Another week,another Mortal Kombat Legacy episode and as the title states its obviously about the god of thunder. Legacy shows a mix of both the classic style of Mortal Kombat lore and the newer grittier side. Raiden falls in the later.
Episode 6 Synopsis "Raiden"
The following episode represents director Kevin Tancharoen's "different take on the Mortal Kombat universe," combining the perfect amount of gritty realism mixed with a hint of mysticism... When Lord Raiden, God of Thunder and protector of Earth, finds himself in an earthly mental institution in the year 2011, his 'delusions' are treated with some rather primitive forms of therapy (involving an ECT machine and an ice pick). Nonetheless, Blue, his beautiful, fragile yet insane fellow inmate, is Raiden's only hope of escaping the mental hospital and making his way to the Mortal Kombat tournament to defend Earthrealm from Shao Khan.
Let this be known, mortals. The god of thunder CAN be drugged... but not lobotomized.
