The Silver Surfer has always been one of my favourite Marvel characters but is woefully underused, mainly because he’s actually really boring despite having a completely cool aesthetic. He’s also not as marketable for a sex toy as members of the Avengers, which is probably a big minus for Marvel’s executive board.
Nevertheless, one artist named Cris Alex has decided to creep us out massively with his rendition of the Silver Surfer. Check it out below, and look real hard if you can’t figure out what’s so weird about it:

You can only really tell if you notice the underwear – like the Silver Surfer ever wears underwear – or the faint outline of his toes but it definitely is a real person and can be proved by the picture below. This is the one that is going to freak you out:
Gross huh? I don’t think we’ll ever look at the Silver Surfer the same way again. I mean I always thought there was no way he wore pants.
