If you watched the 2017 Logan movie based on the Marvel Comics Wolverine character, you were introduced to a young Laura Kinney. She is one of the Weapon X test subjects named X-23.
The Weapon X program wanted to clone Logan, but all attempts were unsuccessful due to a damaged Y chromosome. The decision is made to replicate the X chromosome and produce a female clone. There were 22 failures at producing a viable sample to combine with an embryo. The 23rd time was a success.
Laura was raised in captivity and groomed to be a ruthless and skilled killing machine. She has a heightened healing factor like Wolverine, but she only has two retractable claws in her hands. She does however, have a retractable toe spike in each foot. Her claws and toe spikes have been coated with adamantium, but she escaped before they were able to fuse the metal to her skeleton.
Laura/X-23 is highly trained in the use of long range weapons and explosives. She is a formidable hand-to-hand combatant with intensive training in numerous armed and unarmed martial arts techniques. Laura is also highly educated and so far has displayed fluency in French and Japanese. Her intellect has been described as being “off the charts”.
The X-23 Premium Format Figure stands 25” tall, as Laura Kinney leaps into the fray on top of a severed Sentinel hand base while a mechanical arm reaches up to grab her. With a quick SNIKT, she’s ready to tear up her enemies with dual metal knuckle claws and her signature toe claw exposed.
The polyresin X-23 Premium Format Figure wears a sculpted costume with yellow and dark blue paneling detailed to mimic realistic fabric-like textures. Her costume also features matching gloves, a black belt with a red and gold “X” buckle, and boots detailed with “X” treads.
