CARACAS — The nefarious Marvel Comics Supervillain Red Skull has been seen roaming the streets of Venezuela’s capital, Caracas.

Venezuela isn’t actually dealing with a genocidal, Nazi madman. Henry Damon, 37, has undergone a series of surgeries and tattoo jobs to make him look like the comic bad guy Red Skull, Fox News reported.

The father of two officially goes by the name Red Skull after several implants were added to his forehead. Damon had a portion of his nose removed, his eyeballs tattooed black and face tattooed red in attempt to mimic the Marvel Comics’ villain.

The Venezuelan Red Skull saw his opportunity to transform himself into the vicious villain after meeting med-school dropout Emilio González, who specializes in tattooing and extreme body surgery, according to Fox News.

Before going under the knife, Damon had to go to undergo a series of physical and psychological tests.

“He has loved comic books since he was a kid and always dreamed of being Red Skull, but never got around to doing it,” Damon’s friend Pablo Hernández said, according to the Daily Mail.
