Todd McFarlane Hints at Spawn’s Inclusion in Mortal Kombat X

Over the years, guest characters have become something of a tradition with NetherRealm Studios’ fighting games. Mortal Kombat 9 saw the inclusion of Freddie Krueger and Injustice: Gods Among Us featured studio mascot Scorpion.

In an interview with Gamer Fit Nation at Toy Fair 2015, comic creator Todd McFarlane stated that he has already given NetherRealm the green light to¬†include Spawn in their projects, including the upcoming Mortal Kombat X. While this isn’t definite proof the demonic hellspawn will appear in the title, the option is there if the developers want to use him.

Creative director Ed Boon has stated in the past that there’s a good chance their next fighter will include a guest character, lending a bit more credence to the possibility of Spawn’s inclusion.

Many of you will probably remember that the character does have a history with fighting games, having previously appeared as a playable character in the Xbox version Bandai Namco Games’ Soulcalibur II.

First introduced to the comic world in 1992, Spawn employs a number of powers in his arsenal, including super strength, flight, shapeshifting, and more. Should he enter into the world of Mortal Kombat, how do you think he would fare?

Mortal Kombat X is scheduled to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on April 14.
