Prime Kurt has always been an open catholic who respects other religions and sexuality. The Ultimate version is the worst kind of bigot catholic. Introduced in Ultimate X-Men #7 (2001) by Mark Millar and Adam Kubert, Kurt was a member of a travelling circus until he was captured by the Weapon X program. He was eventually sent to help capture the X-men but eventually helped them escape and joined the team alongside fellow captive Rogue. He would become friends with Angel and developed feelings for Dazzler, but she began dating Angel.

He also became close with Colossus but became enraged when Colossus came out as gay, which was “against his believes”. He would kidnap Dazzler and tried to force her to love him. He would be captured, and Xavier worked to rehabilitate him. He apologized to Colossus and the two restored their friendship. He would even join Colossus’s team of X-men that splintered against Xavier’s team. This team was addicted to the Banshee drug and was eventually defeated by the other X-men team before rejoining the team. Kurt was eventually killed by Magneto during his Ultimatum Wave.

This version of Nightcrawler would receive a figure as part of Toybiz’s X-men classics series 3.

Recommend Figure: Toybiz X-men Series 3 – Ultimate Nightcrawler

  • Background:
    • When Nightcrawler joined the X-men, he would receive a costume that was similar to his 616 counterpart but in the colors of the Ultimate X-men team. He would also bamf in yellow smoke rather than the purple one of the Prime universe.
  • Why do you need it for your collection?
    • If you want to build the Ultimate Universe, you may want to get this, particularly for the Ultimate X-men team.
  • Does it need a remake?
    • Yes. It has a silly action feature that hinders the figure.


Below you will find a gallery of suits that still need to be made. I have included what I think are the possibilities of them being made. Note that these are my personal opinions and not facts. Please let me know if I have missed anything.
