Apocalypse Looks Way More Like the Comics' Version in Unused Concept Art


via Comic Book Resources

New concept art has surfaced for an early version of "X-Men: Apocalypse's" titular villain, revealing a more comics-accurate look for the mutant that was inevitably scrapped for the final version of the film.

Apocalypse's look sparked a lot of discussion upon its reveal, with some suggesting -- from the initial photos -- that he resembled a "Power Rangers" or "Big Bad Beetleborgs" villain. By the time the film came out, Apocalypse look appeared more toned down (and less purple), but it definitely took a departure from the comics.
