Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Laura Kinney, a.k.a. X-23, is a character owned by Marvel Comics, and created by Craig Kyle and his writing partner Christopher Yost. The character first appeared in two episodes of X-Men: Evolution in 2003 as an alternative to giving Logan more focus or using other Marvel heroes, X-23 quickly became an Ensemble Dark Horse and was written into the comics the following year. She made her comics debut with NYX #3 (February, 2004), featuring a similar background to her Evolution counterpart except even Darker and Edgier.X-23 was created by the Weapon X offshoot known as the Facility,note HYDRA in Evolution using a damaged sample of Wolverine's DNA. The damage was greatest on the Y chromosome, so after several attempts at a direct clone Dr. Deborah Risman in Evolution, and the similar Dr. Sarah Kinney in the comics, eventually had the brilliant idea to create a female copy instead by duplicating the X chromosome. At last the 23rd attempt to create the female clone of Weapon X was successful, thus X-23. For years, she was thought to be a clone of Logan, but it was eventually revealed Sarah used some of her own DNA to complete the damaged sample, making X-23 Logan's biological daughter.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })She grew up being trained to be an assassin, so that the Facility could sell her talents to the highest bidder. X-23 endured severe emotional and physical abuse in order to remove such weaknesses as emotion and self worth. Her creator, the one scientist who treated her like a child, tried to free her, but X-23 had been conditioned with a special "trigger scent" that would forcefully throw her into a Berserker Rage, forcing X to kill her. In her dying words, Dr. Kinney named her Laura.note She was never given a name onscreen other than X-23 in EvolutionAfter tracking down Logan she was invited to join the X-Men, and has been a mainstay in the X-Men books ever since. X-23 became a Breakout Character after her introduction, and is perhaps the most successful and popular X-Man introduced during the 2000s.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })She made her live-action debut in Logan, the third Wolverine-focused movie in the X-Men film series, portrayed by Dafne Keen. For tropes specific to her movie incarnation, see this page.

Age Lift: Her original depiction in X-Men: Evolution was as a little girl. However, when she became a Canon Immigrant to the comics, she was reimagined as a teenager, which also carried other to other versions like Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Marvel Heroes — which caught fans by surprise when Logan presented a Truer to the Text version.

The Call Knows Where You Live: Laura thought she could safely go to ground with her family. Too bad the Facility had an agent planted with them even before she turned up at their door for just such an eventuality. In the end, the only way she could protect them was to send them into hiding and go on the run again, leading to nearly two years of misery as a homeless prostitute.

Little Miss Badass: In X-Men: Evolution, Laura defeated all of the X-Men, despite being half the age of most, if not all, of them. Although this version did have her skeleton laced in adamantium and the element of surprise (and even the ones who knew they were being attacked had no idea who they were up against and had no way to fight back), it's not likely Wolverine himself could do this.

comment
Pay Evil unto Evil: Practically Laura's entire life has revolved around this. While she did kill innocents under the Facility, they also hired her out to kill some pretty bad people, as well. And of course when Sarah turns her loose on the Facility itself it becomes this. It's also generally her role on a team; much like Logan, she's the one willing to kill if she has to. Up to Eleven when she's on X-Force, an entire team built on this principle.

 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_1d9a2764
comment
Reality Ensues: X-23 is pretty much what you'd actually get out of a raised-from-birth Living Weapon Tyke Bomb who endure years of Training from Hell. She was virtually destroyed emotionally by the years of abuse and torture she received at the Facility, leaving her a PTSD-ridden wreck prone to falling into Heroic BSODs at the drop of a hat. Because she was deprived of the affection, emotional support, and socialization a child requires for normal development she's often lost in social interactions, easily confused by her emotions, and frequently experiences bouts of severe and possibly suicidal depression. At least one analysis of her character suggests she suffers from Borderline Personality Disorder, and a significant portion of her development in the books has been spent on repairing the damage that was done to her.

Self-Harm
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_22a59b45
comment
Self-Harm: She habitually cuts herself on the wrists and forearms with her claws, and is first shown to engage in this behavior as a reaction to being forced to kill her sensei as a test of the trigger scent. Laura can fall under all of the reasons for cutting noted on the trope page and one issue of her solo series suggests she may even be inflicting fatal injuries on herself: an employee at a hotel where she was staying with Gambit reported to his manager that it appeared as if someone attempted to commit suicide in a bathroom she just left. Her Healing Factor prevents her from dying from her wounds, however, and completely heals the resulting scars. As with many tropes relating to her Dark and Troubled Past this has faded as her Characterization Marches On.

Retail Therapy: Jubilee attempts this on Laura in Paris, taking her shopping at very high-end fashion boutiques in hopes of getting her to lighten up. It largely fails, as Laura is a bit bemused by the experience, and isn't particularly fond of the bright, fashionable dresses Jubes picks out for her.

Practically Different Generations: Laura is as much as fifty years younger than her brother, Daken, who was born in the late/mid-1940s. She's also this to her younger sister Gabby (who takes it further by being Younger than She Looks, since Gabby was rapid-aged while Laura grew up normally).

comment
Shoot the Dog: "The Killing Dream" reveals she was forced to do this literally by the Facility as part of her Break the Cutie Training from Hell. When they decided Laura still had too much empathy for others, she was given a puppy with orders to kill it within a set amount of time and was then left alone to carry it out. She played with it instead, and when her handlers returned to find the puppy still alive threatened to torture it as punishment for Laura failing to follow orders, before relenting and offering her "another chance."

Oppose What You Suffered
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_29e25672
comment
Oppose What You Suffered: This is almost a Hat: Being an Opposite-Sex Clone, Laura is extremely sensitive to genetic experimentation and exploitation. It lead to her siding with the Sisters against Alchemax in All-New Wolverine, and the central plot of the Tamaki series involved her hunting down and shutting down further attempts to experiment on her genetics. She has outright stated that she refuses to let anyone else suffer as she did, and intends to make good on that promise. Additionally, Laura spent some time as a Street Walker under a particularly sadistic and cruel pimp. As a result, she's evolved into something of a Wife-Basher Basher who goes out of her way to bust up any human and sex traffickers she comes across. On several occasions she has outright killed people she caught brutalizing prostitutes (and in one case killed a man who murdered a girl she thought was a prostitute).

