‘Super Power Beat Down’ Imagines A Fight Between The White Ranger And ‘Mortal Kombat’ Villain Scorpion [Video]
Walk into any of the hundreds of comic shops around the country and it won’t be long before you hear a classic “Who would win in a fight, X or Y?” debate. The folks at Super Power Beat Down and Bat In the Sun are asking the same questions, but they’re backing it up with research and simulations.
Take a look at the video below, which determines whether Mortal Kombat‘s Scorpion or the White Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers would emerge victorious from a throwdown. The White Ranger is already starting out with an advantage: Jason David Frank himself is arguing for the character he played. Scorpion only gets Matthew Mercer, the voice actor for Stryker in the latest Mortal Kombat game. In the video, White ranger is played by Alvin Hsing, while Scoprion is played by Peter Jang. See the clash of titans play out after the cut.
While the White Ranger’s costume has been modified with some sutble contemporary body armor (for safety in this choreographed battle, we presume), it’s kind of an interesting look — not unlike some of the fan art done by grown up Mighty Morphin fans. Sure, it’s not canonical (and would probably subtract from the magical spirit of an actual MMPR episode), but it’s kind of neat to see nonetheless.
So there you have it. White Ranger by head stabbing in the third round. It’s probably not a Zordon-sanctioned move, but it’s worth it just for the internal voice of Alpha whimpering “Ai-ai-ai” we’re all hearing in the back of our heads.
