Injustice DLC: The History of Scorpion Featurette

06/08/2013 :: Posted at 01:26 PM by Mick-Lucifer
Jim Lee & Ed Boon Discuss Scorpion - the History & Injustice Arrival!

The ninja spectre Scorpion has made the leap from Mortal Kombat to Injustice: Gods Among Us [trailer]! To promote the release of the new downloadable character; DC Comics Publisher Jim Lee and NetherRealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boon discuss the secret origin of one of gaming's most iconic warriors!

Boon alludes the comic book influences that helped shape Mortal Kombat in its infancy, and the history the series has had with comics. Along with collectible issues released alongside Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat II; MK quickly featured in a range of licensed mini-series released by now defunct publisher: Malibu Comics!

Artist turned publisher Jim Lee comments on the suitability of the primary coloured ninja in the DC Universe. He designed the specially featured look of Injustice Scorpion, inspired by some of the most literal references in the characters' design history. The scorpion motif has become increasingly evident since NetherRealm designers (then-Midway) incorporated it into designs in Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe [read more].

Scorpion remains the doggedly determined ninja from Hell, whose lust for vengeance spurs him to pursue his enemies beyond death! While Quan Chi and Sub-Zero (Noob) may be more familiar nemeses; the pair of creators touch on the MKvsDC ninja rivalry of Batman versus Scorpion! If early indications are anything to go by, there could be a few battles with Aquaman in Scorpion's future, as well!

Scorpion is one of the sixty-four characters currently competing in our annual Supreme Mortal Kombat Champion tournament! Help us determine the true grand champ as we feature daily match-ups in our MKOmmunity User Poll! Register to join each debate on the forums and be eligible for prizes!
