Nifty story about Nightcrawler
9:17 pm 4 December 2016
Extraordinary X-Men (2015-) #7 - Jeff Lemire, Humberto Ramos
Someone - or something - has hurt Nightcrawler so badly he's huddled up in the corner of the room and it's up to Storm and Jean Grey to enter his mind and find out what's wrong and how they can help him. It's also another stories of how many people - including a hero - can take before they break.

The thing is, if you look at their lives and the traumatic events they deal with daily, it makes sense that so many comic books have dealt with trauma lately. It simply gets to be too much: how many attempted genocides, or lost loves, or violent deaths in general can they deal with without curling up into a ball and rocking back and forth?

At least in this issue, Jean and Storm are able to provide comfort in the form of solidarity: he is not alone and Nightcrawler will not have to deal with the trauma alone. It's still tied up with too much of an open end for me to be fully satisfied. Given that this moves onto another story arc after this, I'm left wondering how much they'll really deal with the kind of consistent trauma and what will happen to Nightcrawler now.
