Scorpion original Mortal Kombat character
Scorpion is one of the original seven playable characters from the Mortal Kombat video game from 1992. The character is an undead ninja specter seeking revenge for his death at the hands of Quan Chi, a sorcerer and necromancer from the eternally-damned Netherealm. Scorpion was killed in cold blood by Sub Zero, a member of an opposing ninja clan, which saw Scorpion take his revenge in the first Mortal Kombat Shaolin Tournament by killing Sub Zero. Subsequently, Sub Zero’s brother, Kuai Liang, assumes the mantle of Sub-Zero as a tribute to his deceased older brother.
