Superman vs. Sub-Zero?

Banner: Support Extra Life @ Dungeon Masters Guild

Sub-Zero vs. Batman

Okay, this is one of those internet rumors that’s been kicking around forever, but it appears like it’s finally coming true: Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. The classic arcade beat-’em-up franchise is crossing over and going toe-to-toe with some of the world’s most recognizable and popular superheroes. Only a handful of characters have been announced. Superman and Batman will represent the DCU, while Sub-Zero and Scorpion will carry the banner for MK. However, with the extensive rosters on both sides, I’m sure we’ll see plenty more favorites included before it hits next-gen consoles this fall.

The fanboy in me wants to shower this idea with love and praise. Unfortunately, my realist side raises too many questions for me to embrace MKvDCU wholeheartedly. First and foremost, I find it difficult to believe that DC will sign off on having its characters involved in Mortal Kombat’s traditionally gory fighting style and trademark post match Fatalities finishing moves. We learned way back in the SNES/Genesis days that a Mortal Kombat game without blood is hardly a Kombat game at all. The teaser trailer is on the site is intriguing and gives me hope that they can pull this off.
