'X-23: Deadly Regenesis' #2 First Look Pits Laura Kinney Against a New Villain with an Old Grudge

In a special first look at 'X-23: Deadly Regenesis' #2, Laura Kinney goes up against Haymaker, an antagonist with ties to her violent past.

Laura Kinney's past just won't leave her alone.

In Erica Schultz and Edgar Salazar's X-23: DEADLY REGENESIS #1, Laura set out to find herself in a world that has tried to mold her into a weapon many times over. However, a selfless act led her to be identified by Kimura, her sadistic handler from the Facility that created her. Delighted by this discovery, Kimura sent Jordan Gastin, AKA Haymaker, to take Laura in. Unbeknownst to Laura, though, Haymaker has a connection to the violent past she so desperately wants to escape.

X-23: DEADLY REGENESIS #2 will show Laura's first encounter with Jordan as Haymaker—and it's about to get bloody. In a special first look at the issue, Laura squares up for a fight, her hands bloodied in the aftermath of a toxin that dampened her healing factor. As Haymaker charges her, she flashes back to her time at the Facility with Kimura, which leads her to put her claws away…until Haymaker knocks over a street lamp and she's forced to chop it up into smaller pieces to save some innocent bystanders, anyway!

See Laura face off with Haymaker in a special first look at X-23: DEADLY REGENESIS #2 below!
