The Boys fans cleverly bring A-Train to MK1 ahead of Homelander

If you're a fan of The Boys, you don't have to wait till Homelander arrives with the first MK1 Kombat Pack. One player has already brought his A-game to fight.

Mortal Kombat 1 The Boys Homelander A-Train

NetherRealm Studios has never shied away from unbelievable crossover, and that trend continues with the release of Mortal Kombat 1. A complete universe reset for the long-running franchise, players can battle it out as pop-culture icons like DC Comics’ Peacemaker and The Boys’ Homelander. Well, you can’t fight as Homelander just yet, but there is a way to bring another character from the gory, gutsy TV show to MK1.

We’ll tell you right now, it isn’t The Deep, so put your scuba gear away. No, this cunning player-made creation brings the A-Train to Mortal Kombat 1 – by using some clever MK1 customization magic. The great part is that it isn’t that hard to achieve really, all you need to do is unlock a specific color palette, in this case representing A-Train’s bright blue visage.

While Homelander is undoubtedly the most known (and feared) character from The Boys, the A-Train is just as heinous when it comes to committing evil acts. While they are trying to make amends in later seasons, the character’s introduction is a vital reminder to look where you’re going when crossing the street.

The return of Darrius marks another character returning from the NetherRealm abyss, as they were last seen in Mortal Kombat Armageddon. Nitara, voiced by Transformer star Megan Fox, is another fighter that makes a return after years out of the spotlight. We wonder what other characters are overdue a return to the fold, as the next batch of MK1 Kombat Packs could yield some unexpected surprises.

If we’re talking about pop-culture characters, we’re still hopeful that Ed Boon can land John Wick in the future. Just imagine the sheer carnage and combos he could unleash. Include the pencil in as one of the many MK1 fatalities, and that’ll be the cherry on top. In terms of current characters, we’ve put together Mortal Kombat 1 Kameo tier list, which should sway your choices next time you enter the arena.
