A new teaser for the word "BAMF" has Chris Claremont and Todd Nauck attached to an All-New Marvel NOW! project.

Marvel just released a teaser that heavily implies we will be getting a brand new Nightcrawler series from Chris Claremont, with Todd Nauck on art. This could be the most catastrophic...
Oh, who am I kidding? I can't do it. Can't snark on Claremont.
Look, I know it's fashionable to hate on Chris Claremont today, but the man produced what was possibly the greatest run on any comic book ever in his seventeen year Uncanny X-Men run, which laid the foundation for the stories the X-Men books are still telling today, over twenty years since he was unceremoniously forced off the book by, of all people, Bob fucking Harras. That's right, Bob Harras has been ruining comics for over two decades.
I'm gonna say something else shocking in this article. I liked X-treme X-Men. I liked X-Men Forever. Until Bendis' X-Men books came along (and recaptured the old school Claremont feel), X-Men Forever was the best X-book since Grant Morrison's New X-Men. There. I said it.
In my eyes, there's nothing Chris Claremont can do wrong. Nothing! Nothing!
...Okay, almost nothing!
Anyway, it's great to see Claremont back on an X-book, whatever this turns out to be. I hope it's an ongoing and I hope it runs for another seventeen years. Here's the teaser:
