Funny: X-23
  • X-23's first encounter with Spider-Man.
    Spider-Man: Wolverine, good lord! What did they do to you?
  • Odds are that an ordinary babysitting job would be something that Laura could figure out. Her first one is not ordinary. After being agape at them donning nuclear masks X has to ask what they're up to.
    Laura: You want to use a nuclear bomb... to travel in time.
    Valeria Richards: It's only five hundred kilotons.
  • Laura's first day in School in the "Target X" miniseries. She gets sent to the principal's office twice with her guide, her cousin Megan.
    • First, she's asked if she speaks French, and when she's asked to give an example of her French language skill, she proceeds to go into detailed assassination protocols.
    Megan: What the hell did you say?!
    • Then, in Biology, after correcting a teacher on how many pints of blood are in a human (5.6, he said 7), she's asked to if she has anything else to add for that class. Cue practical instruction on use of poisons.
    • Finally, when visiting the principal's office for the second offense, the principal yells at the pair and asks them if they are even listening. Laura proceeds to repeat what the principal said to them. Exactly. Complete with vocal intonations and inflections.
    • Watch Megan's reaction to Laura, at that scene. She's curling up in her chair, basically assuming the fetal position. This is the same girl who was introduced as something of a problem child with lack of respect for others. And she's getting freaked out.
    • And then she steals the principal's car.
    • Also hilarious is the Shout-Out of the two teachers' designs. Jamie teaches French, Adam biology.
  • Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has her dumping Galactus' carcass at Wolverine's home in her ending, bragging how she should be considered the best since she had killed a god. Wolverine's all "Yeah yeah, now get that thing off my lawn."
  • During a flashback in The Killing Dream Logan (unnecessarily) coaches Laura through sharpshooting. After she pulls the trigger it's revealed that he's with her at an amusement park and they were playing the shooting gallery. Laura has put a round straight through the forehead of one of the prizes, a teddy bear, to the distress and amazement of the carny. When Logan tells her that wasn't what he expected, Laura flatly reminds him he said to aim at what she wanted.
    • As they walk away (with the bear in hand!) she comments about how roller coasters are said to make people want to scream and throw up, and wants to try that.
    • The whole flashback doubles as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming as well, as Logan does his best to help Laura feel like a normal teenage girl.
  • One of the cute scenes with Psylocke and X is after Psylocke had just been revived in World's End. She and Laura have rejoined the captured X-Men and the Savage Land mutates, who are preparing to face the Hauk'ka. Psylocke is sitting on a branch, deftly braiding her hair while talking with Bishop. Laura is emulating her in the background, fighting with her hair, trying to get it to behave. A few pages later when the Hauk'ka arrive, Psylocke has moved on to helping Nightcrawler and Bishop un-lock their powers, perfect braid swaying behind her... and X-23 rushes out to fight Raina, with her hair in a messy bun, apparently having given up on it.
  • In an otherwise incredibly grim series, Laura is part of one of the few genuinely hilarious moments in Avengers Arena: As Chase transforms into Darkhawk to take on Apex after he overhears her plans to use the Sentinel and Deathlocket to kill the rest of the kids, he begins to psych himself up for the fight with a Rousing Speech just as Laura runs past...
    Chase: Darkhawk is—
    Laura: (runs past and yells at him without breaking stride) Stay!
    Chase: —staying put!
  • After Julian mouths off about her always playing Wolverine in simulations, Laura very clearly makes her irritation known by walking up to him and extending her claws just short of his groin.
    Julian: Down, girl.
    (SNIKT)
    Rockslide: Ouch.
    Julian: Didn't they clone you a sense of humor?
  • From All-New X-Men #20, Teen!Bobby putting a lampshade on how terrible an idea it is to make another Wolverine.
    Bobby: They make Wolverines? On purpose? ... First I can't get over the fact they purposely made Wolverine. And now I can't get over the fact that after they saw what Wolverine turned out like, they thought it might be a good idea to clone him into a teenage girl.
  • And Jean and Kitty's observations after that.
    Jean: A girl that Scott Summers quite fancies.
    Kitty: Scott Summers fancies the genetic clone of Wolverine?
    Jean: Yes, he does.
    Kitty: Shudder.
    • Probably the best part being that Kitty actually said "shudder," and it was not an onomatopoeia.
  • And afterwards, crossing over with Crowning Moment of Heartwarming, Laura's bemused reaction to Teen!Scott giving her a Cool Down Hug when she's freaking out over waking up in a Weapon X facility. Particularly about hugging with an audience.
  • Laura's reaction to Hercules posing au naturale when discussing the Greek Olympics in Avengers Academy. While the rest of the students react with shock or embarrassment (and Finesse appraises him curiously), Laura just looks bored.
