Alongside confirming a November 2023 release window, NetherRealm has revealed the first gameplay trailer for Invincible’s Omni-Man in Mortal Kombat 1 at NYCC 2023.
Omni-Man will be the first playable character in Mortal Kombat’s Kombat Pack 1 and will be available as a standalone fighter or as part of the Mortal Kombat 1 Premium Edition. The trailer is a brutal look at Omni-Man in action and shows that many of his moves were pulled straight from the Prime Video series.

During the reveal at Skybound’s 20th anniversary panel at NYCC, Robert Kirkman and Ed Boon shared that “every moment of Omni-Man in Mortal Kombat 1 is inspired by a piece of the show.”
Speaking of the show, Omni-Man also made an appearance in the Season 2 trailer for Invincible, in which Mark Grayson worries he may become too much like his father.
Omni-Man will arrive alongside the Kameo fighter Tremor, and is just the start of the pack that will also see the arrival of Quan Chi, Peacemaker, Ermac, Takeda Takahashi, and Homelander. There will also be such Kameo fighters as Ferra, Johnny Cage, Chameleon, and Mavado.
In our Mortal Kombat 1 review, we said, “The bone-crunching gameplay of Mortal Kombat 1 is some of the best the series has ever seen, thanks to the game-changing Kameo system. Netherrealm delivers a fantastic single-player story mode as well. However, the new Invasions mode is a grind and the online options feel dated.”
