Tracing the history of the werewolf myth across the globe, Sabine showed that most cultures had at least some form of the myth. While most had the stereotypical transformation in a wolf, a good number simply had the person going into a "beserker" rage; which is probably where creators of Wolverine got the idea.

After the mythical accounts came the historical ones. There were some seriously sick dudes. From bathing in maids' blood to dismembering children because it was a thrill, it was a disturbing read. Though fitting for Halloween!
