Who Every 'Avengers' Character Is in 'Game of Thrones'

That's a lot of Starks.

HBO / Marvel Studios

The Marvel Cinematic Universe and HBO’s Game of Thrones have always been about heroes and villains. But the similarities don’t stop there. There are a lot of Thors in Game of Thrones (the Free Folk leader Tormund). Meanwhile, there are a lot of Ebony Maws, the lieutenant and evangelist for Thanos, in Game of Thrones.

Ahead of Friday’s Game of Thrones panel at San Diego Comic-Con, and the digital release of Avengers: Endgame on July 30 (Blu-ray edition is out August 13), we’ve run down who every major Avengers character would be in Game of Thrones.

Would Tony Stark also be a Stark in Westeros? Is Melisandre the Red Witch like Scarlet Witch? Where does humble Hodor fit in all of this? We’re calling it Endgame of Thrones.

Black Widow is…

Arya Stark.

Two trained assassins and masters of disguise who have red in their ledgers.

Thor is…


Both are “supreme bros”: gregarious, friendly, flawed, loyal. They also like big axes and hammers.

Honorable mention: Robert Baratheon, also for his affinity for hammer-wielding.

Iron Man is…

Jaime Lannister.

Two flawed anti-heroes, each with a deeply satisfying redemptive arc that saw them die in the arms of the women they loved. Also: metal hands.

Captain America is…

Jon Snow.

This pair of patriotic boy scouts somehow survived death to become important heroes with weapons made of magic metal.

Bruce Banner is…

Samwell Tarly.

They’re the same: A brilliant but meek nerd who somehow still gets the girl despite his utter lack of game (which, come to think of it, is amazing game).

Hulk is…

The Mountain.

Mindless brutes, good at smashing.

Professor Hulk is…

The Hound.

The ideal blend of brains and brawn who would gladly share a taco with you. Despite a fearsome visage, he’s shockingly good with kids.

Hawkeye is…


These total smartasses are great with ranged weapons and totally comfortable working alone or with others.

Captain Marvel is…

Sansa Stark.

Maybe it’s the similarities between Dark Phoenix and Captain Marvel, but Sansa Stark is awesome and extremely powerful — even if she can’t fly or beat up Thanos.

Spider-Man is…


Small but powerful, and politely horny. Both are lads just trying to make friends and look cool doing it. Always gets the cool girl.

Nick Fury is…

Beric Dondarrion.

Wise leader. Only got one eye!

Loki is…


Chaotic neutral. A schemer always trying to get ahead. Won’t hesitate to pull a knife on you.

Pepper Potts is…

Catelyn Stark.

Matriarch who only fights when she absolutely must. Always tells her husband the right thing to do, but he doesn’t listen. Also: married a Stark.

Doctor Strange is…

Bran Stark.

Wizard man who broke his body, learned some magic, and now he talks weird. Loves fucking around with time magic.

Scarlet Witch is…

Daenerys Targaryen.

Passionate woman with fiery magic who will fight you, your mom, your kids, even your pets. She will literally burn everything you own if you cross her. All her siblings are dead.

Honorable mention: Red Witch Melisandre

Vision is…

Jaqen H’ghar.

Both are always uttering cryptic, weird things. They both change their clothes and their faces.

Ant-Man is…

Podrick Payne.

Wholesome, lovable dork who is surprisingly competent despite his weird personality.

Wasp is…

Lyanna Mormont.

“And though she be but little, she is fierce.”

Hank Pym is…

Archmaester Ebrose.

Brilliant but sometimes severe elder. A skeptical man of science who considers all the facts before taking action.

War Machine is…

Jorah Mormont.

Loyal, powerful soldier boy with a wide skill set who you want on your side.

Black Panther is…

Oberyn Martell.

Admirable member of the royalty from a far-off land. Everybody likes him. He’s probably the best one-on-one fighter around.

Falcon is…

Grey Worm.

Lifelong soldier who never asked for the spotlight but got it anyway. Late-bloomer. Loyal best friend.

Winter Soldier is…

Theon Greyjoy.

Damaged goods who’s missing some body parts, but he’s got amazing hair. Once he gets passed all the brainwashing, he’s a loyal friend who’ll totally march into battle for you.

Star-Lord is…

Daario Naharis.

Suave mercenary type who thinks he’s much cooler than he actually is. He’s constantly punching — and dating — above his weight class.

Rocket Raccoon is…

Davos Seaworth.

Smart tactician who’s no good in a straight-up fight, yet they’re still handy to keep around.

Groot is…


Powerful friend to have with a severely limited vocabulary. Will literally die for you at least once.

Gamora is…


Mysterious but powerful woman who never lets anybody get too close.

Nebula is…


A fierce woman with a surprisingly tender side. If you cross her, she’ll shoot you several times.

Valkyrie is…

Brienne of Tarth.

The most badass female gladiator in the universe who’s more of a knight than all of the male knights you know.

Drax is…

Khal Drogo.

Crazy, hot-tempered brawler who never backs down.

Ebony Maw is…


Disgraced lawful evil wielder of dark magic and a total sycophant, who, in the end, gets what he deserves.

Thanos is…

Cersei Lannister.

Megalomaniac who just wants to destroy the world but is totally down to cry over their loved ones.

Eitri is…

Tyrion Lannister
