Everything happens for the first time sometime. Storywise, Raiden need more fighters on his side, fans need Sub-Zero, so it's a win win.^
Since when did Raiden have the ability to resurrect people? He tried in MK and we got a lifeless killer zombie in Liu Kang.
Bottom line is that we absolutely have no clue, and its up to NRS to inform us of this. My guess is that they're going to pull an X-Men, but hopefully Vogel has come up with some good shit.
Wonder how they're going to explain this
My MK9 Soulnado separation theory comes to mind.
Bi-Han and Noob get separated in the Soulnado / he gets cleansed, either giving us Bi-Han and Noob or just Bi-Han Sub-Zero (which fans care more about).
Plus, is everyone all of the sudden just forgetting all of the history between Quan Chi, Shinnok and Bi-Han in MKM: SZ, which took place before MK1???
