As you may or may not know/care, I don’t like Wolverine too much. He was kind of cool back in that old 90’s cartoon, and he’s had some cool moments in comicdom, but he suffers from being woefully overused. He’s got about three solo titles. Mini series. Is simultaneously part of two X-Men teams and the Avengers. Constantly guest stars in other books…it just gets out of hand. Top that off with the fact that he really doesn’t change much as a character, and he gets old real quick.
But if there’s one thing I could hate more than Wolverine, it’s a clone of Wolverine.
A FEMALE CLONE. Argh.
Much as I like Marvel, they don’t learn too well. Spider-Man had a clone, once, and it led to one of the most lamentable series in their entire history, damn near destroyed there #1 cash cow. You think they’d learn to stay away from clones.
But apparently not, and X-23 is a lot like her ‘daddy’. She used to be an assassin for the government, got away. Secret Weapon Program, all that stuff. Spent some time as a pedophile prostitute…which is kind of…not like Wolverine, but give it time. Wound up with the X-Men, yadda yadda yadda. She growls just like Wolverine, broods like him; the only big difference is that, as a fellow comic enthusiast put it, she’s ‘WOLVERINE WITH BEWBS’.
Yeah. Nice mental image.
But how could you make such a character even lamer than that? For that matter, why does X-23 only have four claws? Where’s the other two? Simple.
Yes, footclaws. Whenever you want to make something dumb even dumber, give it footclaws. Gaurenteed screw up.

I would actually bet big money that I hate Wolvy much more than you.
But then, my capacity for hate is so much more.... vast.

Well...you know, I can't really deny that.

Instead of all this clone nonesense, why not just give Wolverine a real son or daughter? A little mini-Wolvy wreaking havoc on the Marvel villains would be awesome.

Why does she appear to be squatting as if to angrily take a dump?

That picture is demonstrating what happens if she's bending down to tie her shoes and you tell her that while she's down there, she should be doing some other things.

...I never liked Marvel to begin with, and this just adds to my hate.

As ridiculous as Marvel is, DC is much worse. At least Marvel didn't invent such villains like the Sportsmaster.
