In case you hadn’t heard, a certain 90s comic book icon is imminently headed to Mortal Kombat 11.
We are, of course, talking about Todd McFarlane’s Spawn, who, since being showcased last week, has sent fans into a flurry of excitement. There are still a few days to go until the antihero is finally available in-game, however, so in order to help you pass the time, we’ve scoured social media for some of the best reactions to NetherRealm’s latest DLC character. Oh, and it’s worth mentioning that McFarlane himself has gotten in on the action, having labelled the developer’s take on his own creation as looking looking “pretty BADA$$”.
Check out his, as well as many, many others’ first reactions to the reveal below.

Competitive Mortal Kombat 11 player and current reigning champion SonicFox also provided his own two cents.

Some are blown away by the gorgeous intro and outro scenes seen at the beginning of every match featuring Spawn.
Can we talk about how these are Spawn's intro and victory screens and not FINE ART PAINTINGS

Others already consider the character to be the best any fighting game has ever seen.

Appreciation for Malebolgia’s cameo appearance certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed, either.

MORE FROM THE WEB
Keith David’s return to voice Spawn more than 20 years after last playing the role in HBO’s animated series has been met with thunderous applause.

I may not be a big fan of MK anymore but if that's Keith David I'm hearing as Spawn I'll heavily consider buying the game. From The Arbiter to David Anderson, that man nails just about every role he's in. pic.twitter.com/ce3k3Ls00A
