Today we talk about Henry “Hank” McCoy aka The Beast. Born with large freakish hands and feet, he got his nickname from the other children. However, he soon proved popular in High School because he became the star football player. After stopping a trio of robbers during a football game, he got the attention of the villain Conquistador and soon the X-Men came in to save him. He then attended Charles Xavier’s school and went on to work in a lab. Where he experimented with a serum that gave him his blue fur, fangs and pointed ears.
