If Tony Stark Was a Genetic Engineer Instead

(click to enlarge)

Here’s a wicked looking piece of concept art from Retrovenus Miravis which imagines what Iron Man might have looked like if Tony Stark was a master of genetics rather than electrical and mechanical engineering.

The result? It’s pretty damn cool if I do say so myself. I’m not sure how I feel about the “nightmare eye” (Soul Calibur reference), but the rest of him is on point. Can we please get a full Avengers horror collection going? Serial Killer Thor, Traitorous Captain America, Hulk…well, Hulk can stay pretty similar I guess. Just make him red.

  • David Forck

    Reminds me a bit of guyver

  • Jason

    That’s uh….that’s just gross.

  • Steve p

    You know there is already a red hulk, right?


  • jake

    Wouldn’t traitorous Thor be better for alliteration, and condemned captain America, and horrific hulk…. Really dropped the ball on the clever factor

  • Artist

    I can set to making that series, if you’d like.

  • Ender88

    Thank you David. That is exactly what I thought too. Symbiote mixed with the Guyver. Still pretty cool.

    and now Black Widow with four asses. (south park reference)

  • Patrick

    I suppose if the name “Iron Man” implied his flesh was or could become at a focal point as hard as “iron” (or whatever Tony Stark’s suit is really made out of at this point)…

  • Jason M

    It’d be harder to cook this up in a cave with a box of scraps.

  • stevevn

    there is already a grey hulk. basically hulks dark side.

  • Bob

    This is bad ass, and bette than anything I could even imagine, but I would love to see the rest.

  • Korky

    This is fucking awesome!

  • Bert

    That’s from Soul Calibur? I thought he was just Eye-ron Man.

  • Brad

    Perhaps this could be explained as the Extremis virus taken to the extreme. Heh.

  • J

    He made a Guyver Unit

  • Naos

    So basically Spawn.

  • Matt

    @steven. Grey hulk isnt the dark side of hulk its the first hulk. His name is also joe-fix-it. He is all the strength plus most of banners brains he is a smart hull which is really dangerous for his enemies. Red hulk is more like the evil hulk even though it isnt banner.

  • Kmart

    Instead of power he should use life force so either way if he uses to much he dies.
