Neat stuff.  I didn't hit upon this because of being a fan of comic books, but because of being a fan of House M.D., which he also does medical takes on.

Funny, I ended up at the same site not long ago too! It's interesting how critical he is of the medical accuracy on House.

I've wondered about that picture of Superman's internal structure myself. Was it done on purpose, or is Pacheco just not much of a medical draughtsman? I'm not particularly good at anatomy, but Superman's insides don't look much like the illustrations in books I've seen. I suppose it would make sense for him to have a few extra organs here and there, like a flight organ and a heat vision organ, but for some reason I'd have put those inside his head.
