Nightcrawler Returns in AMAZING X-MEN #1!

We knew it had to happen. It's about time!

Nightcrawler has long been a beloved character. He had a noble death protecting Hope Summers during Second Coming. Some may cry foul with his return but we're talking comic books. We all knew he'd have to come back eventually. He's been dead since 2010. Having Kurt back is a good thing even if it's unfortunate it slightly negates his previous sacrifice. It's still something he might have to live or deal with, especially considering his religious background.

Marvel has revealed his return in a new X-Men series but also check out Firestar in the image below.

This November, Wolverine leads the charge for the soul of Nightcrawler in Amazing X-Men #1, a bombastic new series from superstar writer Jason Aaron and blockbuster artist Ed McGuinness!

When Nightcrawler sacrificed his life to protect mutantkind in the cataclysmic Second Coming, a hole was left in the X-Men’s rank that has never been filled. Not a day goes by when any of the X-Men does not mourn the “heart and soul” of the their family—and now they’re going to do something about it!

“Nightcrawler has always been my favorite X-Man, so I've been planning this story for years now, going all the way back to Wolverine and the X-Men #1,” explained Aaron. “I'm thrilled to be bringing Nightcrawler back to the forefront of the Marvel Universe. Of course it may not be much fun for the X-Men, once they realize what they'll have to go through to rescue their friend.”

With Wolverine at the helm, Storm, Beast, Ice Man and more journey into the unknown for their greatest ally!

“Get ready for the most epic book at Marvel, where every arc is an event!” said senior editor Nick Lowe. “X-Fans know Jason Aaron, but I can't wait until they see Nightcrawler fan #1 Ed McGuinness' incredible first X-Men book!”
