Should Nightcrawler carry a sword?

First thing I'd like to say is 'hello' to everyone. This is my first time here and I didn't know that there were this many Nightcrawler fans out there. :shocked:

I was afraid to start a post because I had never done so before, but thought I'd ask the question; Should Nighty carry a sword? It goes along with his swashbuckler personality and he is certainly well versed in how to use one. What do you think? :)

Depends what sort of sword, if it's a rapier, then yes. If it's one of those huge broudswords then no! He also looks good with fencing swords.
Ayee! Look! Its a Boggie...and his frumious Bandersnitch!
Shouldnt that be Bandersnatch?

I don't know. I really like him having a sword. I loved when he had it in Excalibur and X-Calibre...but somehow it doesn't quite seem to fit anymore.

Haha...A katana. Ninja-stealth Nighty. Yeah, a fencing sword is good. Graceful like him. Nothing too broad and bulky, or it's too cumbersome.

Crawler has a point tht it would not fit his character right now... but still he was COOL with swords. a rapier or cutlass would be sweet ;)

I think that Cutlasses for his hands and a Rapier for his Tail would be cool!

I think he should carry at least one sword. Perhaps one with magical properties. Or not. Heh. Either way, I think it would be nice to add. He seems much more aggressive with a sword.

YES!!! Bring on the sword, bay-beee!!!!!

I love the idea of Nightcrawler having a sword with him, it makes him look more swashbuckly, rogueish and sexy. Thats why when I make attempts to draw him, I generally give him a sword.

By the way, welcome and hello, Malice :)

Welcome Malice! :D

Oh, yes I definately think Nighty should carry a sword (rapier or cutlasses will do!). He's a swashbuckler and what swash doesn't have a sword! The comics should really explore his swordsmanship alot more. :bamf:

Nightcrawler should carry a sword at all times. He is really cool with a sword. It makes for great fight scenes. Just read Excalibur #100.

Does the Soulsword still exist? I thought it was destroyed or something. And I'm with you on the CCCC, Bamfette.

Yeah, priest or swashbuckler, Kurt should always have a sword.

Yes! Sword! He needs one... he looked RIGHT with it back in the old excalibur issues. *Sniff* Nightfan misses Nightcrawler's sword...

I'm with you too Bamfette! The CCCC sounds like a good idea to me! I always thought he should carry a sword. I prefer to see him block attacks with his sword rather than always teleporting away. It would make for better fight scenes. And what swashbuckler wouldn't want better fight scenes? ;) Also wanted to thank everyone for welcoming me. It's nice to talk with other Nighty fans!

The more swords, the better-
(I remember seeing a concept sketch with Revolution Archangel having a broadsword.... )

Although I don't think he should be limited to one Kind of Sword......

How about a scene where the X-Men are suiting up for a mission, and 'Crawler carefully examines his "Walll 'o Swords" to pick the right one for the mission at hand.............
