A big thing in X-men comics was when Beast left Utopia after finding out about X-force, now obviously there were other things that factored into his departure from Utopia. For one Scott left him to be tortured by Dark Beast and Norman Osborn in order to keep Utopia a secret. So Beast and Cyclops have had their differences. X-force was simply the last straw. Beast left Utopia and went off to do his own thing.
Then Wolverine and Cyclops went their separate ways in Schism, Wolverine called Beast up and told him that he left Scott and is starting his own X-men. Beast joined up and supported him and helped him created the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning. The big problem is that after Scott disbanded X-force, Wolverine created a new X-force consisting of Psylocke, Fantomex, Deadpool, and Archangel. They killed a child, an old man, and a bunch of other people. Then Archangel went crazy and tried to destroy the entire world.
Wolverine recently just told Beast and Kitty Pryde that he's leader of X-Force and that X-force will continue to be active. They will "make sure none of the bad guys show up on their school's doorstep" he also uses the term, "On-call campus police." While Beast didn't seem to be happy with it, he still remains to be a part of Wolverine's side and continues to teach at the school.
So here's the big question.....Is Beast a Hypocrite?
Is it fair of him to criticize and leave Scott for creating X-force, but stay with Wolverine who created his own team of killers?
Well one of the main differences between how Cyclops dealt with X-force and how Wolverine dealt with X-force was Scott tried to keep it as secret as possible. He only let people know about it if they found out about it for themselves. Wolverine however is being a lot more upfront with it. Wolverine has practically just stated that there is going to be "No secrets" between him and Beast. Although if X-force is going to be kept secret from the students still remains to be seen. Although judging by the preview for Wolverine and the X-men #4 we might find out about that or not.
I know that if I was dating someone for a long time I'd rather have my partner come up to me and say "Yes I cheat on you, I'm sorry", then find out they were cheating on me on my own. This situation is kinda like that. Although there is one thing wrong with that analogy, when someone cheats on someone and admits to it you expect they're telling you because they learned from their mistakes and want to make amends. Wolverine isn't telling Beast he's sorry and that he's ending X-force, he's telling him "I'm not keeping any secrets from you, but I'm still going to go out and kill people." So it's kinda like being in a "Yes I cheated on you, and I'm still going to do it" relationship, in which case any person would say "Then I'm done." Beast isn't doing that.....so does that still make him a hypocrite?
What do you guys think, is Beast a Hypocrite or do you think he's justified for criticizing Scott and not Wolverine.
