Nightcrawler is a male comic superhero who features in Marvel Comics.



Kurt Wagner was the Mutant son of the shapeshifting Mystique and the demonic appearing Azazel. He was born twenty years ago in Germany when his mother disguised herself as a pretty woman that caught the eye of a human noble named Christian Wagner. She had married the man and took the name Raven Wagner though her husband was unaware of her true nature as she used this time to enjoy wealth and a life of luxury. Secretly, she took on the identities of various women to have affairs with them before returning to her married life where her husband Christian wanted to have a child with her but failed to get her pregnant. One day, Raven was introduced to another noble named Azazel who charmed and enchanted her where she revealed her true form to him as they embarked on an affair. This led to her becoming pregnant with Azazel's son though he showed no interest in a romantic encounter and departed where he bade her to pass the child off as her husband Christian's son. (Uncanny X-Men v1 #428)
