Raiden...He's the freaking God of Thunder, hell he is a GOD. So why in the hell can't he beat anything that stands in his way? I've never understood this about Mortal Kombat if he is a God then why can't he just use his godly powers to stop everything?
Another thing.... Seeing that following the Mortal Kombat storyline is harder than quantum physics to follow when the last one you played was back when you were a child when does this Mortal Kombat take place after? Is it three? I noticed that Armageddon was obviously canon seeing the start of the game but that was changed by Raiden at the end of the game. So does that mean any game after three suddenly did not happen? Deadly Alliance and all of them?
