I haven't had a chance to really read anything Nightcrawler has been in since they brought him back.

Have they given any more explanation about what the Bamfs are or where they come from?

So the next round starts on Monday?

See, Killer Croc should be powerful enough to take on low tier metahumans on paper.

But then you realize that security guard beat him. And he's never really won a fight against anyone else, ever, either.

If Juggernaut is magically empowered to be the living embodiment of the unstoppable force, I think Killer Croc is magically empowered to be the living embodiment of the jobber aura.

Sweet. Looks like I'm in on this too.

Danny would make a heck of a fight out of it, but in the end I really can't see him beating Namor.

We're discussing this as though the writing is consistent. As with all supers, the powers increase or decrease to fit the storyline. Most people are choosing benchmarks arbitrarily. I've read enough to think the fight could go either way.

But one more thing that annoys me about comic logic is that NC never teleports closer than punching- or kicking-range. If he was holding a dagger or any other object and teleported so close to an enemy that the object materializes in him, he could immediately incapacitate the foe. He could stop Remy without killing the foe by teleporting a long, thin object into one of Remy's hands or legs, then clock him while he's stunned, or take out another limb. But he never does that. What the hell?

Nightcrawler never does that because its not in his character.
Sure, he fights with swords sometimes and has no problem with stabbing somebody, but the easy 'insta-win' moves simply aren't his style. He grew up on Errol Flynn swashbuckling movies, and likes to act the part of the "dashing young scallion saving the damsel in distress" kind of guy. He likes to put some 'style' in his fights, so he'd much rather face a guy in a head-on fair fight than stab him in the back.
