Not content with creepy teacher/student relationships and time travel, All New X-Men will also explore drug use.
We're all trying to find our ways of coping with the clusterfuck that is AvX. Jude is currently starting multiple petitions to have Joss Whedon kill it during Avengers 2, RU has locked himself in his comic room with a copy of the Cyclops miniseries, and I am treating it like my three bastard children, that is refusing to acknowledge it exists. Beast, the other clawed Uncle Tom mutant who pushed one of his oldest friends to villainy by being a certifiable dickweed and a hypocrite at that, seems to have found his own way of coping with AvX.
In this new preview, it appears that Beast, who's no longer a cat, is now doing drugs, presumably to erase the pain of living through the awfulness of AvX. Not only is he shooting up dope, he's also wearing a suicide vest full of explosives, presumably to blow up the comic before too many people read it.
While we have no context for this page, Beast will probably blame his addiction on Cyclops, and all the X-Men will agree after Wolverine silently threatens them with his claws and/or evisceration in the public's eye during the upcoming WOLVERINE STABS UNLIKABLE HEROES event (coming summer 2013)
The Outhouse is unsure of which drug Beast is using in the preview, but the delivery system looks like the one used for Nuke, the drug featured in Robocop 2, which is said to have properties similar to crack or crystal meth. In any case, The Outhouse hopes that Beast is able to get himself into a treatment program and recieve help before his life spirals out of control and he finds himself writing a DC event comic.
