Beast is great paired with Px, as his 6 AP blue gives you a ton of tiles(for those still using some 3*).
For DPD final node, try 3* Cyclops/Beast/PX. Fun team.
Beast really shone during the recent EotS. Teamed him up with Scarlet Witch and IM40 for his essentials. Three AoE abilities, 99% of the time you'll have a special blue tile to feed Animal Inside, and eternal AP providing you can constantly Recharge
Beast is part of one of my favorite PVP teams - 5/5/3 Kamala, 3/5/5 Gamora, and 5/5/3 Beast. The team gets underestimated a lot because Gamora and Beast aren't considered good, but this team has synergy out the wazoo.
Rainbow coverage, and two cheap powers mean that you have healing at will and decent damage and utility. Beast's green after he gets a special tile out is good and pretty underrated. This is also the one you want to use with this team, with KK accelerating him. The match might last long enough that you get the 12 black needed for Gamora's black, and in that case she tanks all her colors for max strike tiles. In all, these three have good offense, great sustain, and plenty of pestering power. I've champed all three of these chars, and don't regret it a bit.
This makes me wonder if it would be worth putting 20 CP into buying what will become my 13th Beast cover so I can champ him and pump him with the extra covers I have waiting.
I have Beast at 11 covers. I am not very interested in prioritizing him, however I also have 3 (!) extra covers in the cover queue (they expire in 11 days!) and I know there is a blue cover in DDQ to claim on 10 days which will land me at 12 covers.
