From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cosplayer as Beast.

Hank McCoy (also known as Beast) is a fictional character, a Marvel Comics superhero created by writer Stan Lee and artist/co-writer Jack Kirby. The character first appeared in X-Men #1 in November 1963. He has become a member of the mutant group, the X-Men and is a genius despite his animal-like appearance. He is also a mutant and is incredibly agile and strong with distinctive blue fur covering his entire body. In fact, Beast is both the brains and brawn of the team, preferring to think his way out of danger but more than capable of putting up a fight if he feels threatened or that his friends are in danger. He has been taken in a more darker Direction since The Krakon Age.
