Heres a small list of things i want for her

  1. Popularity in the marvel universe** Shes probably my all time favorite and it would be great to see her as well known as storm,wolvy,cyclops and all those people ( even though it probably wont happen :/ )**
  2. Her to find herself **Should explain itself**
  3. Good solo series **Loved just about all of them**
  4. Her to become beyond an average street leveler** It would be awesome for her to become strong and a notch above everyone .**
  5. Her to reconnect with jubilee ** they had an AWESOME Friendship**
  6. Her to get cosmic powers back only to the point where she's like this. Her full power uni looks a little strange. This could be something to counteract her rage trigger into something positive

I replied. She most likely will be strong but not all that superhumanly strong.

@FourthDeity: Let me be the one who will break the ice. I am not quite a fan of the ongoing series (It's not that I dislike it, it just doesn't fit my expectations) mainly because it lacks that spy-action vibe, that was present in Kyle and Yost era. Thus I wish that her stories will be like that again. I adore her for being such a real action-psychological character - no one is as real as her. She is the only character that frequently uses real weapons and tactics rather than simply cutting her way through and she is too down-to-earth to be a superhero. But what I want for her most (it's ONLY MY DEMAND) is to break her affiliations with anyone. She is far more interesting as a stand alone character. The ongoing series gave a pinch of that solution, but then we had gambit, jubilee and other characters that broke her solitude which (together with the red narration boxes) made her a fancy character. It's only my demand and I may had gone too far with the statement, because of the #21 issue, which I'm planning to read soon.

I want her to be a big player on a center stage X-Men team. Originnally I was hoping for her to end up on the Extinction Team after her series ended, but that was a long shot.

I agree with 2, 3 & 5. The whole point of the Uni is that it's only supposed to be short lived. The Uni gives you the power you need to save the world and moves on. I'd like for her to be seen as more than just a regular Street Level character, but in a kind of Wolverine way that everyone gives her respect.

Also, is she fighting invisible soldiers?

#8 Posted by MyraMyraMyra (296 posts) - - Show Bio

I want her in the same title with Jubilee. I think their friendship in the X-23 series was awesome, and I'd like to see more of that dynamic. I'd definitely read a miniseries starring these two.

Also, I want her out of Avengers Academy and back into an X-Men title. WatX, the adjectiveless X-Men, Astonishing, or Legacy (so that she can hang out with Gambit again), preferably. I do like the fact that she's a loner who doesn't really belong in any team, but the problem with her being a character who travels from title to title and as a guest star is that her character developement isn't going to be consistent.

I'd also like to see her in a live-action adaptation one day. Played by Kaya Scodelario.

xD you dont want her to become more popular? how come?

Well, I think I've gone little too far with this "demand". It's not that I don't like it, but in my opinion, the most interesting characters are usually dark and lonesome. Loneliness is also one of the main aspects of making a good psychological story, because having no one to help, you are all alone with your problems. Although I don't know the whole story, I'm pretty sure the story from the issue #21 is exactly what I'm talking about, so I shouldn't complain. But having back that spy-action vide is still my biggest demand.

#13 Posted by andrea_mendoza1997 (342 posts) - - Show Bio

For her original writers to get back to writing her. If she was amazing when she first started than maybe they have something in store for her. Yes she should be a character who stands alone in her OWN series again. No more co-dependency and psychological traumas. Reminds me of Starfire from DC how after all these years she still hasn't adapted to Earth. Seriously.

