Must See Episodes


His fun-loving nature can sometimes get Kurt into trouble. For example, while playing around with a machine he discovered in an abandoned lab, he was caught in the "Middleverse" created by a student named Forge, who was himself trapped in this pocket dimension. Kurt's power came in handy here, as his teleportation allowed him to ghost back into the real world and alert the team, who eventually rescued both boys. Another time, Kurt (and Kitty) piggybacked on the X-Jet when Wolverine took it to Canada and ended up in the middle of a big fight between him and Sabretooth, and against the head of the Weapon X project.

Physical appearance

Nightcrawler's physical mutation includes blue colored fur covering his body, two-toed feet and three-fingered hands, yellow eyes, pointed ears, fang-like canine teeth, and a prehensile tail. These features give him a demonic appearance.

While wearing his image-inducer, Kurt's appearance is of a, light-skinned young teenage boy. He has blue-ish black hair with dark eyes.

Powers & Abilities

Kurt's mutant physiology grants him advanced agility, reflexes, balance, the ability to cling to solid surfaces and a prehensile tail he can use to grasp and handle objects. His tail is strong enough to support his own weight when he stands on it.

His mutation also grants him the primary power to teleport through inter-dimensional phase-shifting, vanishing from our dimension into another for a fraction of a second, then reappearing instantaneously within our dimension in any pre-determined space within a limited, two-mile range. When Kurt teleports, he leaves behind black smoke and a smell of brimstone, which is the atmosphere originating from the alternate dimension he phases into. Kurt can teleport himself as well as other people and objects. He has teleported as many as 3 people and a moving car.

The only other limitation of his teleporting ability is that he has to be able to see or know where he is going, otherwise he risks reappearing inside a solid surface. Kurt seems to possess a limited spatial awareness that helps him avoid reappearing within solid constructs as long as he knows where he's going.
