    But Laura hasn't really questioned hee existence in a while. She learned that she had a soul, she had friends who loved her, and she had blood relatives who love her.

    She's a functional person who can have a life outside of the X-Men, something even Logan can't really claim.

    If anything, I think this whole thing will make her question her loyalty to the X-Men, though I don't think it will happen right away. I think she's going to try and be happy and accept what's happening, but then something will happen that will make her realize how wrong everything is.

    How? They're making clones, then body snatching them, to provide the illusion of immortality. This should be horrifying for a clone.
    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!

    Seriously, this isn't cheating death and unlike some other resurrection attempts in Apiderman and elsewhere, there is no mention of a soul.

    If anything, this reminds me of Loki's method of reincarnation. Please note that each resurrected Loki ia technically a different person feom the one before and that the "back-up personality" is changed. And this is happening with a freaking, so how does old Chuck think he isn't going to mess up?

    Funny, for me now, things don't seem right without the shadow. Takes all types, I guess.

    Yeah, have to second this. Not counting the fact that she was almost a victim of this process herself before, she's currently been shown to be spending her main superhero career scuttling operations like this.

    Hill said it will, and there's a good chance it's the academy x kids will appear, and Magneto will be playing a role

    I think Laura would try and be OK with this, since everyone else is. It just wouldn't stay that way.

    Recall it being reported that Magnento will be in it, but why do we think Academy X will appear?

    Do you think Fallen Angels will help flesh out Kwannon's character so people will accept her as the new Psylocke?

    I feel like some people are against it, mainly because they think she's only there to be a sex object replacement or something.

    Said Laura's relations ship with her friends(mainly new xmen) would be brought up, and a few of them would fit the book.

    Fleshing out Kwannon is basically what Bryan Edward Hill said one of his primary goals was.

    Think it'll be enough to get people to accept her as Psylocke?

    Depends on the reason why they don't want to accept her; some people were going on about how Psylocke was Betsy's true name as revealed by Spiral, therefore it shouldn't be used by Kwannon... I have no idea as to the validity of that claim.

    Though the iconoclasm of this series might give it a boost.

    She's beautiful on those covers and while she does have the classic sexy ninja outfit, her actual body type isn't being drawn to be too sexy.
