Now, I like a good villain as much as the next guy, but Shinnok is just a full-blown-evil-d*ck-from hell.....literally! He's cool and all, skull hand powers are awesome. But I seen Shinnoks ending from Mortal Kombat X (brilliant game by the way) and the former Elder-God turned psychopath doesn't just want to control the realms, oh no! He doesn't want to destroy one particular realm, nope! He wants to destroy the whole d*mn universe! I don't want to give away anymore than I already have, but yeah, you should totally hate Shinnok.
So for fun let's say some crazy alter-dimensional-portal rips open and a whole bunch of universes, or "realms" are all cluttered together in a huge galactic mess, and guess who's got their evil pannies in a bunch? Pretty sure you can guess by this point, and as per usual, he's going to do his best to kill anything and everything with a pulse.....which is pretty depressing if you ask me! So all is lost right? Not if these four specific heros/heroines have anything to say about it! Don't worry Johnny Cage, you and Cassie can kick back, these guys got you.
1. Doctor Strange
There are plenty of super humans in the Marvel realm that could give Shinnok a good go, no doubt about that, but since Doctor Strange is coming out next year and its going to be incredible I'm sure, why not let the Sorcerer Supreme engage in mortal kombat with the Ruler of the Neitherealm, I can tell you now it wouldn't be boring. Stephen Strange is his realms go-to-guy when it comes to fending off mystic monsters, demons, evil spirits from dark dimensions, Slytherin House, y'know how it goes. In addition, he also happens to be one of the most powerful heros in the Marvel Universe, not that he's bragging or anything. He even knows karate, which means your face and/or vital organs are in trouble! So yeah sorry Shinnok, you'll be a pile of evil ash by the end of this one.
Sure she's a beloved Queen and a good person and a kind soul, but if push came to shove,FrozenElsa would totally murder you. Her powers are so amazing she can create an entire ice castle with little effort, send an entire country, prolly even the whole world, into an eternal winter, create living breathing sentient ice beings (sometimes without even knowing it)I mean she's practically an ice god in some sense. So whatching a Fallen God and an Ice God fight to the death sounds like a good time to me! Sorry Sub-Zero, cryomancers are sweet, but Disney Realms got a FrostDiety, and that's even sweeter! It's safe to say Shinnok's evil plans are totally "Frozen" in their tracks, heh-heh......yeah.....I'll go punch myself in the face now.
Not to sure what realm Kratos would hail from specifically, but who cares! This guy's the GOAT when it comes to viciously murdering gods, Greek gods to be specific. Having been tricked into killing his own family by Aries the God of war, Kratos took revenge by not only by killing Aries and taking his place as the new God of War, but he ended up being betrayed again, by Zues this time, thereby resulting in the massacre of d*mn near every God on Mount Olympus! Pretty sure Shinnok has some sweat beads rolling down his face staring this guy down. Both are Fallen Deities, both are stone-cold-killers, but Kratos is a good guy of sorts, less evil than Shinnok anyway, least he doesn't want to see the whole universe go up in smoke. It would be a brutal fight for sure but I'm confident Kratos will be the blood stained victor! I mean seriously, this guys got a collection of gods heads mounted on his wall.
And last but certainly not least....
The DC realm has plenty of Heros to choose from, but Ravens always been one of my personal favorites. The half-human, half-space-demon superheroine is probably best known for being a prominent member of the Teen Titans. She has a wide aray of powers to pick from, such as telekinesis, magic energy blast, hand-to-hand combat, mind reading......even ripping open holes into other dimensions destroying all life as we know it, the list goes on I assure you. Her emotions are her true catalyst however, if she feels any emotion too strongly her powers are amplified ten fold! One little temper tantrum from Raven and poof! An entire planet and civilization goes up in smoke! So yeah Raven has to be pretty aware of her emotions at all times, not an easy task. Which is kind of why I respect her as a superheroine, she has all this terrible awesome power, but she always keeps it in check, always keeps her cool and looks cool doing it. I know you rule your own realm and all Shinnok, but you got nothing on a bad*ss like Raven, except maybe your blood on her boots.
So there you have it! 4 champions, 1 evil douchebag, an awesome battle for the fate of every realm and a whole lot of good times.....for everybody but Shinnok. But hey crime doesn't pay. Hope you guys enjoyed reading and stay heroic!
