Here is something to take into account(as far as I know); at this point in their lives, neither wants to kill the other.

Cassandra Cain is THE badass, all other badasses strive to be as badass as Cassandra Cain, Cassandra Cain is so badass that whenever she speaks, Tim Drake gets kicked in the nuts, whenever she speaks, Batman gets laid, whenever she speaks, Stephanie Brown shuts the Hell up, whenever she speaks Jason Todd rethinks his life choices, Cassandra Cain is badass incarnate

Okay, stop pissing your pants with this. BOTH are trained assassins, and both have proven to be VERY lethal, BUT, Cassandra WOULD have an advantage with her body reading. Unless X-23 can recover from throat slitting, neck snapping, or anything else fatal, I give it to Cass.

Keep in mind ALL martial artists learn to react to their opponent's body language (I do this fencing longsword. If you have to stop and THINK about what you're opponent is doing and how to react to it, you're dead). Even allowing that Cass's is trained to a level above that of the average martial artist, it's not like it's a skill Laura doesn't possess at all. And even if Cass can read what Laura's initial move is, this is still assuming that Laura doesn't, y'know, throw a FEINT. In martial arts feints are still executed as real attacks (because if your opponent DOESN'T respond you've just wasted a free attack). This means Cass has to read EVERYTHING, and because she's not precog she has to do it on the fly and respond to each individual movement, along with the associated delays in processing what she's seeing and her own reaction time.

Which is, y'know, exactly what ALL martial artists do.

Ultimately, Cass's "body reading" is probably a comic writer thinking he's doing something smart and creative, without having done any research into ACTUAL martial arts at all, and rightfully coming across as ridiculous to anyone who ACTUALLY knows about it (I have this feeling all the time when I look at DnD's combat rules...)

Considering she has a faster healing factor then Wolverine, your counter argument agains't Cassandra is invalid. X-23 simply has the upper hand here.

Still, I do agree that there shouldn't be any more bickering on who would win.

I'd really like to see this as a Death Battle. I think Cass has more of a chance than she's given credit. I mean come on, a trained assassin who was also Batman's sidekick. That alone makes it worth the watch, but she has superhuman qualifies as well, so it would be interesting if not sexy >.>

And X-23 is a trained assassin who was also Wolverine's sidekick at one point. That alone makes her just as worthy as Cassandra.

Cass has the advantage to read body language.

Laura has the advantage to heal super fast.

It would be a very ineteresting battle to the death indeed. But I would still root for X-23, because of her healing factor, and simply because she's my favorite Marvel character. Cass on the other hand, is an okay character, but she never stood up for me. So I couldn't really care less about her, honestly.

I love you just for giving respect! Thank you. I just recently got into DC, and was never a big Marvel girl cept for spidey and the women of Marvel. They all look delicious. Back to the two at hand, I'm solidly behind Cassie, although Laura would probably win if she's the one with more stamina, because it'd most likely boil down to just that. Either way, they'd be a seriously lethal team. If not the most lethal in history.

From what I understand, Laura's Healing Factor gives her:

Accelerated healing (duh)
Enhanced senses (sight, hearing, smell, etc.)
Enhanced reflexes/reaction time
Increased stamina (her body doesn't build up fatigue toxins at the same rate as a normal person)
Limited enhanced strength (though not to the same degree as Logan's since she doesn't have a full adamantium skeleton)
Limited enhanced speed

She has WAY more than that. Her "field test" alone involved the slaughter of a good couple dozen people (most were unarmed: politicians, newspeople and their families, but there were a number of armed security personnel). She certainly killed more than that just destroying the Facility installation where she was bred when Sarah Kinney set her loose, and I think it's implied her list of TARGETS enters the triple digits. This isn't even getting into collateral damage (witnesses, families, etc.) and the mooks and other security personnel she killed in the process. Also, many of her targets were people like Fade, who were incredibly dangerous in their own right. I don't think there's ever been an explicit tally given, she's without question killed into the high hundreds of people, if not over a thousand.

Remember, Laura was SUCH a dangerous threat that Captain freakin' America PERSONALLY tracked her down.

I don't even know who Cassie is. But if you look at it from a realistic point, it would be obvious that X-23 would win.

I mean, c'mon, she's a trained expert assassin. You're very much underestimating X-23. And what is Cassie, really? A heroin who relies on gadgets? I think it's fairly clear who would honestly win here.

But really, it doesn't matter whoever would win anyway. This drawing wasn't to showcase who the superior fighter is, it's simply to capture the moment and tension agains't the two.

Black Bat(Cassandra Cain) is also a trained assassin. She's also able to read body language the way you and I read a book. She can practically read minds. Plus the fact Batman himself said she can take him out in a straight up fight, and Bats is considered one of the best martial artists in comics. So unless the fight is in a pitch-black room. For me, Cassie wins.

That sounds way too sci fi-ish and stupid. And it doesn´t make X-23 any less of an vaild assassin. X-23 has eqally the strength, life long experience and agility to win. I wouldn't have minded you rooting for cassie if you didn't made X-23 sound like an amatuer.

''She's gonna get hurt.'' - Really? I doubt she would get hurt, since she can smell danger and has healing regeneration, just like Wolverine. For gods sake, she even cutted off her entire arm at one point without even screaming in pain. Did Cassie ever do that? No? Then that once again proves X-23 would win over her.

You can't let you're matter of preference decide who would win. Like Cassie more all you want, but X-23 would still be able to kill her with little trouble.

But again, this argument is pointless as hell. They're from two different universes. Not like they are ever going to meet face to face anyway.

Do you know why X-23 will win? Because she's X-23.

I have no idea who ''Black Bat'' even is. Must be some desperate random last resort idea to create a new character. FYI, X-23 is an trained expert assassin, so is this ''Black Bat'' a trained expert assassin? No? Then it's already clear who would win.

Yes it does. Being good in martial arts is a entriely different thing then being good in assassinations.

Also, why are you even jumping in someone's conversation like that? I don't recall asking you for your opinion.
