Homer Simpson? Hank Hill? Shrek? Thanos's face in the Avengers: Infinity War has become a hilarious meme

I guess Mario can use Cappy to capture Thanos too...

As pointed out by Polygon, Thanos's face has become somewhat of a meme. This is thanks to its changed appearance in Marvel's trailer for Avengers: Infinity War.

Apparently, this started because one of the writers from Late Night with Steven Colbert, Daniel Kibblesmith, Tweeted out a picture of Thanos mentioning that there was a "search for Thanos's little hat." This would cause users to start photo-shopping the image with hats and hairdos.

Somehow, this ended up evolving into photo-shopping Thanos's face instead. He was made to look like many recognizable characters like Shrek, Homer Simpson, and Hank Hill.

In the case of the Homer Simpson and Hank Hill pictures, Thanos was also given something to hold. The iconic doughnut and beer for their respective characters.

As for the Super Mario Odyssey reference, he also had an added mustache. Fans have obviously put some effort into this meme...

Here's a handful of the images. Check them out:
