Kurt Wagner (Nightcrawler)


His fun-loving nature can sometimes get Kurt into trouble. For example, while playing around with a machine he discovered in an abandonded lab, he was caught in the "Middleverse" created by a student named Forge, who was himself trapped in this pocket dimension. Kurt's power came in handy here, as his teleportation allowed him to ghost back into the real world and alert the team, who eventually rescued both boys. Another time, Kurt (and Kitty) piggybacked on the X-Jet when Wolverine took it to Canada and ended up in the middle of a big fight between him and Sabretooth, and against the head of the Weapon X project.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Nightcrawler's physical mutation includes blue colored fur covering his body, two-toed feet and three-fingered hands, yellow eyes, pointed ears, fang-like canine teeth, and a prehensile tail. These features give him a demonic appearance.

While wearing his image-inducer, Kurt's appearance is of a normal-looking, light-skinned teenage boy. He has blue-ish black hair with dark eyes.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Kurts mutant physiology grants him advanced agility, reflexes, balance, the ability to cling to solid surfaces, and a prehensile tail he can use to grasp and handle objects. His tail is strong enough to support his own weight. His mutation also grants him the power to teleport through inter-dimensional phase shifting vanishing from our dimension into another for a fraction of a second then reappearing instantaneously within our dimension in any pre-determined space within a limited two mile range. When Kurt teleports he leaves behind black smoke and a smell of brimstone which is the atmosphere originating from the alternate dimension he phases into. Kurt can teleport himself as well as other people and objects. He has teleported as many as 3 people and a moving car.

Early LifeEdit

Kurt was born a human, but was experimented on by Magneto and awakened his dormant X-Gene, turning him into a mutant and giving him his appearance. When his mother Mystique found out, she tried to leave but was pursued by Magneto and a pack of wolves. She accidentally dropped the baby into a river where he was found by Mr and Mrs Wagners. The Wagners loved Kurt, but understood that he could not walk freely in the outside world, as people would be horrified by his appearance. Eventually, the young mutant was discovered by Professor Charles Xavier. When Mystique found out that he was alive, but living happily with foster parents, she left him there, understanding that he could have a happy life with them, instead of living like the criminal she was.
