A very Wolverine-ish story about shadowy organizations (Alchemax, as they are slowly becoming the evil scientists of the world) playing with Wolverine's genes to create super soldiers. Laura, however, is not trying to fill Logan's shoes so much as follow what he taught her back when they were together, and she manages to tackle things in a less violent (as pointed out by a lot of people she comes across) and yet still very familiar way.
Her first adventure manages to work in superscience (Pym style), magic (Strange style), and good old fashion claws vs private military action, as she tries to find a balance between what she was made to do and what she wants to be, and if you can't tell there's a lot of metaphors hidden in all the subtext of this book that make it a joy to pick through.
If I do have to leverage complaints: this is going to seem like a fairly tame beginning for her story, as there's no costumed villains running around (save an appearance so short it's more of a cameo despite having a nice fight to go with it) and most of the X-23 clones aren't too interesting outside of a couple of good scenes. However the sincere moments where we see inside the mind of our new yellow-and-blue sniktbub are good enough to elevate it above "average" and it does set up for an interesting aftermath following the events of this book (at least with the new characters and how they're going to fit into Laura's life).
The series does call back to some of X-23's history but besides for knowing what the stinger means (someone familiar shows up) and what the various pictures that are a little more vague that happen in a splash page flashback are, you don't really need to be too familiar with Laura to read this one and enjoy it.
So in the end it's not a must-have book, but it's not a terrible one either, and there's just enough in here to really dig into.
