I totally agree and your theory is awesome. The only problem is that in the end of MK9 when Raiden was fighting the revenants there was Sub-Zero as a cyborg, not as human.

Probably an oversight?

Otherwise Hanzo would be in netherrealm with his head ripped from his body.

He killed Motaro... EXACTLY if he blamed the Lin Kuei he would not of been calm and killed those two there and then, I'm saying I don't agree with your theory that he's only being calm and not attacking them because of a deal he made with Raiden about Bi-Han.

He killed Motaro to save Johnny's life, not the same situation at all. And are you forgetting that he wasn't going to kill Bi-Han until Quan Chi manipulated him into a blind rage? It's not unbelievable that he wouldn't kill Cyrax and Sektor at all.

If he thought that all Lin Kuei were responsible for his family's death I couldn't see him not killing Cyrax and Sektor asap.

TBH That intro dialogue may very well be story related, who knows what KL has done in the past 25 years maybe he did some shit like murder the Shirai-Ryu(if they even got more members other than those two) or some shit

Scorpion already reformed the Shirai Ryu in the comics, and they all got killed except for Scorpion and Takeda, by a demon possessed Forest Fox.
I don't think that Scorpion forms the Shirai Ryu again, for a 3rd time, hence why they're likely not 1 of the factions for MKX.
I see no other explanation as to why Ed's favorite character's faction wouldn't be in MKX.

Yes, you've already said that, and I've explained why he probably wouldn't. We're going in circles here.

Spoiler:
Very crazy but interesting theory; however based on the recent preview of the first story chapter, we now know that the Sub in the Game is Kuai Liang. Johnny Cage says "I liked it better when we worked together." Johnny Cage has only been allied with Kuai Liang. He is the only sub-zero relevant in the comic up to this point. Therefore he is the sub-zero in the game. We have yet to learn the whereabouts of Bi-Han. It is safe to say that Kuai Ling becomes uncybered, and also becomes good again.
 
Re: [SPOILER, RUMOR] Sub-Zero's identity in MKX is...

The main Sub Zero Kuai Liang. Bi Han will be nothing but an alt. that has absolutely nothing to do with the story, unless Noob's involve with the story. Bi Han will never canonically become Sub Zero again, they wouldn't get rid of Noob just to make Bi Han Sub Zero again when they have his brother doing it just fine.

What about to change story since its all been told before? I'm sorry to burst your bubble but noob's not that big of a character imo.

I'm not sure what you're trying to say. Are you talking about the reboot?
Anyway Noob may not seem like a big character to you but, he's big enough for boon to know not to get rid of him just to bring Bi Han back as sub zero, when we already Kuai Liang as sub zero.

I mean Kuai's story has all ready been told before, he leaves the Lin Kuai, defeats Sektor and becomes grandmaster etc, why do a reboot with a new story if you're just going to keep it exactly the same as the last. I want something fresh, if I wanted the same old I would stick to Mortal Kombat 1 to Armageddon.

Maybe because Mortal Kombat isn't just about sub zero? If you're only here for sub zero then you should just stick with MK1 - MkA, because after reading the comics and watching the story trailer, it looks sub zero's going to do the exact things you listed.

Maybe. But that means Jax has to be with normal arms now, right?

He has robo arms again, but maybe this time it's exo-skeleton? or he may have had his arms removed again intentionally because he liked the advantages of them for kombat.

If not these... then NRS has no consistency with what happens when you die lol.

On MK3, Jax used those arms as an exoskeleton. It was then retconned that he lost his arms.

Maybe he will use an exo just like on MK3, because if he ripped his arms again just lol

Or maybe he saw Ermac and wanted a revenge. And he said "hey, isn't that guy we ripped his arms?". That would be more than bad luck.

I think so. But also from the trailer, Kuai Liang seems more Cold & Distant than usual, Telling Cassie and the Gang they are unwelcomed at the Lin Kuei. So I am curious are we going to find out why in the comics?! Or maybe something goes down in the story mode that we'll just have to wait and see! Either way i am glad its Kuai Liang and not Bi-Han. KL is the one that has become the real Sub Zero IMO!

After seeing the shaolin trailer i think Nrs may switching the roles of the subz by making kui lang the "evil" sub zero as he tries to fight both casiie and kung he could be controlled by quan chi and the blood dagger. The reason for masked sub zero saying "i am not my brother" in his an quan chis intro

If you guys felt bad about Sub-Zero's eyes, they have changed. He has pupils right now.

And I doubt he is "evil". He is probably testing them. Sub-Zero is a wise man.
