    It's only one thread on a single forum. Hardly an even remotely accurate cross section of the readership and their opinions.

    Context is king.

    X-23's most basic surface level characteristic that any idiot should grasp: Stoicism.
    I don't demand that her every minor appearance be a nuance in-depth examination of her character, but is it to much to ask she be written in Archetype?! This is storytelling 101! If you want people to stay invested in a character, you need to, at the bare minimum, write them such a way that they can plausibly be believed to be the same character!

    Not necessarily. With Gabby, they have a built in excuse if they want to make her older with the fact that she was rapidly aged to her current age. Thus if they wanted her older, they could have her age accelerate until a certain age before aging normally.

    At least according to Taylor's Twitter that's exactly what happened: Gabby and the other Sisters were all rapid-aged, otherwise the eldest like Zelda would have had to be born at about the same time as Laura herself.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    Gabby is a tremendous breath of fresh air and provides a wonderful, contrasting take on the Wolverine concept. I love her dynamics with Laura and Daken, and I'm sure she'll wonderfully charming when she's eventually paired with Logan.

    I just hope they stick with Honey Badger over Scout. That's the one change in the latest series that just seems tremendously unneeded and short sighted. Of course her codename is Honeybadger. It fits her like a glove with claw slits.

    The "Who?" answer is indifference to the character.

    I kinda like "Scout" better; it rolls of the tongue better and she did pick it herself (I don't think there was anything wrong with the way her other one was picked, but there it is). Besides, as pointed out in the issue itself, Laura has gone through multiple codenames, so it happens. Besides, I kinda think Gabby was more established under her real name, allowing a codename to be more flexible, unlike how Spidey and Batman will always be Spidey and Batman.
