All New X-Men # 8 Spoilers – 05 Beast and Doctor Strange Team-up
Here’s a quick spoiler post for All New X-Men # 8 by Dennis Hopeless and Paco Diaz featuring a team-up between O5 Hank McCoy and Doctor Strange.
So in this issue, it’s all about Beast aka Hank McCoy, the younger one anyway. In the past issues he realizes that his All New X-Men team gets beaten up continuously by the likes of characters like the Blob and even Toad. Toad even managed to torture Scott Summers aka Cyclops before the team rescued him.
Now Hank is dealing with the ramifications…
At around the same time, in another part of the country, Doctor Strange is seen saving a nearby village.
Which is where Hank connects with him; to ask a few questions and mainly to find a way back to their original timeline through magic.
And here’s the money shot, a creative look at the
Beast isn’t so used to seeing the world like that, and mostly because he’s more attuned to Science rather than Magic, so he blacks out. When he awakes, its been some time and Strange is just chillin, taking a break from fighting shadow goblins.
As they plan things out, Doctor Strange gets attack by a shadow snake creature, gets almost eaten alive if not for the last minute save of Beast. He then analyzes the structure and form of the creature he just killed and applies science to it.
They find a common ground, Doctor Strange defeats the invading shadow goblins “at great personal cost” and they part ways…
I have a feeling this will come in handy when they find a way to get back to their proper timeline. Also love the Paco Diaz art for this issue. You can really see all the small details on both Beast and Doctor Strange’s costume. For that this deserves a pick-up at my local comic store.
