The Incredible Nightcrawler

Kurt Szardos was born the son of Mystique, one of the High Evolutionary's test subjects. When he was born had the appearance of a normal human, however he was selected to undergo a form of cross species experimentation which resulted in him having above human characteristics, and the appearance of a demon. His mother did not want him to suffer any more horrific experiments and so she sent him away down a river from Wundagore.

Kurt would then spend much of his life being rejected by humanity, and at one point was even part of a circus, and his appearance and skills gave him the name Nightcrawler. while he was there, he was given water which had been contaminated with Terrigen. After he drank it he experienced Terrigeneisis as a result of his mother's DNA, and gained the power of teleportion. he then used his powers to escape his cage, and went on a journey to uncover who he was and where he came from in the end when an ancient extremely powerful evil being known as apocalypse rose again threatening to destroy the earth night crawler died in order to stop him for good when they collided with the sun.
