There was a time in my life where I had fifty Robot Masters and their weaknesses committed to memory in case I ever found myself separated from the stack of Nintendo Power magazines I'd set aside for reference, and I have lasting friendships to this day I made in elementary school based on the fact that I heard someone had Mega Man 2 so I could go over to his house and play it. So when Archie Comics kicked off their new Mega Man comic

And that got me thinking: What if they had converted my other favorite comics into 8-bit NES games -- or, in the case of Batman and the X-Men, what if the games they were in were actually good?
