You know how at the end of every "event", everything goes back to the way it was, but there's ONE thing which remains leftover?

"Necrosha" restored Doug Ramsey to life and unlike all the other reanimated corpses, stayed alive. (Yay!)

"Age of Apocalypse" gave us X-Man and... ummm... Holocaust and err.... Sugar Man! (Yay?)

"Deadly Genesis"gave us Vulcan... which really isn't helping my case is it... but never mind.

So PLEASE "Age of X-Man", if you have to keep one thing, please let it be this #4 reveals that....

To the fuzzy elf... A DAUGHTER

Kurt's a daddy!

Age of X-Man: The Amazing Nightcrawler #4 (of 5)

Role model and idol to millions Kurt Wagner (better known as Nightcrawler) may have had a lapse in judgment a few years ago…and only Mystique can lead him to the fruit of his loins!

Writer: Seanan Mcguire Artist Juan Frigeri

Now I know we have Nocturne from Exiles, the daughter of an AU Kurt and Wanda Maximoff, who was terrific, but we only met Nocturne as an adult.

Gimme Kurt as exasperated, out-of-his-depth first time Dad who adores his daughter and wants everything that's best for her (because it's Kurt, of course he would) but is just sooooo knackered by the experience.

And I'm not sure if I'd want the mother to be a known character, or someone completely new.

Of course, if this means we have someone who legitimately calls Mystique "Grandma" (to her intense irritation) every time she shows up, that would just be gravy! :)

Why do you think Mystique would be irritated at being called Grandma? I bet she's thrilled one of her kids had a kid.

Mystique: Honestly I never even thought this was a possibility.

Nightcrawler: Why not?

Mystique: Well, you're a Priest....

Nightcrawler: Am I still a Priest? That may have been retconned.

Mystique: not important, anyway's you're a Priest, your sister can't touch anyone without killing them, so that means the only viable venue for a grandkid for the longest time was Graydon. And I'm pretty sure he'd castrate himself rather than father a kid considering there's a non zero chance that kid would be a mutant.

Nightcrawler: Oh yeah, I mean he'd totally have a mutant for a child if he did have a kid, I mean how could he not?

Mystique: Yeah, so I'm taking full advantage of this situation. *Snaps fingers and morphs into a pink sweatshirt that says 'Worlds best Grandma'* So we're doing this. What do you think.

Nightcrawler: I think word's best anything from you might be a push but I like the enthusiasm.

Mystique: Oh fuck you I'm having fun.

To be fair, I don't think there are that many grandmas in the Marvel Universe.

The only living grandma I can think of is Cannonball's mom.

And there'd be moments Mystique would take out the photo journals to show off pictures of Grandma Irene to her when she thought none of the other X-Men or Brotherhood were looking.

This is delicious. Now we know what made Destiny snort into her tea that one time.

Nightcrawler: Hey, blueberry. How was your play date with Grandma Raven?

Daughter: Fun! Grandma taught me how to snap necks!

Nightcrawler: Raven...

Mystique: It's a useful skill, Kurt. I wish I known it when your father and I broke up.

Daughter: We also got ice cream!

Mystique: Yeah, we hit Baskin-Robbins.

Nightcrawler: I should be more mad, but considering our lifestyle it probably isn't a bad idea to have her know some self defense. Besides which, I know that eventually she and Logan are gonna be hanging out.

Wolverine: Hey, I like hanging out with you Kurt, and I like having a sassy teen girl sidekick. So this is killing two birds with one stone.

Mystique: By hit I mean we purchased waffle cones with currency just like normal law-abiding humans. Why so little trust?

Nightcrawler: Mostly the betrayals.

Mystique: *pfft* Those. Trust me, Kurt, I would never do anything to jeopardize our relationship. You're my second-favorite offspring!

Nightcrawler: Oh, good. You like me more than Graydon. Who you shot.

Mystique: Now, honey, you're forgetting the bald one and the one with claws.

Yeah, presumably her mom has to be someone inside Nate's warp, and I don't believe that includes Wanda.

Totally into Dadcrawler, though.

Check out the solicitation for #5! It calls Nocturne by name. (But still doesn't say explicitly its Wanda's daughter).

• Nightcrawler’s life hangs in the balance as the Age of X-Man crumbles around him!
• Plus: The fate of baby TJ revealed!

My thoughts exactly. And why couldn't her mom be Wanda now that Marvel can properly acknowledge Magneto and family mutants again? (Fingers crossed)

Why would Mystique "Well better my kid die than me so over the waterfall you go and I won't bother to look for you or tell you I exist AFTER WE MEET AND YOU WONDER WHY WE LOOK SO ALIKE BUT I DON'T BOTHER TELLING YOU WHY" give a good Flying Spaghetti Monster damn about any grand-children she might have?

Because I was writing a funny skit and it doesn't have to make sense.

Sides, she looks pretty pleased in that cover. She's taking it better than Kurt at least.

Abusive/neglectful parents also tend to love having grandchildren.

isn't sex one of the things that isn't allowed in Nate-land?

That character design is super cute. But does it make Nightcrawlette the only mutant we've seen who's directly inherited a physical mutation from her parent?

Actually, quick question on that, since you're a Kurt fan. What's the status history on Kurt having fur?

Date: 2019-02-25 06:06 am (UTC)
From: [personal profile] donnblake
I ask because I see the "Blue skin, just like Mystique," thing a lot, which seems odd when nominally what everyone's seeing is not in fact his skin but that thin layer of fur. I mean, it could also be blue underneath, but Mystique is notably *not* covered in a thin layer of blue fur, and in fact what hair she does have in her default form is red.

Oh gods, a dream come true! I am Nightcrawler! This actually happened to me on a bus in Uganda. An old woman stroked my arm hair when I wasn't looking. I turned to her and she sheepishly said "Are you angry?" while still stroking my arm hair. I said, "No, go ahead."
