Waxing lyrical - comic book hero's massive likeness is Madame Tussauds latest Marvel

It seems that even enraged superheros need to take good care of their teeth - as a sculptor appears to be 'flossing' the Incredible Hulk at Madame Tussauds.

The less-than-jolly green giant is part of a new Marvel Super Heroes attraction and - at 14ft 6in, with eyes the size of cricket balls - it is the largest figure in the history of the world-famous museum.

The enormous monster is one of five Marvel stars to go on display, as well as X-Men's Wolverine and The Fantastic Four's Susan Storm.

However, by dint of his physical presence, The Hulk will certainly be the main attraction.

Giant: at 14ft 6in tall and with eyes the size of cricket balls, the Hulk is the largest figure created by the museum. It is modelled on the computer-generated monster in the Hollywood films of 2003 and 2008

The clay sculpture currently being worked on will provide the template for the final wax figure of the legendary comic-book hero.

It is a likeness of the computer-generated monsters from the hollywood films Hulk (2003) and The Incredidle Hulk (2008). While the Hulk's alter ego Dr David Banner was played by actors Eric Bana and Edward Norton respectively, Tussauds sculptors did not need to copy the actors' features.

For X-Men's Wolverine, for example, sculptors replicated the features of Hugh Jackman, who plays the reluctant hero in the X-Men films.

And for The Fantastic Four, Sue Storm is modelled on actress Jessica Alba. The museum's bosses clearly decided to do things the hard way - after all, they could have depicted Storm as her alter ego: The Invisible Woman.

The Marvel Super Heroes 4D display - which will also feature Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Nick Fury - is set to open early summer.
