As gamers are inching closer and closer to the launch of “Mortal Kombat 12,” or “Mortal Kombat 1,” actually as the game is officially called, more juicy details are being revealed about what people can expect from the game. 

Among these is the official confirmation that Homelander of the hit comic book, “The Boys,” is coming to the game. We’re serious.

Homelander is the leader of The Seven, the strongest Supe anywhere in the world, and The Boys’ leader’s, Billy Butcher’s, archenemy. Homelander has the face of a movie star and a power of a god. His superpowers include flying, super hearing, super strength, and super durability. With his X-ray vision, he can also see through anything except for zinc. Plus, he can burn and cut through stuff by shooting a red beam of heat energy from his eyes. Sounds familiar? Sounds like Superman? Well, Homelander is actually the parody of Superman and Captain America.

He is one of the characters in “The Boys,” a superhero TV series screened on Amazon Prime Video. It is based on the popular comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. It tells the story of an eponymous team of vigilantes as they battle with superpowered individuals who abuse their superpowers.

The accidental announcement

Well, Homelander will be part of the upcoming “Mortal Kombat 1.” It has officially been confirmed by accident. Quite exciting – and interesting, right? 

Just a few days ago, it was revealed that Homelander, Starlight, and Black Noir are coming to “Call of Duty: Warzone.” They are already available in the “Season 4 Reloaded” update. 

This announcement happened on “The Boys’” TikTok account, which also, apparently, paved the way for the accidental announcement about Homelander’s inclusion in “Mortal Kombat 1.” Here’s what happened.

In the TikTok video announcing the “Call of Duty” crossover, someone asked whether there will be a possible collaboration with “Mortal Kombat” as well. Whether they wanted to say it or not, the official account responded, saying, “MK confirmed,” then followed this up by adding, “Homelader will be available at some point. That’s all we can say.”

What a collaboration.

Characters, plot

Last May, “Mortal Kombat 1” also unveiled the new characters in the game. These include Kitana, Kung Lao, Fire God Liu Kang, Mileena, Raiden, Scorpion, Shang Tsung, and Sub-Zero.

The new official trailer also revealed what gamers can expect from its story. It appears that the canon ending for the “Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath” expansion is the one wherein Liu Kang builds a new universe. In spite of Liu Kang eliminating Shang Tsung in that ending, nonetheless, the longtime villain of the game has somehow returned in “Mortal Kombat 1.”

“Mortal Kombat 1” launches this September 19th for PC, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox Series X.
