At the recent New York Comic Con, marking the twentieth anniversary of Invincible and The Walking Dead comics, Robert Kirkman introduced Omni-Man in the fighting game Mortal Kombat 1 to the public. In the gameplay video, the hero takes part in two battles that demonstrate amazing speed and superhuman strength.
The event, dedicated to the twentieth anniversary of the comics “Unbreakable” and “The Walking Dead”, became the venue for the presentation of a short gameplay video of the fighting game Mortal Kombat 1 from Warner Bros. Games. Actor JK Simmons, who voiced Omni-Man in the animated series Unbreakable, returned to the role in Mortal Kombat 1.
The Omni-Man character first appeared in Supreme: The Story of the Year by Alan Moore and Chris Sprouse before being developed by Kirkman and artist Cory Walker. Omni-Man, the father of Mark Grayson, the protagonist of the comic series Unbreakable, is a member of the Viltrumite race and works as a superhero on planet Earth. He can be found not only in the comic series “Invulnerable”, but also in “Supreme”, “Noble Causes” and “Dynamo 5”.
Mortal Kombat 1 features Omni-Man as a DLC character that must be purchased separately. The Kombat Pack DLC also includes other famous characters from the comics: Peacemaker from Unbreakable and Homelander from The Boys. Premium and Collector’s Edition buyers will get access to the character a week earlier than others starting in November.
