Samuel L Jackson has been great in pretty much every movie I've seen him in. He also happens to play key characters in both the Star Wars and Marvel movie universes - so here's a quick concept idea for a mash-up between his 'Nick Fury' from Marvel's Avengers and 'Mace Windu' from Star Wars. I call him... Mace Fury!!!
(I'm not sure if Mace Fury sounds cool, or if it sounds more like some kind of personal attack protection product!?)
I haven't drawn Mr Jackson before - so I'm pleased with how his likeness came out. I've adapted elements from both characters for the costume and tried to combine them into a believable look. I'm not sure why anyone with Jedi powers and a lightsaber might need a pistol - but I thought I'd add one - just in case 'Mace Fury' also likes to take out his enemies at long range too.
I can't think up any far-fetched idea for how, or why, such a character might ever exist - but I guess we've had weirder 'what if' stories exploring all kinds of strange parallel universes...like Superman vs Muhammad Ali, and Star Trek and the X-Men!
And now that Disney owns both Marvel and Star Wars - who knows whether they've even considered some kind of cross-over themselves? It can only be a matter of time...
