Isn't Wolverine technically British, seeing as how he was born before Canada became an independent nation?

Canada was established as the country in 1867, so no he's Canadian. (I know it was still a British colony, however, politically, anyone born after confederation in Canada is considered a Canadian citizen.)

Wolverine was born as James Howlett in Alberta, Canada, in the late 1880s, to rich farm owners John and Elizabeth Howlett.

He actually is. He's one of if not thee oldest X-Man at the institute, his healing factor slows his aging by ridiculous amounts.

Well, by that logic, George Washington wouldn't have legally been able to have been president.

"No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President"

The "or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution" was added specifically for that reason.

The Constitution allowed people not born in America to become president provided that they were born before a certain date.

As well. Sir John A Macdonald (First Prime Minister of Canada) was actually British (Specifically Scottish)

Ah, of course, grandfather clause. Makes sense.

I'm not sure if Americans actually had the "You have to be born American to be president" law at the time. But in any case I suppose that's true. I just figured that Logan would be born to British Subjects and taught his original roots, so he would consider himself more British than anything (not to mention fighting for Britain during the World Wars)
