And Wolverine's like 'Yeah, okay, I'll do my best.'"

"The biggest bounty ever is on his head. So, he starts on this global adventure to figure out what's gong on."

In book #4 he founds out who is hunting him, which turns out to be Dr. Abraham Cornelius. The one who injected the adamantium in his body that turned his bones and claws to adamantium.

In issue #4, Wolverine finds out who is hunting him, a guy named Dr. Abraham Cornelius, who actually put the adamantium in his body that you see when he draws his impressive claws. Wolverine tried to put an stop to Dr. Cornelius from turning people into Weapon X. Wolverine punctured with his claws the adamantium tank and it covers him completely. He was able to walk and reach outside and without his healing power he was helpless. He died saving others.
