Imaginative fiction in comic books and movies such as Marvel’s The Avengers rely on believable-enough images to convey their fantastic stories. Incredible Hulk Anatomy by Scientific American Blogs’ own Glendon Mellow takes this realism to a different depth. Describing this fan art, Mellow, argues, ” Established characters borne of exaggerated real world scientific causes could probably use science-inspired revisions.” Much like the influence scientific developments are having on the world of art, described regularly on Symbiartic, co-blogged by Glendon Mellow and Kalliopi Monoyios.

Note: The Incredible Hulk is Marvel Comics, and Mellow’s image is uncommissioned fan art.
