View Full Version : Nightcrawler/Mystique/mutant gene.....
06-03-2003, 05:40 PM
am i the only one who noticed when Pyro (if i remember correctly) said "research has shown men carry the mutant gene so technically it's your fault [points at iceman's father]"... what about the fact that Mystique is Nightcrawler's mother??? Then again, since the father isn't revealed, who knows. but come on, they're both blue, surely SOMETHING came from Mystique... was that line just a joke?

my apologies if that question comes off totally insipid, but since i never read the comic, just watched the old animated series religiously, i don't really remember cause it's been awhile.

hmmm. . . Good question. Perhaps He just got some physical features from her, but the powers came from his father.

I think it was a brief break from comics canon for the sake of a little humor.

I'm inclined to believe what Thom said... I just think they were going for some humor right there.... and it worked, I thought.

I'll play "follow the leader" and agree with Bigkid and Thom. It was a very funny moment in the film.

That's like saying that Mr. Fantastic and Plastic Man are distant cousins because they both have stretchy physiques.

see my post in the "Nightcrawlers Parents" thread for an interesting twist...
aka Hunk McCoy "Is it true what they say about guys with big feet? Yes they do need big shoes."
"So let me fill my children's hearts, With heroes tales and hope it starts, A fire in them so deeds are done, With no vain sighs for moments gone."

Artie and Leech are both short. Sunfire and Firestar both shoot fire. Forge and Mirage are both Native American...
Give the writers a little slack

dood, obviously i'm not saying that just cuz they look alike they're related, we already know they ARE related. i was just wondering if that line was a complete joke (which i thinking it was) or if the similarities that they DO share hadn't anything to do with the parentage, Mystique as Nightcrawler's mother. honestly, anyway, i'm over it now, so whatevah.
