Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe announced for Fall 2008

Picture this: take a major fighting game franchise and team them up with a major comic book universe. Just think of it, the possibilities are endless. You could take some of the most bad-ass superheroes (and perhaps villains) from the comic book universe and pit them against your favorite video game fighters. Man, that would be so awesome. Wait, what year is it?

That's right, X-Men vs. Street Fighter came out over a decade ago. They even followed up with three more games featuring cast members from the Marvel and Capcom universes. Suddenly someone has decided that it would be a fresh new idea to combine DC comics and Mortal Kombat.

While the game could potentially be awesome, I'm quite skeptical that they will be able to pull it off. There are two reasons really, the game will not feature an "M" rating, nor will it have the trademark Fatalities of the Mortal Kombat series.  All I have to say is that Sub-Zero would so kick Batman's ass.
