BEAUTY AND THE BEAST #1 by Mike Norton



Mike says: I like the character of Wonder Man a lot. I really dug the hollywood stuntman era from when I was growing up in the 80's. I also like the Crosby and Hope type pairing that Marvel would do with him and Beast every so often. Why were they buddies? I don't know, but it was cool. I was talking over an idea with Tim Seeley at one point about a new Wonder Man/ Beast team up, but "BLOCKBUSTER SALES HIT" just wasn't written all over it. Besides Wonder Man is a bad guy now and Beast is a kitty cat, right? Here's a look at what could have been. Colors by Allen Passalaqua and lettering by Crank!

  1. Awesome, great idea, loving the new direction of the site too, 'What If's...?' were always my favorite growing up.

  2. I would read the hell out of this, both as a big Norton fan and a big Beast fan. This is phenomenal.

  4. I love this whole idea! Simon and Hank were great characters back then and would make a fun "odd couple".

    Would read? Judging by the cover, this is definitely a book I would get behind.

  5. The buddy comedy is a sorely underused sub-genre of superhero comics

  6. That is just tremendous! Marvel should do it as a From the (Pretend) Marvel Vault special
