    X-23

    Character » X-23 appears in 2421 issues.

    X-23 is a product of the Weapon X program, born from a damaged sample of Wolverine's DNA. During the First Age of Krakoa, she had grown old while in the Vault and presumed dead. After being rescued, she existed at the same time as a resurrected clone of herself until she was killed during Fall of X, leaving the clone as the lone Laura once more.

    She's come to be known as X-23.  There was an obvious hint that they were going to change her name to Talon, but it wasn't followed up.  So it looks like she'll stick with X-23, which is a shame as that's the name the Facility gave her...  but she doesn't seem able to shed her past.

    Hmmm, some other feral animal, only more effeminate than Wolverine. Hyena or something?

    Since a Wolverine is a weasel she could change her codename to... Mink?  
    No that's bad, what other weasels are there... Ferret? :/

    I think it's maybe too late too change her name, even if her code-name was awesome, people would still hate! But I'm all for it! Naming her X-23 kinda still makes her feel she's still just  a clone, when I thought Wolverine, the X-Students and the X-Men were trying to make her feel more human, surely it be more reasonable to give her a code name and no longer make her feel like she's not human? I think what I said just made sense lol!

    no she should just stay X-23
    Wolverine was able to go with Wolverine because thats what he was called before we learned his origin 
    after we learned about him being weapon X no one was going to start calling him that since thats a past he didn't want to remember and everyone was used to calling him Wolverine anyway
    it's a good idea to have her go by something else but it's kinda too late she's developed too much in the X-area to go by anything else
    maybe if they had thought of this when she first started working with the X-men but now it's too late that door has slammed shut

    I'm much to fond of the name now, it just seems right despite it's dark past 
     
    it fits her, I wouldn't want to have to get use to a new name

    Marvel already has a couple of characters named Talon. Not that it makes any difference, but she should at least get an unique code name.

    It was right at the end of the X-23 mini series.  She gets on a bus and sees a little boy reading a book about a bird of prey, and the focus is drawn in on the bird's talons.  I know a lot of characters are named after their powers, but Talon doesn't seem to sum up her character.  But then again, X-23 is an odd name if you don't know her background.

    Hmmmm are there any decent code-names left? 
     
    Personally I think she may as well stick with X-23.

      I am used to X-23 and so are a lot of others Marvel changing it now would just confuse people on what to call her.

    completely agree you gotta find a name and stick with it
    of course there is an exception Venom to Anti-Venom. Ms. Marvel to Binary, 
    thats all i can think of off the top of my head.
    my point is that if you have something huge happen to you, you kinda need a new name because you aren't the same hero you were now you are (insert new hero name here)

    Her code name should be Green Eyes, and then hopefully artists will remember to draw her with Green eyes, and then they can change it back to X-23 at a later date.  
     
    I think the fun with code names, is the nicknames that eventually arise. Think Wolvie, Stormy, Gumbo, Cannonballz, etc X-23's would be just X, as in hey 'X', which I think is nice, since its kinda implying a strong connection to the X-Men and its themes. I think Laura is more deserving of that connection, than say Nate Grey. (though I like him, a code name like X-Man should not be given lightly) plus X is more subdued and ambiguous than that. I think 23 could work as in twenty three as well lol, like Thirteen from House. So even though X-23 has some bad history, there are ways to give it a more endearing touch, plus take ownership of the word and its power.

    I like the name Talon. I think they could find something better for her though. I believe she should stop being called that and she should tell people to stop calling her that
