Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe rated teen

So let's deliver another blow to the travesty that is Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Apparently, its going to be rated teen. In an interview with Gametrailers (see video below), game creator mentions (rather casually I might add) that the game will be rated teen as opposed to mature. What does this mean? Well, there will still be fatalities in the game, but picture them EXTREMELY watered down. Think Mortal Kombat on the SNES watered down, which of course had no blood (the Sega version had the blood code which I believe was A B A C A B B). On the one hand a teen rating makes sense, because you can't have Superman ripping Batman's head off (that would ruin the pristine image of the characters). But watered down fatalities is, for lack of better word, a fatality for the Mortal Kombat franchise. So what you're going to have are Mortal Kombat fans pissed off because the violence is neutered, and the DC Comics fans mad because the characters stay in character. Ah, good times.
