Takahashi created the manga Yu-Gi-Oh! in 1996 after fourteen years in the industry, which led to the creation of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game published by Konami. Originally intended as a one-shot in the manga's episodic introduction of new games, Shueisha –  publisher of the Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine –  received so many letters and fan-mail asking aboutthat Takahashi decided to extend it. And the rest is history. Takahashi has continued to supervise the creation of Yu-Gi-Oh! manga since the end of the original manga's run, but now he is returning to bring the Marvel Universe under its sway, and both writing and drawing the manga, and it will be in canon with the rest of the Marvel 616.
