Synopsis: X-23 continues to find the missing geneticist, while Gabby pesters her about finding out their birthday. Meanwhile, they Stepford Cuckoos-who are also clones-have their birthday all figured out, but they have a dilemma with their sister’s mortality.
What You’ll Need To Know: X-23 has had her run as Wolverine, and she did an awesome job at it. Logan is returning as Wolverine, so she is just working with Gabby and the rest of the X-Men. The first issue starts with Laura’s birthday, which she does not want to acknowledge, to her it is just another day. She went through too much pain before to be excited.
In This Issue: Let’s just say Laura has bigger problems to deal with than her birthday! She has been suspicious of the Cuckoos, well since they’re weird as hell. The people who kidnapped Dr. Marks are closer than she thinks. Of course, it’s the Cuckoos. We saw them dealing with their other 2 sisters, who are somehow still alive but withering away. They appear decrepit and in need of a cure. The Cuckoos discover one of their sisters has passed overnight, but we all saw that coming from the last book. That causes them to further their plan. They already have a geneticist; why do they need Gabby?
