Punch Planet's newest fighter, ARN-01D, has been revealed. It appears that this latest challenger is paying homage to the Terminator movie series as the actor Arnold Schwarzenegger is often associated with the cyborg assassin.

ARN-01D's first on-screen appearance paints it as fairly harmless as it looks like Star Wars' R2-D2 and only measures up to about Roy's knees while crouched down.

Superman was so broken he could literally win 2 rounds at the same time back in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

Who is the most broken fighting game character you can think of? There's a halfway decent chance they're still not at as overpowered as Superman was back in 2008's Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.

The Man of Steel is known for being too OP as a general rule as he is famously known for being so powerful that it becomes challenging for writers to keep him interesting, and that theme manifested very clearly in MK vs. DCU as he was actually able to win two rounds at the same time.
