The critter pestering Dani Moonstar during those early New Mutants was
the Demon Bear, and was quite separate from the Great Beasts who
seemed to be specifically enemies of the native gods of northern Canada.
The Snowbird-fighting-the-Great-Beast-of-blizzards story with all white
panels because it was in a snowstrom was quite clever compared to some
of the stories that took place during Assistant Editors Month.
