X-23 from the X-Men Comics

X-23 is a genetic clone of the famous Canadian X-Man Wolverine, successfully created in a lab by scientist Dr. Sarah Kinney after twenty-two failed attempts. Her first-ever appearance in X-Men lore was the X-Men: Evolution TV series, but was welcomed into the comic book universe with the NYX comics, which explained her origin story in a grittier fashion than the children’s cartoon before it. X-23 then entered the Marvel-Fox cinematic universe in the form of a young Mexican child in James Mangold’s Logan, but her teenage/young adult persona from the comics can be just as fun to cosplay.

Sabretooth from X-Men Origins: Wolverine

In X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber), real name Victor Creed, is a mutant with animal-like abilities like retractable claws, regenerative healing, and enhanced senses… much like his younger half-brother Wolverine.

Laura Kinney (X-23)

Laura Kinney (X-23)

In Logan, Laura Kinney (Dafne Keen) is a mysterious young mutant who is revealed to be a clone made from Wolverine’s blood. She might be an 11-year old girl wearing a rainbow tee and colorful sunglasses, but make no mistake that she is X-23, a deadly assassin created to be the perfect killing machine.

Caliban

Caliban from Logan

Caliban (Stephen Merchant) is a mutant from the X-Men film series and in Logan is an ally to Wolverine. He helps foster Charles Xavier, but in the past, his power of tracking Mutants was used to eliminate most of them. He cannot be exposed to sunlight or else he burns horrifically.

Logan

Taking inspiration from the Old Man Logan comic series, the film Logan has Hugh Jackman portraying a graying and gritty Wolverine, capping a 17-year run with his final appearance in the role. Logan is scraping a living as a limo driving, hustling medications south of the border for Professor X when a young mutant pleads for his help.

Wolverine

Wolverine is everyone’s favorite Canadian comic book hero, usually portrayed by Hugh Jackman when he’s hugely jacked. He’s the grumpy member of the X-Men, due to the fact that he doesn’t know much more about his past than that his real name is Logan. You’ll have to supply your own adamantium skeleton on this one.
