MCU's Avengers & DCEU's Justice League Swapped Is Perfect

As far as live-action superheroes are concerned, the only thing that can match the Justice League are the Avengers -- or maybe that's vice versa. It's a notion taken to the next level in a series of role-reversal illustrations by popular fan artist BossLogic.

The Australian graphic artist, known on social media for his hyper-realistic fan art, delivers his most epic celebrity switch yet: the actors playing the Justice League and the Avengers with each other's roles.

Dubbed "ElseBothworlds," the series began with Thor and Aquaman swapping actors. Both Chris Hemsworth and Jason Momoa have elegantly flowing locks, but Hemsworth's natural blond hair perfectly complements Aquaman's classic cut from the comics, while Momoa's brooding dark eyes gleam with rare Asgardian promise.

BossLogic followed that up with a Wonder Woman and Black Widow quick switch. Gal Gadot's Princess Diana and Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanoff couldn't be more different if they tried, and yet BossLogic made it work. Gadot's rechristened red hair looks impressively at home in Natasha's S.H.I.E.L.D. uniform, while Johansson's fiery gaze matches Diana's inextinguishable fighting spirit.

Then came Captain America and Superman. Henry Cavill is a gallant red-and-blue knight in shining armor in Steve Rogers' Kevlar straps, while Chris Evans' Clark Kent is an impeccable reproduction of the Last Son of Krypton.

Batman and Iron Man are the playboy, inventive geniuses of their teams without whose brainpower and resources the Justice League and the Avengers would be nothing. Ben Affleck and Robert Downey Jr. were also the conflicted wonder boys of their time, both charming and equally gifted in their own unique way. Swapping their roles was the ultimate no-brainer.

And it works. Affleck (and his long-faced, penciled goatee) is comics-accurate Tony Stark in the Iron Avenger's gleaming visage, while Downey's tortured gaze is a flawless depiction of Bruce Wayne's chaotic psyche, and the Dark Knight he constantly hides behind.

"ElseBothworlds" started out as a fun experiment, exploring the greatest and most riveting what-ifs of the comic book industry. BossLogic was inspired by Arrowverse's upcoming "Elseworlds" event, and is frequently encouraged by fans to produce more.
