Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe - The Villains Part 1

With all of the Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe news hitting the web this month I almost forgot to post the latest character designs for two of the four new villains unveiled last week, Baraka and Lex Luthor. I have never been a huge fan of Luthor’s green and purple armored suit, but I guess it’s a needed addition if the character is expected to perform hand to hand combat against the super powered heroes and villains of the Mortal Kombat and DC Comics universes.

On the other hand, I think Baraka looks awesome. He is as scary looking as ever and I absolutely love that toothy grin of his. I can’t wait to use those arm blades of his to cut up the opposition.

Unfortunately, there has still been no sighting of character renderings of either Shao Khan or Darkseid for next month’s video game release. The Blot for one is dying to know if Darkseid will be battling the minions of Outworld in his trademark bluish-grey skirt. More details to come as they become available.

One exciting bit of information I forgot to pass along last week is that Midway has finally announced an official release date for Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Fan's can expect to see the game on store shelves and available for purchase throughout North America on November 16th, 2008. So only a few more weeks until the carnage really starts!
