King of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and the First Men
You can compare them in other areas too, but whom would you say is a better main hero?
Naruto simply he actually was a pretty effective and likeable underdog protagonist for most of Part 1. He (and the story as a whole) only turns to shit once it hyper focuses on Sasuke.
Deku has a couple of moments early on but generally is just kind of shit.
Izuku embodies a lot of what I consider Naruto's worst qualities as a protagonist while having none of the upside. Naruto had higher highs and much lower lows as a character for me throughout the story, but I'd still consider him the better protagonist. The gap between them isn't that big at this point imo.
I prefer to see Deku as a massive improvement on filler Naruto than a failed Naruto clone. But he doesn't measure up to canon Naruto.
Deku is a bit too over the top in the gags, like his emotional range needs a toned-down setting. Naruto had his highs and lows, but Kishi knew how to use silences, melancholy and occasionally could even make Naruto deadpan or stoic.
Deku's fights are less creative and tricky, and his purity makes him less compelling.
