    The Kurt Wagner / Nightcrawler Appreciation 2021

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! IT'S 2021!



    Words by Sundowhn

    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. And raised along side her tow children Jimaine and Stefan. Though, they did not grow up together he also has and adopted sister in Rogue who Raven decided to take in and raise as her own. 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.* He can also see exceptionally well in the dark.

    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.

    Kurt's been through many transformations over the years... For those not in the know, Kurt is currently on the Quiet Council as created by Johnathan Hickman.



    So what next!?

    Oh, I’d love that! Krakoa seems full of wasted opportunities for characters with family ties to interact, Kurt seems particularly isolated.

    Just so everyone knows I added his ability to see in the dark on the opening page.

    The best we had were the X-Men Forever series/s ... I know people weren't really happy with the power swaps but I kind of liked it. I felt it was a bit interesting. Rogue can finally touch but has to worry about venturing out due to her new appearance and Kurt could now revel in what its like to bee seen with a "normal" face but can't touch anyone. I also just added Rogues relation to Kurt in the opening page.
