Wolverine – Weapon X – Insane in the Brain | Comics

Locked within a padded cell of an asylum, Wolverine fails to recall how he ended up here and fell victim to Dr. Rottwell.

Earlier, Logan was busy fighting Strikeforce X, a group of super soldiers created by Roxxon Corporation from old Weapon X files. Lately, he couldn't even remember who he really was as he is seemingly stuck in an asylum like facility. As he struggles to get a grip on his memories, a voice on speaker asks him what he can recall about his childhood.

Wolverine talks about how he remembers living in a big fancy house and being sick all the time. He recollects killing his father and how he was raised by wolves, fighting in Spanish Civil War, being an honorable samurai in Japan, falling in love with Silver Fox, having mutant superhero friends among X-Men, going to moon and having a vision of future.

He is asked if any of what he just said made any sense and he admits that it sounds a bit crazy. He admits that something is most probably wrong with him but he also can't shake off these memories. Logan is then put to sleep as soon as he starts asking about an incident earlier that day, which was to write something on a wall with his own blood.

Marked as "Patient X", an orderly is seen to be washing what he wrote outside of his cell door earlier. After putting his straight jacket away, Logan is allowed to among fellow patients there and one of them asks him to join for an escape. Next day, he meets that same guy in hallway with a side of his head stitched and is left completely immobile.

That same week, a masquerade party is thrown off to celebrate a long-time patient being cured and Logan got to meet with Doctor Rot, who promises to cure him. Knowing about Wolverine's true origins, Rot tries to unleash his violent side by pitting him against his guards but he refuses to fight back and continue to have nightmares from Weapon X days.

Earlier, Rottwell and his men took Charlie Chainsaws to incurable ward to replace his hands with chainsaws. Later that day, two mobsters came at his doorsteps to hire a hitman without knowing that previous owner of this facility has died. One of them ended up being sawed down at Charlie's hands and another being experimented on by Doctor Rot.

He sees other patients being tortured in front of him and minds his own business anyway until a day when he finally lets his inner beast out by unsheathing his adamantium claws and gutted down his tormentors for good. It turns out that he was simply under influence of a simulation program run on him by Dr. Rottwell and is put to sleep once again.

At one point, he starts wondering if this has been his life all along and then he briefly recalls his past as an X-Man. It all started a week ago when Wolverine was investigating a case along with reporter Melita Garner where three serial killers gone missing in a year from a homeless shelter in San Francisco and he decides to check this oddity out for himself.

However, before he could even get the drop on them, Logan is under a psychic attack and gets captured by Rottwell's crew. When he came to his senses, he keeps telling himself that he is not insane and gets to know more about this facility from an inmate. Dr. Rottwell repeatedly tries to hack into his brain and eventually learns about all of his dark secrets.

Logan managed to send a distress psychic call to Melita Garner and tell her where he currently is, "Dunwich Sanatorium". Next thing she knows, Nightcrawler and Psylocke shows up at her doorstep when she called a number that he gave her. These two berak into Dunwich to discover what Dr. Algernon Rottwell was working on, a God Brain Machine.

He never really got a chance to have an up-close confrontation with Rot and fell prey to his mind control machine that lead to his capture even before he realized what he went up against. Things got so bad that his partner in crime, reporter Melita Garner had to reach out for X-Men members Nightcrawler and Psylocke to get emergency help.

Wolverine fought a bunch of Roxxon-sponsored super soldiers in previous "Adamantium Men" storyline and while looking into his past from Weapon X program, he came across an enemy for whom he rarely is a match for.

Uncanny X-Men – The First Foursaken
 | Comics
In Africa, a pack of military people working for a mysterious local warlord are looking for mutants to try and taking them as their slaves. But since the event of M-Day, mutant population has been drastically decreased to a very minimal level worldwide. Their scanner shows them the sign of a mutant right behind them and they met the weather manipulating X-Man Ororo, also known as Storm as they turn. In her homeland, the goddess kicked out the soldiers while two full grown up pet tigers that came with her, engages the rest of the militants. She gave that soldier a pretty hard time and then drops him on the ground after quite a spin in the atmosphere, which they pretty much deserved.

X-Men member Psylocke had previously died in a battle and recently she have re-appeared again in the X-Mansion. Psylocke's brother, Jamie Braddock appears in the mansion and he seems a bit insane of some sort this time. Nightcrawler and Marvel Girl kicked him on his chin to knock out but then he created a small illusion that caused them fighting each other, each thinking the other as Jamie. Psylocke and Cannonball joins the brawl but soon they also starts having the same illusion as Rachel and Kurt. Bishop caused some distraction that allows Psylocke to beat up her brother but Jamie killed all the X-Men by unleashing The Fury. Soon, he restores them back to life and informs that he is here to help them save the universe from The Foursaken and the event is of so much importance that Uatu the Watcher has also arrived.

X-23 | Comics

Unlike any children, she was born as a clone in an attempt of a top-secret facility to re-create Weapon X program that gave birth to Wolverine. Doctor Sarah Kinney proposed for a female clone when the other twenty two died in the Adamantium bonding process and then act as her surrogate mother to preserve even a small fraction of humanity in her but all her efforts go in vein by the intervention of Doctor Zander Rice.

He set up Kinney to be killed by X-23 with a "trigger scent" and in her dying breath she named the clone “Laura”. She became a weapon, killed many folks, escaped The Facility and then goes to seek out Wolverine. Then Captain America and Matt Murdock comes to take her in but eventually sets her free to avoid S.H.I.E.L.D.'s exploitation of her.

She ended up on streets living as a prostitute but then welcomed by the X-Men in Xavier Institute. When New X-Men was formed, she joined the team with Elixr, Hellion, Mercury, Prodigy, Rockslide and Surge. She teamed-up with Spider-Man, became Captain Universe for a while, helped destroy cyborg Nimrod, bested her handler Kimura several times, defeated Lady Deathstrike during Messiah CompleX.

Then she enrolled to the X-Force team, fought the Hulk, made an uneasy alliance with Daken against Mr. Sinister, aided the Future Foundation and finally became a part of Avengers Academy. She also formed the “Circle of Four” with Ghost Rider, Red Hulk and Venom against Blackheart. Following the “Death of Wolverine” she took the mantle of her mentor to honor his memory.

Originally created by Craig Kyle and Chris Yost for a TV series, prior to her debut in comics in 2004, X-23 is a fictional Marvel Comics character who is a clone of another popular protagonist; Wolverine. X-23 was a part of many X-Men based crossover and stories like Innocence Lost, Target X, The Killing Dream, NYX, Decimation, Mercury Falling, World War HulkQuest for Magik, League of Losers, Messiah War and Second Coming.

Her Father's Legacy

She was one of the Wolverines just like Daken, Lady Deathstrike, Mystique and Sabretooth. Although she is a clone of Wolverine, it is shown in the 2005 limited series X-Men – Age of Apocalypse while further exploring the alternate reality of Age of Apocalypse that she is actually the daughter of Wolverine and Jean Grey of that timeline.

Aside from her many notable comic-book appearance, X-23 also appeared on two animated series X-Men – Evolution and Wolverine and the X-Men on TV. The character would also appear in the upcoming 2017 film Logan in her very first live-action appearance, portrayed by Dafne Keen. But since her role is only titled “Laura” and not “X-23”, it is still unclear what part she will end up playing.
