Which is pretty nice!
Oh the Nightcrawler is crazy issue!
Many months ago. Nightcrawler is doing a Weapon X mission. He’s teleporting and killing fools, all over the place.
One month ago. Rogue has recently come back to the X-Men. Back in Annual One, Gambit died. Before he did, he asked Rogue to kiss him, which she did. Now she has his powers and only his powers. She’s back at the Xavier School to try to control her new powers. For a while there, she had Gambit’s thoughts and voice in her head but now she just has the powers.
Last night. Westchester General Hospital. Dazzler’s Room. Dazzler finally wakes up out of her coma. Nightcrawler is by her bedside. Now that she is awake, he teleports her out of there.
Moments later. They are in a cave, he has made a bed for her to lay down on. He tells her that the X-Men were attacked and the team is scattered.
Today. Xavier’s School for the Gifted. Xavier is meeting with Wolverine, wanting to make sure he is okay. He is. Xavier gets a phone call, he is informed that Dazzler is missing.
In the cave, Nightcrawler has gotten Dazzler some food. She really appreciates all that Nightcrawler is doing for her and touches his hand. Poor Nightcrawler, this touch is all that he needs to go even further crazy in love with her. She is still waiting for Angel to appear, as they are a bit of a couple.
Back at the Mansion. Xavier explains to the assembled team that Dazzler is missing. She could have just gotten up and left but Xavier wants to make sure.
Nightcrawler comes into the meeting, Shadowcat tells him that Dazzler is missing. He does some decent acting.
Wolverine wants to team-up with Nightcrawler. Nightcrawler tells Wolverine that he is faster by himself. You can see the panel where Wolverine sniffs Nightcrawler’s hand.
There is an ad for Civil War with Iron Man punching Captain America.
The team leaves and Wolverine informs Xavier that Nightcrawler stinks of Dazzler. Xavier sensed it as well. Xavier makes Wolverine promise to not use excessive force.
Nightcrawler gets back to Dazzler. Shadowcat saves her from being possibly murdered.
Nightcrawler knows this is now the worst case scenario.
Nightcrawler gets to the surface, as Shadowcat and Dazzler do. The team is ready to confront Nightcrawler.
What I like about the rest of the issue is that we get to see how Nightcrawler would take down the X-Men. He punishes Wolverine to his face. Dazzler is not pleased that she was being held hostage. I imagine she’s thinking of how horrible her life was going to be like in the future.
Colossus tries to confront Nightcrawler. Nightcrawler is disgusted by Colossus’ lifestyle, which is a shame as that is the best part of Ultimate Colossus. Nightcrawler teleports Colossus into the cave. Nightcrawler teleports Wolverine away from the team. Then, Nightcrawler teleports Cyclops into the air. Later, he punches Storm to her face. He is one of those face punchers you hear so much about. Iceman tries to freeze Nightcrawler but he teleports Storm right into the blast. So far, so good. Rogue throws some charged playing cards.
The cards lose all of their energy before they collide. Rogue is taken back by the last of power. Shadowcat tries to comfort Dazzler. Cyclops, because no one is trying to save him, optic blasts the ground, and lands in soft mud.
Iceman keeps trying to tag Nightcrawler. Rogue is trying to charge some rocks. Colossus comes out of the ground.
Dazzler finally gets to start punching Nightcrawler.
Nightcrawler tries to explain himself, through tears. He was hoping the time alone with him, Dazzler would have grown to love him and they would have just laughed about this later. Everyone feels sad and disgusted by this.
Rogue touches Nightcrawler, absorbs his powers and a bit of his memories. She starts teleporting all over the place.
Wolverine finally gets back as the fight is way over.
Xavier Institute for Gifted Children. Xavier is explaining how Nightcrawler is going to get treatment.
Dazzler quits as that is horribly unjust. She could have been raped for days before anyone even knew she was in a cave.
Issue ends with Rogue talking to Nightcrawler, she has some of his memories. She tells him that she knows. She knows that he is a monster.
There is an ad for V for Vendetta, now on DVD.
There is a two page story about why Xavier’s cat’s name is Mystique. It is because Emma named her that as she destroys everything, just like Mystique.
Inside back cover is an ad for Zoom, which is not very good.
Back cover ad is for he Dodge Caliber, that the Hulk thinks is a new boom box.
