     In General 

Crystal Gems

    Steven Universe 
The Half-Human Hybrid son of the Crystal Gems' late leader Rose Quartz and their sole male member. Steven is a warmhearted young lad who loves spending his days in Beach City with his alien guardians and all his human friends.
  • All-Loving Hero: There's not a single person that he doesn't want to see the best in. He even tried to convince Thanos to give up his plans of universal destruction. As expected, it didn't work out.
  • Ancestral Weapon: He gets his gemstone and shield from his mother.
  • Badass Adorable: A cute little boy who is one of Earth's greatest defenders.
  • Cuteness Proximity: When he first meets Cosmo the Space Dog and Blackjack O'Hare, Steven is awestruck by their cuteness. Cosmo is the only one who returns his affections.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Uses the Infinity Gauntlet to restore everything Thanos destroyed to normal and turn the Mad Titan to stone.
    Garnet 
The Stoic de-facto leader of the Crystal Gems who is the fusion of the Gems Ruby and Sapphire.

    Pearl 
The Smart Guy and most loyal follower of Rose Quartz. As such, she's the most motherly towards Steven.
  • Beautiful Slave Girl: Pearls were made to be this, and our Pearl gets really uncomfortable when she's told by a pimp to perform at his club on Contraxia in exchange for the Space Stone.
  • The Confidant: To Rose once upon a time.
    Connie Maheswaran 
The best human friend/love interest of Steven who trains in swordfighting under Pearl.
    Peridot 
A former Gem Homeworld loyalist who came to Earth to check up on the progress of the Cluster before being taken captive by the Gems. However, she would eventually grow into a loyal ally and fully joined them after accidentally insulting her superior.
    Lapis Lazuli 
A terraformer sent down to Earth during the war between the Crystal Gems & Homeworld who was mistaken for a rebel and poofed, later placed in a mirror for thousands of years before being found by Steven. Although she was initially an enemy of the Gems, Steven's positive influence would help her grow into an Aloof Ally.
    Bismuth 
A member of the Crystal Gems from the distant past who was originally a loyalist of Rose Quartz before she was poofed & bubbled when they disagreed on how to handle the Diamonds.
  • Anti-Hero: A Knight Templar who is still pretty friendly with the Gems, though she's a little distrustful of Peridot at first.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: By the time Fantastic Mutants begins, Change your Mind has come and gone, meaning Bismuth is once again a full member of the Crystal Gems and a much more pleasant character all around.

Avengers

    Steve Rogers/Captain America 
Born all the way back in the early 20th century, Steve Rogers tried to enlist as a soldier in World War II when his numerous health conditions made him unfit to serve. However what he lacked in strength, he made up for with a heart of gold and love for his country which made him eligible for the Super Soldier Program that turned him into Captain America.
    Tony Stark/Iron Man 
A genius billionaire playboy philanthropist who loved taking advantage of all his riches until when he was forced to build weapons for the terrorists that captured him. Fortunately for Stark, he would soon build himself a mechanical suit in a cave with only a box of scraps and eliminated his captors before returning home a hero.
    Bruce Banner/Incredible Hulk 
When normal gamma radiation expert Robert Bruce Banner was caught in an accident caused by an experiment Gone Horribly Wrong, it granted him the power to turn into a rampaging green monster whenever he would get angry.

    Thor Odinson 
Crown prince of Asgard and son of the Allfather Odin. Thor wields the mystical Mjolnir which allows him to generate lightning and storms in combat, which makes him a force to be reckoned with.
  • Foil: To Lapis Lazuli. Specific examples include:
    • Thor is a Boisterous Bruiser who values his friends, Lapis is a broken grouch who mostly treasures a few select people.
    • When Thor was trapped on Earth, it was to teach him a lesson and he grew to love the planet. When Lapis was trapped, it wasn't of her own choice and wanted to get out as soon as she was first released from the mirror.
    • Lapis is a lot more slender compared to the very muscular God of Thunder.
  • Only the Chosen May Wield: As the enchantment placed by Odin on Mjolnir goes, "Whoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall carry the power of Thor." Only two other characters have been confirmed worthy so far, Captain America & Steven.
  • Shock and Awe: Take a guess.
