Hack Week Badge

Welcome to the second annual Verge Hack Week. We're totally blowing up our site: we've given our reporters and editors the entire week to play with new tools and experiment with new storytelling ideas, while members of our amazing product team have gathered in New York to help build all sorts of interesting new things.

This morning on The Verge you probably saw the hunktastic trailer for the upcoming horror reboot Victor Frankenstein. "But Bryan," I hear you asking, "what about the poster?" Thankfully we've got that as well, but you might notice a few things that seem a little... odd. Like how James McAvoy apparently has Mr. Spock's eyebrows. Or how his head is awkwardly Photoshopped around (or is it on top?) of his collar. And then there's the image of Daniel Radcliffe's Igor.

Don't get me wrong; I like to paint Harry Potter faces on things as much as the next guy, but what's been captivating me most of the day is the strange combination of other faces that seem to have been massaged together to create this poster version of Igor. He's got the haunted, piercing eyes of Kurt Cobain, matched with the strong chin of a young(er) Jude Law. But don't take my word for it:

It's uncanny, isn't it?

What other faces were cribbed from to make this poster? What other Star Trek characters are referenced with McAvoy's face? Who am I? More importantly, who are you?

Take a closer look, and let us know in the comments.
