One of my favorite Marvel characters. I think he's deserving of a good redesign. The redesigns he always gets seem to always go extreme and loose the character.
I just wanted to add some pop to his usual monotone red costume so I knew I had to add lines, I just needed a concept. A pitchfork fits the visual his costume evokes. That is a downward pointing pitchfork on his torso and arms. I then wanted to do something else with his cowl. I started thinking about him being blind and not needing eye holes. Some type of detailing similar to that of the Spider-Man 2099 mask that does not really have eyes but only outlines that there could be, would be perfect. I just hoped it would work on a cowl. So the horns were worked into the design and an added bonus was that it worked itself into another downward pointing pitchfork motif.
