Raven Software has put a lot of effort into making X-Men Origins: Wolverine the most authentic portrayal of the clawed Canadian ever presented in a videogame, down to his super human healing factor. Abuse heaped upon the X-Man tears through four layers distinct and detailed layers: clothes, skin, muscles and bone. And while you’ll notice Wolvie can regenerate damaged or destroyed areas of his cellular structure, just like in the comics, you might also notice the one thing he doesn’t have to worry about healing, his designer jeans.
“As far as the pants go, if you notice his shirt totally gets all ripped up. Well, we used to have it where it was just this [crotch area] — we call it a ‘no-zone’ [area that doesn’t get torn away]. But then seriously, within five minutes, Wolverine’s just walking around in daisy dukes and it just looked weird. So we’re like, you know what dude, let’s just move the no-zone down to here [the calf area] and within five minutes, it looked like he had on clam diggers or capri pants,” said producer Jeff Poffenbarger when asked about the impeccably impervious denim by MTV Multiplyer. “So we made it so that the pants actually don’t get ripped away because it looked too strange. We actually went through a ton of iterations of that. It was pretty funny.”
