Every family needs a kooky uncle and for the X-Men, Beast fills that role. The brilliant scientist Dr. Henry "Hank" McCoy may look fearsome, but his is one of the kindest hearts in the Marvel Universe. From striving to help his fellow mutants--many of whom owe him their lives after he found a cure for the Legacy Virus--to stints on numerous super-teams, Beast has always put the interests of others first. 

Beast is rendered here deep in thought, holding his glasses by artists Digger T. Mesch, John Wrightson, Joe Allard and The Sideshow Collectibles Design and Development Team. The always thoughtful Beast is an excellent addition to any collection, and a vital part of the X-Family.

Who's Who:  Henry "Hank" Phillip McCoy was born with large hands and feet, but otherwise a seemingly normal baby.  It eventually became apparent that the massive amounts of radiation his father had been exposed to had affected Hank's genes. Ridicule from other children resulted in the nickname "Beast". Teenaged Hank came to the attention of the X-Men after Conquistador attempted to blackmail him and with their aid, the villain was defeated. Hank was then offered enrolment at the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters and a spot on the X-Men. Beast's appearance has changed over time, from simian to feline, partially due to experimentation with a hormonal extract that increased his agility and strength, and partially due to Sage's attempt to save his life.
