    Hi guys, I thought this would be a fun game to try out since we're stuck at home! How about we compare characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to that of Star Wars? Like what qualities of a character from Marvel match those of a Star Wars character or vice versa? Who is Iron Man in the Star Wars universe? Who is Leia Organa in the MCU? This might be a little hard matching them 100% perfect but this could be fun to try!

    Let's start off with matching characters from the most recent Sequel trilogy to that of the MCU!

    I like this game! It's not easy, but it could be fun!

    Han Solo starts is the most similar in terms of arc in Iron Man 1 (going from not caring whether or not his goods harm others to growing a conscious and becoming a Good Man), but Luke Skywalker and Tony Stark have the exact same arcs in the final movies focusing on them more or less, so you have that too...and like Iron Man, Luke carries most of the franchise on his shoulder.

    Captain America was my first thought lol! Never giving up the battle, never backing down, even against impossible odds and inspiring others to do the same...yeah...Captain America. Or Captain Marvel. That works out really well too.

    Lando is War Machine (vitriolic best buds, has the same "power set" for all intents and purposes, occasionally on the opposite side of the fight but eventually joins the heroes).

    Darth Vader and Thanos (Dark Father indeed!), which in this scenario makes Gamora and Nebula both Luke and Leia (Gamora has Leia's innate qualities, but Thanos treats her more like how Vader treats Luke)...and to build off of this, don't tell me I'm the only one who thought that Star Lord was really just Han Solo MCU Version!

    Rey is most like Peter Parker...

    Kylo Ren is most comparable to Killmonger, but Killmonger is better in every conceivable way (clearer goals, far more sympathetic backstory and motive without that undermining his own villainy, etc). Actually, scratch that. Killmonger's far too good of a villain for Kylo to be compared to. He's Loki (I don't like Loki at all, so this fits even better!)

    Falcon is what Finn could have been. But they also could have turned him into a T'Challa, or anyone else. I'm totally not still upset with Finn's treatment.

    Poe has also been compared to Captain America, and I can see that too, so there's that. He's also a little like Thor in my head for some reason, but alas.

    That's all I can think of. We don't really have a Black Widow in SW canon (that'd be Mara Jade) or Hulk, or Hawkeye, or Scarlet Witch, or Vision...but maybe some day we will...
