    Look man, I warned you that Robot Santa would not look kindly upon pregnant Batman, and you had to go and test his kindness protocols.

    Don't really get the eye-bleeding part there

    pointing out how dumb those things are by throwing Hawkeye in the lady's place is both funny and effective

    Ok, pregnant Batman avatar is gone.

    *grumble* If I could find a pregnant Robot Santa, that would totally be my avatar now... I can't believe Rule 34 has failed me here...

    A quote from Hickman that seems to imply the way the writing of event comics may work
    The Illuminati (NEW AVENGERS) are the exact same Illuminati that Bendis / Maleev introduced a few years ago. Beyond things that could not be casually explained (Cap having an Infinity Gem -- there's no getting around that), it's meant to be a direct continuation of that extremely conceited concept. I think I answered the Beast thing above somewhere, but he was the best suited, and available, plugin for Xavier when he got killed (which happened because I put Xavier back on the table in AvX 6, so it was kind of my fault -- I screwed myself, like an idiot).

    Also while I'm at it Hickman being super candid in an awesome way

    Continuing, "Best and most influential minds in the MU" is the kind of flowery, non-threatening, gibberish that we use to sell books instead of the honest "A group of brilliant and powerful men that took it upon themselves to control the direction of the Marvel Universe." The deception is intolerably shameful, but necessary, which is why I only write my solicits when I'm completely drunk. SERIOUSLY.

    Beast being in the illumanati means his primary motivation in All new is most likely a mislead which is annoying and just sort of kills that story's urgency.

    Well Im gonna take a wild guess here and say being on the avengers means Hank isn't dying anytime soon. So his last chance at salvation is more " I acted like an idiot and probably destroyed time sorry!"

    Which really makes him perfect for the illuminati

    If you thought he actually was in danger of dying

    Well, I don't even know what to tell you.

    ANXM has been awesome so far and certainly does not need his death to justify itself.

    Well its his entire motivation for doing what he
    does. He doesn't see any possibility of surviving. If he lives the entire monologue in the first issue might as well end with lol.
    Also there's three of him now I'm pretty sure they could off one and still have their beast Quota met.

    I enjoy the book immensely but that's gonna bug me for a while.

    Surely that's only if he knows at the time that he's gonna live? If he believes that he will die and then doesn't, that doesn't invalidate his prior motivation.

    I agree with Bale

    if you thought Beast, one of the most popular X-Men of all time, was just going to die

    then I have a bridge to sell you

    It's his body failing. Hanks been monitoring his condition for years especially since he mutated again. I'm less inclined to believe this is something he'd take at face value rather than check and recheck.

    He knows something is happening to him, the monologue from the first issue read to me like he didn't actually know what was wrong with him, just that he didn't think he would survive it.

    I mean yes if Hank wakes up feeling better next issue and that is that then I'll agree with you. But there are loads more ways other than death to give his sickness appropriate weight.

    From the New Avengers stuff we have seen it is clear he survives and mutates further. What with being bigger, more hunched over and having only 2 fingers and a thumb on each hand

    Just turn Beast into the hulking, dumber-by-the-day Beast, of Parker's Exiles.

    I dig Beast looking, well, bestial

    Cat form was too..weird. It didn't feel like a beast so much as a big furry teddy bear.

    The thing that makes Beast one of my favorites is that he is such kind, gentle, brilliant man stuck in a monstrous looking body. It's what makes him different from every other supergenius in the Marvel Universe.

    So having Beast look like a straight up beast is awesome.

    Yeah, I could get behind Beast being bigger and more hulking, to more radically contrast with his intelligence.

    Same here, that Exiles Beast design with Beasts' incredible intellect, wit and charisma is what you want.

    I'm reading through Hickman's Fantastic Four run so maybe it's explained there (in which case I don't need details) but have they explained how
    Black Bolt survived the War of Kings?

    Morrison had a throwaway line about Beast thinking he might be gay in his run

    never actually said he was gay and it could easily be read as Beast politely turning down the lady who was flirting with him

    and since he has been in a relationship with Abigail for a while it is pretty clear he ain't

    Morrison even confirms it was just to upset Trish in a later issue where Cyclops and Beast play detective. And then Beast tells Cyclops he's playing with fire with his talks with Emma.

    Trish Tilby, now there's a character who never went anywhere. Opal was cool, Archangel's cop girlfirend was cool, Tilby? nah.
