Nightcrawler Synergy Guide

Nightcrawler is a Mutant class champion who forms a synergy with 10 other characters, available as a 3-Star, 4-Star and 5-Star champion.

Raised from childhood in an Eastern European circus, Half-Demon Mutant Kurt Wagner has always existed on the outside. Gifted with the power to teleport at will, but marred with his father's demonic appearance, Kurt eventually found a place for himself amongst Xavier's X-Men. Despite his intimidating outward appearance, Nightcrawler remains positive and optimistic, always using his powers for the betterment of both mankind and mutantkind.
