Alkali Lake was used as a base for Colonel Stryker and his allies. It was also used to create Weapon X and Weapon XI. Wolverine scaped the facility in order to avoid having his memory erased and some farmers brought him in. He was eventually tracked down. Stryker soon moved to Three Mile Island.
About 15 years later, Wolverine joins the X-Men and is working on discovering his past. At the end, Charles Xavier warns him that a facility on Alkali Lake, at the Canadian Rockies, might help him uncover the clues. He goes there afterwards on Scott Summers' motorcycle.
Kurt Wagner was mentally manipulated to leave his home. He was captured by Styrker and impriosned at the Alkali Lake compound where he was broken mentally and physically. Finally Styrker injected Kurt with a serum to control his mind.
During his search for the Facility, Logan was attacked by Sabertooth. After a brief fight Logan noticed that Sabertooth had a similar Dog Tag to his and the two decide to get a drink and discuss their forgotten past. Suddenly Styker's men storm the bar and Wolverine and Sabertooth fought them off but were eventually subdued. They woke up in a flying plane. Sabertooth sacrificed himself to help Wolverine get away by throwing him off, he was later killed by Stryker's men.
Once Wolverine arrives at Alkali Lake, all he finds is a abondoned facility and returns, disappointed.
