X-23 Respect Thread
- Survived an incredibly taxing childhood that many would not (being raised as a weapon, and abused).
- Was part of the team that defeated Nimrod (sent him into another place in the time stream, effectively defeating him)
- Killed (or at least mortally wounded) Lady Deathstrike. That's not easily done.
- Killed the Leper Queen (not too difficult as she was human, but usually well armed/protected so difficult for another mutant to do).
There's more but that's off the top of my head (I'd add defeating the Hulk, but I do not own that arc so cannot confirm that the X-men accomplished this). I also don't have the spider-man or Unipower team-up, sorry =(
fixed. Lady Deathstrike showed up immediately after in the Sisterhood arc.
- defeat Lady Deathstrike using skill to skill, and rather handily.
"concur. after seeing that Xaviers life was already a living hell, he decided it was a better punishment
Well they didn't really defeat WW Hulk, he left after he saw the graves of the X-Men.
to allow him to live.
- after walking off a heavy beating from Bishop, Stryfe and his armies, resisted being pulled back through time and the damage it was causing her temporarily, and still had it in her to make a kill shot on the Leper Queen when arriving in the past, a destination that she plotted perfectly.
- trained to be able to defeat Wolverine by being programmed every battle and training scenario
he has via the Weapon X helmet, has held her own against both Wolverine as well as Daken toe-to-toe.
- was fully functional without one arm, no problemo. who needs two really?
I still count Lady Deathstrike, as she couldn't fight Laura any more in that battle. I have read the arc in which she appears again; that's why I said 'at least mortally wounded'. It is possible that Deathstrike was near death/dead for a little while, but as she possesses a healing factor, she recovered.
Yes, she is trained to be able to defeat Wolverine. She almost did so in the fight they had in X-23: Target X, but they resolved their conflict before fighting to the death (and Wolverine was holding back). It's possible that she could fully defeat him, but unknown since he was 'letting her' and not actually fighting back.
Also, fighting sans arm was an accomplishment: she defeated many facility soldiers with combat skills, and Kimura using wits and strategy.
sorry i dont follow what you mean "by count" ? i do as well, just corrected you on how it went down.
regardless of your evidence, Lady Deathstrike didnt die, you know? she has to actually die to die, its kind of simple. what is mortal wounding to a Weapon X anyways? Wolverine has been reduced to a skeleton and a brain. i would want to call that a mortal wound, but since he survived it, and a mortal wound is something one cannot by definition, well lets just say thats hyperbole on Deathstrikes part you know?
outskilling an opponent that Wolverine and Steve Rogers have major problems with is feat enough.
mortal wound can be achieved by simply slashing someone.
but unknown since he was 'letting her' and not actually fighting back
i think the amount he was letting her was overeggerated by certain Wolverine fans to be honest.
ive read Target X over so many times it wasnt funny. if he was letting her, he would look like Lady
Deathstrike. he was pulling his punches a bit, but then again so was she (why i dont know, either
wouldve recovered). on panel statement in the same series that she is able to keep up with him
is proof enough, speculations aside arent really worthwhile to me. I can see whereas he would have advantages, but i can say the same for her, where they to go all out. Marrow ran him pretty hard in there all out match.
Okay, this one may be a little hard to understand if you didn't read the comic. Weapon X, or whatever they're calling themselves, are having X-23 fight a cyborg bear and comparing her to old footage of Wolverine doing the same thing. They want her to do it exactly the same as he did. Let's watch:
DAAAAANNNNNG. I guess Wolvie's only the second best there is at what he does.
Ha, well in his defense I haven't actually ever heard him say what it is that he's best at. Maybe he's referring to drinking beer or getting his girlfriends killed or something.
" @Jotham: thats it right there man. i try telling people but Wolverine hardcores swear im full of it. "

yeah. in Marvel Team-Up her and Gravity hooked up.
the timeline got altered though so the normal X-23 and Gravity are unaware
of each other. those two versions grew old together in the 2099 future,
though that timeline was recently retconned in Timestorm 2099 so the L.O.L.
probably doesnt exist anymore either.
my last few, at least for awhile
the rather lackluster fights against the Dark X-Men from Exodus
thanks Fraction, thanks Bendis ...
X-23 Vs Daken, well, sort of (sadly this isnt from the issue that had X-23 and Daken fighting
on the cover, as they never did in that issue)
X-23 in an alternate reality version of the Avengers
Petition for a x-23 themed quest!
