How durable is Risk? Anyway it isn't like his strength is enough to hurt X-23 a whole lot or actually put her down.
In that same issue he withstood an explosion that wiped out a building and blew up a street and was lifting several tons of rubble at once with one arm.
If that is all then it wouldn't make a difference, since X-23 can hear his heart beat, smell him, and shown herself able to track people she couldn't see before.
Oversight on my part.
Ok I didn't see Cassandra until now in the scans so yeah I can see why that is impressive.
You think Laura could pretty much do the same thing if Cass wasn't there? It's ridiculously impressive, and Laura hasn't done anything comparable.
Still how is Deathstroke going to actually put her down? She has a healing factor better than wolverine's and has claws that can without a doubt go through deathstroke's armor.
Decapitation or straight up knocking her out in any number of ways. Slade doesn't have to actually kill her to win.
