The lengthy look ahead to Invincible‘s return is lastly over, and given what we learn about Season 2 of the superhero comedian guide adaptation, it will be nicely well worth the wait. The brand new episodes aren’t the one factor that followers can stay up for, nevertheless, as November eighth will formally mark Omni-Man’s arrival within the online game Mortal Kombat 1. The ultra-powered villain appears like a pure match for the franchise, which is confirmed in full via the video under, which reveals two of Season 1’s most brutal moments are a part of the character’s moveset. Let’s simply say it is a good factor Mark is not one of many different playable characters.
Truthful warning to those that have but to look at Invincible Season 1 with their Amazon Prime subscription: there are some delicate spoilers forward. That is thanks largely to the Mortal Kombat workforce, who integrated two key moments from the present into Omni-Man’s Deadly Blow and his Fatality. Have a look under on the newest video of the character in motion and witness the true energy of a Viltrumite:
Whereas there’s nonetheless hope an Invincible film might occur alongside the Amazon collection, this can be the subsequent neatest thing to seeing him in live-action. Seeing Omni-Man in this sort of 3D animation completely brutalizing opponents is as unbelievable as I assumed it might be, and people knuckle-crunching callbacks to Season 1 are the icing on the cake. I anticipated to see the face-smashing scene labored into the Deadly Blows, because it’s essentially the most Mortal Kombat second that Omni-Man unleashed on his son Mark Grayson.
What took me unexpectedly, although, was the truth that Omni-Man’s Fatality is the horrifying subway scene, which remains to be burned into my reminiscence. As seen within the video above, the villain holds his feeble opponent up as a rushing subway practice hastens and splits round them, with Liu Kang’s physique (on this case) used to destroy the practice and kill everybody inside it. It is definitely sufficient to kill any non-Grayson characters in Mortal Kombat 1, in addition to being a horrifying second for followers to re-witness in a very new means.
As brutal as this Mortal Kombat 1 Fatality is, it is even worse in Invincible. Mark does not take almost as a lot bodily injury from the subway as a consequence of his half-Viltrumite genes from his father. However the psychological injury from seeing folks ripped aside whereas he is powerless to assist them did fairly a quantity on the hero, and was completely sickening to look at. I am unable to think about any of Omni-Man’s MK1 opponents will probably be so considerate in regards to the carnage.
Omni-Man is without doubt one of the baddest dudes on the Mortal Kombat 1 roster, although we’ll see if he holds that title in Invincible Season 2. The comedian collection has loads of baddies to tackle, although who is aware of how a lot of that can make it into the tailored collection. Creator Robert Kirkman has an thrilling plan for how one can adapt the remainder of the comedian, however to say it is fluid on what’s going to or will not make it in appears like an understatement. I assume we’ll simply have to attend and see what’s coming and chill and benefit from the return of one in every of Prime’s greatest authentic exhibits.
Invincible Season 2 Half 1 releases new episodes each Friday via November twenty fourth on Prime Video, and Half 2 will decide up in early 2024. Put together for all types of superhero awesomeness, and take a look at the Atom Eve spinoff episode presently obtainable proper now.
