15 Marvel And DC Heroes Who Look Far Different From The Original Comic Characters

Most characters from Marvel and DC movies and series are created based on the ones we know and love from the original comic books. Sometimes their characteristics are perfectly maintained, but sometimes, the creators decide to change things so these superheroes would fit the taste of the audience or the atmosphere of the films better. Their intentions sound nice, but every now and then they upset and disappoint loyal fans of the comics.
In this post, we have piled up 15 characters who were remarkably changed when they showed up on the screen. Do you like these transformations, would you rather keep the old ones? Just take a look at them, and don't forget to share your opinion with us!

#1. Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter)

Unlike the pink-haired, lively Jewel we saw in the comics, Jessica Jones on the series is a kind of dark character who prefers black clothes.

#2. Arrow (Stephen Amell)

Billionaire Oliver Queen aka Green Arrow in the comics is like an homage to Robin Hood, while his on-screen version is much more serious with darker costumes that contain shoulder pads and arrows on his back.

#3. Daredevil (Charlie Cox)

Before growing into our beloved vigilante, Matt Murdock aka Daredevil used to wear only plain black clothes, which is absolutely nothing like his original comic version.

#4. Aquaman (Jason Momoa)

There's no denying that Jason Momoa did a great job as Aquaman, but he looks way too different from the short-haired blonde with orange scales we see in the comics.

#5. Beast (Nicholas Hoult)

The cinematic Beast has not only more clothes but also more powers than his original character.

#6. Kingpin (Vincent D'Onofrio)

It's no secret that the comic Kingpin cares a lot about fashion, but when he appears on the big screen, the infamous villain seems to be much tamer and simpler.

#7. Starlord (Chris Pratt)

Peter Quill aka Starlord in the comics is a skinny, blond cop who is kind of immature and impulsive. Both his appearance and his story are different from the famous guardian we know in the movies.

#8. Superman (Henry Cavill)

In this case, we're glad that red underwear is nowhere to be seen. Superman's suit in "Man of Steel" is also more leathery and mature.

#9. Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen)

Wanda Maximoff in the comics is older and also bolder when it comes to revealing costumes.

#10. Tulip O'Hare (Ruth Negga)

Ruth Negga is an amazing actress and her performance as the protagonist of "Preacher" was truly fantastic. However, her looks and vibe are nothing like the original one.

#11. The Owl (Bob Gunton)

The Owl in the comics looks a lot like Wolverine, while the one in the TV series looks just like... well, human.

#12. Kilgrave (David Tennant)

Just like Jessica Jones, villain Kilgrave in the TV show was also changed dramatically compared to the original comics.

#13. Rogue (Anna Paquin)

Rogue in the comics is a daring, fierce middle-aged woman who made her debut as a villain. In the movies, her iconic yellow-green uniform was replaced by a normal black suit, and her powers and mindset were changed a lot as well.

#14. Vision (Paul Bettany)

Like Rogue, Vision in the comics usually appears in green and yellow. However, in the TV show, the filmmakers have turned this alien into a tech-supporting character with a more armored look.

#15. Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson)

Pietro Maximoff in the comics is older with a totally different suit. He is also skinnier too.
