One of the things that has amused me throughout my journey through X-Men comics is the shocking amounts of fanservice. Not the male-gaze fanservice with the female characters, that’s not shocking or unexpected at all. I’m talking about my favorite blueberry Nightcrawler. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a male character get used for fanservice as much as him! I think he might be used for obvious, transparent, glorious fanservice almost as often as a female character. Finally ladies, our time to enjoy gratuitous and mostly unnecessary fanservice has come!
Don’t believe me? Check out these examples below the cut (there will be many, so it’d be a looooong post if I didn’t use a cut). But here’s a teaser before we start.
