I... I am not a weapon!

X-23

X-23, real name Laura Kinney is a character from the X-Men series by Marvel. She is a clone of Wolverine, having the same powers and fighting aptitude as part of an attempt to recreate the Weapon X experiment.

X-23 is a playable character in Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Profile

Appearance

Abilities

  • As a clone of Wolverine, has his powers such as a regenerative healing factor and animal senses.
  • Adamantium claws, just like Wolverine, except she has two on each hand and one on each foot.
  • Since she escaped before her full adamantium bonding process began, only her claws are coated with metal and as a result, at times, her regenerative healing factor is faster than Wolverine's (as adamantium generates toxins in his body that slow it down).

Gameplay

X-23's gameplay is very similar to Wolverine's, with all of her special attacks are loosely based on Wolverine's special attacks, and one hyper combo based on Wolverine's level 3 hyper. She lacks some of his attack power, but compensates that with her superior agility and mobility. Her rushing specials allows to keep opponents off balance with lightning-fast and almost unpredictable attacks. Overall, her playstyle in particular invokes an assassin theme in stark contrast to Wolverine's equally brutal, albeit less subtle berserker fighting style.
