Legal question regarding the sale of trademark action figures.

I am currently working on a Wolverine model. I thought about making molds and casts of the figure to sell online but thought I better hold off on moving forward with this before I get some legal advice.

My question is this: 

Can I sell my own artwork online if it is a "Wolverine" character or any other well know figure?

    Excellent advice Chris, thank you for your help and direction. It sounds like you have experienced the headaches of this type of situation before and I really appreciate your help! It's still early enough for me to change the direction of my character before I start molding, so I'll just have to make up my own designs. I'm completely cool with that but it's always good to know the laws before diving into the deep-end. Thanks again!
