    Plus it works with Laura being on the superheroic X-men team while Logan, the OG Wolverine, is still doing the dirty work over in X-Force. I like it.

    The small saving grace is that its written by Duggan and he's got enough writing cred IMB to be at least given the benefit of the doubt that he won't reduce Laura's entire purpose to just "Stab and be looked at by Synch"

    Also, this team is too straight for having another hetero romance.
    Duggan himself said he voted for Tempo, (she’s queer), but the majority fans voted for Polaris

    I don't trust him,, his writing of romance is very one sided and he often reduce people to stereotypes

    So glad that Laura is THE WOLVERINE on the main team and we didnt get Logan. They need to promote and call her Wolverine though bc they were still labeling her as X-23 in her recent appearance

    WHAT history? She existed only to be a prop for his character development, AND THEN SHE DIED AT THE END OF IT. She HAS no history with Synch.
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    Or there are literal centuries(?) of untold content that Synch and she shared to mine.

    She lived it. She just doesn't remember doing it.

    No, she didn't live it. The Laura who lived it DIED before being backed up. This Laura never went into the vault. This Laura never hooked up with Sync.

    Kind of both yes and no. The VaultLaura lived through it, but she died without having her memories backed up. We currently have before-vault Laura, so for her it never happened.
    It's more than "she just doesn't remember", those memories don't exist, and no one can restore them for her.

    Yes! It's amazing that she's the Wolverine of a team. I didn't like how in 19 she was referred to as Wolverine, but on characters page as "X-23".

    I hope she gets to shine on this new team, can't wait for the first issue.

    Haha, not all of Laura fans are stabby stabby when it comes to replies
    I didn't enjoy Synch/Wolverine plot, but only cause for years now I only see her as gay. But I also get it why people might like the pairing, so to each their own

    No, by any metric, she's a literal different person then who Synch knew; transmigration or not (and I'm still calling a spade a spade until the text explicitly says otherwise.), 280 years makes for a functionally different person.
    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!
