X-Men: Regenesis - Uncanny X-Force Teaser Reveals Surprising New Member

There was speculation over a new member joining but this isn't what we expected.

Marvel has been releasing several X-Men: Regenesis teaser. Each one features one character revealed while the other characters are hidden in silhouettes in the background. Schism is said to shake things up and result in a change in team rosters across the board. Now it looks like this roster change could have an affect on Uncanny X-Force as well. With the current story arc, there was speculation that possibly Jean Grey from the Age of Apocalypse world might return with the X-Force team.

We can probably assume who the three shadowed figures are, unless Marvel is being really clever and tricky, it appears to be Psylocke, Deadpool and Fantomex. But at the bottom...Age of Apocalypse Nightcrawler?!? Very interesting. What are your thoughts? We'll have to wait until December for this.

i still miss 616 Kurt.......but this guy will do in the meantime

Posted by leokearon

Well that's one way of bring Kurt back without bring him back

Edited by GothamRed

has it is been confirmed that that is aoa nightcrawler, they could revive the main continuity one using that crimson thing, sorry forgot the name, that psylocke had going on for a while hence the scar, you can't rule out that possibility, but even if it is AoA kurt, it be nice to see him back.  Personally I'm still waiting for morph to join earth-616, maybe someday.

Now this is a team I can get behind!

No Wolverine? 
 
 

 
I wonder how many other AOA guys get brought back...

A lot of people saw this coming.
yeah I agree, when wolverine goes over to AoA, we all knew he would try to bring back nightcrawler with him. im surprised no jean grey showing up yet.

Hmmm. While I may not like X-Force, some Nightcrawler in the Marvel Universe is better than no Nightcrawler. He's my fav'rit!

Posted by Green ankh

cool.  To bad the other three suck
Posted by NXH

so, does this mean no Wolverine in X-Force and Archangel is dead or he's a villain?
Who's the artist Robbi Rodriguez? Anyone know who this guy is? Cos I sure as hell don't.

Posted by John Valentine

This is exactly what we were expecting.

Uncanny X-Force so far has been amazing, no doubt that the addition of AoA Nightcrawler will be interesting to say the least. I can't wait to check out what Remender has in store for his X-team.

not really that surprising actually

yep
Posted by FNspiderdan

hell yes!! i wonder who the leader of the team will be if the team is just the people shown

Posted by AgeofHurricane

So they really DID go and be predictable by bringing back AoA Kurt, what significance is HE bringing to the table ?

Posted by Crowingaboutcomics

Yeah, Kinda' saw this coming - which will be cool if they do it right - have to admit, I never cared for the Priest Nightcrawler, but had always loved the swashbuckling Nightcrawler...and I too, have been enjoying X-Force - one things that has bugged me from the beginning: The Black and White suits...these guys are blackops right?  WHITE REFLECTS!!!  Not good if you're trying to move around in secret...plus have you ever tried to get blood out of white clothing?

Nightcrawler?  isn't he dead?
Nightcrawler's dead? G-G-G-Ghost!!!

So Wade, Phantomex, Psylocke and AoA Kurt. That's a pretty easy one to make out almost to the point that the shadows weren't needed.
I still want Domino back on board, and as the team's field leader. I think she owns that position in my opinion.

kind of ironic 616 nightcrawler didnt want x force

I'd be down with that. When Cable comes back, I'd like to see him on the team as well.  
 
Deapool, Cable, Wolverine, Domino, and AoA Nightcrawler on the same team. That'd be awesome.

Damn, this is gonna be a fun team. Looking forward to this

Edited by Teerack

Really glad they there gonna bring Nighcrawler back and it would be pretty sweet if Jean came back to, but honestly I was hoping for Kirika. Out of the whole team in AoA she's the only one that they don't have back on Earth-616(including the dead) it would be cool because it would be an actual new character not just a new versions of an old one like what AoA  Jean and Kurt are.

