MultiVersus leak reveals Gremlin antagonist Stripe is coming to brawl

UPDATE: The screechy-voiced little glue sniffer has been officially confirmed.

UPDATE 16/08/22: Following its preemptive screen leak yesterday, Warner Bros. has officially confirmed that Black Adam and Stripe will be joining the MultiVersus roster this season.

In its words: "What's better than officially kicking off #MultiVersus Season 1? Announcing Black Adam and Stripe are also coming this season. You're welcome."

The original story continues below.

ORIGINAL 15/08/22: A new leak for Warner Bros.' brawler MultiVersus has revealed that both Stripe from Gremlins and DC's Black Adam will be joining the battle roster.

As revealed by _FireMonkey on Twitter, the twosome can be seen in the game's season one startup screen, which Warner Bros. set live a little too early. The company had originally said that upcoming fighters would be teased in MultiVersus' start up screen, but unfortunately the developer jumped the gun a bit on that one.

Superman and co show off their MultiVersus moves.

The duo will join the likes of current characters such as Bugs Bunny, Batman and Arya Stark. Meanwhile, Morty of Rick and Morty fame will be joining the fray on 23rd August.

While Black Adam's impending inclusion to the game makes sense - after all, his upcoming film starring The Rock makes this character a timely addition to the roster - Stripe is more of a surprise.

All the same, I am curious about what moves he will bring to the battle whenever he enters the fray.

In addition to this slip, another MultiVersus rumour doing the rounds is that a more in-depth story mode will be coming to the game. This has come to light after one dataminer came across references to it in the game's credits.

Meanwhile, ahead of the game's season one release today, the developer laid out some patch notes.

These reveal that several characters will be getting nerfed in the new season, with Bugs Bunny no longer being able to split into two rockets and LeBron's solo dunk will no longer spawn a shockwave on the ground.

Tom from Tom and Jerry is more than happy with this news...
