Chris Claremont Returns to the X-Men with X-Men Legends #12

This past year, X-Men Legends has given some of the greatest X-Men creators in history the chance to revisit their classic runs with revelatory new tales that have astounded and delighted X-Men fans. And this February, Chris Claremont, the writer behind the franchise’s most influential works, will make his mark on the series in X-Men Legends #12. His long-awaited debut on the title will see the writer step back into his unparalleled run on Uncanny X-Men in a story set before the start of another one of his iconic works, Excalibur. Teaming up with popular X-Men artist Scot Eaton , the groundbreaking writer will pen an all-new tale centered around the legendary characters he created and defined including Nightcrawler, Kitty Pryde, Mystique, and Destiny!

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!

Check out the cover below by Excalibur co-creator and superstar artist Alan Davis, and pick up X-Men Legends #12 when it hits stands in February!
