‘X-Men’ Legends #12 to feature Chris Claremont ‘Excalibur’ story

Chris Claremont returns to X-Men with a new story set post ‘Fall of Mutants’ this February.

Press Release

Marvel Comics teased Chris Claremont’s return to X-Men Legends last week and today they’ve revealed new details! Coming this February Claremont and Scot Eaton will be exploring one of Claremont’s most iconic works with Excalibur. Just a few days ago at NYCC Claremont gave his thoughts on how he’d redo the recent X-Men movies so he’s clearly heartily ready to tell brand new stories with the merry mutants.

“It’s always fun wandering back along existing pathways and especially having the opportunity to fill in a couple of nifty gaps that were initially skipped over along the way—closing off one significant story-arc and lighting the fire that ignites the series that follows,” Claremont said. “Talk about a treat!”

So what’s X-Men Legends #12 about?

In the aftermath of “Fall of the Mutants,” the X-Men are dead. Or so the world believes. And Mystique seeks revenge on Forge for his role in the loss of Rogue. In order to stop her partner from making a grave mistake, Destiny will have to recruit Nightcrawler and Shadowcat who, injured as they are, must dig deep to find new strength and do what is right as the last X-Men standing!
