HOW DID NIGHTCRAWLER COME TO BE CREATED?

Postby ChastMastr » Thu Jan 02, 2003 10:00 pm

Well, I always liked Kurt's faith (sorry! My first X-men comics was Annual #4 in 1980, where it was kind of central; got me into Dante, too...) but I do find him becoming a priest kind of odd -- and suspect it was a case of "he's religious, therefore he must become clergy," as if people can't be religious without taking it on as a profession...

Hey Dave? what exactly are your "personal beliefs" anyway? (If you don't want to answer that question that's ok with me, I'm just curious! ;))

I never liked the association between Kurt and religion, mixed in with his love of pirates and such. It just seemed to mixed up to me.

But, then, this is coming from a girl who willingly drinks German beer.

Mmmmm....German beer... :content

Well.. For one side it doth fit him being religious. As far as I read he is not only a german but also a "Bayer". And bavaria is admittedly the german "bible belt".

*is in awe* Kurt's creator...right there...I am SO PUMPED!!!:crackedIt's absolutely great to hear the full story of Nighty. He came about in a storm eh? my buds and I make up some X-men characters, never taking it that seriously...maybe we should!:rolleyes I'd like to see what the people at Marvel would think of my little characters :D To be completely honest..I'm pretty sure they'd laugh and toss the paper away :dies but a few (very select few mind you) could pass through the laughter and actually be considered as semi-interesting. But I have a bad reputation of bashing my creations:rolleyes
Some mornings, it's just not worth chewing through the leather straps. :poke

I'd be mad as all get out if someone decided to change one of my characters, especially the one that puts you in the story. People should be asked if they agree with something.
As to Kurt being a priest, I just had to laugh. Although the Catholic church would take him sooner then me (you should see some of the looks I've gotten when I've said I want to be a priest). Though I do like him because he is religious, and I'll be the first to admit some people in my Church don't seem to listen to the Bible about accepting everyone. Still, I've been around men in the seminary, they can come in at any time, but they keep busier then anyone else 24-7. It's brutal, I was told be someone who dropped out.
*Where did all THAT come from
:eek

Glad you created him. Someday I'd like to do a side story with my characters and Nightcrawler.

okay, i am on the same site as dave.... BEATHE MAN!!! i cant believe it!!!!!!!!!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! okay ill probably talk and babble way too much over the subject of kurt...... i have so many questions.....okay ill list them:
1. were you able to think up kurts past or were you gone by then? (like the circus backround, mystique)
2. how long were you on the x-men team for?
3. can you send me all the comics ever made? (haha just kidding about that part! haha)
4. what was your most favorite comic with nightcrawler in it?
5. whats you favorite music? (curiosity kills the cat, i ask everybody this)
6. do you think your son will ever follow in your path? (just out of curiosity, dont have to answer if its too personal)
7. i heard that after you first created him but before he became a lighthearted man who loves his life that he was a brooding character but they changed that because wolverine and someone else was already brooding, is that true?
okay i think thats it.... i talk too much so dont mind me. ill just write my opinions on the next post...

*Edit by a moderator because of double pósting*

wow.... i still cant believe it..... anyway...
8. (sorry forgot this question) did you come up with the story of the bamfs?
okay now im done anyway, personally i wasnt born off of the comic book series. i may have wathced x-men with my brother but that was when i was a toddler and didnt remeber much. actually, unfortunately this will sound really really awful, what started my obsession over nightcrawler was the second x-men movie. There i said it. now i stink i know but now that ive gone online and found out as much as i possibly could i cant keep away from him. anyway, i guess the thing that intrigued me most was how its such a contridiction to his faith and how he looks. i was really into god and devil, heavin and hell concepts at that time and i really really liked this character. that and my favorite color is blue. but anyway i liked the idea of his faith but i DID NOT like the fact of him becoming a priest. as a matter of fact i LOATHED it. how in the world can a guy who is a ladies man possibly give that up and become a priest.... i am really glad he left. i cant believe they did that without your consent.... *mumbles curse words under her breath*. NOT COOL AT ALL. okay now im done with that. thank you to those who took the time to read this way too long entry!

*Edit by a moderator because of triple posting*

one last thing: after i went online and learned everything i possibly ever could about nightcrawler, i LOVED him haha. seriously i was so obsessed i made a double sided poster board on him (movie side, comic and evolution side). i know his life story by heart 5 times over. i was so obsessed i scared my own friends. but anyway the reason why he drew me in even more when i learned about him was that he loved his life, and at the time i hated mine, i envied that. now i am the happiest person in the world and i love to be myself (as you can see from my signature at the bottom)

wow, cool story, its so spy gear ;)lol

and with the whole mad about getting your characters jerked around, its funny in a ironic sorta way, i see people like liefeld who turn into total involvement weiners over their characters, and get pissed at marvel if it isn't their way, i don't like liefeld for that, and for...well other reasons, but i guess i never stopped to realize that it may affect someone to lose controle over someone they made.

and could hellsprite's nipples be anymore promininent lol, i guess shes missing the heat in hell

I totally relate to this post! Nightcrawler was the first X-Man I ever saw (some collector's card hanging upside down from trapeze holding a saber). I was immediately hooked.
