Blue Romance: Beauty and the Beast Week begins!

Hey, remember that time Dazzler and the Beast fell in love while on the run from anti-mutant hysteria and ended up joining an underground gladiatorial fight club in Hollywood that was controlled by the illegitimate son of Doctor Doom?

YOU WILL.


Beauty and the Beast week continues tomorrow!

Hmmm, Dazzler likes her men with hairy chests. And hairy backs. And hairy everything.

Dazzler's a freak.

Oh, man - you have no idea.

Oh man, I remember this! They had a torrid mini-series affair, and then it was never ever spoken of again.

It's probably Mephisto's fault.

OMG, and to think I had ALMOST succeeded in blocking this series from my memory...!

CURSE YOU, MAXO!!!!!!

Blue fur aside, Hank McCoy had a lot of charm, intelligence, and compassion. It was no surprise that people might find him attractive.

A major problem with the miniseries, though, was that Beast and Dazzler didn't have much chemistry. They didn't click as a couple.

I remember Dazzler's short-term relationship with Angel (back when they were fighting the Sisterhood of Evil Mutants). I was surprised they didn't stay together.

Sally: You mean that it was mentioned again, or that it happened in the first place? ;)

Sea: Bwa-haha!

James: I'm actually with you, James — Beast is one of my favorite characters. Part of the problem is that a lot of the qualities that make Hank an interesting character are totally missing from this clunky mini-series.

Yeah, the whole thing felt a little ... weird.
