SPOILER ALERT:Mortal Kombat X DIGITAL COMIC DISCUSSION

I don't think they changed his origins, because that in and of itself would also change Shao Kahn's origins and would just be a mess. I just think they're tying the Red Dragon to him. Like the Red Dragon discovered who he was, and then worshiped him. I don't think any of this implies that they created him or that he exists because of them.

Well, let's wait. Because, for me, just by the fact that they added Onaga on Red Dragon lore...eek.

The game (Kenshi's ending) works exactly with Armageddon's plot (when it comes to Taven/Daegon), even if they consider all of those events suspended/postponed/even cancelled.

IMO, it's a waste to put Outworld's Dragon King with the weak edenian Red Dragon, since their only cross was that Blaze thing.

To tell you the truth, I wouldn't mind if Daegon started looking for Onaga AFTER his original plans. But Goro said Onaga is part of the Red Dragon's lore...and Kittelsen mostly implied he may rewrite his origins.

As said before, let's wait. 99% of chances of me getting mad hahahah (as every expected idea in the comic), but...

I mean, the kamidogu being daggers in this timeline doesn't make sense either, nor does Shinnok's amulet being the genuine article or Mileena not being born until during MK2. It was a soft reboot technically, but they've hard rebooted a lot of stuff.

I think he put daggers because the One Being was split into the realms. I thought it was a clever idea, and the Kamidogu have never been revealed at all what they were. I don't think that's changing everything, he adapted.

About Mileena, well, NRS did that, not a third part. The original creators have their means to adapt, but someone that clearly had no exact contact with the source material and commited several mistakes...that's worrying.

What do you mean about the Amulet being genuine article? You mean the main object of the plot? Once again, the game is the voice of the creators, they know how to fit most things. Another thing I thought as clever, since the Amulet is one of the (if not the most important) object in MK lore, remembering it was center of many games (MKM:SZ- MK4, MK:DA-MK:D and MKX), probably having an important role in MK11 (Raiden).

The only complaint with the comic book story I have at the moment is the most obvious and bothering inconsistency so dar, that is the moment, motive and place where Ermac changes sides. We saw that in the game and the comics and they are very different situations.

I would love if that was the only one.

The inconsistencies of the comics show that they were written with bad research of the lore and, specially, lack of info from NRS to Kittelsen, so it created many situations that, in the game, we never see, but we should, since the comics came before.

They come from relations of Cassie/Jackie/Sonya with Erron Black and Outworlders, passing through incredbly absurd situations and relations, to Ermac's side. And now, for sure, Onaga.

And I don't think they are minor. It's almost the main plot of the comic for a very long time.

Unfortunately, instead of filling plot controversy, they wanted to create so much that they became irresponsible.

Even if someone ignores the whole MK plot, the comic is running away even from MKX itself.

The last time we had any canon comics, the story of the comics was written by John Tobias, who also wrote the story of the games. They should hand over the comics to John Vogel, and there! Problem solved. When the game's story writer and the comic's story writer are one in the same, those continuity issues we had between game and comic with MKX become non-existent.

ETHICS QUESTION:

Did Cyrax have the right (morally) to initiate the self-destruct sequence the would destroy himself and the other Cyber-ninja given that the possibility existed of having their humanity fully restored just as Kuai's had? (obvious trade-off being a trip to Netherrealm...)

Its heavily implied that Cyrax isn't dead. Those clones weren't human, just husks of flesh and steel. They had no humanity to restore.

All I'm really crossing my fingers is the fact tha Jade is alive or goes back to life so she can be DLC for MKX (very unlikely though) or be somehow playable for the next MK game!
