Beast is a Mutant Champion. Being a Mutant Champion, he has a Class Bonus against Skill Champions, but is weak to Tech Champions.


One of the world's experts on mutations and evolutionary human biology, Hank was born a mutant with unusually large hands and feet. Later in life, Hank took a hormonal extract that caused him to grow fangs, pointed ears and fur all over his body. He was now a Beast in body, as well as in name.

Strengths and Weaknesses


  • Because of their Physical Resistance and Armor Up of Crossbones and Black Panther, those Champions are really hard to defeat, but with Beast's Signature Ability and the Freestyle combat mode, he can bypass those defenses with the Bleed effects on his Critical Hits.
  • Beast is able to drastically reduce opponent's Power Gain while fighting with his Acrobatic combat form, making him one of the best options when going against Champions on Power Nodes in Quests and in PVP.


  • Beast does not handle Energy Damage very well, therefore any Champions that constantly deal Energy-based attacks (such as Doctor Strange or Magneto) have an advantage against him.

Recommended Masteries

  • Recovery: With Beast's Signature Ability, while in the Acrobatic mode, he is able to Regenerate Health when successfully doing a chain combo move, synergizing perfectly with Recovery.
  • Precision: Beast doing Bleed damage on Critical Hits, together with his Signature Ability and Precision, makes him one of the strongest Bleed dealers in the game.
  • Petrify and Pacify: By dealing Stuns on his Special Attacks, Beast is able to start a combo right away. Reducing the opponent's Power Gain and preventing the activation of enemy abilities synergizes really well with this ability.


A 2 star Beast was available in the 2 star X-Men crystal available during the March 2018 event.


  • The description for Beast's third Special Attack lacks a period at the end of the sentence.
