Okay, so last time I got a bit carried away in wanting to comment on all the characters which kind of shifts the point of this place. So instead let's just focus on the elements of X-23 that can be gleamed from this great title.
1.) X-23 and Finesse Sparring.
I hope this becomes a regular occurence. These two are interesting together with all that could be covered. There's a ton of potential here to explore.
2.) The kids still not quite grasping what trigger scent is.
I have a feeling this is going to be a common occurence until they finally get used to it, or X-23 explains to them how it works.
3.) X-23 rushing off to protect the kids at the first sign of danger.
Another interesting point that comes back to what I was saying before as X-23 as sort of a teacher's aid/Counselor. Granted here, it also shows her lack of training in dealing with certain areas of the unknown. She recognized danger, but rushed off without a plan or strategy in how to deal with this unknown threat. (Dire wraiths are entirely new to X-23.)
The emotional instinctual reaction plays up to what was just said by Black Widow to X-23 in her ongoing. That X-23's emotions make her get sloppy with how she reacts. It also plays up to the elements of the character that have no care for her own well-being. After everything we've seen in the ongoing though with how X-23 can lock out telepaths and even overpower dimensional entities trying to possess her, it makes me wonder how long the dire wraith will be able to control her. It could be argued that the power from all the people there has heightened the wraith's powers, including X-23's healing powers and the invincible kid's, but it does bring to question the power levels of those presences she's dealt with before. Of course this could also be thanks to the little telepathic parasite in X-23 who seems to want to see her blood thirsty and attack others. If he were the cause of the other blockings besides Laura's own will, he could also be the reason the Dire Wraith is getting such a strong hold on Laura. (Comic book science... Oh how I loathe thee.)
