That was the original Claremont plan, Mystique became a man and fucked Destiny, the baby was Nightcrawler.

But then Austen made that Demon dude Nightcrawler's dad, and Mystique the mum.

I mean, Firestar is not A list :P

Books sales =/= recognition factor.

It's so forced most of the time when they do these reveals.

Well we need more diversity so we will tack something on that doesn't make any sense on some c list character just to get some attention and shut up whatever minority is complaining this time.

Rawhide Kid. Totally gay. We're so brave making a character gay who no one had thought about in 40 yrs. :lol:

Why does outside recognition factor matter? They arent making Iceman gay in the X-men movie or Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends.

Its in the comic books.

Even with the movies, Iceman is not A list. None of the movies are about him and Amazing Frieds was 30 yrs.

Iceman is B-list, and the only reason he's as high as that is his X-Men and Spider-Man connections, otherwise he'd be floundering in C-listville (towards the outskirts of D-listington).

Human Torch might be A-list, Iceman not so much.

Yep, but it was written by the same guy who implied Iceman was gay, so if we count that, we count the Draco.

John Byrne

Who were Nightcrawler's parents supposed to be?


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



I read a story years ago that Mystique was Nightcrawler's mother. Please give me the scoop on Kurt's true origin.

JB: As originally created, Kurt was the son of gypsies who worked for a circus in Germany. That's it. That's all.

At one point Chris wanted to "reveal" that Kurt's father was Nightmare. Roger Stern, as editor, put the kibosh on that one.

Then Chris decided Kurt's mother was Destiny -- and his father was Mystique. That also went the way of ALL FLASH.

Now? Who the **** knows? (1/20/2005)

austen was a weird due.

Hank Pym slapped the wasp once when he was in a mental breakdwon 30 yrs ago. They broke up, pym recovered they went through tough times and recovered

Then austen comes around and because his dad visciously abused his mother, he has characters yelling at Hank like Hank visciously abused the Wasp and it happened yesterday :lol:

Working out his daddy issues in the comics.

Nightcrawler should be in outerspace with the starjammers being a space pirate. He's wasted on earth.

Nightcrawler was so happy go lucky swashbuckler

then they made him into a very serious catholic

then he became a priest.

until they retconned that to be a fake

the personality of serious CatholicKurt was very different than the fuzzy elf.

to be fair a lot of writers would not drop the spousal abuse thing with Pym. They should have just killed him off a long time ago or retconned it out of continuity when they re-aged tony.

That's still not nearly as bad as Geoff Johns having Hank go vaginal spelunking and then say, "Your turn, Jan". (WTF can little Jan do? Does he want Jan crawling inside his peepee hole or his bunghole?)
