Fanfic / The New Era Mortal Kombat Vs Marvel Universe

Go To

The New Era: Mortal Kombat vs Marvel Universe is a rewrite of the original Mortal Kombat vs Marvel Universe by Snafu the Great.

Eight months before Shinnok's return, Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade would have died at the hands of Kronika's enforcer, Geras, has it not been for the intervention of Black Sky, the new Nightwolf and niece to her predecessor.

Warning them of the events that were to come following Kronika's rise to power, Johnny and the two women hatch Operation Montilyet - a relocation plan to an alternative Earthrealm - consisting of the Cage and Briggs families, the Matoka tribe, the Shirai Ryu and the Lin Kuei. It also coincides with the Elder Gods' plan for Raiden's champions: find the reincarnations of Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Princess Kitana and Jade and train them for the inevitable confrontation with their Revenants, who seek to absorb their souls.


There's just one small catch...

In a plan sanctioned by the Elder Gods (save for Cetrion), Raiden and Fujin ascend Johnny, Sonya, Jax, Kuai Liang, Hanzo Hasashi, and Nightwolf as Gods to better kombat Kronika, while Team S-F absorbs Blaze's essence and become demigods.

Sixteen years later, and the Exiled Gods are thriving in the New Earthrealm. They have also found the reincarnated kombatants and raised them as their own children, while having their own encounters with their fellow Gods, Avengers and the X-Men.

However, Kronika's attention turns to the New Earth, as she seeks to wipe out Raiden's remnants before initiating her New Era.


The remake has the following tropes:

  • 100% Adoration Rating: The Exiled Gods and their respective factions.
  • Action Girl: Plenty to go around from all four factions.
