Removed from main page, as there is a cleanup effort on one of the pages linked here underway and I am not sure what to do with this entry:

  • Jail Bait: During the events of NYX Laura was no older than 16. And she was a prostitute. Age of consent in New York City where she was living is 17. Even afterwards her style of dress trends towards the provocative, and with the Sliding Time Scale it's unlikely she's aged much since then. Being underage also doesn't stop her from going clubbing with Jubilee or Warren, even though she would likely be too young to get past the doors. Ultimately subverted by All-New Wolverine, in which she's clearly established as being 20 years old.

I just added a X-23 page for tropes pertaining to individual characters appearing in Laura's solo books. Should probably begin moving tropes for other characters (IE Kimura) off her main page to the Characters page to help clean things up a bit.

Should the Anti-Villain entry for Ms. Sinister really be listed here? This would seem a better fit for the entry on Sinister on one of the main X-Men character pages.

She's fully white. Only the alternate reality Kirika who is a daughter instead of a clone is half-Asian.

Why was Les yay moved to the "your milage may vary" part of the page?

Les/ho yay is defined on the site as "Those moments of plot, dialogue, acting, etc., that fans delight in interpreting as homoerotic." It is not a matter of a character being of that particular orientation, just a matter of them being interpretable in that way.

Surely unless every les/ho yay entry on tvtropes is moved to your milage may vary, the les yay entry should be back on the main page.

Yes, every Les/Ho Yay entry should be moved to YMMV, because it's purely fan reactions and fans seeing what they want to see.

"Just to complicate things a bit more in the comics (it was eventually revealed) that Sarah Kinney fudged things a bit by using adding her own DNA..."

Where was this revealed? I've read just about every comic with X-23 in it and don't remember anything like that.

Come to think of it, I don't recall any direct mention of this in either Innocence Lost OR Target X. There's certainly some INDIRECT evidence, since Laura is typically drawn to look a LOT like Sarah, (and more specifically, they have the same eyes) but is there an actual line in the books that explicitly says Sarah used some of her own DNA in the cloning process?

Should Most Common Superpower be added, as she's variously depicted with a C-cup to D-cup bust size?

She was only drawn like that in NXM. Most of her later appearances (X-Force, X-23 solo) depict her with an average to slightly above average bust size and not the Emma Frost size. I believe the Art shift trope pretty much covers this issue.

I noticed someone mentioning how Laura's healing factor gets burned out. However aside from one incident with a Nimrod-class Sentinel nothing remotely like this seems to have happened (if anything she shrugs off more damage than Logan usually does).

Laura tends to acquire more injuries like broken bones and sometimes even severed limbs. those injuries are impossible for Wolverine to get. also her body is not as durable as Logan's due to her build. Laura's healing factor does NOT burn out quicker, but constant healing from broken bones, and severed limbs burns her out.

Yes she gets banged up more than the guy with unbreakable bones, but when does her regen shut down on her?

Jul 24th 2011 at 6:07:59 PM •••

Her's has never burned out from what I can see. If anything it's superior to Logan's. I changed that healing factor line, since there is no evidence to support it.
