Interest in the characters of Marvel Comics’ The Avengers has soared with the latest blockbuster.
Scientific American blogger Glendon Mellow has attempted to show the facial Anatomy of The Incredible Hulk.
I tried to draw on not only my mother’s nursing school anatomy textbooks, but also gorilla and hominid ancestor skulls (such as Paranthropus, though my murky text identitifies it with the outdated Zinjanthropus name), inspiration for things like the cranial ridge and large jaw muscles. I included details such as 3 scars on the bone (I’m Canadian: Wolverine wrecked his face a few times and I wanted to document that) and perfect glowing teeth. If anyone has perfect shiny teeth, it needs to be Hulk.
He doesn’t explain how he managed to convince The Hulk to pose for him.
