I got a random thought today: Naruto characters in the Marvel universe. Who do you think would be who? (I seem to *really* like the idea of Madara as Bucky)
Ahaha, I have so many thoughts about this. You
will might regret you asked.
So! Depending on which generation we’re looking at, there are a bunch of parallels and I adore them
Opinionated kid who grew up into a strong soldier but lost pretty much everything along the way? Yeah, Kakashi is Steve Rogers.
Aaaand that perfectly sets up the parallel for Obito-Bucky. I mean, brainwashed and crazy, deadly assassin, very high body count, moments of sanity, lost best friend, etc.
Jiraiya as Thor. Come on. Just - Jiraiya as Thor.
Orochimaru as Loki. Is that not lovely and amazing and perfect? Oro would make the best Loki, right down to being genderfluid.
Tsunade as Sif. Only twice as BAMF, because Tsunade.
Let’s ignore the Rin-Peggy part, because I personally would rather have Rin-Natasha. Less tragic death, more badassness.
Switch arrows for senbon and you can totally slot Genma in as Clint. I kind of headcanon their senses of humor are similar, too.
Asuma as Nick Fury? I think that could work. He’d definitely be Done With Everything to appropriate levels. And Kurenai as Maria Hill! Which would absolutely make Gai Phil Coulson (the fanboyness!)
KUSHINA AS TONY STARK. And Minato can totally be Pepper. He would make a lovely Rescue.
The genius inventor must have a science bro to be ambiguously gay with, so Mikoto as Bruce Banner. Maybe instead of the Hulk she turns into one of the Susanoo forms? That would be awesome. And Fugaku is her Betty.
He and Minato can totally be gay for each other if the girls get to be, just saying.
Tobirama as Doctor Strange! Arrogant, handsome, soaks up knowledge like a sponge, totally takes risks for reasons that mostly boil down to well it looked interesting.
Though, that said, I would also be overjoyed to see Hashirama as Johnny Storm, Tobirama as Reed Ricards, Mito as Sue Storm, and Madara as Ben Grimm. Just - the founders as the Fantastic Four.
Touka would kick as as Captain Marvel/Warbird, yes?
And how about Izuna as Spider-Man? Just for fun.
(Let’s not leave the Young Avengers out of this. Sasuke and Naruto would 10000% be Teddy and Billy respectively. Sakura can be Kate, Sai can be Noh-Varr, Ino can be America, Tommy…maybe Lee? Because Shikamaru is definitely David Alleyne, and I feel like Tenten would be a decent fit for Cassie. Neji as Elliot, and I can’t quite think of anyone for Jonas or Nate.)
