Traitor! The Beast Sells Out in Astonishing X-Men #16

The Beast has revealed his true colors once again in a preview of next week's Astonishing X-Men #16. Known for turning on his own species in the past, Beast is seen in this preview offering to work for the Office of National Emergency, a corrupt government agency that has kidnapped him and his fellow X-Men, right after they physically assaulted his teammate, Dazzler.

It's unclear whether Beast is playing the evil General Callahan, or whether he's simply being true to his character, like when he sided against Cyclops, his childhood friend. Then again, Beast selling out may simply be a projection of writer Matty Rosenberg, a former indie darling, becoming a hotshot Marvel Exclusive writer.

Astonishing X-Men #16 hits stores on Wednesday.

And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