Huge Girl, Tiny Guy: Depending on the Artist. Her height vs. Logan's height varies a lot. Mostly due to how Logan's height changed since Hugh Jackman played him in the movie (Logan started at 5'2", spent a lot of time at 5'5", and now is sometimes drawn actually tall.) During New X-Men, Laura was half a head shorter than Logan. She is also usually depicted as shorter than her primary love interests, Hellion and Warren. She's officially listed at 5'1", so canonically would be this towards most anyone.

I Am Not Pretty: Laura is quite clearly a very beautiful young woman, whose looks are frequently commented upon. Laura, however, doesn't see it for herself, which stems from her abusive upbringing aimed to strip her of her humanity, resulting in very poor self-esteem and sense that her life has little value.

Also with Kimura, of all people. Both suffered severe physical and emotional abuse in their past that's largely shaped and defined who they are now. Both also only had one or two people in their lives when they were young who showed them love and kindness, and attempted to repair the damage that was done. The difference is that Kimura became an Ax-Crazy psychopath who uses the abuse and bullying she was subjected to as an excuse to do it to others herself, while Laura is making an ongoing effort to heal.

Glass Cannon: Like Logan, Laura has adamantium-reinforced claws in her forearms that can cut through most things with absurd ease. In addition, she possesses similar claws in her feet that augment her graceful fighting style, letting her dish out tons of damage before her opponents can even react. However, unlike Logan — whose entire skeleton is laced with adamantium, giving him unbreakable bones — only Laura's claws are augmented, meaning she can still be incapacitated by broken bones and her organs are more vulnerable.

Distaff Counterpart: To Wolverine and Daken. The writers explicitly designed her with the question in mind: "If Wolverine were the male of the species, what would the female be like?" They decided that she would be leaner so she could chase prey like a lioness and would have two claws on her hands and one on each foot so that she could climb trees and puncture the gut of any predators who managed to tackle her.

comment
Family Eye Resemblance: Played with: Laura's eyes were made green to establish her Strong Family Resemblance to her creator/mother, Sarah Kinney, even though Laura doesn't actually possess any of Sarah's genetic material. The Hunt For Wolverine: Adamantium Agenda #4 reveals this is because Laura does indeed carry Sarah's DNA, making her genetically her daughter. In Generations #3 Logan remarks that Laura has his mother's eyes. However as noted above, Laura's eyes are green, while Elizabeth Howlett's are blue, making it something in Laura's eyes that reminds him of his mother, rather than their appearance.note Never mind that at the time the story is set, Logan wouldn't have had memory of his mother in the first place.

No Plans, No Prototype, No Backup: Initially averted, and ultimately invoked. Laura is the prototype, and once she is successfully created essentially is also the plans since the Facility can (and does, as is discovered near the end) of Innocence Lost use her genetic material to create additional clones (which would also serve as a backup). The entirety of the last act is Sarah setting X loose with specific orders to destroy her unborn "sisters," and all equipment and research associated with the project to prevent the Facility from recreating her. A big reason the Facility has made several attempts to recover her is so they can use her as a template for more assassins.

comment
Clones Are People, Too: It tends to vary depending on her self-esteem. When she first appeared she thought very little of herself, and for a time she viewed herself as expendable in part because she was a clone. However after Character Development greatly improved her sense of self worth, she's now come to believe that clones are just as "real" as normal people. However it's quite common for people seeking to put her down to call her "clone" as an insult, and much of the torture inflicted on her by the Facility was because Rice did not differentiate her from Wolverine.

Character Development
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_3b113b7
comment
On the less frightening end of the spectrum, when she breaks down emotionally she breaks down, and it's a sign of just how bad things are when Laura loses control of her emotional state. This has been downplayed as Character Development led to her expressing her feelings more freely, but her becoming unusually emotional is still a sure sign of a Heroic BSoD in progress.

Blessed with Suck
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_3c3f28a5
comment
She also has pretty much every Blessed with Suck trait as Wolverine: Her heightened senses mean she's enduring a constant barrage of sensory overload in a crowded room, and because of her Healing Factor, every time she extends her claws it tears up her skin again. Laura's not bothered as severely by the adamantium since it only covers her claws, but she does note in her solo series it still makes swimming a bit harder than it would be otherwise. Also, even though her claws are laced with adamantium, the bones of her hands and feet are not reinforced, meaning the vibration of striking something with her claws with sufficient force could conceivably shatter the bones in her hands, wrists, ankles and feet. Ouch.

Fisk then feeds information to Fade via a mole in his organization leading the gangster to kidnap her, bringing her right where she needs to be to pick up the trigger scent-laced letter her target was slipped as part of the plan.

Armed Legs: While Logan has three claws in each hand, Laura has only two. The third claw is instead located in each of her feet, making her kicks potentially lethal. Her fighting style thus incorporates Combat Parkour in order to bring the foot claws into play. She's also known to not use them and rely more on the claws in her hands. This allows her to bring them out to get the drop on an opponent who assumes she shares Wolverine's claw arrangement (as Task Master and Black Mamba discovered to their regret).

Wretched Hive: Madripoor, in all its gritty glory, is the main setting of Collision. Under Tyger Tiger it actually wasn't that bad, as she largely had the gangs under her control, and put an end to the drug and human trafficking that made up the worst of the city's criminal elements in the past. Unfortunately by the time Laura and Gambit arrive, Daken has muscled in as Tyger's Man Behind the Man, and Malcolm Colcord is kidnapping innocent people off the streets for his experiments.

Daken and Laura take turns delivering this to each other during their rampage through Colcord's base. Daken tries to call her out on her empathy for others, believing that her skills as a killer make her better than everyone around her, and that her heart only forces her to hold back. Laura flatly tells him that she doesn't fight because she has something to prove, but for something bigger than herself. She then turns this around on him, asking why he holds back by not taking the risk of allowing himself to actually care for anyone. Daken doesn't really have an answer.

Spock Speak: Most fans consider Laura to have a very rigid, measured way of talking. However this voice was primarily used when written under Liu, while other writers, including Kyle and Yost, tended to be more casual. Her voice under Bendis went much more towards the opposite extreme, veering near to the standard "Bendis Voice."

Although Laura has had a few more traditional costumes (a variation of Wolverine's Shi'ar "wild" suit, her New X-Men, X-Force, and All-New X-Men uniforms, and now the Wolverine costume), she's spent almost as much time in civvies as she has in an actual costume: She was introduced in a Stripperific coat, corset/tank top, miniskirt, and fishnets ensemble (justified as she was a prostitute at the time), she actually spent more time in New X-Men wearing Painted-On Pants and a sports bra than in her actual uniform, wore a similar outfit for the duration of Avengers Academy, and only wore her then-current X-Force uniform twice during the Liu series.

