Iron Man might want to watch his back. He could have some stark competition in this caterpillar (pictured below.) The photo of the budding super hero first appeared on Imgur and Gaga Mix:

In true superhero fashion, not much is known about this small, green vigilante, but its resemblance to our favorite iron clad, laser beam shooting, explosion-prone billionaire philanthropist is without question.

And the photo has generated considerable buzz as it makes the rounds on the internet. “Iron Man – Now available in forest green!” one person commented on Imgur. “When the metamorphosis happens does he become Thor or something?” another pondered.

We’re not sure if Iron Man can sweat, but he’s got to be worried.

What a startling co-incidence. Is Nature following Iron Man, or is this an indication of alert intelligence that monitors humankind(joke?)

That has got to be one of the creepiest things I've seen... Wondering if it's been photoshopped!

@artanat That's a real caterpillar - and that's the butt end.  What's creepy though is the fact that it seems to like the camera...

@jennyj6247 @artanat It's assuming a defensive position. It has evolved those markings to fool potential predators into believing it's much bigger than it is.
