    Default The Beast in X Force

    I found the Beastís Journal entry in the new issue to be wierd. He complained about Forgeís behavior...when McCoy was the bro-iest of super heroes for years in his Avengers days. Also... how coils Forge...with his human strength...stagger the mighty Beast with a back slap?

    Perhaps Beast was killed and replaced with a Kroaka clone?

    Beast hasn't been "fun" since at least Morrison or Whedon. He's a total buzzkill now.

    Are you sarcastically trying to say that Beast is "fun"? :P

    He specifically said that Beast is not fun, and hasn't been in years.

    Ok I didn't noticed that at first look. My bad. Yeah, I can see why he isn't fun anymore. He used to be though especially in Animated Series.

    Yeah - gone are the days of 90's Beast, replaced with the hypocritical buzzkill of today. Teen Beast was fun though, so it must be a choice that this is how he is now.

    Yet more heel turn going on in the X-Men...Hank was the guy so incensed at what Scott was doing he brought the X-Men out of time and then turned his back on Scott....now he is running their black ops team and making moral justifications for bringing a lobotomized guy back to his father to score political points.

    Dark Beast had a sense of humor. This Beast acts like a worst version of Henry Gyrich.

    I agree. I loved Avengers/Defenders/X-Factor/90’s X-Men Beast, but I haven’t liked him since Morrison....

    During Fabian Nicezias run Beast was a comedian. Then they made him a Debbie Downer.

    I proffer the more comedic take Beast. He's just a better character, in my opinion. It is kind of sad to see someone who was once one of the X-Men's nobler members go down this
    kind of path.

    I think that the Beast in X-Force is the best version of that character that we have seen in a while, even if he does stll come across as something of a hypocrite.

    When did Beast become a hypocrite? He criticized Cyclops for running X-Force, and now he’s performing questionable, increasingly immoral acts that makes Utopia Era Cyclops and Wolverine seem like saints?

    Again, I think Beast is just one of those people who thinks it's OK so long as he does it. He thinks he can have a level of control he simply doesn't have.
