I dunno about you guys, but future Reptil is sorta hinting that Mettle and Laura are supposed to have a little something…. if he didn’t intervene. Possibly on Hazmat’s request.

"Watch out Hazmat looks like you've got competition."

"Just like that, everything changes."

Hmmm.... Changes what, I wonder?

But didnt alternate reality/future Reptil go there to make SURE that the future (?) belonged to THEM? Why the animosity to X-23? Surely, she isnt part of the "THEM" he mentioned. Maybe nothing reciprocal on her part, maybe just Mettle feeling things. After all, he's currently looking for a brother-in-blood, he used to have it with Veil remember? They even bonded. But she's gone now. So the Yoda of Killers has reassured him, eased his mind about something disturbing.

"We may converse anytime you wish." Surely, Mettle would have exercised that offer. And I think they would talk and until a bond is formed. Resulting to a rather jealous Hazmat.

(O_O ) You dump Julian for dat guy?

He’s nice and all… But… Meh. Helix all the way.

(O_O ) anyone who doesnt have skin is not fit for Laura.

He wasn't hinting at a future thing between them. He's sowing seeds of discord among them for whatever plot development is currently going on with their future selves. He says as much right after he drops the line to Hazmat.

wouldn't support their relationship if they get one it will be a bad decision if they choose to do it

@rokusan23:Yeah, I'd rather like Santo/Cess, though Rockslide may be a pain in the butt sometimes... "Let's go and beat up those Young Avengers! Like, for no reason! That'd be awesome!". Well, in NXM v2 it seemed like they cared about each other (maybe not in a romantic way... who knows), anyways.

Well, for me all the X-23/Mettle thing should be nothing more than friendship. Considering the fact I'm a huge HeliX fan, anyone who stands between Jules and Laura must have a serious death wish. Just imagine the picture: a comic fan kills a comic character... I might need some rest for my brains...

(O_O ) do people think I support this ship?!

NO >:O I'm a gargantuan Helix fan!

I do not, or will ever, even in the state where my life is endangered that I shall willfully subject to this insipid blasphemy.

(O_O ) anyone who doesnt have skin is not fit for Laura. I'm just saying that... as evidenced above, the current writer of this series is... hinting something. And that something is something I am not graciously happy about.

:/ My poor frail heart caved in after X-23 #19... (T^T ) Liu, you devious narwhal.

Not exactly sure what's causing the scared of a possible relationship here, she was just having a conversation. (which seemed a little out of character considering what she's been through.)

Agreed. If anything I believe that Laura would have been a valuable voice to Mettle and perhaps turn him from whatever path that he's being steered toward.

After all Reptil wants to keep his future and if the bodies that they inhabited are any clue... Mettle says it feels like he was used to going for the kill. Which would mean that he perhaps becomes much more angry and aggressive in Reptil's future and if Laura had managed to soothe his misgivings he very well might not have become the man that Reptil needs him to be.

So personally I don't think it was relationship related at all, at least not in that way, if anything it's about having things happen the way they're "supposed to" which is why he checked in on Striker's conversation to make sure things went "right". If his future's gonna happen, it's gonna need everyone to make certain choices.

Except Julian was kinda of a Jerk, while Mettle is a legit nice guy.

Why go for the jerk?

For that matter, Laura is Nicer than Hazmat.

#25 Edited by VenomMelendez (407 posts) - - Show Bio

@luckydomino1:

Why not? He's far nicer than Hellion who has always been a jerk to Laura, especially in his appearance in X-23's book.

@EnSabahNurX:

Why not? He'd be a better boyfriend than Hellion, who has been a jerk to her.

#26 Posted by Clue_ (454 posts) - - Show Bio

Because he's a red skeleton thing and no one wants to see Laura with him because he's not as pretty as Hellion, maybe.

That's not the reasoning behind it at all (I'm not even overly fond of the Hellion/X-23 ship anymore).

I agree. To be honest I think Mettle makes Hazmat better, both as a person and as a character.

Yeah because Liu ignored the several years on cannon in which Hellion has been nothing but concerned for her. I mean its like him flying her across country to have Elixir heal her never happened! Yes Hellion can be a bit of a jerk/ass, but when you've had all the crap that's happened to him happen to you? Well try not to come out a bit bitter, and angry.

As for the whole Mettle/Laura thing? If something comes out it Marvel needs to hire new editors. Erase years of cannon with the shittiest break-up chapter and then have her with a guy she barely met? Would be extremely disappointing.

#41 Posted by Skaddix (3106 posts) - - Show Bio

I think Spidey has the shittiest breakup actually. I liked Hellion better with Wind Dancer she brought out some positive traits. X-23/Hellion was always dumb. I am glad its over although the execution was not great.

To be honest, if they have chemistry, andif its genuine and looks like it can work, why not.

Maybe way down the road but its too soon and laura isn't emotionally able to be with someone yet

She should be with someone like how gambit was in her series(but not gambit)

#44 Edited by Skaddix (3106 posts) - - Show Bio

Well certainly X-23 has more in common with the core Academy members then she does Hellion. Most of the core academy got tortured which X-23 can relate too. Some have even notched a few kills.

So Hellion hasn't killed anyone then, and has never experienced pain or illness caused by captors or enemies. Just so we're totally clear on this.

Also, I'm pretty sure his entire run since K & Y (and even under them) qualifies as a form of torture (writer-dunking?) but that's beside the point.

@enshabahnurx True, later on in the series we will see, or perhaps mettle will serve as another brother figure.
