    Eh. Anyone can claim to be anybody on the Internet. Wouldn’t be at all surprised if the dude on the forum is just making stuff up to get attention.

    That reeks of bull. As someone said in a response, Warlock or Colossus make more sense.

However, nothing was announced and I don't see anything on the website so maybe the podcast jumped the gun and no one caught it. Or Marvel delayed the announcement.

    If true I'm sad that Tom Taylor is leaving the character. He's done great work with Laura. And adding Gabby and Jonathan was a stroke of genius. (I can't imagine they wouldn't continue in a new book with Laura, though). And I'm also surprised they would go back to the X-23 title for her. I suppose we should hear soon about this.
    ANW is great seller. I doubt that Marvel will cancel it. Maybe they will just give Laura an X-23 mini about young years.

    One of the issues with Tom Taylor writing Laura was that he didn't think about what he should do next? He took away Kimura and the trigger scent issue but then what should be Laura's new direction? Because after that she was left with no internal struggles until Orphans of X and it ended with closure great but now what's next? Because Laura used to be a very complex character but most of that complexity is gone and she's now a totally different character. I mean he should have left something of the old Laura behind to keep her interesting.

    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    Ron White says you can't fix stupid. I beg to differ. Stupid will usually sort itself out, it's just a matter of making sure you're not close enough to become collateral damage.

    I would be genuinely surprised if this turned out to be true. It sounds very speculative with no way to really confirm it. I'm wondering if this isn't just wishful thinking that transformed into a rumor. The fact that New Mutants got delayed for so long hints that there's something bigger going on behind the scenes, but I doubt it simply involves trying to cash in on X-23's popularity after Logan.

    Why?

    I mean okay, her plot for Jennifer Walters was perhaps questionable for that character (though it was perhaps the most logical way of reconciling the WTF of Bendis), but based on that I think she'd make an excellent fit for Laura.

    Cuz she wrote She-Hulk and all I got was some half-assed comedy, a 4-parter with a radioactive pastry chef, yuri fanbait and some arc about a lesbian stalker rip-off version of Abominatrix.

    Was that supposed to sell me?

    And she 'fixed' Jen in one issue in a rather illogical fashion. Well it was half an issue because we had to get past that quack of a shrink first.

    Normally I think Tom's got a decent grasp on Laura's speech pattern, but her telling whatsherface to bring her "Nazi Stomping Boots" while hilarious and true feels a tad bit off.

    Well it was meant to highlight that she may have not been the best fit for that character, but general tone, style and themes would probably work better with Laura.

    I've only read first two trades at this point, but the rushed ending probably has to do with it getting cancelled.

    Well, we have confirmation. ANW is ending, probably with #36 in June, and Mariko Tamaki has a new X-23 #1 in July, with the Cabal and Woodward team.

    Also for those who are worried Scrappy and Jonathan are staying as well. It will be interesting to see how they explain Laura going to back to the x-23 mantle given how she showed disdain for the moniker the Eots II.

    Nooooo! I wish she had better supporting characters than two outdated Silver Age characters. She deserve it.
