he's had a few minis, that was more than what i needed.... though seeing Amanda Sefton again would be amazing.

i would like it. but it wouldnt sell enough to keep it afloat. they test these things, especially with the mentioned mini's.
i want to Sefton back as well, big time.

If he did it would need a lot of great writing, important story arcs and character development. I don't remember anything too exciting in the minis. Excalibur was always a  "Nightcrawler and friends" book.

He had his own series for a short time.  It had great artwork, but weak story.  He was the X-men's resident occult specialist, but every story followed he same predictable and weak pattern.  He would get a report of some strange occurrence, investigate and reach a dead end, ask for Amanda Sefton's help, then solve it for a happy ending, while also resolving some love related crisis all over the course of 4-5 issues.  It was also a little wierd because  he had become this uber-cassanova who was dating a very beautiful nurse while Storm, Rachael, and a variety of  models fought over his affections.  I was dissappointed in the run since Kurt is easily my favorite X-man, and it would have been nice to see some actual thought and effort put into the book.

To be honest, I love the character but don't want to see him in his own series.  When any of the X-Men have a solo series, they tend to be weakly plotted and badly portrayed.  They also don't seem to run along with current events.  I think I'd rather have a few issues of X-Men with the main emphasis on Nightcrawler, but with current events and other characters appearing as sub-plots.

I don't think he is a strong enough character i mean i really love nightcrawler but i think that he works better on a team and shouldn't be on his own hes kinda like Martian manhunter in that way know what im sayin they just work better on teams and don't have like villians that they could fight in their own series cuz they don't have villians that specifiacly hate them like batman has with joker or someone

Nightcrawler's just a great supporting character.  It's tough to work past that.

@Drafta:  agreed, though i love him

@Drafta: It is tough. but what he needs is a writer who under stands him witch the last one did not.  He definitly needs his own roughs gallery I willsay that the last writer did try to give him one but like I said he did not understand him.

@Watch Dog: Perhaps   I do not think it would be impossible just tough.  Nightcrawler has many fans, all that's standing in his way is development.

I think Bill Willingham should write a Nightcrawler book he did issue #49 of X-men Unlimited that was all about Nightcrawler. He wrote Kurt with the perfict amout of morality, guile,and intelagence.   It was a great little story that I would recommended to any fan of the fun loving fuzzy elf.
