Black Adam and Stripe from Gremlins are seemingly heading to MultiVersus

In only a few short weeks, MultiVersus became a break-out hit partially because the roster is full of playable characters that wouldn’t typically be in fighting games. It seems that a couple more weirdos are joining the fray soon too.

Over the weekend, numerous people have been spotting an Xbox dashboard ad revealing that Black Adam and Stripe from Gremlins are coming to MultiVersus. Everyone knew that there would be more DC superheroes thrown into the mix, but ugly little monsters from 1980s creature features? Nobody saw that coming.

It’s worth mentioning that Black Adam doesn’t appear to be based on the upcoming Dwayne Johnson film but rather a comic iteration of the character. Stripe looks exactly like the 1984 movie iteration, though. Check out the screencaps below to see both.

Neither of these characters has been announced for MultiVersus, nor were they on prior upcoming release lists. While developer Player First Games and publisher Warner Bros. haven’t made an announcement on social media, the official word should drop fairly soon. There wouldn’t be advertisements if it were some sort of hoax! Plus, I sincerely doubt any Photoshop wizards would dream up adding Stripe, of all things.

After some delay hubbub, Season 1 of MultiVersus got an official release date of Aug. 15, 2022. Morty is coming later this month as well.
