Marvel Superhero Dinosaur Crossovers

People love superheroes and people love dinosaurs, so it’s only natural that the two cross paths at some point. These awesome illustrations by d.r3sto bring them together in a literal sense, blending man with beast until ending up with some hilarious dinosaur superheroes. Each one also has a simple, yet quite attractive background that serves to bring out the character even further.

Ankylosaurus/Thor

The Ankylosaurus is known for being an armored beast with a club at the end of its tail, but that club was actually a magical war hammer named Mjolnir which allowed it to crush its enemies as well as fly.

Tyrannosaurus Rex/Hulk

Tyrannosaurus Rex is probably the most famous dinosaur, a fierce predator viewed by many to basically be the carniverous badass of the dinosaurs. However, this is only its secondary form; normally, the T-Rex exists as a Compsognathus named Bruce Banner until its change is triggered by stress or rage.

Triceratops/Captain America

Triceratops, the well-known herbivore, is best known for its three horns, but also the large frill behind its head. Designed as a super-soldier, Triceratops used this shield-like frill and super-strength to fight for America in World War II.

Brontosaurus/Iron Man

The Brontosaurus is often viewed as a massive, lumbering dinosaur with a long neck, suited to eat leaves from the tallest points of trees. But what about trees that are even taller than this towering beast? Well, that’s what its rocket boots were for, allowing it to soar to the highest heights and eat the tastiest leaves.

Stegosaurus/Colossus

Stegosaurus is another armored dinosaur, known primarily for the numerous spike plates down the length of its body. However, when threatened, its thick skin is able to turn into a hard metal, making it invulnerable to any physical attack.

Carnotaurus/Daredevil

Carnotaurus has an interesting name, with Carno- meaning “blind” and -taurus meaning “defender of Hell’s Kitchen”. Whatever this dinosaur lacks due to its blindness is more than made up for with its echolocation and fighting skills.
