Beast having a mental breakdown might explain why he fetched the O5 into the future.

I'll take that headcanon and run with it. Sort of the way Tony's having an extended PTSD breakdown in the MCU and no one seems to acknowledge it.

I thought he was just an asshole.

I'm of mixed opinions when it comes to Doop. In the right hands, he's a fascinatingly strange part of the mythos. In the wrong, he's annoying and ridiculous.
I think his role in this series really straddled that line... but given the general level of absurdity, it worked more often than not. Especially here, where we see him as the unseen protector/proactive guardian, handling the weirder possible threats.

Also, the ongoing joke that Doop is essentially omnisexually attractive and regularly pleasures people of all sorts is just weird enough to work.

This art, though, is not always all that good to those it portrays, and that's even taking into account the Allreds' unique style.

Yeah, I absolutely do not get, on any level, the fascination with Doop. Granted, I never read any of of the X-Force/X-Statix stuff he came from (read the first issue and noped my way out of there so hard it wasn't even funny), but I just... don't get it.

Which is fine. Not everything has to be for everyone. But I always feel like I'm not even getting what the point/joke/whatever is supposed to even be here.

I view the joke as, "What if a green blob alien that doesn't speak any comprehensible language had tons of offscreen Wolverine-type adventures and even reputation?"

yeah, I've never really got the joke either.

maybe it's a parody of writer-pet characters? Canon Sues?
