Yesterday Marvel released a new Marvel NOW! teaser, it read “BAMF!” on it with the names Chris Claremount and Todd Nauck on it. Many speculated, and it wasn’t hard to guess, that Claremount was returning to the X-Men, but more specifically one of the most beloved X-Men, Nightcrawler! If you have been following Amazing X-Men, then you know that Nightcrawler is on his way back to the living.
This new ongoing series is scheduled to debut in April. The series will follow fan-favorite Kurt Wagner’s resurrection in the current arc of Amazing X-Men, and unfortunately, will also feature Wolverine. Not sure why Marvel feels the need to put Wolverine in every freaking book. Especially since both are already appearing together in Amazing X-Men.
I’m pretty excited about this series, been a fan of Nightcrawler since his time on the X-Men and later with Excalibur, and then the X-Men again. Nightcrawler #1 will be available at your local comic shop and digitally sometime in April. (Source: Newsarama & CBR)
