RAWR! Marvel Super Heroes Re-Imagined as Dinosaurs

Sweet llamas of the Bahamas! I have seen super heroes re-imagined as Mr Men, furry felines, and even gender-swapped. But I don’t think anything could be as epic as this.

In his series of portraits, Flickr user David Resto (d.r3sto) imagines some popular Marvel comic book characters as if they were creatures from the Cretaceous and the Jurassic periods. It was a time like no other, when Earth’s mightiest dinosaurs found themselves united against a deadly threat, the K-T extinction event. Super dinos Iron Brontosaurus, Captain Ameritops, Hulkasaurus Rex, and AnkyloTHORus united to form The Avengersaurs. Check them out after the jump.

Hulkasaurus Rex






Wasn’t that just dino-mite?!?! Resto is working on more, keep updated either on Flickr or on Tumblr.

Indeed! Iron Brontosaurus is my favourite. I believe people are calling for prints and Resto says that’s a possibility if he gets past all the copyright issues and such.
