Video Game Avengers Assemble! Fan Art Mashup
I’m not sure why, but photoshop mash-ups of fandoms i’m into seem to be the fun way to express my creativity lately. Here is my latest my interpretation of Video Game characters that would best fit the Avengers. I have Mass Effect’s Shepard/Captain America, Halo’s Master Chief/Iron Man (I’m sure at one point or another John-117 has worn the Mark IV), Metroid’s Samus Aran/Black Widow, God of War’s Kratos/Thor, Assassin’s Creed’s Connor/Hawkeye, Metal Gear’s Solid Snake/Nick Fury. I know there are probably other better matches but I tended to choose the games and characters I’m really into. Maria Hill, Agent Coulson, War Machine are other characters i’m thinking of doing next.
UPDATE: Thanks to some awesome suggestions, from Yoshi, Bane, Blanka, Shadow of the Colossus, and Rick Taylor to Brick from Borderlands, and based on what official artwork I could find I think we have a Hulk mash-up now, Brick from Borderlands/Hulk and runner-up Rick Taylor. I would like to thank themagnificentbitch.tumblr.com & hardestcopy.tumblr.com who’s were the first 2 to make the recommendation. Enjoy!
I also added the a Ganondorf from Legend of Zelda/Loki as the Villain.
UPDATE 2: Been getting a lot of feedback on “Black Metroid’s” name, here is some clarification on my thought process I know her name is Samus Aran, if I was basing it on her character’s name I would’ve called her “Natasha Aran” or “Samus Romanov,” but i’m basing it on her super hero name which is a “Black Widow”… a dangerous and deadly creature, I “mashed up” the name of the character “Black Metroid” not after the name of the game but after the dangerous and deadly creature in the game which is a “Metroid”. I think I tried to get too creative or clever in my naming sorry for the confusion.
UPDATE: Added a group shot, and a Phil Coulson, Loki & Maria Hill, check out my newer post.
