New X-Men Cosplay: X-23 (Nadyasonika) Cosplay 15 MAY 2014

Mexican industrial design student, costume designer and maker, cosplayer, model, and gamer Nadya Anton is perhaps better known by her online handle Nadyasonika. For this particular cosplay outing she brings to life the wickedly effective mutant X-23!

Cloned from a damaged copy of Wolverine’s genome, X-23 was created to be the perfect killing machine. For years, she proved herself a notable assassin, though a series of tragedies eventually led her to Wolverine and the X-Men, with whom she now seeks to turn her life around.

X-23 is a female clone created from Wolverine’s genetic material. Consequently, her mutant powers are similar to his. Like Wolverine, X-23’s primary mutant ability is an accelerated healing factor that allows her to regenerate damaged or destroyed tissues with far greater speed and efficiency than an ordinary human. Injuries such as gunshot wounds, slashes, and puncture wounds completely heal within a matter of minutes. Her healing factor is developed to such a degree that she can reattach severed limbs. She has also been shown to be able to regrow limbs.

The effects of her accelerated healing powers extend to her body’s immune system, rendering her immune to disease and infection. She is also immune to most drugs and toxins, although she can be affected by certain drugs if given sufficient dosage.

X-23’s mutant healing factor heightened her physical senses, strength, speed, agility, reflexes/reactions, coordination, balance, endurance to superhuman levels. Like Wolverine, X-23 possesses retractable claws sheathed within her forearms (though unlike Wolverine, she only sports two claws). She releases the claws through the tissue of her knuckles, leaving small wounds which are healed by her healing factor.

She also possesses a single, retractable claw housed within each foot. Although her skeletal structure wasn’t fused with adamantium like Wolverine’s was, her claws were all extracted, coated and then re-inserted, meaning that she comes with the same cutting power as the original.

Born and raised in captivity, X-23 has been trained to become a living weapon. She is highly trained in the use of long range weapons and explosives and is a formidable hand-to-hand combatant, with intensive training in numerous armed and unarmed martial arts techniques. She has also been subjected to conditioning in which a specific “trigger scent” has been used to send her into a berserker rage, killing anything in sight; Emma Frost is unsure if this will ever be fully suppressed.

She is also highly educated and so far has displayed that she is fluent in French and Japanese.
