Midway reveals MK vs. DC character list

Sonya and Shao Khan included.

Midway has revealed the 22 playable characters who will appear in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe later this year.

The most interesting of these we already know: Wonder Woman. But there are others new to us, such as Shao Khan, who shot to fame with hit song "Ain't Nobody" in the '80s. [Very droll. - Ed]

Originally, the names leaked from a list of Xbox 360 Achievements for MK vs. DC, which are awarded for pulling off expert combo moves as each of the fighters.

Goro, our favourite four-armed monster boss person, doesn't seem to feature. Still, there's hope he may pop up towards the end of the campaign and subsequently be unlockable somewhere down the line.

The list of Achievements can be found on Xbox360Achievements (spotted by Kotaku), funnily enough.

Here's that character roster:

  • Baraka
  • Batman
  • Catwoman
  • Darkseid
  • Deathstroke
  • Flash
  • Green Lantern
  • Jax
  • Joker
  • Kano
  • Kitana
  • Lex Luthor
  • Liu Kang
  • Raiden
  • Scorpion
  • Shang Tsung
  • Shao Khan
  • Shazam
  • Sonya
  • Sub Zero
  • Superman
  • Wonder Woman
