Mortal Kombat 2’s New Game Character Sets Up A Scorpion & Sub-Zero Team-Up
Mortal Kombat 2’s Quan Chi Means The Sequel Can Retcon Scorpion’s Family Tragedy
In Mortal Kombat, Cole Young teams up with Scorpion to defeat Sub-Zero after Scorpion recognizes Cole as one of his descendants. However, in Scorpion’s ending in Mortal Kombat 4, it is revealed that Quan Chi was actually behind the murder of Scorpion’s family and clan, using his sorcery abilities to manipulate Scorpion into thinking Sub-Zero was responsible.

They can get through to Noob Saibot, thus breaking him free from his blind rage, and the three of them can defeat Quan Chi. Cole, Scorpion, and Noob Saibot teaming up would make the most sense, and it would be a clever way for Mortal Kombat 2 to retcon the previous movie’s mistakes.
