3dspostmain

When Nintendo dropped its beefy DSi XL in 2010, I had high hopes that comics could flourish -- or at least make some headway -- on one of gaming's most iconic portable gaming platforms.

Feel free to debate this point, but you know how the 1993 live action Super Mario Bros. film ("This ain't no game!") tried to make everybody look all serious and ended up making most of the Mario-verse unrecognizable?

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?

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
