He fought in WW2, and my knowledge in that subject is more than rusty, but the RCAF were in Asia during WW2.Their 6th division were trained to take part in 'operation downfall' which was the codename for the allied plan to invade Japan at that time (someone correct me if i'm wrong on this btw)
Anyway..yeah..Logan was often portrayed as someone who fought in WW2.As a matter of fact, one of my fav Wolverine story EVER is from issue 34. If they ever decide to show Logan fighting in the WW2 again, they should chose that scene where he charged an SS batallion with nothing but a knife!
Thanks! I guessed that in terms of the comic books, WWII did play a more important role... I just thought that, judging by but the films, it came off as random, or rather contextless (for those not familiar with the comic books of course).
