Mortal Kombat 1's Sub-Zero and Scorpion Complete their Journey

Mortal Kombat 1: Scorpion and Sub-Zero Take Center Stage with an Unexpected Twist!

The Mortal Kombat series has been keeping us on our toes, and Mortal Kombat 1 is no exception. As we eagerly await its release, one thing that has caught the attention of the community is the revamped universe created by Liu Kang. The entire cast of kombatants has undergone some major alterations to their origin stories, including the iconic duo of Scorpion and Sub-Zero, whose rivalry has defined the franchise for years.

The Iconic Feud: Scorpion vs Sub-Zero

Scorpion and Sub-Zero, the undisputed faces of Mortal Kombat, have come a long way since their humble beginnings as ninja palette swaps with different abilities. They have evolved into unique characters with their own names – Hanzo Hasashi and Kuai Liang, respectively. However, Mortal Kombat 1 flips this premise upside down, giving us a fresh take on their relationship.

Once mortal enemies, Scorpion and Sub-Zero have put their differences aside and become… brothers! In this new timeline, Scorpion’s true name is revealed to be Kuai Liang, while Sub-Zero returns as Bi-Han. This unexpected twist has sparked controversy among fans, but it sets the stage for an exciting new narrative.

A Surprising Unity and Unlikely Bonds

While we may have expected another clash between Sub-Zero and Scorpion, Mortal Kombat 1 throws us a curveball. Hanzo Hasashi, once the embodiment of Scorpion, seems to have been removed entirely from the equation. Instead, Kuai Liang has taken up the mantle of Scorpion, revealing a unique and unexpected path for the character.

But that’s not all! Alongside their newfound brotherhood, Scorpion and Sub-Zero have formed a close bond with another Lin Kuei member, Smoke. Despite not being related by blood, Smoke is considered a brother by both of them. This unexpected inversion of roles adds an intriguing dynamic to the story.

The Journey Continues

As the Mortal Kombat tournament approaches, the future of the Lin Kuei hangs in the balance. With Bi-Han’s return as Sub-Zero and his quest for power as the Grandmaster of the clan, will the unity between the ninja brothers and Smoke prevail, or will conflicts arise once again? Only time will tell.

No matter what happens, one thing is clear: Scorpion and Sub-Zero’s relationship has evolved far beyond its origins of bitter rivalry. Mortal Kombat 1 promises to take us on an exhilarating journey filled with unexpected twists, fierce battles, and a bond between brothers that defies all odds.

Mortal Kombat 1 is set to launch on September 19 for PC, PS5, Switch, and Xbox Series X/S.
