Some very old X-23 sketches I did before I started on the first script. The last pic is as far as I got on a new costume before the series was cancelled. It was a blast working with Marjorie and Jeanine on the book, though.
not as cool as I’d hoped. Laura … bored after a fight ….
It’s been a while… hi!! i needed a new facebook cover photo
X-23 by Sami Basri
Liu: But there was something about X-23’s character. It was her youth but also her vulnerability … She’s incredibly dangerous; I would argue she’s one of the best fighters in the Marvel Universe. But at the same time, at the core of her, the spirit of her, there’s a vulnerability that was really attractive to me as a writer. I just felt a deep affinity for her character. I loved writing her. If I could still be writing her now, I would. It’s hard because you don’t own these characters so at the end of the day you have to go into any project knowing you could be taken off of it at any time. It’s not yours. You can’t let yourself get too emotionally invested because of that. But I have to admit, X-23 is the one character that I became very emotionally invested in.
Cloonan: And X-23 is another great example like Belit she could have easily fallen to the side of cheesecake and been another — I hate to say Red Sonja, but I mean, look at her! [Laughter] X-23 could have easily just been a victim character, but the way you wrote her she was strong and there was much more depth to her than there could have been.”
