Homelander, the character from the television series The Boys, is coming to Mortal Kombat 1.

Even before the official reveal of Mortal Kombat 1, there were rumors that Homelander would be in the first DLC pack for the game. In addition, Quan Chi, Omni Man, Ermac, Takeda, and Peacemaker were also reported as part of this DLC pack.

It has now been confirmed via the official TikTok account of the series that Homelander is indeed coming to the fighting game, although it is not known when or whether it is indeed a DLC character

Mortal Kombat 1 was announced earlier this year. Playable characters include Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Kung Lao, Kitana, Mileena, Johnny Cage and Shang Tsung. The game also features so-called ‘Kameo fighters’ who assist players during battles. Cross-play and cross-progression will be added sometime after the game’s release. In addition, the game contains rollback netcode.

The game will be released on September 19 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, Nintendo Switch and PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store). People who purchase the Premium or Kollector’s Edition will get access on September 14.
