Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe - The Villains Part 2

Midway has finally released the character renderings of the Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe video game’s two biggest and baddest villains, Shao Kahn and Darkseid. MK’s Shao Kahn and DC’s Darkseid round out the video game’s 22 character roster and they definitely left the best for last. Shao Kahn looks exactly as I picture him, but I am interested in seeing how both he and Darkseid look compared to the other playable characters in the game. Specifically, are these two villains the same size or are they larger in stature than the other DC Comics and Mortal Kombat characters.

As for Darkseid, I’m a little torn as to my feelings concerning his Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe rendering. On the one hand I really like this “modern” take on the classic Kirby character and think his new uniform fits in really well with the Mortal Kombat universe. On the other hand, I was really hoping he’d be wearing and fighting in his traditional grayish blue skirt. Plus, he’s really not as thick and blocky as Darkseid traditionally looks. It seems like of all the DC Comics characters, Midway changed up Darkseid’s appearance the most and I’m more than a little surprised they did that. With that being said, the end result looks pretty sweet so I don’t have that much room to complain.
