All the little nightcrawler guys in Wolverine and The X-men

#1 Posted by ShadowX (1218 posts) - - Show Bio

who do you think they are? I think they might be BAMFS, and maybe Wolverine will use them as some kind of staff at the school, like security, cleaning up and stuff like that. Or maybe since they have been shown as being Mischievous and around Quentin Quiere maybe he released them and keeps them as his little gang.

It'll be interesting to see what they are. I hope they're not Bamfs (only because I think they should stay a fairytale element). I really hope they're not some sort of Nightcrawler equivilant of the Stepford Cuckoos!! That'd just be wrong! Maybe they have something to do with the AoA Nightcrawler?

In the back of the issue in the course list one of the extracuriculars is something like "Bamf hunting" and Beast says early in the issue that he accidentally opened a transdimensional portal and that the mansion was infested with imps. I really dont have a clue what bamfs are but I'm assuming that is their official name

I thought there was already real Bamfs not just the fairytale ones.

Reckon they're Nightcrawler's offspring from another dimension where he was a man of loose moral and a voracious sexual appetite.

Ah, when I read that i took it to mean some sort of N'Garai... I didn't connect it to the 'bamfs'. I guess if they're Bamf-Hunting then they're a bit like the gnomes from the wizarding world of Harry Potter. A nuisance & cute addition for Mr Bachalo to draw every now & then ;)

@xerox_kitty: Beware Dr McCoy's interdimensional gateways opening near your private bar! Even though I didn't imagine you having a hidden stash.
 
Much as I liked the issue, the "class list" at the end was the one that truly had me in stitches.

Ok, so that doctor guy who wanted to kill Broo has clarified that they are indeed not Bamfs.

So what the heck are they? Since that alien doctor guy was cut off mid-sentence right before he explained what they actually are, I'm getting the impression it's something important the writers don't want us to know yet.

My guess is that they will somehow be physical manifestations or scattered fragments of Nightcrawler. Kinda like impish Madrox dupes, each one representing a part of Kurt. Perhaps the inter-dimensional portal Beast mentioned they appeared from was some part of the afterlife. Whatever Hank was up to at the time pulled Kurt's spirit through by accident, fragmenting it, and the only way it could exist in in our dimension was to resolve each fragment into something familiar to it, i.e. a bunch of mini-kurts. Because they are all fragmented bits of Kurt, they're acting purely on a basic instinctual level, which is why they don't talk but came to Kitty's aid in the WATXM, given Kurt's long history with Kitty.

I reckon there will be some event that merges them into a whole and effectively resurrects Kurt. Perhaps Beast will figure it out, or the bamfs will start to coalese into bigger and fewer bamfs each time they, er, 'bamf', until Kurt is born anew.

Would be nice. I miss Kurt.

from the recent issue of wolverine and the x men that big grey behemoth thing said they weren't bamf and if you look closely those troll things have night crawler tattoo's so what the hell is going on is night crawler coming back in some way

I'm not sure what the tattoos are supposed to mean. Kurt only had tats like that in the movie. The comic version never had any kind of markings like those.

I wouldn't know. I didn't read that story.

what if all the bamfs form nightcrawler when combined together?

I think they are an eventual reason to bring Kurt back on a side note I want one
