New York Comic-Con is underway and where better to reveal the first look at one of three comic book guest characters coming to Mortal Kombat 1? Viltrumite superman Omni-Man has dominated entire worlds and now he's taking on the gods & titans of MK1! Watch:
Omni-Man has gained mainstream recognition as a villain in the Amazon Prime animated series Invincible, but it was twenty years ago that he first debuted as Mark Grayson's super-hero father in the pages of the Image Comics series of the same name. The trailer arrives to celebrate the anniversary of Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker's original creation.
If multimedia crossovers aren't your thing -- watch closely and you'll also be treated to a preview of MK's first downloadable Kameo Fighter -- the elusive Black Dragon mercenary: Tremor!
Possessing super-human strength, speed, invulnerability, and flight -- Omni-Man is one of a generation of comic book bad guys inspired by DC's ultimate hero: Superman. He'll be joined by another, The Boys' Homelander, as well as morally grey DC aquisition Peacemaker.
His heroic facade was dropped in an early big twist when he murdered the Guardians of the Globe -- revealing his true nature as a violent and callous conqueror from the planet Viltrum! Can Fire God Liu Kang and the other kombatants possibly stop him? That's up to you if you purchase the downloadable character included with the MK1 Kombat Pack!
The Kombat Pack includes five new Kameo support characters, bringing Tremor back from obscurity after his first main series inclusion in Mortal Kombat X. The kameo design reprises a rocky skin texture beneath the klassic quilted "palette swap ninja" design, despite Tremor never actually appearing in that. A yellow-ish hue does recall his first appearance as a sub-boss in Mortal Kombat: Special Forces though.
