While watching the movie, it felt like the start spent most of his time doing hair and makeup to look the part. However, the look evolved over time and James Gunn, the director of the movie shared an image on his Twitter. The photo shows a very different look. You can see circuits, tubes, and knobs protruding from his head. The look is very similar to the one in the comics.

The main difference is that he is not so powerful as The Thinker from the comics. Or the one shown in The Flash tv series. Check out the image below.
