UPDATE: COMICS: Beast's New Look Revealed In ALL-NEW X-MEN

We have already seen a panel from All-New X-Men #6 which gave us a distant glimpse of a very different looking Beast, but now we have another scan from issue #5 which gives us a proper look at the brand new, more simian looking, Hank McCoy.

UPDATE: Thanks to MTV Geek we have more hi-quality images, as well as some concept art..





As you can see, he actually doesn't look quite as different as that other glimpse suggested. Definitely more ape-like than cat-like, but then that is a bit more in keeping with the original look of the character anyway. What do you guys think? Be sure to pick up the issue today and see more of this new Beast, and if you fancy a look at new versions of Black Orchid from DC's Justice League Dark and Venom from Ultimate Spider-Man, click the link back to Bleeding Cool below.

hm.. reminds me of the classic but with a "shaven" head..
Still better than the cat-like, but yet i don't really like.. Probably it's just those shadows on his face..

So who's the dude feeling up his hairy right tit?
AC1 - 1/2/2013, 6:27 AM
I like this version, but why is young Beast feeling his older self's chest?
sameoldthing - 1/2/2013, 6:28 AM
Ape-like is better..cat look was never that appealing.

I love cat-beast, especially the way he was drawn in this series in the early issues. I hate this look
Temple - 1/2/2013, 6:35 AM
Seen it days ago, I think people are really pirating this comic O.o, but anyways I like this version of beast alot. Much better than the other two versions.

@teabag Hahahaha!

I liked cat beast but too many artist variations. He ranged from the cowardly lion to a kitty. Also a giant cat really didn't deserve the name beast when there were plenty of cat people walking around.

i've always loved the cat look.this isn't bad,its gonna take some getting use to though.
Dax - 1/2/2013, 6:52 AM
It's not bad, and I do like it, but I hate his size. He looks on par with the Hulk in musculature. Which is not supposed to be the case. Beast is strong, but he's also supposed to be agile. This look doesn't convey that.
RorMachine - 1/2/2013, 6:52 AM
Everyone says they prefer the 90s look but I didn't think he looked beastly enough. I mean he was basically a bulkier Nightcrawler with a Wolverine haircut. So I was glad when they made him more Cat-like..kinda like The Beast from Beauty and The Beast. But they went a bit overboard with it over the years admittedly. Thsi looks...ok. Gonna have to see more images before making my mind up.

The cat look always looked lame too me, one of the many reasons I stopped buying any X-Men comics (yes, seriously). I really wish they would just let him go back to his human form (lesson learned), and keep him that way. This new look is way better though.
longbowhunter - 1/2/2013, 7:05 AM
I always liked the cat look. Totally unpractical for a scientist to have paws but I liked it. This makes more sense. Before the blue fur Hank was just an ape-ish mutant.
JatevinM - 1/2/2013, 7:06 AM
WTF is this
BruceWayneNewton - 1/2/2013, 7:10 AM
Ehhh I don't mind it. The size of the muscles are a bit much but i like the face
DaveT - 1/2/2013, 7:15 AM
I thought the Cat look was really kinda cool and unexpected. This is kinda dull. Maybe they shoulda gone dog...in fact...they should have gone wiener dog!
duncboy - 1/2/2013, 7:17 AM
I actually prefer this look over the other 2 mutations. The original Hank McCoy just had large hands/feet and a bulky build, then he mutated multiple times over the decades until this recent change. He's now known just as much for his mutations as he is his iconic and ironic combination of physical attributes and intellect. I like it.

And, as I wrote this I realized that this is in some ways exactly what Marvel is trying to do with Superior Spider-Man. I still hate the idea of SSM, but I just talked myself into reading it. If I didn't I'd be hypocritical!
BigDamnHero - 1/2/2013, 7:34 AM
I really liked the cat look. Sad to see it go.
GUNSMITH - 1/2/2013, 7:43 AM
HIS NOSEY IS ROUND AND DARK
bazinga85 - 1/2/2013, 7:51 AM
It's okay, I guess. At least he didn't switch bodies with doc ock.
KalebAmos - 1/2/2013, 8:01 AM
It's an okay look, even if he seems a bit roided out. Give him a protein shake and a workout towel and he'll look like a happy Hank to me.
superotherside - 1/2/2013, 8:02 AM
I'm going to have to see more images to make my mind up.
ATrueHero1987 - 1/2/2013, 8:07 AM
^^^I concur
A7 - 1/2/2013, 8:09 AM
Panthro from Thundercats ?
jimoakley666 - 1/2/2013, 8:13 AM
I like it. I never mind a new looks for Beast. He never stays the same. I liked (Quitely's version of) the cat look but this is a cool next step. And the cropped hair is cool.

I see SteveRogersSon shoe-horned another trollish Morrison comment again.
CherryBomb - 1/2/2013, 8:16 AM
Looks familiar ...
Hellsboy - 1/2/2013, 8:20 AM
More yeti like than anything else but it's an ok design
osideous - 1/2/2013, 8:22 AM
it also appears his big toe is opposable...
TheGreatone0207 - 1/2/2013, 8:27 AM
I'm not liking this look either. Not sure why they keep continuing to change his look.
nld3 - 1/2/2013, 8:32 AM
All you kitty cat lovers. Its not beauty & the beast. Give me the original Beast any day.
mctrinket - 1/2/2013, 8:37 AM
I had just gotten used to the catlike version...
jimpinto24 - 1/2/2013, 8:42 AM
WTF???
MutantEquality - 1/2/2013, 8:52 AM
I'm good with it. Original Beast looks like he likes the new pecs. It's Beast!
xizorkatarn - 1/2/2013, 8:56 AM
Marvel needs to stop fixing what ain't broke and focus on what still is. This is just stupid.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 1/2/2013, 9:05 AM
I like it. I just want them to find something that sticks. Never liked the pointy Wolverine/Wolfsbane/Feral/Vixen/Keith Flint from Prodigy hair, so the kitty look was alright with me, but this seems a better fit.
GoILL - 1/2/2013, 9:10 AM
Looks decent, not what I expected but decent.
Opt1mu5Pr1m4l - 1/2/2013, 9:12 AM
Looks pretty good. The cat look didn't really do it for me though.
Shadowmaster35 - 1/2/2013, 9:22 AM
I'm ok with it, it'll just take some getting use to like the cat appearance
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 1/2/2013, 9:30 AM
Meh. don't hate it, don't love it.
