COMICS: Marvel Teases "X-Termination" As Worlds Collide In Mysterious 2013 Event

AoA Nightcrawler recently betrayed Wolverine and his team in the pages of Rick Remender's Uncanny X-Force, but it now looks as if that wasn't the end of the story! Marvel has released the following teaser image for "X-Termination" featuring a battle between Wolverine and the traitor!

There's no details on a creative team or what series that "X-Termination" will occur in, but we DO know that it will be released next March. As you can see from the teaser image below (accompanied only by "World collide." on, the 616 version of Wolverine is battling the Age of Apocalypse Nightcrawler, and they're certainly not pulling any punches! Readers of Rick Remender's Uncanny X-Force will know that the alternate version of Kurt Wagner recently betrayed Logan's team in order to get his revenge of the Blob and escaped with his "mother", Mystique. Sound off with your thoughts and theories in the usual place and stay tuned for further details!

I know he is now looking in the entertainment business, but if Marvel can bring back Ed Brubaker as the writer, that would be awesome.

liking the art :) I'm behind on my x-men reading how come the AOA Nightcrawler is in the 616 universe?
GLprime2814 - 11/26/2012, 12:55 PM
@theDpool haven't missed out on much, the xbooks have been average at best.
TheDpool - 11/26/2012, 1:03 PM
@GLprime Yeah I have a flick through the TPB's and never really impressed there are that many X-men now that I cant keep up.
IronManny819 - 11/26/2012, 1:31 PM
AH, GODDAMMIT! They're gonna end up killing my favorite UXF member. :(
SpideyQuad - 11/26/2012, 1:56 PM
My only hope is that they keep everyone in character and not just go for the shock value.
SpideyQuad - 11/26/2012, 1:57 PM
Like wonder man

@ TheDpool

He came back during Uncanny X-Force's "Dark Angel" saga. UXF went to the AoA universe to acquire a celestial seed to rid the Apocalypse presence from Archangel. Some of the surviving AoA guys came back temporarily to help and AoA Kurt remained behind to kill the bad AoA guys who came back.

On a side note, the biggest threat to the AoA universe is in the AoA universe, he should just go back.

I feel like this is gonna be another Loeb four issue mini
marvel72 - 11/26/2012, 2:38 PM
i would love to see hickman write the x-men books.
USAgent - 11/26/2012, 2:41 PM
Jeff Loeb is a hack, Marvel should get rid of his worthless ass
OtakuPapi - 11/26/2012, 2:44 PM
Wolvie needs the shoulder pads! Just doesn't look right. But i really hope he puts the hurt on AOA NightCrawler he betray X-Force and deserve ever bit of vengeance Wolvie deals him

Could Nightcrawler teleport Wolverine's skeleton out of his body? That would be fun to see...
fortycals - 11/26/2012, 3:27 PM
I dont think AoA Kurt was that wrong really. He let it be known when he decided stay that the only reason why he was staying was to kill the AoA baddies. He also let it be known 48 hours style that "we aint brothers, we aint partners, and we aint friends" very early on. UXF was supposed to help him get his enemies but they spent most of the time fighting their own battles. They did help him get AoA iceman, but it was only a matter of time before he chose his mission over the team. This was all forshadowed when he joined. Plus this was AoA Kurt who hated what AoA Logan had become. Even though it is not the same logan, stuff like that carries over.
fortycals - 11/26/2012, 3:31 PM
Also AoA Kurt is bad ass. Wolvie should have some major problems dealing with AoA kurt.

I love Nightcrawler dearly, but I dont think the 616 version should ever come back. Second coming was crazy good, and Kurt went out like a G. Him coming back would cheapen his sacrifice.

that's some pretty shitty artwork there. some real 'rob liefeld' ignorance of structure & execution going on. especially the exit area where the sword comes out of logans arm? anybody else seeing this?
RyGoR - 11/26/2012, 6:37 PM
Isn't Age of Ultron starting in March as well? Marvel Universe is in for some hurt I tell ya! haha
yourdaddy - 11/26/2012, 7:36 PM
yeah, bring back the kurt already
jimoakley666 - 11/27/2012, 3:32 AM
Wow. Two dead Nightcrawlers is a lot of dead Nightcrawlers. Wolverine will be done killing the [frick] out of AoA Kurt in all of 5 minutes.
jimoakley666 - 11/27/2012, 3:34 AM
Also, that artwork is spot on gorgeous. Nightcrawler looks classic Austin / Byrne and Wolverine looks great. Don't know what's going on with the red / pink eyes though.
fortycals - 11/27/2012, 3:58 AM
Though wolvie will probably win, AoA kurt is bad ass. He has been known to teleport heads from bodies. He has looser morals than 616 Kurt. Wolvie might have some troubles when it comes to this kurt, even though everyone knows who is going to win in the end.
xstryker - 11/27/2012, 8:42 AM

After letting Sabretooth walk away because "revenge ain't worth it" in the latest issue of UXF, this only makes sense if AoA Kurt is the one who starts the fight.
jimoakley666 - 11/27/2012, 9:29 AM
@fortycals - Yeah, but still... Nightcrawler would teleport onto Wolverine's back, grab hold of his head and wonder why his own arms are no longer attached to his torso.
Fastestmanalive - 11/27/2012, 10:16 AM
That Nightcrawler costume is just horrible.
fortycals - 11/27/2012, 10:17 AM
@ jimoakley
Not saying that Kurt would win, just saying it wouldnt be easy for wolvie. Wolverine is to popular to really lose, but he should have a hard time with AoA Kurt. For one wolvie's feelings for 616 kurt would effect him. While AoA kurt doesnt share that same bond with Wolvie's AoA counterpart. AoA kurt has no problem with killing. Kurt has better agility/speed. This fight would be alot harder for wolvie than it would seem on the surface.
