Buying the Kombat Pack? Check out Omni-Man’s moves first

Omni-Man and Tremor are set to show their most brutal selves to challengers in Mortal Kombat 1, and a new trailer shows off the deadly moves of its first DLC characters.

The Mortal Kombat franchise is reputed to be one of the best fighting games ever to grace the screens of loyal gamers and sometimes, it’s tough to deliver a proper dose of gory, bone-crushing entertainment with guest characters. That’s not the case with Omni-Man. A gameplay trailer shown at New York Comic Con reveals the character’s full, horrific fatality scenes and moves that are pulled directly from the episodes and pages of Invincible.

As the first DLC character of the Mortal Kombat 1 Kombat Pack, Omni-Man heralds the coming of fellow comic book crossover characters Peacemaker and Homelander as well as classic Mortal Kombat fighters like Quan Chi, Takeda, and Ermac. Here’s what Omni-Man and Tremor are capable of, and what they bring that’s unique.

What are Omni-Man and Tremor’s moves and abilities in Mortal Kombat 1?

Omni-Man has a move set flush with different teleportations while Tremor has a number of mid and long-range moves.

Omni-Man has a straightforward set of superhero powers, which plays out in the game with a variety of moves that see him teleport around enemies. Both big and small moments from the show are adapted to the game. The most obvious example sees Omni-Man push his opponent through an entire subway train. This move is a reference to a scene in Invincible where he does this to his son during a prolonged, lopsided fight.

Kameo character Tremor gives his Mortal Kombat 1 partners extra projectile options. Tremor is shown pulling a massive boulder from the ground and hurling it at enemies, as well as blasting them with lava. He has a particularly gruesome move where he impales his opponent on a stalagmite and smashes them into the dirt with a boulder.

Will Omni-Man be good?

It’s unclear how strong Omni-Man will be in Mortal Kombat 1.

Naturally, the gameplay trailers from NetherRealm Studios so far suggest that its first post-release DLC character will be very powerful. Omni-Man boasts what looks to be a powerful aerial move set in a game that heavily emphasizes juggles, which is certainly to his advantage. From an aesthetic perspective, he looks, sounds, and plays exactly as fans of Invincible would expect.

Fans ultimately won’t know how good Omni-Man is from a tier list perspective until after he launches in the game. And of course, balance patches could see him move in and out of vogue in the game.
