Like where he teleports you multiple times to weaken you, or when he teleports multiple times hitting you from many different angles. Why are there no names for those? Should be (the people) dub them?

I've seen it described as multibamf...which seems to describe it fairly well.

I've always thought that when he was doing it to run a distraaction or to confuse the opposition, it should be called.....

I've seen it Called "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" multiple times. Most recently about two years ago. But I think that's more when he grabs the person and ports them around. As for when he ports and hits people before they can react... No idea.

How about "Teleporting and hitting people a bunch."

So long as he doesn't do the Power-Rangers/Pokemon/Video-Game trend of announcing the name of your move before you do it.

Hey all...finally got 1) a working computer, 2) time, and 3) inclination to get back here.

Anyway, I designed a card for Nightcrawler in the old OverPower card game that was just that - the multiple teleport attack (Level 3 Strength attack, may make 2 additional attacks at +2). I called it "Triple 'Port Punch". Creative came back and renamed it "Blindside". Which I have to admit, is a little less cheesy.

So I always refer to it as his "Blindside" move.

I just like that it makes people hurl and pass out. Maybe we should just call it "the hangover".

Did anyone read the issue of Exiles where Nocturne takes Kurt out with his own multi-port move? She's more immune to it than he is and he ends up passing out from the strain, while she's relatively unaffected. (She rode piggy back for her entire youth. ;) )

He was trying to take her out because she jumped on him, so he instinctively 'ported with her. She was really trying to take HIM out...so that it'd be easier for the Exiles to kill Jean Grey. ;) Long, goooood story. There're TWO Exile TPBs out now. I VERY VERY VERY MUCH suggest everyone pick them up. Exiles has been my favorite book since the first issue. It's THAT good. :D

Well, it's part of a 2 or 3 issue long arc...it's at the Battle of Phoenix....on the moon. :D She takes Kurt out beause she doesn't want anyone else to hurt him.