Villainous Crush
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_437820dc
comment
Villainous Crush: Laura has picked up a couple of these: Kimura is her Arch-Nemesis, whose obsession with X veers into full-on Stalker with a Crush, to the point that her obsession over Laura reads like a jilted Psycho Ex-Girlfriend. During the time she spent as a Streetwalker in NYX she was her pimp, Zebra Daddy's, favorite girl (and it's heavily suggested he sampled the goods himself). To the point that her running away with Kiden Nixon's group, after a John committed suicide during one of their sessions, drove the rest of the plot with Daddy's escalating efforts to get her back. Gamesmaster — an omnipath who can read all minds, everywhere, and can't turn it off — developed an obsession with her because he finds her mind a refreshingly quiet and peaceful place to hang out. Whether or not Laura actually welcomes his presence in her head never enters into his considerations, and he frequently addresses her with endearments, calling her his "wicked, lovely girl." Hellverine wants her to lead his armies, and it's heavily implied that he just plain wants her. He captures the above-mentioned Gamesmaster when he finds him poking around Laura's mind, and presents him muzzled and in chains as a gift (Gamesmaster also tried to drive away Hellverine to protect Laura, which got him caught in the first place). He makes several advances towards her, including appearing to her as a naked Cyclops. Played for laughs in All New Wolverine, when she gets doused in a pheromone designed to make Fin Fang Foom randy for whatever is marked with it. The moment he gets a whiff of her, the background is replaced by a giant Heart Symbol.

Broken Ace: Although miles ahead of her peers in terms of her maturity, skills, and experience, Laura is a very broken, damaged and withdrawn girl prone to bouts of severe (if not suicidal) depression. Her preparedness to sacrifice herself for others without hesitation stems from a poor sense of self-worth, and she habitually cuts herself when severely stressed or upset because she doesn't know how to deal with her feelings (such as her jealousy when she sees Surge kiss Hellion).

Early Installment Weirdness
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_4f4372e9
comment
Early Installment Weirdness: Subject to this in her early appearances in Uncanny X-Men, before her personality was formally established in Innocence Lost, Target: X, and New X-Men. For example in Uncanny she immediately introduces herself as "X-23" when she encounters Wolverine, even though she later would rarely use that name herself. Uncanny also suggests that she and Logan had never met before, or that Logan had no idea who she was, even though Target X would establish that Sarah Kinney sent him a copy of her letter before attempting to free her.note This was later retconned to Logan pretending for her benefit. And while she's always been portrayed as anti-social, under Claremont it manifested as a much more snarling and Feral Child personality than The Stoic she's best known as. She's also frequently drawn aping Psylocke's mannerisms in the background in Uncanny, something that would be out of character under her later characterization. Additionally, one early issue implied her entire skeleton was bonded with adamantium, when it was later established that only her claws are.

It's further implied that one of the reasons she repressed her emotions is because she didn't know how to handle them or the memories of her past; when she did completely abandon her stoic exterior, her displays of emotion tended to be quite extreme and often explosive (such as destroying a bathroom in a confused rage when she saw Surge kiss Hellion). Ironically, the emotionally detached state that others scorned her for was in place for their own safety.

Rape as Backstory: Subtly done: Laura was no older than fifteen in NYX, during which time she was a prostitute under a sadistic and violent pimp. As she was legally unable to provide consent to most, if not all, of her Johns,note age of consent in New York City where she was living at the time is 17, while a teenager younger than 16 and older than 13 can legally have sex with someone no more than four years older than them and the fact that she was essentially forced into sexual slavery by her circumstances and Zebra Daddy's violent control over her (who it's implied also raped her), Laura was a victim of statutory (and possible actual) rape.

Doppelgänger Gets Same Sentiment
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_52a7e035
comment
Doppelgänger Gets Same Sentiment: X23 was abused by her creator because she was an Opposite-Sex Clone of Wolverine. He hated Wolverine because of his father's death related to the Weapon X project, and so X-23, grown from his DNA, made a good scapegoat for his frustrations with the other mutant.

Panty Shot: Variation: One frame during the "Collision" crossover has Laura tucking a folded up document she and Daken recover from Malcolm Colcord into her pants. Not inside a pocket, inside her pants. She flashes a whale tail in that panel, when she pulls the waistband of her costume away from her hip. It may have been even less blatantly Fanservice had she just been Going Commando. It doesn't help that the panel is centered right on her butt.

comment
Civvie Spandex: Although Laura has had a few more traditional costumes (a variation of Wolverine's Shi'ar "wild" suit, her New X-Men, X-Force, and All-New X-Men uniforms, and now the Wolverine costume), she's spent almost as much time in civvies as she has in an actual costume: She was introduced in a Stripperific coat, corset/tank top, miniskirt, and fishnets ensemble (justified as she was a prostitute at the time), she actually spent more time in New X-Men wearing Painted-On Pants and a sports bra than in her actual uniform, wore a similar outfit for the duration of Avengers Academy, and only wore her then-current X-Force uniform twice during the Liu series. It becomes almost literal in the costume Mike Choi designed for Volume 4, as he based it heavily on athletic wear after surveying women in their late-teens and early-20s about what they would actually wear as a superhero.

Consulting a Convicted Killer: While Laura was never a convicted killer, the trope is nonetheless in play in issue 7. The NYPD brings her on as a consultant in a serial murder case because of her expertise. She quickly puts her skills into play to identify the next victim, and puts herself and Gabby in a position to catch the killer.

Not Allowed to Grow Up: Word of God from Craig Kyle is that this was the plan: Because Laura's healing factor was activated at such an early age, she would remain a child much longer than normal. While still technically in effect thanks to Comic-Book Time, it was still averted when Joe Quesada aged her up to a teenager in NYX. Averted further in All-New Wolverine, in which she is firmly established as an adult at 20 years old.

Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_643879c7
comment
Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames: As noted on the trope page, a non-film example that's played with. It's initially inverted since Laura wasn't given a real name until she was thirteen years old, when Sarah names her as she's dying. Until then she was either referred to by her Facility codename, X-23, or various insults (particularly Rice calling her "animal") to dehumanize her. Most of her friends, loved ones and teammates just call her Laura, and occasionally they'll use "X" as a sort of nickname. She's addressed much less frequently as "X-23" in-universe (usually by people such as Kimura who intentionally use it to dehumanize her), though it is the name she's usually marketed under. She doesn't begin using a codename with regularity until she takes up the Wolverine mantle. In her movie debut itself, the only appearances of "X-23" are in her dossiers (and more specifically, Laura is X-23-23, the 23rd subject of the project to create mutant clones). The bad guys refuse to use any name with her, but her nurse calls her Laura, leading Xavier and Logan to do so as well.

Implacable Man: If Laura was sent to kill you, she would. Not. Stop. until you were dead, and if you were marked with the trigger scent, nothing would save you. She will keep coming unless you can inflict enough damage to knock her out, and once she does get back up she'll just come after you again. Unfortunately, this comes back to bite the Facility themselves hard when Sarah gets fed up with their abuse and turns Laura loose against them. Once Sarah orders her to take them down, nothing could stop her from slaughtering everyone (not that she needed to be ordered to do it). Laura still retains this tenacity even after joining the X-Men.

Pretty much her entire life. Her mother finally decides to take a stand and rescue her from the Facility? Turns out she's contaminated by the trigger scent and Laura kills her in an Unstoppable Rage just as it seems they're about to escape. Welcomed into her aunt's home, where she strikes up a close friendship with her cousin, Megan, and begins to feel that she's part of a family? Turns out her aunt's boyfriend was an agent planted by the Facility who calls in Kimura, forcing Laura to send her last remaining family into hiding to keep them safe. Logan talks her down from a Murder-Suicide and offers her a home at the Xavier school where she can get help coping with all the hell she's been through? S.H.I.E.L.D. attacks her and Captain America puts her under arrest. And now that it finally seems as if she's beginning to put her life together and heal, she gets shanghaied by Arcade to fight other troubled teenage heroes to the death for his amusement. The poor girl finally begins to catch a break by the time she takes up the Wolverine mantle, with her life improving considerably after the events on Murder World.

Meaningful Name: Although frequently cited as the 23rd attempt to clone Wolverine period, Word of God confirms the name "X-23" specifically refers to her being the 23rd attempt at a female clone, after an unknown number of males. Her facility code name therefore derives "X" from the X chromosome, and "23" for the 23rd attempt.

My Greatest Failure: Laura is deeply haunted by and remorseful over all of the deaths she caused, and once even asked Ghost Rider to use his Penance Stare on her because she believed she deserved punishment for all of her killings. Killing her mother in a trigger scent-fueled rage is the single biggest one, to the point that when Logan finally manages to bring her to the Xavier school, Emma Frost tries to force her to leave by taunting her with a psychic ghost of her mother's dead body blaming Laura for her death. It's enough to drive the normally stoic Laura to tears.

Iconic Outfit: The corset, fishnets and miniskirt outfit Laura wore in Target: X may be one of her most common looks in fan art, even though she only wore that in one book (though it is similar to the outfits she wore in her debut appearance in NYX). If not this, she's drawn in her black Painted-On Pants, sports bra, and locket from New X-Men. Her X-Force uniform is perhaps her most popular actual costume.

Junior Counterpart: To her father, Wolverine, with all the same powers. However it's mildly subverted in that Laura is much more tactical and in control of her anger than Logan ever was.

Scarily Competent Tracker
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_6feaf27b
comment
Scarily Competent Tracker: Her sense of smell is even better than Logan's, and she's demonstrably been able to locate individuals in a crowded city hours after they were last there. In one case it even allowed her to completely reconstruct a crime scene — including the movements of dozens of individuals — by scent alone. Combine that with her extensive espionage and intelligence training. So when she threatens some mooks by telling them once she has their scent there is nowhere they can hide from her, she's not bluffing.

Killer Rabbit

comment
Killer Rabbit: Laura is physically quite unimposing, generally being depicted as a slight, pretty teenage girl. She's also one of the most deadly assassins in the entire Marvel Universe, having a body count into the hundreds, if not thousands. By the time she was thirteen. On numerous missions Laura has been shown actively taking advantage of this trope by playing up her harmless appearance (whether by disguising herself as a handicapped girl, or a Girl Scout selling cookies, etc.). Even those who have heard of her are stunned when they actually see her for the first time.

And also on a meta level, many fans believed that her taking on the Wolverine name was a sign of her star rising, and that she would be gaining a starring presence among the X-Men as a result. And then Old Man Logan stole her thunder, with most writers using him whenever they needed a Wolverine for events. It got even worse for her fans under ResurrXion, when Laura was removed from her only team book, while Logan got three teams.

The Comically Serious
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_76b4b7dd
comment
Through multiple traumatic events in her backstory, Laura learned to never trust or emotionally connect with anyone. This made her an outcast among her fellow teenagers, and even most of the teachers perceived her as a heartless killer who is unable to think as a human or desire anything. But her character development (and eventual journey to find herself) ultimately subverts this trope; she gradually becomes accustomed to emotion, and bonds with other abuse victims who understand why she prefers solitude. By the time of later books she's interacting with others on a relatively normal, if still more reserved, manner.

Technical Pacifist: Has steadily been evolving into this over the course of her life. While even from early on she hated killing, when she first joined the X-Men she was utterly ruthless and unflinching with her use of lethal force. Usually to the horror of her friends and teammates. However over time she's become increasingly reluctant to cut loose, until by the time she takes on the Wolverine name she makes every effort to avoid killing.

Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Laura's first assassination was at age 9. She was immediately put to work by the Facility afterwards, and by 16 she's an accomplished enough killer to worry Captain America. Justified since she was bred and raised from birth specifically to be a Living Weapon, but her utter ruthlessness and cold detachment makes her an even better killer than Wolverine. It's mildly subverted in that she doesn't want to be a weapon, but it nonetheless comes completely naturally to her.

Even then, she's continued to fight severe, possibly even suicidal, depression.

"The Reason You Suck" Speech: Daken and Laura take turns delivering this to each other during their rampage through Colcord's base. Daken tries to call her out on her empathy for others, believing that her skills as a killer make her better than everyone around her, and that her heart only forces her to hold back. Laura flatly tells him that she doesn't fight because she has something to prove, but for something bigger than herself. She then turns this around on him, asking why he holds back by not taking the risk of allowing himself to actually care for anyone. Daken doesn't really have an answer. Julian lays one on Laura in issue 19, after she rejects him. Angry over the way she has brushed him off for the entire "Misadventures in Babysitting" story, he finally loses his temper and accuses her of really not having feelings after all. Laura responds that she does, she just doesn't feel anything for him.

