BAMFing into the Day Thread is Kurt Wagner aka Nightcrawler the fuzzy blue elf X-man.
Kurt Wagner’s first appearance was in Giant Size X-Men #1 (May 1975).
A star performer of the Bavarian circus, Professor Xavier saved Kurt from being killed by a mob of angry villagers.
He was recruited into the X-Men to save the original members from the island Krakoa.
Kurt has the gift of teleportation, is super agile, and is good with a sword.
My favorite story featuring Nightcrawler is God Loves, Man Kills.
I recently read it over the summer and if you haven’t done so, check it out the next time you are looking for something to read.
The story, with a few minor tweaks, serves as the plot for the movie X2.
Did You Know -“IGN ranked Nightcrawler as the 80th greatest comic book hero of all time describing Nightcrawler as a mutant with the appearance of a demon and the heart of a preacher.”
