How did the people who run the Bedlam House not notice that Raiden has blue blood?
Or freaking LIGHTING coruscating inside his eyes? Or hell how did they keep him there, they legally don't have the power to kidnap bums and then give them expensive drugs, food, and treatment without telling someone in the government and all Raiden woud have to said is "let me out of here" and legally they would have to. They can't hold onto him unless he was legally declared a ward of the state, and then the STATE would be paying for his treatment, but do we see /1/ govt agent?
Maybe its secretly run by Shao Kahn.
Then the psychiatrist must be Shang Tsung (and killed the real psychiatrist)?
About Scorpion and Sub-Zero...why are they in feudal Japan? Don't get me wrong, it was cool, but if everyone else is from the present day, and they're all supposed to be in the same tournament, how would they get there?
Well, okay, Scorpion's undead via Quan Chi's magic, so that's an easy explanation for how he'd live to the present day. As for Sub-Zero...how would that work? I know he's a Legacy Character and all, but Scorpion specifically calls him Bi-Han. Do present Bi-Han and his ancestor just happen to have the same name?
It's also possible that Bi-Han's relationship with Kuai-Liang has been changed from brother to ancestor, especially since the opening narration for Hanzo's story is framed around a member of the Lin Kuei telling a story to his child.
The second season states that the flashbacks of Kenshi and Sub Zero happened in feudal Japan. How they lived to reach the modern era has so far been ignored.
Bi-Han and Kuai Liang's ability to control ice comes from the fact that they're at the least one half cryomancer, an Outworld species, and all Outworld (and the other realms, really) inhabitants live for ridiculously long amounts of time (Shao Kahn, for example, is in the 100,000's range, if not millions, yet looks like he's 40 at most). Kenshi's could be explained by his encounter with Ermac.
Given that Kung Lao's outfit was changed whenever he was teleported to the island, who's to say that Bi-Han and Kenshi didn't have their attire upgraded to modern standards? It's not improbable to suggest that Raiden has been recruiting across time.
