A clone of Wolverine, X-23 (Laura Kinney) possesses most of his mutant powers. However, since she is still in her teens, some of her powers aren't as developed as those of Wolverine. Like Wolverine, X-23's primary mutant power is an accelerated healing factor that enables her to regenerate damaged or destroyed tissue with far greater speed and efficiency than an ordinary human. She is capable of fully healing injuries resulting in massive tissue damage and blood loss such as multiple bullet wounds, slash wounds, and puncture wounds within a matter of minutes. Her healing factor is developed to such a degree, she is capable of reattaching severed limbs, such as a hand. It is unclear, however, if she is actually capable of regrowing severed limbs or missing organs.

I don't know too much about X-23. She was well "after my time" when I followed the X-Men comics. But I do know what Rule 63 is... and this might be one of the most shameless examples of Rule 63. To be perfectly honest, I don't find X-23 to be very interesting. Her concept and storyline isn't terrible, but visually... she's mostly bland, and pales in comparison to many of the old school X-Men that I know and love. I mean, they could've just as easily made a female Cyclops with the same boring outfit. :/ 

Couldn't they have given her a more interesting costume? I find it funny that her outfit is strikingly similar to Trish's... which is ironic, since they both debuted in the same game fighting game (and both bore me visually). lol. In fairness, her moveset isn't terrible in MVC3, but she's the definition of boring when compared to some of my favorite heroines from MVC2. I'give Marvel the benefit of the doubt that I'd like X-23 more if I read some comics she appears in. Even so, she's no Rogue or Psylocke... that's for damn sure.
