Re: Nightcrawler's name

Wasn't one of the old versions of his origin story that Margali actually saw his parents when she got him? That would explain him coming with the name. They've made such a mess of his background.

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

I'm not so convinced it is supernatural. Methinks it's the natural shapeshifting ability of the Bamfs combined with Azazel's blood magic. They did stand around in a sorcery circle before fusing together, and that's not unlike what was happening when Azazel had his offspring in his thrall when trying...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

I'm not going to sweat the details unless they goof something up. Right now, the only thing I don't like is the insistence that Kurt no longer has his soul. As long as the new body and soul stay together, Kurt still has his soul. And if the body is an exact reconstruction of what used to embody Kur...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

This is by far the best explanation I've heard on Nightcrawler's soul. However, this raises the question on whether Nightcrawler lost his entire soul or whether it's fragmented, a la Voldemort. This would explain any loss of humanity he may suffer and why Broo gained his back. Also, would he really...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

Yeah, I saw that. I just don't ... get it. I don't get where the blood exchanges, Bamfs, soul promises, and yaddayada are all connected and it doesn't help that three writers are involved. This is how Clone Saga got turned to shit, you know that right? Too many people trying to explain the same thi...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

Even if he hasn't picked up Azazel's longevity through the Bamfs being infused with his blood, Kurt may be dang near immortal because there are so many of the shapeshifting critters. Yeah, they need to clarify this aspect. I'm not really sure how that works and I don't like it as it is. I got the i...

Re: Claremont to return to Nightcrawler!

I love the Bamfs though the way they're drawn now reminds me of Stitch from Disney. I love Stitch! :D I don't think the little guys are going anywhere. They functionally are Kurt now. The whole idea of them providing his body in exchange for his soul makes me wonder if the real reason he wouldn't b...

So I don't want to say I was disappointed, but I am certainly really curious why they went almost the exact opposite direction I was anticipating... and they totally embraced the whole Amanda relationship.

Re: Kurt and Bamfs (slight spoilers)

SPOILER ALERT!!! . . . They definitely had to come up with a body for him unless they went with a body-snatch or clone. Anything's plausible in comics! :D The Bamfs are shapeshifters by nature, and they seem to take on the qualities of whoever feeds them. By that logic, they initially gained telepor...

Re: Kurt and Bamfs (slight spoilers)

I suspected this result after the reveal of the Bamfs' origin. Of course, I was looking for certain things for Reasons. ;) One must wonder exactly what this means for Kurt's powers and beyond. It's an issue they sidestepped with certain others. Is he even technically what he was anymore? (I'm not su...

Re: Kurt & Amanda rekindling an old flame

I'm with Angelique. I do not want to see those two as a romantic pair again. It's too many kinds of wrong. And why go back to that well again anyway? The man's just coming back from the dead. He's got enough to address without dredging up that old baggage. He should be allowed to start something new.

Please don't tell me you're blaming digital comics. That's not even remotely close to even being implied by anything I said.

That's a very pessimistic and honestly, rather baseless assumption.

Pessimistic? Try realistic. We fans...

I'll help with the science! Physics is not my strong point, so I may muck up the jargon a little. ;) Kurt's teleportation is more like traveling through a wormhole, and the wormhole, in the case of his ability, is the Brimstone Dimension (thanks to Austen). His mutation allows him access to that dim...

Yeah, they blew up a busload of kids--literally, 42 kids on a bus--at the beginning of their New X-Men run. An assortment of other students got killed as the story progressed. They don't play.

I believe it was Craig Kyle who did Generation Hope? That was Kieron Gillen. Kyle and Yost did New X-Men and X-Force . They've racked up quite the body count so far.
