Could you imagine a Gamma-infused 50 Cent?
Were 50 "Fofty" Cent to exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's hard to imagine his moral alignment skewing heroic. In fact, 50's subtle brand of trollish villainy would likely find him throwing in with the rogue's gallery, perhaps lending his wits to the Brotherhood Of Evil Mutants or The Sinister Six. Yet 50 has come to liken himself to one of the Avengers, seeing Bruce Banner and his green counterpoint as a spirit animal of sorts. Taking to Instagram, 50 joked that his newfangled "Fofty" alter-ego is the Hulk to his Banner, a statement that is not entirely inaccurate. Clearly, none of Fif's myriad enemies much like him when he's angry.

Yet it's hard to imagine 50 joining the fight against Thanos, when he seemingly has more in common with The Mad Titan than one of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. It makes you wonder - if 50 were a Marvel character, who would he be? He cuts a formidable cloth like Tombstone, but he's far more conniving than a b-rate player. Perhaps Magneto or Dr. Doom would be a closer analogy, given his noted sense of Machiavellian intelligence, though the latter's worldly ambitions may be too lofty for Fif.
For now, the Hulk comparison holds true enough, though Fifty being Banner requires a little bit of stretched credulity. Make sure to pay your debts, lest you find yourself "Fofty Smashed."
