Genderbenders: 10 of the Best Cartoon Gender Swaps.

The internet gives us a chance to play with the characters pop culture gives us. We can change their gender and change their story to share with people all over the world. Fans have more influence on media than ever before, and artists are remixing everything from Disney to Mario.

Aladdin and Jasmine

This time Jasmine will show Aladdin the world. She is the one free from a cage and the arranged marriage. She's quick on her feet and street smart. Oh yeah, and she wont have to dance for Jafar like she did in the Disney original.

John Smith from Pocahontas

This Disney movie essentialized both gender and ethnicity, but once it was in the hands of remix artists, the characters were able to lead different lives.

Captain America

Captain America

Perhaps with enough remixes of this character, we wont picture only a white man as Captain America.

Lady Avengers

Lady Avengers

Just to make sure that the super hero world isn't cordoned off into one gender. Visual representations are great, and the internet gives artists a platform and audiences a choice.

Frozen

Frozen

Does a princess have to be a girl? Nah. Elsa Halloween costumes could have gone both ways this year.

Nightmare Before Christmas

She is the Pumpkin Queen of Halloween town. He watches from the window of his captors tower.

Nintendo

Nintendo

This time, the princess in distress is a boy and the hero of the game is this bright-eyed girl version of Mario.

Sonic the Hedgehog

It's her ring collecting adventure now. She's the animal rights activist of the game world, saving cute animals from exploitation by the evil Dr. Eggman.

Scooby Doo

Scooby Doo and Shaggy are the feminine protagonists in this swap version of the original.

Archie

Archie

Archie comics released a gender swap issue called "Archina". I think it would be great if both Betty and Veronica had other boys on the side besides Archie (who alternates between them both). That way, they have all the same options Archie does, instead of just focusing on him.
