Here is the reply:Mr. Claremont, Thank you for your reply to my email. Your new series sounds really interesting. I assume it negates the Draco arc?
Recently, Mr. Quesada had this to say about Nightcrawler: "...as far as Nightcrawler goes. Will he live past the one-shot where he quits?" Which naturally, has Nightcrawler fans worried. Can you tell me, does he die in that book?
Dear Nancy --
As Chris notes (his words now, I'm catching a coffee) -- please bear in mind that Joe speaks of dimension 616. It's a nice dimension, as such things go but of working on Exiles has taught nothing else it's that there's a big, wide, wonderful OmiVerse out there, with room for an amazing variety of worlds and characters. And if Marvel can tell equally archival tales from the Ultimates dimension, who not from the Forever dimension? For all anyone really knows, Forever might be the core reality, where the true history of the X-Men can be found and followed, and 616 the spin-off? Think on it.
