds out that she lived. It then goes into detail about how she survived and that her split-personality, Dark Phoenix has returned. Then (Dark) Phoenix kills Cyclops and Professor Xavier accidentally, then joins Magneto and the Brotherhood, after being convinced that they will help her control her powers. At the same time the President is developing a cure for the mutant gene. However, Magneto and the Brotherhood (including [Dark] Phoenix now), thinking that killing the President will stop the cure from being given out, attacks the facility where it is being made; but Wolverine and Storm (Phoenix, Professor Xavier, Nightcrawler [he quit the team] and Cyclops are gone) goes to stop them, getting mutants Colossus, Iceman, Beast and Shadowcat to join the New X-Men. Eventually, the New X-Men manage to defeat the Brotherhood and stop them from killing the President and his army. During all this, Wolverine has to kill (Dark) Phoenix, which ends the fighting. Magneto is then stabbed with a dart with "the cure" by Beast and loses his powers. However, just before the Credits, he is shown making a metal chess piece vibrate secretly.

After Wolverine quits a mutant team called Team X (the leader of the group was Stryker, from X2), he falls in love with Silverfox, only to find that 6 years later she is killed by Sabretooth, his step-brother. He finds Sabretooth but they get into a fight, injuring Wolverine badly. Stryker later comes when Wolverine is conscious and gives Wolverine a dog tag which is shown in the other X-Men movies. He also inserts a special metal substance called Adamantium into Wolverine's body. Wolverine escapes, meets old friend Wraith and acquaintance the Blob, and finds a mutant called Gambit, who takes him to an island where Stryker and Sabretooth are hiding. Wolverine finds Stryker and Sabretooth, finding out that his wife is not actually dead. She and Sabretooth were actually spies and agents for Stryker. Sabretooth had killed members of Team X, just before he "killed" Wolverine's wife. It had all been an act. Wolverine's wife reveals herself, then admits she's a mutant, like him. She has the power of persuasion as long as she's touching them. Angry, Wolverine knocks Sabretooth out, then runs into a mutant called Weapon XI, aka Deadpool. They get into a fight, with the help of the recovered Sabretooth (who decided to turn against Stryker), then chops his head off. Then afterwards, Wolverine gets shot by Stryker in the brain, wiping out his memory.
