"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
All month long we will feature brand-new Cool Avengers and X-Men Comic Book Moments in celebration of their fiftieth anniversaries this month. Here is an archive of all the past cool comic moments that I’ve featured so far over the years.
Today, based on a suggestion by reader David P., we’re spotlighting a time when Nightcrawler weaponized his faith, so to speak, in Uncanny X-Men #159 by Chris Claremont, Bill Sienkiewicz and Bob Wiacek!
To set up the scene, Dracula has turned Storm into a vampire and the X-Men are trying to fight Dracula and rescue her…
Then we get the key scene. After Wolverine’s attempts at a cross fails (which is a cool scene seeing him try to make a cross with his claws), Nightcrawler’s attempt works…
That is a pretty badass moment.
