In Marvel ComicsEdit

Kurt Wagner was born to the mutant Mystique and the demonic mutant Azazel. His last name comes from his step-father Baron Christian Wagner. He was abandoned by his mother for his demon like appearance that he got from his father. Kurt would be raised by Margali Szardos and her two children Jimaine and Stephan in a circus. Kurt would grow up to be religious. As an adult, Kurt killed his brother who had gone mad and killing children. The people of the village thought he was a demon and chased him. Thankfully, Professor X saved him and offered him to join the X-men


Nightcrawler is German, he sometimes pronounces the "W" as a "V". He also says "th" as a "Z". Kurt also says some German when he is speaking English.


  • Nightcrawler has more episodes where he is the main character other than the rest of the X-men (except of course Wolverine)
  • If the series continued, there were speculations that Nightcrawler's and the Scarlet Witch's daughter Nocturne (from another dimension) would have shown up. This is uncertain since the series was cancelled.
  • Although never mentioned in the series, Nightcrawler was a circus performer as mentioned in X-men spotlight.
  • It is unknown weather Kurt is aware of the relation he has with Mystique and Rogue, but since this show is a spin-off of X-Men: Evolution, he could be aware (since in the Evo, he finds out his family ties with them). However, the show does not have a relation with X-men: Evolution so there is a possibility he doesn't know.
