Former AEW Women’s Champion Nyla Rose is set to write a new Marvel comic.

Issuing a press release via their official website, Marvel confirmed that Nyla Rose will write Giant X-Men: Thunderbird #1 alongside esteemed comic book writer Steve Orlando.

The statement set up the return of Thunderbird to the Marvel Universe, with a new novel being released in April 2022.

“In yesterday’s dramatic conclusion of Leah Williams and Lucas Werneck’s X-MEN: THE TRIAL OF MAGNETO limited series, fans witnessed the stunning resurrection of a legendary hero in the X-Men mythos—John Proudstar, AKA Thunderbird! The first X-Man to die in action, Thunderbird’s time on the X-Men may have been brief but his impact was mighty, and now his long-awaited return to the Marvel Universe will be explored this April in GIANT-SIZE X-MEN: THUNDERBIRD #1.”

The release continued, marking out that one of two writers of the piece will be Nyla Rose – making her Marvel Comics debut.

“This mega-sized one-shot will mark the exciting Marvel Comics debut of All Elite Wrestling superstar Nyla Rose who will team up with comics star Steve Orlando and First Nations artist David Cutler. Together the trio will grapple with the ramifications of Thunderbird’s recent resurrection while setting him up for a bright future on Krakoa and beyond.”

Steve Orlando spoke of the announcement:

“At last, the news is out! GIANT-SIZE X-MEN: THUNDERBIRD is coming, and I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of it! But this book wouldn’t exist without the incredible work of Nyla Rose and David Cutler, who are joining me on this blockbuster to tell a Thunderbird story that’s as raw, real, and riveting as possible.

“With their invaluable help, we’re taking Thunderbird on a two-fisted quest to reunite with his family and carve out a place for himself in this brave, new, Krakoan era. The world has changed while Thunderbird was away. The threats might’ve gotten more complex, but Thunderbird’s still sure there’s not a problem out there he can’t solve with his own two hands.”

Giant-size X-Men: Thunderbird #1 will be released on April 27.
