Brussels - Return of the Hulk

Now that the last month of the year has begun, I remembered a picture I took during the previous New Year celebrations at the sound and light show on the Grand Place (Grand-Place / Grote Markt) in Brussels.

On the picture you see the City Hall that was built on the south side of the square between 1401 and 1455. It towers 96 meters (315 ft) high and is capped by a 3 meter (12 ft) statue of Saint Michael slaying a demon.
Information found on Wikipedia.

At the bottom of the foreground you see the same image on a tablet of tourists from Québec.

Without tripod, camera pushed against a wall.

It was only the green colour that reminded me of the Hulk. Do you remember this super hero?
The Hulk emerged after physicist Robert Bruce Banner was exposed to a high dose of gamma radiation of an experimental bomb he made. Since then, each time he fusses, he turns into the Hulk. His muscles swell and become stronger. However, his intelligence drops to the level of a five year old kid. Furthermore, his skin turns green. The Hulk was a fictional comic book hero as well as the vedette in a television series and in a cinema movie.
I admit that my fantasy sometimes takes excessive forms but life without a good dose of imagination would be a lot duller.
