Jamie McKelvie Draws X-23 with short hair

Posted by fbdarkangel (4819 posts) - - Show Bio

I was browsing the internet and I stumbled upon on McKelvie's Tumblr and saw his "Warm up of X-23"

I don't know if it's a cover for the series or not. Either way, I like it! what do you guys think?

Short hair would be an interesting change for X-23

Personally, I like Phil Noto's design for X-23:

I think the new X-Men uniforms look really good.

Personally I prefer Laura with long hair, and it's probably an mistake by the colorist but X-23 has black not brown...
 
But thankfully when I first read the title I was expecting her hair to be Maria Hill short but this isn't that bad and I'll probably warm up to the style sooner or later. But as for her new costume (assuming this is for her current series) I'm still not sure about... <_<

@War Killer: well there are some issues where she has some brownish black hair or full on black. Either way I like the new do!

@fbdarkangel: Well seeing as Wolverine has black hair and she's his clone/daughter I would suspect she should have black hair as well, but I have seen some nice covers where her hair was mistakenly brown. I just prefer it black in my opinion.
 
But I am warming up to it. Do you know if this is actually for her current series or just a random character design? I like the idea of her having a newer uniform, but still keeping some elements from her X-Force uniform as well.

What, no pockets? Oh well...

Wow, this is so different than what I'm used to seeing. X-23 with short hair? Sacrilege! On a more serious side, I don't know how i feel about it. I like X with long flowing hair, but the short is intriguing. I'm fine with it, as long as they explain in the story why she cuts her hair.

Laura looks weird wearing boots like wolverine though, and does she really need the utility belt? Well I guess it's better than exposing her panties sticking stuff in her pants, like she did in Collision. Honestly, since she isn't with the X-men, I'd like to see her wearing normal clothes.

I like the new costume and I've actually seen a lot scans where she's wearing more civilian clothes when she's out in public. Then again, every superhero needs a uniform! :)

@fbdarkangel: Yeah, in the current arc, Phil Noto has been drawing her in civies and in costume.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! X-23 looks so stonefaced with downsyndrome in this pic, this is terrible and WTF is up with the uniforms? Like a hic bowling team. lol

It does look like the costume that she's wearing in the Avengers Academy solicit. So it could be.

Either way, that's a beautiful piece.

Hmm i like it definetly a good future costume.

Especially if they do a flash forward into the future.

I like either way :)

Remember is X-Force when Laura fell into a vat of molten, hot something? She got bald... but it grew exponentially fast after a few panels... must be the healing factor...

(╯°□°)╯No wonder Logan is so hairy!! It grows back the moment he shaves!!

(╯°□°)╯But he should have long hair too!! And if so, how can Daken maintain his mohawk?!

(╯°□°)╯I am thinking too deeply into this!!

I LIKE IT! Bring me another!

I like it too, but I always think short hair on girls looks nice. Also, about the earlier debate from... three months ago. lol Yeah, Laura officially has black hair and green eyes, but colorists do put her with brown hair, and brown eyes sometimes, or other variations.
