This lighter is owned and used by Logan.
During his fight with Sabretooth at the service station, Wolverine slashes a gas pump, dousing Sabretooth in gasoline. He extracts his lighter from his coat pocket and threatens to set Sabretooth aflame. Before he can act, Sabretooth also douses Wolverine with gasoline. However, Wolverine gambles that of the two, he would survive if set aflame. After igniting the gasoline, he proves to be correct, as Sabretooth writhes in pain. Wolverine then hurdles himself and Sabretooth into a nearby snow bank.
