* ''Film/{{Logan}}'': [[spoiler: When X-24 kills Charles, [[Comicbook/{{X 23}} Laura]], who came to view him as a surrogate grandfather, gets ''violent'' and furiously leaps on his back with claws flashing, even though he's twice her size. He's only able to defeat and subdue her because she had no room to maneuver. Later in the film she does it ''again'' to protect her ''actual'' father, Logan, and this time subjects him to a positively brutal NoHoldsBarredBeatdown. X-24 only manages to shake her off when he manages to land a lucky blow (she ''is'' only eleven years old). She ultimately delivers the fatal blow via an adamantium bullet to his noggin when he tries to finish off the mortally wounded Logan.]]
