Ronda Rousey to the rescue! In case you haven't heard, the UFC women's bantamweight champion participated in a Reddit AMA last week and confessed that she'd love to join the Marvel Universe.

When asked which Marvel character she'd love to play, Rousey, 28, replied, "A lot of the good ones have been taken, but I'd like to vie for Miss Marvel." Strong choice, as the Captain Marvel movie—the studio's first female-led superhero movie—has already been set for a November 2018 release.

Well, ask and you shall receive! Rousey's fans became so enamored with the idea of seeing the ESPY Award-winning athlete in Captain Marvel's Americana-colored costume that they took to the drawing boards—literally—and began to illustrate just what their hero would look like in character.

The results, shared via Instagram, are some of the coolest pictures you've seen in a minute. Scroll down to see the budding actress, who boasts supporting roles in Expendables 3 and Entourage, as the kick-ass leader.
