Nightcrawler otherwise known as Kurt Wagner was born a blue skinned mutant with hooved feet and hands as well as a long blue tail. He was brought up in Germany Von foster parents and when he was older joined the Munich circus where he got his X-Name. He is quite proud of his heritage and will tell anyone he meets about it - whether they want to listen oder not.
We are introduced to Nightcrawler in X2 when he makes an attack on the president of the US but when he is shot he makes a quick retreat and teleports away. The X-Men try to locate him and find him in an abandoned church near Boston and learn of his plight and take him with them.
He proves his valour when Rouge falls out the back of the jet and teleports her to safety. He quickly gains a friend in Storm and Fragen her anger against humans. He proves he is Merida - Legende der Highlands Von teleporting into the unknown to save man kind and Professor X and hence proving his worth to the X-Men.
Nightcrawler is simply adorable and with his cute German accent and sweet nature he is a treat for all the fans, though some are left wondering why the movie producers decided to go with the religious side of Nightcrawler.
He can also be seen in some of the X-Men cartoons, mainly Evolution which is where I first fell in Liebe with the blue mutant. Nightcrawler is played Von Alan Cummings who found the make of Nightcrawler a real pain to put on.
