|Gertting to know your X-Men:
Born to the disguised shape-shifting mutant Mystique, Kurt Wagner was abandoned at birth when his blue skin, pointed ears and tail revealed Mystique's true identity. Taken in and raised as a member of the circus, young Kurt honed his strength and acrobatic skills, passing off his demonic appearance as a costume. Years later, Kurt was discovered by Professor Charles Xavier and recruited to join the X-Men as Nightcrawler.|
Through his battles with the X-Men, Nightcrawler continued to discover new abilities, form new relationships, and fight against the likes of Dr. Doom, the Mirauders, the Morlocks, and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants - his unknown mother Mystique's team. Nightcrawler was later drawn to the Isla des Demonas where he was manipulated by Azazel - his natural father, to partake in a ceremony with other teleporters like himself. The ceremony was intended to open a dimensional portal, and through it, Azazel hoped to flood the world with evil demons and enslave humanity. Banding with other teleporters, whom Nightcrawler discovered to be his half-brothers, he was able to defeat Azazel, and he continued to fight evil.
