Ok so most superheroes from comics more often than not these days are defined by how they look in the movies… But when you get down to it, even in comic form there are some heroes that just literally look different then how they did when they first came to life, and so with that said, I thought that I would talk about a few of them.

So I doubt anyone here would not recognize these days, ‘The X-Men’… I mean considering the fact that their most recent movie was released a few months ago! But did you know that even their latest comic versions of the characters barely resemble the team in X-Men #1? That’s right, take a look!

This is the closest character from the, 'X-Men' to resemble his comic book character!

And they aren’t the only ones! I mean we all know how Iron Man looked in the movies when he first started out… The truth is though, is that like the movies, Iron Man went through many transformations!

The more incarnations that the movie and the comic go through, the more Iron Man in the movie and Iron Man in the comic begin to look the same!

And finally there is, ‘Batman’… Did you know that the Dark Knight that we have always known and loved was not always so dark? That’s right folks! As a matter of fact, the, ‘Dark’ Knight was not always clothed in black….  At all! As a matter of fact, his suite was almost completely white in the first several comics he was in!

Batman before he became, 'The Dark Knight'!

Anyway, that is just a few of the examples that I thought that I would mention here…
