Mortal Kombat 1 players and Invincible viewers were called yesterday by NetherRealm to get excited about the full character trailer for Omni-Man in the recent fighting game. With a few months since release, Mortal Kombat 1 is naturally losing steam in the hype race among other games, but if it’s up to NetherRealm, it won’t let the ball drop.


Using the clever strategy of releasing this trailer very close to the launch of the second season of Invincible, NetherRealm promotes marketing in exchange with the animated series since those who are excited about the game will watch the series and vice versa.

Invincible’s Omni-Man Full Character Trailer in Mortal Kombat 1 Shows Gameplay and Fatality

When it comes to the movements of the most brutal father in the history of superheroes in Mortal Kombat 1, all the blows highlight the character’s powers and his very violent techniques without holding back any punches against any opponent. Interestingly, Omni-Man’s movement and some attacks resemble the gameplay of characters like Superman and Supergirl in the Injustice games, also from NetherRealm.


Understandably, it would rely on this basis to recreate someone with similar powers; it remains to be seen whether, with the controller in hand, it will look more or less like gameplay recycling. Furthermore, it is worth remembering that Omni-Man will arrive in Mortal Kombat 1 within the Kombat Pack, which includes several other characters, invited or not, joining the cast of fighters for an extra price out of the players’ pockets, another NetherRealm practice already heavily criticized.

And within this Kombat Pack, there is Homelander from The Boys, who in turn also has the same superman-like powers. Since the announcement, fans have been wondering how he and Omni-Man would differ in terms of gameplay. Now that we know how the fight with the viltrumite works, we can only wait for glimpses of the next characters when they are eventually revealed. At the end of the video, we can see the probably most expected part: the fatality.

Using Kenshi as the poor guinea pig, Omni-Man recreates an iconic scene from Invincible where he holds his opponent against a subway coming at high speed, killing dozens of innocent victims and doing a lot of damage. In Mortal Kombat 1, unlike the series, the target of the attack does not fare as well as Mark Grayson and ends up falling apart in the hands of Omni-Man, which gives an even more violent air to the scene that, until then, we had only seen lively.


Finally, the video shows one of the Kameo Fighters’ short fatalities, which in the case of this video shows Tremor and his rocky attacks. Tremor is a minor character who first appeared in Mortal Kombat: Special Forces, then in the challenge tower of Mortal Kombat (2011), but only in the PS Vita versions, and was actually introduced in Mortal Kombat X as one of the DLC characters.

This time, Tremor is looking for another space in the cast as one of the new Kameo Fighters in Mortal Kombat 1.

Returning to Omni-Man and his companions Quan-Chi, Ermac, Homelander, Peacemaker, and Takeda from the first Kombat Pack, their arrival in Mortal Kombat 1 is scheduled for spring 2024. Until then, Omni-Man was the first to have its gameplay revealed to take advantage of the hype of the second season of the animation and others to come. Meanwhile, players will not stop rightly criticizing NetherRealm for its practice of overcharging for extra content.
