B is for Beast

Superheroes A to Z
B is for Beast

Full Name Hank McCoy
First Appearance X-Men #1 1963
Notable team affiliations: X-men,Avengers and Defenders

As I mentioned yesterday, I did not choose the obvious choice for a superhero that begins with the letter b.  To show how obvious it is I filmed this impromptu piece with my family.


Bisquick Man notwithstanding, Batman seems to be the obvious choice for superhero today.  If you know anything about me, know this - my choices are not obvious.

I like Beast because he brings humor and pathos to situations sorely in need of it.  Besides that "Oh my stars and garters" is one of the best superhero catchphrases ever.

But wait a second did my wife really guess Barney b4  she guessed man.  Let's see about that ...

  1. The Beast was an excellent choice. You could almost do the entire A to Z Challenge with Batman and his supporting cast.

  2. I love the look and color of the Beast. Such a provocative name (though I don't know exactly what he does). I'm guessing he's a good guy.

  3. Oh that was too funny! I'll go with Bisquick Man any day! So versatile. I'm a visiting minion with the Joyful Brigade. Have fun!

  4. Another one I haven't heard of with the Beast; but I have to say Bisquick Man could make me be a bit hungry I think.


  5. That's weird - I definitely wrote a post the other day. Did I fail to hit the 'publish' button? I said something like: I love the fact that a character called The Beast says 'oh my stars and garters'!
