Marvel has released a new image, this time revealing the previously theorized Nightcrawler as part of Jean Grey's X-Men Red team, along with Laura Kinney's cloned little sister, Gabby. Series writer Tom Taylor, who also scripts Gabby's adventures in All-New Wolverine, further teased that the diminutive hero will finally receive a codename.

Wakandan mutant Gentle and Namor the Sub-Mariner are the first two mutants revealed as part of Jean Grey's X-Men Red team. The announcement, made by Marvel Comics' official Twitter account, follows swiftly on the heels of the release of the publisher's first teaser image which saw the entire team shrouded in silhouette.

X-Men Red, announced last week by Marvel Comics, will launch in February 2018 as a companion to the current X-Men Blue and X-Men Gold from Taylor and artist Mahmud Asrar (both veterans of the X-titles), with covers by Travis Charest. The series is billed as featuring “Jean Grey’s new team of X-Men,” and as we see in the teaser image below, should feature a number of familiar faces from X-Men history.
Jean will first return in Phoenix Resurrection, which will mark the first time we’ve seen an adult Jean Grey in the Marvel Universe since being killed off in New X-Men circa 2004. The time-displaced teenage version of the character has been a prominent part of Marvel’s stories the past few years, and currently starts in her own ongoing Jean Grey series.
Phoenix Resurrection #1, written by Matthew Rosenberg and illustrated by Leinil Francis Yu, is scheduled for release on Dec. 27. No further details on X-Men Red are currently available, but are likely to surface later this month, with the release of Marvel’s February 2018 solicitations.
