Newsarama spoke with Age of Apocalypse writer David Lapham about his role in the upcoming Marvel crossover X-Termination, and the other writers involved — Astonishing X-Men's Marjorie Liu and X-Treme X-Men's Greg Pak — have also gone on record about the story, which details the Age of Apocalypse's Nightcrawler's quest to flee the classic Marvel Universe and return to his home reality. Over at CBR, Liu discussed the central roles Wolverine and AoA Nightcrawler (recently seen in Uncanny X-Force) play in the story, saying, "These are two very passionate individuals who once they set their mind on something, that's it. That is it. The conflict between them, because their motives are very different — they're not bad guys individually — but their motives are so different that resolving this is going to require, I think especially on Nightcrawler's part, a real journey of self, self-exploration and conscience."
Liu also hinted that X-Termination will have major repercussions on Astonishing X-Men, "for one character in particular."
Most interesting is this part:
promise that X-Treme X-Men would eventually circle back to the mainstream Marvel Universe,
Also there goes any chance of me sleeping
It shall my haunt my dreams. What is it you say? Well as Sage states:
"Just a supremely powerful, death dealing, Brood-possessed, acanti skywhale Xavier."
