A new batch of deranged images from the set of Mad Max: Fury Road reveal a fleet of killing machines, wacky skin mask fashion, and potential nemeses. We're not sure, but we do know that this Mad Max is going to be a lot different from its predecessors, just in terms of special effects and crazy new characters alone. Big time spoilers ahead.

Last month director George Miller gave this semi-coherent plot synopsis:

"Mad Max (Tom Hardy) is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron). This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived."

But what he didn't say was that there would be a crop of mutants running around. Behold! What is this glorious creature?

Neato set and production design, but you know, Max was a cop before the Road Wars, and is a pretty old guy in Thunderdome. Those mutants look to be adults, so exactly when and how did they get born, grow up into their beauteous selves, and develop all that obviously tribal culture?

Inquiring minds want to know!
