Nrama: You’re well-known for being party to introducing X-23, beginning with an episode of “X-Men: Evolution”. How did the character come into being, and what did her reception mean to you as a writer?
Yost: Craig Kyle, who was supervising X-Men Evolution at the time, created her before I entered the picture. He needed a way to get more Wolverine interacting with the kids, and that was his solution. Since adult Wolverine was already part of the show, he got another Wolverine, essentially.
I was just happy to be there. :) When he told me that she was crossing over into the comic universe, and that we were writing her comic origin, I was floored. It honestly changed pretty much everything for me. I owe Craig Kyle and X-23 a ton.
