X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Elizabeth Howlett lived in Canada in 1845, with her husband John and her son James. She had an affair with John's groundskeeper, Thomas Logan, and from their relationship James was born.

When Logan became too violent, John wanted to fire him, but was killed in the attempt. James, who witnessed his father's murder, was shocked and his rage activated his latent mutation, allowing him to kill Thomas. When Victor, Logan's son, and James escape, Elizabeth remained alone with the corpse of the man she loved (Thomas), screaming in her mansion.

Character traits

Elizabeth Howlett was a horrible mother, and an unfaithful wife. Despite having a loving and good caring husband, she cheats on him with Thomas Logan, the groundskeeper, and who John believes to be his own son, James, is in reality Logan's son.
