Hank McCoy was born with giant hands and feet as a result of the mutant gene, but kept it a secret by studying many doctorates, and excelling at sports. Once it was revealed he was a mutant, Hank was shunned by everyone - including his friends and family. Eventually he was recruited by Professor Xavier and joined the X-Men as one of its founding members codenamed Beast.
He briefly left the team to study a way to rid himself of the mutagen gene, but unfortunately while testing it, it did the opposite of what it was meant to do. This caused him to become a blue-furred beast, and decided to fight again with the X-Men.
