If you were a cartoon kid back in the 1990s, then you surely know who Johnny Bravo is. The blond-haired greaser was the star of Cartoon Network’s titular hit, but it’s been some time since fans have seen the guy. Luckily for otakus, it looks like Johnny resurfaced online not too long ago, and it was to grace one hilarious My Hero Academia mash-up.
Over on Deviant Art, an artist by the name of TheBlacksmith02 did the world a favor by mashing up Johnny Bravo and My Hero Academia. The artwork, which can be found here, reimagines All Might as the cartoon character with sunglasses and all.
All Might still has his insanely muscular body filled out, and the pro hero is wearing his suit as well. However, the buff legend has taken a few style points from Johnny. All Might traded in his slicked-back hair for the other guy’s gravity defying quaff. The inheritor of One For All can also been seen rocking Johnny’s sweet sunglasses, and he rocks the shades.
Fans of My Hero Academia are loving the new mash-up, but this is not the first time they have seen the crossover. All Might has long been compared to Johnny Bravo because of their similarly cartoonish builds. The Cartoon Network star may have preferred dressing in jeans, but Johnny had exaggerated muscles underneath his tight black t-shirts. All Might looks much the same when Toshinori Yagi is using One For All, but girls do not need to be weary of the anime icon. All Might isn’t half as boorish as his cartoon counterpart.
For those who aren't familiar with My Hero Academia, the manga by creator Kohei Horikoshi began publishing back in July 2014. Bones Studios adapted the series into an anime in 2016, and the series has quickly become a phenomenon. My Hero Academia takes place in a world full of people with quirks, which you might recognize as superpowers. Except Izuku Midoriya doesn't have one.
Izuku Midoriya has always wanted to be a hero, but he was born without a quirk. When the world’s leading superhero All-Might chooses Izuku to be his successor, the boy’s world is turned upside-down as he gains a quirk, a new school, and a set of very dangerous enemies.
