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

Hellboy x Castlevania

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.

With that enthusiasm in mind, we've taken a look at a few c

SUPER MARIO CROSSOVER Is The Game We’ve Been Wanting For 20 Years

smbc01

Growing up as a video game fan, I often found myself frustrated by the games of the NES era, which were made back when designers saw impossible difficulty as giving players their money's worth. I can vividly remember wishing games were more like comics, existing in a shared universe where Mega Man could just drop by the Mushroom Kingdom to blow Koopa Troopas away with his arm cannon, or that Mario could grab the Spread Gun from "Contra" to make things a little easier on himself

So, while I sit and at
