Henry McCoy was born a mutant with gargantuan hands and feet. He initially rejected his mutancy, and concocted a serum hoping to cure himself, but it was unsuccessful and resulted in his skin turning into blue fur. Hank was dubbed "Beast" and joined the X-Men.
Hank's former colleague, Herbert Landon, continued Hank's work on a cure and founded the Brand Corporation. However, it turned out that Landon's real intention was to destroy all mutants. He had Beast kidnapped and told him that he was to be first victim of the serum, although Wolverine along with Spider-Man saved him. Landon accidentally came into contact with the serum and turned into a 30' mutate, but the X-Men and Spider-Man teamed up to stop him.
When the X-Men learned that the Mutant Control Agency had been supplying details of their registered mutants to the Sentinels, they decided to break into the Agency's headquarters to destroy the files. During this raid, Morph was apparently killed and Beast was arrested, although later released.
Beast also worked as a medical researcher in a New York hospital, where he fell in love with one of his patients, Carly. Carly's father hated the idea of her having a relationship with a mutant and demanded that it cease when she was ready for surgery. When The Friends Of Humanity kidnapped Carly after her operation, Wolverine infiltrated their ranks and Beast started a mad rampage, determined to save his love no matter the cost. After The X-Men rescued her, Beast told her that he couldn't see her any longer, as she was in constant danger around him. He told her he hoped he would be able to return to her when mutants and humans could live in peace together.
