Added DiffLines:

** The "Old Woman Laura" storyline is a direct contrast to the ''ComicBook/OldManLogan'' story. As in that tale, all the super-villains got together to attack...and were defeated because it's impossible to get a few thousand twisted, greedy, selfish, self-serving sociopath criminals to trust each other enough to become an effective army. While the heroes took some losses, they were able to use their superior teamwork to take the villains down.


** After Laura downs a Predator drone with her bare hands, Warren is about to do this to Laura when she stops him. Not because she's afraid of the display of affection, but because she's currently ''severely'' injured and her healing factor is still putting her back together. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Warren pats her on the head, instead]].

* RunningGag: Bellona's first reaction to...pretty much ''everything'' is to just shoot it. Leads to a SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}} when she shoots a cupboard in Dr. Strange's house. ''[[ItMakesSenseInContext For winking at her!]]'' It gets to the point that Laura ''yelling at her'' for shooting everything in sight has become a running gag in of itself.

** An in-universe ''aversion'': When Deadpool has to remove his costume, he warns Gabby about the hideous scarring covering his body thinking she'll have this reaction. Gabby is actually ''completely unfazed'', and promptly shows him her own facial scars. [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments It's as sweet as it sounds.]]

** Deadpool and Gabby team up in issue 31 to fight an ''actual'' ZombieApocalypse...of ''small animals''. Being a horde of zombie rabbits, squirrles, and other such critters, (including a ''[[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments sloth]]'') they were never in serious danger.

Added DiffLines:

** The "Old Woman Laura" arc has a major shot on the famous ''ComicBook/OldManLogan'' storyline. It states how, as in the other tale, all the super-villains got together into one massive army to attack the heroes...and were easily beaten because it's impossible to get a few thousand greedy, twisted sociopathic criminals to work as a unit while the heroes are better organized and used their teamwork to defeat their enemies.

Added DiffLines:

* TheLastStraw: The Orphans of X were once content to hate Laura and her fellow Wolverines from afar, getting together only to support each other. But after what happened on Roosevelt Island, their disgust at seeing those they hate most hailed as heroes prompted them to try to kill them all.


Added DiffLines:

* LogicalWeakness:
** Kimura may be super-strong and possess unbreakable skin, but she still needs to breathe. Laura kills her by drowning her.
** The Muramasa metal prevents wounds from healing, but only in the wounded area itself. Laura and her family take advantage of this by simply cutting out the area around the wound, allowing their HealingFactor to kick back in and replace the entire area.


Added DiffLines:

* MoralMyopia: [[spoiler:Henry Sutter]], leader of the Ophans of X. [[spoiler:He hates Laura for killing his father, Martin, ignoring the fact that Martin was the one who created Laura to be an assassin for hire (information he neglected to share with the rest of the Orphans, including Amber, whom he was romantically involved with). He also ignores the fact that Laura spared his life (and her acknowledging that this encounter was what spurred her to reject the Facility's orders), and her telling him that she was just as much a victim as him, shooting her repeatedly with Muramasa bullets and calling her an "animal". Amber, whose father was killed by Laura, is noticeably disturbed by his actions.]]


Added DiffLines:

** The Orphan of X acting as a TortureTechnician to Daken. Irritated by the fact that Daken hasn't made a sound in three straight days of torture, the Orphan released Daken's remaining hand from the restraints and holds it down by the wrist, intent on cutting off his arm. Daken takes the opportunity to pop his wrist claw throw the Orphan's hand, then impale him through the skull. Daken then steals the Orphan's masks and uses it to escape.


Added DiffLines:

* YouKilledMyFather: The Orphans of X all lost loved ones to Laura and her fellow Wolverines in the past, and are out for {{Revenge}}.

Added DiffLines:

* WakingUpAtTheMorgue: Exploited in issue 6 by Laura to infiltrate Alchemax. Step 1, disguise herself as Bellona. Step 2, make a [[LeeroyJenkins reckless headlong attack on alerted guards with machine guns]]. Step 3, soak up enough bullets to convincingly flatline while her regeneration prioritizes the internal damage. Step 4, get body-bagged and hauled to the lab for dissection.


** After Laura downs a Predator drone with her bare hands, Warren is about to do this to Laura when she stops him. Not because she's afraid of the display of affection, but because she's currently ''severely'' injured and her healing factor is still putting her back together.

** In issue 33, Laura notes that Gabby [[NoodleIncident was once stepped on by Thanos]], referencing a joke about Galactus stepping on their sandwiches used in issue 7 by Logan and Laura about how they can't have a normal life.

** It's revealed in "Old Woman Laura's" alternate future that AmbiguouslyBi Gabby has succeeded Laura (straight) as Wolverine in turn. Additionally, [[spoiler:Danielle Cage, a biracial woman, is now Comicbook/CaptainAmerica]].

In April, 2017, a "soft" relaunch began as part of ''ComicBook/{{ResurrXion}}'', with Laura gaining an armored black-and-gray costume based more on her X-Force outfit, and art by Leonard Kirk. The book is ending in May, 2018, with issue 35. It will be replaced in July with a new ''X-23'' series, written by Mariko Tamaki, and with an art team of Juan Cabal and Nolan Woodward

Added DiffLines:

* RedHerring: In issue 34, [[spoiler:Wasp makes a point of mentioning she's stuck in her small size for good, and trying to return to normal would tear her apart. This would ''seem'' to be laying the groundwork for a HeroicSacrifice later. However it never comes to pass]].

Added DiffLines:

* ArtShift: Subtle examples in issues 30 and 32:
** [[spoiler:Henry Sutter]] holds Laura at gunpoint when she confronts him and tries to talk him and the rest of the Orphans of X down at the end of issue 30. For precisely one panel, [[spoiler:Henry is drawn to resemble the age he was the night Laura killed his mother and father]].
** Similarly done in issue 32: in the last panel, where Laura and Amber are drawn to look as they did the day of Laura's first assassination.

Added DiffLines:

* IRegretNothing: Gabby's verbatim response to Laura's annoyance over betraying her secret SuicideMission to Captain Marvel and Hawkeye in issue 34.


Added DiffLines:

* SuicideMission: Laura's mission in "Old Woman Laura" is this: She's dying, and sets out on a one-way trip to kill Doom, and rescue Bellona. That it requires venturing deep into Latveria means that even if she succeeds, she's likely not coming back alive.

Added DiffLines:

* KilledOffScreen: The only casualty of the Doom World War explicitly shown in "Old Woman Laura" is Hellion during a flashback battle scene. However if Doom's SuperheroTrophyRoom is any indication, [[spoiler:Comicbook/{{Cap|tainAmerica}}, [[Comicbook/TheMightyThor Thor]], [[Comicbook/IronMan Stark]], and [[Comicbook/SpiderMan Peter Parker]] were killed as well]].


Added DiffLines:

* SuperheroTrophyShelf: Doom decorates his throne room with Comicbook/IronMan's mask, [[Comicbook/TheMightyThor Mjolnir]], Comicbook/CaptainAmerica's shield, and Comicbook/SpiderMan's torn costume in issue 34.


* BigBrotherIsWatching: The feed from [[spoiler:Sarah's]] hidden camera is labeled "Big Mother."

** Doom is wired into the entire population of Latveria in "Old Woman Laura," allowing him to see and hear all that goes on in the country.


Added DiffLines:

** Averted to tragic effect in "Old Woman Laura:" [[spoiler:Laura attempts to take a blast from a Doombot aiming at Maria Hill. She successfully tanks the hit...only for the blast to go ''clean through her'' and fatally wound Hill, anyway.]]
