There's a reason Scorpion can fight Superman in "Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe," but game's scribe (and veteran comic author) Jimmy Palmiotti says it doesn't really matter.
"Why is that guy fighting that guy?" said Palmiotti during a brief interview at Comic-Con. "Well, ha! Why? Because it's fun, that's why."
Comic fans up in arms about the unrealistic nature of the fighting mash-ups weren't the only ones with concerns, though. When Palmiotti and fellow comics veteran Justin Gray were brought in to work with Midway and DC, they found the two sides didn't see eye-to-eye.
"The 'Mortal Kombat' people and the DC people were like 'No, no! You can't do that! Those guys don't meet, they're in different dimensions!' Blah blah blah!" he said. "We came in to fix that."
It hasn't yet been revealed what that fix is, however, as "Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe"'s storyline remains a secret. Palmiotti promised we'd learn the answers to everything as we get closer to the game's release.
