    ...is Laura? Also given Logan's centuries old due to healing factor and Daken's 80ish....do you think we'll see Marvel stick to continuity and let the people around her age while she stays a kid? 
    (although we know Greg Land will always draw her as mid 20's porn star just like he does Hope)

    In the Pixie mini, one of the monsters taunted her with a "How long have you been 17?" or something similar. 17 at least for me.

    Considering that the mini was a few years ago, and none was the wiser, you could say that they already got away...

    She's at least two years older than she was when NXM started. Because Hope was born 1 year after M-Day and Hope came back one year after Cable left with her as a baby. Domino said she was 16 in X-Force 20 so ether 16 or17

    @thatlad:
    Wanna know what's strange? Is that in X-Force / Cable: Messiah Wars, Laura is walking with a young Hope. She 's obviously got a few years on Hope. But now, they're drawing Hope older all of a sudden, like in the last Uncanny X-Men #526, (or is it X-Men Legacy #238 ? Read them both together earlier today) and they're drawing Laura in the new solo covers like a 15 year old! So I guess it's like they've both become the same age all of a sudden. Hmmm. I can understand Laura having slow growth biology, but reverse? Ha, whatever. We still love it. Just one of those things...

    She was absolutely a child prostitute in NYX: Wannabe #1 - NYX: Wannabe. Went from being used by one group of terrible manipulative people to being used by another.

    As for now? Even though this thread is years old, it's hard to say whether she's officially made it into "legal" territory.

    If she's not 18 by now, then she must be damn close to it. And if she is 18, and Young Cyclops is 15, then she may find some laws working against her. And I know that in real life this would be no laughing matter, but I still find this whole thing funny as hell.

    @oldmanjoe: IIRC, Bobby is 16 and the youngest X-men. So she should be in the clear.

    Ha I want to see wolverine take her out to the bars once she's legal then maybe well see a "father" daughter moment (or to my thinking older brother little sister).

    IIRC she was 14 when she arrived at the mansion so she should be about 17/18 ish.

    @thatlad: "while she stays a kid". Is it canon that she ages slowly at this point? Maybe Laura being a clone makes her different, but the way i understand Logans aging is that he aged normally until his prime and only then the slow aging kicked in. A healing factor shouldnt prevent growth, it should just prevent the body from degrading.
