Over the past year, X-Men Legends has given some of the greatest X-Men creators in history the chance to revisit their classic runs with revelatory new tales that have astounded and delighted fans. 

Next February, however, sh*t is about to get real as Chris Claremont, the writer behind the franchise’s most influential works, will make his mark on the series in X-Men Legends #12. His long-awaited debut on the title will see the writer step back into his unparalleled run on Uncanny X-Men in a story set before the start of another one of his iconic works: Excalibur

Teaming up with popular X-Men artist Scot Eaton, the groundbreaking writer will pen an all-new tale centred around the legendary characters he created and defined including Nightcrawler, Kitty Pryde, Mystique, and Destiny. Set during the aftermath of "Fall of the Mutants," the X-Men are believed dead and Mystique is seeking revenge on Forge for his role in Rogue's demise. 

However, in order to stop her partner from making a grave mistake, Destiny will have to recruit Nightcrawler and Shadowcat who, injured as they are, must dig deep to find new strength and do what is right as the last X-Men standing. 

"It’s always fun wandering back along existing pathways and especially having the opportunity to fill in a couple of nifty gaps that were initially skipped over along the way - closing off one significant story-arc and lighting the fire that ignites the series that follows," Claremont said. "Talk about a treat!"
