It's crazy, because X-Men is a huge category, full of inspiration just begging to be brought to the table, but I'm still stuck on Logan; it left me feeling raw, emotional, and vulnerable. Since my last recipe was inspired by the trio of Logan, Caliban, and Dr. Xavier, I wanted this one to be all about Laura, or X-23.
Raised in a lab, amongst a new generation of engineered mutants, Laura doesn't express any emotion aside from rage when we first meet her. So we get quiet and inexpressive, but we also get a child desperate for affection — especially from the hero she's read about in comic books, the man whose DNA made her, the closest thing she has to a father.
These Corn Flakes and Milk Squares are a nod to Laura, and the new generation of X-Men, finding their inner peace and their place in the world that doesn't yet know they exist.
