Fuzzy memories: Newsarama talks to Nightcrawler writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who reveals that, like many comics readers, he'll be ignoring Chuck Austen's recent origin for the character:

“I read ‘The Draco’ — but it just doesn’t fit in with the kind of stories were going to be telling in Nightcrawler - at least not at first. Also, it’s really important for all of us working on the book that people who haven’t read ‘The Draco’ don’t feel like they’re missing some essential part of Kurt’s history when they pick up our book — which they won’t be. Although we’re not ignoring continuity, it’s going to be dealt with on ‘as needed’ basis. And whatever you’re going to need to know to enjoy the story will be there in the pages of our book.”
