    Default Nightcrawler Appreciation



    Nightcrawler (Kurt Wagner) is the swashbuckling yet compassionate misfit who first leaped off the pages of X-Men back in 1975. In his time, he's been a fun-loving rogue, a loyal friend, a capable leader of Excalibur, and a man of God. The heart of his team as well as its soul are the two most consistent things he's been over the years, however.

    He's the son of Mystique and Azazel, abandoned at birth and raised in a circus by the gypsy sorceress Margali Szardos as her own son. He originally joined the X-Men after being rescued by Professor Charles Xavier from a pitchfork wielding mob in Germany. In many ways, he has been the living embodiment of Professor Xavier's philosophy that acceptance of diversity(mutants, in the case of the X-Men) would only come about through education and understanding, not force.



    This is the place to discuss all things Nightcrawler related, from his history, his powers, his use in the books both past and present, relationships, friendships, what we like as fans, what we want to see done differently, etc.

    Verstanden? Gut!


    Powers, Characteristics, & Abilities: Nightcrawler is a mutant born with fine blue-black fur covering his body, two fingers with an opposable thumb on each hand and only two toes, each longer than a normal human being's, on each foot and a third toe-like projection on his heel, as well as pronounced, fang-like canine teeth, yellow eyes, pointed ears, and a 3 1/2 foot long prehensile pointed tail which can support his weight.

    His primary mutant power is the ability to teleport himself, his clothing, and a certain amount of additional mass from one point to another virtually instantaneously. He does this by means of displacing himself through an alternate dimension briefly and reappearing in a desired location(usually a place that he can see) Nightcrawler has a limited unconscious extrasensory ability that prevents him from teleporting into any area that he cannot see or has not seen in the past, as doing so runs the risk of injury or death by materializing partially or entirely within a solid object. He leaves behind smoke and a faint scent of burning brimstone; this is a small portion of the atmosphere of the dimension he travels through when he teleports. A loud "bamf" noise is always present whenever he teleports (being the sound of air rushing to fill the space he was just occupying).*

    Nightcrawler is also able to cling to solid surfaces via his hands and feet. He can also render himself nigh-invisible in shadows by manipulating the ever-present portal to the dimension he teleports through so as to bend light around himself.*

    Nightcrawler is a superb fencer, hand-to-hand combatant, and an Olympic level athlete.

    He's recently been brought back from the dead and is currently rediscovering himself and learning who he is now.

    I'm prepared to be disappointed with the lack of Rogue and Nightcrawler in No More Humans but oh well.

    I will be interested where it's placed in continuity. Has to be since Nightcrawler came back alive. And since Rogue is alive in it...It's confusing. lol.
