I'm more interested in X-23's other
August solicitation...X-FORCE #18"NOT FORGOTTEN"
The fallout from MESSIAH WAR continues! X-23 is missing, and as horrific as her life has been...it's about to get worse. Elixir knows the truth about the mutant messiah. Wolverine confronts Cyclops about his decisions leading up to the War. Wolfsbane's journey back to X-Force begins. Bastion's master plan gets one step closer to fruition. And if all that weren't enough...Seline's forces are on the move. More action and drama than any one comic has a right to have! Part 2 (of 4)
Looks like someone's interested in coating her little bones in metal...
...possibly Daken testing out the adamantium bonding process before doing it to himself?
Anywho, X-23 will lose whatever initial fight she has with Daken.
Daken, at the moment, is a higher profile character, with much more connection to Wolverine (which is basically all it comes down to with Wolvie- axillaries ).
I'd like to see Daken comletely brutalize (possibly even kill) X-23, and that
be the final straw that tells logan "yup, I'm gonna have to kill this jerk"
