Marvel fans are often upset when a comic book character is changed in the MCU, but James Gunn has found a way to prevent this: don’t reveal it. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the High Evolutionary was different from the source material, but no one knew until a fan asked about it. One week after the film’s release, Gunn revealed that the MCU’s High Evolutionary differs from his comics counterpart in one way: he doesn’t have the same name. A Twitter user asked Gunn if the villain is still named Herbert Wyndham. Gunn’s response was, “It is not because he’s from an alien planet.”

In the comics, Wyndham was a scientist mentored by the X-Men villain Nathaniel Essex, who eventually went into space to create his own species. The MCU’s High Evolutionary is an alien who visited Earth, indicating his origins were different. This change is smart, as it would be awkward if a villain named Herbert was one of the darkest and most detestable in the cinematic universe.
