Beast steps into the limelight for a cool story with a cool ending. Shame it's basically just another story where an Avenger is attacked (is that all they do? Get attacked by villains). 8/10

  Spotlight time on the Beast was nice and I liked his quick rendition of Eleanor Rigby, too bad we couldn't of seen more.

  I wish that had been better, but Gerber messed up a solid introspective story with a stupid villain and an absurd conspiracy.

  This is an excellent Gerber fill in story. Fantastic art by Infantino as well.

  Interesting filler... The villain is a poor man's Two-Face, yet I enjoyed a Beast tale.

  This was a good issue.. but did the main villain just leave out a door, and thats all we seen of him? Beast falls on his butt and snaps out of it?

  This was awesome. I liked the idea that there's a thin line between hero and villain, and with the right external push, anybody can be either. The fact that this story doesn't end in a neat little bow was a nice touch.
