Mortal Kombat:  Superman

Description

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe is a crossover fighting game on the playstation and xbox. The game contains characters from both the Mortal Kombat and the DC Universe (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman). The Mortal Kombat series is especially noted for its high levels of blood and gore, including, most notably, its traditional graphic fatalities (finishing moves). We placed comics in the comic shops mimicking fatalities on relevant DC comics.

I think they would've work better without the "fatality"

Really?

You don't think that Fatality being there ties the DC brand to the Mortal Kombat brand?

Like the game?

Maybe time to rethink your comment?

Maybe a little writing needs doing?

A little novella?

With characters, hmm?

And a nice plot twist, hmm?

You go focus on that, hmm?

Ok then.

Guest...pffft!

Oopsie... did someone pinch Munky's nuts?

What? Just because you're clearly a clown, don't bring that nonsense here. Go back to your corner and try and keep all that gibberish you think is funny to a minimum.

Your mother is still a lousy cunt, but she spawned you so that makes her a retarded cunt.

I can keep this up aaaaaaaaaaallllllllll day motherfucker. I'm bored and you're first.

Guest

eh? I can just imagine you bouncing about all excited in front of your computer. That's sweet. Keep going.

p.s
I know you're just on a placement, and have very little work to do but you need to try harder at that and less of this noise. You only show why you'll never amount to anything.

Me no send previous email. Other people also probably no like your comments about others' mom's, I guess. Careful what you say in open forum, could end up with Munky on your back.

Guest

So you're the Munky in this relationship? Cool.

I can only guess that you were part of the Vile Homophobic insults that were being thrown about recently, and now it seems that you don't like people talking about your mum eh?Why is that then? She finish you off when she caught you wanking when you were a kid and now nobody can talk about her? Ok then dude. Keep the rank bitch, she smells like shame and day old jiz anyway. Ha ha and some of it isn't mine! Ha ha ha

You are so right. Me is all sad. But that's because Munky no grow up. 'Cause when Munky grow up he go to Planet of the Apes. Me wish you well now, you go to page two. By the way, me is not a he, me is a she.

Alright then lady, you keep up the simple talk.

Appears you may not be one guests who enjoyed "hate speech" so much..

This doesn't highlight in any way the fact that guest commenting was a bad idea for this site in any way does it? We got into it because I automatically assumed you someone you weren't (so you say).

@ sonny: Sounds like u never preformed a fatality in Mortal kombat ... its okay im sure you a street fighter fan more than a Mortal Kombat one.

Love the concept, the "execution" is awesome too, excuse the pun, eventually when the game is released it would be nice to add a forth panel with the actual game so to boost the sales :p

Well done !

mr guest. I was mostly joking, what i meant by that was, Superman is a man of steel, how can scorpion cause a fatality, barring he doesnt have a boatload of kryptonite.

this one's the best. The rest dont really play up visually for me. Here's why.
You've introduced the fatality line into the comic realm. Graphically this is amazing with the ripped off head...Almost Hitchcock like, offscreen violence, where fatality symbolizes the violence being blocked out (violence off screen). Which is why the other 2 are letting me down. Slash marks? Bullethole? You've one upped them with the blacked out head. Bulletholes and slashes arent Fatal enough. MK is about severe decapitations, severe violence.

NERDS WILL GET IT.
