X-23 is much more then just a Wolverine clone...in fact she seems to have the potential to be far superior to her predecessor...of course this is assuming she isn't already.
At the age of Eleven X-23 manages to undergoe the same training session as Wolverine during his Weapon X days. The session itself involves close ranged combat with two Wolves followed by an encounter with a Bear.
X-23 performs within 0.09% synchronicity with the data accumulated from her predecessors run. However in this session she manages to improvise outperforming Weapon X by a whole 3 minutes 24 seconds.
One things for sure X-23 is an extremely skilled individual for her age. This feat demonstrates her phenomenal speed, agility, accuracy, heightened reflexes and a bit of combat awareness as well.
X-23 is busy trying to outrun a group of Weapon X Soldiers. They try and cut her off by dismounting a helicopter a few feat in front of her. She manages to silence them permanently before they even get the chance to aim and fire.
She also manages to take out the pilot of the Weapon X helicopter via a head shot using one of the Weapon X Guns.(Granted the gun does have a scope)
Afterwards she does battle with Kimura(Possibly her very own "Sabertooth" rival). Kimura seems superior in every possible way. However X-23 manages to use the environment to her own advantage. She causes an avalanche using an object as simple as a handgun trapping both her and Kimura in the vast amounts of snow. Both survive.
But X-23 manages to allude Weapon X's capture.
Despite her electricity weakness and being shocked with sufficient electricity to overload Nimrod's device - Mercury has already basically recovered. They discover Rockslide wasn't killed despite being reduced to dust. Hellion uses some fine control TK to help him reconstitute himself. (please log in to view the image)(please log in to view the image) X-23 is severely injured and taken back to the mansion by Hellion for healing - for scans see above.
Not only is she skilled but she is a cunning, and intelligent individual. In the following scans X-23 demonstrates precision, heightened senses, her cunning nature by manipulating Captain America into aiding her in her grand escape, her well versed knowledge in the area of human physiology and her fluency in linguistics.
Note*- "Each victim was cut and/or stabbed in either the brain stem, jugular or aorta with incredible precision."
"Twenty-seven innocent people. Twelve of them women, and two boys ages thirteen and fifteen."
Showing that X-23 is an emotionally detached skilled killer. Also note how Captain America is coaxed into practically opening the door to her escape.
X-23's heightened senses are literally off the charts. Here she is able to locate the whereabouts of her Cousins school by using the very scent of her cousin. She also shows off her vast knowledge in Human Physiology and Linguistics. And also happens to have a very good memory regurgitating the Principals speech back at her word for word.
That is very misleading. It took Wolverine 3 minutes and 21 seconds to track the bear through the forest and kill him... and yet Laura out preformed him 3 minutes and 24 seconds? That doesn't even make sense. It didn't even take Wolverine that long to complete the exercise... and he actually had to hunt the animals down and kill them, unlike Laura. And Wolverine one shot his bear with out getting hit, where as Laura got smacked around like a rag doll... and Wolverine fought five wolves... where as Laura only fought two (and she didn't even kill one of them!). These scientist must have been desperate to keep their funding because they were lying through their teeth.
Kyle and Yost, go reread your Barry Windsor-Smith Weapon X TBP!
Good threat so far though.
