Is This All-New All-Different Wolverine? Or Orphan Black? (SPOILERS)

Orphan Black is a Canadian TV show about someone who discovers that they are a clone, and what that discovery leads to.


All-New All-Different Wolverine features, Leah, X-23, a clone of Wolverine. And now that Wolverine is dead, wrapped in adamantium, she has taken on the cowl in his memory.



And yes, as All-New All-Different Avengers #1 points out today, she's awesome. But her own new comic book series also out today, it seems to have taken on a greater similarity. And not just in the physical appearances of the lead characters, either.


In Orphan Black, the main character Sarah Manning discovers the dead body of someone who looks just like her. And discovers that she is but one of a number of clones of the same person, all living out their very different, distinct lives.


Whereas in All-New All-Different Wolverine?


Bingo. And a similar mission too…
