Lost Kontent: Tobias Shares MKvDC Comic Art & MK4 Reptile

Digitized live-action graphics defined Mortal Kombat in its seminal incarnation, but many of the series' most iconic characters began life as design sketches by franchise co-creator John Tobias!

This weekend Tobias will discuss klassic digitized characters at San Diego Comic-Con [full story], but the talented artist also recently shared a mix of MK drawings from more recent eras! These include character sketches of Reptile and Liu Kang, as well as uncolored pencils from the official Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe comic book!

Editorial: The MKvsDC Crossover Nobody Sees Coming

It was the bombshell that rocked us in April 2008. Revealed in a Mortal Kombat Online exclusive: Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe turned the core fighting franchise on its head -- introducing MK's first all-out crossover with another franchise! It brought an end to then-rampant sequel speculation, and created an indelible link with the superheroes that starred in 2013's Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Six years on from that memorable first image [pictured top] - we are again anticipating what might be announced when a mystery countdown ends June 2nd. Sequel rumors persist for both Mortal Kombat and Injustice -- leading to speculation of overlapping, or simultaneous development cycles.

Always up for a lark: NetherRealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boon has thrown "Injustice Too" into the collective vernacular. The overseer of both MK and Injustice is probably just engaging in a little harmless subterfuge, but it alludes to a hypothetical outcome few have even dared to consider.

The next generation is changing the game and we think there's a concept that would make use of dual franchise development. An idea that would land Warner Brothers on the cutting edge of attempting to please everybody. Before we get to that, some history:

Europe Gets Uncensored Joker Fatality in Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe.

We reported earlier that the ESRB had forced Midway to tone down several of Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe's fatalities so that the game could receive a T rating (as presumably mandated by DC Comics and its parent company Warner Bros). On the other hand, Videogamer.com is reporting that the Joker's fatality, and probably others, will be uncensored in Europe, thanks to the different ratings system used there. From the article:

Midway Releases Boss Renders and Dev Blog Entryfrom MK vs DCU!

This afternoon, Midway released the renders for the final two characters from the upcoming Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe. These two are, of course, the two boss characters who eventually merge to become the final boss, Dark Kahn. Representing the MK side is the emperor of Outworld, Shao Kahn, looking pretty much the same as he has in previous incarnations. Representing the DC universe is the dread lord of Apokolips, Darkseid, looking very similar to his comic counterpart with a more muted color scheme. Both are shown with their respective throne rooms as their backgrounds.

Fatalities in Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe Get Toned Down

Kotaku is reporting that Midway is having to tone down several of the fatalities in Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe in order to secure a T rating from the ESRB. Kitana was one character whose fatality was changed in order to secure the rating. However, another character whose fatality was changed to secure the rating was the Joker's, and in fact it was his first fatality seen that got changed: the joke gun fatality. From the article:

Baraka & Lex Luthor Renders Released on WorldsCollide.com

Today two brand new renders have been released from the upcoming Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe. The renders released are of the Tarkatan brute Baraka, and genius arch-villain of Superman, Lex Luthor. Both characters stand, battle ready against chaotic backdrops. Baraka's outfit appears to have a stronger similarity to his Deception appearance, sans the bone detailing. While Lex Luthor is clad in his power suit, making him a formidable foe against Superman and the rest of the Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe line-up.

Midway Releases Deathstroke Render from Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe!

The folks over at Midway have released another render from the upcoming Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe! This time, the render is of one-eyed master assassin/mercenary Deathstroke! While Deathstroke is a long-time DC Universe supervillain, he has been relatively obscure to non-comics fans until recently, when he appeared as the main villain in the Teen Titans cartoon series. However, in the animated series, he went by his character's first name of Slade. Only the high-resolution version is currently known to be available.
