Wolverine 3: Logan Photo Leaks, Spoilers: Photo Teases Origin of X-23
Wolverine 3: Logan

A new photo for Wolverine 3: Logan hints at the origin of X-23. The image seems to confirm that the mutant is one of Sutter’s experiments.


Is X-23 Wolverine’s Clone?

The photo surfaced on the official Instagram page for the movie. The image shows a few vials filled with a liquid substance and some other medical supplies. There is a syringe and a device that looks like the one used as a mutant injection.

The caption in the Wolverine 3: Logan photo simply says “Supply.” However, several other Instagram users commented on the cryptic photo’s meaning. The image supposedly hints at the origin of X-23 (Laura Kinney).

Meanwhile, another user claimed the liquid substance resembles the serum that takes mutant powers away. Another commentator thought the injections could contain Logan’s healing serum.

However, according to Movieweb, there is a likely chance that the photo hints at X-23. The site referenced the post-credit scene in X-Men: Apocalypse. In it, a man appeared holding a vial containing Wolverine’s blood. Perhaps, the mutant’s blood is the source of X-23’s powers.

In the Marvel comics, X-23 is actually a clone of Wolverine. Sutter and his Weapon X team used a sample from the clawed mutant’s blood to create X-23. Initially, the team wanted to create another Wolverine.

However, they failed in their attempts to create another male clawed mutant. Instead, Sutter and his team succeeded in creating a female mutant. This is the origin of X-23. If the photo speaks for X-23’s birth, then the film is sticking to the character’s comicbook storyline.

Meanwhile, fans have already seen their first look at X-23 in the first trailer for Wolverine 3: Logan. The preview introduced her as the only remaining mutant aside from Logan. Professor Xavier gave Logan the task of protecting her from what seems like Sutter and his Weapon X team.
