Added DiffLines:

* FamilyEyeResemblance: Played with:
** Laura's eyes were made green to establish her StrongFamilyResemblance to her creator/mother, Sarah Kinney, even though Laura doesn't actually possess any of Sarah's genetic material.
** In ''{{Generations|MarvelComics}}'' #3 Logan remarks that Laura has his mother's eyes. However as noted above, Laura's eyes are green, while Elizabeth Howlett's are blue, making it something ''in'' Laura's eyes that reminds him of his mother, rather than their appearance.[[note]]Never mind that at the time the story is set, Logan wouldn't have had memory of his mother in the first place.[[/note]]

* PhotographicMemory: O5 Cyclops remarks that she has one in the second volume of ''All-New X-Men'', and she certainly demonstrates excellent memory and recall.

* AbortedArc: Because of the Liu series' cancellation, there were several plot threads that have since been abandoned and not been revisited in other series. In particular the Hooded Woman from the Madripoor and Paris arcs and Laura's destiny as heir to the Enigma Force.



** When Hellverine is poking around Laura's mind during "The Killing Dream" arc of the Liu series, he runs across Gamesmaster, who has been inhabiting her consciousness since her one-shot. Gamesmaster tried to drive him out but was defeated, and Hellverine presents him to Laura as a gift.

** Although downplayed more recently, with her civilian style becoming a bit more casual and modest, her wearing the classic Gold and Blue spandex as Wolverine is [[Rule63 its own brand of fanservice for some]]. That the costume is skin-tight still leads to more conventional MaleGaze moments (including quite infamously in a clear shot of her backside in the ''Monsters Unleashed'' tie-in to ''All-New X-Men'', and on the cover to the final issue of ''Comicbook/InhumansVsXMen'').
