NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Games have officially revealed the arrival of Invincible‘s Omni-Man in Mortal Kombat 1, the first special guest crossover character for the newly-released fighting game. Omni-Man joins the battle sometime in November 2023.

He’s purchasable as a standalone character, but is also included in the special Kombat Pack, which includes three new playable crossover guests – Omni-Man, Homelander from The Boys, and Peacemaker from The Suicide Squad / DC’s Peacemaker – as well as returning fighters Quan Chi, Ermac, and Takeda Takahashi, and other surprises.

Every guest character in Mortal Kombat 1 will feature the likeness and voice of their original counterparts, and that extends to Omni-Man. As in Amazon’s animated Invincible adaptation, the villain will be played by J.K. Simmons, with even his newly-designed appearance sharing a resemblance to the veteran actor.

Notably, the video also reveals another Kameo Fighter coming to game in November: Tremor, an Earth Elemental who deploys rock-based attacks.
