Anyone remember the Woman in the Cloak from the X-23 Series?

So far what we know is that this woman knows Laura very well and somehow she's familiar to Laura. I came up with three theories as to who she could be, feel free to criticize as I know these theories are subject to having holes whatever they may be. Also post your own theories as I'm curious what you all think.

1. A future version of Laura

2. A clone of Sarah Kinney

3. An envoy of Romulus

Too much psychological sci-fi. In my opinion it's Kimura. Although mysterious talk is not her best asset, but after X-23 finishing the remains of the facility in X-Force, she is kinda unemployed. She may have changed since that day and may have her own plans for X. Simple venegance would be quite dull.

If they were clever, I would say future clone of Laura. Since I don't believe they are, it will more likely be something to do with Romulus.

Kimura sounds like a good bet, IMO.

@John Valentine: Kimura will never miss a chance to taunt and abuse Laura, so I don't think it's her.

@Kairan1979: @John Valentine: Kimura's a blunt instrument, this woman's way too subtle and mysterious to be her. You can tell that she's planned this and there's wheels within the wheels. Brains and subtlety just aren't her style.

I say future self judging by what she quoted.

Definitely not Kimura, and if it is she is way out of character.

A female Sith from another universe? never mind ,it's not Kimura ,i'm kind of sure, she doesn't act like her ,beside if it was her ,X-23 can smell it i bet.

Kimura probably. Due to her series being sadly cancelled we may never know.

An avatar of death ala the grim reaper.

I thought it was Selene trying to get some more people on her side for necrosha and that it simply got cut off/left out... But I'm not sure if this was before or after necrosha/x-force. Either way it seems to have been a plot thread that got dropped. Of course it seems like the kind of thing that could be picked up again anytime, an issue a few months or a few decades from now could have some hood lady come out and say "Hi remember that cash I left you? What do you mean it was 30 years ago? Blasted Time Travel Toilet! It always malfunctions!"

She seems to have white hair, so that rules out Kimura and Selene.

O_O I wish they'd do a mini(six issues) series to wrap that up, have Liu just close that chapter or give us some closure for now.

I don't know, but man it has been bothering me ever since the end of the series!!!

they never mentioned her again, like the writers just forgot about her, I was hopping it would give us some more insight on her in the later issues.

By the way seriously X needs another series soon, I'm tired of just seeing her as a small secondary character in other series

@bsmith1190: Romulus said a very similar thing in Wolverine #313 (I've missed a few issues involving Romulus so please don't be a douche about it if he's said this before; and even though this is the first page of the newest issue of the series, it's a spoiler), so I think that there's some what of a connection between the two, I originally thought that it was Remus (Romulus' twin sister) talking to Laura, but then I went back to look at issues 9 and 11 (in which she appears in) of X-23's series and found that the cloaked woman had short dark hair (it only looks white due to the artist giving her hair a little shine), while Remus had uber long red hair, so that cuts Remus out of it (for now I guess). But this woman could be an envoy of Romulus, what she's sent to do (if she was sent by Romulus at all) is still unknown (and that really pissed me off when I heard that X-23's series got cancelled and that we may never find out who this woman was and what she was trying to do). I imagine that they will tell us who this woman is, but it could possibly be in future issues in either Avengers Arena (I think that this seems more like a a story arc that'll carry over to about 6-7 issues or so, and then it'll be Academy again), Wolverine's series, or they may give X-23 back her series (they better keep it going if they do dammit!) to explain it all, hopefully.
