Injustice: Gods Among Us stories

The Joker just straight up references Injustice during this newly revealed Mortal Kombat 11 mirror match introduction

The Joker played perhaps one of the most important roles in the story of Injustice having set in motion the chain of events that would lead to the rise of a ruthless Superman within part of the DC Universe — and now he's cracking jokes about it.

NetherRealm Studios has given us another glimpse at what The Joker has in store for us all when he drops in Mortal Kombat 11 next week by sharing one of the DC villain's pre-fight intros in a mirror match against another Joker.

D.C.'s Joker has historically been low tier in NetherRealm Studios fighting games, will he finally break the trend in Mortal Kombat 11?

Joker from the D.C. Universe will be releasing as a DLC fighter for Mortal Kombat on January 28. Please note that if you don't own the Kombat Pack, then you'll have to wait an additional week before getting the opportunity to play as him.

Although DLC combatants for NetherRealm Studios games have usually been fairly strong, history has actually not been very kind to the Joker. Throughout Joker's fighting game career, he has often been regarded as low tier. As a result, he tends to see very little in terms of competitive play.

December is upon us which means that there's only one month left in this entire decade that's been the biggest and most important eras in fighting game history. Today, the genre feels larger than ever before following the mostly quiet times of the 2000's before Street Fighter 4's release.

The gloves are coming off for the Joker in Mortal Kombat 11 — Let's speculate on how the Clown Prince of Crime will play as DLC

Along with the Terminator and Spawn, Joker has been revealed to be one of the three guest fighters in Mortal Kombat 11's Kombat Pack. Based on the Joker's tendencies, you can't help but think that the Joker belongs in the Mortal Kombat universe.

Although the Injustice series really pushed the limits as to what Joker was able to do against his opponents, we'll finally be able to see some truly gruesome sequences that he most likely wasn't allowed to do against the heroes of the DC Universe.

While we wait for January 28, 2020 (Joker's release date), let us speculate on how the Clown Prince of Crime will play in Mortal Kombat 11.

Seventeen-year-old digital artist knocks our socks off with these otherworldly fighting game character depictions

We first caught sight of Mizuri's art because Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon was impressed enough by it to retweet with a caption deeming it "Next level Amazing." He wasn't wrong.

The 17-year-old digital artist from Melbourne is a self-taught fount of artistic skill. While they don't stick solely to fighting game characters, they have plenty of pieces depicting roster members from franchises like Marvel vs. Capcom, Mortal Kombat, and Injustice.

Arya Stark as Scorpion, Dennis Smith Jr. as Sub-Zero, Pikachu as Raiden... BossLogic is at it again

We weren't in the least surprised to hear that Australian digital artist BossLogic has been involved in a collaboration with Marvel/Disney for some amazing Avengers: Endgame art, as we've seen his ridiculous talents more than a few times here on EventHubs before.

There's a scene in Shazam! where he plays Mortal Kombat, which was made by the guys that brought you Injustice, which featured Shazam...

From Suicide Squad to Aquaman to Bat Affleck and all the in-betweens, I haven't given much thought to seeing most of the modern DC superhero films. Given its comedic nature and more unique approach, there was about a 90% chance that I was going to go see Shazam!, and that percentage has now spiked up to 100.

Any superhero film that isn't afraid to take itself lightly actually calls for some pretty thoughtful writing, (unlike almost everything we've seen in recent DC films) and seeing a quick clip out of the upcoming film recently posted by NetherRealm Studios' Ed Boon has me sold that Shazam!'s writing room was a-thinkin'.

'We would love to make like a Marvel fighting game or a Marvel vs. D.C.' — Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon talked with Marvel about making a fighter

Marvel heroes and villains duking it out in fighting games isn't exactly a new concept. We've typically seen Capcom implement Marvel's characters in their "Marvel vs. Capcom" series.

Much to the disappointment of fans, there's never been an attempt at a "Marvel vs. D.C. Universe" type of fighting game. Still, Ed Boon's recent comments during Game Informer's 166 Rapid-Fire Questions session were certainly very interesting.
