    This is so cool. We knew we'd be getting Nightcrawler content but I never imagined his Religion plot-line would merit its own book. This is an excellent creative team and an inspired concept for a book.


    But I want to highlight just how cool the whole X-Line is right now. When I was a kid I thought I had it good because we variety X-Titles (The Government Team! The X-Men! More EXTREME Teen X-Men! Magic X-Men! More X-Men! Cable! Wolverine!) But now...good golly....(Magic X-Men 2! Space X-Men! CIA X-Men! Teen X-Men! X-Men Death Detectives! X-Men Pirates! X-Men! X-Men Baddies! Wolverine! Cable! and now X-Men Reglion! And soon X-Men Business!)

    The foundation that HoXPoX and the Krakoa era has allowed creators to explore is such a gift to us fans. It's brutal on my wallet but what a worthy expenditure

    Sounds like we have yet to see the full team roster.

    So, yes. So much I could say about this and so much I shouldn't. Full team lineup is a looong way from being revealed... utterly massive beat at the end of #1... big clues already circulating... Beyond excited to be Walking The Way with you all.

I mean I'm sure Spurrier is going to kill it on any X-book he gets handed but let's not pretend Hickman didn't create the perfect environment for writers to use such a diverse cast of characters in this new narrative enriched setting lol
    Pitches come and go. Losing faith and founding a religion isn't something that only can happen on krakoa, it is very generic.

    It is basically a Nightcrawler solo, with some awesome kids as support cast. I am in, deep in.

    I love Spurrier and the concept of mutant religion, but this is... Not what I expected. And I'm not sure I wanted another team so full of teleporters.
    Pixie could have found a home in Excalibur as a mutant fairy. Blink is already in S.W.O.R.D... And I couldn't care less about Doc Nemesis.

    Plus I'm bummed Spurrier isn't writing X-Corp. Unless he's writing both, but it's unlikely.

    I'm not here to discuss whether not a storyline is generic or not to you I was merely pointing out the rain why someone would be crediting Hickman as well as Spurrier for the creation of this book.

    You don't want Pixie in Excalibur don't wish that cruelty upon her. Chances are she just become a wallpaper background character while Tini focuses on Betsy and Dragon Shogo.

    This is not the final team, Spurrier tweeted.

    Hickman said spurrier isn't writing x-corp

    Since the team is bigger than what we've seen, I hope Dust gets a big role here.

    Surprised and Excited!

    The art is looking great, the cast is good and it sounds as if it's only going to get better, Si always brings his best writing to the X-titles, and the premise is different.

    I couldn't ask for more, yet!

    I know there's a whole mystery around Krakoa and the X-Men acting strangely, possibly brain-washed, perhaps not even reborn as not their true selves in this new era but to me it doesn't seem any more obviously "wrong" then with Nightcrawler's character. This is a character defined by his Christianity and his belief in a higher power. A belief he held firm despite the many trauma's he faced and that was only further solidified when he died and literally met that higher power. To me the idea that Kurt would suddenly say now, no none of that is real, in fact we are god, and I am going to make a religion about it, that premise seems unbelievable. At least unbelievable if we are talking about the real Nightcrawler. I cannot imagine he would not only cast aside his faith but perform open blasphemy to such an extreme degree because mutants are now living on an island where things aren't quite as bad as they used to be.

    That all said....it is a Nightcrawler book so I will check it out. I hope they just find a way to make this concept ring true to the character.
