How agile is Nightcrawler?

#1 Posted by MUTANT413 (402 posts) - - Show Bio

Some sources I've seen have said that Nightcrawler has superhuman agility. Others say that he just has Olympic-level agility as a result of growing up as a circus acrobat? Has it ever been officially determined whether his agility level is superhuman or not.

Considering the showings of agility he has displayed, he is superhuman

He's listed on marvel.com and in the official handbooks at Olympic-level agility, not super-human.
Depends who you want to believe.

Super human.....I've got comic cards to prove my point. But I can't get to them now.....so just believe me.

My point being....I have several comic cards...one is the rankings of speed, agility, ect.....They have Nightcrawler above all in agility. Yes above spider-man...........I know it's not canon but you not gonna get something more canon than that. His feats would say super human too......

Don't go by comic cards ever.People always try to use those.They aren't legit.Marvel gave the company who makes them permission but the rankings aren't official.If you want rankings..get the handbooks.Not encyclopedias either..just handbooks.I have found inaccuracies in the encyclopedias (minor things) and that cards are almost always wrong.
Nightcrawler is like on the same level as Daredevil and Spider-Man.I believe Kurt,Murdock and Parker are the best acrobats in Marvel.

Agreed....I'm just saying that someone had to rank the Marvel characters to put them on the card. I'm sure Topps didn't do it.

I wouldn't say that DD is on the same level as Spiderman and Kurt. I think writters have taken him way past where he should have been based on his power set at creation.

Daredevil isn't on the same level of agility but he is on the same level of acrobatic ability.

Nightcrawler has fought with Spider-Man before, and Spidey had a bit of trouble with him. His agility is more than likely on par with Spider-Mans.

The official ratings put him at olympic level agility. He does not actually have agility as a power like Gambit. But he does have a prehensile tail and feet that can grip better than ours. I have also read that he has a more flexible spine like a cat that allows him to outperform humans.

I thought it was because of his flexible spine and the circus thing
