Incredible Hulk Anatomy by Glendon Mellow


TOP LEFT: The Skull

Note muscle-anchoring protuberances and ridges not found in average frontal and zygomatic bones.

Enlarged and bifurcated nasal cavities; see Appendix 3.1 for discussion and speculation of respiratory efficiency. See also; ribcage and spinal cord sinuses.

Note disproportion of maxilla to mandible.

TOP RIGHT: The Skull

Grossly enlarged frontal fontanelle, similarity to Zinjanthropus found in 1959.

Three scars unhealed grazing left ocular cavity; unusually, no traces of foreign molecules present.

Connective tissue spurs above eyeteeth at gumline.

Note complete absence of tooth decay or erosion.

Analysis of blood vessel to marrow ratios reveals skeletal system itself surprisingly fragile relative to comparisons with muscle and tissue tensile densities.

BOTTOM RIGHT: Musculature

Layers of cartilage and dense marrow-like tumours surround blood vessels; protecting both vessels and braincase simultaneously.

Jaw muscles extend to skull ridge homologous to gorilla.

Note muscles allowing subject to shut nostrils: unheard of in primates. This trait normally found in desert-dwelling ungulates such as dromedary camel.

Jaw may lock while mandible is at any degree of extension.

Elasticity of muscle tissues allows striations and contractions on 4-axis per muscle. Eyes and mouth can close using enormous, continuous pressure.
