    I don't know if it's true, but JDW said the decision was made for Laura's name change before he became the next X editor. But he was definitely in charge during the X-23 series, Disassembled and Fallen Angels and there are some bad decisions there... And I don't think he cares about Laura much, he said he doesn't consider Laura as Logan's daughter and he was surprised that in his x-men popularity poll Laura, as a relatively new character got a high rank.
    And I agree, I can understand the marketing reasons for X-23 as the title of the book, but she shouldn't call herself that.

    I know KYost were surprised that readers began to see them as father/daughter, but this is the first I’d heard about JDE not seeing them that way. Not surprised he didn’t expect her to be so popular considering his views of the NXM generation in general, tho. He really comes across as rooted in the 80s/90s Nostalgia Wank given how hard he doubles down on the O5 still being in their 20s.

    I prefer Laura/Logan as little sister/big brother. The father/daughter angle never worked for me, especially since he didnt raise her and wasnt around when she was younger

    Anyone read DC's Year of the Villain: the Infected: Deathbringer? It's about Donna Troy, but she was out of character - and in my opinion, much more like early Laura! Talks about being created as a weapon.

    There is one guy that made a video that he talked and then zoomed to his mouth and later to his eyes saying " I can't dance when I want to fight". hilarious

    I've already described "Fallen Angels" as a dark book. I still can't believe the art team's taking that LITERALLY.

    Dat Pasylocke II push (literal and writing-wise) though. Heh.

    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!
