Wolfram is a tall man with very dark, red hair. His face has dark patches of skin, which cover his mouth, nose, eyes, and part of his forehead. He also has a scar on his left cheek. He wears a very large white coat, with light gray cuffs and lining, along with gray combat boots, baggy sweatpants, and a combat vest. He also wears dark brown gloves.
Wolfram is a cunning person, being able to manipulate people into doing what he wants. It's also been shown that he shows little emotion for close to anything, and only strives to overturn the hero society.
Not much is known about Wolfram's background prior to the events of The Two Heroes.
Wolfram and his men posed as actors who hired by David and Sam to aid them in orchestrating the villain attack on I-Island in order to steal back their greatest invention - a headset that maximizes the power of its user's quirk. Whereas David, who conflicted with the plan, simply wanted to retake the headset so All Might can maintain his status as a hero and keeping the world save with it (as unknown to him, the hero has passed his quirk to his apprentice Izuku Midoriya and only have fewer ember of his former powers), Sam intended to sell the invention to the villains so he can achieve fame and fortune both he and David denied of. Unknown to either of them however, Wolfram himself is an actual villain who genuinely sought to kidnap David and forced him to mass-produce the said invention for his own purposes.
Whem Wolfram and his men making preparations for the extortion, he received a contact from All For One, who intrigued by his scheme as it also involved his nemesis All Might. Since they have a common enemy, the Symbol of Peace, Wolfram agreed to have One for All endowed him a quirk which enable him to amplify his muscles, and thus counteracted his weakness at close range when manipulating metal.
He and his men soon made their presence known to inhabitants of I-Island after taking over the island's security system and restraining the guards stationed there. Appearing before All Might's reception, Wolfram assessed everyone their situation and proceeded to have his men who controlling the security system to restrain the heroes and deter them from resisting. He also coerced David to aid them in opening the island's vault which located at the 200th floor of I-Island's main building, the building the party is hosted at. However, neither he nor his men accounted that Izuku and his friends, Melissa, Tenya, Shoto, Momo, Ochako, Kyoka, Minoru, and Denki, who also invited to the island, are still free due to running late for the party.
After the students reach the 80th floor, Wolfram and his team become aware of their plan and attempt to apprehend them as result of Minoru unintentionally triggered the security system. Despite of them managed to have Izuku's friends occupied and/or restrained by swarms of I-Island Security Bots with 3 of his men failed as resukt of Katsuki and Eijiro, Izuku and Melissa managed to reach the 200th floor in time to see David and Sam retrieving their confiscated invention and revealed their part in the incident they are in.
After David confessed to both Deku and Melissa in Wolfram's schemes, Sam double-crossed David by revealing his knowledge that Wolfram and his team are villains all along and attempted to join them for fame and glory they have denied just as Wolfram himself enter the scene. However, Wolfram shoots Sam after getting the suitcase, and David jumps in the way of another bullet in order to save Sam's life. Before Wolfram can kill Melissa, Midoriya breaks free in order to fight him. Wolfram uses his Quirk to control metal to hold off Midoriya and escapes to the rooftop with the defenseless David in his clutches. He vows to further sink David lower to the path of villainy they are in before putting him out of his misery. Despite his disadvantages over the villains' quirk, Izuku remained to press on, but failed after Wolfram knocked him off the chopper he and his remaining men used to escape the I-Island, unable to save the rest since Melissa managed to restore the security systems. Fortunately, just as all hope seemed lost, All Might soon appears and snatched David out of the chopper, saving his old friend's life and crashed the chopper into pieces, seemingly killed everyone onboard.
Metal Manipulation (金属操作 Kinzoku Sōsa?): Wolfram's Quirk allows him to manipulate metallic material by making contact with an iron surface. It can be used for offensive and defensive purposes by creating flexible iron pillars to crush his targets and create tall, sturdy walls to defend himself and trap his opponents in.
Muscle Augmentation (筋肉増強 Kin'niku Zōkyō?): This Quirk was given to him by All For One, and allows Wolfram to increase his muscle mass and physical strength, as well as alter his appearance, evidenced by his hair protruding, similar to All Might. This Quirk is very similar to One For All, but not as powerful.
- Handgun: Wolfram carries a loaded handgun with him.
- ”Wolfram” is the German name for Tungsten, which is a reference to his metal-based Quirk.
- The nature of Wolfram's Metal Manipulation Quirk heavily resembles the mutant Magneto from the X-Men comics and movies.