Modified Clone: Two story arcs center around attempts to duplicate Laura: First, Robert Chandler returns creating the X-Assassins, genetic clones modified with the deliberate destruction of their Healing Factor, and further made into Cyborgs. These clones were designed to be disposable, allowing them to be terminated upon completion of a mission to prevent them from developing the same free will and sense of humanity that ultimately led to Laura's own escape. In the final arc, Laura and Gabby discover that further cloning experiments has lead to the creation of X-23 [[spoilerturkeys]].

Alternate Universe: Like most Marvel Universe characters, she has several: She was originally introduced in X-Men: Evolution, an alternate universe from Marvel's main universe, 616. League of Losers: A villain from the future uses historical data to kill all the well known heroes in the world. Only a handful of heroes who weren't in the historical records (making them "losers") survive. X-23 was one of those heroes. X-Men: The End: A near future version of the character. Strangely, she not only appears to have an adamantium skeleton, but her muscle tissue appear robotic or techno-organic. Artume-ruled reality: In a temporary alternate reality created by Amazon Queen Artume where women rule the world, X-23 is known as Wolverine, and is one of the main members of the Avengers. Age of Apocalypse: The daughter of Logan and Mariko Yashida who goes by the name Kirika is found in Mr. Sinister's lab in a container labeled "X-23". All-New Wolverine #9 reveals there was a version of X-23 raised by the Wolverine who eventually became Old Man Logan. Another from All-New Wolverine #30 is a version in which the heroes won an all-out war against the villains, and ushered in a utopia. In this universe, Laura is Queen of Madripoor, and is dying of Clone Degeneration. X-Men Film Series introduces a really young and Mexican version of Laura in Logan, played by actress Dafne Keen.

Protagonist-Centered Morality
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_89434320
comment
Protagonist-Centered Morality: The book intends the reader to side with Laura over Hellion during their final fight in "Misadventures In Babysitting." While Julian certainly did lose his temper with her and say some hurtful things, however the book ignores the fact that Laura also treated Julian very badly throughout the arc; She brushed him off when he just tried to talk to her about his Heroic BSoD at the beginning of the arc, stonewalled him when he just needed her friendship while trying to cope, and generally treated him like The Load while trying to rescue the Richards kids from the Collector.

Asshole Victim: In issue #4 of volume 3, she meets a young girl who's forced to lure Laura into a trap. Laura, mistakenly believing the girl is a prostitute trying to recruit her for a pimp, doesn't fall for it. Instead she tries to help the girl, who flees instead. When Laura catches up she finds the girl has already been killed by her handler as punishment for the failure. She kills him in retaliation, and no tears were shed for him.

Your Worst Memory: While Laura has endured loads of pain and trauma in her young life, and it has taken years for her to come to terms with the terrible things she has done, and had done to her, it's implied her single worst memory is of being forced to kill her mother under the effects of the trigger scent. Emma Frost specifically uses this memory to torment her in an effort to drive her away from the school. It reduces her to tears.

Children Forced to Kill: The first time Laura ever killed anyone was at the age of 9, when Rice used the Trigger Scent to force her to kill her sensei. Her first assassination mission was when she was 11. By the time she escaped the Facility at age 13 she had killed hundreds of people, and she continued killing even after joining the X-Men.

comment
Send in the Clones: Laura gets entangled in a plot by Ms. Sinister during her solo series. Seeing as cloning is pretty much Sinister's hat, it goes without saying that clones play quite a big part in the plot: Claudine herself is fighting a Clone by Conversion process, as virus ravaging her body is slowly turning her into a clone of Sinister as part of a Crazy-Prepared gambit to return from death. She wants Laura's body to escape this fate. All of Claudine's "children" are clones created by Sinister in one of his labs. One, Alice, figures heavily into the plot. One of whom becomes the new host for Sinister himself after Laura critically wounds Claudine.

Laura's decision to spare Henry Sutter in Innocence Lost is treated as significant in that book because she never failed to complete a mission, and her refusing to kill him is a sign to Sarah that her humanity hadn't been entirely stolen from her. Later books introduce more people that Laura failed to kill as ordered. Some were other children she chose to spare (Liu series), and at least one individual she maimed, but managed to escape (All-New Wolverine).

Jail Bait: During the events of NYX Laura was no older than 16. And she was a prostitute. Age of consent in New York City where she was living is 17. Even afterwards her style of dress trends towards the provocative, and with the Sliding Time Scale it's unlikely she's aged much since then. Being underage also doesn't stop her from going clubbing with Jubilee or Warren, even though she would likely be too young to get past the doors. Ultimately subverted by All-New Wolverine, in which she's clearly established as being 20 years old.

comment
Classical Anti-Hero: When she first appears, Laura is plagued with doubts about herself. She's prone to bouts of suicidal depression, practices Self-Harm, questions whether she's "real" or worthy of life because she's a clone, accepts her role as a killer and that it devalues her compared to people like Wolfsbane, has a strained relationship with her father figure as a result, wonders whether she even has a soul, (and even asks Ghost Rider to use his Penance Stare on her) and believes she deserves punishment for the things she did under the Facility's control. Over time, she comes to accept that she had no control over what the Facility made her do, (especially when the Trigger was involved) accepts that being a clone doesn't mean she's not a "real" person and comes to value her own life, and adopts a Thou Shalt Not Kill attitude, using lethal force only as a last resort.

Wife-Basher Basher: Laura pulls a variation of this with prostitutes as a result of her experiences under Zebra Daddy's control. On several occasions afterwards she's been shown reacting very violently to seeing other girls abused as she was.

Not So Stoic
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_a8a4b41e
comment
Not So Stoic: Laura as a rule keeps her emotions tightly controlled, and it's a significant character trait she has difficulties expressing, or even understanding, what she's feeling. She endures the years of physical and emotional abuse inflicted on her by Zander Rice and Kimura in complete silence, even when her creator/mother, Sarah, tries to get her to talk about it. At least until she's forced to kill Sarah by the Trigger Scent during their escape from the Facility, at which point for a couple pages Laura becomes a lonely, broken girl desperately crying over her mother's body to come back to her. She also breaks down in tears once again when she's forced to cut off ties with her cousin and aunt to protect them form Kimura. The only other times she generally lets her guard down is when someone she cares about is in danger. In which case it's a very, very bad idea to be on the receiving end.

