Check Out This Teaser From Hugh Jackman's Final Film As X-Men's Wolverine

Check Out This Teaser From Hugh Jackman's Final Film As X-Men's Wolverine

by Ezra Zydan

It isn't everyday that someone's career defining role hits that mark where it becomes their legacy, and it isn't every day that we edge closer and closer to seeing that actor prepare to put that role to the wind to be picked up by someone else (possibly? Who knows), but that is exactly what Hugh Jackman is doing. With the potential death of Logan slowly coming over the horizon, all we can do is sit and wait to see if this truly is the last time that we see Hugh Jackman don the adamantium claws of his most renown character. The finale in the Wolverine trilogy is known as Logan, and the teaser trailer for what may be the best Wolverine film ever done has finally arrived. You can check it out below:

The story of Logan is that the Sentinels have indeed wiped out most of mutant kind, and along the way, Logan finds one of the few mutants left living (we're assuming it's X-23, we have no real evidence supporting it, but who else would be taking the mantle in a finale about Wolverine? If the player was a boy, it would definitely be Akihiro, code name Daken (which means 'dog' in Japanese), his biological son. But let's get back to X-23, shall we?

Logan, and who we presume to be X-23, aka Laura Kinney.

She may go by a different name in the Fox/Marvel Universe, but in the comics, her chosen name was Laura Kinney, and she came to be following a botched attempted at cloning Wolverine's mutant abilities. She was created by a branch of the Weapon X programme known as 'The Facility'.

She made her first appearance in an animated series, instead of the comics.

This is something that she shares with the likes of Harley Quinn, as they both have made their debuts outside of the comic books. X-23's first appearance came from the critically acclaimed television show "X-Men: Evolution", where she made her debut in the episode "X-23" in 2003. She would then follow that up with her initial appearance in NYX #3 in 2004.

NYX #3, 2003

This is where Laura Kinney made her in-comics debut, and she is introduced as one of the young, homeless, and new mutants looking to survive New York life on their own terms. Following this series, she made appearances in "Wolverine and the X-Men", as well as a cameo appearance in "Hulk v. Wolverine."

Her abilities are nearly the same as Wolverine's.

She has his healing factor, as well as the enhanced senses, strength, and agility. The major difference in her abilities comes at the placement of her claws: Two in each hand, one in each foot, giving her the ability to become a mercenary or assassin with a leverage should she so desire.

However they decide her history will go, and whether or not she'll be involved in becoming a part of the X-Men of the current timeline remains to be seen, as she is set to replace the character known as Wolverine moving forward.
