Star Wars meets Marvel - Mace Fury by Robert-Shane Star Wars meets Marvel - Mace Fury by Robert-Shane
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... :)

My parents laugh at me every time we watch Star Wars 'cause I can never remember Mace Windu's name so I call him Nick Fury.XD

lol... well maybe now you could just call him mace fury so you'll always be 50% right whether you're watching an avengers or star wars movie! :)

...makes me think: Samuel L Jackson's character in Star Wars would have been SO much better with much more shouting! (even minus the profanities which i'm guessing would not get through the censor) :lol:

Noyce. Can definitely see it..
Though my first thought was of Jolee Bindo from Bioware's original KOTOR. Grey jedi who does whatev tf he feels necessary wherever he feels like he needs to(kashyyk initally). Even has a similar look about him.

...thanks... and I'm not familiar with Jolee Bindo... but makes me think that there must be something interesting about the idea of Jedi who are a bit more ready to 'enforce' peace over the extremely passive seeming Jedi in the movies.

Wait, didn't the same actor play both these characters?

yep - just like I explain in my description - it's why I think this crossover makes more sense than most. The only other actor (that I'm aware of) to have played parts in both universes on the big screen is Natalie Portman (Padme/Amidala is Star Wars and Jane Foster in Marvel's Thor) - but neither of her characters have the visual impact of Mr Jackson!
