X-23 question

Hey O-deck! So like many of you, I’m pretty pumped about the new Logan film, but I haven’t been following comics for some time so I had a question that maybe you can answer.

I realize this is pretty silly given the suspension of disbelief it takes to get into mutant superhero stories, but what I always loved about the X-series compared to other superheroes is that the powers were always somewhat grounded by a scientific explanation...even if that explanation what a bit of a streatch, it seemed “feasable.”


Anyway, the young X-23 in the film has claws, I assume these are adamantium like Wolverine. What happens when she gets older? Adamantium obviously doesn’t grow with her. Does she get new ones installed once she reaches a certain age? Do the comics ever address this?
