This week’s installment focuses on the Legionnaire known as Timber Wolf!Timber Wolf is Brin Londo and first appeared in Adventure Comics 327 as Lone Wolf. He was basically Wolverine before Marvel did Wolverine. Here is a link to a fantastic origin page for Timber Wolf: http://majorspoilers.com/2007/06/10/hero-history-timber-wolf/
The costume from these pictures was designed by the legendary Dave Cockrum, who would later draw Wolverine.In fact, when Cockrum later took over drawing the X-men and helped create the Imperial Guard, he patterned Guardsman Fang after T. Wolf After his costume is destroyed, Wolverine kills Fang and takes his.
Timber Wolf has had multiple costume variationsHe was featured in the Legion animated seriesHe was in long-running relationship with Light Lass.
One of the best Timber Wolf tales takes place in Legion of Super-Heroes v.3 issue 13 and spotlights Brin as he attempts to honor the final wish of Karate Kid.A superior costume design, along with the depth of character that Paul Levitz wrote into the character, make Timber Wolf one of my favorites in the Legion.
