Nightcrawler (comics) - Wikipedia
This appears as a minimum movement for him, but crossing a vast distance in our universe. With practice he has learned how to gauge that distance with pinpoint accuracy. He is unaware beyond the general direction of where he will appear if the distance is outside of his line of site.
Azazel mechanics may be basically the same but his difference could be: Azazel may be able to physically sense, but not see, the universe, seconds before reappearing and simply choose a different point of re-entry into our universe. He would not know what was around him, but he would know if the area were clear for re-entry into our universe.
Azazel's awareness may include a more powerful link to the location in which he is teleporting. He may simply be able to psychically see or be aware of the location he wants to teleport into. This would make him the ultimate ambush fighter, able to see and be exactly where he wants to be every time he teleports. Azazel's power may also come with an automatic, natural safety mechanism allowing him to teleport to any space, but automatically displacing him into the next clearest space if a space is occupied.
Pixie, Mercury, and Rockslide were horrified at how brutal the older X-Men were towards the demons. An octopus-type creature attacked Kurt until Pixie jumped in and killed it with her Souldagger. Kurt noticed Illyana chained to a pillar, and she asked him to stab her with Pixie's Souldagger, as it was the only way and he was the only one to do it because he was attuned to magic.
He apologized and stabbed her; at that moment Colossus punched Kurt, and Witchfire finished making her fifth and final Bloodstone from the now demonic Pixie. Unfortunately, the demon managed to use the Bloodstones to summon the Elder Gods. Through their combined efforts, the X-Men and Magik managed to banish both Witchfire and the Elder Gods, but not without losing four of the five Bloodstones. Furious at losing another part of her soul, Pixie fled.
Kurt Wagner (Earth-616)
Being told by Illyana to let her go, Kurt consoled Magik about the theology of a soul, before she teleported them back to Earth. Kurt, along with Colossus, Cyclops, and the former New Mutants team, convinced her to stay with them and join the X-Men. It was revealed that Proteus had been resurrected and had taken possession of Blindfold who had the vision of going to Muir Island in the first place.
Nightcrawler's discovery of the lethal methods used by X-Force led to an argument between him and Cyclops. While teleporting during a battle with BastionBastion extended his arm into the space in which Nightcrawler would materialize. Nightcrawler rematerialized around Bastion's arm, fusing with it. Though mortally wounded, he managed to teleport Hope to Utopia, telling her before expiring that he believed in her. When Wolverine was possessed by a demon called the Hellverine, Nightcrawler entered his friend's mind to help him drive out the invader.
The other X-Men who entered Logan's mind to help him assumed that Nightcrawler was just a manifestation of Wolverine's mind, rather than the real one. When Azazel mounted an attack on Heaven using his connection to Kurt as a door, Nightcrawler instructed a few Bamfs to create a portal to Heaven inside the Jean Grey School of Higher Learning, allowing him to summon the X-Men to aid him in his fight.
Despite the tensions between them, Nightcrawler stated that he wanted all of his family to be present. Nightcrawler later left the party to confront Mystique when she was successfully freeing Azazel.
While attempting to reunite with Amandahe was duped by Margali to grant her sanctuary at the school, where she forcefully extracted the knowledge about the Beyond from Beast and Storm in order to open a portal to the Afterlife. Nightcrawler and Amanda managed to foil her, but at the cost of Amanda getting stranded in the Void. In the end, they defeated Voge, breaking up his slavery racket, and returned the enslaved children, taking those orphaned by the slavers into the school.
Storm and the other X-Men who followed her decided to support Captain Marvel 's side, to require the Inhumans ' help to solve their kinds' extinction from breathing that mist. Nightcrawler decided to join Magneto and Iron Man's side. He does this by displacing himself through an alternate dimension briefly and reappearing in a desired, pre-selected location.
Nightcrawler's teleportation ability is also affected by direction — north-south along Earth's "magnetic lines of force" is easier than east-west against them. Nightcrawler can warp greater distances by locking onto them as a form of way point marker in order to teleport longer distances, even trans-dimensional ones. Because teleporting into other solid matter would cause severe injury or death, he will only teleport to an area he is familiar with or that he can clearly see at the time or has seen in the past.
The process of teleportation places a strain on his endurance and that of any passengers; carrying mass other than his body and clothing when teleporting adds additional strain to his body. Through practice, he has been able to teleport with a passenger over a lengthy distance without exhausting himself.
Extensive training has raised his tolerance for teleportation, but most of his passengers lack this tolerance. Therefore, one of his tactics is to grab opponents and make several quick teleportations with them. They usually become weakened or even pass out from the strain.
A loud " bamf " noise is always present whenever he teleports being the sound of air rushing to fill the space he was just occupying. His teleporting also causes a slight change in the atmosphere before he arrives, although only superhumans with heightened senses such as Daredevil can detect it. His agility far surpasses that of an Olympic-level gymnast, and his bone structure allows him great flexibility. His spine is more flexible than an ordinary human, enabling him to remain in a crouched position for a long time and perform contortionist-type feats without causing any damage to his spine.
Nightcrawler's balance and bodily coordination are all enhanced to superhuman levels. He has the ability to cling to surfaces through microscopic suction cups located on the pads of his hands and feet. He also possesses superhuman dexterity, being able to manipulate items and fence with either hand, both feet, and his tail.
In the story, Vanisher removes some of the Darkforce that formed his costume and threw it at Kurt, who disappeared.

He then reappeared from within the Darkforce on the ground, saying that it was like "a pool of shadow" and that he "fell right through it". His tail is strong enough to not only support his body weight, but also lift an adult man completely off the ground at the same time, and is deft enough to fight with while holding a sword or blunt object.
Nightcrawler's eyes which are constantly glowing grant him a marked degree of heightened night vision. He has also served as the team's pilot and medic when more qualified X-Men were not around to do so. He and Wolverine were also the mechanics of the X-Men's Blackbird jet for a long time. He is also recognized by other Marvel characters as the leading authority on teleportation, with Spider-Man and Daredevil contacting him for information and advice following their first encounter with Francis Klum.
Nightcrawler deduced from analysis of photographs of a crime scene that a man had been killed by someone else teleporting inside the victim, despite having never witnessed such a thing before. Magik states that Kurt is attuned to magic and thus able to wield her Soulsword and Pixie's Souldagger. Roger Stern recounted, "It happened when I was the writer of Dr. Strangeback when writers were still occasionally listened to. Chris had come up with the latest of several crazy ideas and declared that Nighcrawler's father was Nightmare.Mystique and Night Crawler
And I replied with something like, 'No, he's not. I'm not going to let you appropriate one of my character's major villains.
And not too long after, I [became] the X-Men editor and was able to make sure that didn't happen for long enough that Chris eventually changed his mind. However, Marvel felt the idea to be too controversial and an alternative origin was developed. Nocturne has since referred to Nightcrawler as her father.
A devout Catholichis demonic appearance obviously makes it very difficult to attend Mass. Despite this, as mutants in the Marvel Universe become more accepted, he even managed to almost become a Catholic priest ; unfortunately his studies were interrupted by a villainous group known as "The Neo".
He sees himself as a swashbuckler, usually comparing himself to Errol Flynn. He is, despite his looks, always charming and gallant, and several storylines contain Kurt's love life as a conflict to his religious nature.
