Beast (X-men) is stupid

I’ve read very very few comics past the early 90’s crash, but I remember everyone raving about how great they were around the time the first X-Men movie dropped up until a few years ago when they started going gay.

Yeah. It shows the level of stupidity and immaturity of the writers.

X-Men have always been a metaphor for the civil rights movement - but of note, Storm was the only black one for a while. The first five from the 60’s were white, of course. Adding Storm and the other new ones, Thunderbird was Native American, Banshee was Irish, Nightcrawler was German, Colossus was German, Sunfire was Japanese, and Wolverine was Canadian. A very broad group, to be sure. That’s a smart way to do it. Lots of different folks all supporting the same cause, even if they weren’t necessarily the target themselves.

But when 2007-2010 hit and X-Men became a metaphor for the gay movement (complete with several diseases all supposed to mimic AIDS), they went ahead and made a shitload of straight characters gay or bi to support it. That was dumb as shit. It didn’t add a ton of gay readers, and all the older readers who were used to Iceman, Beast, Wolverine, etc. all being straight got pissed, and rightly so.

Dude, dont tell me they made OG wolverine gay.

My take. Maybe I’m completely off but;

Almost all the image titles in the early/mid 90s were bad. Real bad. But I think they paved the way for a real golden age of comics. Image was all about the artists, but somehow in there the writers carved some space for themselves and we had a great era of writer driven comics writing their own stories with their own characters. Preacher, Y the Last Man, a bunch of Alan Moore stuff etc.

Marvel and DC picked up on this and started to give their talent way more reign. Writers could finally write their own stories in small 6-10 issue isolated stories without having to worry about the bigger picture or try to work around the continuity of a bunch of different ongoing storylines. -Look at how many great Batman stories were written during that time period.

It all became a big cycle around 2008. They couldn’t help themselves and devolved back into the era of massive multi book storylines and writers having to advance large storylines. The quality suffered big time.

#Respect Dr. Henry Philip “Hank” McCoy


#Original Timeline

Not all of us can fit in so easily, you don’t shed on the furniture

When Hank met Charles he was a scientist and closeted Mutant until he is accidentally outed by Xavier. After the Hellfire club (a cult of evil mutants bent on world domination) were defeated Hank joined Charles’s X-men. Later in 1965, when Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters opened, Dr. Hank McCoy took up a teaching position. During that year, however, America assumed a direct military role in the Vietnam War. As the war escalated throughout the mid-late 1960s, many students and staff at the school were drafted into the military, and ultimately, the school was unable to function. By the early 1970s, Xavier’s school was defunct, and Xavier reverted his mansion to a private residence. McCoy resided at the mansion, helping Xavier tend to the affairs of his estate. During this time, McCoy developed a serum that not only regulated his mutation but enabled Xavier to walk again. Years later but before the development of the Mutant Cure, Hank had stopped taking the serum repressing his mutation and began working in a government position as the Secretary of Mutant Affairs.

Revised Timeline

I probably shouldn’t be asking this sort of thing, but in the future, do I make it?

First Class happened and Wolverine came with his time travel shenanigans. Hank continued using his serum to maintain human form since the events of 1973. He became a teacher at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters when it reopened In 1983 and eventually became its headmaster after Charles retired.

Ps: All X-Men: First Class feats also apply to this version of Beast as well

VI. Appendix

A. Different Mutations

Beast has undergone several physical transformations during his life. Beast usually has the same powers basic powers in his different transformations, but occasionally experiences some subtle changes.

  • Human form: He had abnormally large hands and feet, but otherwise, he was fairly normal looking. He had superhuman strength, agility, durability, etc. Beast did return to his human form briefly in mid-80s.

  • Beast form (grey): When Hank discovered the chemical cause of mutation, he took it and transformed himself. His physicals seemed to get a slight boost. Most notably, he gained a fairly impressive healing factor. He was also more feral and prone to bestial rages.

  • Beast form (blue): Perhaps his most classic look. In this form, he maintained his personality and intelligence. However, his healing factor was reduced. For a short period (maybe 1987-1990), Beast got much stronger, potentially as high as 70 tons, but he seemed to return to a lower level of strength later.

  • Cat form: After Beast was injured, Sage affected his mutation to save him, altering his form. In this form, Hank once again had stronger animalistic instincts and he could go feral. Physically, his strength and speed remained about same (lower than his brief peak), but he had claws which he used in combat.

  • Gorilla-Bat form: No major changes except for his appearance. However, he did suffer some initial health problems as his body experienced difficulties with his continuing transformations.

So i will read through this after my comment but couldn’t someone just shoot Cyclops, Havik, Storm , Beast, etc, and kill them? X-men that don’t heal or have the extra sense that something is about to happen.

I hear he sucks cock

Until he is blue
