MultiVersus Is Already Making Fun Of Black Adam

Black Adam was just added to MultiVersus today, tying in with his big DCEU debut. However, someone at developer Player First Games has had some fun with his launch, referencing a meme that dunks on the film's less-than-stellar visuals.

A new player icon shows Black Adam flying through the air, with his face right up to the camera. While seemingly innocuous enough, it's a reference to a shot from the film that has been heavily ridiculed online. It's not clear if whoever added it was aware of this, but it's resulted in Twitter being flooded with posts mocking the movie for its (pretty numerous) shortcomings.

The icon was shared on Twitter yesterday by renowned MultiVersus leaker, Susie. Here, it was revealed that the icon will set you back 35,000 Gold, with the devs clearly aware that there will be a fair amount of interest in the dumb, purposely badly framed icon.

Unbelievably, this isn't even the most expensive player icon yet. One of Fred from Scooby Doo was priced at 50,000 Gold, making the Black Adam piss-take significantly cheaper. If there are enough players with this much Gold burning a hole in their pocket, then it's possible we'll see the icon everywhere in online matches. If not, please do not sacrifice too much of your spare time trying to unlock this. Please.

Despite the big price tag, it's wild to see a game that is meant to be promoting the Black Adam film seemingly make fun of its failures. That being said, it's safe to say Black Adam can afford to take the hit, as it's proven to be a win at the box office so far. It's generated $250 million globally, and has pretty high review scores with general audiences. Critics not so much, as the film sits at a 41 on Metacritic.
