And they didn't! But still, we're left with a mountain of comics that directly state the Weapon X Project is responsible for his Amnesia.(and to a lesser extent, his healing factor) Now we have Xavier wiping some recent memories, and apparently he didn't help much in Wolverine recovering his memories going forward.

Well, the interview at CBR with the Weapon X: First Class writer - http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page ... e&id=18946 - besides assuring readers that

Marc Sumerak: As with all the other First Class books, “Weapon X: First Class” was designed to fit seamlessly within the mainstream Marvel Universe that we all know and love. My editor extraordinaire, Mark Paniccia, couldn’t have said it better when he told me that these stories “dance between the raindrops of continuity.” That is to say that, while a number of the events in this series have never actually appeared on-panel before now, they are designed to fit between previously established tales without contradicting anything that has come before.

3) As this is a Marvel Adventures title, have you felt the need to sanitize much considering what happens to Wolverine as Weapon X?

I think it’s important to note that, while “Weapon X: First Class” is an “all ages” title, that designation doesn’t automatically make it part of the Marvel Adventures line. The First Class books all take place in the mainstream Marvel Universe and build upon the rich history of the X-Men that has been established over the years.

The Marvel Adventures books are set in their own independent corner of the Marvel multiverse, allowing them to exist completely free of the shackles of continuity. That makes these two lines very different beasts. But the one common thread that they do share is the fact that they are meant to be friendly to readers of all age levels...

Because in those series, we learn that Professor X has done a certain amount of “mind-wiping” on Wolverine. So wouldn’t that mean that the walls in Logan’s mind were partially built by the Professor?

You’re absolutely right, Andre. There’s a strong chance that a number of the defense mechanisms and psychic blocks in Logan’s mind were actually put there by Xavier himself. But don’t forget that many of those blocks were in place long before the Professor and Logan ever met. Those ones were erected by Weapon X, Department H and even Logan himself. Luckily for Xavier, Wolverine isn’t too concerned about how the blocks were put there – he’s more interested in the memories dwelling behind those walls.

With Xavier playing “tour guide” in this series, it gives him a better chance to steer Logan away from any info that he might not want his pupil to discover – such as some of the secrets currently being explored in “Original Sins.” It also allows Xavier to make sure that the mental barriers Wolverine breaks through on their journey won’t potentially put either of them in grave danger. Of course, that’s easier said than done. Xavier knows all too well that Wolvie’s mind is a metaphorical minefield...and there are definitely going to be a few unexpected explosions before all is said and done!
