They are usually leaping off buildings or smashing bad guys to pieces, so these images of Marvel superheroes are sure to be a surprise to some.
Staff at London’s Madame Tussauds were putting the finishing touches to models of a 4.5m tall Hulk, Ironman, Spider-Man and Wolverine ahead of the official opening of Marvel Super Heroes 4D.
While the Hulk was pictured having his nose dusted and his teeth cleaned, Spider-Man had to tolerate a cleaner vacuuming around him, while Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine received a manicure.
The exhibition also includes a specially commissioned animated 3D Marvel film and is the largest show the world famous museum has collected in seven years. It will be unleashed on the public this summer.
