Many times, the television series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are criticized for their abuse of original characters when the original comics have thousands of minor characters that could work to fill those spots, so I'm gonna start a little project.

Characters from the comics, when adapted to live-action media, are substantially changed, but they share a series of common traits with their comic counterparts that make them identifiable. Therefore, I'd like to pose a question: which of these characters could have easily been the live-action counterpart of a character from the comics?

There is no need to change anything about the character (except the name) to transform him into a version of a comic character. Simply put, something like "If they had named this character as this one from the comics, it would have been a lot cooler". Some of the most notable examples would be Dottie Underwood being a version of Yelena Belova, or how people hoped, prior to her introduction, that Rosalind Price was a version of Abigail Brand.

I'm waiting for your comments!
