A talented cosplayer brings Iron Man and Thor‘s MCU looks together with an impressive level of detail. As founding members of the original MCU Avengers, Tony Stark and Thor Odinson fought together multiple times throughout the Infinity Saga. However, Stark never gave Thor any technological upgrade and Thor never gave Stark any Asgardian gear. This missed opportunity hasn’t gone unnoticed by fans, as an Iron Man/Thor fusion makes for some visually stunning cosplay.
On Reddit, user u/JohnPhnow shares pictures of their girlfriend wearing a homemade cosplay that merges Iron Man’s Mark 46 armor with Thor’s helmet, cape, and Mjolnir. The blue and gray color scheme also adds a touch of Rescue, and the extra arc reactors on the torso suggests this mashup could have been one of the most powerful Iron Man suits of armor had it been introduced in the MCU. See the images below:
This “Iron Thor” cosplay flaunts a working Iron Man mask and bright lights, not to mention an incredible amount of flexibility. The cosplayer in question, who can be found on social media as @audreyequi7, showcases her suit in motion on TikTok and Instagram. Check out her videos below:
Will Combined Heroes Ever Appear In The MCU?
Collaboration between Tony Stark and Thor to create an Asgardian Iron Man suit isn’t the only way the MCU can introduce a Marvel fusion. The concept of combined heroes has already appeared in the source material more than once, resulting in mashup characters such as the Wolverine/Hulk Hybrid Weapon H, the Punisher/Ghost Rider fusion Cosmic Ghost Rider, and the now-famous Gwenpool — a combination between Gwen Stacy and Deadpool who wasn’t initially intended to join the Marvel Universe but whose popularity earned her a solo series of her own. With the help of the multiverse, the MCU could feature similar mashups in Phases 5 and 6.
The 2018 Marvel Comics storyline Infinity Wars introduced Warp World, a universe within the Soul Stone where every character got merged with another. It features fusions such as Arachknight (Spider-Man + Moon Knight), Soldier Supreme (Captain America + Doctor Strange), and — similar to @audreyequi7’s cosplay — Iron Hammer, the fusion between Iron Man and Thor, also known as Stark Odinson and Sigurd Stark. Just like Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness introduced Earth-838’s short-lived Illuminati, other multiversal MCU movies and shows like Loki season 2, Deadpool 3, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, and Avengers: Secret Wars could visit the MCU’s version of Warp World.
Combined characters haven’t been limited to Marvel fusions. They have also included hybrids between Marvel and DC icons in the form of Amalgam Comics, a collaboration between both companies that gave birth to characters such as the Batman/Wolverine hybrid Darkclaw and the Iron Man/Green Lantern fusion Iron Lantern. However, while possible, a live-action adaptation of these fusions is less likely, as the MCU already has too many multiversal possibilities to explore and the new DC Universe is only beginning to take shape. Likewise, an Iron Man and Thor MCU fusion is unlikely to involve Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth, but it’s still possible during the Multiverse Saga.
