Rumor Control: Jimmy Palmiotti Playable Character in ‘Mortal Kombat Versus DC Universe’
One of the podcasts I listen to on a regular basis is The Giant Bombcast, the podcast of the Giant Bomb videogame website. Because I’m a hybrid comic and game fan, I paid special attention when they discussed the final lineup for the upcoming Mortal Kombat Versus DC Universe fighting videogame.
(If you haven’t heard: Baraka, Batman, Catwoman, Darkseid, Deathstroke, Flash, Green Lantern, Jax, Joker, Kano, Kitana, Lex Luthor, Liu Kang, Raiden, Scorpion, Shang Tsung, Shao Khan, Shazam, Sonya, Sub Zero, Superman, Wonderwoman.)
But I almost swerved off the road when they said that there was a rumor that comic writer and inker Jimmy Palmiotti, who is helping to write the story of the game, might make a cameo. Fighting in the style of MK classic character Johnny Cage.
If true, I fully expect Jimmy to pull off Johnny’s crotch punch move.
But I got the story from the man himself.
[Laughs] It was a joke that Ed Boon made. Now I wonder if they have to add it? [Laughs]
