As you can see from the tweets below, several players have posted videos showing the new promotional image that was briefly displayed front and centre on the Xbox Store. It clearly shows DC’s Black Adam, as well as Stripe (or Mohawk) from Gremlins.
FIRST LOOK AT BLACK ADAM & GIZMO IN MULTIVERSUS

This image certainly looks legit, with the two character designs being very much in-line with MultiVersus’ aesthetic. There’s also the fact that multiple videos of the image being live have been posted on Twitter.
At the time of writing, WB Games has not commented on the leak, but given just how many different sources there seem to be, it’s safe to say that these two characters are indeed coming to MultiVersus at some point in the future.
got it on my Xbox a little bit ago, here’s a vid of it (I was genuinely confused lmao) pic.twitter.com/NS78sknpvl

Black Adam and Stripe have yet to be officially revealed for MultiVersus, with the only two confirmed fighters on the way being Rick and Morty. Morty arrives August 23 as part of Season One. This new batch of content includes a fresh battle pass, new modes and more.
Not everything will launch at once however, with new content set to be released gradually. We currently do not have a release date for Rick, but do know he is arriving in Season One.
