Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 7 - Scorpion & Sub Zero (Part 1)

The latest episode of Mortal Kombat: Legacy is officially online and aside from the premier installment, it's easily the story-beat many fans have been looking forward to the most - as we are finally presented with the iconic Scorpion/Sub-Zero rivalry.

The two characters battled it out over at our sister site, Game Rant, for the top spot on our list of the 10 Most Awesome Mortal Kombat Characters - since the pair, and their intertwined storylines, have been iconic staples in the game series from the beginning.

Director Kevin Tancharoen pulls some serious fan-service in this episode of Mortal Kombat Legacy. Instead of the zombie-like portrayal of the characters in the original Mortal Kombat feature film, this version sucessfully focuses on the motivations and character conflicts that have made Scorpion and Sub-Zero two of the more fascinating fighters in the game series.

While Tancharoen had already teased us with a far-away image of Legacy's Scorpion (and close-up of his spear), as well as the well-recieved shot of Sub-Zero, it was especially exciting to finally see the characters in action. While the Mortal Kombat webseries is far from the big-budget actioner Warner Bros. (and creator Ed Boon) would like to bring to theaters, some episodes have provided pretty great costume design and choreography - this one included.

Tancharoen may not have always delivered on some fans' expectations but, if nothing else, the episode succeeds in giving us faith that once part 2 airs, our memories of the plasticky Scorpion and Sub-Zero portrayals in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation will be wiped-clean.
