Superman may be part of NetherRealm’s Injustice franchise, but they won’t be able to bring a hero like him into a game like Mortal Kombat. However, they do have the next best thing thanks to the Invincible franchise from Amazon Prime Video.
Check out the first look at Omni-Man voiced by J.K. Simmons:
The realms will tremble under the weight of the Viltrum Empire. Omni-Man approaches our timeline.
Anyone who’s seen Invincible will know that a lot of Omni-Man’s moves are drawn from scenes from the series; from him holding up a person to run through a train, to him squeezing a head open till it explodes. They even have him punching someone relentlessly to the ground—like he does with Invincible in the show.
I doubt they added the “Think, Mark, think!” meme to it though.
Besides the scenes from the show, we should expect Omni-Man to play just like Superman, what with his flight abilities and speed. It’s just a question of how the game is going to differentiate him from another upcoming hero Homelander (The Boys) who essentially has the same ‘evil Superman’ schtick. I guess the main difference is that Omni-Man actually is fighting for something other than himself, while Homelander is a crazy sociopath.
Omni-Man is expected to launch with the incoming Kombat Pack which is set to come out this November. Mortal Kombat 1 is now available for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
