Raised in a traveling circus, German-born Kurt Wagner learned that his mutant abilities were a gift to be celebrated. Nightcrawler can teleport himself, his clothing and a certain amount of additional mass from one point to another almost instantaneously. He leaves behind smoke and the smell of burning brimstone, actually atmosphere from the unknown dimension through which he travels.

He's lean and muscular in the perfect proportion but the paint-job could definitely have used a steadier hand. The edges of the red paint are slightly wavy instead of sharply straight and the all-yellow eyes are sloppily painted. Also there is some excess black paint on the white gloves and boots. The head-sculpt is okay, but he looks old, maybe 30, and he has a big double-chin. I don't remember Nightcrawler being that old or having that pronounced of a chin. And he has a sour look on his face, like he accidentally ate some brimstone. The skin...[See More]
