    Default Hank McCoy Appreciation

    Hank McCoy has always been one of my favourite comic characters- the intelligent nerd with the body of a monster has always just kinda resonated with me from reading about him in the O5 days to now. At times Hank has come across as a joker (original Avengers run), or a mad scientist (Legacy Virus days), or a lover (Brand at SWORD) but throughout I feel he's been a fun bouncing person to read about.

    Hank has been used badly in more recent years to me, since the cat Beast period a lot of the essence of the character was changed, but there is another thread for that discussion: https://community.cbr.com/showthread.php?36604

    I'd rather just show off Hank in his more fun moments here please; show off the stuff that made him one of my favourite characters weather that is from animation, live action, Human, Ape, Cat, Teen, or AU's.

    The classic 'Bouncing Blue' furry Beast was my first introduction to the character in the 80's, though I went back and read all the earlier stuff, this is the form I most associate with comic Beast. The current Ape form is probably by second fav comic look.

    Glad to see the return of Hank's appreciation thread. Thanks, Ogrebear!
    Beast has been very lucky to have several talented artists do artwork of him, and here's three of my favorites...

    Jim Lee




    Walt Simonson





    George Perez

    For sure, Hank is one of the classics! Here's hoping he does indeed get more time to shine as a more "good guy" a la decades past in the newer books.

    My three favorite Beast artists!! I hope Hank goes back to this classic look and personality. It’d be nice if we found out there’s a reason he’s been acting like he has lately... maybe his mind got merged with Dark Beast somewhere in Cerebro...

    One of my favs - I really hope his behavior is explained, kinda makes me sad to see his actions and the hate he gets now.

    He really started down the slippery slope when he brought the O5 from the past. It’s gotten worse since Krakoa though. Though I’d say he really started changing personality in Morrison’s run with the lion Beast crap..

    I'm ready for Jean to gather Scott, Bobby, Warren, and Simon Williams to stage some sort of intervention.

    Dear snobs, don't try to figure out my avatar.

    Sorry, I am agnostic. And your presumptions makes you something.

    Interested in knowing more about Balder? https://community.cbr.com/showthread...on-Thread-2020

    Actually, I posted this cover already in the other thread, which is great.



    And I found a recolored version. Would make a rather nice pin-up don't you think?

    Didn't the X-Men try to have an intervention for Beast at the end of the Bendis run, or somewhere around that time. Just about every X-man who was involved in the X-Comics was there. Some that weren't if I remember correctly. It was a big gathering of X-Men.

    I think that Beast blew their efforts off as a trial, and walked out on the entire group. Been a while since I read it, though.

    Seems like fans mostly post his original monkey form. When will Marvel realize this is what fans want?
