No one can have a normal relationship in X-Men, ever. They're uncanny after all.
Now in Weapon X Noir it creeped me out even more because they kept alternating between calling each other "sister" and "liebling".
It's interesting to me that the recent Origins reinforced that the Szardoses were Kurt's primary relatives, and whil they didn't portray Jimaine as a love interest, this still left it open so that we have to deal with Kurt and Jimaine dating each other in the future. Strange priorities over at the X-editor's office, I say.

Can anyone tell me this about Amanda/Jimaine: is her "default" state to appear as Jimaine or as Amanda? Because in the Nightcrawler's Inferno issue, it tells us something along the lines of 'oh look, it's Jimaine, whom we have come to know as Amanda Sefton.' It always confused me that if she's actually Jimaine, does she take on the appearance of Amanda all the time afterwards? Because Kurt was like 'oh hey! It's Jimaine, goodie!' but then it's revealed she's Amanda and he says 'oh boyo!' and it's all joyous and everything, but I'm sitting here thinking WTF?
Sorry if that's a really obvious question and I'm just being completely dim.
WOAH, that action figure is odd... but I like it. What is he supposed to be in those clothes, a circus barker.
Mimschkin! I really like that issue of Excalibur. Kurt wanted to take the car out for a spin but Kitty got pissed. I think Kurt was treating Kitty like a child... but oh well. I think he just wanted an excuse to take the car out.
OK, so...I've just read Nightcrawler:Origins and yes, the art is beautiful, the story is touching, but...
...this IS an alternate reality or something, right? Because it doesn't fit into anything else in the character's history, or into numerous stories that had been already written about his past, Amanda's past, Stefan, the circus...?
"We're both survivors."
Erff, i just hated this origins stuff.
His time in a circus is supposed to have been a good time, one he has fond memory of.
Not some cheap Les Miserables rip-off.
Now when/if Marvel brings him back, they'll have another chance to go clean slate and mess up their pretension of continuity further.
I hope nobody will hold onto this. It's just so wrong. Starting from simply deleting a plethora of important things in Kurt's past (origin of his last name, the way Mistyque abandoned him, happy childhood, relationship with Jimaine- even that is better than this- Amos Jardine, Florida, Stefan's death, the circumstances in which Xavier found him), to being simply illogical. Nothing that grows up in a cage turns out to be a happy-go-lucky, bright person Kurt turned out to be. Had he been living like that his entire childhood, there's no way he'd ever had the opportunity to develop his pirate obsession, Erroll Flynn fandom, learn to fence, or even to read and write. Margali was a sorceress; certainly she hadn't been on the bottom of her powers for Kurt's entire life, unable to help him?
The only thing that is half-decently explained is Kurt's religious background, except it doesn't fit anywhere in the continuity we knew.
Is there somebody in Marvel who specifically hates Nightcrawler and Storm and takes delight in making them pathetic?
"We're both survivors."
Yeesh, the more I read about it, the happier I am that I didn't read the Origins book =/
Also, happy 100th page, Nightcrawlerers
