Must See Episodes


Personality-wise, Hank is a very friendly and warm-hearted man when he isn't affected by beast's anger. He was also very smart, which was implied; when he was shown to understand Egyptian Hieroglyphics.

Hank also has a genius intellect and is also sometimes refined. Although he does like to have fun - especially with snowball fights.

Physical appearance

In Hank's beast form, he has long shaggy hair, relatively long arms and opposable thumbs on his feet, much like a giant gorilla.

Powers and Abilities


Originally, Hank had a more human disposition, but an adverse reaction to a serum he developed to suppress his mutation caused his mutation to change, giving him full-bodied, blue fur and an ape-like physiology. Hank's mutant physiology grants him superhuman strength (he was seen bending a steel girder in the episode Day of Reckoning II) speed (by running on all fours) stamina, reflexes, balance, endurance and agility, as well as large paws with opposable thumbs; instead of feet which he can use to grasp objects or climb almost any surface and terrain with superhuman dexterity.
