I need a quick overview

Postby the_lone_bamf » Tue Sep 13, 2011 6:27 am

So I got to talking to some of my friends about proposed methods of bringing back Nightcrawler, and I sorta mushed together a theory I'd like to play with in fanfic or something.

Trouble is, like a lot of fans, I sort of lost interest in X-titles after Kurt died (and there are so many to keep track of) I don't really know what's been going on since.

Can someone give me a quick overview with any pertinent information that might help me out if I attempt to give this story a shot? Aside from the funeral and the whole piano-up-a-mountain stuff, if there was any aftermath from Kurt's death I missed it. (I have this crippling handicap where I feel compelled to shoehorn any stories I write into something that jives with canon, so I'd like to write a story that had to do with what's actually going on in canon.

Sorry to be a bother!

Hey lone bamf!

I know there's been some grief for Logan, and that's been mentioned here and there. He and Scott haven't resolved their issues AFAIK. And I know he's been mentioned here and there by other characters, like Ororo (she talked about him with X-23 early in her series). But someone who's read more than me will likely be able to better answer this question.

After all, this is a Nightcrawler board. If there's any group of people to answer this, it should be here ;)

Thanks for the heads up, I hope someone can give me a little info.

Actually, this is sort of a long shot- (and I'm not sure if this will come to play in a story I write) but what is Illyana up to these days? Is she still in possession of the Soul Sword? (Geez, I don't even know what title she'd be in these days, if she's around at all.)

...In that vein, if someone could clarify, are there like... TWO Magicks running around? I mean, Jimaine took that title when she started guarding Limbo, right? But Illyana showed up (at least for a while) during the whole Pixie-soul-dagger drama... and I assume she was also Magick. Er. Confusing much?

As far as I know, Amanda is MIA. The last we heard of her, Scott was writing her a letter (and he wouldn't shut up about it. He mentioned it like 3 times). Otherwise, we haven't heard from her, but when we last left off, she was ruling Limbo with her two snakes Brad and Roger

PS, it's cool to see you back on the board :)

I figured that was the case with Amanda. :) Oh Brad and Roger. XD What? Wow, Scott must have really been proud of his penmanship.

Yeah, thanks. I am like... grand poobah of lurkers. I seem to pipe up at random times. I was just browsing that "How should he come back" thread and it got my mind going.

Lurk no more! We're having some fun here ;)

Yeah, the whole letter thing was so annoying. It was Scott's only real response to Kurt's death. People would be like "OMG Kurt died in this! Scott, WTF?!" And he'd be like "Um, TRY WRITING A LETTER TO HIS SISTER! STFU!" I swear, I know it was mentioned twice, and it was SO dumb. I can imagine him scrawling it out really quickly while Emma wasn't around to tell him to do something else. "Dear Anna Jermaine, Sorry about your brother - boyfriend? Whatever, you Europeans are weird. Anyway, he's dead. Try not to be blue about it. HA! Get it? Humor in these times is important. Anyway, Alf Vedersane or whatever. Scott"

He probably sent it from a no-reply email too. The dick

Oh God...The Pixie-Magik drama *shudders*. And as for Illyana, she's in Uncanny right now. It's pencilled by Greg Land and I keep thinking she's Dazzler or Emma (I'm not sure which character I should be feeling bad for). Although considering it IS Land, Illyana probably is Emma. And Pamela Anderson. And whoever he's traced lately.

Ahem. But yeah, honestly the reaction has seemed kind of limited although characters have displayed genuine grief - although Hope could do with showing a bit more, all things considered... Logan was certainly hit the hardest and for a character like Logan, that is nothing to be sniffed at as he's no stranger at all to death.

I kind of remember Amanda popping out of Limbo at some point in the past couple of years, but I have no clue when or where. I know, I'm lame. Although then again so are the writers for establishing so many damn characters that are then never kept track of.

To be fair to Hope, she did lose her father. So I don't hold it against her if she's not really mourning that weird, smelly blue guy. But then, if she's not mourning anything at all, that makes no sense.

The last time I remember seeing Amanda was in the solo series. But I could be wrong...

Amanda got rather forcefully kicked out of Limbo, and the last time I recall seeing her on panel, she was the next worst thing to comic book dead- comic book comatose. Apparently Cyclops wrote that letter not sure if she could even read it. Or maybe she got better, and it wasn't worth even a passing off-panel mention.

Uncanny X-Force Storyline thus far

X-Men Second Coming Event

From there I'd say Marvel.com will have summaries of what's going on in Schism and for any other talk, I'd say hit the X-Men topics at CBR.

Thanks for all the help, guys. I had no idea Amanda was in a coma etc. That influences me quite a bit, actually. Sorry for my annoying questions. XD

No worries! Call me crazy, but I enjoy discussing Nightcrawler ;).

I hope you stuck around!

I will probably have loads more questions, and when I get some semblance of a story together I'll be sure to share it here. XD Actually, maybe I should go ahead and share my growing collection of art commissions I've been gathering at the last several conventions I've gone to... XD

I'd love to see your commission! I've actually been considering starting a thread for all my stuff too. I have a ridiculous amount of Nocturne art that needs to be shared.

Wish I could help you lone bamf, but I stopped buying Marvel books when they killed Kurt.

I'm popping in to say that some of the best Nightcrawler art I've ever seen has been commissioned pieces, and some of those were by artists that have never penciled him in a book, so I'd love to see them, and Nocturne too! :)

Emma named one of her gray hairs after him, IIRC. Aside from the grief pieces, that's the only other bit that comes to mind. Mystique mentioned his death, but not much got explored from her end 'cause she kinda got dead. Again. Sort of.

Illyana pulled some Limbo mess in NM recently that resulted in Scott locking her in the brig. I don't know the details, though. Most recently, she played a major role in Colossus becoming Juggernaut. I keep wondering if this Illyana is really the 616 Illyana or the more villainous version who was pulled over from another universe in Exiles.

I read too many comics to keep everything straight. :toothy

I remember that grey hair bit! Oh Emma. Classy as ever.

And Kurt came up briefly before Mystique died, I remember her mentioning him to Logan. I don't recall the details though...

Why bother mourning when they know he's coming back soon? Oooooh.

I want to hear more about Amanda's coma. I can't stand that woman.
