The Return of Nightcrawler in “Amazing X-Men #1”

This November, after the events of X-Men Battle of the Atom, Wolverine will lead a team in a hunt for Nightcrawler’s soul in a new series by Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness called Amazing X-Men. Joining Wolverine on his quest to save the soul of the blue X-Man that we haven’t seen since X-Men: Second Coming (unless you count the alternate dimension Nightcrawler in Rick Remender’s and Jerome Opeña’s Uncanny X-Force) will be Storm, Beast, and Ice Man, just to name a few. As is always the case, things aren’t going to be as easy as the X-Men expected. Couldn’t this just be a suicide mission with the X-Men risking one life, or several, for another?

“Get ready for the most epic book at Marvel, where every arc is an event!” said senior editor Nick Lowe.

With the series described like that and fantastic art by Ed McGuinness, whose amazing wraparound cover you can check out below, this series promises to be something worth picking up.

Nightcrawler Returns in “Amazing X-Men #1!”

In the wake of the Battle of the Atom, the X-Men’s greatest assemble for a mission beyond the grave!

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 number one Ed McGuinness’s incredible first X-Men book!”

As deadly forces await, will the Amazing X-Men’s first mission also be their last? Find out this October, as Wolverine and his new team test just far they’re willing to go to for a friend in “Amazing X-Men #1!”