Super Senses
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_a8c462db
comment
Super Senses: Better than even Wolverine's. Since their enhanced senses are a byproduct of their Healing Factor, this may be because Laura's is more powerful. Her sense of smell is so refined she's been able to reconstruct crime scenes hours after the events, even able to determine by scent alone that one victim of a killing had high cholesterol. Laura's vision is so keen that she was able to see a single nanite in a test tube with her naked eyes.

Yo Yo Plot Point: Every single character arc of her's revolves around learning to be more than a weapon. This comic sums it up pretty well. Subverted at the end of her solo series, she accepts that part of her is a weapon, but she won't let that beat her. See also Trauma Conga Line. It seems like just as she starts to become more or less stable, some fresh new trauma hits her and sends her back to square one. Finally starts to get averted after Avengers Arena, as she pieces herself back together and things begin turning around. Particularly by finally dealing with Kimura and the trigger scent, and getting her family (Megan and Debbie) back.

The Stakeout: Laura does this twice: The first is when she observes Debbie's family before revealing herself, which she does for nearly a month. She does it later with Logan, however a freak shift in the wind she couldn't account for tipped him off, and led him to lure her away from the school where he could confront her with less risk of collateral damage.

Harmful to Minors: Practically from birth, Laura was subjected to violent imagery and outright physical and emotional abuse, including being ordered to kill a puppy when her creators decided she had too much empathy, who then threatened to torture it to death and make her watch when she failed to complete the assignment. And this is before they started sending her on assassination missions, she killed her own mother during her escape under the effects of the Trigger Scent, and became a child prostitute under an abusive and violent pimp on the streets of New York City.

Or Was It a Dream?
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_ac36578e
comment
Or Was It a Dream?: The final issue of the Liu series opens with Laura sleeping naked and surrounded by wolves. When she awakens again, she's fully clothed and alone. Later in the issue she's crashing at a trailer park after giving one of the locals a lift when she's awakened by the howling of wolves outside. Laura follows them, and comes across the same pack of all-black wolves from her dream. She chases after them, eventually stripping naked, which ultimately leads to a battle with her Enemy Without. At its conclusion she snaps out of the vision and finds herself naked in the snow, while the trailer park residents are out looking for her. Whether the incident with the wolves actually happened, or was all just in her mind, is left ambiguous.

Laura is typically calm, collected, and withdrawn. Even though she inherited Logan's temper, she's much more in control of it, typically keeps her head in a fight, and kills with a cold, efficient detachment. If she's ever visibly angry, you've likely just done something incredibly stupid, and you should be running. Fast.

comment
Ms. Fanservice: Her most common civvies include corsets, Dangerously Short Skirts, Zettai Ryouiki, Stocking Filler, Bare Your Midriff, and Painted-On Pants. Even her uniforms have traditionally been more revealing, such as her X-Force outfit. Although downplayed more recently, with her civilian style becoming a bit more casual and modest, her wearing the classic Gold and Blue spandex as Wolverine is its own brand of fanservice for some. That the costume is skin-tight still leads to more conventional Male Gaze moments (including quite infamously in a clear shot of her backside in the Monsters Unleashed tie-in to All-New X-Men, and on the cover to the final issue of Inhumans vs. X-Men). The dress she wore in Rogue and Gambit's wedding demonstrate that, despite her height (or lack of it), She's Got Legs. Her post-ResurrXtion black and gray suit qualifies as well, combining a Biker Babe aesthetic with bared shoulders without the jacket.

Abusive Parents
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_b11ac9f5
comment
Abusive Parents: Depending on your definition of "parents." Zander Rice was one of the lead scientists involved with her creation and training, and the abuse he subjected Laura to was outright horrific. Sarah Kinney, her biological mother, (surrogate womb and some genetic material) was ordered by the Facility to deny her an emotional connection, so was forced to shun her when Laura reached out to her. To her credit Sarah defied those orders whenever she was able, but this still led to much of her emotional damage. Then there's her handler, Kimura, who abused Laura as badly, if not worse, than Rice. It really says something when as poor of a father as Logan can be (which he even outright admits), he's still one of the better parental figures Laura's had.

Emotionless Girl
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_b9db28ab
comment
Emotionless Girl: Through multiple traumatic events in her backstory, Laura learned to never trust or emotionally connect with anyone. This made her an outcast among her fellow teenagers, and even most of the teachers perceived her as a heartless killer who is unable to think as a human or desire anything. But her character development (and eventual journey to find herself) ultimately subverts this trope; she gradually becomes accustomed to emotion, and bonds with other abuse victims who understand why she prefers solitude. By the time of later books she's interacting with others on a relatively normal, if still more reserved, manner. It's further implied that one of the reasons she repressed her emotions is because she didn't know how to handle them or the memories of her past; when she did completely abandon her stoic exterior, her displays of emotion tended to be quite extreme and often explosive (such as destroying a bathroom in a confused rage when she saw Surge kiss Hellion). Ironically, the emotionally detached state that others scorned her for was in place for their own safety.

No Social Skills: Because Laura was deprived of normal human social interaction, her social skills are generally rather lacking. She's blunt, and struggles with social niceties.

Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Laura wasn't born an emotionless killing machine. The Facility consciously destroyed her innocence. Much of Laura's life after escaping the is spent trying to repair the damage that was done to her.

Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_beb91a53
comment
Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter: Laura's creator, Dr. Sarah Kinney, was described as the foremost expert on mutant genetics and was hired by the Facility after her proposal to clone Wolverine. Sarah's interest was purely For Science!, and directly likened the idea of cloning a mutant to godhood. All this knowing full well that the child would be raised to be a Living Weapon heading in. Laura herself is frequently described as Sarah's spitting-image, (she does carry Sarah's DNA, after all) and it's made quite clear Laura is intended to be a quite beautiful young woman.

Badass Bookworm: Not the same degree as some, but Laura is incredibly gifted intellectually and received an extensive (albeit narrow) education during her training. Her intellect (at least for a seven year-old) is described by Rice in Innocence Lost as being "off the charts." Her official power rating at Marvel places her firmly in "Genius" category.

comment
She-Fu: Laura's fighting style is highly acrobatic, using flips, handstands and cartwheels to bring her foot claws into play and to avoid being struck. Justified because her body is much less durable than Logan's since only her claws are laced with adamantium. Even though she does heal faster, she's much more prone to being knocked out of a fight by broken bones or dislocated (or severed) limbs.

