Rumor has it, based on the briefest of teases after the credits run in new X-Men: Apocalypse movie, that Laura Kinney is coming to the X-Men franchise — which brings us to the point where you now think to yourself: “Hmmmm, who is Laura Kinney and, oh yeah, remind me why I care?”
Laura Kinney, aka X-23, is the fictional character who turned my $83 alternative assets investment last year into something now worth upward of $1,000 — a phenomenal return in just a year.
She’s the female version of Wolverine, by far the most popular of the X-Men characters. The fact that X-23 is likely to show up in the next X-Men movie sent collectors scurrying for the comic book in which Laura Kinney first made an appearance. That book was NYX issue #3, published in February 2004.
