Why does everybody love her ?

#1 Posted by ComicCrazy (1537 posts) - - Show Bio

I noticed a long time that x-23 had become a very loved and recognised character and I don't mind her myself but I just couldn't help but ask, why does everybody else like her so much ?

@ComicCrazy: Think of Wolverine, now think of one you can have sex with without being homosexual. Lo and Behold, the appeal of Laura Kinney.

because the writers have been careful to work hard on her character, starting back with the various miniseries (Target X was great), through X-Force and large showings in everything inbetween especially major events, and then some. as well her fight with Deathstrike, id say the end of Messiah War pretty much solidified respect in peoples eyes. why.

Exactly.

But Kyle & Yost don't write her as Wolverine with breasts.  They write her as someone who is aware of the deadly and loveless upbringing, and who doesn't know how to express herself as a normal kid her age would do.  Just because she has claws, doesn't mean she's the same as Wolverine.

I for one don't like her one bit for the most part she,s just a rip  and that dumb ass toe claw infuriates me I mean seriously dose it take a corner around the ankle or dose her foot not bend.

I believe it is stored in her shin. Every time she pops the claw (or most times when drawn correctly), she flexes her foot so the ankle angle is almost straight. It passes through her ankle into her foot and emerges between her toes.

I think the fact that she has a history and we know what it is does make a difference.  We seem to be passed the need for mysterious characters without any background (ala Wolverine, Rogue, Gambit, Cable, etc) and the trend now is to establish the background early on to show the tragic history of a character.
 
It also leaves little room for future writers to come along and try to make their mark by creating an F-ed up history.  It's only her future adventures they can screw up (by writing her like Wolverine).

confirmation of sick awesomeness...

after fighting to the near death alongside her comrades against Stryfe, his armies and Bishop, 
and now being torn apart from the inside out by time-distortion...

I agree. Very interesting character indeed and pretty dark one I think.

She rocks, she's an enigma.
 
And in addition she has a soul which most people didn't think of.
 
I hope she survives.

Read both of her mini-series, they're great and what made me love her.

#20 Posted by robbiesol (474 posts) - - Show Bio

Simply put she's badass. 
 
And she isn't overplayed and overrated like Logan. 
 
Prettier too.

She's an interesting character.

X-23 Is one of most favourite comicbook favourite characters. She is hot, intelligent and sadistic. How can anybody not like her.

Basically.....that's why I always feel creepy about looking at Supergirl art haha.

She's amazing. Simply put, I fell in love with her as a character due to her background. How she was created, how she had grown. Her two-series starters were pretty decent, and got me heavily interested in her further yet. I have a bust of her in her fanged, orange and black jumpsuit. I have every comic she's been in so far, except for a couple of the recent ones. She's one of my favorites, notably because I dislike the overrated Wolverine.