#14 Posted by ultimatekey (186 posts) - - Show Bio

I would want for her to be in an X-men movie. Or better yet, how about she was in a Wolverine movie. After The Wolverine movie, I can see a movie based on the Dominant Species arc, featuring Wild Child, Feral and Thornn, Maximum Lobo, and Romulus, Wolf Cub, Wolfsbane, etc. Wolverine found out that a clone has been made from his DNA and X-23 fights him and later they reconcile and they are treated as father and daughter or brother and sister. I can see a big fight finale with Wolverine, X-23, and Dark Wolverine (Daken). After that, she and Wolfsbane is sent to Xavier's school. And then she makes an appearance in the 5th or sixth X-men movie as a main character and goes on a mission with Wolverine and the others. Kind of like X-Force. Also, it would be cool in the movie if they did a quick Wolfsbane origin story just like Rogue in the first X-men movie. Maybe a scene where her mutant powers manifest and her dad started an angry mob and she runs away and gets shot but healed from it and then she finds Maximus Lobo. I hope that Daken is born in The Wolverine movie and grows up and finally meets his father in a possible third Wolverine movie. I can see them having a big all-out fight. I can see him as an anti-hero maybe or neutral. Wolverine offers him a place in the X-men but he declines and leaves. I can see a scene in a future X-men movie where Daken is in his Dark Wolverine attire and one of the X-men confuses him for Wolverine or something. What do you guys think about this idea?

In X-Men: The Last Stand, when the Juggernaut said his infamous line, I can see an infamous line in like the Dominant Species movie. Kyle Gibney (Wild Child): You better watch out, cause Wolverine is gonna shred your a... (gets interrupted, maybe knocked out). Kyle Gibney could be like Sabretooth's henchmen.

1. I'd like her to develop fully into three dimensional character. I loved what Majorie Liu did with her in her series. There was a scene where Laura asked a hotdog vendor if he would add (forgot the name of the topping or condiment) and when she went shopping with Jubilee where she disliked the clothes the vampire picked for her stating, "This is not me." Yet, another scene was when she ambushed a group of pirates and used nonlethal tactics to disable them instead of popping her claws and gutting them. These things may seem pointless but they show her developing into her own woman.

2. Her own solo series would be good until she finds her place in the world. After that I think it would be good for her to try and live a normal life away from the hustle and bustle of heroeing.

3. This is kinda of contradictory, but I think she should be the leader of something. A team, organization, or the like as that would cause her to leave her comfort zone and interact with others and force her to learn about other people in order to function as a competent leader.

#17 Posted by x_29 (2274 posts) - - Show Bio

1. Not to make her a popular character in the marvel universe, but rather a popular character in the X-men universe alone ( not extremely popular though)

2. To reconnect with jubilee and form unlikely friendships( Hope Summers for example)

3. Return to the x-men as a stronger individual both in mind and spirit.

4. Have her pretty solid solo title to return with Liu writing her.

5. No romantic relationships. Now is not the time.

#19 Posted by Stammer6 (22 posts) - - Show Bio

I just want "Laura" to win in her struggle against "X-23". Where she can start to enjoy life and live as a human being (or at least like a casual mutant) and stop being used as a weapon. Though this is her biggest struggle, and as soon as it happens, the character would suddenly have very little meaning. So as much as I cheer Laura on to become normal, I know it's never going to happen.

Otherwise, I'm with the rest of you guys: I'd like her to get more recognition. I'd love for more X-23-focussed comics, more cameos in games and television shows, maybe even play a part in the next Wolverine movie that's supposedly coming out. Heck, if they could do it right, I'd love to see an X-23 movie (but ONLY if they could do it right-- there's a lot they could screw up, and I'd hate to see an X-23 movie where they screwed it up).

X-23 team-up with Ghost Rider ,Spider-man and Ms.Marvel.

or maybe meet Richcochet in Avengers Academy ,or even join the Loners.

#21 Posted by Solarflare32 (393 posts) - - Show Bio

X-23 ultimately needs to find herself and become more than just a female wolverine. She needs to form normal relationships and friendships. To develop her own supporting cast including her own villains one of which i would make hellion due to his attitude and to make a stand on her side in the marvel universe.

I can see her in a future X-men movie with Hellion. They are boyfriend/girlfriend, but after seeing his nasty attitude or him killing someone or putting a teammate in danger and not caring, she breaks up with him. I can see him trying to stop her with his telekinesis and Wolverine intervenes. He throws them to the wall and leaves and become a bad guy. Maybe when he is with the bad team, he has a change of heart after seeing X-23 get hurt. At the end of the movie, he leaves (becoming neutral), but before he leaves, he and X-23 share a final kiss.

