Strength Level

Beast can lift 10 tons.


  • Due to Beast's transformation into a cat-like being he has developed a carnivorous taste for flesh, which he is conflicted over.


  • His original furry transformation was an idea that originated with Roy Thomas, with input from Stan Lee, an effort to make the character more visibly striking. He also became more werewolf-like to capitalize on the success of Werewolf by Night.
  • Hank's religious affiliation is Episcopalian.
  • The Beast enjoys Twinkies. Evidence can be found in X-Men #73, where Beast's list of New Year's Resolutions revealed that one of his resolutions was to "Eat fewer Twinkies" (the other resolutions were to "read more 15th century texts" and "cure Legacy Virus", the latter the only one which it is evidenced that he did).
