The match-up plenty of people seemed to want for quite a while, is finally upon us.

 Wolverine’s family may just destroy itself as his son Daken and his daughter X-23 face off in a battle to the death this March in Collision! Brought to fans by fan favorite writers Marjorie Liu and Daniel Way alongside artists Marco Chechetto and Ryan Stegman, Collision will change the future of Wolverine’s progeny With a foothold in Madripoor as king of the criminal underworld, Daken is untouchable…that is until X-23 shows up at his doorstep. Claws are popped and blood is drawn as the battle for supremacy starts this March in Daken: Dark Wolverine #7 and continues in both X-23 and Daken: Dark Wolverine. When the smoke clears, who will be left standing in Collision?

@The Dark Huntress:I look forward to it, and I will surely read it, but Daken's crossovers with other books have been pretty bad so far, so I don't have very high hopes.

@Morpheus_ Is it that he's written incorrectly or just bad story telling?

Both, particularly with FrankenCastle. Not that Dark Wolverine/Wolverine Origins was any better, even though both books were written by the same man. :I

I just hope Liu is as biased towards Daken as she is to X-23.

I do not understand how damn near all related characters always fight each other. Makes no sense. 
 
What's worse is how many people like seeing family vs family.

This was a long time com'n, still hate Daken's new look though... he looks like Lego Wolverine with a bad coloring...

I happen to like the costume. . .  
Anyway, I agree. Daken is rarely written well and I think that's a big problem. one of my bigger issues is with the art though. But it looks killer (pun) here.

" @Morpheus_: Will this be coming out in a trade paper back? Probably in April, right? It is just called "X-23 vs. Daken"? "
It will more than likely, but there is no way of knowing when it will be available in TPB form, or what the definitive official name of the TPB will be (despite being called Collision currently).

Interesting that Daken is apparently taking up residence in Madripoor.  
 
Could we see the return of Bloodscream and Roughouse??? *crosses fingers*

@Jake Fury:Daken is set to confront Tyger Tiger, but the identity of his other opponents (if any), has been undisclosed.

Really?! Daken v. Laura?! Oh, this is gonna be a good one.......Hopefully. I mean I understand they are both great fighters as well as Wolverine's children, but I hope that the story is perfect for a cross between these two. All that aside, let the SNIKT!!!-ing begin.

Yeah but...
is it me or they are truely going to be befriended at the end of the day?
just take a look at their backround:
Daken holding his grandge towards wolverine due to insidents happened in wolverine origins on one hand
and Lauras disatisfaction fo being sacked out of x-force by her own(wannabe)father on the other.
is it coming or what?

Logically, if they do end up having an honest to goodness fight, Daken should win it somewhat easily. V_V

This should be a pretty hard cross over to screw up...can't wait. Daken's costume is still really lame, though.

I noticed some people saying they don't like the way Daken is written, to be honest I perfer how Daniel Way has written Daken since Issue #1. Daken comes off as calculating and manipulative and you honestly never know when he telling the truth or lying, thats perfect in my opinion. I've been following both X-23 and Daken and while X-23's book may appeal to some Daken's is definitely were the action is. Hell the guy became King of Madripoor in less than a day, that take skill

@HellionVulcan:
I thought they already have a common ground - Weapon X.