Build her quirks, I dunno, like her love for spicy stuff. Discover her own likes and dislikes, preferences at that. Trivial and mundane, but it'll be amusing.

#36 Posted by KingofMadCows (345 posts) - - Show Bio

I want to see her simply experience life, develop her own preferences, feelings, and association.

I would love to see her become a bit selfish. All she has ever done is make sacrifices for her mission or her principles and she has always done it without hesitation or internal struggle because it is simply her default state. It would be interesting to see her develop some selfish desires and experience the conflicts that brings for the first time.

Eventually, I hope to see her lead her own team. Despite the fact that she was trained to work alone, she has the knowledge and experience to lead an effective team.

@KingofMadCows: Selfish? I see where you come from but at the same time I don't. She actually rely's on her friends ( Wolvy jubilee Gambit people at the academy ) for comfort she hates the idea of being alone. But at the same time she could grow tired of giving and giving.Her leading her own team would be awesome.I can see her being a well put together Wolverine.Hell wolverine pretty much leads all his kids but messes up due to his temper.Something Laura doesn't have :)

I like her a lot at Avengers Academy. I hope she stays there.

When they expanded the school Hank brought up the idea of personal mentors, so i'd really like to see Black Widow become her mentor. They both have a lot in common.

When Black Widow asked X-23 to join the Avengers Academy I got the idea that she was going to be mentoring her. Too bad this doesn't seem to be the case. It would have been awesome. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that Black Widow will mentor her.

Have her become a vigilante in New York. I think this would be an interesting direction, and would really allow her to grow a lot more as a character. Have her out of her comfort zone where she has to protect people she's never met and probably won't meet again. Throw in someone like Spidey, Luke Cage, or Iron Fist to teach her the ropes and be a mentor and BAM! Instant character growth(At least in my opinion.)

But her wants aren't really selfish. It is not selfish to want to be safe and away from pain, physical or emotional. They're some of the basic needs of a human being. And even though she occasionally relies on others for comfort, she always puts the needs of others above her own needs. She doesn't even try to persuade others to help her when it comes to personal matters. She only lets others help her when they make that decision themselves.

I'd like to see her learn to want the little things that people want, whether it's material goods, affection, intellectual pursuits, or the simple pleasures of life such as a nice meal or a good movie. I want to see her either try to persuade or maybe even manipulate someone into doing something that she wants. The emphasis being what she wants, not the greater good or the mission or what someone else wants her to do.

Well, X-23 is far more complex than people give her credit for. Unfortunately, the writers have yet to tap into the full potential of the character.

She has a very compartmentalized personality. There is a distinct separation between how she deals with what others want her to do and her own needs and desires. She can be assertive when she needs to accomplish a mission but she is timid when it comes to her own desires and needs.

Similarly, she has, or should have, an excellent understanding of how to emulate, evoke, and manipulate emotions and feelings, as well as how to accurately discern intentions and motivations. After all, she has extensive training in infiltration and espionage, and has participated in many missions where she had to pretend to be a normal girl. Yet, her understanding of feelings and motivations are very impersonal and analytical. Even though she knows how to manipulate people in order to achieve a goal, such as to hide her true nature or to get close to her target, she has little experience with dealing with her own feelings. She doesn't really know how to satisfy or placate her emotional needs and desires. She has trouble even identifying what she feels.

@KingofMadCows: That is true. Didn't she start fooling Logan at one point or something? She has the tools to do this without a doubt. It would be interesting to see this side of her,Although I don't want people to think she's an asshole LOL.

I'd also like to see her broaden her existential search. Considering all the things she has been through and all the things she has seen, she shouldn't just be questioning herself, she should be questioning humanity as a whole. Instead of just searching for her own soul and asking the question of "am I human," she should be searching for humanity's soul and asking, "what is human." After all, it should be abundantly clear to her that people like Zander, Kimura, Stryker, the Facility, the Purifiers, etc., are far more damned than she is. The journey to find her own soul should coincide with the search for humanity's soul.
