Long before Naruto and Dragonball there was a classic anime I am still a big fan of it. Captain Future from Toei Animation, who came first out in the 80´s in Germany. So I had the idea these days of a crossover drawing Naruto being Captain Future. First reason: He was often shown as a read head cause of Kushina, and CF was a red haried man too. And he lost his parents at very young age too. Then I remember a sketch I did years ago and I still did not know how to finish it. So I made Naruto as a Space Ninja known only by the most as "Captain Future". I hope the explanations are good to read. Minato, Narutos Father was in my version a scientist as was Kushina and they worked on a space station. They had only an old colleague named Shikaku and his little son Shikamaru with them. They created the android Lee-and build Mecha-Jiraiya, in memory of Minatos old sensei, who died on Planet Ame on a Mission long ago.
One day a masked man attacked the space station to capture Kushina the Jinchuriki who has given birth a week ago and who still has a weakend seal. Minato helped mother and child to escape with Lee and Mecha -jiraya and with young Shikamaru. The fathers died when the space station was destroyed in the process.
The rescue ship crashed on the moon of Planet Konoha near an old abandoned moon base. Kushina died when she shielded her son from the impact and with her last strength she was able to seal the Kyuubi into Naruto before he could break out of her and destroy the entire moon and other planets.
Naruto was raised and trained in Ninja arts and Sience by Lee, Shikamaru and Mecha-Jiraiya, together they build the old base in Kaguyas crate of the Konoha moon. And after Naruto was told what happend to his parents he swore that he will fight against all the evil and he named himself Captain Future from then.
Those who know the anime or the oringinal novels from Edmont Hamilton know what I am telling.
Sorry for the crappy coloring,
