Avatar Aang Meets Spider-Man In AI Art

Avatar Aang and Spider-Man become friends in some AI-generated art that imagines an unlikely Nickelodeon x Marvel team-up using the DALL·E mini program.

Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender and Marvel’s Spider-Man come together as Aang meets a cartoon-y Peter Parker in some AI-generated art. Audiences were first introduced to Avatar Aang in 2005 via the widely adored Nickelodeon animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender. Zach Tyler Eisen voiced the young Avatar as he embarked on a perilous journey to end a 100-year war. Avatar: The Last Airbender sees him struggle with the overwhelming title and power placed upon him too young, but he thankfully doesn’t have to bear this burden alone as his ever-expanding group of friends are often right behind him when facing danger. Similarly, Marvel’s latest Spider-Man (played by Tom Holland) has been supported through each challenge by his friends, family, and mentors, as seen recently with the blockbuster hit Spider-Man: No Way Home.

The anime-inspired cartoon has gained revitalized interest with audiences following the announcement of three new Avatar movies from Paramount’s Avatar Studios and Netflix’s live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series.

The live-action show has pulled in some of Marvel’s alumni for its Fire Nation cast, starting with new Fire Lord Ozai actor Daniel Dae Kim, who appeared in 2003’s Hulk and 2004's Spider-Man 2. Also included in this list is Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings actor Dallas Liu, who portrays the new live-action Prince Zuko.

Another Marvel-Avatar match-up is imagined as The Last Airbender’s Aang and Spider-Man meet. An unlikely interaction between these characters occurs in some AI-generated art. The popular program DALL·E mini was given the prompt “Spider-Man meets Avatar Aang” and created a series of pictures. These images range from sweet and wholesome to somewhat eerie thanks to the the faceless depictions of the familiar heroes. Check out the images below:

Using the DALL·E mini program has become something of a trend as people can create fun images with ease. This is a particularly intriguing concept to film and TV fanatics who are now able to see their favorite characters interacting regardless of the universe they originally appear in. The results are hilarious as the situations are usually outlandish, and the images often come out looking slightly incorrect, as seen in the above pictures.

While this collaboration between Spider-Man and Aang is surprising, there is some key commonality between the characters. Aang’s biggest obstacles are often those that put a strain on his strong moral compass, like when the previous Avatars told Aang that he must kill Fire Lord Ozai, which clashes with his entire belief system. Similarly, Spider-Man always strives to do the right thing. No Way Home saw Holland’s Spider-Man struggle to keep his normally staunch moral compass as he was faced with threats like never before. Given that Spider-Man and Avatar: The Last Airbender are completely separate franchises, it’s unlikely that these characters will ever interact in their canons, but it’s interesting to imagine how they might work together with fun images like these.
