Note: Although her ongoing series might be cut short, Marvel’s X-23 remains a memorable character with a rich potential waiting to be explored. Artist Josh Gowdy took on Logan’s little girl (or clone, rather) and brought a subdued color palette reminiscent of Wolverine’s brown-and-tan costume of old. Check out Josh’s comments on the design below the art, and thanks to Superhero of the Month for bringing his work to our attention! – Chris A.
Artist Josh Gowdy’s thoughts on the design:
I found this one pretty difficult as, X-23 is still developing as a character. Daken’s observations of Laura in the recent Collision storyline have made me think of her more as a dancer in the way she moves. I tried to carry this across in my design. I also wanted to lose the mid-drift top and the long hair. I don’t think it’d get in the way so much as be absolutely feral after most missions– there is generally a lot of blood and guts flying about in an X-23 story!
