Concept artist Wesley Burt has shared some of his designs for alternate Echo outfits, and they look significantly more comic-accurate than the costume Alaqua Cox wore in the Hawkeye series...

Maya Lopez, aka Echo, made her MCU debut in the Disney+ Hawkeye series as the "niece" of Wilson Fisk (Vincent D'Onofrio). Lopez shared several characteristics with her comic book counterpart, but didn't sport the signature hand-print facepaint or much in the way of an actual costume.

Now, concept artist Wesley Burt has shared some of his finalized designs for Echo's look, and while she's still missing the facepaint, these outfits (note the symbol) are quite a bit closer to how the antihero is depicted in the comics.

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

In the season finale of Hawkeye, Lopez guns down Fisk after coming to the realization that he was the one responsible for her father's death. The Kingpin almost certainly survived, however, and will likely return as the main antagonist of the planned Echo spinoff show.

When we do see Maya again, there's a good chance one of these designs (or something similar) will be utilized for her new costume.

@SuperBTS - same lol
GhostDog - 3/11/2022, 11:06 AM
And they went with the most boring costume

@BlackBeltJones - that seems to be a running theme with Marvel lol

People have been wondering where DD fits into the MCU and what we just saw is the beginning of the street level universe. Kingpin, Echo etc will all be a part of that with She-Hulk.
StSteven - 3/11/2022, 4:25 PM
@Goldboink - Exactly. I recall having posted a rather lengthy diatribe in another post a while ago ("What? You? StSteven? Lengthy posts?!?) where I was basically theorizing that due to the obvious expansive nature of The MCU (and expanding as we speak), it's only natural that whether intended or not (most likely intended) Marvel is starting to subtly migrate their characters over into various "subgenres" within The MCU, i.e. Earthbound, Cosmic, Supernatural, Street level, etc., with obvious crossovers, similar to how the comics are. And similar to the comics, they will borrow characters from one subgenre over to another when it fits the story they are trying to tell (which becomes easier as the GA becomes more familiar with the new and existing characters).

So I say all that to say that I totally agree that it's no accident that now that Marvel has all their Netflix shows back on D+ and they have all those characters back; DD and Kingpin are now in the MCU; they've introduced Echo, Clown, TSM, etc.; Spidey is now (presumably) going to be street-level, at least for the time being, etc., it seems like Marvel is building out that subgenre. Add to that Moon Knight, who will most likely be a street level/supernatural crossover character and it all just makes sense.

Either that or Feige is a raging alcoholic who has fits of rage where he throws chunks of different colored Play-Doh against a wall and when he sobers up he looks at it and says "Yeah, that makes perfect sense. Blade and the Black Knight in Eternals, and we'll throw them into Moon Knight with Banner which will introduce them to the Avengers. Just like we did with Shang-Chi. Brilliant! Now someone get me a frickin' Bloody Mary! I have work to do, damn it!".

@StSteven -
To date though the movies have leaned away from street level stuff and more into global and cosmic threats. I think D+ will lean more into the street level stuff but that remains to be seen. They can also take chances on D+ that they can't in the movies.

The comics always had the sub-genres and that will extend to the MCU as well.
StSteven - 3/11/2022, 7:15 PM
@Goldboink - Oh, agreed. It makes logical sense that when the MCU kicked off they were going to focus on the individual characters to bring us into the team up, which lead to the (Earthbound) global threat, and then once we opened up the cosmic side of the MCU it kept spreading outward and subdividing into logical subgenres, as was my point. I think it's starting to get to the point that, like the comics, the MCU movies/D+ shows, etc. will keep growing and consequentially categorizing into subgenres that there will ultimately be branches for the individual subgenres. Like, I wouldn't be surprised if 5 years from now the D+ Marvel onscreen menu is divided into categories like "Action", "Supernatural", "Cosmic", etc. because they will ultimately have so much content that things will naturally start falling into certain categories. And I'm not complaining about that at all (actually I kinda like this idea). I think of it as becoming a live action comic book store. So for those who like more like "CA:TWS" there will be an "Action" section of D+ with movies/TV shows closely related to that subgenre. Same for Cosmic, Supernatural, etc. Seriously, if they ultimately got it to that point, how cool would that be? Like "it's Friday night, so do I feel like an action Marvel flick, or a cosmic one? You know what? Let's go for supernatural. How about that Moon Knight/Werewolf crossover series?". I'm probably reaching a bit here but I wouldn't be surprised if that's where we find ourselves in a couple of years the way things are headed.

