Germany’s Next Top Model had a photo shoot where the contestants dressed up as their idea of “Native Americans” — scantily-clad models in seductive poses wearing war bonnets. I put five of the models on the same canvas and they became the multi-headed monster Hydra. Hydra is also an evil organization in Marvel Comics, so who better to fight this evil than the Hulk?
