“you basically have a character who was born as an experiment to be a killing machine trying to have a somewhat normal life”
Doesn’t this also apply to Wolverine himself? Additionally, I love X-23 and I think she could have a badass movie, it would also undermine the ending of this film which essentially allows Wolverine to die a death satisfied that he has given his daughter/clone the ability to not have to live the life he was forced to live.
Logan didn’t find his family until about 100 years into his life, and by that point he was too world-weary to cherish it. Laura was able to have her family at birth and while she has already done terrible things, she still has a chance to persevere and not walk down that violent path.
