Actor, director and fossil fuel foe Mark Ruffalo stars in “The Avengers” as Bruce Banner, an elite scientist who turns green when he’s angry. Ruffalo’s green off screen as well, no effects team required.

Ruffalo has put a down payment on a Tesla S, an electric luxury car which began rolling off the assembly line June 22. The sedan starts at more than $57,000, and the company plans to build 5,000 units this year (which will leave even famous movie stars waiting in line).

@east_end_ade I am number 6450 on the production list of the Tesla S. I have put down my down payment and now I must wait.

Early reviews are enthusiastic and call the Tesla S “spectacular.”

Other reviews are perhaps too enthusiastic. Some consider it a “duty” to purchase one.
