Powers/Abilities: Gabby Kinney is a clone sister of Laura Kinney. Like her Earth-616 counterpart, she is an excellent hand-to-hand combatant and has a remarkable regenerative healing factor capable of rapidly healing otherwise lethal wounds; furthermore, she is immune to pain (due to nanites in her bloodstream), she has acute senses and has years of stealth training. Unlike her Earth-616 counterpart, she is now an adult and wears body-mesh armor composed of Stark-grade graphene and Wakandan Vibranium. This suit is armed with a short single laser claw mounted in the middle knuckle of each hand, although she retains use of a single retractable bone claw that unsheathes at the same spot. Her suit also has an internal communications device. She has a distinctive short haircut with a "W" shaved at the back and enduring scars over her eyes. She still maintains a playful innocence and optimism.

Height: 5'1"

(All-New Wolverine#33 (fb) - BTS) - Gabby Kinney appears to have a similar history to that of her Earth-616 counterpart, being a clone sister of Laura Kinney, herself a female clone of Wolverine (Logan). Initially trained to kill, she freed herself of programming and adopted the codename Honey Badger as a heroic adventurer.

(All-New Wolverine#33 (fb)) - The Doom World War saw an army of villains commanded by Dr. Doom, who led a coordinated attack on heroes in an effort to to take over the world. Gabby, as Honey Badger, defended Laura (as Wolverine) from the Lizard as she cradled Hellion, fallen in battle.

(All-New Wolverine#33 (fb) - BTS) - Eventually, the heroes won and peace reigned across the world, with the despotic Dr. Doom shuttered in his kingdom of Latveria. Occasional skirmishes were orchestrated by Doom using villains he had previously captured.

   In one encounter, Thanos stepped on Gabby, and she had to be scooped up in jars, eventually recovering.

   In time, Gabby married a man named Taylor and had two sons, Logan and Wade.

   Gabby took on the mantle of Wolverine once Laura retired from the role and wore and advanced suit of armor that incorporated laser claws that could cleave through almost anything.

   Laura developed a painful degenerative condition linked to her cloning, and secretly had Gabby and her children tested; Gabby and her family were clear.

(All-New Wolverine#33) - In her advanced Wolverine costume, Gabby confronted a Latverian gun-runner selling advanced weaponry to an old Madripoori woman, but was shot point blank. Surprised at its lethality, she recovered quickly and organized a meeting with her clone sister for dinner. Later, Gabby mischievously bowed and the sisters bantered, but was stunned to learn that Laura was dying from a unique degenerative condition. Gabby checked briefly on her pet, Jonathan the Wolverine (now with his own litter), and agreed to help her sister in her final mission to kill the last villain, Dr. Doom, and save their sister, Bellona.

(All-New Wolverine#33 (fb) - BTS) - Concerned how the mission against Doom would go, Gabby called in help from friends Captain Marvel (Danvers) and Hawkeye (Bishop).

(All-New Wolverine#33) - Gabby and Laura, along with S.H.I.E.L.D. leader Maria Hill, arrived at the almost impenetrable Doom Dome, a force field surrounding Latveria.

(All-New Wolverine#34) - Joined by Captain Marvel and Hawkeye (and secretly the tiny Wasp), the small team entered Latveria via an underwater passage, only to find external technology and communications no longer functioned under the Doom Dome (which also blocked out sunlight). Soon inside the citadel, they were discovered out by blanket surveillance and oversized Doombots were dispatched against them. The Doombots were quickly overwhelmed, with the Wasp, permanently shrunk,  having taken over a Doombot in the attack, although Hill was lethally wounded.

(All-New Wolverine#35 (fb)) - The team followed Laura's lead to combine stealth and destruction on Doom's castle, with Gabby (Laura now dubbing her Honey Badger), Hawkeye and Wasp/"Waspbot" directed to free any surviving prisoners while Laura and Captain Marvel would smash Doom's throne room. But Captain Marvel was knocked into the lower levels. While Laura eventually killed Doom, Gabby and her teammates released prisoners including Bellona, Daredevil, Thor, Rocket, Spider-Man (Miles Morales) and a female Captain America. Reaching the throne room, Gabby rushed to the near-dead Laura.

(All-New Wolverine#35) - Laura began to recover and told Wasp to deactivate the Doom Dome to let sunshine back into Latveria. Despite Laura's melodramatic willingness to surrender to death now that the world had been made a better place, Gabby refused to give up hope and promised to seek out every scientist, alien, magician, witch and god they knew to help Laura beat her condition.



Comments: Gabby Kinney originally created by Tom Taylor (writer), David Lopez (pencils), David Navarrot (inks). Earth-18366 version adapted by Tom Taylor (writer), Ramon Rosanas (pencils & inks).

Interestingly, in the opening story Gabby has the mantle of Wolverine, but in Laura's (final?) mission in Latveria, Laura refers to Gabby as Honey Badger. Gabby doesn't question this as Laura displays strong leadership in this storyline.

It wouldn't surprise me if the old Madripoori woman buying the Latverian guns was Tyger Tiger...

I can't be sure of the point of divergence for Earth-18366 (will Laura-616 eventually have the same degenerative condition?), but the original Wolverine (Logan) is dead, with Laura initially wearing that mantle. On this Earth, Doom's manipulations eventually led to him pooling the nefarious talents of various super-powered villains in a coordinated surprise attack against the heroes, much like that orchestrated in the "Old Man Logan" storyline, hence the "Old Woman Laura" tag for this story arc, but with that engaging Tom Taylor twist.

The extended relatives from her original clone pool are assumed.

Her stats are derived from her clone sister, Laura (without Adamantium claws).

Profile by Grendel Prime.

Wolverine (Gabby Kinney) of Earth-18366 has no known connections to:


Bellona of Earth-18366 is similar to her Earth-616 counterpart. She is a sister clone of Laura Kinney (and thus Gabby Kinney too). Bellona was generated, trained and programmed to kill on command. One such mission led her to kill over 30 people and she was incarcerated by S.H.I.E.L.D. aboard a maximum-security Helicarrier prison, but this was hijacked via a portal by Dr. Doom and he kept her in Latveria. Despite Bellona's warnings, Doom used her as bait to get Laura Kinney to Latveria so that he could take over Laura's body in pursuit of immortality, unaware that Laura was secretly dying. While Laura battled Doom, Gabby found and freed the remaining imprisoned heroes, and they walked out in a newly liberated Latveria.
