Mortal Kombat X's companion comic book may have revealed one of the new characters that will join the fighting game's roster.

The character, named Erron Black, appears in issue #4 of the comics. Black looks like a Wild West gunslinger, with a wide-brimmed hat, ammo belts around his body, a gun holster, and poncho. He's also standing next to two character who are new to the Mortal Kombat series, D'vorah, and Kotak Khan, who introduced black as one of his deadliest warriors in the fight against Mileena, another character in the game.

Black's name, design, and introduction, make him a likely candidate to be one of the new fighters yet to be announced for the game. Mortal Kombat also has a history with gun-wielding characters, such Kurtis Stryker, who was first introduced in Mortal Kombat 3.

Earlier this week, developer NetherRealm Studios confirmed that Mortal Kombat X will not get a demo, and that we'll see another character revealed later this month.

Mortal Kombat X comes out on April 14 for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. Just recently, we learned about the game's four collector's editions and how the game's female characters will be more realistically proportioned.
