UNCANNY X-MEN #140
John Byrne and Chris Claremont unite Canada and Germany's finest as Nightcrawler, Wolverine and Alpha Flight work together to battle the Wendigo, a mammoth monster whose vocabulary fails to extend beyond his own name, but whose hunger knows no bounds. After a grueling battle, what looks like a triumphant victory for our heroes takes an unexpected and devastating turn you will not see coming!
CLASSIC X-MEN #23
In one of his very first solo stories, Nightcrawler channels his inner Indiana Jones upon finding himself shipwrecked on a mysterious island. Bringing together a cadre of talent including Chris Claremont, John Byrne and Dave Cockrum, "Lost" meets "Survivor" in an extraordinary escapade that brings out the audacious side in our fuzzy, blue X-Man!
EXCALIBUR (1988) #1
With Alpha Flight protecting Canada and the X-Men defending the United States, who can her Majesty's kingdom look towards for safety against evil? Leave it to one German, a couple of Yankees and England's greatest hero to help form Excalibur, Great Britain's very own super hero task force! So how do Nighcrawler, Kitty Pryde and Rachel Summers fare on the seedy London streets? The answer comes with unprecedented results, courtesy of Chris Claremont and Alan Davis!
EXCALIBUR (1988) #16
Chris Claremont and Alan Davis revitalize Nightcrawler's keen sense of heroism and mythical whimsy in a tale that capitalizes on swashbuckling sword fights, romantic interludes, and, above all, an engaging and electrifying hero worth cheering for. Believe it or not, ladies, chivalry lives!
NIGHTCRAWLER (2004) #12
Nothing says Happy Birthday in the Marvel Universe like a surprise party and an angry, uninvited guest. In this story from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Darick Robertson, Nightcrawler finds himself tormented by Mephisto's mind games, his inner demons and unrequited crush on Christine Palmer. Let's hope at least the cake tastes good! Glücklich Geburtstag, Kurt!
