Wolverine is known to get down and dirty a lot of times. The mutant has been seen getting busy multiple times with many women, resulting in having a lot of kids. One such case was there where he had to fight the Mongrels — Fire Knives, Gunhawk, Cannon Foot, Saw Fist and Shadowstalker. He kills them all, learning later that they were his children.


Trigon is an extra-dimensional demon, who had a lot of children, all killed by their mothers in order to stop Trigon’s evil prowess to increase and his rise to other dimensions. Raven survived though, and he used her in order to take control of Earth, because of which she created the Teen Titans.

He tortured his son psychologically and after being affected by the Green Goblin’s gas by other methods as well as leading him to be the next Green Goblin.


The so-called wise ruler of the mighty planet Asgard and the nine realms, Odin is a pretty bad father. It was his favoritism that created a rivalry between the two step-siblings, Loki and Thor. Not only that, the reason why he had brought Loki to Asgard, on the first place was very wrong.
