With new installments in fighting game franchises, you probably want to stick to the returning characters first. New fighters are all well and good, of course, but if a fan hears their favorite didn't make the cut? You can imagine the nerdly whining on the Internet. There'd probably be a real-life Fatality or two.

Earlier this week we saw the return of everyone's favorite caustic kombatant, Reptile. There were claws and acid-snot projectiles and face-melty fatalities, and a good time was had by all. But that, as they'd probably say on Mean Girls given half a chance, was like so two days ago. It's time to move on and check out the latest addition to Mortal Kombat X.

So, welcome back, Ermac. Pull up a chair, or... y'know, pull off someone's asscheek and eat it, or whatever you crazy bastards of Mortal Kombat like to do.

This guy's a real oddity, beginning life as an urban legend/rumored glitch before becoming an official kombatant in his own right (first playable in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3). Since then, he's been using his psychokinetic powers to serve Shao Khan and generally wreck shit as only a demented soul-conglomeration can.

Both of which he's sure to be doing with style when Mortal Kombat X arrives on April 14. In the meantime, check him out in action against fellow fan favorite Sub-Zero below.
