United Kingdom-based designer Rob Lafratta created a series of gamer-inspired illustrations that combine superheroes and Mario Brother characters. The series titled 'Really Super Mario vs. Really Super Wario' solidifies the mashup between video game and comic book characters.

The idea for this gamer-inspired series is a play on heroes and villains. Each superhero is known for fighting evil characters, just as Super Mario has Wario as a nemesis. The images display a hybrid combination of a hero and Mario Brother hybrid next to a villain and Wario hybrid.

Each hero is recognized through the superhero color scheme with the iconic Mario Brothers moustache. The images essentially present Mario Brothers dressed up like heroes and visa versa for Wario characters. The illustrations use comic book characters such as Superman, Batman and Captain America.
