Hard to believe that with all the derivative x-characters running around, they'd actually deem Nightcrawler worthy of killing off. I realize that he has been all but invisible in recent years, but surely some writer out there could have utilized a character like Kurt in an interesting capacity. I'm sure the creatives behind Second Coming felt they needed a big death to give their crossover weight, but it's not worth losing Nightcrawler. Storm is still alive, right? Couldn't they have taken her out instead?
