Mash-up Marathon I

The week... does it start on Monday or Sunday? Let's say, for the sake of the following string of entries, that it starts on Sunday.

Have you ever noticed how some authors create their work based on the amalgamation of characters, situations, themes, etc.? Sometimes, it's necessary to sound like the voice of others so that you can find your own. Either way, to analyze the legacy that yore artists have left allows us to discover what we like the most, the longing that we keep ingrained in the deepest of ourselves.

The following string of entries possesses a bit of that truth within it. Each iteration has a mixture of elements, within a unique genre: drawing. So, without subsequent preamble, the piece that starts the marathon:

Mushroom League: Bowsied Ascends

Super... Superwho?

Bear with me. Bowser is Darkseid for... some reason, so the (Justice) Mushroom League has to stop him. Mario is Batman -obviously because Batman is awesome -and Luigi is Green Lantern. Peach (or Toadstool, if you, like me, enjoy Super Mario RPG) is Wonder Woman. Yoshi is J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter, and Toad the Mushroom is Superman because, even though I don't dislike the 'shroom, Superman sucks.
