* X-23's first appearance in WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution. She's put through TrainingFromHell by HYDRA, escapes, breaks into SHIELD, then takes out every single member of the X Men except for Logan, and he was clearly outmatched and had to convince her that he was a victim the same as she was.
** Her second appearance had her trying to fight off Logan who was trying to protect her from Omega Red and Deadshot who were hired by HYDRA to capture her. She makes no bones this is so he won't be a target and after they are cornered and captured X-23 reveals it was her plan all along, to get inside HYDRA so she could kill them all, and make it look like she died in the attack so no one else would come after her. She succeeds, evading even ComicBook/NickFury who was after her.
* In ''The Killing Dream'', Claudine Renko (Miss Sinister) attempts to pull a GrandTheftMe on her since she thinks Laura's HealingFactor will prevent [[spoiler: Mr. Sinister from gaining control of her body, and using it to return from a previous death. The plan backfires and ''Sinister himself'' transfers his consciousness into Laura's body instead. And then Laura kicks ''him'' out.]]

The plan backfires and ''Sinister himself'' transfers his consciousness into Laura's body instead. And then Laura kicks ''him'' out.]]



* The [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown ass-kicking]] Laura delivers to Rice at the end of ''Innocence Lost'' is not only incredibly brutal, but ''incredibly'' satisfying to see as well. Look at the time on her mission clock when she begins, and again when she's done. She's pounding on him for '''''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis ten. Fucking. Minutes]]'''''. Laura could ''easily'' have killed him within less than a second, but ''she put away her claws'' so she could go to work on him ''with her bare hands''. She's giving him back the thirteen years of abuse she suffered at his hands in the space of less than ''thirteen minutes'', and he deserved every second of it.



* During ''ComicBook/WorldWarHulk'', Laura was one of the ''only'' people who managed to ''slow down Hulk'' in direct combat. She allowed him to grab her, bringing her close enough that she could put her foot claws into play, [[EyeScream putting out his eyes]] and actually inconveniencing him. When Logan tried the same trick later, it only worked because ''Hulk let him''.



* And speaking of BigDamnHeroes moments, Laura playing TheCavalry during Stryker's attack on the school in ''New X-Men''. The adults present are quickly rendered ineffective, and except for Dust, the kids are only able to put up a token defense at best. Then Laura arrives and ''[[CurbStompBattle utterly destroys]]'' the Purifiers attacking the school. ''Single-handed.''
** She takes part in yet another during ''Messiah Complex'': Laura is a part of the X-Force team who arrive to take on Lady Deathstrike and the Reavers after they previously ambushed Cable. Laura is ''very'' angry, and makes ''very'' [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge short work of Deathstrike]] for [[ViolentlyProtectiveGirlfriend nearly killing Hellion]].
** And ''again'' against the Future Brotherhood in ''ComicBook/AllNewXMen''. While she had some help from Jean masking her from Xavier, Jr., Laura's surprise attack turns the tide of the fight by both severely wounding Xavier [[spoiler: and helping to break his hold over the [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Brotherhood]]]].
* Laura standing up to a Phoenix-possessed Emma Frost and ''attacking her'' when she tries to destroy Juston's Sentinel in the ''Comicbook/AvengersAcademy'' tie-in to ''Comicbook/AvengersVsXMen''.
** For that matter, the fact that Laura (and the other kids) are pretty much the collective OnlySaneMan of ''[=AvX=]'', and that Laura personally is the one that convinced the other kids that the captive younger X-Men deserve the freedom to choose their part for themselves.
* A double-whammy in ''Wolverines''#15:
** [[spoiler: Although the duel between Daken and Siphon is [[ItsPersonal personal]], she utterly takes control of the conflict. She directs Comicbook/{{Blade}} in disabling Siphon and forcing him to back down from killing him, ''and'' talks Daken down from doing so by pointing out killing Siphon would never be enough for him. And all the while empathizing with Siphon when she realizes that, like her, Siphon was ''made'' a killer.]]
** And then at the end of the issue [[spoiler: she reveals to Mystique that she knows how to identify her, and ''won't tell her how she did it'' and will leave her guessing. And then tells her she's not just going to play along with Mystique's game and be used.]]

* Kiden Nixon ''threatening Wolverine'' during the X-23 one-shot, when she thinks that Laura has returned to hooking and he's her pimp. Logan takes an instant liking to her.
* [[http://40.media.tumblr.com/60dec0a29b261e19be383623b4e1bd29/tumblr_nxclvcCkZx1tob7k5o2_1280.jpg This]] page from ''All-New Wolverine'' #1.
-->'''Laura''': I want them to see the Wolverine coming!
** Also, Laura and Warren perform a mid-air variation on the FastballSpecial, as he delivers her onto an RQ-1 Predator drone. ''In-flight!''
* Laura vs. Taskmaster. It starts out as a CurbStompBattle, with Tasky managing to deflect everything she throws at him while he monologues about how fighting him is pointless. Unfortunately for ''him'' he either disregarded, forgot about, or just didn't ''know'' about her foot claws. He catches one of her feet, and she promptly ''snikts'' his hand before turning the fight around and subduing him.
** The car chase that follows. ''Especially'' the part where Laura launches herself into Mooney's pursuing Humvee and wrecking it to stop him. ''And'' warning him off against chasing them any further.
--->'''Laura''': Captain Mooney. If Alchemax Genetics comes after them again, I won't hold back. I've already beaten you unconscious once today, and now I'm leaving you in the wreckage of a car crash, alone and bleeding. That's me holding back.
** One for Tom Taylor in ''All-New Wolverine'' #4, with one line of dialogue addressing every concern fans had about Laura taking up the Wolverine name:
--> '''Laura''': All I know is, while I'm wearing this, he isn't gone. And neither am I. I'm Laura Kinney. I'm X-23. ''And'' I'm Wolverine.
* Her takedown of Alchemax Genetics. Not only for how she tricked them into thinking that she was Bellona's corpse, but also for how she appeals to the scientists sense of morality, getting them to upload incriminating evidence on Alchemax's activities to S.H.I.E.L.D. (it helps she slightly threatened them by making a show of [[TheNoseKnows acquiring their scent]] and telling them she can now track them ''anywhere'' should they try to hide).
