Cartoons Comics & Toons


Nightcrawler (Kurt Wagner) is a comic book superhero in the Marvel Comics universe and a member of the X-Men. He first appeared in Giant-Size X-Men #1 (May 1975). A native of Germany, Nightcrawler is a mutant born with blue skin covering his body, 2 fingers plus a thumb on each hand and only two toes on each foot, as well as long canine teeth, yellow eyes, pointed ears and a prehensile pointed tail. Abandoned as a child, he was taken in by the gypsy witch Margali Szardos and raised as one of them. As a teenager, his mutant nature also bestowed on him enhanced agility and reflexes, the ability to see in the dark and to become near-invisible in the dark and the power to teleport short distances, leaving behind the smell of brimstone. This ability is known informally as "Bamfing". When he teleports in the comics, he leaves behind a cloud of smoke which is usually lettered with the sound effect *bamf*, the noise of air rushing in to fill the space he has just vacated.
As a young man, Wagner spent some time in the circus, but left when, as elaborated in the X-Men Annual #4 titled 'Nightcrawler's Inferno' (1980), he was forced to kill his foster brother Stefan who had become a mad child murderer. Hunted by the mob from the nearby village for his appearance and the resultant presumption of being the murderer, he was rescued by Professor Charles Xavier who invited him to join his second team of X-Men. There Wagner adopted the name Nightcrawler.
