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?

aboyandhisblob

With the recent release of the reimagined "A Boy and his Blob" on the Nintendo Wii, I found myself reflecting on the original 1989 NES title's horrendous awesome box art.

Although most probably remember the game for its strange premise and relatively innovative gameplay (you feed a blob jellybeans to make it transform into a variety of usable items), what I like best is its old school comic book aesthetic. While most
