I'm kinda annoyed with that too, especially when it's really not that hard to just transfer Scorpion to the other side (like Lobo), considering he's evil (at least according to his ending). But I guess they're just trying to balance the space for now, I hope they'll move her by the time the next DLC comes
Hate to sound like a broken record but Thegrax is right. Lobo was on the hero side at first and they switched him when Batgirl was released. Same with Scorpion. I'm pretty sure he was on the hero side until MM came around. So just wait until the next DLC comes out and she'll probably be moved.
It annoys me people say Scorpion is a villain because of a few quotes and his ending. I guess Raven is a villain because she calls the player a fool, talks about hell, darkness, and calls up her dad to take over the world.. sounds more like a villain than Scorps. Like the person above me, Scorpion is gonna stay as a hero.
Chillax guys... as I said... to each their own XD, so in the end it all comes back to you and how you think about him. And I'm not trying to be 'harsh', just stating out how I feel about him as in being entirely subjective, and nothing wrong about subjectivity right?
So is Batman, he's pretty far away from hero too: he is a masked vigilante whose main goal is vengeance (not unlike Scorpion). So saying that Scorpion should be on the villain side is just like saying Batman should be too.
yeeah but batman does it for everyone. scorpion would decapitate a puppy if it would get him to sub zero.and lobo destroyed the entirety of his own species and kills for money AND fun. juuust sayiinngg
personally i don't even think the side the character is on even matters. characters who are DC villains but not villains in the game's story are on the villain side and vice versa for the heroes. Harley and Lex Luthor weren't villains in the story but are on the villains side of character selection. the same could be said about Superman, Shazam, etc being on the hero side. Since Scorpion is neither good nor evil in Mortal Kombat it doesnt really matter which side he's on.
I agree with you, Username. While it's nice to be able to easily differentiate between the characters, it really doesn't matter at this point with sides. Yes, admittedly, I was an advocate for Scorpion's move, but with Zatanna on the "villains side" it just goes to show that anything can go with these DLC characters. Generally speaking, downloadable content is just extra paraphernalia that doesn't further the game's story, it just adds replay value to an already awesome game. Scorpion and Zatanna are just prime examples that show that since the DLC characters aren't all too pertinent to the game's story it really won't matter what side they're on regardless of their reputation.
I watched the most recent livestream and I'm not sure who started that whole rumor that "Zatanna and Scorpion will be moved" deal, but they never once acknowledged Zatanna's space on the roster. It's just speculation and wishful thinking that they'll be moved, it's not a fact. The only thing they mentioned was an upcoming balance patch. While that can be interpreted in a number of ways, I'm pretty sure they were only referring to patches for character nerfing/buffing, online bugs, etc. They never mentioned roster switching.
Unless we get official confirmation from Mr. Ed Boon and/or Reddit Insider leaks, I wouldn't expect Scorpion or Zatanna to be moved anytime soon.
I think most people expect them to be moved because other characters have been moved before. I can understand why they want it done, too. They want everyone who is canonically a hero on one side and canonically a villain on the other. so zatanna being moved is a possibilty. but with scorpion, he's a guest character. he's not from the DC universe, and in Mortal Kombat he is neutral. So that being said he's not exactly a hero or villain. so with SCORPION it seems irrelevant. But with Zatanna i can see why people want her moved.
That's very true on Zatanna's part. And yes, nowadays I've been pretty indifferent with Scorpion place. It is quite irrelevant. I just also feel too that because it's DLC it shouldn't matter too much as to where everyone is in regards to placement. But that's just me. :-)
Remember Martian Manhunter wasn't even on the poll and he was added. He wasn't on the poll because Boon KNEW he would win it by a landslide. that's also why Black Canary wasn't on it. So my money is on Red Hood and Black Canary instead of Static.
Black Canary would be obvious for the 7th DLC because there is 9 Batman characters and Red Hood would make 10 so No red hood plz Black Canary would be the best choice and I know I said no more Batman Characters but Poison Ivy would make the best choice for the 8th DLC just saying and Ive also been hearing Rumors of NetherRealm Changing Scorpion since Hes Quote "A Waste of Space" To Firestorm So Just Saying
why are people requesting heroes. i think there are going to be 2 dlc left and their going to be villains to even it out. i really wanted static but its too late. just give us 2 villains and no more dlc, well hopefully free stages DLC
If she's moved, it would be unbalanced, we would have two more people on one side then the other, so the only way to get her on the hero side would be for her to switch with somebody (most likely Scorpion, since he's more anti-hero than hero) but then, if they're going to do that, why didn't they do that in the first place? The way I see it, the only way Zatanna's going to be moved to the other side is if we get more DLC characters, and they are both villains
