Hooray! The return of Nightcrawler has been announced
! His return will be the first arc of the latest X-Book, Amazing X-Men
, where he summons the X-Men to the after-life to help battle his father, the demon Azazel. I hope that he sticks around after the Azazel arc. It would suck to tease his return, but leave him in the after-life when it's all done.
The new book will serve as a companion book to Wolverine and the X-Men
. Whereas WatXM will focus on the students, AXM will focus on the faculty being X-Men and super-heroes, rather than teachers. Newest X-Man-- Firestar! Given as she was an X-Man in Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends
all of those years ago, I'm surprised it took them this long.
I think that I'm down for this. The initial Nightcrawler arc, at the very least.
