* CivvieSpandex: Although Laura has had a few more traditional costumes (a variation of Wolverine's Shi'ar "wild" suit, her New X-Men, X-Force, and All-New X-Men uniforms, and now the Wolverine costume), she's spent almost as much time in civvies as she has in an actual costume: She was introduced in a {{Stripperific}} coat, corset/tank top, miniskirt, and fishnets ensemble (justified as she was a prostitute at the time), she actually spent more time in ''New X-Men'' wearing PaintedOnPants and a sports bra than in her actual uniform, wore a similar outfit for the duration of ''Avengers Academy'', and only wore her then-current X-Force uniform twice during the Liu series.

** It becomes almost literal in the costume Mike Choi designed for Volume II, as he based it heavily on athletic wear after surveying women in their late-teens and early-20s about what they would wear as a superhero.

* StatusQuoIsGod: Solicitations for issues 1 and 2 indicate Laura will be "returning to her roots" as X-23. Whether she is going to be readopting her Facility designation after giving up the cowl, or if it simply means that Laura will be more willing to kill is still unknown.

* BoomHeadshot: ''Target X'': Laura pulls this off on a helicopter pilot in flight. ''From the ground.''

to:

* BoomHeadshot: ''Target X'': Laura pulls this off on a helicopter pilot in flight. ''From the ground.''''
* CatipultNightmare: Megan awakens from a nightmare/flashback of her kidnapper with this trope.
* CassandraTruth: Because Sarah covered up her kidnapping in ''Innocence Lost'', no one believed Megan's story about him, or of her rescuer (Laura herself). This is a substantial part of what led to her troubles with her mother and in school, as they all thought she was simply making it up.



* DysfunctionJunction: This is the state of Megan and Debbie when Laura first arrives at their house. Megan is troubled and still suffering severed PTSD over the trauma of her kidnapping, Debbie is struggling to help her as best she can, and her boyfriend, Desmond, is generally apathetic.



* FastRoping: The first Facility troops to respond to Laura's escape are delivered in this method by helicopter in the woods outside the bunker.



* HellishCopter: Laura shoots down a helicopter gunship pursuing her through the woods outside the Facility's bunker...by capping the pilot ''from the ground'' with a perfect [[BoomHeadshot headshot]].



* ItsRainingMen: The Facility attempts to cut off Laura's escape by FastRoping soldiers into the woods from a helicopter gunship.
* MeaningfulRename: At one point Captain America asks Laura during her interrogation if she is X-23. She tells him no. Daredevil, who Steve brought in to act as a LivingLieDetector, ascertains she's telling the truth. It's a very subtle moment, but one which establishes Laura has decided that she truly is ''Laura Kinney'', not X-23.



* MythologyGag:
** A student who harasses Megan in the hallway has a shirt which reads ''Comicbook/{{NYX}}''.
** Laura and Megan attend a Comicbook/{{Dazzler}} concert during their day out after getting suspended.



* PinnedToTheWall: Kimura pins Laura to a ''tree'' with a crossbow bolt during her escape.
* RetCon: In ''Uncanny X-Men'', Laura first meets Logan when her killing of some men who attacked a woman she was protecting draws the X-Men's attention. He, Nightcrawler, and Rachel track her to a restaurant, and it's implied Logan had never even heard of her before then. However ''Target X'' reveals that Sarah ''sent Logan a copy of her letter'' in case something happened to her, and that they first meet alone when she tries to kill him. ''[[Comicbook/NewXMenAcademyX|New X-Men]]'' further refines the story by suggesting their encounter in ''Uncanny'' was a show for the others.

* RainOfBlood: This is what tips Cap off that he let Johnson's killer escape: As he's consulting with a grunt on the killings he notices blood dribbling from between the rear doors of the ambulance where he ''just'' left the only "survivor" of the attack. He opens the door to reveal the inside of the ambulance covered in blood, and the two EMTs dead inside.
* RoomFullOfCrazy: Megan's room is plastered with pictures she drew of her kidnapper, revealing just how deeply affected she is by the trauma. There's also a few of Laura, as well.


Added DiffLines:

* SpeechBubbles: While everyone else has the traditional white bubbles, Fade's bubbles are in a very light green to set them apart.
* TheStakeout: Laura does this twice:
** The first is when she observes Debbie's family before revealing herself, which she does for nearly a month.
** She does it later with Logan, however a freak shift in the wind she couldn't account for tipped him off, and led him to lure her away from the school where he could confront her with less risk of collateral damage.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatAreYou:
** A part of Cap and Daredevil's interrogation of Laura hinges on this question.
** Fade asks her this when she's set off by the trigger scent, and is able to track him even after he becomes invisible.

* HairTriggerAvalanche: After being cornered by Kimura during her escape from the Facility bunker, Laura grabs a gun from Kimura's belt. Kimura mocks her by reminding her that she's indestructible. Laura simply responds, "I know," before aiming off to the side and firing to trigger an avalanche.
