Would X-23 be more intimidating if she were taller?

This is a question I've been thinking about for some time. I knew she wouldn't be that tall anyway since she's a clone of Wolverine and everyone knows that he's not the tallest guy in the marvel universe (Not by a long shot). But what if X-23 was taller would she really be that much more intimdating? If she was even a couple of inches taller would people be more scared of her before she popped the claws out. Even if she were 5'6 maybe. If she was freakishly tall (So tall that she had to duck under door frames) would bad guys wet themselves and automatically run before even considering fighting her? I know X-23 herself would find advantages in being taller (Greater reach and so on). Or would being taller hamper her abilities? i don't really know, so what are your views on the matter.

Nah. I think her lack of height and her petite build only make her more intimidating because her looks and deadliness starkly contrast. I think it's the same with Wolverine; being short just makes him all the more badass.

No way, thats one of the scarier things about Wolverine anyway. He is so little, but the amount of ferocity they pack into that small frame is amazing. Same with 23.

If anything, her small stature is an advantage because it makes her opponents underestimate her.

In addition to what everyone else said, she really wouldn't be a Wolverine if she were tall,

Wikipedia:

The wolverine has a reputation for ferocity and strength out of proportion to its size, with the documented ability to kill prey many times its size.

Of course, if she was taller, stronger looking or (and not to sound sexist) a man than yea she would be. X-23 looks as intimidating as a Victoria secret model.

She is scary because she looks like a skinny emo chick.

I think making anyone taller usually make them more intimidating buti think he smal stature gives her an advantage bc even against people that have heard she is dangerous but are meeting her for the first time will most likely still under estimate her

If she was 50 feet tall she would be as intimidating as hell.
