Mortal Kombat 1 provides Invincible’s Omni-Man – and JK Simmons – to its roster of DLC comedian e book characters

Mortal Kombat 1 is fielding a fairly star-studded forged for its DLC, with JK Simmons set to reprise his position as Omni-Man from the Invincible animated collection. Simmons’ onscreen portrayal of the comedian e book character joins John Cena’s DC Komics anti-hero Peacemaker and Antony Starr as The Boys’ Homelander, together with some returning Mortal Kombat faces, within the combating recreation’s Kombat Pack.

The Mortal Kombat 1 Kombat Pack reveal trailer launched throughout final week’s Komic Kon in San Diego reveals a realistically rendered model of Omni-Man – in a manner that actually jogged my memory a little bit of these creepy ultra-realistic Mario designs – flanked by Peacemaker and Homelander, in addition to Mortal Kombat stalwarts Quan-Chi, Ermac and Takeda.

Whereas not one of the revealed characters utter a phrase within the trailer, Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon confirmed Simmons could be returning to voice Omni-Man.

For these unfamiliar with Invincible, the collection started as a komic by The Strolling Useless ko-creator Robert Kirkman. Drawing on the likes of Superman – of whom Omni-Man is a reasonably specific pastiche – the komic is half loving homage to Golden/Silver Age komics and half darkish satire thereof, filled with gore, gore and violence. The komic is being tailored into an animated collection by Amazon in 2021, with a second season presently within the works for launch in November.

Along with the Kombat Pack additions, Boon previewed one other trailer for Mortal Kombat 1 which revealed that MK klassics Li Mei – who was final playable correctly in 2006’s Mortal Kombat: Armageddon – Tanya and longtime favourite Baraka would even be heading to MK1.

Boon informed IGN that Baraka and Mileena would see a lore overhaul concerning their pointy tooth, which within the rebooted Mortal Kombat 1 universe are actually shaped from a illness known as Tarkat, moderately than immediately brought on by being members of the Tarkatan species.

Mortal Kombat 1 will launch on September 19 through Steam and Epic, with Simmons, Cena and Starr becoming a member of Jean-Claude Van Damme as Johnny Cage in his expanded roster of characters you may beat the bejeezus from.