@StSteven -
It is, in fact, a live action comic store and as long as there is an audience they will keep rolling it out. When will I be satisfied? When I see Howard the Duck guarding the Nexus of All Realities with Man Thing. I'm not a huge fan of all of it. Not interested in a lot of the straight action like FATWS but there is an audience for all of it. I was reading comics in the 60's and 70's when all of this stuff was first coming out and in my wildest dreams I couldn't have imagined the MCU. It was so marginalized back then and now the comic nerds have been vindicated.

StSteven - 3/11/2022, 11:41 PM
@Goldboink - Agreed on all points. If I may draw an analogy: The MCU is kind of like a roller coaster, not in the sense where it has it's ups and downs in terms of quality (because I feel that it's pretty good if not great quality consistently), but in the terms of how the stories tend to "ebb and flow". The Infinity Saga was definitely a build up to a crescendo that ended with "Endgame", and now we are in another build up. But what is different this time is that the first time around there was a more narrowed ("Earthbound") focus of the stories to start off with that spread out to the cosmic side by the time we got to IW/EG. Still relatively narrow considering what we are getting into now. Now I feel like Marvel is heading toward the (and I don't mean to cheapen what Marvel is doing in any way because I am a HUGE fan of what they have done and what they are going to do) "buffet" approach, where folks can pick and choose what they like and leave the rest, while still building toward something big.

Likewise, when I was younger I was an X-Men and Spidey fan, first and foremost. I'd pick up Punisher and Ghost Rider sometimes, but I never really got into the Avengers. No big deal because my little high school budget only let me get so much. In retrospect I wish I had gotten more into the Avengers so that I could appreciate the current MCU more (not that I don't appreciate the hell out of it).

But, hey, that's what the comics are there for. Anyone who says that comics are going away and it's all just going to be movie tie-ins is (in my opinion) wrong. As an example I never read Moon Knight when I was younger (and admittedly I didn't even know he existed until probably 8 or 10 years ago), but now that he's coming front and center in D+ I am definitely going to be digging into the comics and everything that I have the time to get my hands on before the show airs.

My final point to you good sir is that if we all put our little CB geeky brains together and try REALLY hard we may, just may, will Howard the Duck to be The One Above All.

Until then, Excelsior my friend!

Hawkeye was so forgettable
DarkDetective - 3/11/2022, 11:14 AM
Why is that every alternate and deleted concept sounds or looks waaaaayyy better than what we end up getting in the show? This is my least favourite Disney Plus show. Such a wasted opportunity.
connorblaze - 3/11/2022, 11:44 AM
It’s all about sticking the landing. Had it done that it would have been remembered as great. The whole show felt like buildup, then fizzled and sputtered with a shitty little ending. What a waste of Kingpin and disappointing reintroduction after all this time. Not to mention Echo going nowhere. Terrible character with a great intro (that first moment with the speakers). I have no idea what they intended with her.
HulkisHoly - 3/11/2022, 12:37 PM
@connorblaze -

Yeah really fizzled into a lame finale.
Origame - 3/11/2022, 2:19 PM
@connorblaze - all build up and no pay off is disney+ in a nutshell.
2050 - 3/11/2022, 12:13 PM
I really enjoyed the Hawkeye show, but Echo was the weakest part of it; a different costume won’t change that. I have no idea how they’ll make her so much more interesting that she can carry her own show. I am interested in what they do with The Clown however. They seem to deviate from the comic, so hopefully they pull him back to his comic book roots (if he appears in Echo).
99OPTIMISTPRIME - 3/11/2022, 1:15 PM
@2050 - Totally agree! Based off of what we saw in Hawkeye, she's gonna need a really charismatic supporting character to play off of.
JDL - 3/11/2022, 2:10 PM
@99OPTIMISTPRIME - Sadly I agree with both of you. Not that she was bad exactly. More that her limitations were too much for her to carry a show. YMMV.
JFerguson - 3/11/2022, 12:25 PM
Yeah some nunchucks would have been cool
Lokiwasright - 3/11/2022, 12:33 PM
Hawkeye was waste only good part was the musical.
Darkknight2149 - 3/11/2022, 1:41 PM
Really hoping they redeem Kingpin in the Echo series. His use in the Hawkeye finale was so damn rushed and disappointing.
web3d - 3/11/2022, 3:33 PM
Did she even get a costume in the show? I just remember her wearing normal clothes.
Pampero - 3/11/2022, 4:12 PM
Nobody cares about Echo...
noahthegrand - 3/12/2022, 1:20 AM
@Pampero - disagree. I thought she was cool
