Synopsis for "Yours Truly, the Beast"Edit

The essence of the strange powers with which nature has endowed me, can be found in my pedal and digital extremities! In other words, keep your eyes on my hands and feet!

— Beast

In this follow up story, the Beast gives us a narrative about his mutant powers. He explains that his large hands and feet, enhanced strength and agility allow him to perform all his feats. He can leap and bound out of trouble, and use his toes to help him scale walls. He also explains his unique fighting style and he is so skilled with his feet that he can write with his toes. He is so skilled he can use both his hands and feet to repair machinery.

Taking a moment to revert to his civilian guise, he tells the audience about his interest in the various academic interests that he has before being called into action. Hank quickly changes into his Beast costume, bounds across the roof tops of cars, climbs a nearby building and manages to hop aboard the X-Copter to join his comrades in another battle.
