NetherRealm gives us a proper look at Homelander in Mortal Kombat 1's latest DLC trailer, and somehow the fatalities aren't the grossest thing in it

I’ve long since become inured to Mortal Kombat’s grossout action. There are only so many ways to slice up a virtual human before it becomes passé, after all. But NetherRealm’s latest DLC trailer for Mortal Kombat 1, which gives us our first look at The Boys’ deeply disturbed superhero Homelander fighting in the game, has found a whole new way to disgust me.

The trailer sees Homelander doing battle with Liu Kang while showing off a few fatalities, including one where he burns through Liu Kang’s skull with his laser vision, and another where Homelander uppercuts Kang into the path of a cruising jet liner. Frankly, though, nothing unsettled me more than the trailer’s first few seconds, during which Homelander takes a big slurp of delicious, edifying milk from a baby bottle.
