At the end of Uncanny X-Men #600, the Beast was subject to a “trial” from his peers regarding his meddling in time. But it was a court that didn’t seem to have any teeth at all. But in a strop, he left with his metaphorical rather than actual tail between his legs, and taking his time machine with him, as he wandered off to the Inhumans.
In the Uncanny Inhumans today, under attack from a Time Traveller changing the past of the Inhumans and wiping people out of existence as a result (the Gruenwald rules of Marvel time travel have not applied for many meta-years), he is finally in his element.
But did the lesson from the trial sink in? Is he showing humility now? Perhaps being less sure of his abilities?
Could a Trial Of Hank McCoy II be on its way? As Eva Bell said back in #600…
Could a massive Jeff Lemire/Brian Bendis/Charles Soule “broken time” event still be on the cards?