Does the AOA Nightcrawler's personality differ from the Earth-616 personality? I've never read AOA, so I'm just curious. 
In AoA, Nightcrawler did not have any of the same kind of morals that 616 Nightcrawler had. He once used his powers to decapitate AoA Deadpool. He has the same attitude towards killing that most of the other members of X-Force have.
Posted by Namor1987

I highly doubt that Wolverine won't have any involvement in this team. He'll probably be like what Nick Fury is to the Avengers. Just give them missions & brief them I see Archangel as 2nd in command but at the base most of the time
Posted by BransonHuggins

This makes perfect sense.  Wolverine and Nightcrawler have always had a close relationship.   Even though Wolverine knows that this is not his Kurt Wagner, friend, companion, ally, this is still Kurt Wagner.  This Nightcrawler no doubt does not see Wolverine in the same light, but I am willing to be based on what is going on that will change soon.  There will be a mutual respect once this is all over.  He would make a natural addition to the strike team that is X-Force, and as shown before, this Nightcrawler has no qualms about killing.  He will do what needs to be done.
 
As for Jean.  I don't know, I just don't see her coming back.  It would add a little tension to the Scott/Logan split going on in Schism though.  Even though Scott is with Emma, it would have to hurt to see Jean in the arms of Logan, even if it's not really his jean.  As Scott has shown, as long as she looks the same, he's good (Pryor).  But I ultimately don't think they would bring Jean back in this way.  It would be cool, but wouldn't really fit overall.  We'll see though.  But if I was a  betting man, I'm going to say that Jean is going to die (again) saving X-Force and the AoA universe, and allowing X-Force to return home.  She'll come back, but just not this way.

That's why it's perfect that AoA Nightcrawler join, even if it's predictable. I'm kind of hoping that AoA Nightcrawler will cause some friction with the other X-men on other teams, especially since he's the polar opposite of the 616 Kurt they all knew and loved. 
Posted by thatlad

So Cable and Nightcrawler coming back so soon after second coming? Seems way too soon. 
 
Although I do support the idea of bringing AOA counterparts back to 616, it sits with me better than some of the lame CBD comebacks...comes to something when 'crossed over from an alternate reality' is the most plausible return from death.

Edited by hitechlolife

This is awesome. They ruined 616 Kurt by turning him into a one-note religious character imo (Writers fault, not religion) . Here's a chance to get back to a kickass swashbuckling Nightcrawler even if he is a vastly different character. The rest of the team are the easiest silhouettes yet. WB Betty, Deadpool and Fantomex. Good to see Angel is not on there - even if he is on the team.  The current story is too good to spoil.
 
So Blue team and Gold team have three teams each now. New Mutants and X-factor remain. I kinda hope the latter stay free agents though.

@ironshadow
I totally agree...and this is amazing news

Posted by jcbart

I like that Wolverine isn't there, he's on too many teams (does this mean he falls out with them during Schism?). I also like that Angel isn't there, perhaps he dies or is saved and has to go to rehab. Finally, AoA Nightcrawler will be an awesome addition to the team.

Nice one. Well I guess we know where X-Factor are going to side, given the ginormous arm on the right. 
Posted by Praetor_fenix

Meh, the only good thing about this is that (for now) they're not bringing any Jean Grey to the 616 universe.

Posted by sa5m

Good to have the blue elf again =)

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

I am interested in the Niightcrawler thing

Posted by zombietag

i dont care what they do as long as remenders writing.

Posted by sora_thekey

NO more Angel or Wolverine?! But... isn't the book about them?!

AoA Nightcrawler is awesome, considering that this is a good way to bring the character back without reviving him.

I wonder how AoA Nightcrawler is going to break the news to Deadpool about what happened to his counterpart in that universe.... 
 
"So yeah....you were kinda a dick and a psychopath, so I kinda had to teleport your head off..."

Posted by The_Lunatic

Also, I am guessing Wolverine is not part of X-force because he is devoting his time to leading his faction of X-Men, and Angel is probably going to be doing some important stuff in the AoA universe.

Edited by FNspiderdan

im hoping if wolvie isnt there that fantomex is leader. and if that isnt deadpool, fantomex, and psylocke it would be cool if they were more AoAers. or it would be cool if the chick was magik

Posted by crazed_h3ro

Well....that's one way to bring Nightcrawler back. But this news is pretty epic, and really can not wait for the new X-Men book.

I like all of those characters, but is anyone else just full of apathy regarding this X-revamp?

Posted by 00 Raiser

I knew it was coming. As soon I saw the issue of X Force where they ran into the AoA Nightcrawler. I was like "This is how they are going to bring him back.. This might be a good thing.
