Nightcrawler as Phoenix?

Post by stormcrow20 » Sun Aug 26, 2007 10:34 pm

I was reading the Wikipedia page about Phoenix and saw this listed under "List of hosts":

"Nightcrawler: He briefly possessed a bit of Phoenix when he fought Jean Grey and was seduced by the power of Dark Phoenix."

I don't remember this. In what comic/issue did it happen? Are there any images online? Did he have the powers of the Phoenix? Did his costume change?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I knew since this came from Wikipedia that I should take it with a grain of salt.

Surely there's a Nightcrawler fan out there who knows if this happened?

Well, what it actually says is:
Nightcrawler: He briefly possessed a bit of Phoenix when he fought Jean Grey and was seduced by the power of Dark Phoenix.
That wording makes it seem like the Tempting of Samwise by the Ring. Obviously, he overcame the temptation.

I swear, I don't remember this at all either... and I've read the Dark Phoenix story, though it's been a while. He got his butt whupped, along with the rest of the X-Men, but as far as getting some essence of Phoenix or whatever... I've got nada.

This may have happened during Excalibur when Rachael was on the team, or maybe in a What If?

I'll keep my eye open for this sort of scene.

He was possessed by the Phoenix in a What If? but he wasn't fighting Jean Grey. And it was the whole Phoenix, not just "a bit". And he died immediately after, there was no time for Dark Phoenix. So I dunno.

I asked this over on the marvel.com forums, and this is where they pointed me:

What if (2nd series) #23

http://www.uncannyxmen.net/db/spotlight ... 70&page=10

Third article down.

Interesting, and I think it would be worth reading of course, but I believe that idea had more potential.

Thanks everyone!

Hello Stormcrow20! I gave that link to N.P. over in the Nightcrawler Appreciaion Thread at Marvel. Are you one and the same? *hums weird twilight zone music*

You'll notice I just added a 4 to my user name. I'm too old and senile to remember a whole new name.

that I remember nothing of. And I read the old Phoenix issues to bits :X

Another thing that I was wondering about when I read this- Does Kurt still have the soul sword? He had it at the end of his mini series...Or does Pixie have it now?
Somebody please enlighten me;)

Apparently there's going to be more of Magik soon, at least, according to my X-Men: Divided We Stand.

Info on the upcoming Magik story by Cebulski.

My story takes it to the next step from there, and then what we’re doing, there’ll be an X-Men annual coming out towards the end of the year where we explore her and the relationship with [her brother] Peter, Amanda Sefton, Nightcrawler, and you’ll see a little bit more of Illyana coming out.
