When the first trailer for Logan was released last week, many speculated that the young mutant in the film is Laura Kinney, a.k.a. Laura Kinney. Now, the film's official Instagram page revealed that Laura is the name of the character played by the young actress Dafne Keen.

X-23 first appeared in the animated series X-Men: Evolution. She made her comic debut in 2004 in the series NYX, but her origin wasn't explained until her mini-series titled X-23. She is a female clone-daughter of Wolverine, and the product of the top secret program. The first twenty-two attempts of Wolverine's cloning failed, but the twenty-third attempt was a success, hence X-23. In 2015, X-23 succeeded her "father" in adopting the costume and name of Wolverine in the series, All-New Wolverine. She ultimately became a member of the X-Force.

Logan is set to release in theaters on March 3, 2017.
