SATIRE: Marvel Turns Hulk Into Potato
Marvel Turns Incredible Hulk Into Potato, Re-Imagines Other Avengers
Thor's a woman. Captain America's black. Other Avengers will now be pointlessly changed.
The remaining Avengers cast is expected to receive the same pointless re-imaginings as have been received by Captain America and Thor, Marvel Comics announced in a press release last week.
Two Avengers characters had previously received makeovers, with Thor being turned into a woman, and Captain America turned into an African-American. Now the rest of the Avengers will follow suit and receive their own makeovers.
These proposed changes include turning Spider-man into an actual spider, turning Iron Man into a trashcan, turning Hawkeye into a unicorn, and turning the Incredible Hulk into a potato.
