Mother Superior Jumped The Gun
The Joker and Deathstroke both have Fatalities in which they shoot their opponent in the head with a pistol. Since Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe was destined to be rated "T for Teen", the ESRB would have none of this, despite that the same game features Jax shooting opponents to death with a machine gun, and The Joker and Deathstroke having non-fatal headshot moves at their disposal. Thus, the camera pans away from the opponent as the shot is fired in both characters' finishers in the North American versions of the game. The PAL versions, however, remain intact.
Poolstroke
Marvel Comics' Deadpool started out as sort of a pastiche of DC's Deathstroke the Terminator. Although Deadpool still retains both eyes, the two characters' costumes are similar, as are their names (Deathstroke is Slade Wilson and Deadpool is Wade Wilson), and professions (mercenary/assassin).

Although Deadpool has evolved into a different character personality and storywise, both companies continue to make references of the characters' similarities as inside jokes, including Deadpool using his medium-awareness to comment on it, as well as Deathstroke's Earth-3 counterpart being very similar to Deadpool in terms of personality and powers.
