Guardians of the Galaxy brought a relatively little-known team from the galactic corner of Marvel Comics to big-screen glory, but one of its members almost looked very different.

Some early concept art from artist Andy Park has been released featuring the early designs considered for Star-Lord. Instead of the straight-up duster jacket and mask, there was some battle armor in reference to Star-Lord’s comic book look, plus a helmet that looks like it was pulled straight from the page. Park definitely looked to be drawing inspiration from Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning's seminal run on the comic, which largely inspired the film.

Check out the art below and let us know what you think.
