Best Characters that Could Fit Into Marvel

Considering the Marvel Universe is extremely diverse and creative, there is a possibility that characters and/or series outside of comic books can somehow fit into it and feel like they do work in it.

What characters' from different media platforms do you think could work in the Marvel Universe?

The Top Ten

1 Kratos - God of War Kratos - God of War Kratos is a fictional character and the titular primary protagonist and anti-hero of the God of War video game series. He is a demi-god who seeks retribution and vengeance on Ares and later, the Greek Gods after he was betrayed and was forced to kill his family .

He looks like he could be some sort of sidekick for Thanos. Just my opinion. - PhoenixAura81

This one is an easy top spot. A lot of Marvel's godlike beings are mostly derived from mythology found in the real world. Kratos could work really well, being a sort of anti-hero/misguided villain frequently coming to blows against Thor. That would be an amazing matchup by the way. - CrimsonShark

2 Ken Kaneki - Tokyo Ghoul Ken Kaneki - Tokyo Ghoul

Tokyo Ghoul is actually quite similar to the X-Men in that Mutants and Ghouls are normally feared and persecuted by mankind. Kaneki could function somewhat similar in the Marvel Universe, except his half-Ghoul nature could make him unpredictable and savage at times. He could definitely work as a tragic hero in Marvel. - CrimsonShark

3 Agent 47 - Hitman Agent 47 - Hitman Agent 47 is a fictional character and main protagonist of the Hitman video game series released by IO Interactive and Square Enix Europe.

This guy could very easily serve as a foil to Black Widow and serve as an opponent/trump card for SHIELD. Not to mention Agent 47's story arc could also mesh in well with other street-level heroes such as the Punisher, Daredevil and even Spider-Man. - CrimsonShark

4 Alex Mercer - Prototype Alex Mercer - Prototype

Mercer would work so well for Marvel. He could work like Carnage, except he has a large-scale plan and reaches a global-level threat. His origins is similar to many Marvel characters, and his anti-hero to villain progression could really impact the Marvel Universe in devastating ways. I'd say he could work either way as a foe for the X-Men or the Avengers. - CrimsonShark

5 Predator - Predator Predator - Predator The Predator is a fictional extraterrestrial species featured in the Predator science-fiction franchise, characterized by its trophy hunting of other species for sport.

The Guardians of the Galaxy would have a really tough time against the Predator. The Predator is also pretty unique and could serve as a galactic apex predator, hunting down dangerous creatures and foes as trophies and seeing the Guardians as a formidable opponent. The Predator's species, Yautja can be explored more as well. Yes, the Predator has had a comic series of its own, but I think Marvel could do a really good job with it. - CrimsonShark

6 Samus Aran - Metroid Samus Aran - Metroid Samus Aran is the protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action-adventure game series by Nintendo.

Samus could serve as an ally to the Guardians of the Galaxy, occasionally helping them and getting Thanos's and the Predator's attention. Her origin, abilities and feats would great suit her for galactic space travels in Marvel. - CrimsonShark

7 Raiden - Mortal Kombat Raiden - Mortal Kombat Raiden is a video game character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series by Midway Games. Making his official debut as one of the original seven playable characters in 1992's Mortal Kombat, he is one of the central characters of the franchise.

Yes, he has been involved in video games based on DC (Maybe because he is owned by Warner Bros.), but Raiden is better suited for Marvel. Being a more "grounded" god based on Japanese folklore, Raiden could serve as a mentor to most superheroes and can be a worthy for for global an galactic scale opponents like Thanos and Dormammu. That, and he could also be a good substitute for Thor, whose relationship can turn out to be unique if given the chance. - CrimsonShark

8 Spike Spiegel - Cowboy Bebop Spike Spiegel - Cowboy Bebop

Like Samus and the Predator, Spike and the Bebop crew would tangle well in Marvel's emphasis on space. He might seem similar to the Guardians sure, but their adventures could be a lot more grounded. A combination of space and street level adventuring would be pretty unique to be honest. - CrimsonShark

9 Samurai Jack - Samurai Jack Samurai Jack - Samurai Jack "Jack" (also known as Samurai Jack or simply The Samurai) is the alias taken by a Japanese warrior (with an unknown birth name) who acts as the titular protagonist of the cartoon Samurai Jack. Throughout the series, he is voiced by Phil LaMarr.

Samurai Jack could fit well for the Marvel universe as someone who could train hand-to-hand combat experts like Wolverine in using swords. That, and he could serve as a rival to a villain, the Silver Samurai, whom could give Jack a really hard time. - CrimsonShark

10 Pennywise - It Pennywise - It It (sometimes capitalized as IT), more commonly known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, is the titular main antagonist of the novel, its 2017 film adaptation and the 1990 TV adaptation. It was portrayed to be a shapeshifting and malevolent entity millions (possibly billions) of years old, and with no more.

Marvel is known for its supernatural villains, though not as much as DC. Pennywise is pretty unique for being someone who kills someone as a victim's worst nightmare and could set up an origin story for the Young Avengers, whom would go on to become his archenemy. - CrimsonShark
