Nightcrawler will be leading a new X-Men team in WAY OF X, which will release in April. The series will be written by Si Spurrier and art by Bob Quinn!
From Marvel, here is what Spurrier said about the new series:
I should probably just tell a lie for the sake of a neat elevator pitch and say that WAY OF X is a story about the creation of a new mutant religion. But it’s not—not really. That’s kinda where it starts, for sure. Nightcrawler realises something’s wrong with the hearts and minds of mutantkind and sets out to fix it. But as he quickly discovers, this isn’t a job for priests and prayers… The question is, what do they have to become in order to fight it? Preachers? Cops? Executioners? Or something entirely new?
And here is what Quin said:
I’m incredibly excited that Marvel gave me the opportunity to launch a new X-Men series with Si,” Quinn says. “Nightcrawler is one of my favorite X-Men, and he along with the recent developments in the X-Men universe really gives us the opportunity to explore some pretty wild concepts and ideas. Bringing them to life is really a dream come true. Si is a great storyteller and this story gives X-Men fans something they’ve never seen before.”
I love me some Nightcrawler, and growing up, he was always such a cool character. Also, having Si Spurrier and Bob Quinn together to do WAY OF X was a great call. April is going to be a good month, that’s for sure.
