so here are a couple redesigns i did for fun. took some of the biggest, supposed to be epic badasses, and tried to take away some of the corniness. tried to atleast.

you guys may have seen these on Project Rooftop.

here are a little description on each.

Thanos – This was my attempt to take all the corniness from him. I always felt his costume kept him from being a huge cosmic threat that he should be. I also added the hood to tie him to Death, visually.

Kang – He is from the future. he should look like it, and have tech that looks impossible.

Ultron – So advanced that he is a Biomech — a living robot.

Baron Von Strucker – I tried to combine his WW2 costume with that of the Hydra tights. I wanted to redesign the Hydra logo and streamline it better to better implement as a design element for the costume.

Galactus – My basic idea is that he is sort of a void of power. Make him a more visual representation of the “abstract” concept. The hole in his chest is where he eats planets. Afterwards his body physically becomes whatever main element of that planet was. So if he eats a star, his body becomes fire.

But what does Galactus become if he eats a giant space cloud?

Your Galactus gives me some inspiration. I think going from the whole, 'man in a suit' thing makes a TON of sense.
