Mindless Speculation: Chris Claremont & John Romita on X-Men Legends?

This is just a little mindless speculation. But the X-Men: Legends series has published new mutant-related comic book stories from classic X-Men teams. These have been Fabian Nicieza and Brett Booth, Louise Simonson and Walter Simonson, two issues each/ But for #5 and #6 in July and August?

Well, Marvel Comics has just stated that John Romita Jr will be returning from DC Comics to Marvel Comics in July. Given that he also had a classic run with Chris Claremont on X-Men, is impossible that his return may be on such a title, with Chris? Just a little mindless speculation…

And maybe an excuse to remind the new Krakoan folks that Claremont and Romita did chimera fighting Nimrods first…

Anyway, comic stores that opens an account with Penguin Random House by May 7th will receive a variant cover featuring exclusive art from Romita. Might be a good idea to open one up…
