Let me ask you a couple of questions, folks. Do you like uppercuts? Do you like snake people who have trouble figuring out when to stop saying the letter S? Do you like it when there are people who have their own first names tattooed across their chests just in case they forget? If you're like me, the answer to all three of those things is "yes," and that means that I have some very good news for you: You can find all of those wonderful things in the pages of Mortal Kombat X #19, available digitally this Sunday.
The series has been filling in the backstory of the game, and this time around, Shawn Kittelsen, Igor Vitorino, Oclair Albert and Veronica Gandini are revealing the origin of Outworld. Check out a preview!

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.

Those of you who aren't fans of Scorpion's new Jim Lee-designed costume (and apparently there are a lot of you) in the Injustcie: Gods Among Us game likely thought that was the biggest Mortal Kombat news of the week.
