You may have already seen Jerad S. Marantz's early work on Green Lantern (here he created a very bulbous Philip Seymour Hoffman as Hector Hammond). Now take a look at some of his early character concept art for X-Men: First Class. Oh Azazel!

Marantz released this work on his Facebook page with this quickie statement:

I always have fun on these comic book movies. I was on the film for a short time but was able to contribute. I just saw the movie today and really liked it. Here are a few designs I did.

We really love his Azazel. It probably would have been a much different movie if the red character was channeling this look, but still it's pretty great! Plus we love Emma Frost's icy shoulder pads!
