Comic-Con 08: Shazam, the Joker, and Green Lantern headed to MK vs. DC

At Midway’s panel today at Comic-Con, a slew of new characters were unveiled for Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe. On the DC side of things, the Joker, Shazam, Green Lantern were all announced. As for the Mortal Kombat characters, Kitana, Shang Tsung, and Liu Kang were confirmed as well. Unfortunately, no footage of these characters was specifically shown at the panel.

If new characters weren’t enough, a special comic by DC and a PS2 bundle were also announced. Details on the comic are a bit fuzzy, but according to GayGamer, it will be a tie-in to the game. The PS2 bundle will consist of the last three Mortal Kombat games released.

You can put all of the Batman villains in the game that you want, but I will still never get over the fact that Johnny Cage has yet to be announced, Midway. At this point, I’m begging you to care about my passion for the man with the split-punch. Think of all the redeeming value and laughs that go into punching Shazam in the nuts. Please.
