What Could Have Been: A second season, which was Screwed by the Network, that would have connected the show to Mortal Kombat. Word of God says that the Everybody Dies ending would have been undone by the Elder Gods, who would have also punished Shao Khan by forbidding him from taking part of Mortal Kombat for 500 years. However, Shang Tsung would have won back Shao Khan's favor by enlisting Goro and representing Outworld in the Mortal Kombat tournament in his stead. Meanwhile, Taja and Siro would die of old age and Kung Lao would be killed in Mortal Kombat by Goro after seven days of fighting. Outworld would spend the next 500 years dominating the tournaments while Raiden searched for a new champion who could save Earthrealm.
