Can't argue with that last one!
Captain American is less whiny than Luke though.
They also share a huge box office take.


Nice comparisons. Never thought of this before.
I like the last one, and the Natalie Portman one.

Mace Windu and Nick Fury do have a passing resemblance. Maybe you're on to something there.

Those are some pretty strong similarities.

i see the sims... but don't think there is a closeness. the avengers was written by hippies in the 60's and lucas... got his concepts from matinee serials in the 30's 40's... but in space instead of the westerns.

Ha, I don't know... I think Star Wars is based on the Japanese movie 'Hidden Fortress.
