    Marvel Handbooks have Wolverine listed as having a son named Erista. I have been researching this child of Wolverine's and I found that the child was born in Wolverine: the jungle adventure and that the child's sex was revealed in Uncanny X-Men #353, but the name Erista has still not been found. Who knows where it can be found???

    since the jungle adventure took place sometime in the 1970s this means that the child could be in its 30's, this could lead to new stories. do you hear me marvel writers:D

    Well, there is no mention of any offspring of any gender in the first film, which is what this particular forum is dedicated to.

    Wolverine had a kid with some chick in the Savage Land and is a totally deadbeat dad.

    You are not a deadbeat if you dont know that you have a kid.

    Where in the comics can I find the name Erista, that was the Question? and I made a new thread because someone told me that the X-Men area is for the movies so I made a new thread in the Marvel comic book section, so again:

    Actually this is not true since the child was born in the 70's he is still in his teens or early twenties considering the way marvel characters age.

    no, because the mystery is still not solved, the link did have this to say:
    "A few years back, a small firestorm erupted on the internet and continued to brew when some sources began to refer to Wolverine having a son named Erista. Well, this is the root of it. While I'm not sure who came up with the name Erista (or why), it was officially made canon in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Wolverine 2004."

    which means that they dont know where the name came from either, which is pretty sad that somebody made up a name in the Marvel Handbook, so who knows what else is wrong in those things. its a sad day then someone makes a mistake in a marvel handbook and that makes it canon:confused:

    ok, but what i'm saying is the child is old enough to meet his father, this could lead to some interesting stories.

    ok but check the handbook aaaand then check the 2003 handbook (if there was one. i barely know of these things existance) and then if they are different then it obviously happened in that year. i'd start with checking all x-men/wolverine books from 2003-2004 and then maybe e-mail the writer of the jungle adventure?

    it was probably in his design notes, never made it to the book and then he simply answered a net question. ysee it seems pretty clear to me it was first released on the net.

    in fact... i swear someone said wolvie having a son was mentioned years after the jungle adventure, but wasnt named. check out that book's writer.

    ur certainly a hard man to please. these things happen quite a lot. take, for example, bendis' Powers arcs. theyre rarely given a name in the books themselves but always appear on the tpbs. however these arcs are referred to as such on the net while theyre out. basically what im saying is that sometimes details just arent in the books but press/net releases and this is seeming likely (if not in the book where he is mentioned again years later). in that case... does it matter???
