X-23’s Misadventures in Babysitting Begin in ‘X-23′ #17 [Preview]
On sale this week from Marvel Comics is X-23 #17, which as you can see from the cover detail above is an homage to the fan-favorite 1980s film, Adventures in Babysitting. Written by Marjorie Liu and featuring artwork by Sana Takeda, this issue finds X-23 killing some time by taking a babysitting gig for none other than Future Foundation leaders Reed Richards and Sue Storm, who’re off to enjoy a rare night on the town. Will Franklin and Valeria be too much for the teenage mutant? Probably. Will they meet Thor in the end, like in the film? Probably not (he’s dead). Will they meet Beta Ray Bill? Let’s hope so.
An offer to join Wolverine collides with an offer from the FF and X-23 is forced to decide if she wants to continue her life as an assassin or take a break and see what it’s like to be a regular teenager.
