The Mario series is ripe for comic ideas due to all the strangeness that occurs on a regular basis. One such example is the fact that characters who are enemies in one game might very well end up saving Mario’s bacon in another (such as in the Paper Mario series). Inevitably, worlds are going to collide.
Mario Kart (マリオカート) is a series of go-kart-style racing video games developed and published by Nintendo as a series of spin-offs from its trademark Super Mario series of video games. They are a part of the greater Mario franchise. The first in the series, Super Mario Kart, was launched in 1992 on the Super NES to critical and commercial success.
