As the worlds returned to normal, the Kombat Rage dissipated in its victims -
except the Tarkatans.
Through the Rage, the savage Outworld race has descended to an even greater
level of bloodlust.
Marking their foreheads with the blood of their enemies, they now storm
throughout the realms, dominating all.
Badly injured in the melee with the otherworldly invaders, Jax knew he must
enhance his cybernetics to save his own life.

"Death to Shang Tsung... Death to Shang Tsung... DEATH TO SHANG TSUNG!"
With no base of operations after their devastating losses in Outworld, Kitana
sought asylum in Earthrealm for her surviving Edenian Resistance fighters.
Raiden granted them Shang Tsung's abandoned island, where they would remain
hidden from mortal eyes.
Kitana and her warriors remade the former site of the Mortal Kombat tournament
into a bastion of beauty and Light.
To honor the god of Edenia, they renamed their new home Argus Island.
Through intense study, Raiden was able to unlock the secrets of the Rock of
Eternity and determine its function.
He decided to emulate it and create a Captain Marvel of Earthrealm. Raiden

discover that exposure to his homeworld's sun weakened him greatly.

Where Quan Chi acquired this stone is a mystery. Raiden must now decide between
servitude to an evil sorcerer... or mortality.
Though Dark Kahn was defeated, his consciousness lived on.
The Dark Lord's power and maliciousness found the perfect host in the body of
the wrathful Scorpion.
In the midst of his agony, Scorpion knew that he would soon be the most powerful
creature in the universe - if he survived the transformation.
Impressed with Captain Marvel's fighting ability but angered by his defeat at
the hero's hands,
Shang Tsung sought to create a race of super-warriors. They would have Captain
Marvel's abilities, but would be a perversion of the hero's image.
Through sorcery he combined blood from a torn piece of Captain Marvel's cape
with the flesh of a Tarkatan corpse.
Never before had his flesh pits echoed with the roar of such a monstrosity. With
an army of Super-Tarkatans, Shang Tsung will be invincible!

She must use the ring sparingly until she can find a way to replenish its power.
Fighting alongside the Forces of Light during the world-merge crisis, Sub-Zero
came to a realization.
He was no longer the assassin he had been; nor was he comfortable among the
self-proclaimed defenders of Earthrealm.
Inspired by one of the invaders, Sub-Zero decided he would work for the good of
the realm, but on his own terms.
He would be a mostly solitary figure, blending in with the dark and the cold.
Sub-Zero left the Lin Kuei and donned a new costume befitting this new endeavor.
But the Lin Kuei do not tolerate desertion, as he will soon discover....
Defeated, Shao Kahn was imprisoned in the Phantom Zone, used for holding

impending attack by the sorcerer Quan Chi.
On a distant planet, a huge pyramid unexpectedly rose from beneath the ground.
Its origin was unknown, but it seemed to emanate energy similar to what Batman
detected from the invading universe.

Hal Jordan knows only that its energy is dangerous - and that the Green Lantern
Corps must stop the Sinestro Corps at any cost.

Returning to Themyscira, Wonder Woman learned that strange relics had been found
scattered across the island: a sword, a shield and a golden amulet, all pulsing
with energy. Compelled to equip herself with the items, she was infused with

She and her Amazons are now unstoppable as they fight for the preservation of

attempted to steal Darkseid's soul, a source of immense power.
In the midst of the magical assault, however, Darkseid reversed the soul drain,
