Logan is making waves all over the world and it is the best X-Men movie ever! We saw X-23 on the big screen for the first time, Nerdist’s Kyle Hill breaks down the scientific reasons why X-23’s claws are lethal than Wolverine’s.
Laura Kinney, a.k.a. X-23, was created from Wolverine’s DNA. She shares every bit of Wolverine’s mutant genetics, which means she has an enhanced healing factor, bone claws beside covered in indestructible Adamantium, an attitude problem. One of the huge difference between the two characters is that X-23 has two claws on her hands and Logan has three.
According to science, this one difference makes her more deadly. Hill explains:
“I’m taking a swipe at the true cutting power of both Wolverine and X-23. I argue that because of how knives, blades, and claws cut and pierce in the first place — applying large forces over very small areas — attacking an enemy with two claws would work out better than attacking with three.”
