Nightcrawler is the best X-Men. His personality, his backstory, his appearance–is beautiful. He pulls at my heartstrings and then can make me laugh. He made me do a second take at my life and realize that things could be way worse; and even if it was worse, that there is still hope for the future. I think any character that is able to hit a chord like that is amazing. Kurt Wagner is a beautiful person, both inside and out, and he helped me see that in other people.
