From Comics Alliance, we see the first images for Marvel's upcoming Inhumanity event, which as some wags have already pointed out in the comments and elsewhere, doesn't seem to feature that many Inhumans, and kinda looks a lot like Earth X. "Following the events of Infinity, the Terrigen Mists are released throughout the world, causing the activation of previously dormant Inhuman cells in millions of people," blah blah blah. We're only mentioning it because there's a Nightcrawler on the teaser image!
Marvel would really be doing me a solid if this is our regular Marvel universe's Kurt Wagner back, and not a clone, a Skrull, a previously unmentioned sibling or son, or the Nightcrawler of earth-398 or something. Also, it would be just smashing if he came back and wasn't a priest, or Angela's herald or apostle or some such. Hell, if they really wanted to grant my wish, I would love it if Kurt quit the X-teams, as he threatened to before his death in Second Coming.
I do kind of like the Inhumans as well, although I still hate the way every writer that gets to use the Inhumans, has seemingly only read the classic Lee/Kirby Fantastic Four issues with them...and mmmmmmaybe the really, really good Jenkins/Lee miniseries. Their other appearances, hell, their most recent appearances? Will probably be completely ignored. Prove me wrong, Marvel; I'm probably already on the hook for this one...
