Superheroes are supposed to be sexy…right…?

On the cover of today’s Entertainment Weekly, there was one Avenger who I didn’t recognize: Mark Ruffalo as Dr. Bruce Banner.

Banner is supposed to be a 90-pound weakling, someone that bullies kick sand at before he discovers Atlas. The physicality is part of his character – the Hulk acts out the things Banner can’t or won’t. He wasn’t lucky enough for a super soldier serum like Captain America’s Steve Rogers. He goes crazy instead.

But the cover of the magazine has Ruffalo sporting this come hither pose, as cheesy as a Ben Stiller Zoolander. I had to laugh a little. I guess he needed to compete with the other hunks in the movie. (When I went to see Thor, the ticket taker said to me “Chris Hemsworth…definitely worth the price of admission.”)
