Mr. Byrne,

Can I ask what you made of this character? I never thought much of the character itself and the two Secret Wars series were never favourites, but when he was used in the actual FF comic I thought he worked very well.

Didn't care much for the Beyonder. Didn't care much for the way they "undid" him, either.

Thankyou. I still enjoyed him in FF #288. Thought he worked well there.

I thought the Beyonder's face looked very Kirbyesque in his appearance in AF#28. Maybe because under that God-awful Jerry curl he was actually using a body and face that was a clone of Captain America.

Can anyone tell me how he was undone? I quit Secret Wars II after the 3rd issue, I think.

He ended up forsaking all his power and making a machine-thing to transform him into a human baby that I think someone subsequently killed. Then later, it was revealed he was a cosmic cube that became a life form.

I think. I could be wrong on my details since it's been 20 years since I read any of that stuff.

It happened in this issue, in a story titled "Secret Wars 3".    I don't remember the full details, but the  Beyonder was revealed to be a cosmic cube, as Brian mentions.

I believe the accident that created the Molecule Man also created the Beyonder??? and that what Molecule Man's power and the Beyonder were really two sides of the same cosmic cube. Which I guess Molecule man's accident had split in two or something.

So they agreed to come together and form the cube they were meant to be.  Of course Doom tries to interfere, and the Thing tried to wish for Universal peace, too late, which surprised Ms. Marvel (She-Thing), who thought he'd wish for them to be back to normal.

Anyway, I believe the Molecule Man showed up later on, so not sure what happened.

But OI think the Beyonder's cube formed into a female living cube that went exploring the universe.  I think.

Oh Yeah.  That girl living cube then showed up in Starlin's Thanos series.

that has to be the most repugnant Thing EVER. Who is responsible for the design of that mutation?

He got mutated.  Sometimes it is called Pineapple Thing. I kind of liked it.  I think it happened in the second issue I read. He was stronger than regular old Thing, and of course, as even more hideous than before, it caused some further angst. It lasted about 2 years.

First appearance

Him and Ms. Marvel (She-Thing)

 New version v. new version. he actually beat the Hulk here for, supposedly, the first time.
