One of my favorite characters on the X-Men animated series was always Beast, he’s a nerd with superpowers, what’s not to love? He doesn’t have many powers but his physical abilities couple with his skills make him formidable. I tried to work up a fighting style that revolved around grabbing opponents, disarming them, and tossing people around a lot. Beast Always seemed to be grabbing guns away from the bad guys and bending them out of shape in the show, which was always funny.

Complications
Mutant: As a mutant Beast must live in a world alongside those who hate and fear him because of his extraordinary gifts. Many seek to exploit or harm him simply because of the circumstances of his birth.

Monstrous Appearance: A brilliant scientist with doctorates in a number of fields Hank McCoy is one of the most brilliant minds of his time, a fact that is often forgotten by those who judge him by his outward appearance. He is unable to blend in with humans and this often leaves him feeling isolated when he is not surrounded by the family he’s found as one of the X-Men.

Scientific Curiosity: Beast is compelled by scientific curiosity, he seeks to understand the world and the forces that shape it.
