(X-Men: Soul Killer chapter 2 (fb) - BTS) <Three years prior to the main story> - Angus Graham was the Scottish national fencing champion.
(X-Men: Soul Killer chapter 2 (fb) - BTS) - Angus was known to compete at fencing tournaments throughout Britain.
(X-Men: Soul Killer
chapter 2 (fb) - BTS) - Sparring at the Edinburgh Open, Angus faced off against Kurt Wagner (aka Nightcrawler of the X-Men).
Using an image-inducer to appear like a normal human, Wagner did not use his teleportational or wall-climbing abilities (or his tail); as he did not utilize superhuman abilities beyond his own training and skills, Wagner considered competing against normal people fair.
The competition was even, with each man achieving four touches with their electric epee
(X-Men: Soul Killer chapter 2) - Advancing down the copper fencing strip with crisp steps, his knees deeply flexed, Angus smiled confidently behind the wire mesh of his mask.
When Wagner let his arm droop, exposing his wrist and encouraging his opponent to take a shot, Angus seemingly took the bait. However, when Wagner spun his epee in a circle-six parry, Angus disengaged, evading the defensive action, and then continued on, driving his point toward its target.
Wagner frantically hopped backward and parried again, barely catching Angus' weapon and sweeping it safely aside. Wagner then whipped his arm, his blade bowed, and his point flicked down, catching Angus on the white nylon sleeve of his jacket.
As the buzzer brayed, the director confirmed the touch and declared Wagner the victor.
The two fencers saluted each other, removed their masks, and shook hands. Grinning, Angus told Wagner, "Nice match, but I'll get you next time." Wagner acknowledged that he wouldn't doubt it.
