Here I will try to explain why Kurt Wagner - Nightcrawler is one of my favorite characters of all time.
The first I ever saw of Nightcrawler was on the cover of an X-Men comic book I borrowed from my aunt and I liked the fact that he looked so much cooler than everyone else but since I couldn't read that well at the time I didn't even know what his name was.
Then a few years later I turned on the TV and there was a trailer for the new show X-Men: Evolution and I was very excied about it since I loved the first X-Men animated show and I hadn't seen Nightcrawler in it, Anyway after watching the first episode Nightcrawler was already my favorite character and he didn't dissapoint me for the rest of the series.
Kurt Wagner - Nightcrawler
The reason why I like this character is that I have always related with characters that are different and I love characters that has something about them to overcome, In Kurt Wagners case it is his "demonic" appearence that makes him very insecure.
His powers is another thing that I like because I always love the concept of teleportation and his acrobatic abillities are very impressive.
The first episode of the series and also the episode that introduced Nightcrawler.
This was a great episode because it introduced my favorite character and it established what we could expect from later on.
This episode was very good because we get to know Kurt's backstory and we even get a better look at one of the villains that makes her very human or in other words "real".
In this episode whe get to know Amanda Sefton who becomes Kurt's girlfriend and we also learn a bit of how his powers work.
"The Toad, the Witch, and the Wardrobe"
I love this episode because it not only has character development but it is also hilarious.
Kurt is invited to meet his girlfriends parents but a mutant called Toad steals the hologram watch he uses to blend in and that reveals his mutant status to the parents who are not happy.
Kurt Wagner/Nightcrawler has many friends and enemies but among them is a few that he has a closer bond to and here is the ones I think is most important.
Kitty Pryde - Shadowcat
She was the first new X-Men member after him and he tried his best to become her friend but she was still very unsure about her being part of the team and his appearence didn't help it.
She started out being afraid of him because of his looks and his habit of "poofing" everywhere, but after their first mission together she started to warm up to him and this developed into a friendship on the same level as brother and sister.
One of their funniest moments is in one episode where they both were at home sick and Kurt teleported in his sleep which ended up making a whole lot of embaressing things like both of them in the school in their PJ's.
Rogue never really interacted with much with Kurt exept a few times on missions like when they were trying to recruit her to the X-Men where Kurt almost gained her trust.
Later it is reveled that Kurt and Rogue is siblings by adoption and Kurt tries to be like a brother to her but Rogue just says that they aren't really related so he shouldn't bother.
Amanda caught a glimpse of Kurt in his normal apperence and her already curious feeling grew even stronger because of it and she wanted to get to know him better.
When Kurt builds up the courage to ask her to a dance at the school she happily accepted and used it as an opportunity to have him reveal himself to her and when he does they became a couple.
Raven Darkholme - Mystique
Mystique is Kurt's birth mother and she tries to use this fact to get close to him a few times but he usually don't want anything to do with her because of what she has done in the past.
Kurt was adopted by the Wagner family after Mystique was separated from him when he was a baby and she feels like losing him was the worst thing that have happened to her and I think that she would have been much happier if she could have raised him herself.
Well I think that is just about all I can think of for now, I hope that I have made my point and that you undertand why I like this character.
