As the forces of light struggle against the Emperor's forces, the realms of Earth and Outworld begin to merge. In cities around the world, Shao Kahn's fortresses burst through the streets. All the world is consumed by fire and ash as the souls of every human are ripped from their bodies and claimed by the Emperor. Earthrealm has shared Edenia's fate.
Lol, dramatic much? This started off as me just practising with some cloud brushes for an entirely different painting but the more I played around with it, the more apocalyptic it started to look and I just started turning into Kahn's invasion from MK3 mixed with some elements from the reboot. I always loved the Rooftop stage from MK3 and I was a little disappointed that Kahn's fortress didn't burst through the streets in MK9 but I suppose that wouldn't have fitted with their retconned loophole about merging the realms.
