Nightcrawler Returns In “X-Termination”


Nightcrawler has always been my favorite “X-Men” character, and I’ve missed him so over the past few years. Today, Marvel released the teaser image below of the teleporting mutant duking it out with Wolverine. The image came with the words, “World’s Collide,” which leads me to believe we won’t be getting the classic version of Nightcrawler. As CBR points out, “In recent years, teases for the character’s return yielded the return instead of the “Age of Apocalypse” universe”. Marvel said very little so it’s unsure whether Nightcrawler will show up in AoA, or something else entirely. Chances are it’s going to piss someone off anyway.

    What’s your favorite version of Wagner? The happy go-lucky swashbuckler or the mopey religious one?

    Either way, have you ever seen Max Landis’ short “The Death of Superman?” He explains how the Doomsday saga actually killed death in comics (honestly, somethign that saddens me). This news keeps up that trend of characters not staying dead (at least Bucky was down and out for some-60 years).

      I’m partial to both versions actually. Just not the one from the movie. Max Landis’ short is brilliantly funny and all too true. Death in comics will never really be death, but that’s how the medium is now so I guess we can only embrace it.

    Young Landis’ dissertation certainly has merit but at the same time seems to suck all the fun out of the genre. At the end of the day it is entertainment after all, and while I wouldn’t (and don’t) read every re-invented character that they throw into a book, what’s the harm if I enjoy a couple of these from time to time. If it’s well thought out and executed I’m in.

      Hey man, if you love something, especially comics, you gotta be willing to laugh at the inherent ridiculousness of it. You gotta admit, the reign of superman is hilarious when considered rationally.
