Marvel Previews the All-New Female Wolverine
The All-New, All-Different Marvel universe is coming, and bringing a lot of changes with it (if you couldn't tell from the name). Chief among those changes is the new identity of Wolverine, as Laura Kinney, formerly known as X-23, is now taking up the mantle and the claws:

X-23 is a female clone of Logan, and so has the same regenerative healing powers, superhuman strength, senses, speed, agility, and reflexes, not to mention adamantium-covered claws. She was created using a damaged copy of Logan's genome, in which the Y chromosome couldn't be salvaged, and was conditioned to be the perfect killing machine by the Weapon X program before she escaped to the Xavier Institute and joined the X-Men.

The All-New Wolverine series will be written by Tom Taylor and illustrated by David Lopez. The new series drops the reader in on the action immediately, eight months after the fall of Logan and well after Laura has taken over the Wolverine identity.

Opening quote
"Laura has been through so much but has come through all of it," Taylor said in a Marvel statement. "She's not unscathed by her early life, tragedies, and hardships but she hasn't let anything beat her down. This ferocious tenacity is one of the qualities that make her perfect to follow in the footsteps of Logan. I can't say enough good things about our stubborn, unstoppable carving machine."
