I like the 616 Nightcrawler that is gentle and priestly
I like the 616 Nightcrawler that is fun-loving, caring and flirtatious
I like the AoA Nightcrawler that is a vicious, cynical killer
I like the AoA Nightcrawler that is edgy, but soften him up a tad
I like both
I like both Nightcrawlers.

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?
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.
