Street Fighter 4's Abel was originally going to look a lot different, according to a translation of a recent post on the Japanese Super Street Fighter 4 blog by

It reads...
"With Abel, we wanted to make someone representative of 'the weak can beat the strong,' and so he was originally a small judo character who could be mistaken for a girl."

Compare this to the current Abel. Do you think Capcom should have kept Abel's design like this, or are you happy they made him the current character we know today? Leave a comment with what you think of this concept sketch below.
