COMICS: NIGHTCRAWLER Returns For His Own Ongoing Series From Chris Claremont
We figured as much after that "BAMF" teaser from Marvel last night, but now it's been confirmed that one of the most popular mutant characters of all time will indeed be taking the lead in his own ongoing...along with Wolverine of course! Check out some artwork after the jump.
Kurt Wagner fans rejoice; the fuzzy elf returns with an ongoing series from Chris Claremont and Todd Nauck. Apparently this series was originally conceived as the next version of X-Men: Legacy, (hence the cover below) but the overwhelmingly positive fan reaction to Nightcrawler's recent return led to the change. Here is some artwork, followed by Claremont's thoughts on the character.
“He’s smart, tough, creative [and] daring, with an instinctive understanding of people and situations. He has a wicked sense of humor and a devastating charm. As his body’s designed well outside the box of human experience, so too are his thought processes. His ‘normal’ is revolutionary to most people; throw him a problem, he’ll find a way to solve it that’s unique to him. He quite simply is the kind of man [who] others trust; to know him is to have faith in him.”
Nightcrawler #1 is coming in April, 2014.
