i think nightcrawler should have his own series
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
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.
