Laura Kinney claws her way to the top in a new X-23 miniseries announced at New York Comic Con

X-23: Deadly Regenesis will launch in March according to the Women in Marvel panel at NYCC '22

Fans of Laura Kinney have had a lot to enjoy over the past couple of years, with the character — a second Wolverine, alongside the original pint-sized Canadian terror — playing significant roles in the past couple of volumes of Marvel’s primary X-Men series. Those appearances were only the beginning, as was revealed during Marvel’s Women of Marvel panel at New York Comic Con Sunday morning.

Announced during the panel was a new five-issue miniseries spotlighting Laura, titled X-23: Deadly Regenesis. While details about the book are being kept secret for now — it’s still some time away from launch, with a March 2023 debut currently pencilled in — it’s worth noting the importance of the chosen title: 'Deadly Genesis' was, after all, the title of a 2005 X-Men miniseries revisiting the events of 1975’s Giant-Size X-Men #1, retconning a previously known group of X-Men into canon ahead of characters like Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, and Wolverine joining the team. Whether or not 'Deadly Regenesis' will have a similarly history-redefining effect on Laura Kinney’s backstory is something fans are some time away from finding out, however.

The creative team for the title includes a name familiar to Image Comics readers, with The Deadliest Bouquet’s Erica Schultz onboard as writer, Edgar Salazar providing interior art, and Kalman Andrasofszky providing covers.

X-23’s new series was only one of a number of new X-Men family title announcements during the Women in Marvel panel, alongside new series for Rogue and Betsy Braddock, all of which launch in the first few months of 2023.
