He was also a production assistant on Invasion America and Toonsylvania. He was part of the creative team on Marvel Studios films Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk as well as writing Thor: Ragnarok.
Kyle came up with the backstory for the character, writing a massive document that went into a great amount of detail. He did research into genetics and gender variation in the animal kingdom to get the character right.
Six months later, X-23 would be formally introduced into the comics with NYX #3 and is one of the most popular mutant characters. In the comics, it is explained she is female because the Y chromosome that was recovered was too damaged to make a male. She also took on the name Laura Kinney because of the doctor who created her, became the surrogate mother, and raised her. She eventually went on to take the mantle of Wolverine after he was killed.
