    And thanks for posting that scan Dn@N, such a good one! I also love when he treatens to drop the guy after Colossus dies. Colossus never showed that remorse for Nightcrawler. And remember when Kurt cried in the danger room because he missed bullet trapped Kitty? What the hell! Why are his friends such dicks.
    I like it when he hugged Holo-Kitty. It was a very sad scene.

    Yes, sorry for the corny analogy. Basically trying to say is at the end of the day, you're happy to have a beer (Nightcrawler). But if you got to CHOOSE what kind of beer, you want one that tastes good.

    I like both Nightcrawlers.

    That analogy got a lot sexier when you re-worded it...

    This thread's actually making me miss him more than the Appreciation thread.

    I agree that Kurt's spirituality should be a factor in his character, but I think they overdid it there a couple times towards the end.

    I liked the original and I find this version fun. He rides about on undead unicorns.

    Agreed on the face ?tattoos? or whatever that is. The costume is enough to differentiate him.

    I always thought it was red dawn related, but I admit I'm very unfamiliar with AoA beyond some basics.

    I always assumed it was from the Crimson dawn, can't remember why. Did Mystique have the same in AoA?

    It's Crimson not red. Don't know why I got mixed there.

    Nightcrawler throughout much of the 2000's suffered from being shoehorned into too large of an ensemble cast. Writers would only give him a few lines of dialogue and it would usually center on his faith. All this ended up doing was make him seem one-dimensional in this respect, which ultimately caused new writers to be less and less interested in utilizing him. AoA Nightcrawler has been sort of a reset button on the Kurt character, bringing him back a bit to a place where he is more fun, more multifaceted, and more interesting to read about.

    Both are awesome. But 616 Kurt is my all time fav super hero

    And when someone did try to give the guy something to do and somewhere to go, we got Draco.

    His was not the noblest sacrifice, but merely the most appropriate.

    Agreed that AoA Nightcrawler is a good "reset" button in that it reminds people Nightcrawler can be fun. But that doesn't make him a good permanent replacement; AoA Kurt is too different from 616 Kurt in too many fundamental ways (and lacks all the history/interpersonal relationships from the 616 that make a character rich or multifaceted). I hope AoA Kurt is a step on the path toward revitalization of 616 Kurt (who'd obviously been suffering a dearth of riding around on undead unicorns for way too many years).
