Little is detailed about Kurt's life before the zombie plague arrived on Earth-2149, however it can be presumed that it followed much the same path as Nightcrawler of Earth-616.

Presumably, Kurt is at the Xavier Institute when it is attacked, and arrives at the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier with the other X-Men and Magneto.

With the extremely varied bunch all assembled on the Helicarrier, Nick explains how serious he believes the situation to be; that it is the end of the world. He also explains that whatever the histories of those assembled, they are all on the same side.

It can also be assumed that he was part of the team sent back down to the surface to battle the zombies, unsuccessfully, and was zombified on the SHIELD Hellicarier by the Zombiefied Fantastic Four alongside Doctor Strange, Thor, Storm and Colossus, while Nick Fury was eaten.[1]

It would seem as when Beast and Reed Richards find a sizeable stash of meat in Latveria and the surrounding area, a zombified Nightcrawler and a huge horde zombies head off to lay siege to Castle Doomstadt. A few of them manage to get through the magical force-field protecting the castle, and confront Dr Doom, Scarlet Witch, and Ashley J. Williams. Scarlet Witch is bitten by the zombified Punisher, and the other two make their getaways.[2]

Presumably, Kurt gets held up by the risen Deadite Legion, and at some point returns to New York, but his ultimate fate is unknown, though he was seen at the undead legion of zombies when ultimate Reed came.[3]

He probably was eaten by the zombie galacti when they decided to test their new powers.


Seemingly those of the Kurt Wagner of Earth-616.

  • This is unclear why Nightcrawler didn’t use his teleportation power to escape the zombiefied Fantastic Fours on the SHIELD Hellicarrier. He could have used it to escape the Zombies Galacti, too, but due to the fact he never appeared again, he’s presumably dead.
