Spawn is set to debut as part of the Kombat Pack.
In life, Al Simmons was a highly decorated assassin and soldier, serving in the US Marine Corps, then moving onto Secret Service and the CIA to eventually serve under Jason Wynn in the US Security Group that shadows over the other agencies.
However when he wished to retire from his line of work, Wynn had Al's partner kill him on his last mission. Due to his life as an assassin, Simmons was sent to Hell where he struck a deal with the demon lord Malebogia to lead the armies of Hell in exchange for seeing his wife Wanda again.
Sent back to Earth with a disfigured body and no memories of his past, Simmons however was deceived as five years had passed and Wanda remarried to his best friend Terry Fitzgerald and had a daughter named Cyan.
Al, under his new name Spawn, now fights the forces of Heaven and Hell, going up against various threats like the demonic clown Violator, sadistic pedophile Billy Kincaid and eventually both God and Satan themselves.

Powers and abilities
- Mortal Kombat 11: TBA
- Spawn is the first comic book character to appear in the series as a playable guest character.
- While many DC heroes and villains were playable in MKvsDCU, they were not guest characters as they were main characters for that game's roster, however Joker became a guest character in MK11 becoming the second comic book character to appear.
- Spawn is the second guest character in the series to not come from a horror franchise, rather he is a comic book anti-hero. The first was Kratos.
- Much like Kratos, Spawn also first appeared in Bandai Namco’s Soulcalibur games, prior to their second fighting game appearance in Mortal Kombat (in Spawn's case, first appearing in the Xbox version of Soulcalibur II and all versions of Soulcalibur II HD Online).
- In February 2015, Todd McFarlane granted Warner Bros. a limited window of permission to use Spawn in its games. In an interview in April 2015, Ed Boon revealed that Spawn had been discussed as a potential guest character early in development, but that he did not know McFarlane had made the offer until after Mortal Kombat X’s release. This ultimately led to Spawn's inclusion as the first announced guest character for Mortal Kombat 11.
- Spawn is voiced by Keith David who previously voiced the character in the 1997 HBO animated series Todd McFarlane's Spawn.
- Spawn was portrayed by Michael Jai White in the 1997 film of the same name.
