Possibly one of the most frightening and impressive monsters to ever appear in Marvel comics, The Demon Bear was created by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz for the most well-known and admired arc of New Mutants – fittingly, The Demon Bear Saga.
Hunting Dani Moonstar, the bear has appeared a few times since the storyline where he originated – but never to the same impact. He’s a character who shouldn’t ever return, in fact. His storyline was told, Moonstar grew from it, and it remains with her to this day. That’s the legacy of the creature. Let’s leave it there.
