The cosplay photos garnered some positive praise because the suit chosen by the X-Men cosplayer really brings home the fact that Azazel is not just a mutant but one of demonic heritage from a species known as the Neyaphem. Moreover, after being seen wearing that suit in his second appearance on-panel, the costume became a staple for Azazel as one that totally encapsulates the character in all his demonic and heavy metal glory.
