I wrote a character spotlight for X-23 on Gothamrogue’s blog, The Speech Bubble. I first wrote it about a month ago, but he was busy building an online comic store and just posted it today. Check out his store here.
Last month, Marvel released several teasers for their new, post-Secret Wars Universe. The first mostly showed characters we already knew would stick around. The second teaser however revealed a girl donning Wolverine’s name and uniform. So who is this Wolverine girl?
To the uninitiated, this might seem like a simple gender swap, a part of Marvel’s newfound “feminist agenda” that the ignorant keep complaining about. But that’s not what this is. That’s not what the new female Thor is either, but that’s another discussion. This female Wolverine has existed in comics for more than 10 years, and she didn’t even begin in the comics. And she’s popular – how else do you explain these recent poll results at comicbookresources.com?
