Omniman from Invincible, Peacekeeper from DC’s Peacekeeper and Suicide Squad, and Homelander from The Boys have been confirmed to be DLC characters in the upcoming Mortal Kombat 1.

Omniman

Omniman is a character from Amazon’s original Invincible. In summary, Omniman is the father of the show’s main character. He is of an alien race called the Viltrumites; with powers that include flight, invulnerability, enhanced healing factor, super endurance, strength, and speed. Having him join the MK1 roster would be fun to see how the universe decides to nerf his almost immortality.

Peacemaker

Peacemaker is a DC character that just finished his show “Peacemaker”, and movie debut in Suicide Squad. Peacemaker is a great pick for the Mortal Kombat universe because his powers line up with a lot of the human roster. His powers or skills include; being at the peak of human strength, stamina, and reflexes, expert in hand-to-hand combat, and weaponry, skilled marksman, and being a skilled pianist.

Peacemaker is going to be a fun addition to the roster and with hope an opportunity to add more DC characters.

Homelander

The Boys has been a blast and a great adaptation brought to life with the help of Amazon Studios. Homelander is the antagonist of the show and is a spoof of Superman. His powers include superhuman speed, strength, durability, flight, and laser sight.

Homelander will have the same problem to work around as Omniman, being they are both eventually immortal to the power scaling in the Mortal Kombat universe.

Honorable Mentions of Who I Want as DLC

Pyramid Head

Pyramid Head is the famous character that first appeared in Silent Hill 2. He is a character that rivals or joins the rankings of all the legendary monsters such as Chucky, Jason, and Freddie Krueger. On-screen every time Pyramid Head shows up the player would feel the dread and hopelessness that follows the monster. Pyramid Head is simple in skill set, he has a great sword and a spear. I believe that giving the Mortal Kombat team this character we could see some really fun mechanics with the character.

Issac Clark

Issac Clark is the protagonist of the series, Dead Space. Dead Space recently getting a remaster gives Issac Clark relevance back in the horror genre. Issac is a normal human with no superhuman ability but makes that up with other skills he’s gained through the Dead Space Series. He has experience with quickly dismantling his enemy, he has a degree of marksmanship and weapon mastery, and his suit is equipped with stasis, Kinesis, and a level of armor that the suit has.

Guts from Berserk

With the popularity of anime at an all-time high I believe that adding an anime character would be something to be remembered. Guts is not a stranger to the blood and gore that Mortal Kombat loves to include. And with the new combat system in Mortal Kombat 1 Guts would be the perfect DLC character in my opinion. You can give Guts 3 fighting types; his golden age, black swordsman age, and his berserker armor.
