Kurt Wagner, a.k.a. Nightcrawler, was a mutant circus freak with a mysterious past. One night, a drunk member of the audience started shouting at him during his performance, calling him a "mutie freak", among other things. Kurt was fed up, and fled from the circus in the middle of the act. He was found by Magneto and recruited for the Brotherhood of Supremacy. After AvX Unleashed, he joined the X-Men, and became a hero.
