I imagine the comments for this comic will be an exciting adventure, so let’s get some stuff out of the way first.

Mortal Kombat X including a gay character is pretty cool, and yes, the inclusion is “news,” as playable gay characters are still outnumbered by Unicorns in the gaming world. The fact the “reveal” (probably the wrong word, as it’s a subtle character moment) has been handled with class both in the game and outside of it, is a feather in NetherRealm’s cap.

I don’t think the character is technically the first gay fighting game character, as I distinctly recall a Street Fighter ending screen that heavily implies Zangief likes to wrestle bears, if you catch my drift.

You can follow Grey and Cory on Twitter or you can watch them play videogames poorly on YouTube. Or both. All three. Whatever.
