Traitor! The Beast Sells Out in Astonishing X-Men #16

Posted by October 12, 2018 Comment

The Beast has revealed his true colors once again in a preview of next week’s Astonishing X-Men #16. Known for turning on his own species in the past, Beast is seen in this preview offering to work for the Office of National Emergency, a corrupt government agency that has kidnapped him and his fellow X-Men, right after they physically assaulted his teammate, Dazzler.

It’s unclear whether Beast is playing the evil General Callahan, or whether he’s simply being true to his character, like when he sided against Cyclops, his childhood friend. Then again, Beast selling out may simply be a projection of writer Matty Rosenberg, a former indie darling, becoming a hotshot Marvel Exclusive writer.

Astonishing X-Men #16 hits stores on Wednesday.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
