The Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe video game gives us a peek at the Gotham fighting rings where our DC superheroes will battle the gang of Mortal Kombat. Fans have been debating whether or not this game will be worth playing if the creators keep it PG and leave out the infamous Mortal Kombat fatalities. But now MK creator Ed Boon has explained that the MK characters will all keep their fatalities but the DC characters will instead have "brutalities." Click on for a closer look at the game's version of Gotham and a gallery of new character art for Sub-Zero and Batman.

Ed Boon tells Ripten, "All of the MK characters and all of the DC villains will have fatalities. The DC heroes who don't kill that often will have brutalities that will function just like fatalities but don't actually kill the opponent." Boo, that's just awful. Was there any other reason to want to play this game other than to watch Superman rip out his opponent's spine? Sure spine-ripping may not be in Superman's wheelhouse, but what's the point of teaming up with Mortal Kombat if there will be no mortal combat for half of the characters? [World's Collide and Ripten]
