Synopsis for "The Gift"
The X-Men are waiting in the hospital to hear of news about their teammate, Jean Grey. Nightcrawler wants to do more than wait and teleports off into the city. He comes across a young boy (Daniel Cameron) outside in the cold and as they strike up a conversation Nightcrawler uses his image inducer to hide his true form. They are stopped by a security guard who tells them to leave the plaza because its closed, so they go for a bite to eat. Nightcrawler is concerned for the boy's well being and wonders if he has a sick friend in the hospital as he does. He eventually convinces the boy that he should go home and they walk the streets, cutting through Central Park. Nightcrawler teleports and cuts him off, alarming the boy to his speed. Nightcrawler then teaches the boy how to juggle and they bond until dawn. He walks him to his doorstep, and considering him his friend, shows him his true form, as a blue faced mutant. The boy accepts him and tells him that his lady friend in the hospital will be just fine. Nightcrawler returns to the hospital later and asks a nurse where his new friend was. He is told that he just died of cancer, meaning he met his ghost and helped it move on.
