The old "fake legs to make it look like you're riding something" has been a standard trick for costumes for as long as people have been pretending to dress up like cowboys to get free candy at the end of October, but we have rarely seen it better than the incredible Mario and Yoshi Puppet costume created by Oscar D. Garza!

8-Bit Comics: Your Favorite Super-Heroes Reimagined For the NES

8bitghostriderwm

When I was talking about the upcoming "Thor" game last week, I got around the lack of screenshots by whipping up my idealized 8-bit game for the God of Thunder. 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? So today, I'm playing with power as I imagine what a few great comics might look like if they had their roots in the 8-Bit Games of the NES era!

Ghost Rider x Excitebike
Batman: Knightfall x Super Mario

Cerebus x Legend of Zelda

Lex Luthor's Punch-Out!! (Featuring Superman)

Thor x Mega Man

Watchmen x Super Mario 3

Archie & Jughead's Burger Time

Uncanny X-Men x Final Fantasy

The Comic Book Hacks of ‘Super Mario Bros.’

digitalelfscreencapmario

If the release of Exploding Rabbit's amazing "Super Mario Crossover" reminded us of one thing, it's that the comic community's love of retro 8-bit action is still thriving thanks not only to nostalgia, but also a classic gaming design that resonates well past its perceived technological expiration date.
