What should Beast look like? Should he be more cat-like, as he is in the current run of Marvel NOW!’s “All-New X-Men“? Or should he be more sasquatch-y and ape-like, as he was in George Perez’s iconic run on on Marvel’s mutants? This is a debate that’s ended many friendships, torn marriages apart, caused parents to disown children and – as you can see in our exclusive behind-the-scenes video – led to a heated debate between “All-New X-Men” writer Brian Michael Bendis and “X-Men” editor Nick Lowe during a recent Marvel retreat. But alas, the creative folks behind the new X-book came to an agreement – with the help of mediator Matt Fraction – and we now have an all-new Beast for an All-New X-Men as part of the all-new Marvel. And you can see it here first only on MTV Geek!
