In the movie Logan, a character gets introduced called X-24, a mutant weapon created by Transigen, who is actually

a juiced-up fresh clone of Logan himself.

What I'm interested to know is, is X-24 a cyborg or bionic? excluding his "skeleton"

I ask this because there was a scene where X-24 attacks the Munson's house, and Dr. Rice and Donald Pierce were watching X-24's viewpoint from the surveillance van. But I can't see anything about being a cyborg and there's no shared/camera vision listed in his abilities page.

    What definition of cyborg are you using?

  • @CreationEdge My understanding of a Cyborg is a mixed human/robot creature. Also, the main thing I'm interested in is how Dr. Rice and Pierce were able to see what X-24 was seeing, in what seemed to me a POV feed.

  • So, whether or not there are more cybernetics to him than just contact lenses with cameras?

  • There were a couple comments in the movie that made me wonder this, too. Like, "making something without a soul" and "he only listens to you" which made him seem more robotic, yet he seemed to be grown. And he's clearly meant to be an allusion to Albert (clicking might be a spoiler, beware!), but didn't seem terribly robotic. I'm hoping there's some director's commentary out there.

  • @Creation Agreed, there isn't much to go on, except the whole POV stuff. I don't personally think he was cybernetic/bionic, I just need facts :)

No, X-24 is not bionic in any way (except for his Adamantium skeleton)

I have just re-read the official screenplay for the movie and can confirm that X-24 is just a clone of The Wolverine (Logan). The writers mention that 'Bad Logan' is a copy of Logan, and later point out that it's a bodycam that we see the feed through.

Here are the relevant parts:

Charles LOOKS UP FROM HIS WOUND, blood coming. He tries to
reach a bedside light and succeeds as again-- THE CLAWS
PLUNGE INTO HIS CHEST. IN THE LIGHT WE SEE -- THIS IS A
PERFECT DOUBLE OF LOGAN.

For simplicity’s sake, let’s call this creature BAD LOGAN.
He will also be referenced as “X-24”, his model number. He
is a younger, stronger, clone of The Wolverine. Feral, he
moves in a slight crouch. He is not the absence of emotion
but rather, the presence of it, most noticeably, rage.

-Logan, Screenplay (Final Shooting Draft), Frank, S., Mangold, J., and Green, M., 2019.

and later:

A METALLIC THWACK as the bat connects with Bad Logan’s head,
but the clone hardly registers the impact AS WE CUT TO :

INT. ALKALI COMMAND VEHICLE -- COUNTRY ROAD -- CONTINUOUS

The tinny transmitted sounds of the violence play off screen
as we look at the Munson farmhouse a ways off through a
windshield. PAN TO REVEAL--

WE'RE IN THE ALKALI COMMAND VEHICLE. PIERCE AND DR. RICE are
riveted to a feed from Bad Logan’s bodycam.
Ibid.

In the final movie it's a little bit difficult to see any bodycam present, which is why it confused me originally:

  • Not directly relevant to the question, but X-24 is also notable because, in scenes where he and Logan are present, he's apparently entirely digital, which I certainly did not notice.
