Kurt Wagner, also known as Nightcrawler, is a mutant.


Nightcrawler was a monk living in a Swiss abbey, persecuted by his superior and the townspeople who believed him to be a demon. Gambit, Rogue, and Wolverine helped him through his trials. Later, his origin as the son of Mystique was discovered, revealing his foster sister to be Rogue and Graydon Creed Jr. his half brother. In the end, after a discussion, Mystique apparently died trying to save both of them from Creed and the Friends of Humanity.


Nightcrawler can teleport from one location to another.


Nightcrawler was voiced by Adrian Hough, who reprised the role in X-Men: Mutant Academy 2. Like George Buza, Hough would cameo in the film X-Men: The Last Stand as Jean Grey's father.

This version focuses on his religious side and abandons the swashbuckler side he sometimes has.

He has joined the X-Men.
