With the current crazy world by the characters of comic books, film studios were not slow to take advantage to make new films of superheroes each year. Marvel and DC even launched several programs of television, to keep alive the interest of the public while waiting for the next big movie based on the comics.

But very often, the fans feel a bit disappointed with the appearance of heroes and villains when they are not faithful to the comic. made a list of characters and their changes to show you how they look really.


Starlord, aka Peter Quill, is really different in the movies in its look and in terms of the original story. A police square chin, blond and thinner than Chris Pratt. Peter was the first “guardian” before the team meet.


Blonde hair and short, orange scales all over his torso and a green… what about spandex?. This is how we get to know Aquaman in the comics. And although no one is opposed to seeing Jason Momoa half naked and tattooed, you are certainly not fish scales!


It is assumed that the main female character of “Preacher”, is a small, fierce and toned blonde. However, the role was to Ruth Negga, quite the opposite in appearance, besides that she is dressed in a way less sexy. But we must admit that gave a new depth to the character.


In the comics, Rogue (or Titania) is a middle-aged woman with a white stripe and a courageous attitude toward life. Wearing the iconic uniform of yellow and green, she is one of the main characters in X-Men. In the movies, however, not only has changed its appearance, but also his powers and his mentality in general.


Much more dress in the movies than in the books cartoon, Beast (or Beast) made changes to its stature, appearance, and powers, leaving the original story full of disturbances.

Jessica Jones

When Jessica Jones first came to test his powers, appeared Jewel, a girl with red hair, light and bubbly that it aspired to save the world when she was captured by Killgrave. This fact is mentioned vaguely in the program television and Jewel had several minutes of screen time. Despite the fact that there was a tribute to his dress, Jessica Jones in the television is an obscure character, usually dressed in t-shirts and black jeans.


Yes, it took several generations of movies about Superman to put the red undies under the suit. DC also changed the color scheme complete the outfit and made it more like a scale-looking leathery.


The appearance of the character original was a homage to Robin Hood, with its bright green color and its hood. For the television program, however, the creators went beyond the character, of putting a armor on the suit, which creates a dull green color. They also added padding to the shoulders and almost removed the mask.


The leather outfit is bright red it is a basic element of the character of Daredevil. However the creators of the television program decided to put the watcher in a simple black cloth with a mask to show how the character had become the superhero we all know and love.

Man Purple

The villain of skin purple and gray hair, Killgrave, was changed to blend in with the crowd at the series of Jessica Jones. However, the creators decided to put it in a suit of purple to highlight your character in the original comic.


The Kingpin not only was he a bald guy huge: he was a man that “he was always in to fashion” with its eye-catching white suit and colorful scarf at the neck. Unfortunately, this image was shattered with a version very domesticated of the villain played by Vincent D’onofrio. At least the personality is still great.

The owl

The most dramatic changes in the appearance were made for the character of “The Owl” or owl. In the comics, he is very similar to Wolverine, wearing the same hairstyle only in bright orange color and a coat long green. In the television program, however, this character is more a business man than a villain of comics.

Witch Scarlet

In the books, Scarlet Witch is older, more mature, and usually appears with a suit of extremely revealing, a cape and a headdress that helps to control their powers. In the movies, however, the woman mutant is more cover, usually dressed with clothes of every day.


The suit in blue or green with flashes of silver in the chest is the unifome usual Quicksilver in the comics. However, for the films was changed by a gray shirt blue with more texture and less spandex. Also note the appearance of a Quicksilver largest and young.


This alien red skin is known in the comics by having a green dress and a yellow layer. However, for movies it became more of a creature that supports the technology with a look armoured, and a layer of beige. They also added a metallic jewelry that was not in the books of original cartoons.
