First Look: AMAZING X-MEN #1 - The Return of Nightcrawler

We knew it was coming. It was announced over the summer. Now we'll finally get to see it happen.

Back in July, Marvel announced the return of Nightcrawler in the upcoming AMAZING X-MEN #1. If you've been reading WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN, more specifically, issue #35, you caught a glimpse of the fuzzy elf.

Marvel has just released a first look at the new AMAZING X-MEN series.

What would you do to save a fallen friend? This November, in the wake of Battle of the Atom, Wolverine must assemble the X-Men’s finest to attempt a daring rescue in Amazing X-Men #1, a swashbuckling new series from red hot writer Jason Aaron and blockbuster artist Ed McGuinness!

The X-Men are through mourning the loss of Nightcrawler, the “heart and soul” of their family – it’s time to act! Wolverine must lead Storm, Beast, Ice Man and more on an epic journey to recover one of their greatest allies – in a story that’s been building since Wolverine and the X-Men #1!

AMAZING X-MEN #1 (SEP130740)

Written by JASON AARON

Art & Wraparound Cover by ED MCGUINNESS

FOC – 11/06/13 On-Sale 10/14/13

I see November, but not an actual date. And can't seem to find one. Anyone know the release date? I did try I swear. :)

... They can't have made Azazel an awesome character, and they made him a pirate .... And why put this costume on Nightcrawler ? He had the Astonishing X-Men one , Why put an old costume ? (head-scratching) ... will wait and see the review for this ...

I'll give Jason Aaron a turkey sandwich if he brings back Cerise........

I can't wait for Kurt's return :)

I've been reading up on Wolverine and the X-Men because they said it's building off of stories from that series. And the more I read X-Men book without Kurt, the more I wish he was back. I can't wait for him to come back and be like "Wait you mean to tell me that Scott has gone rogue, Wolverine is running the school, and that the original X-Men are in the present???" xD

@calebthespy: It says "on-sale 10/14/2013" in the article, right before the preview. But that doesn't make sense or work.

Why would Nightcrawler want to leave heaven? Isn't he a priest? It's like why does the Pope ride around in his bullet proof pope-mobile, doesn't he want to be with god? Think about that.

ps

love how extra cute the Bamfs look and the red anti-Bamfs(?) look.

Hey... What story arc should I read before picking up this book? I didn't even knew Kurt was dead and I'm currently reading the relaunched x-books, so any help would be appreciated!

The Second Coming arc from 2010 is the big one, and also Wolverine Goes to Hell which started later that same year. Haven't been reading Wolverine & the X-Men, so I don't know if there's anything important there.

Happy Kurt is back.

I've read the first few volumes of Wolvie and the X-Men in trade form and there isn't anything besides the bamfs being around a lot. At least not yet.

But yes, I'd say read Second Coming, Wolverine Goes to Hell, and if you can...read Wolverine and the X-Men. I suggest getting the trades (especially if you can just get them from the library...that's easiest).

This might actually get me to buy an xmen book.

@lcazt1996: @kerrigan: thanks dudes! I'm gonna look for those arcs and I'm gonna think about reading WATXM.

Thanks again!

Damn another X title.

Well nightcrawler is one of my fave characters, but really hate that he is returning. Cheapens his death and makes his sacrifice meaningless. Prob won't pick this up, I'm X'd out still at the moment anyways.

with those goggles, almost though beast was a blue hellboy for a second...

ART!

I am sure the Pope wants to be with God...eventually...and probably does not want to be riddled with bullets when he gets there.

@kingjoeg: I personally really like The Flash and Wonder Woman.

Edited by StMichalofWilson

The art looks pretty. I'm quite tempted to buy this because of this and I'm a fan of Nightcrawler

Edited by startingtofall

@clintseviltwin: agreed. Hopefully they can tie something's together and cut out uncanny eventually. Either that, or at least change the art.

Finally :')

your not the only one

I am perplexed as to why Kurt is wearing his outdated costume from the 70's. But, he is my favorite X-Man so I am sold.

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

looks neat

Posted by frozenedge

Here's hoping that with the return of the heart & soul of the X-Men, this stupid Schism ends and the X-Men become whole again. Probably won't happen but I'll hold out hope. This art looks great by the way

Edited by Power NeXus

THIS IS COMPLETELY RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS

Posted by BumBurger

Goddamit im crying tears of joy right now T_T i missed nightcrawler terribly the one in uncanny x-force was just a shell of him it didn't give me my fix

Posted by Caladorcp

@copete: he had that costume waaay after the 70's...he might have had it in the 70's as well, but I remember him having that suit in the 90's. He's actually been in that suit a lot of times. Its iconic. When I think Nightcrawler, this is the suit I think of.

cool

Pleased to see McGuinness has toned down his style.

X-Men + Ed Mcguinness = Must Buy.

Posted by R3DF13LD

Yeah!!! Nightcrawler is my favorite X! Its about time to bring the blue elf back!!!! XD

Posted by greenlucario

Dare I hope for a Nightcrawler oriented series? Even the possibility of a heavily Nightcrawler oriented series has me intrigued, waited too long for this, will pick this up.

Posted by bigsoto74

That drawing of Azazel would make an awesome tattoo!!!

Posted by BattheMan008

Looks cool. However, I hope the way they bring him back isn't TOO far fetched.

Posted by Meteorite

I'm really tempted to pick this up, especially seeing as how Nightcrawler's my favourite X-Man... Does anyone know what the general premise/tone/feel/concept of the series will be after this initial arc?

Posted by Herokiller12344

I really like that cloak.

Edited by PeppeyHare

Yay Kurt!

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

BUYING.

Posted by MannEffest

Yes. Yes. Yes!

The art looks fantastic.

Edited by vPuik

I was sad to see the Mcguinness leave Nova, but looks like he jumped onto another cool book. I need to get this!

Posted by Xwraith

I love Kurt, but I don't love Aaron's X-Men.
