It's no secret that when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were revealed for Injustice 2's Fighter Pack 3 that it surprised the masses. Boon himself said on twitter that he couldn't believe that the Turtles didn't leak. Everyone had been guessing it would be Spawn or other characters... no one suspected the four Turtles. On top of that, the Fighter Pack 3 reveal video on the Injustice YouTube channel has the most views by 3.1 Million.

It's been quiet for a while now with the release of Enchantress cooling down and everyone clearly waiting on a Turtles gameplay trailer and a WatchTower stream by @tylerlansdown. However, one thing at a time.

Boon took to twitter today to tease

Ever since Injustice 2 released, there's been one question on everyone's mind: can Sub-Zero beat Black Adam? Before you question the validity of that statement, two players have taken to answering it themselves: Noble Raptor's Sub-Zero went up against F3 Gross' Black Adam in a not so serious FT10 on Raptor's Youtube.

The first Mortal Kombat movie remains a beloved staple of the franchise: it served some of us as our first introduction to Mortal Kombat in general and consistently comes in at the top of lists of the greatest video game movies ever made.

There's a whole lot to love about the MK movie, from the excellent fight scenes and art design to the brilliant portrayals of Shang Tsung and Goro, but it's hard not to come away from the movie with the distinct impression that the highlight is Christopher Lambert's portrayal of the Thunder God, Lord Raiden.

Given much more importance in the story of the movie than he had been given in official MK canon up to that date, the success of the movie and Lambert's portrayal was a key factor in elevating Raiden to series mainstay, to the point where many fans view him as part of the 'Trinity' that will never be...

If there is one thing the NRS scene can agree on, it's how damn hype Bane is to watch at high level. And if there is any one person to count on for high level Bane play, it's Biohazard. Over on his brother's Youtube channel, he's given us more of that Bane game play in an exhibition match against Doctor Stabs' Firestorm. If you wanted to see how quickly a health bar can vanish in this game, this is the set you want to watch. Continue...

Remember the Joker? He's gone through some big changes since the start of the game, with a lot of his combos looking really different on paper since the input for his teeth changed to DD3. With that in mind, Noble Raptor has done what he's done best and put together a fresh combo guide for the Clown Prince of Crime complete with notations on screen as he does them. Continue...

There's been a lot of really amazing Elseworld/multiverse stories in comic books and DC does them arguably better than anybody. With some of comics most iconic characters to choose from and with decades of potential jumping off points, it really shouldn't come as a surprise to anybody that DC have some of the most famous, and infamous, 'what-if-stories', from Kingdom Come to Red Son to Gotham by Gaslight.

Ed Boon has been on a bit of a nostalgia kick lately. Between the MK3 patch notes he recently shared and this sketch he uploaded, we've been getting an interesting peek into the early days of Mortal Kombat. What you are seeing here is an original drawing and backstory done by John Tobias. From the caption on Twitter, this appears to be an early concept for the character we've come to know and love as Liu Kang. Continue...

And if the debut of this series is anything to go by, it promises to be a firm favourite of anyone with even a passing interest in the competitive side of MK. The first game they break down is the progenitor of competitive MK, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Continue......

Hellooo my beautiful Catwomen (please don't lynch me <3), and welcome all other TYM brethren! Today I bring you a very special treat - a detailed look at the magnificent wonders of Catwoman's hitbox! As a Selina main, I've had some incredibly strange things happen in matches; Both while playing with, and against her. So I decided to take an in depth look at these situations to create a chart specifying which normals and specials she can exploit using her hitbox, as well as which of her tools she can use to do so. And I personally thought the results were incredibly interesting so I thought I should share. Before you read the list, a few things to note - Continue...
