Last year the metal community lost the great and charismatic musician Dave Brockie, better known as Oderus Urungus, the frontman of GWAR, to an accidental overdose in his home in Virginia. GWAR has battled on without their founding member, leaving blood and gore wherever they march. With that being said, who could be a better fit for a character for the next Mortal Kombat game?
Over the weekend fans created a petition for Netherrealm Studios, a branch of Warner Brothers Games, to create a downloadable character of Oderus Urungus as a playable character in the upcoming video game Mortal Kombat X.
It is most appropriate to have Oderus Urungus immortalized in the Mortal Kombat universe because of the gruesome and hilarious nature of GWAR. The band has always portrayed themselves as an “elite group of chaos warriors” who were banished to Earth for their “cosmic crimes.” After being reawakened by our planet’s pollution, they now dedicate themselves to the “destruction of the human race and the eradication of existence itself.” Netherrealm Studios should have no problem somehow tying in Oderus Urungus into the Mortal Kombat X storyline, along with his own special moves and (in)famous fatalities.