Yank the Dog's Chain: Pretty much her entire life. Her mother finally decides to take a stand and rescue her from the Facility? Turns out she's contaminated by the trigger scent and Laura kills her in an Unstoppable Rage just as it seems they're about to escape. Welcomed into her aunt's home, where she strikes up a close friendship with her cousin, Megan, and begins to feel that she's part of a family? Turns out her aunt's boyfriend was an agent planted by the Facility who calls in Kimura, forcing Laura to send her last remaining family into hiding to keep them safe. Logan talks her down from a Murder-Suicide and offers her a home at the Xavier school where she can get help coping with all the hell she's been through? S.H.I.E.L.D. attacks her and Captain America puts her under arrest. And now that it finally seems as if she's beginning to put her life together and heal, she gets shanghaied by Arcade to fight other troubled teenage heroes to the death for his amusement. The poor girl finally begins to catch a break by the time she takes up the Wolverine mantle, with her life improving considerably after the events on Murder World. On a meta level for her fans, the revelation that she would appear in Amazing X-Men under her creators, Yost and Kyle, was falsely reported and no actual plans are in place for them to be writing her again in the immediate future. And also on a meta level, many fans believed that her taking on the Wolverine name was a sign of her star rising, and that she would be gaining a starring presence among the X-Men as a result. And then Old Man Logan stole her thunder, with most writers using him whenever they needed a Wolverine for events. It got even worse for her fans under ResurrXion, when Laura was removed from her only team book, while Logan got three teams.

The Soulless
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_c4dc0698
comment
The Soulless: This is a running source of angst for Laura for much of her history, particularly throughout the Liu ongoing: In The Killing Dream, Hellverine tells her that as a clone, (and because of all the death she's caused) she has no soul, and drags her into a Battle in the Center of the Mind to to give her a chance to prove him wrong. Laura encounters her inner self (later implied to actually be a part of the Enigma Force that remained with her after her previous contact with the entity), who reveals that she wasn't born an emotionless killing machine, but that it took the conscious effort of the project to break her. This revelation gives Laura the power to defeat the demon. However, she remains in doubt over how much of his taunting was the truth afterwards. When Miss Sinister later attempts to steal her body, Laura questions her about having a soul, but Sinister is unable to answer and admits it's something she's given little thought. She also once asked Ghost Rider to use his Penance Stare on her, both because she believed she deserved to be punished for the pain she had caused, and, since it only works on someone who has a soul, because it would prove one way or another whether she did. However when he offered to carry out her wishes at the end of the encounter she ultimately decided it didn't matter. During Circle of Four, a different demon, Blackheart, calls her a silly girl for pondering whether or not she has a soul by reminding her that she's in Hell, and people can't go to Hell without a soul. Any remaining question about the matter is firmly laid to rest in All-New Wolverine #29, when Muramasa uses a piece of her soul to craft the Muramasa Armor.

Stronger Than They Look
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_c5dd0ab1
comment
Stronger Than They Look: Laura is a short, slight, pretty teenage girl, and outwardly she doesn't seem particularly threatening. However one secondary effect of her Healing Factor is that her muscle and bone tissue is much denser than that of a normal human. As a result, her muscles exert more force than that of a typical girl her size. Additionally, her bones are stronger and harder to break, which reduces another limit since her muscles are capable of greater exertion without risk of breaking her own bones.note Human muscles are actually strong enough to break your own bones in extreme feats of strength, which is one reason why biological safeguards normally prevent you from utilizing the full extent of your strength. In fact Laura was fully capable of lifting carrying Old Man Logan on her back, and climbing out of Fin Fang Foom's digestive tract, adamantium skeleton and all.note Granted, much of Logan's lower torso was partially digested, but his skeleton alone weighs around 100lbs or more.

Pretty much any time Sarah Kinney appears Laura is drawn as her spitting image. She also looks a lot like her aunt Deborah, who also shares a Strong Family Resemblance with Sarah. It's eventually established in Adamantium Agenda #4 that Laura shares Sarah's DNA, thus explaining their similar appearances.

Immortal Assassin: It's unclear how long someone with her type of Healing Factor can live if left to their own devices, but based on Wolverine and Sabretooth Laura could have a lifespan of centuries if not longer (Romulus is possibly thousands if not tens of thousands of years old). While she can be killed, Laura's ability to bounce back rapidly from even fatal injuries makes that incredibly difficult.

Issue 4: The opening of The Brady Bunch is referenced at the beginning of the issue. Issue 6: The title of the issue, and Gabby's code-name for the mission, is Operation Kindergarten Clone. Laura chastises her over the name, while Gabby continues making references to the movie by referencing Arnold's famous delivery of "It's not a tumor!"

Cassandra Truth: Because Sarah covered up her kidnapping in Innocence Lost, no one believed Megan's story about him, or of her rescuer (Laura herself). This is a substantial part of what led to her troubles with her mother and in school, as they all thought she was simply making it up. Laura assuring her it did happen helps bring her comfort, and straighten up Megan's relationship with her mother.

Dark Action Girl: Basically what the Facility turned her into. She usually dresses in dark colors, is often emotionally standoffish, and is willing to kill and torture to achieve her goals, even after joining the X-Men and attempting to turn her life around. However it's been increasingly downplayed over time, and while she's still able to kill if she has to, thanks to Character Development it's more and more her last resort. By the beginning of All-New Wolverine she's verging on outright becoming The Cape.

Race Lift
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_d7c3ba61
comment
Race Lift: Ironically it's her most familiar iteration that's the Race Lift: In her original appearance in X-Men: Evolution, X-23 is Ambiguously Brown, with features that have been interpreted as anything from Latina to First Nations. Word of God states she was modeled on the girl — who was ethnic — who posed for the reference shoot as a thank you. The books made her canonically Caucasian (which, considering she's a clone of Logan, makes sense that she would share his ethnicity). This extends to most other versions of Laura in both the comics and other media, who are also depicted as Caucasian. In the Age of Apocalypse universe, X-23 is half-Japanese due to having Mariko Yashida as her mother. She also has the given name of Kirika, rather than Laura, and has the same claw arrangement as Logan. Many fans therefore view her as X-23 In Name Only. In Logan, Laura is still Caucasian, but Latino (even being portrayed by Anglo-Spaniard actress Dafne Keen), as she was born out of a Mexican mother.

Depending on the Artist
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_d83f3588
comment
Depending on the Artist: She's sometimes drawn with dark skin like her original design in Evolution. Although she's canonically only modestly to a bit above averagely endowed, Paco Medina and Humberto Ramos gave her a positively massive rack during New X-Men. See exhibit DD◊. Her height also tends to vary between short to average, not helped by the fact she's often drawn shorter than Logan, whose height has also varied significantly from artist to artist. Her official height is listed as 5'1". Though Laura is canonically Caucasian in the main universe, some artists draw her in a way that she almost appears Asian or even Latina. Occasionally, covers will draw her slightly beefy and resemble a slightly older version of her Evolution design, only for the story to use her more common skinny goth look. Although her eyes are canonically green, they've also been colored brown or blue in different books.

Breakout Character: Started as a Canon Foreigner for a mostly forgotten animated series, quickly ported to the comics due to positive reception, and her popularity has only grown from there. She was arguably the main character of New X-Men, has had a number of miniseries and now an ongoing series, was included in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 despite having only existed for less than a decade then, and is now almost always included in Team images. She's easily the most popular post-2000 X-Men character.

Despair Event Horizon: Laura hits one at the end. After all the torture and dehumanization the Facility put her through, being forced to kill her mother by the Trigger Scent just as they were about to escape, having to give up all that remained of her family and the normal life she was starting to build to protect them when her Axe Crazy former handler came looking for her, and possibly spending an unspecified time on the streets as a prostitute under a sadistic and abusive pimp (it's unclear where exactly this series falls in her history), Laura finally reaches her breaking point, and seeks out Wolverine believing that all she has left is to kill him and herself. Logan manages to talk her down, but it's implied she has an ongoing battle with severe, if not suicidal, depression, and much of her character arc focuses on putting the pieces back together after all that was done to her.

Psychic Block Defense: Laura has displayed a degree of resistance to powerful telepathy.

Logan has also displayed a similar resistance in the past, but it's unclear if this is a result of their Healing Factor, training, or a result of tampering by Weapon X/The Facility.

O.O.C. Is Serious Business
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_e83f211c
comment
O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Laura is typically calm, collected, and withdrawn. Even though she inherited Logan's temper, she's much more in control of it, typically keeps her head in a fight, and kills with a cold, efficient detachment. If she's ever visibly angry, you've likely just done something incredibly stupid, and you should be running. Fast. On the less frightening end of the spectrum, when she breaks down emotionally she breaks down, and it's a sign of just how bad things are when Laura loses control of her emotional state. This has been downplayed as Character Development led to her expressing her feelings more freely, but her becoming unusually emotional is still a sure sign of a Heroic BSoD in progress.

 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_e8609ec3
comment
Journey to Find Oneself: The overarching plot of the ongoing consists of this as Laura goes "walkabout" in the aftermath of her stint on X-Force, in large part triggered by questions over whether she has a soul after an encounter with Hellverine. She leaves Utopia because she feels there are too many voices trying to tell her who she is, and wishes to find her own answers. It's relatively brief, and ends with Laura deciding to attend Avengers Academy after an invitation from Black Widow. During this time, Laura makes substantial progress in at least coming to terms with herself, even if much of her emotional damage remains.

You Are Number 6: Laura's Facility designation, X-23. She's almost never called this by her friends and teammates, who at most just use "X" as a nickname, but otherwise call her Laura even in the field when they use their own codenames. By contrast, Kimura always refers to her as X-23, which is done deliberately to dehumanize and belittle her. X-23 was the only name she was ever given in her two appearances in Evolution.

comment
Groin Attack: While on a night out with Jubilee during her solo, Laura runs across one of Zebra Daddy's former minions at a club and the man recognizes her. He flippantly comments about how Daddy gave his boys discounts with the prostitutes, but he never got a chance to have Laura. Laura tells him he'll never have her, or any other woman, again, and then proceeds to ensure it's true.

Crossover
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_eb7c34cf
comment
Crossover: "The Killing Dream" ties into the Wolverine in Hell storyline, specifically the period Hellverine is on Utopia. Curiously enough, Laura is the only member of the X-Men who notices something isn't right with Logan. "Collision" plays out in both of Liu's series at the time: X-23, and Daken: Dark Wolverine. "Chaos Theory" is a near-miss variety with NYX: No Way Home. Gambit and Laura arrive at Cecilia Reyes's apartment not long after Kiden and her gang had been staying there.

Promotion to Parent: Laura has found herself in the position of having to raise a thirteen year-old clone of herself created by a division of Alchemax. Energetic and precocious Gabby is quite a handful and the pair frequently butt heads, but They Really Do Love Each Other.

The design is also present on Mike Choi's concept artwork for the 2018 series. She also wears them in the series proper, where this trope is combined with Goggles Do Something Unusual, acting as infrared or night vision goggles.

Combat Parkour: Unlike her genetic father, Wolverine, X-23's fighting style is much more acrobatic and in many of her fight scenes she can be seen using flips and handstands to bring her foot claws into play, and because her body is much less durable since only her claws are bonded with adamantium.

Depending on the Writer
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_fdc4fab4
comment
Depending on the Writer: In the X-Books, Laura is established as having a Healing Factor superior to Wolverine's (see below). However, once she gets to Avengers Academy, Hank Pym warns Hazmat that "her healing factor isn't as strong as Wolverine's". The writer later admitted to the mistake on his part in the letters pages. Her speech patterns are generally accepted to be more formal and laconic than her peers, and tends not to use slang. However the degree tends to vary between writers from outright Spock Speak (Liu) to more naturalistic but still proper (Kyle and Yost), with some signs that her dialogue has become much more relaxed to coincide with her Character Development (Taylor). However some writers dispense with this altogether and write her as they would any teen character (Bendis). Although canonically a Genius Bruiser who carefully analyzes a situation before acting with the most effective strategy (and she can do it quickly, at that), it's not uncommon for some writers to forget the "Genius" part and just throw her right at a threat in a brute-force frontal assault.

Beauty Is Never Tarnished
 X-23 (Comic Book) / int_fe614133
comment
Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Despite being a clone of the famously unattractive Logan it's clear from dialog and her character design that Laura is intended to be a very attractive young woman. And then over the course of her history, she's taken a good deal of punishment, but the only permanent mark on her body is the emblem associated with Captain Universe on the palm of her right hand. Justified, since she has a Healing Factor.

Dark and Troubled Past: Hoo boy. Tortured, abused, trained from childhood to be a living weapon, treated as if she weren't even human by those who created her, forced to kill the only two people who showed her kindness and compassion during her training (one of whom was her mother), and gave up her only other family to protect them from Kimura after she finally escaped. And this isn't even getting into her time as a Street Walker. And unlike Logan for most of his history, she remembers every moment.
