Let us pause a moment to mourn the passing of Henry 'Hank' McCoy, 'Beast' to his Friends. I cannot make sense of this passing, and while his girlfriend Ororo may not be comforted by these words, Hank is probably looking down from heaven right now wondering why we went through such a big hullaballoo over someone who prefered to remain in the background. Hank, We will always remember your selfless dedication to the team, your steadfast pacifism, and your brilliance, both in the field and in the research you did in genetics. So basically, Hank never becomes a geneticist, never finds the cure for the legacy virus, and never mutates further into his CATLIKE FORM?What are the writers of Ultimate X-Men thinking? Oh well, heres a nice shot of him and Storm, who in the comics were dating.
