The best Beast?

I can't decide what version of Hank I like best, as a big blue gorilla, he seemed more down to earth somehow, but I think he's stronger as a blue "cat-man" or at least faster and more agile, so is he better off staying as an ape or a feline? (And I'm sorry if he's already turnned back! I'm REALLY out of the loop!)

I prefer the 'ape'-like version as drawn by George Perez or John Byrne.

I prefer the classic ape version but I always wanted him to be stronger, faster and more animalistic as far as fighting. Always though he should have been a good version of Sabertooth. Both are ok but I prefer the old look.

Monkey Beast. But I wish he didn't job. :( Cap being able to ace his obstacle course still upsets me.

His classic ape version. I don't care much for his feline version.

@Joygirl: You wish he didn't "job" what does that mean?

@infonation: Making other characters look good by sucking more than your stats suggest that you should. For example, Beast is immensely agile, rivalling Spider-Man. He has an entire obstacle course built just for him to test his skill. Captain America, who is peak human (not superhuman, like Beast), beat Beast's time record on his own obstacle course.

@The_Peter_Cosmic: well...there are more chances for me to be evolved from a cat than a monkey,but still, why are we talking about human evolution now?

@Roguegirl24: I was joking about a cat-like physique being more realistic than an ape-like physique. You know since humans and apes share a common ancestry and, you know, have hands and feet instead of paws etc...

@The_Peter_Cosmic: Yeah, but it's easier for me build in my mind the image of a big blue cat man, than a big blue ape (Beast , doesn't look quite like a monkey you know? )

So, human form isn't an option? I think I've only really liked cat-Beast in recent books (most recently, All New X-men). I didn't like his debut appearance as a feline very much. Over all, ape-Beast is probably my favorite.
