Quote1 No... but it's only a matter of time till we locate them... capture them... and destroy them all. This I swear to you, my faithful friends: Before the week is out, all resistance on this wretched planet will be crushed - a war will explode between America and her most cherished allies and in the ashes that result, only we will survive - and the Man-Beast will rule over all! Quote2
Man-Beast[src]

History

Origin[]

The Man-Beast is a genetically modified wolf created by the High Evolutionary to gain human-like form and intelligence. Unlike the Evolutionary's previous New Men, he was created using a new isotope which granted him a heightened physicality and enhanced mental capabilities, which also meant greater ambition.[3] Leading a revolt and ousting his own master from his own home, the Man-Beast sought to raise an animal army that could take over the world, but was ultimately stopped by Thor.[4]

Man-Beast as the Hate Monger (unmasked)

After the Evolutionary departed for space, the Man-Beast once again attempted to usurp his citadel for his own fiendish ends,[5] and began brainwashing the few New Men who remained on Earth before he was defeated by Wolverine and Kitty Pryde.[6] Later, he would follow his creator into space and attempt to wrest control of his new society on Counter-Earth, only to be thwarted by Adam Warlock and partially devolved for his trouble.[7]

He would later emerge in the world of man under the guise of the Hate-Monger, and used a specially-designed psionic device to induce hatred in as part of his scheme to have humanity destroy itself while he repopulated the world with his fellow New Men.[8] This plan was too thwarted, this time by Spider-Man, leaving the Man-Beast to become caught in the explosion of his own device and presumed dead.[9]

The Siege of Wundagore[]

Man-Beast as Omega

When the Evolutionary eventually returned to Earth, he created a new generation of his royal guard, the Knights of Wundagore, which was to include a new lupine member named Sir Wulf. Fearful that his servants would not trust another wolf after the traitorous action of the Man-Beast, he clad him entirely in armor and dubbed him "Lord Anon."[10] Unknown to anyone, however, Sir Wulf was secretly killed and replaced by the Man-Beast himself, who used this position to infiltrate the team. Allying himself with the mutant Exodus, he tried once again to claim his creator's home for his own, only for him and his allies to be defeated by the Knights and the Heroes for Hire. After losing the battle, he was completely de-evolved into a real wolf by the Evolutionary, with all memories of his previous life erased.[11]
