Every now and then, we’re reminded that Spawn is still a thing that exists and is regularly published by Image. Despite the fact that Todd McFarlane is too busy making toys these days to do much with the comic book, it’s still in print, and he still owns the rights to the character. He may even be using that ’90s cred to get Spawn into Mortal Kombat X.

We’ll give you a minute to get that image out of your head. Good? Okay.
Anyway, it seems up in the air as to whether NetherRealm will actually do this, but they’re definitely considering it. If it comes together, we hope they make a point of bringing back the ultimate ’90s jam, as well:
