Disclaimer: the title is obviously loaded, as it presumes that you do like her. If you don't, that's fine, but this conversation isn't the place for saying so. Now, if you talk about things you like about her but also happen to mention things you don't like, that's fine, so long as it doesn't dovetail into a tangential off-topic discussion. Posts that simply discuss not liking her will be considered inane and immature trolling. I won't acknowledge them and I encourage everyone else to proceed likewise ^_^
Now, then. I have read through the entire Kyle/Yost X-Force run, X-23: Innocence Lost, X-23: Target X, and Liu's 21-issue series (also called X-23). I understand that hardly covers all her appearances (including her first one -- my copy of NYX is already on its way), but it covers enough, and origins, and that's established her as my favorite Marvel character (if not comics character in general, at least for the time being). But given that she has existed for quite a while now, and has been represented by a variety of different writers, we've seen many different facets of who X-23 is. Some might even argue there are several different X-23s altogether, as one writer "destroys" her and another "finally makes me care about her," and so on.
So, what do you like about Laura Kinney? What sets her apart in your mind from all the other healing factor characters (with or sans blades)? I have my own reasons, but before I share them I thought it'd be cool to hear from some of you since it's pretty clear there are some big fans but probably not all for the same reason.
