  1. Beak has a total of six children, three named, and three unidentified. Tito has retained his mutation, but the others are all human after M-Day. The other named children are another son called Axel and a daughter named Kara.

  2. Oh, and Beak wasn’t actually created by Frank Quitely. He was created by Grant Morrison and Ethan Van Sciver.

  3. Not sure exactly where it was revealed initially, but it is in Angel Salvadore’s Official Marvel Handbook bio. Under the bibliography, it has these listed for “Significant Issues”

    First kissed Beak (New X-Men #131, 2002); revealed pregnancy to Beak (New X-Men #138, 2003); children hatched (New X-Men #141, 2003); Beak became unhinged from time (Exiles #48, 2004); reality warped, lived as fashion model, possessed by Proteus, reunited with Beak, became human after “M-Day” (Exiles #69-71, 2005)

    Not sure if it was in one of those issues or not, but they are pretty good at at least putting online corrections if there are any mistakes in the handbooks. I’m thinking they are correct.

  4. Thanks for the pointer, James — Tito, Axel and Kara were all named in the same panel of Exiles #71.

    (But, wait, how do we know that Tito was the one who retained his mutation?)

    -Jeph!

  5. Sigh. Note to self: read entire scene before commenting. Beak refers to the still-mutated child AS TITO on the VERY NEXT PAGE from the panel I was looking at two minutes ago.

    Hey, Corey, how ’bout making the comments editable, so I can quit embarrassing myself?

    Bah.

    -Jeph!

  6. But what fun would that be?

    Unfortunately, I can’t change whether the comments can be editable or not. I’ll look into it, though. Maybe there’s something I didn’t see.

  7. Corey, just a little extra for you, here’s the titles of each ssue (where applicable). I don’t have all of his New X-Men appearances, so I’ll have to start with New X-Men (volume 1, if we need to distinguish it from academy X that way…) #146

    New X -Men #146 – “Planet X” part I of V
    New X-Men #147 – “Planet X “part II of V
    New X-Men #148 – “Planet X” Part III of V
    New X-Men #149 – “Planet X” part IV of V
    New X-Men #150 – “Planet X: Conclusion”
    Exiles #46 – “Earn your wings” part I of III
    Exiles #47 – “Earn your wings” part II of III
    Exiles #48 – “Earn your wings” part III of III
    Exiles #49 – “Mission Impossible”
    Exiles #50 – “The big M” part I of II
    Exiles #51 – “The big M part II of II
    Exiles #52 – “Living Planet” part I of II
    Exiles #53 – “Living Planet” part II of II
    Exiles #54 – “Rube Goldberg”
    Exiles #55 – “Bump in the night” part I of III
    Exiles #56 – “Bump in the night” part II of III
    Exiles #57 – “Bump in the night” part III of III
    Exiles #58 – “Taking on Tanaraq”
    Exiles #59 – “A tooth for a tooth”
    Exiles #62 – Timebreakers” part I of IV
    Exiles #63 – “Timebreakers” Part II of IV
    Exiles #64 – “Timebreakers” part III of IV
    Exiles #65 – “Timebreakers” part IV of IV
    Exiles #66 – “Destrpy all monsters” part I of III
    Exiles #67 – “Destroy all monsters” part II of III
    Exiles #68 – “Destroy all monsters” part III of III
    Exiles #69 – “World Tour: House of M” part I of III
    Exiles #70 – “World tour: House of M” part II of III
    Exiles #71 – “World Tour: House of M” part III of III
    Exiles #72 – “World Tour: New Universe” part I of III

    When Jeph says Axel and Kara were named in Exiles #71 he meant #72 I think (my mistake if not).

    “Geration M” #4 was untitled, but hopefully that information will all proof useful!

  8. Nope, I meant #71. THAT bit I checked — Beak isn’t in #72. His final Exiles appearance was the end of the “House of M” crossover, at which point he gets left behind on Earth-616.

    -Jeph!

    -Jeph!
