This was just plain fun. Originally the idea was to draw Family Guy characters as comic character as inspired by my bud
. I will be posting that as well but this is coloured and I personally think it looks awesome.
There is a reason for each character being who they are:
Fry as Captain America: because when you think on it, their origin is the same. Born in one time, frozen, then awoken in another. Originally I wasn't going to do the Ultimate Universe and still have Fry as Captain America but a problem I found was without actually seeing his hair, Fry just looked like a Simpsons/Futurama version of Captain America without actually looking like Fry. I realised it was because of the hair being missing. So a choice, draw him without the mask OR draw the Ultimate Cap holding his helmet in his hand.
Leela as She-Hulk: She has a temper and is prone to hitting people.
Zoidberg as Man-Thing: Originally I planned on making him the Hulk to go with a monster that people don't like motif but because Leela is She-Hulk I went against it and picked Man-Thing instead which I think worked out better.
Bender as Iron Man: I'm sure there's a percentage of that metal he is made of being iron somewhere since there 30%dolamite, 30% titanium, etc. Plus with Bender's alcoholic tendencies it seemed to fit.
Professor Farnsworth as Professor X: Even without Professor being in both there names this just fitted. I did originally comtemplate putting the Cerebro helmet on him but like Fry, part of the characteristic appearance of the professor is his liver spots so I decided against it.
Aimee as The Wasp: There wasn't a lot of thought put into Aimee admittidly. In the first Ultimate arc there was a discussion as to who would play who if the Ultimate was a movie. Nick Fury stated Samuel L Jackson would play him (thus why he actually does now), Brad Pitt for Cap, Matthew McConaughey as Giant Man, and Lucy Liu for the Wasp. Wasp was slightly taken aback by the comment thinking the only reason this choice was made was because she was asian. So as a testament to THAT, Aimee is the Wasp.
Hermes as Nick Fury: Hermes was actually the hardest to come up with. I wanted somebody smart who not everybody got or liked who was actually quite smart. Originally I thought of Mr Fantastic but then like a smack in the face with a fish Nick Fury came to mind.
Hope you enjoy.
