The creator of My Hero Academia, Kohei Horikoshi, hasn't been shy about the fact that he is a big fan of the heroes of Marvel Comics, with his heroes and villains definitely seeming as though they are an homage to North American comic books in general. With the mangaka working on the final arc of the series as we speak and the anime adaptation set to hit this fall, a cosplayer has smashed together Deku and Spider-Man via some truly clever cosplay.
While Deku has never met Peter Parker, the worlds of Marvel and My Hero Academia clashed via none other than the Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool, as Wade Wilson's first manga series, Deadpool: Samurai, saw All Might teaming up with the anti-hero. With the two fighting against Thanos, Kohei Horikoshi was able to put his love of Marvel Comics on display and we wouldn't be surprised if we were eventually given another crossover. Peter Parker and Izuku Midoriya might be far different heroes when it comes to their superpowers, but their good hearts and dedication to helping humanity show that they have a lot in common.
Instagram Cosplayer Swaggy Cosplayer fused the Marvel hero with the Shonen crime fighter that sprung from the mind of Kohei Horikoshi, taking some of the best aesthetics from each to create a new comic book superhero that would certainly put a dent into crime:
Besides simply returning to the small screen with its upcoming sixth season, My Hero Academia is set to have a role at this year's Anime Expo taking place later this week, with the Shonen series premiering two of its newest OVAs in North America for the first time. The two original video animations focus on the students of UA Academy forming a baseball team and Deku, Bakugo, and Shoto Todoroki continuing their journey within Endeavor's hero agency.
Do you think we'll one day see the students of Class 1-A crossover with the likes of the Avengers, X-Men, and Fantastic Four? Which heroes do you think will survive Kohei Horikoshi's final arc? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of UA Academy.
